Is Justin Jackson worth a flier at all? Over the likes of Clement, who seemed to be the COP back yesterday?

the guy who made a strong run to my points championship, had gordon go down, he actually took the lead, and i had to scramble with adams on snf. Had he stayed in he would have won it easily... NO shame in the luck there :) But really hurts his playoff run... But losing aj green, and now losing greens' qb definitely hurts me too.

Adams and Edwards is my starting backfield, now that Gordon is out.

I didn't even know who they were 5 weeks ago!

Neither were drafted in my dynasty league.

what about picking up blount vs the rams sieve of a run defense,looking unlikely for kjohson to play and blount scored 2 tds last wk and avg 4.6 or 4.7 a carry

Blount is taken in my league and I was beat out for Jackson on waivers. I gotta rely on Jordan Howard. :oops:

That is exactly what I did. I picked up Jackson last week and Blount this week. Need to see something workload wise for Jackson before I plug him in.

Rollin' the Blount this week , unless the Gus Bus needs a mechanic, then MAYBE Collins. other than tjat my options are Jalen Richard...lol

I played a combo of Gordon, Ekeler, Cohen last week. That worked out well. I picked up Jackson, thinking of rolling Ekeler, Jackson along with Kareem Hunt. I may substitute Cohen for Jackson, what do you guys think?

You need to roll with Cohen who typically produces and does it well. We have no idea what to expect out of Jackson yet. When Gordon was out for the London game, Ekeler handled mostly all of the backfield work.

Not to mention, Cohen is up against a Giants run defense who has been straight awful since trading away Snacks Harrison. For my own benefit, I hope Howard has a great game but I'm not confident one bit about that.

Thanks, I am leaning to keeping Cohen in over Jackson.

I'm guessing they'll try to mix in the other guy but it's going to be Rivers dropping back 40+ times here.
