Chubb makes his case
Nick Chubb scored touchdowns from 63 yards and 41 yards on Sunday. He had just 3 carries and scored twice. He averaged 35 yards per carry on Sunday. Naturally, we project him to have about 100 more carries this season. So, you can expect over 3,500 yards and over 65 touchdowns this year from Chubb. Might want to pick him up if available, extrapolation is always right.
Keke breaks rookie record
Keke Coutee broke the NFL record for most receptions by a rookie in his first career game with 11 grabs on 15 targets. A favorite of Fanball’s Scott Fish, he should be owned in all dynasty leagues (unless you have a ridiculously small amount of roster spots) and if you have the room, even redraft leagues. There may not always be that much meat on the bone for Coutee, but Will Fuller V seems to get hurt often.
Trubisky lights up Bucs
The Bucs were the worst pass defense in the NFL last year. Going into this game, they were 2nd worst this year (now worst again). If Mitchell Trubisky can put up 400+ yards and 6 scores, anyone can. For your edification, here is the Bucs remaining schedule weeks 6 through 16: Falcons, Browns, Bengals, Panthers, Washington, Giants, 49ers, Panthers, Saints, Ravens, Cowboys. Lots of quarterbacks in that schedule might be available on your waiver wire.
Sam Bradford isn’t even active this week. He isn’t hurt, the Cardinals would just rather save a few hundred thousand than have him active. Rosen will get the start, Glennon will back him up. The Cardinals have a $20 million 3rd stringer.
Chris Carson will be out for today’s game. Get him out of your lineups if he was in there for some reason.
Fournette Listed As Questionable
The Jaguars have officially listed Leonard Fournette as Questionable. However, after getting in a full practice per Jaguars’ beat writer Daniel Pooper, he looks set to make his return. The setup could scarcely be better as a massive home favorite against a team who just got gashed by Carlos Hyde in Week 3. Owners who have gotten little from their heavy investment into Fournette can safely insert him in lineups once official word comes down he is Active. Jacksonville has wisely handled his hamstring injury with caution.
Baldwin to play
Looks like Doug Baldwin is going to suit up and play this weekend. It’s a great matchup for Baldwin, but he may very well be on a snap count. It’s a very risky proposition. At $6,400 on Fanball, that may not be cheap enough to take the risk.
Thursday Night Explosion
The Rams and Vikings played one of the best Thursday night games in recent memory. Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins combined for nearly 900 passing yards and 8 touchdowns in a shootout. Thursday night fade strategy took a backseat as 6 different players topped 100 total yards and also 6 different players got into the endzone, although Aldrick Robinson scoring twice helped no one.
Alfred Morris was limited in practice while Matt Breida returned. Breida is on pace to play and should be in for a nice work load with an inexperienced QB in the backfield. In addition Marquise Goodwin practiced fully.
Cook active for Thursday Night
Dalvin Cook will be active tonight and test his hamstring out before the game. Tough situation to start him. We would avoid if you have decent other options.
Jake Butt tore his ACL in practice today. This probably doesn’t effect your fantasy team and Jeff Heuerman does not become a better pick up with this news… we just wanted to put “Butt Hurt” in a headline. We’re 5.
Ajayi practicing in full
Jay Ajayi was upgraded to full participation today and said he has a fracture in his back. A fracture he will play with and it’s just about pain tolerance now. So, Jay Ajayi is super tough and also, this might now mean you should slow your roll on Corey Clement and Wendall Smallwood fantasy starts.
