Let's use this thread as the thread for the rest of the season. Let's chat about some rest of season rankings, stuff you'd like to see added or addressed in the weekly articles and start speculating wildly about RBs for the rest of the way!
So ask us anything!!! This season's been an absolute blast and lets get in as much fun as we can before we head into the off season.

Which RB currently on most waiver wires has a chance to win PPR championships given schedule/opportunity?
Burkhead? TyMo? Latavius? Freeman?
#3 By: hrr5010, November 17th, 2018 12:46
Here's how I'd be ranking them:
1) Royce Freeman. Ugly time share, but it's still the best schedule ROS. They should be phasing out Booker now that they're out of their bye and if Lindsay gets hurt, it should be Royce time.
2) Rex Burkhead: He's eligible to return, but no guarantee he sees run down the stretch. This is probably more of a move to ensure that they're able to utilize him in the playoffs or he's their contingency plan in case either White or Sony get hurt. He could be useful Weeks 14-16, so pick him up.
3) Latavius: Dalvin looked healthy right before the Vikes went into their bye. Latavius is healthy but he's not as explosive. Probably will cede high leverage touches to Dalvin.
4) TyMo: No evidence he's active yet. Maybe takes over the Buck Allen role, maybe not. Could be a guy they want for next year.

On the flip side, which early round stud RB will disappoint due to schedule? Hunt? Kamara??
#5 By: hrr5010, November 17th, 2018 13:15
ROS schedule prefers Hunt slightly going forward.
Kamara's not exactly splitting the backfield with Ingram, but in games where the opposing offense is bad or the game gets out of hand.. it turns into an Ingram game. I'd say Hunt is the guy you'd want, but the difference is very close.

Hey Hasan, I am rolling with pretty good set of RBs, and have first Rd bye locked with 9-1. Question is how to use bench spots, we have a limit on # of Rbs we can roster at 8. After you take away Barkley, CMC, mack, Chubb and Kerryon. I have 3 spots left. I currently have Malcolm Brown, Josh Adams and Rod Smith. I cannot decide between Rod Smith, Tymo, and Ridley. I also have Rex on IR spot. Anything else you suggest ?
#7 By: hrr5010, November 17th, 2018 22:52
Brown and Smith are good holds. Burkhead/TyMo won’t crack your roster. Josh Adams will never get any run so he’s a safe drop as well. Would that be Calvin Ridley? I’d hold him for a longer time.
#8 By: Ginoooooobliii, November 18th, 2018 00:31
No. Stevan Ridley, PIT RB. Should have clarified.
#9 By: hrr5010, November 18th, 2018 11:56
Oh absolutely not. You shouldn't roster any of those guys!! Who are some WRs? lets try and find some upside there.
#10 By: Ginoooooobliii, November 19th, 2018 02:13
Yeah. Here's the full roster.
QB: Rodgers, Lamar Jackson
RB: Saq, CMC, Mack, Chubb, kerryon, Malcolm brown, rod Smith and Josh Adams (Rex on IR spot)
WR: MT, Juju, Keke, smokey. Tre'quan, Curtis Samuel and John Ross are on ww ( I had to drop trequan to create room, and of course he took off today. SMH. Hopefully I can get him back)
Team has firsr Rd bye locked. 12 team. 1 pt ppr

Would you rather have DEN (@Oak) or NE (BUF) for week 16 matchup? Currently have BAL and home vs TB week 15 I think I am okay with
#12 By: hrr5010, November 19th, 2018 10:58
I'd much rather have NEP but i like that BAL move as well. That's a fierce defense.
@turndownforwatt i'd be absolutely snagging those guys up on waivers. Prioritize Quan over the other two, but you need the help at WR. It'll help buoy you into the playoffs.
#13 By: Ginoooooobliii, November 19th, 2018 12:38
Also, TE = Ertz. I forgot to add I also have Josh Reynolds. We also have IDP.
Yeah, I am blowing the budget on Tre'Quan, hope I get him. Part of this is also playing defense against other teams. We start 2wr, 2rb, 2flex, 1 TE.
Two questions: 1. I would think you prioritize Ross > Samuels? 2. Should I roster Ljax? I think I should, but I usually don't roster two QBs unless its during PO. I might have to drop him to create room.
#14 By: Bzinck15105, November 19th, 2018 14:31
What do we make of Gus Edwards performance? Do we think he can take the lead in that backfield or does this just muddy the waters even more?
#15 By: hrr5010, November 19th, 2018 14:40
@turndownforwatt - I think I'd be fine with either WR, but I'd prioritize Ross over Samuels. I think you should roster Lamar for the interim but it's fine if you want to roll with Aaron Rodgers ROS.
@Bzinck15105 - I think you want Gus Edwards if you're desperate at RB. It's not a four way split. they ride one of the RBs for as long as necessary.
#16 By: Eric, November 19th, 2018 22:32
I’ll be adding Royce where I can this week. Excellent analysis @hrr5010
#17 By: Vince, November 20th, 2018 12:11
Specifically looking at playoffs week 14-16.
Please rank the following Tre'Quan Smith, DJ Moore, Courtland Sutton, Christian Kirk.
#18 By: Shawn Siegele , November 20th, 2018 13:47
But really, it's Moore and then the other three bunched fairly closely (but far behind Moore). Moore has established himself as the No. 1 in Carolina, and though that still allows for plenty of inconsistency in that offense, he's got both the floor and the ceiling over the others.
Kirk is a more consistent part of the Arizona offense than Smith and Sutton, but the AZ offense is so bad that Smith and Sutton could easily jump him if they become larger part of their offenses.
There's a big disconnect between Smith's Week 11 usage and his seasonal usage. I really hope this is the beginning of something special, but we want more than one week to feel confident in that assessment.
Sutton is mostly just a shot guy in a poor passing offense, but he could be the next guy to go off.
(The schedules don't add a bunch of additional information. Denver's is theoretically a little softer, but the total points scored in their games should be lower than the CAR and NO contests.)
#19 By: Ginoooooobliii, November 20th, 2018 14:56
@FF_Contrarian, Is John brown droppable now? My WRs are MT, Juju, Keke, Reynolds, John brown. I
Tre'Quan, John ross and Curtis samuel are available. would you drop JB for either of them? I would think yes for Quan because of the offense right? I probably have first rd bye locked in and don't think I will trust Brown in playoffs despite the schedule.
What are your thoughts on Lamar Jackson, think he is worth holding if you have Rodgers as your QB? I can drop him to get a bench spot cleared.
Also, ROS, who do you like more Gus Edwards or Josh Adams (Bark, CMC, Kerryon, Chubb, mack and Burkhead are my RBs, barring injury, I doubt either Edwards or Adams crack the starting lineup)
#20 By: William Russell, November 20th, 2018 15:39
@FF_Contrarian great post but tough read as I have Smith & Sutton but not Moore
Didn't grab him quick enough off waivers last wk (as already had Funchess) and my wk12 opponent took him.
Is there any hope that Funchess improves at this point? He still had 8 targets on Sun and still sees lots of volume despite often doing little with it.
