Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

Jack Doyle (hip) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Advice: Doyle didn't appear hurt in Sunday's win against the Redskins, so perhaps the Colts are just giving him a maintenance day. Even with Eric Ebron beginning to see more run, Doyle remained close to an every-down player in Week 2, seeing the field on 59-of-61 offensive snaps. Doyle will be a TE2 consideration if he suits up against the Eagles in Week 3.

More: colts.com

(Rotoworld.com)

 

 

Offensive Snap count totals

Week 1

Doyle - 77

Ebron - 37

 

Week 2

Doyle - 59

Ebron - 16

 

Yeah beginning to see more run even after the coach said his week 1 snap count would be in that area.

Yeah i know the colts blew out the skins and didn't need to pass didn't need Ebron but still.

I trade Melvin for Hopkins 

after the rumors ekeler was gonna split touches 

then I bench Hyde for a freaking gallman 

after rumor Breida was gonna split carries 

 

 

Well RW's blurbs were just ahead of the time. Ekeler and Breida are actually PPR flex now. Not bad RW, not bad.

Then the Clayton retraction:
 

 

Rotoworld blurb still up as of this post.

I'm sure the people who write the blurbs you see on the main page are some lib community college-type  dropouts, but its funny to see the way they phrase things differently for black and white players and coaches.

 

Even at the site of a dying thing like fantasy football, to have silly antics like that is just ridiculous.

I agree the OBJ one was pretty dumb, but fantasy football is dying? Sure hope not!

If you're referring to the OBJ blurb, I took that as sarcasm and a jab at Eli:

But in general, I realized a looooong time ago that the people writing these blurbs change their mind with the direction of the wind as quickly as anyone else on these boards. It's always smart to read the article/tweet yourself instead of just Rotoworlds interpretation of said source.

It seems that any direction Silva is going on twitter, these blurbs will go (maybe that's common knowledge). He has been on a rampage with NYG  taking Barkley #2 over a QB.

LOL:

 

Tavon Austin (groin) is out for Week 7.

There could be a distinct lack of Cowboys jet sweeps against the Redskins.

By "better coaching staff" do they mean someone who can teach Dak how to throw a football?  When I see Dak "play" quarterback, I don't think coaching is the problem...

 

Jerry Jones confirmed the Cowboys still view Dak Prescott as the quarterback of the future.

"Dak is the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said in his weekly radio spot. "He’s young, and he’s going to get extended." There is no ambiguity there despite Prescott's struggles over the last year. If Dallas wants Prescott to succeed long-term, they need to get him a better coaching staff.

Will Fuller will be going on his fourth year, not fifth. Why would the Texans have to decide on a team option this off-season?

 

Will Fuller (knee) will undergo surgery this week.
Fuller will be sidelined 6-9 months. His timetable has him returning at some point in training camp if he avoids setbacks. Fuller has been one of the most injury prone wideouts in the league the last three seasons, playing in 31-of-48 career games. The Texans will need to make a decision on his fifth-year option this offseason

Varying points of Bell's upcoming payday...  In a span of 8 days Bell went from becoming one of the highest paid backs in the league, to having no guarantee that he will be able to cash in, to becoming overpaid.  What a difference a week makes.  

 

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports impending free agent Le'Veon Bell is seeking $17 million annually.
It's $3 million higher than Todd Gurley's average salary. Bell also wants $45 million guaranteed. It's a lot of money for a 27-year-old coming off a holdout at a devalued position, but Bell is going to get overpaid this offseason. With the Steelers expected to transition tag Bell, teams may be forced to frontload Bell's contract. Nov 18 - 12:03 PM
 
Unsigned Steelers franchise player Le'Veon Bell will not report by Tuesday's 4PM ET deadline and is out for the remainder of the 2018 season.
What a disaster. By not reporting, Bell forfeits the remaining $6.84 million on his $14.544 million tender. 26-year-old Bell has framed this as betting on himself and doing what is right for his fellow running backs, but this is money he will never make back. There is no guarantee a 27-year-old runner is going to cash in on the open market after sitting out an entire season healthy. Even if he does, a running back passing up $14.544 million guaranteed for one season of play in the modern NFL is not a sound business decision. It's not fair, of course, but it is reality. James Conner will finish out the year as a true bell-cow back/elite RB1. The Steelers could theoretically tag Bell again in the spring, but the sides will undoubtedly divorce. Nov 13 - 3:48 PM
 

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Le'Veon Bell isn't expected to report before Tuesday's franchise tag deadline.

It means Bell will forfeit his remaining $6.84 million salary and sit out the entire season. Bell already counts as a third-year franchise player for 2019, so there's not much upside in him returning to a timeshare with James Conner. He also avoids injury and potentially extends his career. Bell will either be transition tagged or allowed to walk next offseason, where he'll become one of the highest paid backs in the league. The Steelers can move forward with Conner under team control through 2020.

Peyton Barber rushed 18 times for 106 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs' Week 11 loss to the Giants.

Advice: He nearly scored a second touchdown on the goal line, but fumbled it forward into the cradling arms of Mike Evans.

 

 

WRONG, WRONG.

 

From the box score.

  Jameis Winston rushed to the left for 3 yard gain. Jameis Winston fumbled. Mike Evans recovered fumble for a touchdown (Cairo Santos made PAT)

Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Marcus Mariota suffered a stinger Week 11 against the Colts.

The coach added Mariota is not in the concussion protocol, and he is hopeful the quarterback will be able to play Monday night against the Titans. It is good news Mariota did not re-injure his troublesome elbow, but it is concerning he is dealing with another nerve injury. Blaine Gabbert will get the start if Mariota cannot return. If that happens, the Texans DST will be the top play on the board.
 
Close but no good. lol

Colts promoted RB Jonathan Williams from the practice squad.

The Colts are not known to be dealing with any running back injuries, so Williams will likely be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Colts.
 
 
 
 
i bet the colts manage to win that game

Marlon Mack was forced from Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a concussion and will not return.

Drake was ruled out late in the fourth quarter. He was having a strong game before going down, rushing 15 times for 85 yards while adding two receptions. He will have the full seven days to get cleared for Week 13 against the Bills. Jordan Wilkins would be the next man up on early downs.
 
Drake plays for the Dolphins.  He was not ruled out for the game.  He came back in.  Mack was ruled out but he wasn't replaced by the assumed "next man up."  He was replaced by Nyheim Hines on both early and passing downs.  I am not sure Wilkins came back in the game.  Patience in posting would have been better than posting information that was incorrect on several fronts.  :wacko:

uhhh yah

 

Stefon Diggs caught 8-of-11 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Packers.

He also had a 12-yard run. Diggs was left wide open on his 30-yard touchdown. The Packers didn't have an answer for Diggs or Adam Thielen, who torched the Green Bay secondary for 202 yards. Diggs has touchdowns in consecutive weeks after his monster Week 11. He'll remain a WR2 for Week 13's likely shootout with the Patriots.
 
in 6 team leagues with your grandma
 
also

Adam Thielen caught 8-of-9 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Packers.

Thielen got off to another slow start, with his first catch not coming until halfway through the second quarter. He finished strong -- leading the Vikings in receiving and scoring a touchdown on a broken red-zone play. Thielen is back to his 100-yard standard after a two-game scuttle. He's a top-10 receiver play for Week 13 against the Patriots.
 
awesome insight

It’s another mixed game from Roethlisberger, who now has six interceptions over the three two weeks. The Steelers rolled the Chargers in the first half before blowing their lead in the final two quarters. Roethlisberger rallied for a tying touchdown late, but it wasn’t enough to avoid another loss. The Steelers are now just a half-game ahead of the Ravens in the AFC North. Roethlisberger gets a cupcake matchup with the Raiders in Week 14.

Ridley plays for the packers now. 

 

 

Calvin Ridley (hand, elbow) wasn't listed on the Packers' final injury report for Week 14 against the Falcons.

Ridley was limited at practice this week, but there was never much concern over his status for Sunday. The Alabama product has been as good as advertised, leading all rookies in both receiving yards (647) and touchdown receptions (eight). He'll be in the WR3 mix Sunday at Lambeau.

If you’re still alive, Kirk Cousins is apparently an absolute must-start:

 

Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-33 passes for 208 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' 21-7, Week 14 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night.

Cousins came up with more than a third of his passing yards on the final meaningless drive with the Vikings down 21-0. He also threw a short score to Dalvin Cook to cap it off and avoid the shutout. Cousins had 27 passing yards at halftime. His longest play of the night was a 48-yard shot to Stefon Diggs, but the Vikings later turned it over on downs that drive, failing from the two-yard line in the third quarter. Cousins also lost a fumble on a strip-sack that was returned for a touchdown late in the game. He was under pressure all night and had nowhere to go with the ball. Cousins has been held to 201 and 2018 yards the last two weeks in losses at New England and Seattle. He'll try to rebound next week at home against the Dolphins.

Jamaal Williams rushed 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bears, adding four receptions for 42 additional yards.

Williams was an every-down player after Aaron Jones was lost to a knee injury late in the first quarter. Jones believes he has a sprained MCL, which would be a 2-4 week (read: season-ending) issue. That would make Williams a high-end RB2 for Week 16 against the Jets.
 
Jamaal Williams as a high end RB2 is laughable even without Jones

someone at Rotoworld discovered a new term

 

Jeremy Sprinkle was not targeted in Washington's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

A fifth-round pick in 2017, Sprinkle had a grand total of two career catches and zero 2018 catches heading into Week 15, but injuries to both Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis forced him into a bigger role. He responded with five catches for 41 yards and a touchdown the next two games before cratering along with the rest of the offense in the finale. Despite his late playing time, Sprinkle is not even an exciting hold in Dynasty formats.
 
and in the very next one

 

Jamison Crowder hauled in just 1-of-8 targets for seven yards in Washington's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Seemingly a great fit with Alex Smith, there was some hope Crowder would break out in his fourth season, but he caught just 13 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown in four games before going down with an ankle injury. Crowder was able to show some life after Josh Johnson took over late in the season, catching 11 passes for 211 yards and a 79-yard touchdown in three games, but he cratered along with the rest of the offense in the finale. It was certainly not the season Crowder was looking for heading into free agency. Coming off two disappointing seasons, it is possible Crowder takes a short-term, prove-it deal in an effort to rehab his value, perhaps with Washington.
