  1. Rod Smith 2017 Season Outlook

    He can't be a classic Rotoworld hype-fail. His thread is less than 100 pages and no one's posted the "It's happening!" gif. His coach says he could be a three-down back, which is kind of meaningless. He averaged almost 4.5 YPC in the preseason, which is kind of meaningless, and he did catch passes in the preseason as well (7/57), which is kind of...well, you get it. Which is not to say that you shouldn't start him. I'm going to, but the words "Here, hold my beer..." echoed in my head while I added him to my lineup.

    If the NFL had an ounce of sense they'd offer a compromise right now. Drop all appeals and they'll reinstate him on 12/1. No need to pay the lawyers. No need to keep this in the news, which is the last thing that they want. It would also be perceived as fair, since many people believe that Zeke isn't serving 6 games for his actions, he's serving 4 for himself and 2 for what they should have given to Ray Rice.
  3. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    For those wondering, this does look like the end of the appeals that can affect Zeke's fantasy season. There is no route for an immediate stay, so the suspension is in effect. The option he has available would require the 2nd Circuit to hear his case en banc, which means it needs to be calendared like any other case, and that will take weeks. Obviously there are millionaires battling on both sides, so there might be some possibility of an unexpected development, but really...it's over. He'll be out until week 16. I would recommend holding for a day if you can. Despite what I wrote, this has been such a mess so far that I trust no one to speak to every possibility.

    For the most part, kickers are interchangeable. If he's not working, grab one who is. This looked like a good matchup...home, against a team with a reasonably good defense that can occasionally stop a drive. The opportunities were there, but he had a bad day. I wouldn't spend a lot of time agonizing over it. Just replace him. On a scale of 1-10, kicker worries tend to be a 2, and they're easy to fix.

    He's calling the 2nd circuit right now...
  6. Josh Gordon 2017 Season Outlook

    I think he's worth a roster spot in just about any league right now. He'll be an instant candidate for 10 targets per game, and that can easily translate into WR3/WR2 numbers. The position has been thin and riddled with underperformers this year, so even a lottery ticket has value. I'm just worried about the next few weeks. The league will be watching him, and his judgment stinks. If he decides to celebrate his reinstatement there's a chance he could weed himself out...literally.
  7. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    I don't think this changes his long-term outlook. The 2nd Circuit simply did what everyone else has done along the way. As long as his appeals are being heard, they don't want anything to happen that complicates their final decision. If Zeke were to serve a day of his suspension this weekend, and then they rule against the NFL, how do they compensate Elliot (and the Cowboys organization, for that matter) for a lost game that shouldn't have happened? Best to avoid having to sort that out, especially when there are no negative consequences associated with him playing one more game. Unless, of course, you're the Chiefs...
  8. Josh Gordon 2017 Season Outlook

    C'mon guys. We want you to have this thread, but please stay on topic and remain civil and respectful. Someone can have an alternative view without "trolling", and once you've expressed the same position once or twice, it's time to agree to disagree and move on. Remember...this is the Josh Gordon thread. Any protracted discussions of other available players, or direct comparisons of their value relative to Gordon belong in the Assistant Coach forum. Carry on...
  9. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    Just an FYI...if the final nail is in place today this thread will be locked for the next few weeks unless some other issues arise. The last round of posts when his appeal was rejected had about a 1-20 signal to noise ratio. No reason to go through that again. Plenty of room in the AC forum for questions about who to add or which Dallas RB will take the lead role.
  10. Waiver Wire Touts - Week 9

    A reminder, this topic is meant to help find fantasy assets that you may have overlooked. While it's OK to ask for rationale when it's not provided, this isn't the place to have a lengthy debate about details. If you think a recommendation is worthless, ignore it. If everyone has to slog through 200+ posts containing bickering, sarcasm, and CSBs in order to find a few names, the thread's usefulness drops off quickly.

    I believe that the decision is supposed to be before 7 PM on Wednesday. 22 hours to go. I do not share your optimism, but I'll take a little ray of sunshine on this otherwise gloomy day.
  12. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    There's enough precedent working against him that there's probably some doubt about whether he'll even try. It's a longshot at best.
  13. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    Not just yet. The judge stayed the ruling for 24 hours to give Zeke the opportunity to file an emergency appeal. If nothing changes, the TRO is lifted and the suspension begins tomorrow.
  14. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Season Outlook

    I believe that's what the judge assumes will happen if there is an appeal. No decision yet.
