  1. On pace for 1,445 receiving yards and people are complaining. SMH.
  2. Dumb trolls. Go to the Lat Murray thread.
  3. Before Gordon is a poor decision but let's not act like anyone knew Thomas would start this hot.
  4. It's not a cramp but if he's doing drills on the side he's fine. It's not a long term injury. Just annoying when they face Suckallo.
  5. Guys get hurt all the time and have excellent careers, a la Frank Gore and more recently Keenan Allen. You guys are way too early to start dinging his career because of his injury history to date. Guy came back strong from a torn ACL last season. ACL injuries can be impossible to avoid. At this point all he has done is overcome. How often do you get a full 16 games out of a player these days, and especially RBs. Cook will be alright. Don't start judging just yet because he hasn't been a stud when the offense is firing on all cylinders in the passing game. R. E. L. A. X.
  6. Yeah because your earning potential is over his base contract, let alone a future contract worth more.
  7. Here is the bottom line. Julio fell to where he did because he relatively just does not fulfill top 5 WR upside in the TD department. OBJ has always performed well in both yardage and TD numbers. That's why he's projected as high or higher than Julio. Although we can't always utilize past season numbers to project future numbers that's essentially what projections in fantasy football is. Sure there are variables that could impact the numbers both directions but that's why we have ADP. To sit here and prematurely wonder if OBJ is going to fall off the map is quite ridiculous after one sub-par game. If we've learned nothing less in fantasy football I think we've learned to not overreact in the first several games of the season. That type of overreaction is what loses fantasy football leagues more than anything. I mean for crying out loud he had 11 catches week 1. Sit back and enjoy owning one of the best talents we've ever seen at WR.
  8. Bold bet there after each of them just had career fantasy games.
  9. At the end of the day he came back on really short notice and with very limited time to practice. Gordon owners, myself included, were fortunate to get the TD this week. I do think we should temper expectations over the next couple of weeks but there's no reason he can't be a flex moving forward until he hits stride with his teammates. I do think we underestimate how important time in the huddle with the starting QB is. I'm starting to think Gordon is a WR2 overall this year but will have several weeks as a WR1 and could come on at the end of the season to be a league winner. Caveat he does face Denver/Baltimore towards the end of season. I just hope as a fourth round pick he's closer to the WR12 than the WR 24. Also I think I'm already having trust issues with Tyrod Taylor although the offensive line played pretty well in pass protection.
  10. At one point in the game the carry split was like 80%/20%. Murray only got work at the very end to run out time. Now where are all the morons who were worried about Murray? Crickets per usual.
  11. I agree and all picks in the first several rounds should be starting. I haven't seen Cook fall past a third so he should be rolled out. I also think that we take preseason into account way too much. You can get a few tidbits but coaches intentionally hide game strategy and personnel.
  12. AP had over 15 carries per game that season. It was sporadic and game based. He was not eased.
  13. Murray is nothing but a safety net that will get 30-35% of work to spell Cook. Thats typical of an NFL backfield. I've been saying it all preseason. Hold me accountable. It might be 60/40 the first game but Cook is going to eat this year unless Minnesota is up big in the 4th quarter.
  14. -Closer to 20 total for Cook -10 total for LM
  15. I purchased Dalvin in both of my Auction leagues. $200 budget and he went for $45 and $42 respectively. For comparison all other RB's ranging from Gurley to Gordon went anywhere from mid $50's to low $70's. McCaffrey went for an average of $47, Mixon for $43, Howard for $37, and McKinnon for $35. So this basically put Dalvin in the range of McCaffrey/Mixon. McCaffrey/Mixon stock has risen quite a bit these last two weeks while Cook's has sunk. I believe that the new market rate for Cook is about right and I'm still okay with taking him as my RB1 at 12th-14th overall. I think if Cook slips past 16th overall he's really good value there. If healthy I think Cook will finish in the RB5-RB8 range.
  16. Not a truther but everyone on this list and def Hill. I'd take Amari and ARob over Hill.
  17. I would be happy with those two at the turn of a 12 team and worry about WR with rounds 3-4.
  18. Cooper's draft stock has risen to that range. In my auction Baldwin went $10 cheaper than Cooper. I agree they prob should be gone but sometimes they fall because RB drops off end of round 3. I bet one of them is still available.
  19. I'm picking 10th in a 12 team snake next week. If he gets back to me in the 3rd round I'd pick him over Baldwin and Diggs. That's about the range.
  20. I think they are b2b now. I still think Cam and Anderson vulture TDs from McCaffrey the same a few will get vultured by Murray. Does the number of proven catches by McCaffrey outweigh Cook being on a better offense? That's a really close call right now. I think most would choose McCaffrey right now but it's a closer call for me.
  21. Ha rookies are the individuals who haven't witnessed enough pre-season smoke. They're saving Dalvin by limiting his touches now. He might not have enough touches to be top 5 but he will to warrant his current ADP around 12th-13th overall.
  22. Wait a guy averages 2.4 yards/carry in a preseason game and now he gets 60 percent of the touches. You guys are morons and the reason while Cook is turning into a steal in drafts.
