He is only getting 12 carries a game and has not scored in 4 weeks. Any word on his injuries?

He's definitely not a 'must start', that's for sure. Play the matchups with him like most other RBs. Take a look at his season from two years ago, his 'blow up year'. Mediocre the second half.

Wow, just another story about a first round fantasy pick gone bad. It seems to happen every year that 3-4 guys drafted high slowly turn to dust week after week. And it's always one of 2 answers that go back and forth. Always play your studs or play the match-ups based on who you have.  

 

Noone every wants to sell low because you get garbage back for them.

I look at it this way.

Play the studs always early.

This time of the season, it's the best matchups.

One must be able to adjust on how we value the studs as the season goes forward.

I tried for Freeman. Owner countered Henry & Murray for TY. If they were 1 player I'd do it. Had to pass.

I have Freeman and Coleman both. I've played both (Coleman @FLEX) a lot, but now I'm contemplating if that's wise atm; I'll have to sit DJAX for one of them @ FLEX if I do.

Ugh.

I feel Freeman has been limited by the coaches who fear further damage to his knee (& other ailments) So as he gets healthier (not a given) the carries and targets will go up. START HIM!!!  Also, if you can spare a WR got get a RB who catches passes. Say, a RB & WR for a high targeted RB  good luck


The Outlaws (5-6) one game out

PPR for RB/TE only

 

QB - Brees, Bortles

RB - Fournette, DMurray, Martin, AP, McKinnon

WR - MThomas, Evans, Diggs, MBryant, R. Matthews

TE - Gronk

PK - Tucker

DEE - Steelers, Panthers

I've rolled Freeman and Coleman all season too.  Has paid off pretty well.  I expect falcons to get right at home tomorrow esp in the run game.

Devonta got concussed in the game today.  

 

He's been durable, but not productive as of late.    Might be Coleman's chance to put in some work.
