    TBF Hyde rushed the ball 23 times... getting RB1 type of volume and now hopefully with Baker in an improved offense... should mean good things ahead... I wouldn't chalk Hyde's performance up to luck at all.

    Yes, Hyde is a decent back and in a decent offense he should be a high end RB2. Just pointing out that TDs are often a product of luck. The reason you draft a back like Hyde is because you expect him to get 7-8 TDs being the primary ball carrier from short distance.

    Drop Marlon Mack for L. Murray now that Cook is having injury problems?

    all indy rb's are mere streamers if even that. If you have cook, murray would be the ideal handcuff as anytime he's out, murray is a viable starter

    I don't have Cook but I don't have a problem dropping Mack at this point... I think L. Murray can be very good in that high powered offense if Cook keeps having problems.

    it seems like cook's absence this week is more precautionary ahead of their big game vs the rams thursday. Murray is in bw the Rb1/rb2 category for sunday based on the volume hes going to get alone

    Yea, I mean, all I'm saying is Cook doesn't seem to be the most sturdy dude so I rostering L. Murray is more worthwhile than Marlon Mack at this point. Even though Mack projected to be the Indy starter coming into the season.

    definitely could be concerns when he's coming off a torn acl. minny didn't give him any work in the preseason. and hamstring injuries can be pretty tricky.

    There's a number of teams where there rb's have little value no matter who is "starting". Indy is one of them

    Ajayi and Sproles out, so Clement is a good pickup if available.

    My Bench only has 6 spots... so gotta make tough decisions:

    RB's are:

    Elliot
    Conner
    Hyde
    Miller
    Barber
    L. Murray

    No room for clement (I don't think he is available anyway)

    Was all in with Golladay at my flex for Sunday night but picked up L. Murray on the ww... just too good of a situation to pass up @Home vs. Buffalo expecting a ton of work... ahhh really wanted to give Kenny G his shot this week.

    ugh. hogans my least favorite of the 3. he's gotten so little targets it's only boom if he gets tds like last week, which is unlikely.

    Ha, I was just thinking about SNF... I think it's going to be a shootout - just go Locket and Cole then if you're feeling them. Nobody can predict the future.. just analyze the situation as best you can and go with your gut.
