  1. Conner is made of glass. This isn't a secret. No one should be surprised. I'm not buying the Steelers "optimistic" thinking about Conner's return. I'd say he's out for 2-3 weeks minimum, which gives Snell plenty of time to take the reigns on the RB1 job. Even if and when Conner comes back, he's still going to be injury prone AF. So with or without Conner on the field, Snell carries a ton of upside in Pittsburgh.
  2. I don't know. Rodgers said the same thing about Kumerow last year, and nothing ever happened. Instead, we saw the rise of Lazard. Packers cut Kumerow yesterday. Anyway... I'm still leaning towards Lazard as the Packers WR2. Either way, I'm staying away from Lazard and MVS, unless I'm really thin at WR.
  3. Yikes. I drafted Swift in a 12-team PPR league, thinking he was going to be the RB1 in Detroit once he's healthy and ready to go. AP has turned this backfield into a colossal mess, and now I'm stuck with Swift, who's a huge question mark. I hate drafting early. Every fantasy football draft should ALWAYS be on Labor Day weekend or just days before the kickoff game. Ugh.
  4. Picked Freeman up in most of my leagues as a speculative add. He said he wants to win, so Jacksonville isn't exactly the best destination, but he'll clearly be the RB1 there with Fournette gone and Armstead out with COVID-19. I'm sure he wants to play somewhere, anywhere this season, so he'll lower his asking price. Jags would be a good situation if he wants RB1 work and to prove himself, and then maybe he can sign with a better team next year. I expect a deal to get done.
  5. I scooped up Armstead in every league available, no matter if I have solid RB depth or not, but I would be perfectly happy with Thompson on my roster as well, especially in PPR. A part of me even thinks Thompson is the better pickup. We'll see what happens.
  6. Picked up Thompson in a PPR league because Armstead was already taken and my team needs RB depth. To be honest, I think I got the better RB option. Of course, we all know pass-catching is Thompson's bread and butter, and he's reunited with his former head coach/current OC Jay Gruden in Jacksonville. Gruden knows how to use him properly. Plus I heard that Thompson and Minshew have on-field chemistry, so far, including in the red zone.
  7. Out of the entire rookie WR class of 2020, Reagor is the one I like the best because he's in a great situation to have an immediate impact and success right away. I own Reagor in a few leagues. I've been waiting until the double digit rounds to draft him, as early as the 11th. But I wouldn't object to low-key reaching for him in the 9th or 10th.
  8. So I had my draft for my main league yesterday. 12-team PPR keeper league. I reached for Taylor in the 2nd with the 2.02 pick. He probably would've fallen to me in the 3rd at 3.11, but I was unwilling to take that risk and wait that long, as most of the top RBs were already drafted or kept. Taylor is a stud, if you ask me. I think he's going to ball out with that Colts offensive line, eventually becoming the RB1. Mack is entering the final year of his contract with the Colts, and I expect him to leave next year. So if Taylor doesn't go off this year, then for sure in 2021, and he'll be my keeper in the 2nd next year.
  9. I can only think of one person that would do that...
  10. Gallman is inactive for MNF tonight. Does anyone know if he's injured, or is this just a healthy scratch? The Giants signed Buck Allen a couple months ago. So if anything happens to Saquon tonight, I guess Buck is the next man up. And I know y'all are shocked a Wayne Gallman thread is back at the top of this forum. My bad. 😂
  11. Well, I don't feel comfortable starting Richard or Washington, so it looks like I'm plugging in a sleeper WR in my Flex spot instead. I'm going to lose in the first round of the playoffs. This is a crushing blow.
  12. If Jacobs is ruled out, wouldn't Richard be the better play, especially in PPR?
  13. This is the worst possible scenario for the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Jacobs is a tough kid, so I believe he'll play, but it sounds like he's in bad shape. I really don't know what to do.
