Topics I've Started

Joe Flacco

06 October 2017 - 10:56 PM

Baltimore offense in general, and Flacco in particular, have been a dumpster fire. He has never been a weekly QB1, but is off to his worst start in memory. However, he could make a good fill-in this week for those with QB's that are injured or on byes. I'm pretty sure he is available on most wires.

 

He has decent weapons. Maclin, Wallace, and Perriman, although ineffective thus far, are a legitimate corp....and Watson was a full go today and will play. They have a run-game threat now with Collins, as well. Oakland, whom they are playing, is obviously without Carr, so more opportunity should be available for the Ravens offensively. 

 

Dicey, but gonna dust him off and roll him out in one league. Anyone else considering starting him?


Carr Down on field

Back, perhaps.....or neck


Walking off field on own power...thankfully

J.D. McKissic

29 September 2017 - 11:50 PM

Seahawks seem a mess, but for anyone with short benches/injuries/desperate....looks like McKissic could get some burn on passing downs this week if Prosise misses (caught 289 passes while at Arkansas State). Kid looked pretty good in preseason, and Indy has been known to yield some ground. This is what Roto says:

 

UPDATE: Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said McKissic will fill a receiving role out of the backfield in Sunday's game against the Colts in the likely event C.J. Prosise (ankle) doesn't play, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

 

ANALYSIS: The versatile McKissic looked good in preseason, catching passes out of the backfield and while split out wide. Prosise had five targets Sunday against the Titans, totaling seven touches for 74 yards. McKissic might not quite see involvement to that extent, but he's not expected to lose touches on pure passing downs to the likes of Thomas Rawls or Eddie Lacy.


Rather have Bradford or Wentz as Rodgers Insurance?

27 September 2017 - 09:06 PM

Of course, ARod is weekly starter, but I like to have insurance.....and of course bye week fill-in (week 8). Both Bradford and Wentz are out there, but prolly not for long. FWIW, Bradford is at the Browns week 8 and Wentz is home against SF.

 

What say ye?


Ask Kerwynn Williams

13 September 2017 - 09:57 PM

Not much excitement about ole' Kerwynn, but I believe a closer look is warranted. After all, it is not easy to find a "starting" RB, who could very well be so for 2-3 months or longer.

 

His body of work isn't huge, but 5.5 yards/carry on around 100 NFL carries in a tough division ain't chicken-scratch. In fact, it's excellent. No, he hasn't yet proven to be a good receiver (although he did catch 45 passes for 700/5 his senior year at Utah State), but he has shown that he can tote the rock when opportunity presents itself.....and it has now been presented.

 

Seems to me that it is his job to lose. Are we really concerned about Andre "Made of Glass" Ellington, or old man Johnson?

 

Still young, fresh legs, supposedly decent offense, and semi-proven track record. I only owned DJ in one league, but I've grabbed Kerwynn everywhere I can. I think he could surprise.....and the lack of buzz has kept the price down
