They tell you how to manage your FAAB budget, the RBs to target based on your specific team needs while debating whether Ronnie Hillman, Jerick McKinnon or Tre Mason is the better long-term Week 8 waiver wire pickup and whether Anthony Dixon or Bryce Brown is the RB to own in Buffalo.

I don’t understand how Ronnie Hillman is so available. If you’re reading this and he’s still on the Week 8 waiver wire in your league, what’s your deal, PALLLL? Seriously, HILLMANIA IS GONNA RUN WILD ON YOU, BROTHER … Moving on to the leagues not populated with morons… Hope you have some FAAB dollars hidden under the mattress for the Week 8 Waiver Wire because Tre Mason is likely available, and you’re going to want him. Mason shredded the Seahawks for 85 yards on 18 carries and a score, but, it’s not his 4.7 ypc against a generally stout run D that’s important here, it was his share of the backfield workload. Mason devoured the pie chart, falling just short of things Meatloaf would do for love levels of domination, getting 90-percent of the running back carries. Now, nothing’s a guarantee, but it appears Mason has usurped both Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy as the starter in St. Louis. If you have worries about Cunningham – DON’T!!!! – he received fewer carries than Tavon Austin out of the backfield, so I’m not sweating him. Be-Be-Be-Benny did do damage in the passing game (5-46-1), which is a positive, but places him more in the Roy Helu/Dexter McCluster category: deep league PPR option only. Zac Stacy? He played one snap. ONE!!! I’m breaking the FAAB bank on Mason, I suggest you do the same… Denard Robinson was named Jacksonville’s starting running back about an hour before kickoff and LITERALLY ran away with the role. Shoelaces got 22 carries for 127 yards and a TD, presumably earning him another week with the job. I’d love to overreact and call Robinson a MUST ADD; I won’t, however. I just have no faith in this offense. The offensive line? It’s truly bad. Entering Week 7, it rated 31st in run blocking per Pro Football Focus. I just don’t see Robinson’s success being sustainable, even if he continues to see the majority of touches – something he won’t do btw. Storm Johnson will eventually be given another shot at the job. And, while it may seem like Toby Gerhart has suffered a similar fate as Ozzie Smith, be assured, he hasn’t fallen into the abyss at the Springfield Mystery Spot. He’ll eventually be back in uniform too. Don’t expect Gerhart to reclaim his starting gig, but he’ll get enough touches to suck value away from the other RBs. Robinson is a nice add if you can get him for cheap, no doubt, but he’s going to cost more FAAB clams than I’m willing to shell out… After Fred Jackson exited with a groin injury, C.J. Spiller FINALLY got his chance to bust out, answering the prayers of many disgruntled Fantasy owners. And he did, quickly too. Spiller gained 53 yards on his first carry………… and broke his collarbone at the end of the play. Spiller’s season (and time in Buffalo) is likely finished. Since Bryce Brown was inactive (like he’s been all season), Anthony Dixon got the rock 16 times (13 carries, 3 receptions) and looked like a passable NFL running back. On the Week 8 waiver wire, both are confusing players to assess for two reasons: We have no indication which of the duo will play the most snaps and the results of Jackson’s MRI have not been revealed. Currently, Jackson is expected to miss four weeks, but injuries have been repeatedly falsely reported this season, so you simply cannot discount that he may be fine in two weeks. If Jackson’s MRI reveals he’ll be out two weeks or more, I’d be targeting Dixon over Brown. If Buffalo wanted Brown to be its starter, why has he been inactive all year? Plus, Buffalo knows its’ defense is a strength and giving the majority of snaps to a capable pass blocker, that doesn’t turn the ball over, limits the probability of turnovers, leaving that defense with a short field to protect. Brown probably has more upside, and could certainly run away with the job because of his explosiveness, but I’m wagering the Bills’ coaching staff will play this conservatively. I’ll be putting in mid-range FAAB bids on Dixon if I need immediate RB assistance and a few slightly smaller ones in on Brown in deeper leagues. Unless the coaching staff comes out and clears this situation up for us (unlikely), it’s all just educated guesswork.  UPDATE: Early reports have many coming out in support of Brown, but the Bills still have Dixon listed ahead of him on the depth chart. Most Fantasy players will gravitate towards Brown, creating a mini discount on Dixon’s services in the FAAB market…  Don’t worry about Terrance West being on the field and Isaiah Crowell not having the best of games. Crowell is still the top RB stash on the market… A bizarre situation cropped up in the Cardinals/Raiders showdown when Stepfan (I’m more of a Swimfan, to be honest) Taylor was given the ball three straight times inside the five and caught a TD pass from Carson Palmer, with Andre Ellington spectating from the sidelines. Then, he hamburgled another four yard TD run after Ellington drove the Cards into the red zone. I’m astonished he didn’t regenerate in the Sunday nighter to steal Bruce Ellington’s TD. No one likes you Stepfan Taylor, GO AWAY. Unless you’re in 14-plus team leagues, then there may be value to be had… After the mad, mad, mad, mad scramble to scoop up Brandon Bolden and James White before the Thursday nighter, recently promoted practice squad RB Jonas Gray actually ended up with the most non-Shane Vereen carries. Another example of why relying on a New England RB is foolish. Gray appears like he’ll do the work between the tackles, but that could randomly shift back to Bolden or White next week. Just avoid the situation if you can help it, it will lead to fewer bench mistakes. Oh, remember: sell high on Vereen… Pierre Thomas left the Saints game with a shoulder injury in the second half, but even before that point, Travaris Cadet was seeing his share of targets anyway. At 29, Thomas is looking slower and Cadet may eventually absorb the full time route running duties out of New Orleans’ backfield. He’s an add in deeper PPR formats. Obviously, there’s a clearer path to production if Thomas is out an extended period of time.

Fantasy Football: Week 7 Injury Report & Replacement Pickups

Fantasy Football: Week 7 Injury Report & Replacement Pickups

Patrick Mayo, Staff Writer October 17, 2014

FNTSY Sports Network’s Pat Mayo & Laura Diakun run through the most significant names on the Week 7 Injury report. They discuss whether Jimmy Graham should be in your lineup Sunday if he’s active against the Lions, which TEs you should still start over him anyway and the probability of this merely being a smokescreen by the Saints. They give you QB alternatives for Matthew Stafford now that appears he’ll be without both Calvin Johnson and Eric Ebron, while explaining why Kelvin Benjamin needs to be started if he’s active against the Packers. Plus, Mayo gives you the blueprint to selling Shane Vereen for maximum value after his gigantic performance Thursday night, tells you how to treat Jordan Reed moving forward, and presents a Week 7 tight end sleeper that you can plug into the lineup… if you’re desperate.
