Week 9 Notes + Week 10 Waiver Wire Week

Week 9 Notes + Week 10 Waiver Wire Week

 

 

Injuries

  • kyle allen (ankle)
    • alex smith comes in (325-1-3)
    • terry does terry things 7-115-1
      • currently on pace for 154-100-1390-6
    • they get detroit, cincy, dallas next three, so nothing to worry about with mclaurin imo
  • big ben (mcl sprain)
    • left early, came byke, played well.
    • will probably play with a knee brace
  • matthew stafford (concussion)
    • left game, cleared protocol
  • david johnson (concussion)
    • duke johnson takes over (16-41-1 | 4-32)
    • david johnson's season-high in receptions is 4
    • there wasn't another RB touch on the team,
    • so if DJ can't clear concussion protocol, duke will be a solid RB2 fill-in @ CLV next week 
  • david montgomery (concussion)
    • he'll have an extra day to clear conc. protocol bc they play on monday night next week which gives him a much higher likelihood of playing
    • behind him it's nothing i want a part of, not cordarrelle patterson, or ryan nail
  • cmac - (collarbone/SC joint)
    • fell hard on his shoulder, couldn't finish the game.
    • this is bad, stay up to date with the drs. on twitter - mike davis shouldn't have been dropped, but if he was he could again become the #1 pickup
  • justin jackson (knee)
    • meniscal?
    • ka
    • this might be the grossest committee in the history of the NFL. Frank Gore and Lamicale Perine are close but i have to much respect for Frank.
    • Ballage just needed to get away from Adam Gase tbh
    • They play the Dolphins next week, big revenge game coming for KB??
    • Nah there's not a chance I'm playing Ballage, given the usage, I'm cool using Kelley as a flex if Jackson is out.
    • Tho, the Dolphins have been good against RBs this year. Haven't allowed a rusher above 90 yards on the ground, and only one RB above 35 receiving yards.
  • preston williams (foot)
    • mid sprain or fracture (xrays negative)
    • if it's the first (carson, mixon) - multi-weeks
    • he started getting the chemistry up with tua, so u hate to see this.
    • if he's out for a prolonged period it would obviously be a big upgrade to devante parker, slight boost to gesicki - remember last year over the 2H of the season when Preston was out - huge impact, anything that can make Mike Gesicki look good at football has my attention
  • laviska (hamstring)
    • tweaked it
    • charky season, no one else u want on this team in the passing game
  • noah fant (ankle)
    • injury, came byke in, will see if it swells up or anything.
  • albert o (knee)
    • left the game
    • its gonna be a situation to monitor, both guys practice reports.
    • if fant can practice in full this week we can confidently start him again going forward: they get the Raiders, Dolphins & Saints

Welcome Byke

  • Aaron Jones
    • didnt gaf about resting him after j-willy got put on covid
    • he looked 100%, operated as such
    • he byke
  • Christian McCaffrey
    • was byke, now he's not
    • RB1 in PPG, Rb25 overall lol he's played 3 games (27, 23, 32 fps half ppr)
  • DJ Chark
    • massive game yesterday 7-146-1
    • no shenault, not that he was impacting chark at all, but it's good to see that 1. luton can keep value for chark as QB, 2. chark fully over the ankle injury
  • Christian Kirk
    • L4 games
      • 5-78
      • 2-86-2
      • 5-37-2
      • 5-123-1
    • Those were against the Jets, Cowboys, Seattle, and MIA, so like....
    • He's definitely a sell candidate for me as the schedule is much more difficult going forward. 
    • They get the Bills next week who over the L5 weeks have allowed the 3rd fewest FPs to WRs.
  • John Brown
  • D'Andre Swift?!?
  • Kind of the exact same split we've become accustomed to - Swift doens't get in the endzone but gets real close to hitting 100 yfs.
  • continues to be the leading receiver in the backfield and getting most carries. that's now 3 games without golladay and swift has 5 targets in all 3.
  • tough matchup against washington next week but

Notes

  • J. Taylor was running well, then got stripped for a def. TD
  • AJBrown is a gawd
  • Salvon Ahmed?
    • Pass on anyone in this backfield. Jordan Howard literally averaging 1.2 yards per carry.
    • Ahmed is not good, just trust me on that. Awful prospect, he's bad.
    • Wait until Gaskins comes back or don't play anyone.
  • Evan Engram targets
  • Mike Evans just terrible this year
    • last three games facing marshon lattimore (2 targets, 0 receptions)
