Oh and I'd be sending out trade offers for Dez asap, some juicy matchups over the next few weeks, especially if Josh Norman remains out

So from what I understand this is what the players union thought could happen. They plan on just refiling an injunction once again. Hopefully to push it off until the offseason. I don't know, I have no idea what's going to happen.

I'm in 3 leagues and took Zeke in each one. I really danced with the Devil.

As far as the Cowboys is concerned, I'm not sure who would be the backup to grab is. Alf was anointed the backup role however I think it's strange that dmc has been inactive. Why keep him standing on the sidelines each week and not ready to play? He plays special teams. If something happened to Zeke or alf they would have just Rod Smith to carry the ball. Something smells fishy. I sorta think they are trying to keep DMC fresh. They know he could run down or get injured based on his history.

They don't have Dunbar anymore and Zeke is used as every down running back. He has run the most routes in the NFL this season. Having said that if he is no longer there would Alf do that? Hell no. The dude can't catch and has a problem in pass protection. They love Morris with power runs. Anything grinding the clock, goal lines or short yardage.
They would clearly need DMC to play hurry up, passing Downs and when they're climbing back into games.

So bottom line it would be a mess. I have a feeling Alf would get goal lines making him more valuable in standard leagues. DMC would get the receptions making him more valuable in PPR. Basically they would each be half of the production of Zeke. Also don't count out rod smith eating into things. They like him a lot as well. So yes this would be a mess. Honestly I wouldn't pick up anyone unless I'm desperate. In a PPR I would go McFadden I think.

This is just my opinion from watching every snap of this frustrating team.

I picked up Alf in all of my leagues on Tuesday so it's gonna be DMC who gets the lead role.

I'm not pretending like I know the answer. I don't think either one will have the lead but that's just me. I think they're both going to split duties to try to make up what tzikas essentially by himself.
Like I said if you're in standard lean towards Morris
PPR lean towards McFadden

A very important thing to note is that the line is playing terribly so far. I think people assume one of these guys will just get behind this big Great Wall and put up great numbers. Zeke who is an elite pack hasn't been so far so why would a running back half the caliber of Zeke do so? They lost Ronald Leary and free in the offseason and Tyron Smith is playing hurt. Travis Frederick isn't the same this season for whatever reason.

This is all my opinion

Another thing is Dallas played with the lead the last few years. They were able to grind the clock away with power running. Which is Morris's Style. This year they are giving up 30 points a game. They are in shootouts. That seems to scream McFadden.

Dude him and Fournette are singlehandedly carrying my team because I lost DJ and my wide receiving core is a dumpster fire.

PPR flex: john brown, james white, or aaron jones

Currently have brown in but he's burned me before. Also starting brady, not that it really matters with white. I was gonna wait on jones for a week to see what ty looks like (but with hyde as my rb2 I may need him there if things keep going south)

I've got an important game this week against my rival in my big money league. Which RB should I go with (non-ppr)?

Abdullah @ New Orleans
Gillislee vs Jets
McGuire @ New England

All three defenses stink. Abdullah is probably the most talented of the three, but the Lions' offense has been real rusty. Gillislee has the safest floor, but he's highly TD dependent. McGuire has the most upside, but if the game turns into a shootout, I don't know if he'll get carries over Forte. Right now I'm leaning towards playing the RB on the best team: Gillislee.

Thats a tricky trio to choose from but yeah Gillislee might be the safest option.

Also I can’t believe I’m actually having to stress about a kicker thanks to Matt Bryant

WEEK 6 CORNER LIST

Peterson AZ vs Mike Evans TB
Sherman Sea vs BYE
Den 3 CBs vs NY Giants Practice Squad Recievers :lol:
Jenkins NYG vs D. Thomas Den
Hayward LAC vs Crabtree? Oak
Rhodes Min vs Jordy Nelson GB
Lattimore NO vs Det Lions
JAC Jaguars vs LA Rams

I took Marcus Peters KC and Darius Slay off this list cause IMO they arent really stopping anyone right now.
i added A. J. Bouye to the combo of him and Ramsey as the Jags CBs are to top rated duo in the NFL currently. try to avoid them.
Giants Jenkins should shadow demaryius thomas Den.
Love emmanuel sanders matchup vs Eli Apple. Giants DRC also suspended.

Rolled the dice with Ingram in both teams which paid off nicely.

Hard to get a read on him tbh. Is he worth playing more weeks than not with Peterson gone?

John Brown putting together a couple solid games. Also, never thought I'd be benching Jordan Reed repeatedly, but Brate has been that good. I almost stroked out when Fournette went down briefly.
