Smitty’s Take: The Jaguars should have Leonard Fournette (hamstring, questionable) back in Week 3 against the Titans. He is tagged questionable, but as of this post, he’s fully expected to start Week 3. He faces a poor Titans’ rushing defense, so he should be in for a big day. The guy is the only BUST prediction on the Bold Predictions List this year, as every other prediction is a ‘good’ one. I just doubt his ability to stay healthy, ESPECIALLY at his lesser weight (Something most all other sources considered a good thing). He is an aggressive rusher, an extremely aggressive rusher, and his injury history is real. He has always struggled to stay healthy, and even though I love his production when on the field, and even though I call him a RB1 per start, he has so much risk it isn’t worth the cost. So, it’s my advice to sell-high if the guy bounces back big in Week 3 against the Titans. Great buy-low candidates will be determined after Week 3, as any struggling studs will be solid buy-low targets… current examples this week would have been Ezekiel Elliott, David Johnson and Kareem Hunt.
Hey, all. I did this quick Live Stream on YouTube and wanted to share it with you all. It’s on why Zeke Elliott is a buy-low player worth taking a risk on right now. Whether it’s through buying-low via trade, or drafting-low in a draft, get him. Here is why:

|1.03||Ezekiel Elliott||RB||DAL||As said with LBell, if I had the 1.01 in let's say three drafts, I would grab Zeke with one of those 1.01 selections. I wouldn't put all my eggs in one basket, but in one league I would absolutely take the chance. That gives you a feel for the mix of risk and reward that comes along with him in 2018.|
