3 receptions for 3 TDs is pretty efficient

Somebody help me out. I have to drop one of these players on my bench to fill my kicker position this week. I'm thinking either Sony Michel or Rashaad Penny. Both are rookies with potential to win starting jobs. Michel didn't play in week 1 due to minor injury, and according to Coach Carroll Rashaad Penny hasn't proven he can be the Seahawks workhorse and isn't there primary RB for the time being. I just added Yeldon today and want to keep him, so I'm most likely looking at dropping Penny or Michel from this list. Leaning towards dropping Penny by maybe just a hair. This is my bench:

Rashaad Penny
Sony Michel
TJ Yeldon
Mark Ingram
George Kittle
Geronimo Allison

Who should I drop, or should I try to win without a kicker and decide after Sunday?

I guess that's finally the end of the Josh Gordon saga. He must have failed another drug test, as they didn't even try to con a 7th round draft pick out of someone.

^^i don't think it was a drug issue this time. Probably just the straw that broke the camel's back. Like Shad Thornton and the moped incident.

Another failed drug test would have been made known by the NFL, not by the owner of the browns writing a breakup letter.

speaking of having Rodgers and Mahomes, what should I do in a 1 QB league? Will probably hang tight for at least a week or two, but figure I could probably trade one of them and improve my team.

^^ why are you flexing Conner
who are your other two RBs?

^bad trade

you're getting lockett who is the only good deal there, cohen getting out worked by Jordan and it isn't even close. Freeman won't see the snap count anytime soon he's behind Lindsay

Also Hyde is getting lots of work, albeit a bad offense/team.

Came back from 30+ down with Big Ben to win by .06 points. Thankfully his last 3 knees to end the game were for -3 yards instead of -4.

Someone wants me to give them Leonard Fornette for James Conner...Fournette is out the next two weeks but when he comes back will be the better option right? I'm thinking I should say no.

might have worked today, but Bell will be back in a few weeks and Fournette is a better player to have on your team for the remainder of the season

Bell may not be with the Steelers when he comes back, and there's no telling when Fournette may touch the field again. I wouldn't make the trade straight up, but I would counter with a second piece and be talking to the Bell owner about trading for Bell too. You could potentially end up with 2 RB1s if Bell gets traded.

Yes. KC rolled the Pats to open last season, and Alex Smith had 4 TD's, Mahomes is better. Atlanta's Defense is horrendous especially the secondary but I still don't trust Jameis.

The problem with the Chiefs-Patriots game is that the Chiefs are the worst rushing defense in the league based on DVOA - by a large margin. Belichick may likely gameplan to constantly hand the ball off to Sony Michel all game, manhandling time of possession and keeping his defense rested. This may result in less time of possession and less opportunities for Mahomes, and the Chiefs may be forced into a situation where they need to run the ball more to rest their defense also.

https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamdef

The Buccaneers haven't been able to run the ball against anyone this year, and they are going up against a Falcons defense that is 28th in the league by DVOA against the pass. The Buccaneers happen to be the worst defense in the league at defending the pass, and the Falcons with a gimpy Devonte Freeman will likely be invited to pass all over top of the Tampa Bay defense and score at will. This game could likely be a aerial shootout with a very high number of plays (opportunities) for both teams, and Jameis has historically been good against Atlanta. In his last 3 games, he's gone for 11 touchdowns with 1 interception for an average QBR of 125.

https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/W/WinsJa00/gamelog/?opp_id=atl

I'd start Jameis Winston over Mahomes personally, but there is the possibility that the Tampa coaching staff tries to forcefeed the ball to Ronald Jones against a poor rushing defense to try to prove that they didn't fuck up drafting this guy in the second round. I haven't seen anything from Ronald Jones or Peyton Barber to make me think they can run the ball against any defense though, so this plan will likely get abandoned early on if they try to go with it. Since people seem to be dropping Ronald Jones off of rosters everywhere, you could consider picking him up if he's available in your league just in case. In the event that he turns out to have been off to a slow start and actually is a decent back, you may end up wagering your poor QB performance in one game for a serviceable RB for the rest of the season.

^^KC didn't roll the Pats last year- they were trailing in the 3rd. NE made the mistake of thinking Alex Smith would dink and dunk like he normally does, and they got burned on deep touchdowns twice to a rookie running back they had no film on due to it being the opening game of the season. They also got burned on a third deep touchdown to Tyreek Hill, again by a QB with a track record of never throwing the deep ball. Alex Smith looked every bit as good as Patrick Mahomes in that game, with the advantage of playing NE before they had the opportunity to study five weeks of film on their habits.

Thanks for the analysis. To be clear, I'm not gonna start Winston, mostly because Mahomes is a freaking monster and NE will give up some yards, but also because Winston threw 2 picks in limited time in his last outing and can't be trusted yet. The potential shootout is inviting, but not inviting enough to move me off the QB1 of this season so far.

All that said, I'm normally wrong when it comes to fantasy so expecting Winston to outperform...but I can't take the risk.

Wait for the QB change coming this week. The fans booed every pass last night in the first half - they've got to make a change. A soft Falcons secondary next week would be a good start for a new QB.

So basically you are stuck with OBJ until they draft a QB in 2019.

You really think Alex Tanney (with 99 career passing yards in 7 seasons) or Kyle Lauletta (a rookie from an FCS school) are going to come in and be an improvement? LOL

The Giants have continued to ignore the QB position and it has came back to bite them in the ass.

Their OL is pretty bad too, so I'm not sure anybody else would really be able to do much anyway. Just kinda wish a few times Eli said fuck it and threw it into double coverage instead of taking the sack.

And my league is weird. TDs are significantly more important than the catches or yards (non PPR, 25 yards per point) so OBJ has given me a few 4 point games, the big game last week, and 3 duds. But after looking at it, he's still the best option I have anyway.

Their OL isn't terrible this year, I saw some numbers that had them in the middle of the pack in pass protection this year. Eli is just holding onto the ball for a ridiculous amount of time. A replacement level QB would definitely be better, but the Giants don't have anyone.
