  1. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    I hope he's suspended right now. That would mean we get him back for the last week of the regular season and the playoffs. If he pushes this thing back any further and looses, he will be out of the playoffs. And let's not kid ourselves, he is going to loose this case. This circuit just dealt with the Tom Brady challenge and said the NFL has the power to discipline as it sees fit. They are not going to all of a sudden say this is different.

    My 2 cents: The fact that McC gave Ty Mont all that work with broken ribs and flack jacket is not a good sign for AJ imo. My memory/ impression is that McC is a one back kind of guy. To rush Ty back like that to me says he doesn't tryst AJ even after blowing up in Dallas. The fact that Ty dropped an easy TD, which I am guessing is not unrelated to the fact that he has multiple broken ribs and is wearing a flack jacket, and McC STILL trotted him out there adds even more concern that he just really does not trust AJ. AJ mentioned that he ran at least one bad rout and was still learning in an article last week and McC mentioned that "it takes time" to work guys in. Do not like these tea leaves. Thinking it will be Ty Mont as the bell cow once he's fully healed. With A Rod out and the O line in ruins it probably will not matter anyway.
  3. Actually, both are doing considerable better than Mike Gillislee who was my only other option (I started AJ)
  4. Going to guess it his broken ribs. If he continues in an even split with AJ after that, I'm taking that as a strong indication that McCarthy is reinstalling T Mont as a bell cow once his ribs get right barring a blow up by AJ.
  5. I can't see the game but Box score says even split between T Mont and AJ. Clearly both are getting stuffed. Any clear reason why they are rolling T Mont out there with broken ribs right before a bye?

    Just think how old DMC is going to feel the first time he gets popped this season. Can you tell I bet on A Morris?

    I own Zeke and Demarco Murray so, yeah, I'll be rolling him out for the foreseeable future.

    I think the way to trade Zeke, if you want to, is to give to try to survive the first two weeks of his suspension. His value will only grow as his suspension diminishes. His value is rock bottom right now. Plus, if there is a stretch to try to survive, its the bye weeks. Take a look at your schedule. You might be in more fair fights than you think.

    He is going to serve this thing the whole way out starting week 7. Based on the way this thing has oozed through the courts so far, it doesn't seem to me like we will get an appeal filed, response, hearing and then ruling before week 7. If Zeke serves part of his suspension week 7, then what logic would the court have for delaying the rest of his suspension? Plus, it is my understanding the 5th Circuit would burn unions at the stake if they could find a precedent. I say GOOD. Serve now and NOT during the fantasy playoffs.

    McCarthy did mention "young guys" and things "taking time" in that Demovsky article. AJ also said he ran the wrong rout on that awesome catch he made in Dallas. They could take it slow while he gets the playbook down.

    Great! That gives hope! Maybe he wants to limit the # of RBs he has to have active on game day.

    Posted this on the AJ thread, interested to see what the T Monty thread take is vs AJ. Ron Demovsky has an interesting article on his Twitter feed "Packers may have their one-two RB punch in T Mont and AJ" I can only post a link to his Twitter feed because ESPN insists on redirecting my to their app to read the article. https://mobile.twitter.com/RobDemovsky?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author The most interesting and concerning part of the article to me is this: "[TM + AJ] could give Mike McCarthy the one-two punch in the backfield he has long talked about." McCarthy: "I hope to have a one-four punch. That's why we drafted three running bscks. But it takes time." McCarthy: "But this is not a One man show. It's going to take them all so I want to be able make hard decisions about who's going to be on the 46 there. That's what this league is all about. Ultimately, we haven't had that this year. But that's what good football teams do." Sounds like the Pack could be trying to build a Pats-style RBBC and have only been delayed in doing so because 3/4ths of their guys are rookies. Did not like reading this. I am wondering what the "on the 46" was in reference too. Was there a critical play last week on the 46 yard line? Might have just been a throw away comment but maybe a clue?

    What is taking these judges so long?? Can I file as an interested party?? I can give them a cardiogram if they doubt the harm this whole thing has caused me!
