  1. I think at best we are looking at a game time decision next Sunday for him. Unfortunately he doesn’t play until SNF. Potentially makes things tricky
  2. “Davis (concussion) is participating in practice Wednesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Davis' presence at practice doesn't necessarily indicate that he's cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, but his involvement can be taken as a sign that his condition is improving. Washington will reveal the extent of Davis' participation once the session concludes, but the veteran tight end looks like he'll probably be in line for a limited listing on Washington's first injury report of Week 6, per Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post. With Jordan Reed (concussion) trending toward another absence Sunday versus Miami, Davis will be in line to fill a starting role at tight end if he gains clearance to play this weekend.” As an Engram/Herndon owner, I believe that Vernon is going to be my choice this weekend against Miami, if he suits up.
  3. I’ll do you one further on San Fran and predict they finish as a top 3 fantasy defense, that should be rostered in all leagues. They have the best pass rush in the league imo so even if they give up points, they are still a great bet for sacks, ints, forced fumbles, and TDs. They haven’t even been giving up many points either, albeit to weaker opponents. They have given up 11 to TB, 17 to Cincy (final TD was a fluke 66 yarder with 30 seconds left when they were up 31), 20 to Pitt, and 3 to Cleveland. A floor of 7 points with a ceiling of 25-30 is exactly what you want in a defense. I also love that they are great at running the ball and are committed to being run heavy. They will be controlling time of possession and limiting the number of opportunities that opposing offenses have. Bye week being over with is one more reason I’m big on them.
  4. Anybody like Singletary as a buy low right now?
  5. This man said Kenyan Drake over Darrel lmaoo. We don’t know what the split is going to be on Sunday, but dropping him right now is crazy. He is 24 years old and new to the league. It’s not crazy to think that while he started behind Damien on the depth chart, that Andy doesn’t think more highly of him than Damien.
  6. Tricky situation especially with the Chiefs playing on SNF.. for now we just will have to wait on Damien’s status. If we are lucky we will know before the 1 o’clock games kick off.
  7. Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Morgan Burnett have all missed a second day of practice today. Gotta think a big weekend is on the horizon for Hollywood with the possibility of the Browns missing 3/4 of their starting secondary this weekend. Really struggling with the decision between him and McLaurin in my flex...
  8. “Either Damien Williams or LeSean McCoy has been the Chiefs’ featured back on 119 of 129 plays this season, or 92 percent. Neither was participating in the early portion of practice on Wednesday because of injuries. Darrel Williams and rookie Darwin Thompson, who between them have 10 plays this season, would be in line to get the work on Sunday against the Ravens. Thompson, a sixth-round draft pick, was impressive in training camp and the preseason and looked like he would get a portion of the work in the regular season until the Chiefs signed McCoy. Coach Andy Reid said he wants to make sure Thompson knows his assignments as a pass blocker before he gets a lot of playing time. “As long as I feel like he knows what he’s doing, I’m good with it,’’ Reid said. “He’ll stick it up in there and hit you. It’s just a matter of seeing it. He’s young so he hasn’t seen everything there is to see. He’s getting there. I feel comfortable with him in there.’’” -Adam Teicher, ESPN Chiefs reporter Drafted Darwin but have since dropped him. Still squarely on my radar however. If Shady and Williams miss this weekend, I think we could see his coming out party. Just a matter of gaining Andy’s trust in pass protection.
  9. He may require a fair bit of patience, and this is easy for me to say, as I have no shares of his, but I am confident come end of season, Sanders is the guy to own in the Philly backfield. Jordan Howard is not their best bet over the course of the season and honestly not really a threat imo, and Sproles is just a change of pace. Sanders has tried to do too much with his touches and I think he is a bit immature in his development still, but he has not exactly had much room to operate either. The entire offense looks out of rhythm, not just him. There is too much talent in that offense not to gel eventually. Once they do, I think Sanders will be at the center of it.
  10. I have always been a believer in Drake's talent level, despite his criminally low usage the previous three seasons in Miami. He has been awfully efficient with his limited touches every year, even while always playing in a dumpster fire of an offense. His pass catching abilities are what stand out about him especially. I think that whatever team trades for him will be looking to add that aspect to their offense. He is in the final year of his deal and I can almost guarantee he is dealt before the October 30th deadline, likely sooner than later. The rumors are already swirling, the Dolphins should be able to get a 5th/6th rounder for him, and there is no reason to keep him, at least that I can think of. I believe when thinking about potential landing spots for him, we should be looking at teams that lack a pass catching threat or RB depth generally. Off the top of my head the Jags, Packers, Panthers, Redskins, Cowboys, and Falcons come to mind. He gave an interview yesterday and came across as a real team first kinda guy, which is admirable given the situation in Miami and could prove attractive to suitors FWIW, I do not own any shares of Drake, but I like him as a potential buy-low and am willing to see how it all shakes out. Could prove to be valuable later in the season. What's everybody think?
  11. For those questioning what the hype is about, I would suggest watching his highlight tape from his rookie season. Kid has great size, speed, and chemistry with Darnold. Think he is a low end TE1 when he returns.
  12. Any thoughts on this guy? Is he a drop candidate with fewer positive game scripts on the horizon? Cant really see him playing much of a role with Bridgewater quarterbacking.
  13. For those of us streaming QB, I think Josh Allen has a pretty good chance to be our permanent guy. His rushing yards along with the Bills' willingness to use him as the goal line back, give him a high floor, while still possessing a high ceiling. He had four turnovers week 1 and still finished with 16 points. His throwing looks quite a bit better as well. Time will tell if he is matchup proof, but in the short term, he has another plus matchup this weekend with Cincinnati, which just got crushed by Jimmy G and the 49ers. I will be rolling him out there again and taking it week by week with him. Ideally he becomes matchup proof and we can utilize our bench to carry W/R/T players rather than another QB.
  14. Thats just it. He has a high floor as well as an incredibly high ceiling. They seem to like throwing screen passes to him and letting him do the rest, which looks damn successful thus far. They are also looking to go up top to him, with the help of the play fake, which Lamar has already mastered. The guy has great agility and acceleration. Harbaugh has also been raving about how good his hands are. Happy to have a part of this offense. Haven't been this excited about a waiver pick up since Kamara..
  15. Surprised at the lack of activity in this thread. This kid looks like a star in the making. Possible WR1 rest of the way.... 😧
