  1. Well, he does have quite the ego, but...f----- it. Harris is locked in.
  2. He meant a blowout loss for NE. Personally, I think we'll get the typical TNF sluggish offense/defensive struggle. I'm not overly worried about gamescript but am still little concered if the touches will be there.
  3. Tough Thursday matchup. I think you generally have to start him but I will be benching to play Diontae Johnson this week.
  4. FWIW, a Boston friend seems to think Michel will still be involved because he's a first-round draft pick that was widely criticized and Bill will want to vindicate the pick. That sounds about right. He also thinks it will be a blowout, but I'm honestly not so sure about that.
  5. Cam Newton is the biggest threat to TD upside, true, but I'm pretty much beyond that in this game. My judgment will be based on potential touches. Cam will eat into that a bit, but as long as Cam's rushes keep the offense moving, that's a positive in my mind. Concerning Michel, at first glance, I think that his workload being confined to garbage time seems like it was just a case of a backup getting work in a blowout. But these are Patriots RBs we're talking about and it's the fantasy playoffs. I feel like you can never be too sure with this team. Bill's approach forces you to overthink the RB
  6. I don't know, I have the same questions. I don't think it's really clear right now whether last week was evidence of his regaining the lead role or simply a situational anomaly. I will say, though, in regard to that article, that I would think Michel playing more on special teams would seem to indicate that he's still the backup.
  7. What should we make of Michel's 11 touches last game? Cause for significant concern? I thought losing Burkhead would increase Harris' opportunities, but Michel seems to have killed that. Although, I could see it having been that Bill went with the second RB in a blowout to preserve his top back. It seemed like Harris got most of his carries in the first half.
  8. True, but gameflow doesn't seem like it will be favorable in this matchup.
  9. Are there any reasons to be optimistic this week?
  10. I might actually have to go with Fournette this week. All of my RB2 options are terrifying. It could be a low-key good matchup in PPR this week. If I'm just musing it looks to me like if Fournette is going to have one more usable fantasy week this year, this would be it.
  11. He generated 140 yards of offense in under 1.5 quarters and led them to a TD on their first drive when offense had been lifeless for weeks. I'd say that would qualify as being "immediately having success," despite the late INT. His passes certainly looked more crisp and catchable than anything I've seen Wentz throw all year.
  12. No choice for me but to play him, really. Rush yds. should help. Hoping to catch a little lighting in a bottle.
  13. I f*****g benched Wentz this morning and started Newton off the FA
  14. I was all in on this game. Great stuff coming from this kid, you just hope he maintains a similar level of production once Thielen returns. He's a must-start for the foreseeable future, but it's still going to be tough for me benching some quality options to start him each week. If you landed this guy late in the draft, he's been a gift from the fantasy gods for the dreadful year 2020. I think drafting 2 or 3 rookie receivers in the later rounds will be a standard strategy for me when the WR draft class is particularly strong. Draft three high-end prospects, and I like my chances that just one
  15. This guy is such a throwback. His style of running through people rather than around them hasn't been applied so effectively for generations. You really have to go back to Campbell and Dickerson to find guys that really fit that description so thoroughly. Henry doesn't run with quite the tenacity of those guys or display the incredible vision and balance that they did, but he arguably has a stronger burst and top-end speed. In that regard, he's sort of a modern hyrbrid combining the physicality of a bygone era with the rare size/speed combination that today's scouting departments drool over: H
  16. Fair enough. My "league-winning" comment is looking at things in a vacuum in terms of the secondary matchups, but I wouldn't be betting on it. As it is, though, I think he'll still turn out some decent games down the stretch. You'll surely still have much bigger problems to worry about. He does appear to be hobbled by his situation, so the question is can it be improved with a sophomore QB and HC who are on a steep learning curve. Like I said, time will tell, so I'm just going to be patient. I'm trying to keep the faith, but I'm a natural cynic. If I indulge in pessimism a bit here, I would
  17. Wow, tough crowd. Murray is a second-year NFL QB who was something of a project coming out of college. He's pretty damn good for what we thought he would be, but he definitely needs to develop more as a passer. Time will tell. This was always gonna be a tough matchup for AZ. If your complaint is that Hopkins doesn't seem to get enough attention from him, you'd be totally right. Maybe a full year of preparation will get their chemistry where it needs to be. It's definitely frustrating to watch Murray completely ignore half of the field in critical situations. I'm far from an expert QB analys
  18. Benched without hesitation. Way too much risk with him in this situation. Not only do you figure Hurts could steal yards and TDs from Wentz, you also have to account for the extremely short leash on Wentz. If he comes out playing like a bottom-5 QB again, I'd imagine we could see Hurts by the second half. It's hard to walk away from probably the best fantasy matchup on his schedule with the knowledge that he could still put up good passing numbers in a reduced role, but it's not worth it with so much on the line. Take the 15-20 points that you can confidently get from a replacement QB, an
  19. If your league doesn't allow for replacement designations, you might be able to pick up Ertz and play him Monday night if something happens before then. It wouldn't cover any last minute chaos on Tuesday, but I think that any positives on Tuesday morning would likely just mean that the infected players and their close contacts woild be inactive. Of course, Andrews could be one of those players, but then you can just get his backup. If the Ravens travel to Pittsburgh on Monday, you can be pretty confident that the game will happen.
