    I think I’m even more interested in Zeke this week than last (and I was 100% Zeke last week).

    Everyone will flock to KC/Ind or to the Rams or Saints offenses… ownership should be way down.

    In their last competitive game of the season, the Rams allowed 30 points to the Eagles, including 25/76/3 to Smallwood/Adams. Assuming Zeke gets 25 touches (he should get at least 30), would we be happy with 76 yards and 3 TDs? I think we would, yes. And that’s before all those PPR points add up.

    Yeah, I don’t think we disagree much here, but it’s certainly still notable imo.

    This is one of the stats I came across: “”(player-popup #amari-cooper)Amari Cooper”:/players/amari-cooper-21757 in his career vs Broncos has 2 catches on 9 targets for 8 yards when guarded by Aqib Talib. He has 15 catches on 28 targets for 152 yards against everyone else”

    If Dallas was smart they would play Amari Cooper in the slot, but I highly doubt they will. Hopefully they will at least line him up away from Aquib most drives bc LAR doesn’t move them around.

    That could be, line up Cooper outside against Peters. That would make Gallup a pretty thin play.

    I’m guessing Coutee did the bulk of his damage vs Ind from the slot? D Rob is slot WR for KC tho Conley’s been out-snapping him. Similar outcome? Or is the middle of the field all Travis’?

    He did, but only because Hopkins was gimpy and the Texans don’t really have a viable TE. I think it bodes well for Kelce, not as excited about D-Rob/Conley/Benjamin/Watkins.

  • kdsdawg

    so that outcome guarantees Zeke to copy that..then heck ya sign me up

    in all seriousness…at 9K on DK..he needs to top 30 with the other RBs on this slate and their respective prices

    If Zeke gets 25 carries, I highly doubt he ends up with 76 yards vs the Rams 28th DVOA run D.

    well homey…I stand by my original statement..he still needs 30..
    now go back to the basement

    @Gtzerphy said...

    Both of Foles picks were thrown with Philly in FG range, so you could argue that they left at least 6 points out there which would have made the ending irrelevant.

    True, I think Philly did what they needed to do and more importantly executed when they needed to besides a couple iffy/bad interceptions.

  • BIF

    Looks like my Bucs are gonna get their guy in Bruce Arians and it sounds like Todd Bowles will be our Def Coordinator – I’m pretty happy if those guys sign deals but I’d like it even more if Monken would somehow stay on and re-sign as OC but he has drawn lots of Head Coach interest already from Packers, Jets and Bengals.

    With the soft pricing on DK why not lock in zeke and mack and then go from there?

    yes..as long as I get 30 out of him…

    Who else has a shot to give you 30? Only logical pivot is Kamara.

    that is a good place to start at $900 discount

    look, I am not fading Zeke 100%..just stating facts..he needs 30 at that price…I can most likely get 25 from Mack at $5800 ..may play them both…but as the most expensive on the slate..he needs to pay off

    @kdsdawg said...

    As long as you’re happy getting that 25 with 50% of the field in a game Luck might have to throw more than usual, which is a lot

  • HoodsFromTheWood

    @kdsdawg said...

    so game script caused the Colts to not involve Hines at all Saturday…not one target nor one carry
    one would think this game script would be different..we know KC can put up the points

    Kinda contradicts your “most likely get 25 from Mack” theory

    Hoods, I can’t play Mack this weekend. I just don’t want to have a mouthful of chalk. $3,300 for low owned Hines sounds kind of juicy though.

    I’m almost of the mind that Zeke, most expensive player on the slate, might be under-owned. Mack, cheap + KC sucks vs run,7 pt home fav Gurley and Kamara is always a crowd fav. Factor in MGIII, Williams and Michel and maybe he’s 20%-ish? It’s been said CJ’s gonna spell Gurley a bit, MGIII’s wearing braces on both knee’s, Zeke should lead all RB’s in opportunities by a healthy margin. LA’s given up the 8th most rushing yds to the RB position this year, hovering about 5 yds/carry most of the year tho they’re stingy to the receiving end of the RB spectrum. I think Dallas keeps it close and Zeke eats.

    Not sure if he’s good chalk or bad. Can I let you know Monday lol? More RB’s than not have had success at Arrowhead this year. Geez, Yeldon had 26 DKpts vs them. I think Indy hangs with KC and keeps Mack involved. With Indy’s O-line playing at an elite level, it’s chalk I’ll be using

  • JTreadway

    If the play was high priced backs all year and now they’re priced down why are we all talking ourselves off it? Myself included.

    Sidenote: BA to Bucs looks like the absolute PERFECT fit for Le’Veon and if it happens I will take him #1 overall in season long next year.

    Re: Zeke

    Is anyone worried about gameflow? Cowboys have been bad on the road especially against decent teams (remember the 23-0 vs indy just a few weeks ago?) and the Rams can put up points and are coming off a BYE…..If the cowboys trail I dont think zeke can put up 30pts which means your lineup will not win a GPP

    You also have to worry about Dak stealing the rushing TDs

    We gained 1 more yd per play 5.7-4.7, had 57 more total yards and won the TO over battle 2-0.

    So apparently, the stats watched a different game then you. Those stats equal winning 80 percent of the time in the NFL.

    Wasn’t our best game, deserved to win. Should have been more aggressive early and canned our kicker mid season. Our QB took a step forward after nerves settled, everyone is back next year.

    My man Mike, in one sentence you say ‘deserved to win’ and your next sentence you say ‘should have been more aggressive early and canned our kicker mid season’. I don’t think those things go together but what I’m saying is I love Nagy but that loss is on him and the staff. Luckily I think he’s one of not too many coaches that will learn from it. I’m interested to see what you guys do in the offseason. Stick with Burton? Jordan Howard? Add a WR? Interesting team in the offseason
