    Your team is out -- which team are you rooting for?

    Colts: I'm just a huge fan of Luck and he helped me win two fantasy titles this season. So many doubters this year. I remember after Week 3 he was getting dropped like crazy and everyone claimed he had a noodle arm and his career would never be the same. Then he posted nearly 500 yards the following week and went on an insane run. Comeback player of the year for sure. Love his attitude, his style and his neckbeard. Other than Luck, I like the makeup of this team and coaching staff and would love to see them go on a run. Chiefs: Feel bad for the fans of KC and Andy Reid and if they get past the Colts I'll be pulling for them. They are fun to watch. Chargers: Rivers has had a stellar career and deserves a SB. Eagles: Not really pulling for them as they already had their moment last year but what a story (and controversy) it would be if Foles goes on yet another magical run.

    Antonio Brown requests trade

    I just want to come in here to say how much I respect Nuk Hopkins. He is every bit as good (if not better) than Brown or OBJ and yet you never hear a peep from him. Brown and Beckham have played with HOF level QB's their entire careers while Hopkins has played with Watson for a little over a full season, and the likes of Brock Osweiler, Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, etc. He routinely makes incredible catches yet because he didn't make thee catch on SNF or has bleach blonde hair or makes outrageous demands or stream everything on Facebook live he's nowhere near as famous or valued. I would love to see the level of temper tantrums on the sidelines, interviews and social media posts if guys like Brown and Beckham had to deal with what Hopkins has had to deal with in his career. Brown feels underappreciated?! I can only imagine what Hopkins feels like. Also shot out to fellow hard nosed stand out WRs like Julio Jones, AJ Green and Larry Fitzgerald who let their play do the talking. Part of me really wants guys like Brown and Beckham traded to Jacksonville to see how good they really have it.

    John Kelly

    It has to be the pass protection angle which is what rookie RB's struggle with most when entering the league. Why else would it be possible for a player McVay hand picked to draft, shined in the preseason, and has been with the team all year get jumped on the depth chart by a plodding veteran RB who has already been cut by two teams this season and was just signed days ago? I will wait until Sunday and see if Schefter or a Rams beat reporter comes out with anything more definitive. As juicy as this match up may be, this is Week 16 not Week 6 so I just can't see how anyone can risk playing such an unknown in Kelly with everything that's come out in the last 24 hours. At this point, unless something changes I'm either going to play Gurley or stay far away from the unknowns here and play a suddenly and surprisingly decent Jordan Howard.

    John Kelly

    As a Todd Gurley owner with Kelly handcuffed what can we realistically expect from Kelly? Let's assume the following... -McVay decides to rest Gurley and makes him inactive. -Backup Justin Davis (hurt last game) is not able to play and also inactive. -John Kelly and CJ Anderson are both active but CJA was only signed a few days ago. How many snaps could he possibly see? Where would Kelly realistically be ranked in this possible scenario? I'd have to assume given the matchup and the offense he's in he's a top 25 option at RB. Would he be an immediate start over guys like Ware, Jamaal and Damien Williams, Jordan Howard, etc who are all probably around that range? Kelly had an outstanding preseason albeit against second and third stringers.

    So...What Kicker You Rolling With In The Playoffs?

    Rolling out Badgley one more time. I think with Gordon back for the Chargers and against a tough Ravens D he should get plenty of opportunities unlike last week.

    Ware or Williams

    Limited practice only and hamstrings can be tricky but practicing on a Wednesday is a positive (or negative) sign towards playing.

    Truth and Lies - Melvin Gordon

    Is Ekeler ready to go this week or is he still in concussion protocol? If Ekeler, Jackson and Gordon are all active I could see MGIII getting less than his usual workhorse role. The most worrying thing is the matchup vs the Ravens, everything else is secondary. I'd think someone's team would have to be loaded to consider benching Gordon this week.

    Ware or Williams

    Ware is practicing today so he's at least looking like he's on track to play.

    Jaylen Samuels a rb/te on yahoo....TE?

    Looking more likely that Conner will miss this week. While the Saints have the top run D, Samuels should be heavily involved as the main RB and was out there on a lot of 5 WR sets.

    The Official Week 15 FU Thread

    Very strange week in fantasy football. My semifinal match up is a back and forth battle coming down to MNF with projected scores of low 130's to high 120's. The other semifinal game is projected high 60's to low 70's with only one player left for each team. Understandably so, the loser of my match up will feel very crappy after tonight. QB: Luck RB: Barkley RB: L. Miller WR: Allen WR: Hill WR: Thielen TE: Ertz Flex: Aaron Jones K: Maher or Rosas DST: LA Rams That lineup would've scared even the most optimistic person in the world yet put up a complete dud this week.

    Jaylen Samuels a rb/te on yahoo....TE?

    Agreed, Steelers usually operate with one workhorse but given the lack of TE options on the WW in a 14 team league at this time of year, I'd still feel more comfortable trotting out Samuels over the likes of Chris Herndon, Matt LaCosse, Gerald Everett, etc. If I'm lucky enough to make it to the championship next week, it's very possible I would start both Conner and Samuels and hope for a shootout with the Saints.

    Jaylen Samuels a rb/te on yahoo....TE?

    That's true although even if Samuels gets a handful of touches behind Conner he's still more valuable than a lot of TE's out there. Given his performance yesterday and Conner coming off injury, I would suspect Samuels to get some work.

    Gurley owners

    If I'm taking a shot on either it's John Kelly because of how well he played in the preseason but he has also been inactive every single week. Unfortunately, we can't wait until the actives/inactives list comes out to see who McVay activates since they play on Sunday night so I'll take a stab at the upside in Kelly.

    Any sneaky WR start in the playoffs?

    Zay Jones is on a tear two of the last three weeks although the one week in between he put up a goose egg vs the Jaguars. There's obviously a risk playing him but he presents tremendous upside with Allen back at QB and two WR's recently released.

    Jaylen Samuels a rb/te on yahoo....TE?

    In my original post I listed the reasons why he was listed with the RB/TE designation on Yahoo. He played all over the field at NC State becoming their all time receptions leader and worked out at the NFL Combine with the TE's. I'm not stating that this is right or wrong to be listed that way, just providing background why a RB would have TE designation. Samuels is truly a rare case. For comparison, Dan Arnold of the Saints has a WR/TE designation on Yahoo this year. He was a college WR and the Saints converted him to a TE. Now let's say with the rash of injuries the Saints have had at WR, they moved Arnold back to WR. He would see a bump in value solely because of his TE eligibility.
