    Team defenses

    Washington - lots of talent up front that should get plenty of pressure and result in sacks and turnovers. Their offense shouldn't force other teams into shootouts, which will keep yardage and points against down. Niners- Lots of talent on a run first team. They play in the toughest division in football, so that drops them down a bit. Colts - Its hard for defenses to repeat performances, but they'll have a shot playin in the AFC South on a run first team. Chargers - Derwin James missed all of last year, when he's on the field this is a different team with plenty of talent. Their new coach also has a defensive background, which will likely result in a more defensive friendly game script. They're ADP is almost free, and they open at Washington, so not a terrible week one matchup that should let you see what you have in them.

    My great state of Arizona has finally legalized gambling and DFS. Just wanted to see if any of you could give me some advise on general DFS information. (i.e. which site I should use, what tournaments are worth while, lineup construction strategies etc.)

    Axe Elf Guides Your Draft

    What scoring system are you using for this? CMC seems like the #1 pick in most ppr formats, while arguments for Henry and others get a boost in standard scoring.

    Rostering 2 qbs post- bye week

    Depends on the league. Some leagues horde QBs, so if I have a questionable starter I'll keep a second on hand. I don't like to but it all depends on my team and league. I'd rather keep two decent QBs than a useless WR 5.

    Josh Gordon (knee) placed on IR

    May as well have been out since week 1

    2019 rookie RB

    Long term I like Singletary. He looks to have the talent, the city he plays in pretty much has to be a running team because of the weather in winter, and Gore is the guy he is currently splitting carries with. The arrow is pointing up for his future. Sanders and Montgomery are up in the air right now and I think Jacobs has already established that hes going to be around for a little while

    L Murray top 12 rb this week?

    He would need to be desperate to win this week to pull the trigger on that deal, unless he's has another viable option at TE

    L Murray top 12 rb this week?

    Murray or Breida this week at flex?

    Darnold ROS

    I don't see him being top 5, but with their schedule, he's good enough to be and make the other Jets offense fantasy relevant again.

    Josh Gordon Buy Low?

    As someone who has Gordon, I'd sell him for a PB & J and I'm allergic to peanuts.

    Steelers at Chargers: In-Game Discussion

    How is Rivers not in the conversation for most overrated QB? Hasn't won anything, and has the throwing motion of uncle Rico

    Steelers at Chargers: In-Game Discussion

    Run it between the tackles, throw it to the flats. The Steelers game plan is incredibly complicated, its no wonder the chargers can't stop it

    Giants at Patriots: In-Game Discussion

    The difference between a healthy Gordon and an injured Gordon is really minor.
  16. 40 yard time pro day /combine Coleman 4.39 Breida 4.38 Best MPH Coleman - 22.25, 4 years ago Breida - 22.3 4 days ago You said Coleman is faster than Breida. You are wrong. Breida is faster than Coleman.
  17. 22.25 mph is slower than Breida's 22.3 mph. Also, 2015 is 4 years and few injuries ago.. Coleman is fast Breida is faster. Until Coleman tops 22.3, you can't say he's faster than Breida.
  18. I didn't realize Breida was that fast until Monday. I see both backs having the chance to be mid-low RB 2's or high flex plays most weeks. I understand why people are hesitant to like a RBBC with Breida and Coleman, but not all RBBC systems are created equal. Shanahan systems seem to always produce quality RB numbers for multiple backs. One of the primary reasons we know who Tevin Coleman is, is because he started off in this same system in ATL. I think Coleman and Breida are fine talent wise, but the systems is what I buy.
  19. Breida was just clocked at over 22mph. The fastest time by any NFL player in the past two years. It's not a knock on Coleman, it's just a fact about Breida
  20. I agree with everything but the explosive part. Did you see the opening play Monday? I don't think Coleman has that kind of speed.

    Weather on TNF

    It's hard to imagine him doing any worse in the rain than he's done is good weather this year. Nugent is hitting the bench though.
  22. The idea that this is a 3 or 4 back committee when Breida and Coleman are healthy is wrong. Breida maintains the same role regardless of Coleman's health. When Coleman went down they used Mostert and Wilson to fill his void. Historically this is a two back committee scheme and Monday showed that seems to be the plan in place. Wilson was inactive. Mostert had 7 carries, including the last 4 of the game in mop up duty. This is a two headed committee with a third sprinkled in rarely or to fill in for Coleman. So far this committee has produced 3 top 13 RBs in week 2, two top 24 in week 3, their bye in week 4 and two top 12 backs in week 5. Week 1 was the only bad week for this RBBC.
  23. Here's my take. Shanahan runs the best RBBC for fantasy purposes. This is the same system that year after year let both Freeman and Coleman be start worthy backs in Atlanta. I expect Coleman to score more TDs and handle a few more touches (20ish), so he's the 1A and firmly in the RB2 conversation going forward. Breida will have a few less touches (15ish), and likely won't see a ton of carries inside the 5, but has the big play ability and speed that was evident on Monday night. He's more of a low end RB2 high end flex in 12 team leagues. Mostert is a cheap grab right now if you have space. I don't think he gets more than a few touches every game, but Coleman and Breida both have injury histories and this will always be a RBBC that can produce startable assets.

    Cleveland Clowns

    I'm not sure clown faces are that much of a downgrade from the dog masks they put on willingly.

    Evan Engram: Sprained MCL

    Who has more TD's this week, the Giants or the NE defense?
