I'm sorry, what comments to the media? When has Garrett said anything about who would be the starter in the event the suspension holds up? 

 

Feel free to sift through this thread or use google. The coaches have said Alf is suiting up because they felt he beat out DMC in camp/preseason.

 

My point is that the coaches' opinion really matters much more than anyone's on this board, including myself. And the coaches' opinion on DMC vs. Alf seems pretty clear.

???

This is the quote you are referring to back at the beginning of the season?

Quote

"We just felt like as we went through training camp and the preseason that Alfred deserved this opportunity first," Garrett said, via The Dallas Morning News. "That's no slight on Darren McFadden. We have a tremendous amount of confidence in him. But we just felt like if we're going to have three running backs up, we wanted Alfred Morris to be one of them.

That is almost meaningless.

Holy Crap...yahoo jumping the gun, just marked him as suspended.

Because technically he is.  But can be overturned still, but unlikely.

he is suspended. Until a judge in new york grants an injunction, his suspension is in effect. And a judge in new york will most likely deny the injunction.

I believe that DMC would be plugged into Elliot's role with Morris backing him up. But I could see it being a timeshare/ hot hand approach as well. Also possible that Elliott avoids suspension this season altogether. O-line hasn't been as dominant as in previous seasons, so I am avoiding the whole mess.

The quote literally says they wanted Morris active over McFadden - how delusional to you have to be?

Yeah honestly I would bet RBBC but I think either guy is worth an add... like drop a kicker or someone for them.

No it doesn't. He said they were only going to have three active RBs and they felt Morris was the better guy to have in that situation. If Zeke is out that changes everything.

 

E: We literally just went through a similar situation with Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones. Just because he's not active or playing doesn't mean anything if the guy playing like 90% of the snaps is out.

Ahahahahahahhaahhahaha. 

 

Based on the 125 pages of garbage, all the Zeke owners who said they knew he'd never get suspended have to now eat crow. Best part of fantasy sometimes.

I'm just going to leave the Zeke, Alf, DMC threads for several days.

There are going to be 100 posts an hour all saying why Alf or DMC is going to be the main back.  

We are talking in circles and won't know anything until they hit the field in week 7.

 

I'm not going to worry about who to play between Alf or DMC, because I"m just going to start Doug Martin.

RB depth helps (traded Zeke last week too...)

 

Worst part of fantasy: people seeking enjoyment from other’s misfortune over the internet

You’re right. Do you know it was the opposite prior to the court’s ruling today?
