    Jacob Hollister

    Scroll to the bottom of my article that just hit the site today. I'd say he's a good bet. https://fftoday.com/articles/orth/19_aob_160_weekly_ranks.html And if you don't want to take my word for it: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/11/14/pete-carroll-jacob-hollisters-emergence-for-seahawks-is-not-a-fluke/

    The Mutation of RoJo into DJ is almost complete.

    Yet, amazingly, we can't get Arians/Leftwich to stop giving Peyton Barber meaningful touches.

    UPDATE: Kenyan Drake Situation - Traded to Arizona

    If you're like me, you're probably wondering why Drake was not given much of a chance to be featured in Miami by multiple coaching staffs. This article might help answer those questions: https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/barry-jackson/article236890963.html

    Darrel Williams?

    Now I see why you are a legend around these parts Do me a favor and break down this backfield for the rest of the season so I can save myself some time each week when I'm putting together my article. I'm not even going to continue this conversation after this look-at-me reply. There is obviously nothing that someone who makes a living in this industry can teach you. Congratulations. Keep reading those depth charts. Just like the internet, they are always 100 percent correct. I called out your "oversight" with Darrel being used basically only in garbage time b/c you obviously didn't watch the game or bother to look up the play-by-play to make sure your wisdom actually checked out. My job here is done.

    Darrel Williams?

    We've known Darrel over Darwin was the pecking order? I beg to differ all or even most of us knew that. How many leagues are you in where Darwin is available and Darrel isn't? I'm in at least 10 expert or high-stakes leagues; I think I scooped up Darrel in six or seven of them about 15-20 minutes before kickoff Sunday morning. Darwin has been stashed in all of my leagues since the draft. I think that's probably a good representation of most leagues. I think Shady looks better than Damien, I don't think that's in question; I just assumed Andy Reid might have a bit more loyalty to the guy he and the front office gave an extension to this spring. It wouldn't surprise me if Shady steals more work moving forward, but I don't think it's a given either. Shady has already hurt his ankle in consecutive weeks to boot. Either Darrell or Darwin has a chance to be a league-winning type of player in this offense, particularly if McCoy can't stay healthy.

    Darrel Williams?

    This isn't entirely true since McCoy had seven touches to Williams' four at halftime. As far as I can tell, Williams and McCoy each had four touches on the first two drives of the second half ... with the game still somewhat in doubt. Is Darrel going to overtake Damien or McCoy? I highly doubt it. Is he ahead of Darwin on the depth chart? I'm not sure why, but it looks that way.

    Instant Fantasy Analysis - TE T.J. Hockenson, Lions

    Depending on what Big Board I'm using, Waller is either my TE8 or TE9.

    Sleeper defenses this year

    My favorite one so far is Denver. I do like most of your other choices though.

    Darwin Thompson, RB Chiefs

    I want to be clear that I think Damien Williams is a more than capable back. He made more plays in December and January than I thought he could and showed more quickness when he got his chance than I thought he had. With that said, I don't think he has Thompson's ability to break tackles and play through contact. Those backs tend to find their way into a starting role sooner than later.

    FFToday Staff League Draft

    I probably should be arrested anyway I'm not exactly sure I want to get into the business of handcuffing my flex, although I recognize the kind of huge upside Penny has. Had he lasted another round (and got to me with my eighth pick), I probably would've taken him. As it was, it was more important to me at the time to get my every-week starters at WR3 and TE1.

    Darwin Thompson, RB Chiefs

    I think it's only a matter of time before he is the starter. My opinion of him changed shortly after the draft and I am getting him in as many teams as possible. I think the Chiefs will give Wiliams the first four weeks to lead the backfield, but I agree he's probably the clear starter in 2019 - at the latest.
