Hmm. . .  Brieda-Gus-Mixon and can only play 2 . . .  it so tempting to go for the lamar+Gus stack but I have to pass in ppr scoring. . .:)

 

I want t plug him in against OAK  and watch him rumble n a run heavy game. You have to figure he' going to get  15 - 20 touches with all of the gl work

I was leaning towards starting Josh Adams with the news out of Philly, but with no Collins I'm starting Gus the Bus easy! Raiders will rush for 250+ at least vs this college team who has everyone planning their off-season vacations. Collins was the only guy I was worried about by starting Gus. But he gone!

Anyone know if Gus can catch out of the backfield? Did he do that at Rutgers?

Im starting him over Aaron Jones.. I think with this news I put him in a similar category as Jones and Brieda. I think I’d rank Brieda ahead of him this week, but it’s close.

I’ve seen multiple commentators move Gus up to top 15 RB play now. Jones is closer to top 20 in most rankings. 

 

Long term I’d rather have Jones, but this week I’ll go with Gus

thats just called over thinking imo

 

Jones has been a top 10 since taking over and has feasted

 

I would want to start both, but if I could only start one, I am still going with the proven

Jones has been inside top 15 in every ranking I’ve seen no?

The average composite I have for him based on sites I use puts him at 17. But since this the Gus thread don’t want to derail it.

 

i think they are both top 15 plays and I just prefer the game plan and opponent of Gus better

I’ve seen him no lower than 14. Anyways Gus should do well.

 

cincy is actually worse than the raiders on the ground in tds yards and most other stats. I’d say Gus goes 17/107/1

Lol just look at even the updates ESPN rankings.  Long term outlook and this week only are completely different discussions. Jones hasn’t touched the ball more than 15 times and gets a tough Vikings defense.

 

Gus gets the raiders defense and is paired with Lamar Jackson... I like both players!! I’m saying I would rank them comparable, and if you think that’s outrageous, well, I’ll be here after the game to either eat crow or not.

 

Gus is a top 15 play this week and I rank him above Jones this week, although also a top 15 play.

If he can catch or not, I don't think it'll matter much if his QB only completes like 5-10 passes. 

 

I bet he catches 1 pass though for a few yards.

Ravens found their starter with Jackson at QB. If Flacco returns it may not be as easy for Gus though. Solid RB2 going forward in standard with Lamar Jackson at QB.

Nice yardage, but runni qbs suck stats from everyone. Goal line may be a problem for Gus as long as Jackson is qb.
