Now Miami CB Bryon Jones out. If there was any time for this guy to shine it's this week.

I'm all for it either way, but I never really understood the train of thought here. A slotted WR that gets RB snaps is pretty much always more valuable than a slotted RB who gets WR snaps with few exceptions (Ekeler). You're two starting RB slots should be filled with actual RBs getting the majority of backfield touches, even for PPR. A player like Shenault is an ideal flex and hopefully works himself up to a WR2.

In one of the leagues in which I own him, I am very thin at RB. If he miraculously winds up with dual eligibility, I'd be more comfortable throwing him into a RB slot than some trash off the end of my bench for a bye week or injury fill-in. It's full PPR, so he also carries a relatively solid floor compared to a low-end RB. Also, it ultimately just gives owners more flexibility with their lineups, which is always a good thing. 

Either way, I'm not loosing any sleep waiting for it to happen since it's still largely an unlikely proposition at this point.

injuries could allow for a big week for him. If it doesn't happen this week it's hard to see him as more than a flex/wr3 at best ros

Might throw him in over fuller at this point, seems like hes got a solid enough floor but we havent seen his ceiling. Hard to say for sure though, hes such an unknown a 1 reception, 2 rush attempt type game doesnt feel out of the range of opportunities. Not sure here

He feels a bit like a solid-floor (due to the rushing), low-ceiling (due to the relatively limited touches, though hopefully this trends up over time) player at the moment, but I don’t think I’d feel comfortable throwing him in yet unless Chark actually sits.

As a point of reference, I’d consider starting him if Chark sits this week over DJ and Gibson.

I just did this in my league. Fuller to the bench..Shenault to start.

Definitely worth a start if Chark is out

 

Actually, I think he's worth a start even if (and maybe even a little more so) Chark is out. Reason being, Chark should get Howard in coverage. 

I'm flexing Laviska with cautious optimism.

Im flexing him out of desperation. Wouldn't shock me if he has a coming out party tonight vs a bad defense. Also think he has a pretty safe floor. Im also cautiously optimistic.

I too am starting due to lack of better options. But I put my money down on him scoring the game’s first TD at 17-1, so let’s go!!!

Don't forget if you start him tonight, put him in your WR spot and not in your flex.  Need to keep that flex spot available in case of an unexpected injury between now and Sunday.
