  1. I've been listening to the NY sports radio hosts crucify Bruce for weeks now. It makes me wonder, didn't they ever watch him play before April-July of 2016? His August with the Mets was horrific, but it was hardly unprecedented. In fact, it would have been surprising if he had pulled up stakes and moved to NY without disrupting the best streak of his career. It seems to have escaped their notice that he did right the ship a bit in September by batting .250 with 6 homers and .321 OBP. I don't know which Jay Bruce will show up in spring training or on opening day, but aside from the larger park resulting in a few lost homers I think Bruce will be exactly who's always been next season.
  2. Shady minus a thumb and Rex...a recipe for disaster.
  3. I think part of that will change, possibly this week. Cunningham did well with his 6 carries against a solid Jets defense. I don't think he's a better back than Gurley, but I'd be surprised if they don't try to change things up more often. The Rams must know that their offense isn't capable of generating a consistent running game with one predictable approach. With a 4-5 record they can experiment a bit since there's nothing to lose.
  4. You're observations are correct, but don't change the fact that he has the hardest path to fantasy production. He's a capable back, but he's not good enough to make something out of nothing. It's made worse by the Ravens' emphasis on the passing game and the fact that Dixon did well enough in his role. I think what we saw last night was what we can expect going forward. 50-60 yards and an occasional TD when the stars align. Flex play or bye week fill in, but not someone you can roll out consistently as an RB2.
  5. I need a near-impossible 29 points out of Shady. Full PPR.
  6. Some people say he's a rat, but if he can play...he's got a friend in me.
  7. Baltimore can be a death trap for RBs. It seems like whenever Flacco is ineffective their solution is "More Flacco!" I'm not a Ravens fan, so this is a subjective impression, but their running game is unpredictable and erratic. West is capable of putting up good numbers against a weak Steelers defense, but that doesn't mean that he'll have the opportunity.
  8. I think Draughn will be used more in the passing game.
  9. They don't mention any problems for McCoy even though they describe other players as limited. The fact that he's been through several practices this week makes it likely that he's better than he was when he played last time.
