I would start Kelley over Gurley. Kelley is the clear no2 behind Eckler and he got 23 carries last week Vs KC. He also gets the goal-line carries. Gurley in comparision, is taken out when in the red z

Yeah I would probably go with that although I think the Falcons will beat the Bears. Gurley might play well. That is a tough one. I am 50/50 on it. @Jared Cisneros might have some input on this as wel

I would make sure first with Mostert before using Wilson. Honestly I have Mostert and it's a mess trying to predict who gets carries.

That is a very good team, you should do well. You will have to pick what weeks you play Wilson and Rodgers, just guess right.

So I drafted today

 

QB - Murray, Big Ben

RB - Henry, Gurley, Connor, Bredia

WR - Adams, Godwin, Chark, Marquise Brown, Ruggs

TE - Engram, Hockenson

D - Ravens

 

Not bad if my back's stay healthy

Your QB tandem is good if Ben can stay healthy. Murray should have a good year statistically having Hopkins. I like your WR's and your D. I had Henry last year, he was a awesome. If he can do for you what he did for me, you will do really well.

Agreed. I just need Gurley and Connor to stay healthy and I have a solid squad imo

Yeah I will be curious to see how much Gurley has left in the tank. If he plays near what he was you will be in real good shape. A change of scenery may be what he needs?

 

If Gurley can give me say 8-11 points a game, I'll take that. I'm not expecting RB1 numbers

@2006Coltsbestever I'm think of benching Gurley for Joshua Kelley vs the Panthers. Eleker will obviously get the majority of snaps, but I think with Herbert starting, Chargers will lean on their run game. Also Gurley has been pretty underwhelming so far and I'm not too big on his matchup vs the bears. What do you think?

I would start Kelley over Gurley. Kelley is the clear no2 behind Eckler and he got 23 carries last week Vs KC. He also gets the goal-line carries. Gurley in comparision, is taken out when in the red zone, and Matt Ryan usually throws for most of the TDs the Falcons get anyway. Gurley is an rb that gets the most useless of carries from a fantasy perspective. Use Kelley and his 20 carries against a terrible Carolina run defense. You'll probably get around 100 yds and a td.

@2006Coltsbestever @Jared CisnerosCisneros 

 

Hey. Need some advice. I'm in the semi finals in my league and I'm considering benching Murray for Herbert. Murray is playing the Rams and Herbert is playing the Patriots. Murray since injuring his shoulder, is not running which is taking a lot of his fantasy appeal away and the Rams have a top 5 defense. Herbert against the Patriots worries me though because Rookies that play BBs defense struggle.

It's a tough matchup either way. I'd go Herbert probably as I agree Murray has struggled a lot lately. With Eckler back, I think the Chargers will move the ball better and it will benefit them Vs the Pats. Plus, Ramsey will be on Hopkins and Gilmore has been pretty ineffective this year so Allen should be fine. Herbert is no ordinary rookie. Even Flacco did ok Vs the Pats, I think Murray is just having trouble right now. Go with Herbert!:thmup:

You don't think BBs record vs Rookie QBs should be factored in?

A little, but not as much with this Pats team. The only constant is Belichick. Brady is gone, the team is barren on defense besides Gilmore, and Herbert is better than most Rookie QBs. I don't think Belichick will be able to just shut him down like most other rookie QBs. He also has weapons on offense to help out and Eckler is back in the run game now. I think Herbert is good for 20 points in fantasy, maybe a bit more.

That is an early playoffs, in week 13.

 

One thing I have learnt is not take the "go with the guns that got you there" advice at every single position. Last year, Carson Wentz was my QB and because I kept winning with Mark Ingram, Chris Carson, Austin Ekeler and Michael Thomas last year, I ignored the productivity I could have gotten more out of the QB position. In the championship game, there were better options with guys that were hot going in, like Ryan Fitzpatrick that I ignored. Fitzpatrick scored twice as much as Carson Wentz and would have won the championship game for me in Week 16, he was going against the Bengals. If you remember, he took down the Patriots on the road in week 17 to give the Chiefs the bye week as a #2 seed and the rest is history.

 

Lo behold, he is going against the Bengals in week 13 this year. You know where I am heading with this - if he is available, and starts over Tua, I would fire him up since he is good for 2-3 good streaky games and he just started with 1 with the Jets. The way his defense is playing, he should get plenty of opportunities vs the Bengals and TDs too. The fact that he got benched for Tua despite playing well will give him an extra chip on his shoulder to prove folks wrong and not turn it over to give an excuse for another benching.

I don't know. That's risky especially if Flores wants to pull him. It's not like Fitz had a great game vs the jets.

Is Kirk Cousins available then? He has thrown for 3 TDs at home the last 2 times he has played at home and gets the Jaguars at home next. I am certain he will deliver.

If that is the case, Herbert is your best bet due to the fact he spreads it around. Belichick takes out the top 2 options and it always ends up the 3rd option or the RB that does damage. Herbert, though he prefers Keenan Allen, is willing to go Henry or his RB for his passing TDs, so Herbert is the better bet than Murray.

I still have this sneaky suspicion Fitz will go off. But I understand your concern, I have that every time his name comes up on a plus matchup while I am in the playoffs.

If this was a regular season game, I'd consider it, but not in the playoffs. Also my opponent has Keenan Allen so I can cap whatever he gets with Herbert

@2006Coltsbestever @Jared CisnerosCisneros @chad72

 

I'm thinking of benching Hopkins for David Johnson who I just picked up on Waivers. Hopkins hasn't really done anything outside the hail mary in weeks and Johnson is playing the colts and with Fuller suspended, one less mouth to feed. Also I might have found a solution to my QB problem as someone dropped Taysom Hill. I put a claim

I wouldn't do this. Hopkins is still a no1 WR and David Johnson probably won't run for much at all against the Colts with Buckner and Autry back. I realize Hopkins is going against Ramsey, but you have to trust him. It's more of Kyler Murray being hurt then Hopkins tbh. Use Hopkins.

Even Metcalf and Lockett had bad games along with Wilson and Murray is still hurt.

I am having Tim Tebow flashbacks with Taysom Hill, to be honest. You have to hope the Saints' defense gives him enough short fields. His passing leaves a lot to be desired. You said you don't want to take the chance on Fitzpatrick, this game is at Atlanta who are stout against the run and playing him twice in 3 weeks. Remember what happened when the Titans played us twice in 3 weeks??? The newness has worn off and there is more film on his tendencies. Don't tell me I did not warn you. :)

Broncos had film and he scored two tds. I don't see where you're getting stout and falcons defense. They have been terrible all year.

@CR91, as usual @Jared Cisnerosbeat me to the punch. Just now seeing this but I agree with Jared I play Hopkins no matter what or who he is playing. One of the reasons why I won my league in 2018 was because of him (I had Luck as well lol) but he hasn't lost a step in 2020 compared to then. 

 

Take away the hail mary and Hopkins has averaged 5 points in standard leagues the last month, he's going up against the top defense in football vs Ramsey, and Murray is still nursing his shoulder. Even Metcalf and Lockett struggled.

I know, but I just don't see it. I just think David Johnson is the better option. The colts have given up 8 tds to RBs in the last 4 games.

Henry is a big part of that because of last week scoring 3, to me he is best RB in football. Buckner is back this week too. Hopkins has had a couple of off weeks so he may have a big Sunday - law of averages. Rams do have a solid Defense so he may not but if it was me I would still play him.

Jones and williams scored. Foreman and Gus Edwards. Not exactly marquee RBs outside Jones.

Broncos didn’t have a QB to put up points whatsoever. Matt Ryan with a healthy Julio Jones and Ridley at home will be a different proposition. Falcons have not given up rushing production as much throughout the year, look it up. You have to beat them through the air and that’s where my doubts are with Taysom Hill.

 

Go ahead and play Taysom Hill and we can touch base after the game.

And the saints defense shut them down just two weeks ago. In fact, Matt Ryan vs the saints the last three games has put up below average stats.

Lol. You're acting like falcons are a good defense. Even if I went with Fitz, there is no guarantee he finishes the game with Tua back from injury.

    • Ballard is a better talent evaluator (at least at most positions). He’s clearly the smarter and better GM in that regard (how much better is subjective but it’s a noticeable amount). I also think he has had far more resources too though.   But I think the argument you are making is how much does that matter without the results? And when does it become about the results?  But if you are looking for an objective comparison between the two...you likely won’t find it on a Colts discussion forum. It’s not a valid comp to make anyways imo...but it doesn’t matter. The way so many people vilify Grigs and deify Ballard now has made it too polarizing of a topic. And for so many...Grigs is now the villain and Ballard the hero no matter what happens.   Everyone is entitled their own opinion though. I just don’t think Ballard is as great as most think and that Grigs was as bad as most think. Or to put it another way...Ballard gets too much credit and Grigs not enough.   And anyways, I choose to look back on the Grigs/Luck era fondly. It was a very exciting time to be a Colts fans...playoff football, active FA periods, SB hype. Luck getting hurt when he did was a very unfortunate turn of events, but % happens.        
    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
