  1. Start/Sit and Weekly Lineup Help

    @49erurtaza Just to add onto this, if Devin Singletary is full go he should feast pretty good on our linebackers/defense. We looked pretty terrible last week against a good offensive line. Having said that, Montgomery is probably still the play.
  2. SURVIVOR POOL 14 - IT RISES AGAIN!!

    Week 3 - Dallas Cowboys
  3. Start/Sit and Weekly Lineup Help

    Also, I have Kamara (@SEA), Ekeler (HOU), and Montgomery (@WAS). I have to start two. Am I crazy to bench Kamara? Seattle has one of the best run stopping units in football and I feel as though they will scheme to take away the run and make Bridgewater beat them. Bobby Wagner will also be matched up with Kamara. Thoughts?
  4. Start/Sit and Weekly Lineup Help

    I (smartly) sat OJ Howard for Darren Waller last week after the Week 1 flop. With a matchup versus the Giants this week at home I'm tempted to go back to Howard. Do I start him or go back to the Waller well (@MIN)?
  5. Would you rather...?

    I think they call that an oxymoron.
  6. Would you rather...?

    Agreed. Dalton has capped. Though I still think he's better than the Kirk Cousins, Jameis Winston's, Marcus Mariota's etc. of the league. I'd understand the decision either way. While a rookie might get killed with this supporting cast, would that be worse than staying the course? When I look at it that way, I'd rather take a QB and hope we hit. Watching Deshaun Watson run around and get beat up still looks more enticing than what we've got going now.
  7. It's also worth noting that Pittsburgh is also down a 3rd round pick next year as part of the Devin Bush trade.
  8. Would you rather...?

    It all depends on the QB(s) in question. If there's a true franchise QB worth the pick, take him. If not keep fortifying the trenches. Bringing in a rookie QB with this supporting cast is suicide. I like Dalton, and I like what I've seen from Finley and Dolegala. I'm not in a rush to give them all the ax just yet. And like I've said before, Jordan Love is the guy I have my eye on right now. Let's see how the rest of the year plays out.
  9. Trade a future top 10 pick for Fitzpatrick? Things aren’t so bad after all.
  10. MNF: Browns @ Jets

    I feel like a legit playoff team would have buried the Jets by now.
  11. Buy / Sell / Hold

    That's fair. One way or another barring health he should still end up with at least 1,200 all purpose yards and 8-10 TDs.
  12. No ups, lots of downs - 49ers Version

    I still think it's somewhat still the "strength" of the defense (if you can even call it that). It's just hard to rush that passer when you're getting gashed for 10 yards a carry.
  13. Buy / Sell / Hold

    Evaluating Mixon's worth is tough; on one hand, he can't get much worse. On the other hand, the grass isn't going to get much greener given our offensive line. Simply put, our running game is nonexistent right now. Our patchwork line gets zero push and is routinely penetrated, penalized and pushed back. Mixon has no room to move and is hit almost immediately. The only saving grace is that Cordy Glenn is expected to come back (hopefully) shortly after recovering from a concussion he sustained during the preseason; but he's yet to practice and there have been no rumours of a return as of yet. It's also worth noting that Zac Taylor has not been afraid of abandoning the run and sticking to the pass. Dalton had 51 attempts versus Seattle (in what was a back and forth, close game), and 42 versus San Francisco (naturally, because it was a blow out). Now, that could change if Glenn comes back and things improve or if their is a theoretical emphasis placed on running the ball, but I wouldn't bet on it. Still, Mixon is too good not to try and give the ball to, and when things aren't working on the ground he'll still see a fair share of work in the passing game. Our remaining schedule: @BUF, @PIT, ARI, @BAL, JAX, @LAR, BYE, BAL, @OAK, PIT, NYJ, @CLE, NE, @MIA, CLE (italicized is playoffs). The bolded above are some pretty good defensive lines/front sevens. All in all I think it's best to avoid. He'll have a few good outputs here and there (likely Miami, Oakland, Arizona etc.) but will mostly underwhelm. I have him pegged as an RB2/RB3 depending on the match up.
  14. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger done for season

    This could be a blessing in disguise for Pittsburgh. Lose enough games to secure a top 5 pick and take Ben's heir.
