  1. ...and pretty sure Hopkins had a different qb last year throwing to him... I would guess that Tennessee is a similar defense to last year,..a few different players, sure....but still a lot of the same players and coaches... But I think you can safely compare arob/bortels vs Tennessee 2015 vs potential 2016 numbers a LOT more than Hoyer/Hopkins 2015 vs osweiler/Hopkins 2016.... That isn't even the same qb !!!!
  2. Drafted him ahead of TY Hilton and Brandon he is my #3 wr ...yikes...with his past numbers vs Tennessee I am starting him in flex and crossing my fingers....
  3. Bears do have some better matchup after their bye....Are we forgetting that the first few games were a total mess...that is when Cutler and Langford struggled..the team did better with Hoyer and Howard, but when Hoyer went down, they struggled again.... I have a feeling that the repoire between Cutler and Langford gives them the best chance....which isn't a great chance...but they had some yardage success last year when Forte was out running the Cutler/Langford connection. Langford was money last year catching screen passes all day long...He has the repoire with Cutler as a safety valve and the other 2 don't yet... They are struggling bad enough at present to give Cutler/Langford another try IMO..... My hunch is Langford starts either this week, or for sure week 10.... Anyone who has Langford maybe should hope he doesn't start, as whomever does will likely struggle against Purple Rain D!!!
  4. Blount walking to locker cart, no guess is he is done for 1st half and 50/50 for second half
  5. Blount's injury looked minor...had a trainer rubbing his leg...He might be back in 2nd half...hard to say
  6. Steelers always go for 2. No XP attempts. good point
  7. Rank these Kickers for this week only: Myers (jac) vs TEN; Boswell vs IND; Josh Brown vs NYJ;
  8. thoughts on Boswell as a K ??? seems like he is on a high scoring offense
  9. Is Meyers worth grabbing over keeping say Josh Brown,NYG kicker? Just grabbed him off the scrap heap last week, as he didnt miss a kick all year and he gets me 2 E.P...I realize that is just dumb luck, but if the NYG offense looks that bad again that they cannot even get into or near the red zone, that equals no FG attempts.. NYJ defense isnt terrible, but eli manning sure looked bad last week against WASH...or is Washington D really that good all of a sudden... to my next question, would most of you feel comfortable this week starting NE defense vs Philly? I know Philly looked terrible on Thanksgiving, but the DET receiving core looked great and NE looks beat up..and Sam Bradford could make the Philly offense look much different than sanchez does... Wash. is available, as is Chicago.....Matt cassell is pretty bad... Is Wash a better play this week or worse than New England vs Philly ?? also what about Miami defense vs Baltimore set of replacement players ....any value there ??
  10. I have Blount and I need a big game from him, but honestly all the PATS WR's being injured really hurts him...If the other WR's cannot spread the field, they will likely use Bolden and James White more as receivers out of the backfield...leaving Blount on the bench...Is Amendola back already ? or still out?? Based on the chart, most should start Blount, but the injuries sure affect that spacing part....yet you have to weigh in on Denver run defense and overall defense vs Philadelphia defense and how poorly they have been playing recently.. They looked awful against Detroit (allbeit Detroit has an arrow pointing up since the Packer game and Philadelphia has an arrow pointing down)..... I really wanted to get David Johnson and would have started him, as my only other option is Langford for my RB2, so based on what I have, I really have to start Blount....He likely wont get LESS carries than Langford..... If I had Rawls, I would start him with confidence over Blount....Murray would depend on Ryan Matthews health...
  11. lol surprisingly, in my league I still got 18 points for Hoyer and would have only gotten 21 for Big ben Had I started Derrick Carr, he would have gotten 30+ points... I told you it was going to be bad..mainly ONLY because I started him... Had I not started him, Hoyer would have had 7 TD's and Brees would have had 5
  12. Sitting Big Ben for Hoyer.. Most moves like THIS blew up in my face this year...but after starting this week against Calvin Johnson, I need a LOT Of make up points, and Big Ben will do fine vs Seattle, but not get me the make up points I need this week. Starting GB defense should have been a sure thing, too...NOT Anyone who starts him, beware of my bad luck... I have the 3rd Most points in my league and my record is 5 and 6 !!!!
  13. I just added him to the end of my bench with Matt Jones..hopefully the new expanded role over the bye week will get him more touches....a team that is basically eliminated for all intensive purposes is going to give the young guys the rock to get valuable learning experience....and a team with RBBC, has no clear starter. The goal I believe this year was for him to eventually be the starter..that didn't go very good, so now they have to see if this guy is really this bad and a bust, or if he turns a corner and has a chance at being THE GUY next year. Worth a stash because of their crappy record...obviously if the Detroit brass was really high on Bell, they wouldn't have drafted this GUY in the first place. They are likely looking ahead to next year with giving him more touches, as he sure hasnt earned that through his play...same can be said to some extent for Matt Jones.... I am not very confident that either does very well, but for an end of the bench hail mary, why not ???
  14. If you have him and nothing else half way decent on your team for flex, play him with confidence..if he does good, trade him for whatever you can get from some fool after this week... every league has one guy who ONLY looks at the stats and doesnt read anything into them..... like the fact that Matt Jones is back in College for one week against a college level Defense...
  15. hoping Forte is out one more week, but if not, Jones will get his first start for my team in the FLEX...nice to have him en cue for his best matchup of the season on tap... whomever posted the rest of the season schedule like it was gravy, not sure I agree... this running attack on WASH is terrible....but so is N.O. whole defense....and if Kirk can score early, both Alfred and Jones will get multiple opportunities to get going.... but, this is likely coming to a screeching halt next week.. whomever said "watch and Learn" I agree with them 100%....I'll take it a step further and if his prediction comes true (which I think it will) two words as far as step 2 of the learning process SELL RIGHT AFTER this game... His stock will likely be almost as high as it was earlier in the year when he had his one big game and then promptly fell off a cliff.. I literally picked him up 2 weeks ago when Bell went down to eye up this week's I didnt think I would get langford I do agree Alfred Morris is a goner after this year, so at some point when Washington officially falls out of playoff picture, Jones will get more work...1.) he is a rookie 2.) they need to know what they have in him, which has been hard to judge thus far from a putrid O-Line...So, I see them riding Jones more later in the season and moving personnel around (maybe even bringing in FA O-linemen if needed to get the run blocking thing going)...However, I am sure if there are good FA O-linemen out there, they wouldn't be FA's in the first place....which is why they likely make some measured improvement on the O-line in the off season through the draft and free agency
