That's exactly what people said.

Whatever, everyone in this thread thinks he should be on a roster and hopes he will get a chance this weekend.


You need to reread the last 3 pages again instead of doubling down on your wrongness

Ok, I guess no one thought he was still available or easy to acquire.

Not even the most recent post!

We arent allowed to hope for injuries, but we can certainly anticipate them.
If you've got the space, Darwin is a hidden flamethrower cache.
I won't be starting Thompson this week, but Mecole Hardman will be in all my lineups. Same principle.

Everyone knows Darwin hasn’t done anything
He’s virtually free
No one is dropping anyone worth anything for him
It’s a low cost wait and see

The question issss....Are you starting MECOLE over Robert Woods, Mike Williams ?? Start 2 of those guys ? :-k

My WRS: OBJ, MIKE WILLIAMS, ROBERT WOODS, MECOLE

12 Team full point ppr / 6 point td's

I own Darwin and I'm not starting him this week, then again everyone said the same about MECOLE and he almost had 2 tds and 135 yards if not for that TD called back!

Damien Williams (knee) was "limping considerably" on Thursday.
Williams has missed back-to-back practices while LeSean McCoy returned on Thursday. Fantasy players should count on Williams being sidelined. Darwin Thompson will pair with Shady against the Ravens. It's possible even Darrel Williams could get some run.

Wish the Darwin price was low, he went for about 20% of FAAB in my league. I didn't go that high, but kind of wish I did.

So, I have to assume at this point Damien will be ruled out - no practice all week, walking with a noticeable limp
McCoy will start 40-50% (less if he looks like he looked last week)
Darwin gets snaps 20-30% (more if he looks like he did in the preseason)
Darrel Williams gets 20-30% plus goal line I'm guessing

Darwin was getting goal line work with the first team in preseason. I wouldn't be surprised if he was in for that. The snap % sounds fair though

I heard a crazy stat the other day on a pod cast... Something like Mahomes hasn't been past the opponents 20 yard line yet this year and passed for a TD. All seven of his TD's have been outside the 20... One rushing TD on the year for the team... Against BLT I'm not sure what kind of goal line work Darwin would in for honestly...

It's been two weeks. The opportunities will be there.

well, we're going to find out.

He's made the end of my bench. The opportunity is there for him to take it.

Agreed. Well worth the FAAB spent! Not starting him, don't need to, but he's got a spot on my bench and this is a fluid situation.

Interestingly, Darrell Williams remains on the wire in both leagues. Watch I bet someone snags him Sunday AM and he goes off...
