    Why is Carlos Hyde bouncing around so much?

    Shanahan wanted "his guy" in San Fran and Hyde was at the end of his rookie deal. In CLE, we should have seen been able to predict Chubb was going to be a factor when he went early in the second and again when Hyde wasn't showing much efficiency. The Jags were a bad situation, as has been noted above. I like Hyde in KC. We'll have to wait and see if the Chiefs targets an RB on the first day or two of the draft. If they do, I'm probably betting on that rookie. If not, I'll probably acquire a ton of shares in Hyde in the middle to late rounds as opposed to buying Williams in the second.

    We knew his line sucked going into the season. The media loves to play up how much he is responsible for his own sacks, but PFF doesn't seem to agree. However, since either PFF doesn't offer this info to premium subscribers or I can't find it on the site, I'll use this link instead. As of the end of November, PFF assigned responsibility to Watson on only seven of the 37 sacks he had taken (18.9%). Using that same rate over the course of the season, he would have been responsible for 11.5 of his 61 sacks (PFF's number), https://texanswire.usatoday.com/2018/11/28/pro-football-focus-sacks-texans-qb-deshaun-watson/ Even if we bump the final number up to 15, it's ridiculous. LT Julie'n Davenport was raw coming out of Bucknell and should just now be working as a starter, but he's their LT and started a bunch last year. LG Senio Kelemete should be a rotational guy, not a guy starting next to Davenport. RT Kendall Lamm was waived by the Texans last season when their line was even worse after being a college free agent two years before. He's the starting RT. Houston's other huge problem is it got old in the secondary in a hurry. I would have no problem if the Texans do nothing but draft o-linemen and corners this spring, Lamar Miller is replaceable but also good enough to use in tandem with a healthy D'Onta Foreman if the line gets a serious upgrade. Short of this draft offering up a Quenton Nelson at Houston's pick in the first round (highly unlikely, obviously), the Texans need to find Aaron Colvin's long-term sidekick and then throw most of their picks at athletic o-linemen.

    Monday night what do you need?

    Let's make it 19 and everyone can be happy. Against Denver's lackluster TE defense, 5-80-1 is doable.

    If you're asking me if I trust Michel to get 15 carries, sure. Do I think he'll give you October numbers? No. Too many horses in the stable now and the Pats don't care about getting one back his numbers. I feel Coleman is probably the ceiling play and Anderson is the safer play with a decent amount of upside. I had to make this decision earlier in the week on the waiver wire and I went with Cleveland. No Green, Boyd, Eifert or Dalton. I would hope the Browns could keep a second-string offense in check. I would play Miami if I had to, but I don't trust that defense.

    I'd say the odds of Luck sucking (for fantasy purposes) two weeks in a row are slim. I do think Big Ben is a better fantasy play b/c the Saints should be able to stop the run. Would not surprise if Ben went something like 400-2-2. All this assumes the Saints returning home is all their offense needed to get back on track.

    JuJu assured his fantasy owners on Twitter that he'll go tomorrow. I think Anderson makes sense as the WR4.

    No problem. Mike puts us through a three-week customer service and sensitivity training course after the draft each spring

    I can understand your dilemma. Half-point PPR makes it a bit easier for me to go Damien Williams over Cohen as your RB3. I couldn't sit Chubb or David Johnson unless you gave me the answers to the test, and even then I still might question benching them

    Josh never crossed my mind when I saw this question. I like Baldwin the most.

    I'm buying Jeffery as long as Foles is the QB. Coleman probably has the highest ceiling of the bunch above, but I think we almost have to disregard what he did against the Cards and consider the first 14 weeks. He's been a rollercoaster, as I'm sure you well know.

    I think Kittle has done enough to believe he has a five-catch, 80-yard floor against just about any opponent. I think Samuels' floor is around 100 total yards, with about 55-60 coming as a receiver. It would not shock me if he ends up with more catches than Kittle either. Since I'm not loving the odds of Kittle scoring a TD against one of the best defenses in the league, I think Samuels is the play.

    I"ve got Cleveland rolling in my biggest $$ game this week and feel pretty good about it, especially with Denzel Ward expected back. Cincy is down its top two WRs and its QB1. I would hope the Browns can take advantage of that. I'm feeling McGuire just a bit more than Williams. I think Anderson does good but not great this week, and I think he'll need a TD to outscore those guys. Not sure I want to count on a TD from a Jet WR this year.

    I think I'm in agreement with you. Xavier Rhodes hasn't been all-world this season by any stretch, but the Vikings can always give him safety help considering the lack of other options Detroit has now. No way do I want to count on Adams this week. Not sure he gets to 15 carries and we don't know how much Smallwood will steal from him on early downs. And you'd have to think Sproles will see the majority of work on passing downs. AND there's the matchup.
