I agree Carson is a plug until Rawls gets back. Unless of course rawls gets hurt again.

Unless he starts getting snaps at WR or in a 2 man backfield with Howard, I don't see how he's going to be valuable enough to start regularly. He's not going to get many red-zone snaps, so his TDs will all need to be long scores. He's also likely to get no where near as many touches as he got week 1 (he played 28 snaps and got the ball 17 times; of the 23 passing plays, he was the target 12 times, that is not sustainable).

His upside (absent being able to take time from Howard) seems like Sproles-lite. Worth rostering for sure, but nothing to go crazy for.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Debating using my #1 WW pick on Cohen in a 12 team PPR superflex. There's no QB's of value, I own Kupp, Golladay is owned, and I don't think DJ's handcuffs are worth it. I'm either going Cohen or saving it for next week.

Should I pull trigger? When I watched his highlights I may as well have been watching Sproles imo.

I think it should clearly be Rawls' job but I don't trust anything going on in that backfield.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

50% of budget on Cohen in week 1 seems extreme. You essentially give up any shot at a player better than him.

He's one of the better options this week for sure. You're also a Bears guy so factor in the bias. I wouldn't dump a huge portion of my budget on him.

Ah fair enough, I just over-reacted since this was the WW thread.

Honestly I'd rather own Tevin, though I'd guess the most likely outcome for both Tevin and Cohen is something like 850 yards and 6 TDs. Cohen likely has the higher floor, Tevin the higher ceiling. So if I'm hurting at RB I'd prefer Cohen, but yea I think you're right to peg Cohen's value as similar to Tevin.

Thinking of going 16% of my budget on Cohen, not sure if that will get him as this is a fairly deep league. 12 teams, 0.5 PPR, 2RB and 2 flex spots my RBs are Hunt, Powell and Riddick on the bench/flex. Thoughts

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

I'd say u could most definitely use another back and this guy could be a good option. I think Kyerwinn Willaims should be getting a lot of touches at least in the upcoming weeks, so he may be worth a bid to. DJ out up to 12 weeks is the most recent news so i think K Williams is a high priority WW this week. He and Cohen leading the charge imo

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

12 team league (4 make PO), 1 QB (TD = 4), 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, no flex, non-PPR

I have Stafford & Palmer. Should I drop Palmer for either Smith or Bradford? Not sure if he's over the hill or just had bad game, but they should be passing a lot now without DJ.

My WRs are T. Hill, Diggs, Parker, Watkins, and Garcon. Should I try for Golladay and drop/trade either Garcon or Fleener (backup to Eifert) or just stand pat there?

My RBs are McCoy, Murray, Gurley, and Anderson. Can trade Murray for Amari Cooper & David Johnson. Should I do it?

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Corey Davis is owned in under 50% of Yahoo leagues. 10 targets in week 1, and that was after missing basically all training camp and playing fewer snaps than either Decker or Mathews. He has the talent and Mariota seems to like throwing to him.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

I think Kevin White going down makes Cohen's value go way up, especially in PPR.
I think Kerwynn Williams will cost more of the FAAB, but will not be worth as much.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

So I'm in a 12 man league with 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1FLEX(RB/WR/TE) 1TE, Def and K. NON-PPR. Is Cohen worth picking up? My RB situation is the worst of my roster. Here is my team

QB- Winston, Wentz
RB- Bell, Jstew, Duke Johnson, Rex Burk, Jamaal Williams, James Conner
WR- Cooper, Mike Thomas, Tyrell Williams, Rishard Matthews, Shepard, Golladay
TE- Rudolph

I'm thinking of dropping Burkhead for Cohen. Its an auction league btw, so we start with $200 for waivers, have $160 left. Highest bid picks up player. Cohen, Kerwynn Williams, and Javorius Allen are all available. Whats my move?

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Cohen seems like the real deal especially after watching his highlights from that game. My only question is how effective can an offense be with no real deep passing attack? Seems like teams would start coming in and playing a tight defense to focus on Howard/Cohen.

But I'm still going to try for him with my #3 WW.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

browsing around, Cohen is for sure the biggest target, seems to be a lot of optimism there.
J Allen seems to be the guy next in line, especially if u favor RB over wr, seems like Allen is a runner though and not a catcher.

K williams
C Carson
Gio Bernard

those are my waiver priorities this week, should i be favoring Gio more?

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

How much is anyone spending on Cohen in a FAAB league? It's the first time I am doing FAAB. I have a $100 budget in a dynasty .5ppr league. This is our first year, and I changed my bid from $3-$15- now $44.
Am I thinking the wrong way in bidding high and decreasing my bid volume? Or is this too much?

I currently have Gurley, Martin, Perkins, j. williams, henderson, conner as my RBS. I just traded CJ anderson for golden tate.

the lineup formation is:
QB
RB
WR
WR
W/R
W/R/T
W/T
IDP
IDP
15 bench.


thanks!
