"Ekeler is averaging more yards per carry in his 3 games as starter than Gordon has averaged in his career.

"


4.2 YPC vs 5.1YPC last year for Gordon. Ekeler is barely at 3YPC between the tackles - all of his success is based on bouncing to the outside, which is good for yardage but not good for grinding out the clock when you have a lead. The Chargers have led at halftime in all 3 games and needed overtime for their only win so far this season.

And Trent Scott wasn't LT last year. And those late game issues stem more from the defense just lacking depth because of injuries. They're down like 2 CBs and 2 all-pro safeties right now.

Ekeler averaged 5.2 ypc last year. Also last year was an outlier for Gordon. He'd never even averaged 4 ypc in the 3 previous years.

Obviously when Gordon gets back up to full speed he'll be the lead back, but I think the timeshare will be closer than you think. I'd say they'll try and get Gordon ~15 touches and Ekeler ~ 10. Gordon isn't anything special in the red zone, he is basically league average on goal line carries and Ekeler is much more dangerous as a receiver.

You're valuing Gordon as like a top 5 RB and I'm not and that's ok.

But whatever, this isn't really a discussion for a fantasy thread anymore.

I'd probably go with Brady. I always have the worst luck starting guys who play on Thursdays. Fuck those short weeks. Also don't carry 3qbs unless this is a dynasty/keeper league and you really love Murray.

It's a keeper league with a big bench. Funny thing is, Brady wasn't even drafted in this league. I haven't played Kyler yet but don't really need his bench spot at this point.

Ended up going with Rodgers tonight, downside is I'm playing against Davante Adams

That's insane Brady wasn't drafted. He's consistently a top 10-12 fantasy QB.

Yeah, even more crazy that one of the guys in the league lives in Boston and is your typical obnoxious Brady lover. It's an 8 team league though, so plenty of good players didn't get drafted

Ahh. Yeah I optically wouldn't draft him in an 8 team league. Of course in an 8 team league I probably would never carry multiple QBs, except as a bye week fill in, but that's just me. I don't even start thinking about 2 unless it's a 12+ team league.

Of course I tend to overthink matchups rather than just playing the better player so part of the reason I roll with 1 QB is to eliminate that at 1 position. The other reason is I'm greedy and need all the RB/WR I can smash onto a roster.

Winston @ NO
Kyler @ CIN
Garropolo vs CLE
Brissett @ KC

Seeing who I should stream this week. Leaning Winston. Could also go Dalton, Flacco, Bridgewater, Cousins but I don't really like any of them.

Most upside is against NO, but I'd go with Jacoby. Safe and against KC poor defense.

Going into MNF, down 3 points, with only Jarvis Landry remaining and facing Baker Mayfield, I thought I was done for. Probably still am, but I'm up 5 at the half.

Raise your hand if you didn't start Aaron Jones this week.

Fortunately I started him. But the team I was playing failed to start Fuller V. Needless to say, it was a massacre.

Thoughts on either keeping Eagles D @Min, or dropping them for Wash D @Mia?

^^My strategy this year has basically been to pickup the available D with the best matchup. But it makes decisions like this a gamble. I am thinking i need to stick with my strategy and pickup Wash D.

Thielan was sick today...and #sources say he's sick as hell. Not sure it'll impact him Sunday, but I'd consider starting Edelman tonight instead to be safe. That's a good play

Everything about Edelman's match-up tonight screams big night, but that just means I'm sure it'll be a huge Michel/White game.

Giants have one of the worst secondaries in the league.
Pats without Burkhead or Dorsett to steal catches.

Going against the #1 team in the league, who just happens to have the NE defense. My projection went from losing by 15 to losing by 30

Ended up working out well for me this week. Redskins D finished with 10 pts, and the Eagles D got crushed.

so far my MVP this year is New England's defense. my most underperforming fucke is Joe Mixon. Luckily he seems like a good person off the field.

Someone dropped brandin cooks and I've got a good shot to snag him. Would y'all drop metcalf for him? I feel like metcalf has more explosion and (right now) is in a better offense, while cooks was good up until the past 2 weeks. Or should I keep metcalf and drop latavius murray despite him likely starting this week.

I would keep Murray as long as Kamara is hurt. And I'd rather have RW throwing to Metcalf than Goof throwing to Cooks.

Had a tie in my ESPN league last weekend. ESPN still gave me the win for some reason. But did some digging and realized that ESPN just shows the rounded score to one decimal place. If you hover over your score on the box score page it reveals your point total to two decimal places. Only QB really uses the 2 decimal places, and that's where I won (my score was rounded down, opponent's was rounded up).
