Tarik Cohen (RB/CHI)

I posted a Stock Market write-up on Friday on this guy, and sent out a Sunday morning email on the kid. He was my gut feeling of the start of the season, much like Dak Prescott was last year. Well, it didn’t take him even half a game to shine, and as crazy as this sounds, he may have unseated Jordan Howard already… if not full-time, at least half-time. That’s a huge blow to Howard owners, but hopefully many of you capitalized off of my Stash and Grab Article on Friday, which highlighted grabbing both Cohen and Carson. If either is still available in your league, especially Cohen, grab them! Cohen is such an exciting player, a weapon Chicago cannot keep off the field. He is only 5-6, 179 pounds, but he’s lightning quick, has wiggle like Darren Sproles, and power like no 5-6 rusher I’ve seen. In Week 1, his NFL debut, Cohen rushed five times for 66 yards and caught 8-of-12 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. Howard is still the starter, but what does that even mean after Cohen’s electric performance on Sunday? Howard didn’t do himself any favors dropping the would-be touchdown pass at the goal line with seconds left in the contest.

Buck Allen (RB/BAL)

(Update) 9/12/17: With Danny Woodhead out a significant amount of time, sources suggest, Allen has some decent appeal.

Kerwynn Williams/Andre Ellington/DJ Foster (RB/AZ)

(Update) – 9/12/17: It looks like most sources are pointing to a 2-4 Week timeframe for DJ to miss, or a 3-4 month timeframe. DJ is getting a second opinion, most likely speaking to the 3-4 month timeframe some fear. Nothing is clear just yet, but none of these runners are worth what Cohen is up above.

Tarik Cohen could be a gem in 2017? :: COHEN

(9/8/17) Tarik Cohen is a beast pound for pound. He is only 5-6, 179 pounds, but he has quicks and cutting ability like faster version of a Darren Sproles. Jordan Howard is the starter, and I am not suggesting a takeover, but I will say that all Howard owners better… Continue Reading

Kareem Hunt :: HUNT

(9/8/17) What a beast Kareem Hunt was in his rookie debut on Thursday night against the Patriots. Hunt rushed 17 times for 148 yards and a touchdown, adding five receptions for 98 yards and two additional touchdowns. Yeah. He was fantastic. Where do you go from here if you are a Hunt owner? First off, he’s Continue Reading

Tom Brady & Rob Gronkowski :: BRADY/GRONK

(9/8/17) Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski had awful fantasy outings in Week 1, but if you watched the game, things started off hot with a Brady to Gronk touchdown strike… it was unfortunately overturned, as the ruling was that the ball hit the ground when Gronk came down in the end zone. Look folks… Continue Reading

Stock Market: Zeke Elliott to play Week 1

Ezekiel Elliott :: ZEKE

(9/6/17) Ezekiel Elliott’s 6-game suspension upheld; However, he will play Week 1? News as of 9/5/17 @9:01PM: Suspended RB Ezekiel Elliott will play Week 1 against the Giants; however, his 6-game ban was upheld by NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson. Since the appeal wasn’t settled before 4 PM ET on Tuesday, Elliott is eligible to hit the field Sunday night. However, a ruling on Elliott’s temporary restraining order is expected to be announced on Friday evening. If it is granted, Elliott could be available all season. This could go so many ways, folks, it’s not even close to over. Keep checking with us in case something changes, but all sources and reports, as of now, are suggesting Zeke plays Week 1. The rest is TBA. Stay tuned.

Jamaal Charles :: JCHAR

(9/5/17) Jamaal Charles looked darn good in the Broncos’ third preseason game, where the runner rushed for 27 yards on four carries, and pulled in 2 passes for 15 yards. That stats aren’t huge number wise, but he looked the part. He was quick, he fit in well into the offense, and he didn’t look slower or banged up on his runs. I do wonder if… Read More

Stock Market: NFL lead investigator recommended no ban for Zeke?

down-stock-market

Ezekiel Elliott :: ZEKE

(9/1/17) *** UPDATE ALERT ***Ezekiel Elliott owners, and prospective owners, got a bit more good news late last night. While this is all still built of news, rumors and much speculation, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Clarence Hill is reportedly suggesting that the NFL lead investigator (Kia Roberts) recommended no suspension for Ezekiel Elliott. Roberts is said by other sources to be the only NFL official who interviewed Elliott’s accuser, and her recommendation left out of the NFL’s report. The NFLPA is reportedly arguing this angle. She was able to testify in the hearing, so the odds of Elliott seeing a reduced suspension, or maybe even an overturned suspension, have just increased. It’s tough to validate all this info, so be very careful how you adjust your rankings, folks, but Read More

Stock Market: Ezekiel Elliott, where to draft?

down-stock-market

Ezekiel Elliott :: ZEKE

(8/18/17) Ezekiel Elliott, who is facing a 6-game suspension, has officially appealed the suspension. His hearing is set for August 29th. Multiple sources, including PFT’s Mike Florio, suggest that because Harold Henderson has been tapped to hear the appeal, Elliott’s six-game suspension is less likely to be overturned, and that a small reduction is more likely than a big reduction. This is all guess work at this point, but the logic is sound. Zeke is a tough player to draft in 2017 redraft formats, as he could miss only 3-4 games, or he could miss the full 6 games… or, he could even see further issues pop up to hurt him, as he does have some lingering worries still circling news wires, some of which appear to be already in the rear view mirror for the NFL (but what if there are more situations and issues?). The bottom line here is this… Read More
