  1. david and white are almost neck-and-neck, though david is in the 6-9 tackle range and white's avg slightly higher 7-10. thing is, white's being playing hard and he's racked up more of the non-tackling stats. for IDP, TDs are especially fluky, but white's also had his hand on forcing fumbles, sacks, ints, pass def (and with david's more recent performances only the latter). while it's hard to predict between two everydown LBs on the same team, white's been outstandingly solid after returning from his 3-week injury. both will see heavy tackling hosting the colts, though i imagine the colts' line to stave off sacks. my money is on white. hope this helps.
  2. saving an entire season's worth of points for a giant WEEK 16 breakout @ miami. fantasy championship MVP is written in the stars.
  3. i see 60/40 as a worst-case scenario for carson but certainly a possibility. based on carroll's quote posted by @Q Dog above, carson retains his role. based on this quote from the same article, " “Rashaad did great. I’m really fired up for that,” we can certainly expect the touches for penny. i see 60/40 or 70/30 in favor of carson. but gamescript could easily promote monday night for wilson, lockett, and metcalf + a spash of hollister. pay attention to linval joseph's' health. the viking's D is 1) only scary for the run when linval joseph plays, and 2) is the opposite of scary in the secondary. if joseph plays, we could easily see a more pass-happy game. linvel joseph is coming off an injury and is still "LIMITED" as of yesterday's practice.
  4. agreed that penny's injury undermined his potential during carson's first bout with fumbles as penny might have had a percentage / share of touches early in the season. but carson had a long run without fumbling, earned the lion's share, and this past weekend was not the "fumbleitis" sickness from earlier in the season. pete carroll said, “What Chris did yesterday, our offensive lineman knocked the ball out of his hands on the first one. The other one, it was a communication problem. It’s a little different than the guy just dropping the ball all over the place.” so apparently pete retains his faith in carson, yet also wants to give penny more touches. sounds clear that carson's 90% timeshare will be eaten into, and i'd suggest it could go as high as 60% carson / 40% penny, though 70/30 seems more pete carroll. agreed that carson is the better back: he has shown his prowess every sunday since mid-season of last year. i love to watch him run hard and punish defenses. but i think a key question is, who is the better play---if either---this sunday vs a stout vikings d-line? clearly we've seen the viking's defense slip this year, but the holes are in the secondary, not up front. while everson griffen isn't 100%, i read the run-defense as a product of linval joseph's health: if linval joseph's 329 pounds is missing from the d-line, i'd play carson. right now, linval joseph is coming off an injury and was "LIMITED" in thanksgiving's practice. but i think he's trending towards playing. if joseph plays, and with penny eating into touches, i'd sooner bench carson for someone with a better matchup. with carson's potential tethered to linval joseph's health---and a weak secondary promoting a pass-happy game script---seems like penny's a "sit" this week (or a "sit and wait" this week). my two cents. 1. i don't believe you. 2. check the waivers again. 3. pick up penny if he's out there. and even if penny's portion is only 25% this week, penny is worth owning going into the playoffs. like mattison, armstead, latavius murray, etc., penny is a goldmine handcuff for playoffs.
  5. turf toe is not a serious injury. the injury will not end a season, it will not end a career. it is literally a sprain of the toe, or rather a sprain of the joint when the toe is hyper-extended. it is however painful, and it requires immobilization to ensure proper healing. depending on the grade, turf toe can knock a player off the field for 1-4 weeks. we know this because we've seen turf toe for years. it's nothing new. but if you don't take rapoport's report as an indicator of clarity, i'd suggest the fact that josh gordon is running 22mph on the treadmill clarifies the lack of severity in his condition.
  6. we can trust rap sheet rapoport, and when he says the injury is not serious, i believe it. No way he gets traded to a playoff team. if the patriots had planned on trading him, they wouldn't have put him on IR---they would have dumped him cheaply and made room for sanu. gordon will go to waivers assuming he gains med clearance. as far as i understand it, josh gordon is running 22 mph on the treadmill. while this isn’t the 60mph flash fans expect, it’s an indicator that his injury should not be a factor and he should gain medical clearance. question is, will he gain this medical clearance before 4pm tuesday? if he does gain clearance, he’s released to waivers and all nfl teams get a crack via a system comparable to many fantasy waivers: reverse order of standings. this means the packers, bills, 49ers, etc. will most likely not get a shot. if it doesn’t happen tuesday, it could still happen later this season. if your league has an IR spot, he’s an easy hold. but really, if/when gordon does get picked up, how effective will he be? i suppose it depends on where… so we’re looking at dolphins, bengals, washington, falcons, jets. noteworthy: the steelers (2-4) and the chargers (2-5) are viable candidates (though both should have 3 wins by tuesday). although we’ve heard the contrary, i wouldn’t be surprised to see the bengals trade aj green and claim gordon off the waivers. seems like an economical move.
  7. dorsett is only the 4th option this sunday. once AB's splooge magnet interviews with goodell next week, AB may be on the exempt list and dorsett jumps back into his #3 spot. i'd suggest dorsett is at least a "hold" for now. breida has gone through great lengths to expand his threshold for pain. as @DekuTree points out: breida goes down with a flesh woound, breida gets up and keeps fighting and fighting and fighting. difficult to trust anyone in an offense that is clearly tanking. even if gesicki puts up a good game at some point this year, the dolphins do not want to win. with gesicki's production so volatile, he's daily fantasy use only in my notebook. i'd way sooner snatch travis benjamin off the waiver (even with mike williams trending towards playing), or some of the recently dropped RBs like gus edwards, justice hill, darwin thompson, frank gore, mattison, penny, and apparently peyton barber (who appears to be a thing, unlikely as it seems).
  8. i think gore will be a value in round 5 next year
  9. he doesn't have to be so bad but trubisky excels at being bad, so we must give him credit for that. and credit the packers defense against a top 10 offensive line. all in all, until i see 3 solid games back-to-back-to-back, i know where i stand with trubisky:
  10. absolutely a "buy low" candidate. montgomery had two runs where he clearly out-talented both cohen and davis in showcasing his elusiveness. while the other two RBs had the touches, montgomery looked better against what is clearly a great defense . the 27-yard reception was an outstanding catch. the usage is clearly discouraging, but if anything that drives montgomery's price down. davis looked like the lead back, and cohen was lining up in the slot as a WR. montgomery will emerge as the #1 back here---i have no doubt---however it's looking like an RBBC so his touches will be limited to the 10-14 range unless someone gets hurt. zero targets. good advice for my 2-kicker league. 100% true but patience, boogie... it'll come
  11. if you cut him, i will pick him up (because i have zero shares right now). too early to tell, and clearly the game script worked against him (rodgers getting sacked five times, low scoring and barely a need to throw) davis also replaced adams when adams left with his supposed "limp" but agreed, two more weeks will tell all. jimmy saw 89 targets from rodgers last season --- i don't see him getting more. literally, we so nothing for this guy. but he shouldn't be on the waivers just yet. also notably, no jake kumerow, and instead we saw davis. but i see this game as atypical: the rodgers shootouts are coming, and the low scoring puntfest against the toughest D in football (five sacks, 9 tackles for a loss) will only happen one more time (though next time at home).
  12. left the field for one play. when he returned, he was blocking aggressively and showed no signs of slowing down. no official word on any injury/limp. could have even been something as small as needing to adjust his cleats (like someone gave him a flat tire). wouldn't worry: the chicago defense was awesome and aaron rodgers was sacked regularly. that said, danielle hunter may be all over rodgers next week, and adams will face "rhodes closed" for his routes. still, i expect more production to come.
  13. he was also a top 5 TE in seattle: #4 in 2017, #2 in 2016 jimmy graham was #6 in TE targets last season with 89 --- he has no business being on a league's waiver. now a second season with aaron rodgers, i'd suggest your FAAB spending depends on who you're starting at TE. if you have one of the top six, bid low, and if you went zero-TE and took a jaboni, spend high (20%). also, sternberger is on I.R., so really the receiving threat is minimal (even though mlewis saw more targets last night than geronimo freakin' allison).
  14. can't wait to see which uniform he wears next! he's actually a sensitive individual who puts his team first. you just lack empathy.
  15. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, there are "those around the league" who believe the Raiders could look to void the $30.125 million Antonio Brown is owed in guaranteed money.
