So many things happening in a whirlwind Sunday morning…news and notes and rumors coming from all angles, plus the Video Q&A show 11-1pmET – it’s hard to communicate everything pre-kickoff.
With that in mind, I’m going to open up this post and add to it as I get info or a thought or whatever – notes before kickoff, trends happening on the Video Q&A, breaking betting lines, etc. Whatever I want to note and I’ll clearly mark it with the times so you can see what and when. God Bless us one and all…
*Refresh this page for the latest/look for title time change
-- A lot of questions on WRs...Goodwin or Gabriel or Cole or Enunwa or Kirk
Goodwin and Gabriel (TB down another safety) if you need pts because of THU
Anyone but Enunwa to play safe (fears Enunwa can't go off vs. JAC)
Cole safe, but upside 50-50
-- We're over the moon on Wendell Smallwood with Clement inactive
-- Chris Ivory touches with Marcus Murphy out and McCoy banged up...for the desperate
-- Clement inactive...Wendell Smallwood a great sleeper RB this week
-- Remember about the TB-CHI game...Bears down their top CB Prince Amukamara and backup/useful CB Marcus Cooper
-- Dynasty Stash Report 1.0 is nearly done...100+ offensive players graded/ranked (we'll get into what criteria) -- guys who are likely on waivers/free agency or on fantasy benches, etc. That report may post as early as tonight, but I may hold it for Tuesday morning after we see another week of play to re-rank/analyze situations.
The IDP stash will post later next week, estimated. Close to 100 IDP stash players graded/ranked.
The 2017-18-19 Dynasty Rookie Draft rankings/mock draft will be updated Wednesday, and every Wednesday this season.
-- Video Q&A shows 'on demand'...project in the works to get it done, potentially within 1-2 weeks. FYI
-- Reshad Jones OUT for Miami, that really puts a huge hit on Miami's chances this week.
-- Alshon Jeffrey ACTIVE...probably 'pitch count'
-- The CIN-ATL game line has dropped from -5.5 open to a slow drip to -4.0. It was -3.5 for a few moments this morning. Bengals have heat this week...The Computer was feeling that early this week. The test of the The Computer's read of 2018...who the Lions, Bengals, and Giants do this week.
Also, on the watch list, the Colts...which the line has gone from -2.5 Colts open down to pick 'em today. The public is on Houston.
-- Dez Bryant rumor? Dez to New England if the Pats lose this week.
I think Dez to the Redskins is not out of the question...they have Dallas Weeks 7 and 12.
-- I’m almost positive Marlon Mack will not play today. It’s hard to keep holding this guy, so if you gotta move on you can. But when he’s cleared he’s all the good touches, in theory.
-- Le’Veon Bell trade rumors heating up – I’d say with certainty that he’ll be traded, which means James Conner is an RB1 rest of the season.
Bell to Tampa Bay is my #2 early contender rumor with legs, but my #1 – it’s so natural…send Bell to Miami to help the Dolphins sink the Patriots. It would smooth of the Steelers to do! Raekwon McMillian (to help plug up the ILB situation) + a 2nd-round pick + some other pick for Bell. Possibly DeVante Parker involved.
-- Leonard Fournette should be good-to-go this week. ‘Pitch count’ today? No idea.
-- Terrance Williams is going to be deactivated this week for Dallas…the end is near.
-- Corey Coleman dropped from the Pats practice squad…the end may be near. I’m waiting to hear about some kind of off-field event/suspension.
