  1. I still think he's a hold but won't be starting again for a while. His targets/touches have been pretty low value (short dumps near the LOS) and Minshew spreads it around a lot. It's too early to bail on a rookie with so much talent though (who didn't have a preseason no less).
  2. DJax is definitely worth a pickup. They have no other receivers.
  3. I'd go McKinnon. You need a TD for Wilson to pay off (granted there's a decent shot this week). Either are in play for a FLEX spot this week.
  4. No haha. I'm just saying I went out and got him, which is part of the reason I used my top waiver. It's kind of a weird format league with limited term keepers so I'm not sure it would really be a gauge of his value to say who I traded. I gave up a WR2, 2 RB2s and future assets. CMC is not eligible to be kept.
  5. I definitely agree with you on ROS Ekeler > Kelley. But my point about the volume is that JJ has literally never been involved as Kelley was in only his second pro game. Melvin Gordon holdout was last year so JJ played the first 3 games without him. His carry counts were 6, 7, 5. In the 2018 games he played while Gordon was hurt his carry counts were 7, 8, 7, and 16 (career high ran for 58 yards). Through 2 games Kelley has 6 more carries than JJ had the entire year last year (which again includes 3 games without Gordon). I guess my point is that Jackson might eat into Kelley's snaps a little, but he's never been given a lot of carries, he's small and banged up. Kelley is the best guy to pound between the tackles and at the goal line. I think that role is safe and it's just as likely that JJ is phased out and/or back to his RB3 role he had when it was Gordon/Ekeler.
  6. I'm definitely more hyped about the touches than the numbers. Justin Jackson has had double digit carries once in his entire career. His career high in attempts is 16. This kid has now done it twice in his first two games in the league and surpassed JJ career high in carries by 7. Why wouldn't they keep running the ball? It almost got them a win against one of the best teams in the league. They have a rookie QB and clearly their best offensive pieces are RBs.
  7. Ingram, D-Jax, McKinnon, Shenault If I had McLaurin and/or Golladay for that slot I would play them haha I'm not that confident! Nah but I do like his role and matchup this week.
  8. Agreed. His offseason and how much praise he got + the confidence they have shown in making him the clear and only backup on gamedays gives me a little more comfort. I used my #1 claim on him (then traded for CMC).
  9. Rolling him out in my FLEX spot this week with confidence
  10. He's a decent spot start this week. Once Mostert and/or Coleman returns, I don't see him having much value. Would still rather have McKinnon this week and ROS for his pass catching and explosive play potential, but Wilson is probably the better TD bet this week and it wouldn't shock me to see him within +/- 2 touches of McKinnon.
  11. Hold for me as well but I could see him being very boom/bust this year.
  12. https://twitter.com/RobDemovsky/status/1308132699056599042 From LaFleur: "I know he wanted to go back in the game, I just told him, ‘Let's see how these next few series go and see if we need you,'"
  13. Watching the game, it seemed like he could've gone back in but the game was out of hand so they held him out. He was walking around on the sideline with his pads on. Didn't see him on the trainer's table or go back to the locker room at all. I'm not sure what play it happened on, but he absolutely dusted Okudah a few times on the balls he did catch. They just didn't really need him yesterday. Watch the reports but I'm cautiously optimistic he plays this week. If he's out, wouldn't expect it for long. Different injury then last year obviously, but that one when it happened he was obviously in pain and grabbing at his foot. I never saw a moment like that yesterday.
  14. You could say the exact same thing about Lewis and Gallman. As of right now Davis has less competition for touches.
  15. I think this is the fool's gold pickup of the week, even if he signs. Especially with so many other guys around the league going down. Let someone else in your league bid up based on the name. This team and backfield will be bad, Lewis is going to get the receiving work, and Gallman will be involved. I'd rather have Mike Davis, McKinnon, Henderson, Pittman, Lewis...
