Stat of the Day: Be Skeptical Of Isaiah Crowell In Week 8

According to ESPN’s Matthew Berry:

“Averaging just 13.3 touches per game the past three games, Crowell is in a legit, full-on time-share and this is a terrible matchup. The Jets are allowing just 3.2 yards per carry (second best in the NFL) and David Johnson is the only RB to score a rushing TD against the Jets since Week 1.”


Crowell has had some big weeks in 2016, but he’s also had some major duds. Given the matchup and the presence of Duke Johnson, it is going to be hard to trust him this week.

Of course the injuries and bye weeks make it impossible to ignore him completely, but he’s more of a low-end RB2/FLEX play as opposed to anything else (and even that could be a stretch). Look at your alternatives before sticking him in your lineup.

    Good morning Prof!
    So Ty Montgomery and Moncreif are FA in a 10-team standard league (no, I don’t have any idea why). My dilemma is I’m not sure I have room for them on my roster. I see Montgomery’s production tailing off once Davis is up to speed on the offense and Starks is back in a few weeks, but he would be an upgrade over Edelman in my starting lineup this week (still listed as a WR in my league). Moncrief will take a couple weeks to get back into game shape, but could be a nice WR 3 down the stretch. Here’s my roster:
    QB: Brady, Wilson
    WR: A. Brown, OBJ, Sanders, Cobb, Edelman, K. Benjamin
    RB: Bell, Freeman, Stewart, Gore, Lewis (IR)
    TE: Walker
    K: Lambo
    D: MN

    What would you suggest?

  7. Gern says:

    One more for another team…

    10-team standard (2 RBs). Which 2 would you start?

    J Rogers
    CMike
    Booker

  8. For Question 1, I’d love to grab Montgomery but like you said there’s no drop there (unfortunately)

    As for the 2nd, I’d sit Booker this week
