  1. Frank Gore 2018 Outlook

    I just picked him up (nobody even put a WW claim in on him overnight). I think for the reasons you both mention - the Drake fumble and the Lions run defense - that Gore could be a good option for some owners with players on their bye week. Drake has been getting less carries than Gore to begin with, but with that terrible fumble at the goal line vs Chicago, one would think Drake's leash is shorter than ever. Of course since Miami is coached by Adam Gase, it could end up being the complete opposite too.
  2. Odell Beckham Jr. 2018 Outlook

    He's about the same in my league (#22) and adding to your point, Odell's points per game would be even lower if not for his touchdown pass (which is in all likelihood, not a repeatable event). Yes he scored those points and they count, but his numbers as a straight WR are even lower than they appear, because of that play.
  3. I essentially did the same thing last year too. My main league has 2 Flex spots...one is for RB/WR and the other is for WR/TE. Meaning you can start a max of 3 RB's or a minimum of 2. And a max of 4 WR's. Last year, CMC and Duke Johnson were my best RB's. But my usual lineup had AB/Tyreek/Thielen/Tate in at WR and Flex spots. That helped me win the league. As you say, it doesn't mean RB's aren't important at all...but if you focus on (and get lucky with) the right WR's, you can certainly succeed.
  4. I'm a Jets fan, so that makes this even better to think of THAT reference!
  5. John Conner has bigger concerns than fantasy football
  6. It's a 3-way tie for first place in my main league (.25 PPR auction). It's currently a 3-way tie for 1st place and as far as RB's go... One team has Gurley (and Saquan). One team has Conner (and Howard + Collins). One team has Gordon (and CMC). However last year in the same league, I was able to win the title with CMC as my top RB. My RB2 for most of the year was probably Duke Johnson. The owner who finished in second, his top RB was McCoy. So anything can end up happening.
  7. Cooper drops too many passes, and has a history before this season of completely disappearing in games. Also, I think relying on Gruden's word or plans was a risky proposition. For a guy who hadn't coached since 2008 and who many thought the game may have passed him by, the way he built his roster this offseason was...not optimal. And I know a lot of people thought Gruden's "great" history with WR's would make Cooper into something better than he had ever been before. But I researched Gruden's WR1 history, and it was not nearly as spectacular as some people think. With all that said, there will still be many people who pick Cooper earlier than they should next season, because it *seems* like he should be a dominant WR.
  8. I agree with you that roster construction doesn't need to follow specific rules. I actually went similar to you in my one league without keepers, as I went WR/WR/RB/TE based on the draft slot I got (10th in a 10-teamer). But on the flip side, I'm not sure you solved your RB spot by trading for McCoy
  9. The main trend I've noticed from this fantasy season, is a continuation of a previous trend... The trend is that Amari Cooper stinks (but that he'll still be overdrafted and defended to the death by some people).

    It truly is maddening how the play-by-play guy does that.

    Aaron Jones wasn't in the game for that play. But it's still his fault that Beathard got sacked.

    I think you're onto something. It's almost as if a good runner like Aaron Jones might make them a better offense.

    Aaron Jones wasn't in the game for that play. But it's still his fault that Rodgers got sacked.

    Thanks, that confirms what I told my friend as well.
