  1. Seems to be somewhat game plan specific — against any kind of sound run defense they wouldn’t have Tom hand the ball off this often. Gordon is now getting the looks to roll out every week. This usage is way more encouraging than last week when he made one big play.

    Agreed, he’s an easy sell high. Bailed me out this week when I had no other options but I don’t think much has fundamentally changed in this backfield.
  3. This KC defense is a joke. We all knew you could throw all day on them, but I’m surprised at how easily you can run all over them too.
  4. I mean as someone facing off against the Gronk/Brady stack I’m enjoying Gronk’s usage.

    If he fumbles again you won’t be able to sell him! Very encouraging to see him get that carry from the 2. After his last fumble we were worried he’d never be on the field for those opportunities again.
  6. What do you need for SNF/MNF?

    Up 32 with my Edelman and Gordon playing their Brady, Gronk and Gostkowski. Feeling confident that my guys are going to gobble up a lot of Brady’s production.

    I’ve been concerned about this ever since the wheels started to come off on Eli about two years ago. OBJ may well not have competent QB play for the rest of his prime, especially if the Giants blow their QB evaluation in next year’s draft.

    If nobody's elite, then everybody is! In the past having Gostowski (or Denver-kicker during the Peyton era) was a huge positional advantage. Neither of those teams are producing elite kicker numbers at the moment. There's currently only a 13 point differential between the K1 and the K6 across 5 games, less than 3 points per game. There's a 40 point difference between the RB1 and the RB6, or 8 points per game.

    Don't overthink your kickers. The elite options (including Zuerlein, when he's healthy) are always on prolific offenses that are nearly always playing with a lead, and are therefore willing to make long attempts whenever a drive stalls out past the 50. There are usually two or three of these guys, and then every other option is basically part of the same middle class. If you don't have an elite option, just stick with a guy on an okay offense that struggles in the red zone and take the 5-10 points every week, then switch during their bye. One of the worst things you can do is stream kickers every week based on the game's Vegas total and weather and past attempts. You always just wind up chasing last week's points and missing out on ceiling games, because it's impossible to really predict whether gamescript and individual situation will combine for the multiple long field goal day that results in a ceiling game.

    Yikes. He’s hurt us more in the games he’s played than in the games he hasn’t, which is an unusual way for a second round pick to bust.
  11. Devonta Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, and that reason is that Freeman set the league on fire in 2015 and 2016. That's a long time ago in football years and Freeman has done absolutely nothing for the people who drafted him this year. White is scoring lots of points now, and a week ago the concern would have been that Edelman's return would lead to fewer targets for White. But we've now seen White perform like a borderline RB1/2 even with all of the Pats weapons active. The guy getting White wins that trade.
  12. Matthew Stafford 2018 Outlook

    Stafford’s been pretty consistent since that Week 1 disaster. I’m dropping my kicker for Winston and seeing how that goes this week. Winston has been pretty streaky throughout his career and I don’t think you can rely on him as an every-week play, and Dalton is overdue for a Bad Andy game. Meanwhile I think Stafford is overdue for a true ceiling game considering the weapons at his disposal.
  13. Terrible FF terms

    I think the term "trade rape" has harmed the entire hobby. Aside from comparing an unbalanced fantasy football trade to an act of violence, it also reinforced the idea that every trade has a victim and a victimizer, and that kind of imagery has probably dissuaded hundreds of thousands of potential trades from going through over the years.
  14. LeSean McCoy 2018 Outlook

    So because I avoided the Bills offense like the plague this season I haven’t actually watched a game beginning to end. How has Shady looked? Is he just a victim of the worst offense in football or has he lost a few steps? The buy-low window is probably still open because his owner can’t be sure the real-life trade will go through.

    Can’t overthink a 20 point game. This is exactly why we drafted him at the suspension discount and agonized over that bench spot for four weeks.
