  1. At most split the difference and let the guy keep Ingram for a 4th round pick and make sure a rule is in place next season.
  2. Kenyan Drake, Jared Cook and Steve Sims Jr. of all people carried me to my third straight title!
  3. 12 tm standard Starters: Tannehill, ARob, Sims Jr., Wilson, Carson, Boone, J Cook, Drake, Baltimore, Hopkins Bench/IR: Dalvin, Godwin, Marvin Jones, Miles Sanders
  4. I'm feeling Erickson as a sleeper this week. Watch the weather report in Miami though. Miami is obviously bad, but look at the games they've given up to outside receivers that are 5'11" or taller the last few weeks. Robby A 7/117/1, Alshon 9/137/1, OBJ 6/84/1 John Brown and Sterling Shepard had nice games as well. Compared to slot receivers (in case you assume Boyd will get all of the action) Tate 1/51/1 (lucky TD), Crowder 3/29/0, Agholor 3/41/0, Landry 10/148/2 (not gonna pretend this didn't happen although he does lineup outside on 40% of his snaps), Beasley 4/38/0 Erickson's snap percentage has been 80 and 76 since Ross returned while Ross received less snaps in his second week back 51 and 38%. I know what you're thinking, can't trust Dalton. I came across this tidbit on Football Outsiders. Dalton has only played one truly bad pass defense this season: the Cardinals (29th in pass defense DVOA coming into the week) in Week 5. And though the Bengals lost, Dalton had a good game, completing 71% of his passes for 6.9 yards per throw with two touchdowns, no interceptions, and only one sack. Meanwhile, he has played against each of the top five teams in pass defense DVOA: the Patriots, 49ers, Steelers, Ravens, and Bills. In those five contests, he completed 57% of his passes and a 6.0-yard average with four touchdowns, nine interceptions, and 16 sacks... The good news for Dalton is that his life is about to get a lot easier -- the Bengals play the Dolphins (last in pass defense DVOA, by a lot) this week before closing the year against the Browns (13th). https://www.footballoutsiders.com/quick-reads/2019/week-15-quick-reads
  5. Seahawks defense is crazy banged up and was vulnerable in the first place. Keep an eye on the injury report.
  6. Zimmer said literally the same thing about Thielen two weeks ago.
  7. I've been hearing respected experts tout Boone all season and he certainly passed the eye test last week, so the talent is there as far as I'm concerned. Both Mattison and Boone have looked great all season. Mattison was the highest regarded handcuff all season despite a poor PFF grade. This tells me the system adds value. So I do think it is a plug and play situation. [...]
  8. The backup RB has been getting touches all season in this offense and it hasn't stopped Cook from being an elite RB1. Why are people suddenly worried about Abdullah? If the answer is gamescript, then I'll remind you the Pack have only put up 20 and 21 the last two weeks at home vs Washington and Chicago respectively.
  9. Albert Wilson got 8 targets last week and broke 6 tackles. Monitor his health and the Miami weather Sunday but he could blow up this week in what could be a shootout.
  10. Bumping this post I made in the waiver thread: Steve Sims Jr. is looking extremely good to me this week as a WR3. Target share of 39% and 26% the last two weeks. His matchup in the slot this week is vs Corey Ballentine, who is one of the worst graded PFF corners in the NFL(34.4). Then there's this below. McLaurin lines up on DeAndre Baker's side of the field half of his snaps, perhaps funneling additional targets to Sims. Lastly, Sims returns both kicks and punts. So if your league gives points to player who score a special teams TD and he runs one back, your team gets 6 points. Unlikely but has one already this year.
