  1. I play in a waiver priority league but have hoarded my number 2 priority and am putting in a claim in Brown. Probably equates to 30-40 pct FAAB
  2. 12-Team Yahoo PPR WR's: Julio/Hopkins/Godwin RB's: Carson + Zero RB (Shady, Gore, Singleterry, Penny, and a couple other stashes) Player w/ Number 1 priority won't use it except for can't miss RB1 prospect. M. Brown owner dropped on Tuesday, 2nd waivers process on Sat. Pull the trigger?
  3. Noise, according to CBS's Ben Gretch: Given it was an island game, most people probably saw the Steelers run an offense heavy on jet motion and wildcat formations. Jaylen Samuels was a focal point, but not at the expense of James Conner, and both were in on several plays. The running back tandem led the team in a tie with eight targets each, and part of why they each caught all eight of their targets was that many were tip passes on motion plays. Samuels even wound up with a passing line of 3-for-3 for 31 yards, all three of which were tip passes to Conner. Samuels' eight targets combined for negative-19 air yards, meaning on average he caught the ball 2.4 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Conner's touchdown reception came on a sprint out where he was out in a short curl route before he showed off plenty of after-the-catch ability for the score, but even with some positive air yards on that play his air yards total for the day was negative-9 yards. In fact, while Mason Rudolph finished with what looks like a sterling passing line of 24-for-28 for 229 yards and two scores, he totaled just 95 air yards on the night for an aDOT of 3.4, which is tiny for a quarterback and would have been even lower if not for a third quarter downfield shot to Diontae Johnson that went for a 43-yard touchdown. It was a gimmicky offense and it worked perfectly against the Bengals, but whether they will continue with that offense to the same degree next week is very much up in the air. These types of moves are often one-game switches, and while we might see some of this incorporated going forward, I expect a more traditional offense next week. I would have a hard time starting Samuels in Week 5, despite his productivity, unless I was very thin at RB. I counted seven direct snaps he took in the wildcat, including his rushing touchdown, and the passing stats from that formation added to his Fantasy total. If I had to guess, I'd expect more like two or three direct snaps next week. Then there's the issue of his receiving role, and while he did catch a few passes on dumpoffs that weren't designed tip passes, there's no question the scheme helped boost his receiving line to eight catches and 57 yards. He'd be an upside play on the hope he's still incorporated in similarly creative ways, but it's always a bit thin to trust gimmicky production to carry over.
  4. Signal (big shift in philosophy to get Samuels more involved in the offense as a PPR jack-of-all-trades) or Noise (one-off performance against sive-like Bengals run defense)? If it's the former, then Samuels is not just a hand-cuff anymore; he would be a RB2...
  5. I think that his outlook for fantasy is really good.
  6. IF you managed to get to the Championship with TT, he's bringing you home the hardware.
  7. Mixon for Carson? These fumbles are causing me to FREAK OUT, man!
  8. A Khal on a snap count is no Khal at all...
  9. A Khal with no goal line work is no Khal at all
  10. Here's how it went down: REID: "There's a new Sheriff in Town, Williams. Shady. I brought him in to be a fantasy league-winning RB1, with heavy involvement in all facets of the running and passing game." WILLIAMS: (Cries Meekly) SHADY: "That's right. I am going to Win Leagues for people who drafted me." (I am a Shady owner, so possibly a little biased.)
  11. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are planning on Evan Engram "playing a massive role" this season. Advice: Per Raanan, the Giants' passing game is "expected to revolve around" Engram and Saquon Barkley, especially while Eli Manning is under center. Engram barely played this preseason, catching his lone summer target for a nine-yard gain, but Raanan admits the team kept Engram in "bubble wrap" in preparation for his huge year ahead. If he's able to stay healthy, Engram will have a serious shot to be this year's George Kittle as a major breakout candidate who should threaten 90 catches and 1,000-plus yards.
