Wow! Interesting. Good job jumping on that!

 

Ravens have both Hollywood Brown and Miles Boykin on Covid list.

 

In another league, I am glad I have Mark Andrews then, who once was on the Covid list along with Lamar, lol. :)

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.

He seems to be their goal line back more so than Dobbins for the most part. He is very efficient with his carries too, you should do good there. Michael Thomas may not be a good play this week, IMO, mainly because of Taysom Hill's accuracy against a good secondary that plays tight coverage. Hopefully he can get a TD to make up for the lack of yards. 

 

The Saints game plan will be to keep Mahomes on the sidelines with their run game primarily, IMO.

 

Brees was activated to return from IR. Not sure now.

Yeah, like Tim Patrick got a couple of TDs vs Chiefs, like I said before, the red zone is where you will earn your points with Michael Thomas, IMO and not between the 20s.

Heres the problem. One WR gets points and the other doesn't. Samuel had a good day Moore had a bad day. Patrick good Juedy bad. Evans good, Godwin bad

Isn't that the weekly dilemma in fantasy? :) 

 

You have to go with your gut and let it play out.

Ack, this makes things even tougher.  I'm in the semi final of a 14 man league.  I picked Trubisky up last week and he did fantastic.

 

I have Ridley, Aiyuk, Kamara, Aaron Jones, Mike Davis, Tonyan, Koo and the Niners D.  QB I currently have Hurts in, but also have Trubisky still and Brees on IR.

I’m going Gus Edwards based on game script working in Ravens favor by 3rd quarter.

 

Texans-Colts, Colts could get ahead and pin their ears and Watson doesn’t check down much to RBs.

I don't know. Johnson will atleast get 10-15 touches. Gus edwards might not even get 10. Also Buckner might not play and even if he does, he won't be 100 percent with his ankle.

Gus with 10 touches is more efficient per touch than DJ with 15, IMO. Mark Ingram has not been a factor lately, so it’s Gus and Dobbins mainly. When the game script is in Ravens favor, Lamar runs less.

Duke johnson is supposed to miss the game though which means more throws to David Johnson. I don't know. For all I know, Ravens decide to give Ingram 10 touches. Not to mention, Jackson will always be the first option in the run game.

1 option is definitely better than 2 or 3 options if Duke were to miss. In that case go with DJ.

So it's the final week of the championship. I'm currently ahead by 27. I need to choose two out of these three backs. I'm working under the impression Gaskin will not play.

 

Fournette vs the Lions

 

Salon Ahmed vs the Raiders

 

David Johnson vs the Bengals

David Johnson and Salvon Ahmed, IMO. 

 

Do you guys do a best of 3 weeks or something like that?

But the lions have the worst run defense.No. It's a two week playoff match where the total of the two weeks wins. We void week 17 to avoid teams resting key players

Lions have been bad on all fronts like Tannehill showed last week, so have the Raiders, giving up easy TDs for RBs (Lions given up 3 TDs over last 3 games, Raiders 4).

 

Just that the Bucs have far more mouths to feed but the Dolphins - DaVante Parker might miss the game, Gesicki might miss the game, and if both of those happen, more opportunities for the RBs, IMO.

I was leading more towards Fournette and Ahmed. I think the touches and the matchup are better. Of course, all this means nothing if Gaskins plays. My only concern playing Ahmed is how well the raiders kept Ekcler in check

Gaskin is activated so my decision becomes easy.

2 things there. Ever since Ekeler came back, Herbert was asked to dink and dunk for a lower YPA. It benefited Ekeler owners like me in fantasy but hurt Herbert owners because he had been free lancing more, moving out of the pocket more for a higher depth of YPA prior to the Patriots game. This Thursday night, they went back to the old Herbert ways where Ekeler was not the first or second read and completed passes much farther down the field. The goal line opportunities - they used Ballage for 1 and Herbert took the other rushing TD, thus evaporating Ekeler's TD chances. That is what actually happened.

 

They sold out to the run so badly (probably because Gruden fired the previous DC for that) that WRs were running open against the Raiders but at the goal line, they still couldn't come up with the stops even when it was obvious the Chargers were going to run it. Problem was, Ekeler was not the goal line back in that game.  I watched the game agonizingly as those happened. Between Ekeler, Drake and Mike Davis in another league, I did not get a single TD. Won't be the case with Gaskin, IMO.

Regardless, it's a moot point. Gaskin is already owned so it's Fournette and Johnson which is fine because their matchups are really good.

    • 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).
