  1. Well Charles isn't going to get all of the touches to himself even if he's 100% healthy, so you could say it's already a "timeshare." If Charles goes down, I think Ware would be the back to own, as he would get the bulk of the carries and all of the goal line work, and West would be not worth starting. I accept that West might be the passing down back if Charles was hurt, and I play in mostly PPR leagues, so normally that would matter a whole heck of a lot, but I think Ware is talented enough as a runner that he would dominate carries and be easily more valuable than West.
  2. I agree. Ware is the guy. He's been firmly ahead of West this preseason from everything I've heard and read.
  3. I didn't own this guy last year but there were many times when I saw Bills games and wished I did. He still looked like he had plenty of juice, even when returning from minor knee or hamstring injuries. If he can stay relatively healthy, I think he'll have a much bigger year than last year, now that Karlos Williams isn't around to steal a bunch of TDs, and now that Tyrod is entrenched as the starter.
  4. Even though it seems like hes not being COMPLETELY forgotten this year, I still believe he's basically a lock for profit at his draft slot. He played through injuries all year last year and still never missed a beat. Imagine if he's healthy and if the talk of him running more deep/downfield routes is true? I got this guy for 7.5% of my auction budget and it felt like stealing. Normally you can draft him as your WR3 or WR4, but in my auction I went against the grain a bit and spent big on RBs and now Decker is sort of my de factor WR1. And I'm not even mad.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans running back Derrick Henry made the rounds on the lower bowl Monday night, signing one autograph after another prior to the team’s practice. Henry, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner, didn’t need to introduce himself. He’s already a popular guy in Nashville. “They were yelling my name,’’ Henry said with a smile. “There’s some Bama fans out here. I appreciate the support.” Henry really made his mark when the scrimmage started. He was one of the offense’s biggest stars on Monday night, displaying the same bruising running style and nifty moves he did while leading Alabama to another national championship. Henry got plenty of work last night behind running backDeMarco Murray. “He’s a stud. He’s a stud,’’ Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo said of Henry. “He’s definitely going to continue to get better. He has a few things to work on as far as keeping his pads down low when he gets down to the goal-line and things like that, but overall the guy is going to be a stud in this league. “There’s no question (he’s going to help this year). We have DeMarco leading the pack and Henry to come in and carry the load as well. I think it’s going to be a great one-two punch.” Henry scored two touchdowns on the night. His best run came on a 25-yard burst up the middle, when he showed great vision. He had several runs in the 8-10-yard range, but was stuffed at the two-yard line by defensive backMarqueston Huff not long after a touchdown run was called back because of a penalty. “I am just trying to get better,’’ Henry said. “I just want to come out here and compete with the offense. We have a good defense, and we’re trying to make them better. “Anything I can do to help the offense. … We want to be physical. We pride ourselves at being physical.”
  6. Projections I'm seeing seem to be expecting the Titans to hardly run the ball at all. Either that or their expecting David Cobb and Dexter McCluster to get a good significant carries. I don't see how Murray and Henry don't combine for at least 400 carries in the "exotic smash mouth" offense, but the RW draft guide for example has them down for 330 combined carries. Take the Henry projections with a grain of salt IMO...the carry totals seem too low to be taken seriously.
  7. I foresee the Titans backfield being split similarly to how the Panthers backfield was split in 2008/2009 when Jonathan Stewart was drafted there and they already had a stud in DeAngelo Williams. Their 2008 numbers were just gaudy, so I don't expect anything like that from Murray/Henry, but 2009 provides a more reasonable expectation in my eyes. For you youngins or those who simply don't remember back that far, here were their respective stats that year: 2008 DeAngelo: 273 carries, 1,515 yards, 18 TDs Stewart: 184 carries, 836 yards, 10 TDs 2009 DeAngelo: 216 carries, 1,117 yards, 7 TDs Stewart: 221 carries, 1,133 yards, 10 TDs No, I don't expect Murray and Henry to combine for 28 TDs like the Panthers backs did in 2008, but they could easily combine for the 17 those guys combined for in 2009, and I also think they will combine for 450 carries, with something like a 60/40 split in favor of Murray, which comes out to about ~180 carries for Henry.
  8. Kevin ChapmanVerified account ‏@ChapStarr 16h16 hours ago Congrats @ABREG_1 ! When asked why he was being congratulated by teammate(s?), Bregman tried to downplay it by saying he just won a card game. I think it's possible that he's been told exactly when he will be called up, thus the congratulations from his teammate(s). With the way he's being moved around the field to get exposure to LF and 3B, the Astros might have told him that they want him to get another few games, or another week or two of exposure to add to his flexibility once he's called up to the big club on _______. Just a hunch/theory.
  9. before anyone freaks out, the RW blurb had a major error. Moncada has 36 SB in 60 games this season, not 85 like it says in the blurb. He has 85 SB (when you combine this year and last year) in his 141 career games in the minors,
  10. 6 game hitting streak during which time he's gone 10-for-25 with 2 doubles, 1 HR, 7 RBI, and just 1 K. Average dipped below .300 very briefly at the start of this recent hitting streak, but he's back up to .314/.411/.596 on the season. His slugging % has dropped from his' unsustainable ~.700 of mid-May, but his AVG and OBP have now stayed above .300/.400 basically all season. I think he needs a bigger challenge...
  11. I guess it's a good sign that 4-for-5 with 3 RBI doesn't even generate any chatter on this guy? Seriously though, he had a mini-slump, 2-for-25 I think it was, and I was mildly concerned that the fun was over. But now 6-for-10 his last two games with 5 RBI, bringing his average back up to .324 after it dipped as low as .312. The fun continues...
  12. I need to know more about where his FB% and HR/FB rank with other baseball players before I'm willing to call him legit though.
  13. Can he maintain this? What do you mean by "this?" Can he hit 4 HR every 7 games? Is that really worth discussing? He's good. He's legit. He's not getting sent down. He's going to shatter the modest expectations that most had for him in April/early May.
  14. Early on he was hitting for average and not a lot else. At that time there were plenty of people who were predicting that he would only regress from there once the league got a book on him, the power was unlikely to show up, and he would probably get sent back to the minors. None of those predictions have come true.
