    Seemed like a no brainer blow up spot this week, but the Bengals under Marvin Lewis ALWAYS suck in road prime time games. I don't expect Bengals to be serious contenders, but they'll be better than last night. Better games ahead.

    Matt. Breida.
  3. Matt Breida 2018 Outlook

    Yes firing him up this week. Rams can be run on, but their offense forces teams to play catch up. Breida also gets work in the passing game if that's the scenario this week, so I'm using Breida where I have him, as long as practice goes fine this week. He was limited yesterday and today, which we would expect, but I fully expect him to play.
  4. Jameis Winston 2018 Outlook

    Also, Winston is at home which gives him a bump IMO. Additionally, everyone is scared of the Cleveland defense but they currently rank #20 in passing yards allowed per game. I think a big reason QBs haven't had monster games against them (other than Carr) is because they haven't allowed many passing TDs - only 9 on the year so far. However, most RBs have had great games against them - Conner, Kamara, Crowell, Lynch, Allen, Gordon - all had double digits, and a few monsters in there. Tampa has NO running game at all, so I don't see how Barber/Jones have any type of monster game. Forcing Jameis to score more.
  5. Jameis Winston 2018 Outlook

    Not to be AC, but I'm going Winston over Rivers in a few spots (seems to be a common debate this week). The O/U is about a TD higher in the TB/Cleveland game, and the Bucs are only favored by 3.5, where as LA is favored by 6.5. So Vegas expects a higher scoring, closer game in Tampa and I think that spells more work for Jameis. Tampa's defense is garbage, so Cleveland should be able to put up points. Tampa has no running game at all, again, leading to more work for Jameis. Of course he'll have a few turnovers, that's who he is, but I fully expect at least 300 yards and a few TDs to go with 2-3 INTs. Still plenty of points in my league.

    I did this SAME exact thing in 3 different leagues. I typically stream defenses, and it was AZ or Denver pretty much for each league. Figured I would go with the home team. Christ. To top it all of, in one of the leagues, my opponent played Denver D against me!
  7. Raheem Mostert 2018 Outlook

    I absolutely agree that the term league winner is tossed around way too often. I try not to use it unless I really think a guy can be that for you. If Breida suffers a serious injury, and it's Mostert/Morris in the backfield for San Fran, I imagine Mostert will be AT LEAST flex worthy and most likely RB2ish. Jerick McKinnon isn't a crazy good RB. Everyone drafted him super high this year because of the scheme. Mike Anderson, Tatum Bell, Reuben Droughns, Mike Bell, Selvin Young, etc. The Shannahan system has ALWAYS produced top RB production from guys who weren't very special. If Peyton Barber gets injured, and now Ron Jones has the backfield all to himself, I could care less. If Breida gets injured and now Mostert is the starter for Shanny, absolutely that guy will be valuable and history has shown, he will also be very productive. Freeman wasn't anything special either until Shannahan showed up in 2015. Edit: Adding to this, the 49ers are 3rd in the league in rush yards/game, and only 13th in attempts. So they are producing way higher than you would expect per attempt, even on a crappy team. So yes, if Breida ended up seriously hurt, and Mostert was the starting RB, yes he would possibly be a league winner.
  8. Raheem Mostert 2018 Outlook

    No - I make up this narrative on the basis he would essentially be the starting RB on a Shannahan offense, assuming he continues to work ahead of Morris.
  9. Philip Rivers 2018 Outlook

    Phillip Rivers is a stud IMO - start your studs. Also the Titans pass defense is middle of the road. Also, the "Thursday night" narrative I think should be done with. Thursday night games so far: Week 1: 30 total points - first game of the season so obviously not a great showing Week 2: 57 total points Week 3: 38 total points - Browns vs. Jets - watdya expect? Week 4: 69 total points Week 5: 62 total points Week 6: 47 total points There have been plenty of points this year for Thursday nights unless it was the very first game of the season, or Browns/Jets. With that said, I don't expect much scoring from tonight's offenses. Sorry went off on a tangent there. Rivers is set and forget IMO unless you grabbed someone like Jameis and can play match ups.
  10. Raheem Mostert 2018 Outlook

    For real - plus as stated many times, the Shannahan system churns out top tier RB production from anyone. I would no way start Mostret this week, but Breida has a knack for getting nicked up. If one of these times turns out to be serious, and it's only Mostert and Morris left standing, Mostert might become a league winner down the stretch. Even without a Breida injury, if Mostert can prove to be the #2 in the offense, I think he'll provide some nice FLEX value in that case.
  11. Jermaine Kearse 2018 Outlook

    Vikings slot corner Mike Hughes recently went to IR for what it's worth. I grabbed Kearse this week in a few leagues. Not starting him yet, but if he shows out again vs. Minny, I am def confident in him. Enunwa has a high ankle sprain so I think he's out at least a couple weeks. Plus Kearse is a solid player who's done it before. I think Kearse becomes what we wanted Enunwa to be: Darnold's go to slot guy who's going to get a high market share of targets.
  12. I would stay with your team. Fournette and Cook could be zeros ROS for all we know. And your WRs are getting healthy.
  13. Is this a fair trade? WHIR.

    Hard to tell without the rest of your team. I think that is a lot to give up for 1 player, but I do like Mixon >> Ingram ROS.
  14. No - Keke is nasty and I don't trust Crabtree.
  15. Howard for Sanders? WHIR

    100% YES. Sanders is a top 15 WR this year, and Howard is a bum. Plus you're stacked at RB ahead of Howard. Should have said yes as soon as it came through IMO.
