Welcome! We have just about made it through two full weeks of NFL football, and the picture is starting to become a little bit more clear. What have we learned? Lamar Jackson is the talk of the league, even though Patrick Mahomes is still killing it for the Chiefs. Kyler Murray and the air raid offense are getting better, but they aren’t all the way there yet. Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger could be in some injury trouble. The Miami Dolphins have already given up 102 combined points (that’s not a typo…I meany 102) in their first two games. Oh, and did I mention that the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers are both 2-0? Yeah, it’s been crazy. Here’s what we saw in week 2.
I know it’s only week 2 and it’s only their first game with Antonio Brown in, but do you see Josh Gordon’s value tanking enough to make him a drop? Seems like a crazy thought since Brady has always spread the carries but even though they played the dolphins this week, it seems like it’s going to be the Edelman/AB show. With side performances from Gordon.
And with Chark, Deebo and Mostert available on the waivers, I’m wondering whether it’s a good idea to cut him loose early if it means I can grab one of them.
Totally commented this in the wrong game analysis! Thought I was still on the dolphins v patriots thread. Sorry!
I was on my way back to this thread to also ask if you think Moncrief is droppable now. The big question mark I see is with Big Ben being potentially out for a few weeks, but (again it’s only week 2 I know), it hasn’t looked very good for Moncrief.
Hey Jess! I would hold on to Gordon. You drafted him for his talent so stay the course! As for Moncrief feel free dropping him. I’ve seen nothing from him in the first two weeks and now he lost his QB (it appears right now that the injury is serious). Unless Moncrief has an epiphany this week, he looks to be out of the league soon.
Mixon didn’t fumble on his first touch. Watch it again. Dalton never handed it to him. Dalton basically just dropped it.
good catch! It appears the box score agrees with you as well. I’ll fix it.
So I have Chris Carson. Rashaad Penny is on waivers right now. Should I drop Chris Thompson or Tarik Cohen for him, or keeping both of those backs is fine. I’m in a full PPR league.
So I didn’t get a chance to see the Seahawks play this week, but apparently Chris Carson fumbled (and almost did a second time). Some coaches react quickly to this, so Penny should be owned for sure…just in case. I would probably drop Thompson in order to pick up Penny
