  1. This was about as bad as he's looked all year besides in the New England game but still a decent fantasy day. I feel fine starting him every week and getting consistent 17-24 point games, it feels like he doesn't have much potential for a blow up game with the way they're calling plays but I'll take it
  2. Really tempted to trade him while his value is high if I can get a lead back with more assured touches, I was an Ingram owner last year and remember it being very hard to predict usage week to week. On the other hand Murray seems to have proven over the last couple games that he might have higher upside than Ingram did especially if gets the goal line work...Tough decisions ahead [...]
  3. I'm honestly not worried about his fantasy production being hampered too much by the weather, Allen is a solid fantasy play for his high rushing floor and hopefully a couple TDs through the air or on the ground. He hasn't hit on many big plays this year so all the weather means is short passes and maybe some extra ground yards which is exactly what his fantasy numbers have been based on every other week
  4. What are people thinking about him rest of season compared to other top tight ends? I haven't watched any Rams games, are his increased targets dependable going forward? I have Andrews on a bye and am thinking about burning a waiver claim on him if it seems like he might be startable beyond week 8. Everything I've read is very encouraging
  5. Been stashing my No.1 waiver priority to hopefully use on solid rest of season player. I have Mark Andrews on a bye so need a tight end. Is Gerald Everett worth a top bid/might he be a better option than Andrews long term? My running backs are sort of a mix unpredictable and hopeful stashes so I'd have to drop one (Marlon Mack, Todd Gurley, Lesean McCoy, Devin Singletary, Darrel Henderson). I only want to drop one of them of Everett might pan out to be a top 5-10 TE, any advice on Everett?
  6. Assuming that last game was an outlier, what are people thinking about his ability to produce with the upcoming schedule? [...] Anyone else concerned about the matchups or would I be crazy not to keep him as insurance?
  7. Just won a championship with: QB: Drew Brees RB: Marlon Mack RB: Jamaal Williams WR: Antonio Brown WR: Robert Foster TE: Jaylon Samuels Flex: Damien Williams DST: Chicago Bears K: Greg Zuerlein Was getting nervous facing the number one team who had the Mahomes/Hill combo and Chris Carson in the late game but was able to hold the lead thanks to the huge numbers Brown put up earlier. Lucky I was able to get both of the Williams' of waivers the last couple weeks and replace my more TD dependent backs Howard and Ingram. I also picked up CJ Anderson and was cursing at the numbers he was putting up on my bench. Who knew? Only in two leagues this year but may have taken the Championship in both, depending on how tomorrow goes
  8. Going back and forth between starting him or Foster today in the Championship. My thought is that McKenzie may have the safer floor than Foster but not the same big play potential. In the first game against the Pats the offense tried a handful of gadget plays to try to throw the defense off early so that could also add a couple extra touches (not that it did that much). Anyone else in the same boat?
  9. Any insight on who he'll draw in coverage against New England? I've read that Gilmore would shadow Zay Jones because "technically" he's the no.1 receiver but I'm suspicious of that theory and feel like New England will treat Foster as the true no.1. Rolling Foster out in my Championship because I never found a great replacement for AJ Green, hoping for another big day
  10. In Leagues that he has TE eligibility is he considered a must start over everyone except Kelce pretty much? My sense is that New Orleans generally seems to be more vulnerable through the air so I'm wondering about his touches dropping significantly from the New England game especially if it turns into a shootout
  11. Where's everyone at with Brees? I keep wanting to sit him for Josh Allen but haven't pulled the trigger either of the last two weeks and have been burned but somehow still limped into a Championship game. I know he's a different QB at home but I'm still concerned about the suddenly struggling offense against the Steelers D, they looked great last week against New England. Writers seem to predict a big bounce back game but I haven't seen a lot of reason to hopeful for that...
  12. He's gone down with injuries the last two games but always seems to come back into the game without limitations after a series or two. He was getting targeted early and often last week as a possession type receiver and just like last week he's got some upside with some gadget plays with the running backs all nursing injuries. He's definitely an intriguing play against New England
  13. I think I'd read Davis' role as a backup earlier was largely because he also played special teams and that Kelly was always the intended next man up as a pure RB after Brown was injured. I had not been closely monitoring this so I could be mistaken
  14. I've picked up him and Marcus Murphy and want to start one of them today in a close playoff matchup. I like Murphy for more touches but he's been somewhat limited when given opportunities so McKenzie has really intriguing upside this week, especially since the Bills offense seems to need to run trick plays to get anything going on the ground even with their starting running backs in. Unfortunately this could be extremely game flow dependent though
  15. Was considering picking him up and plugging him in but with the running back situation I see his value dropping in favor of Isaiah McKenzie, who got 7 targets last week as well as a 4 rushing attempts including a TD after Shady went out. Besides Josh Allen scrambles the Bills have had a tough time rushing all year so he could be the sneakier start than Foster
  16. For anyone above considering starting him this week over a more established starter, there could be a "wintry mix" for most of the game today in Buffalo so there's a chance his passing ceiling is lowered further and there'll be increased risk of turnovers. This could translate to more potential for ground yards/goal line tds as well but something to consider, especially with Shady out. FWIW I'm in the same boat still considering starting Allen over Brees. This was totally dependent on the higher upside from Allen but weather concerns may be moving me back to Brees for a somewhat safer floor.
  17. Any Brees owners benching him due to the matchup concerns/lack of production the last couple weeks? I'm having a hard time being excited about playing him but also nervous to put him on my bench in the playoffs. Anyone have insight on his history playing at Carolina? Weather looks like upper 40's and clear
  18. I'm pretty outmatched in my playoff semi-final due to injuries so I held out on starting him in hopes that Wilson gets the call tomorrow. Cannon has looked like the scrappier player so far but the volume is promising, 12 touches so far in the first half....he could still end up being a decent play next week against Green Bay for anyone that limps into the finals with an injury plagued roster like mine
  19. Yeah that's my dilemma. Definitely way more upside with Wilson if Breida is out but my other options are Mack or Ingram who are also hard to trust. I'm wondering if McGuire is the safest floor play or if I should wait it out for Wilson. I've also heard Cannon could be heavily involved on passing plays which would be a concern for McGuire potential. Also hard to trust a jet
  20. Pretty good last week against Buffalo when the workload shifted to him, did he have any games as the primary back last year that we can reference? Considering a start despite the tough matchup due to his presumed volume but also might wait to see how the RB situation in San Fran shakes out, I have Wilson Jr and would definitely prefer him of McGuire if Breida is out
  21. Not much hype over Shepard for someone who should be the Giants number one WR this week. Is this because of last weeks performance or is their something I'm missing on him? I know the passing game is limited due to Eli but after AJ Green went on IR I'm desperate for a solid receiver. Considering him over Curtis Samuel and Dante Pettis who are my other options.
