why do you like Stevenson so much? Damian Harris is going no where 

The guy just put up over 15 PPR points with Damien Harris in the lineup. I also just think Rhamondre is the more talented back, so whether he's given more work via injury or simply being better, I'd like to invest. 

It's funny you're asking this because I was considering Rhamondre a hit of a stash this week.

IDK why but I just feel like Penny might finally ball out. Carson is gone and we don't know when he is coming back. Carson and Penny health are the reasons why Penny hasn't shined yet. The man is big, athletic, vision, all the traits to be a great RB on a team that wants to run the ball. He is by far better than Alex Collins. penny could bust and get hurt again, but he is worth the risk. That RB job is up for grabs and Penny has the goods. it's worth the risk in my eyes

I think people often make the mistake of assuming the better athlete is the better RB. Penny is a great athlete. He shows special traits and occasionally even translates it into a highlight play. But Collins has absolutely excellent field vision and one cut ability that Penny simply does not possess. 

But none of that is really the point. What's more important is Penny's limited ceiling. When everyone's healthy, he's no better than the #2 behind Carson. I'd argue that Collins has officially earned legitimate touches moving forward after posting the team's first 100+ yard rushing performance since 2019, against a stingy PIT defense no less. So you could argue Penny comes back as the #3. He'll also never be the preferred receiving back over DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. The team didn't take his option, so they owe him nothing and clearly have fringe feelings on his future with the team. I actually really like Penny as a player (Hawks fan here) but I just don't see a realistic path to him carving out meaningful fantasy value for you.
