Yeah, Jordy isnít going to draw coverage off anyone though. I donít know about Oakland, I kind of think they are going to be a bad team that can score points. Sort of the same vein as Tampa. We wonít find out much tonight other than seeing if they can score on LA. I kind of think the Rams are going to pound them though.

If the Saints D continues to look this bad, the value of Thomas, Brees, and Kamara is going up.

The dope who drafted Bell in my league didn't scoop up Conner as a handcuff and I grabbed him in the draft and played him this week. After watching the Chiefs pitiful defense, Conner looking like an absolute steal. You do you, Le'Veon.

We can start 2 flexes, so I guess I'll be content riding the Conner wave until LeVeon needs the money

And stay away as long as possible LeVeon...
Did he turn it down before or after the Sunday games? He may reconsider if Bell doesn't show soon.

Who are his other WR and RB?

Turned it down on Friday night.

He has Gronk, but that ain't happening. His other RBs are trash (RB4 types) and wouldn't be an upgrade over what I am starting. Other WRs are Cobb (who I irrationally hate for screwing me over multiple times), Fuller, and DeSean Jackson (one week wonder?).

Assuming that Bell sits another week or so and Conner continues to have good games, I could easily see this turning into a timeshare (which Bell would probably be happy with to preserve his health).

If you're good at RB, look at another team. Based on what you have said I don't think he can offer you value for 8 weeks of a RB running behind the Steelers O-line. Fantasy wise over the last 3 years now Deangelo Williams and James Conner have averaged more fantasy points per game than Le'Veon Bell has. Think about that for a second.

I was curious about his other RB/WR not just for who your targets might be but also for his perspective. If he had any solid RB options he might not be interested in downgrading at WR to get Conner. If he only has marginal RBs, he may need to get a deal done somewhere

I do wonder if DJax has more value with Fitzmagic starting.
