Elliott suspended; grab Morris

Grab Off Waivers ASAP

  1. Alfred Morris | RB DAL
  2. Darren McFadden | RB DAL


Note: Both should be owned, but Morris seems to be the top option, and he has shown some explosion at times this year. Rod Smith should also be looked at, he has some good talent, but is behind both runners currently.

Ezekiel Elliott to miss Weeks 7-12; Grab Alfred Morris!

NEWS: Ezekiel Elliott’ 6-game suspension reinstated; The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated Elliott’s temporary injunction.
TAKE: Ezekiel Elliott will now face his 6-game suspension following today’s news. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated Elliott’s temporary injunction, which was allowing him to play. While Elliott will surely seek out a new injunction, the odds are not good he gets to play any of his next six games. The Cowboys have a bye in Week 6, so the suspension will be for Weeks 7-12, which is a brutal and almost unrecoverable hit for current Zeke fantasy owners.

The solution?

Grab Alfred Morris right now off waivers, as the numbers show he is available in well over 40% of most leagues right this second.

Week 5 Waiver Wire Adds

Ok, below are the Week 5 Waiver Wire Adds.

Week 5 Waiver Wire Adds

    Better Not Be Available!

  1. Alvin Kamara (RB/NO) – This kid is for real. He has elite PPR upside and easily has RB2-type rushing stat ability. If NO gives him the ball more between the tackles, he could easily crank out 100 total yards on the regular, and he looks like he could score on near every touch, so he has 8-10TD upside if used in a starter-like role. He is on the Bold Predictions, created before the season, and he should already be owned, as he has been on our top add list every single week.
  2. Doug Martin (RB/TB) – He is back this week from suspension, just make sure he isn’t sitting on waivers, he has high-end RB2 appeal just as soon as he gets back in the swing of things.
  3. Likely Available

  4. Aaron Jones (RB/GB) – He is in line to start Week 5, so he is a must-grab. He had 49 rushing yards on 13 carries in Week 4, and he had a TD. This kid has some skill, so the situation and skill meet. Grab him and let’s hope he gets a full chance to take this job full-time.
  5. Alex Collins (RB/BAL) – The guy fumbled last week, and has a history of it, but he also has back-to-back 82-yard outings on just 9 carries in each game… that’s 9.1 yards per carry in two weeks with 82 yards per game on those two games. Impressive. But, can he hold onto the ball? Grab him in hopes he gets starter carries moving forward.
  6. Thomas Rawls/Eddie Lacy/J.D. McKissic (RB/SEA) – It looks like the Seahawks lose their promising young runner Chris Carson (leg), who was carted off the field in Week 4. That leaves Lacy, Rawls (healthy scratch last week) and J.D. McKissic, who rushed four times for 38 yards and a touchdown against the Colts. It’s tough to say who benefits here from the Carson injury… you have to think Lacy out of the gate, but Rawls and McKissic could get a shot. It’s a messy situation, but in deep leagues, potential starting runners need to be grabbed. We should know more on this depth chart order as the week unfolds, but it sounds like Rawls is the best bet to have the most overall value, but anything can happen here, even CJ Prosise could be the top option in time.
  7. Wayne Gallman (RB/NYG) – After gaining 42 yards on 11 carries, it looks like the Giants will give Gallman a chance to start in Week 5, or at least give him a bulk of the carries. That’s the word on news wires, anyway, but anything can happen. Orleans Darkwa could return, but Gallman still might get his shot and should be owned.
  8. Will Fuller (WR/HOU) – This guy is good when he is healthy. He has WR3 value, at least, when on the field.
  9. Andre Ellington (RB/AZ) – He had only 18 rushing yards in Week 4, but he did have 9 receptions for 86 yards. He is a must own in PPR and is a decent flex play for as long as he stays healthy.
  10. Elijah McGuire (RB/NYJ) – After rushing for 93 yards and a TD on 10 carries, the rookie needs to be grabbed in deeper redraft leagues. I have written on him a bit in the past from a dynasty perspective, but if you haven’t already grabbed him, grab him. Note, Bilal Powell also erupted in Week 4, so he will take the lead dog role for now in NY, but McGuire is strong and will be used often if Powell falters or gets hurt.
  11. Latavius Murray (RB/MIN) – With Dalvin Cook out for the year with a torn ACL, Murray has some solid appeal. Although, the team may still give carries to Jerick McKinnon, though, so both should be added, but Murray has more talent, so we hope that shines through.

Marshawn Lynch a must-add in 2017?

smitty fantasy football adviceShould fantasy football worlds grab Marshawn Lynch right now? In all formats? The quick answer is yes. If you haven’t heard, there have been a ton of rumors swirling around regarding the return of Marshawn Lynch. He is currently retired, and if he returned he would technically be a Seahawk, but the Raiders have been linked to Lynch in recent news and all signs, for now, point to him eventually being a Raider (which would be huge in fantasy).

The Numbers

According to ESPN’s Sheil Kapadia, the Seahawks may be forced to cut Marshawn Lynch if he comes out of retirement. Lynch will be owed $9 million by Seattle, a figure which would take up a big amount of Seattle’s remaining $14.7 million cap space. This would limit them in free agency in the coming weeks.

The Prediction

While anything is possible, and Lynch could come out and shoot all this stuff down, he has been reportedly sporting Raider gear as of late, and many, many reports are suggesting that a return is likely. Grab him in all leagues! Make sure he isn’t sitting on waivers. What will it cost you? Your last bench guy? What could it gain you? An elite RB1, even if low-end, for one more season! Grab him!
