  1. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Let's pretend for a moment we agree he's unable to run between the tackles. What is the work share you're predicting for this backfield both this week and the rest of the season?
  2. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    I think it's really interesting you made a claim about experts saying he's a bell cow guy but refuse to bring any links to support the claim. It's kind of difficult to hold a discussion with someone who won't support their claims with links. You're criticizing experts for doing the very thing you're doing. I'm trying to take you seriously but you're not helping.

    Which experts have been saying he's a bell-cow back?
  4. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Lindsay week 2 highlights.
  5. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Who is saying this?
  6. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Fantasy football analysts know nothing, says the fantasy football analyst. I'll reserve judgement on comparing him to players. Immediately compares him to players.
  7. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Lindsay is such a great 3rd down guy they've started using him on 1st and 2nd downs as well.
  8. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Lindsay is the first undrafted rookie in NFL history to have 100+ yards from scrimmage in the first two games of his professional career. It doesn't seem like the coaches are in any hurry to bench him.
  9. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    I have no idea how he'll fare. But many pro level scatbacks were college scatbacks. I think we're foolish to not consider the possibility Lindsay may be some sort of freak of nature. Yes, NFL players are bigger, faster, stronger. But again, the fact he took such a heavy beating in college and held up just fine should at least make you pause. Maybe he'll break. Heck, I expect every rb to get injured regardless of size. But combine that college track record with what he's doing now and it at least has to make the coaches think he should perhaps be given the opportunity to fail.
  10. Ryan Braun 2018 Outlook

    Right now Braun is going around #20 outfielder. I don't see any realistic way he gets any significant time at second, but it's plausible he gets enough work at first to gain yahoo eligibility. Steamer is projecting him to hit 20 bombs while only getting 421 PA's. On the unlikely chance he manages to stay healthy, there's some value to be had.
  11. Royce Freeman 2018 Outlook

    Why do you think Lindsay was able to hold up under such a heavy workload in college but won't be able to handle it in the pros?
  12. Week 2 injury thread

    Gurley to the locker room.
  13. Duke Johnson 2018 Outlook

    I've passed panic stage and have moved into acceptance. I'm dropping him where I have him.
  14. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Seems like a great buy low opportunity. Won't have to compete with Landry and will get a better team in his next stop. I just bumped him up in my rankings.
  15. Giovani Bernard 2018 Outlook

    Considering they played on Thursday, that's a few extra days Mixon gets to recover. 2-4 weeks could end up being 1-3 games if he heals quickly. I'm conservative with my expectations though so ymmv. But even in that scenario, getting a starting rb on a decent team who will garner plenty of touches can definitely help many of us. I probably wouldn't burn a high ww position on him unless you're in desperate need of a short term rb boost but I'd definitely snag him if it didn't cost too much.
  16. Clay Buchholz 2018 Outlook

    Arizona is starting him tomorrow against the Mets. Lousy arm against a terrible offense, who wins?
  17. Brett Anderson 2018 Outlook

    He's back, baby! Dominated the minors for Oakland and they called him up to help their struggling rotation. Will break down soon enough, but he's healthy now!
  18. Duke Johnson 2018 Outlook

    I agree there are reasons to dismiss this game. But when it's combined with preseason I think it definitely becomes more alarming. I still think owners are effectively stuck with him as few would pay for his potential or last year's stats, but it's a troubling set of tea leaves we're working with so far. On the plus side, New Orleans should allow him to hit his upside this week.
  19. Waiver Wire - Week 1

    Why? He got no work week 1. Why is that changing and how much work will be get?
  20. Waiver Wire - Week 1

    Injuries hit rbs every year. Everybody chases the dart throw non elite wrs if you don't have studs. In ppr (which is what I'm discussing as standard skews to rb), there's usually some middling backup that has zero upside but is guaranteed mediocrity nobody wants. You can survive with 7-12 points from your rb while waiting to burn your ww position on some guy to emerge from either injury or some other reason. And zero rb doesn't literally mean zero rb drafted. It means late round boring limited upside options and gambles. Marshawn, James White, Thompson and Peterson, Crowell, Barber, Morris. Some will suck. But that's no different than drafting wrs. Any zero rb owners who drafted OBJ and Thomas and took some late round rbs like Peterson and James White have to be happy. Any rb guys in the same spot who took Fournette and Hunt have to be hurting. But that goes back to drafting the right guys regardless of strategy.
  21. Waiver Wire - Week 1

    Conner and Peterson were late round or preseason ww grabs. Yeldon looks to be a good grab. Hines looks like a solid ppr acquisition. Any strategy can work as long as you grab the right guys. Zero rb doesn't literally mean you don't draft any RBs. Just you draft them late and are active in the ww. Elite wr are as scarce as elite rb. And before any of you say all these rb I listed were drafted in your league, well then all those wrs would have been drafted too. And many times players who look like good week one pickups are flukes who end up back on the ww after they've flopped in your lineup or clogged your roster for awhile.
  22. Quincy Enunwa 2018 Outlook

    Isn't this the case with nearly every receiver? Beyond the uber studs, all players have off and on weeks. It's how many off weeks and how many on weeks that determines how valuable Enunwa can be.
  23. Duke Johnson 2018 Outlook

    He also had 0 catches in the preseason. I'm not cutting him but I'm definitely panicking.
  24. IDP Rankings/Talk

    Unless you have some insane depth, yes. This assumes you can play him at DE. If he's a lb in your league then I'd probably sit him if not dump him.
  25. Alfred Morris 2018 Outlook

    It's still unclear who will be the primary guy between Morris and Breida. I'm betting on Morris right now if any of them are able to do it, but it could go either way. Whoever is the backup will probably be pretty useless in most leagues.
