    Chargers at Steelers: In-Game Discussion

    No Bell cannot play this season. If its a high ankle sprain then it could be as short as 1-2 weeks (seems optimistic) or as long as 7 weeks.
  2. 14 team. Keeper league. 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX, 1 DEF My team: QB - Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins WR - Josh Gordon, Corey Davis, Will Fuller, Alshon Jeffery RB - James Conner, Jay Ajayi, Royce Freeman, Kenyan Drake, Dion Lewis TE - Kyle Rudolph DEF - Titans TRADE (FLEX player) --- My Kenyan Drake for his Mike Williams Drake has been awful. The O-Line is missing its LG and C for season. Gase will change things up on offense...but when? And will he continue to split with Gore as hes been doing? Mike Williams has been what I thought he'd be. He could end up being a #2 indefinitely in a solid air attack for years. I feel like this trade is a no brainer as far as the future is concerned (Mike Williams went undrafted in my league, so if he broke out and I kept him for next year he'd be $1...I spent $25 on Drake this season in the draft. But as for THIS season...i'd hate to see Drake turn it around and then I suffer a loss (e.g. Conner is benched for rest of season for Le'veon Bell and then I'm hurting in depth rest of year.) .... Thoughts?
  3. PICK 1: Mahomes - faces Jags DEF...but ballsy to sit the best QB in NFL this year or Cousins? - missing cook, will throw a lot. question is - does the O-Line hold up? PICK 2: Corey Davis, - just broke out last week (finally) Alshon Jeffery, - comes back and scores and 100 yards in first game, torched them for 80 yards and 2 TD's last year in playoffs Will Fuller, - this dude just scores TDs...insane, but his hamstring has been an issue PICK 2: Jay Ajayi, - face 6.4 defenders in box per game ( best in NFL ) might try to control possession in this game against Vikes Dion Lewis - lots of potential for pass targets in this game Royce Freeman - TD in last 3 games, but no value if he doesn't score...facing decent jets rush D

    Mahomes or Cousins?

    I own both players. I'm starting Cousins for same reasons mentioned above. Please tell us who you choose before kickoff.
  5. So we have 5 of us considering or actually BENCHING MAHOMES, the #1 QB in fantasy....for: Cam Big Ben Wilson Brees and now me - Cousins I personally wouldn't sit Mahomes for Ben or Wilson... But Cam and Brees are reasonable...and I believe Cousins is reasonable. Does anyone disagree with benching Mahomes for Cousins this week?

    Kenyan Drake

    R E L A X....relax boys. I warned about this in the original Drake thread. I said Gase was gonna be running HIS offense finally. That meant HURRY UP and LOTS of passing. He finally has HIS guys (intellectually capable, fast, and selfless.) But are we gonna play like this the entire season? Is it possible we've been holding back a lot of plays? Is it possible that its because we intend on shredding the Patriots this week like we did on the ground last year? Calling it now: Drake gets a respectable 120 combined yards and a TD this week in NE.

    Who do I start at FLEX? (tough one) **WHIR**

    ESPN rankings just boosted Dion Lewis over 2 full points in the last 24 hours?? He was around 7.8 and now hes 9.8!!!! A 2 point swing the day before the game is HUGE. What could be the reason!? Does anyone know?? I can't find anything significant in the news.

    D. Lewis or R. Freeman Rest of Way?

    Who would you be trading for them? I was very high on Royce until this unknown took 50% and went off. I was not high on Dion Lewis at all. But after week 1 things are up in the air. Lets see how this week plays out and then make your decision based on that. My gut would be Royce. I don't trust TEN's lack of tackles, QB uncertainty, and their TE going down. None of those are good things.

    Who do I start at FLEX? (tough one) **WHIR**

    This is really a tough one guys. I mean....3 legitimate RB's (albeit might share carries a bit or have injuries to their lines, but still legit...) or a potential big play threat in Fuller...he could have 100 yards and a TD easssyyyy...but he could also get limited targets and not take advantage whereas a RB will get likely 15 opportunities at least to break one. If you wouldn't mind elaborating on why you choose a player and comment with your recommendation I'd appreciate it!!
  10. **UPDATED post-Josh Gordon news: My current lineup: QB - Patrick Mahomes RB 1 - James Conner RB 2 - Jay Ajayi WR 1 - Will Fuller V WR 2 - Corey Davis TE - Kyle Rudolph FLEX - ??? DEF - Broncos Options: RB Royce Freeman .vs. OAK Kenyan Drake @ NYJ Dion Lewis .vs. HOU * Royce Freeman lost me my game last week after what happened with Lindsey. * Kenyan Drake just lost his starting LG for the season and the Jets game last week might not have been a fluke. * Dion Lewis did great last week, but his starting Tackles are out this week, and who knows what is going on at QB? Thanks!!! Please link me to your thread!

    Was offered Michael Thomas for Mahomes--yes or no?

    Very nice. I'm also using Cousins/Mahomes. Had I started Mahomes last week I'd have won my game... So who are you starting this week? Cousins or Mahomes?

    With the rain and wind in Cleveland...

    Well because of Alshon Jeffery being injured and Fuller questionable against Pats...I'm basically stuck with Josh Gordon in my lineup. But as for James Conner....I also have Kenyan Drake and Dion Lewis (.vs. each others DEF). I know Miami's DEF is weak .vs. RB's but I feel like the Steelers might heavily rely on Conner with this weather.... Should I roll with James?

    Another Kenyan drake post

    Sure. Here is my lineup this week. 14 team. Standard. 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 FLEX, 1 TE, 1 DEF. *Bold = I'm starting in my lineup this week. Keep in mind this is an Auction draft. People overbid on RB's ($70-80 out of their $200 budget for the top-10 backs) So I sit back an let everyone overbid and then swooped up a bunch of RB2's that I can interchange based on matchups. We have 1 flex...so I figure I'll probably always start 3 RB's. Thats why I can justify being weak at WR...and if Gordon indeed plays to his potential I got a WR1 for half the price ($30 opposed to 60 for top10 WR's) QB - Kirk Cousins, Patrick Mahomes RB - Royce Freeman, James Conner, Kenyan Drake, Jay Ajayi, Dion Lewis, C.J. Anderson, WR - Josh Gordon, Corey Davis, Will Fuller V, Alshon Jeffery TE - Kyle Rudolph DEF - Broncos Kickoff is in 1 hour 1/2...does anyone suggest I start Drake or Lewis over Conner? If Fuller plays should I go with him over Gordon? The weather in the CLE/PIT game is going to be really bad.
  14. 14 team league / Standard QB - pick 1 ESPN PROJECTION: Kirk Cousins .vs. SF 18 Patrick Mahomes @ SD 16.7 RB - pick 2 Royce Freeman .vs. SEA 11 Kenyan Drake .vs. TEN 9.5 James Conner @ CLE 11.1 Dion Lewis @ MIA 7.7 WR - pick 2 Josh Gordon .vs. PIT 7.8 Will Fuller V @ NE 7.6 Corey Davis @ MIA 7.7 DEF - pick 1 Broncos .vs. SEA 6.3 Lions .vs. NYJ 7.4 I'd love to hear your thoughts. Right now this is my plan, but I'd love to hear why you think I should substitute another in their place? QB - Cousins RB - Freeman, Conner WR - Gordon, Fuller DEF - Broncos ***Leave me a link for your question and I'll give you my advice.
  15. Here is my situation. I have Josh Gordon, Corey Davis, Will Fuller V, and Alshon Jeffery as my WR's in a 14 team league. Jeffery is out and Fuller is definitely going to be 1 of my 2 WR's I start this week. So the choice is between Davis and Gordon. Do I go with Gordon? I think I do...i believe based on Hue's latest statements and nothing but positive reports on his health and condition...the Browns are just trying to keep their Ace up their sleeve against the Steelers. I read that Gordon is expected to get more than the 8 looks he averaged last year. I think the hamstring thing was overblown. They're playing their hated nemesis the Steelers...why would they show their cards if they don't have to? Are you going with Gordon? Am I making the right choice with going with Gordon/Fuller? Or should I substitute Corey Davis?
