  1. Who would've thought, a RBBC with CJ Anderson and Gurley for the NFC Title. Sounds so strange.
  2. Deion Jones at CAR or Bobby Wagner vs KC?
  3. I won't start Kelly or CJA, more of a defensive add for me. Opponent has Gurley. He added Ballage. I bet it's a committee of some sort, but I bet Gurley plays. But, this just in as I type this .... GURLEY REMAINED SIDELINED FRIDAY.
  4. Sleeper Bot just said CJ Anderson first RB in after Todd on Sunday.
  5. Ha! Looks like we have the same guys. I have McGuire, J Williams, Ware, Landry and John Kelly. I'll PM you later.
  6. FFG's matchup column: Los Angeles Rams Passing Offense at Arizona Cardinals Passing Defense (Neutral Matchup) Jared Goff and this Rams passing offense have been trending in the wrong direction recently. Despite amassing 339 yards last week, the Rams have failed to find the end zone through the air in two straight games while Goff has thrown seven interceptions compared to just one touchdown in his last three games. Accuracy has been a huge issue for Goff, and it was on full display last week as he routinely sailed balls over his receivers while making poor decisions against what was a beatable Eagles secondary. Robert Woods continues to see a high volume of targets with at least nine in four straight games as he amasses solid, but not spectacular, numbers with just two touchdowns in his last 10 games. Brandin Cooks has been held to lackluster outings in three straight games as Josh Reynolds is earning an increased share of targets on the outside, finishing with a season-high 12 targets last week. Todd Gurley was one of the bright spots through the air last week though as he led the team in receptions and receiving yards to further display his versatility as their top player. The Cardinals have been proficient against the pass thanks primarily to the spectacular play from top cornerback Patrick Peterson. Opposing passing offenses are averaging just 212 passing yards per game and 7.0 yards per pass attempt--both metrics well within the top-10 in the league. Quarterbacks have scored just the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game when facing the Cardinals as they are typically under duress from a stout pass rush combined with half of the field shut down from Peterson's coverage. With Goff struggling to put the ball on the mark lately, a strong pass rush is the last thing he wants to face. Part of Arizona's success against the pass must be attributed to game scripts though, as they have typically been playing from far behind while playing terribly against the run, leading to this being very much a funnel defense. Look for Patrick Peterson to assist in shutting down these outside receivers with opportunities for Robert Woods coming out of the slot along with Gurley to contribute through the air from the backfield.
  7. FFG's matchup column: New York Jets Rushing Offense vs Green Bay Packers Rushing Defense (Neutral Matchup) With Isaiah Crowell moved to injured reserve, Elijah McGuire has moved into the Jets #1 running back spot and will see enough volume over the last two weeks to put him squarely in the conversation as a weekly flex option. The biggest problem is that McGuire has not been able to make anything happen with the opportunities he’s been given. Over the last four weeks, McGuire has rushed 47 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns, averaging a paltry 2.9 yards per carry. McGuire has been able to punch the ball in the end zone though, including the game-winning touchdown against the Bills two weeks ago. Trenton Cannon has a firm grip on the #2 job behind McGuire and the two have split the passing down work. Cannon has not fared better though, as he is averaging 2.1 yards per carry on 16 rushes over the last three weeks. The Jets offensive line is just not getting it done in the run game, and they have a very tough matchup against a Packers defensive front that has been shutting down the run cold as of late. The Packers run defense continued its solid play against the Bears this past, limiting Jordan Howard to 60 yards on 19 carries, and containing Tarik Cohen, who finished with five carries for 21 yards. The Packers linebackers also did a great job of spying Mitchell Trubisky, keeping him in the middle of the field and holding him to 16 yards on three carries, which was his third-lowest rushing total of the season. The Packers rank 22nd in the NFL, averaging 124.1 rushing yards allowed, but have played much better over the last three weeks, limiting their opponents to only 97 rushing yards per game. The Packers will be able to continue their stellar play up front this week against a Jets rushing offense that is missing Isaiah Crowell. The Jets offensive line has graded out as one of the least talented units in the NFL, while the Packers defensive line, anchored by Kenny Clark, has started to hit its stride.
