David Johnson leads fantasy football’s panic
If slow starts are cause for concern in the real NFL world, they are even more anxiety inducing in fantasy football, where teams usually get canada goose outlet online uk just 12 to 14 weeks to win enough games to reach the playoffs. Those feelings of consternation are only heightened when the poor numbers are being posted by high draft picks, players expected to be the pillars canada goose outlet price of fantasy success.
Canada Goose sale With that in mind, let’s look at several players, all of whom were drafted around the fourth round or higher, who may well be inspiring outright panic in their owners. Canada Goose sale
Canada Goose online David Johnson, RB, CardinalsOverall average canada goose parka outlet draft position: 3rdPositional rankthrough Week 2: 26th Canada Goose online
It’s canada goose outlet toronto been a rough start in general for RBs named Johnson Kerryon (31st) and Duke (58th!) haven’t exactly lit the world on fire, either but the would be stud from Arizona is without a doubt the most vexing commodity in official canada goose outlet Fantasyville these days. Last seen dominating through land, air and in the end zone in 2016 (leaving aside a 2017 season that ended abruptly in his first game), Johnson has accounted for just 85 yards on 22 carries and 33 yards on six receptions, with one touchdown.
At least as troubling as his overall stats is his usage thus far by first year Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. As noted by my colleague Neil Greenberg who went so far as to advise benching Johnson this week against the Bears the RB’s share of the touches in Arizona’s offense has dropped from 48 percent in 2016 to 42 this season, and his snaps per game have canada goose outlet in toronto plummeted from 60 to just 36. All this has occurred in the context of a Cardinals offense that has been an absolute train wreck canada goose outlet in montreal overall, canada goose parka outlet uk posting an atrociously low 175 total yards per game (by comparison, the woeful Bills are next lowest at 223).
Canada Goose Jackets The only good news for Johnson owners is that Arizona’s attack has been so terrible, it really does have nowhere to go but up. Plus, there’s always the hope that rookie QB Josh Rosen, waiting in the wings as Sam Bradford has somehow yet toget injured, can eventually provide a spark. Canada Goose Jackets
Canada Goose Outlet Oh, and Wilks acknowledged Monday that he and McCoy need to get Johnson “out in space” more, promising to have him run pass routes from the slot. That sounds promising, but at the moment it’s just talk, and not nearly enough to bring Johnson owners off the ledge. Canada Goose Outlet
canada goose LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills ADP: 26 Positional Rank: 39 canada goose
canada goose deals Where to begin with McCoy, previously presumed to be https://www.pick-canadagoose.com the only enticing fantasy asset associated with the aforementioned woeful Bills? He has 89 total canada goose vest outlet yards, five receptions, no touchdowns and a painful rib injury he’ll reportedly try to play through canada goose outlet factory in Week 3. It’s worth noting that Buffalo’s third game involves a trip canada goose outlet online store to Minnesota, which canada goose factory outlet hardly seems like the place for QB Josh Allen to figure out how to play football at an NFL level. canada goose deals[Week 3 start/sit advice]
canada goose coats on sale And that’s all before mentioning McCoy’s ongoing legal issues, which have taken a couple of recent turns that can’t be described as “for the better,” as far as he’s concerned. Drafted as an RB2, Shady is essentially un startable this week, with an outlook that seems to offer a canada goose outlet washington dc greater likelihood of him being hurt, suspended or trapped in a league worst offense than of him regaining his past effectiveness. canada goose coats on sale
canada goose coats Royce Freeman, RB, Broncos ADP: 39 Positional Rank: 36 canada goose coats
canada goose clearance If only his main obstacle to success was relegating Devontae canada goose jacket outlet toronto Booker to a lesser role. Thought to be the case in the preseason, that has happened, but lo and behold, Freeman himself canada goose sale uk has been shunted aside to an unexpected degree by Phillip Lindsay. The first undrafted free agent to gain at least canada goose jacket outlet sale 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first two NFL games, Lindsay has burst onto the scene and ranks 13th in fantasy scoring among RBs. canada goose clearance
canada goose store Freeman, meanwhile, hasn’t exactly been terrible, but he’s been a non factor thus far in the passing game, and his owners’ dreams of a bellcow back appear likely to go unfulfilled. It’s possibly Lindsay is just having a hot start that will later prove to have been an canada goose jacket outlet uk aberration, but it’s also possible Freeman is limited to a Derrick Henry like role. canada goose store
canadian goose jacket Derrick Henry, RB, Titans ADP: 40 Positional Rank: 55 canadian goose jacket
canada goose clearance sale How’s that for a segue? Yes, the role canada goose outlet store montreal for Henry canada goose coats uk looks like a big lug who can canada goose outlet vip run on first and second down, and if/when his team gets to the goal line, but who is otherwise useless on passing downs and/or when his team is playing from behind. canada goose clearance sale[Week 3 player rankings: Ryan Fitzpatrick and Patrick Mahomes lead the way]
buy canada goose jacket Henry is averaging 2.9 yards on 28 carries, with one touchdown and one reception for five yards, as teammate Dion Lewis has looked much more like the back to own in Tennessee. Henry’s situation wouldn’t seem so dire if the Titans gave evidence of being a team likely to take leads into second halves, making use of Henry’s skill set, but that sadly does not seem to be the case. buy canada goose jacket
cheap Canada Goose Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks ADP: 52 Positional Rank: 16 cheap Canada Goose
Given Seattle’s weakened receiving corps in the absence of Doug Baldwin and the departures of Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson, Wilson’s passing numbers 524 yards on a59.4 completion percentage, with five touchdowns and three interceptions don’t seem bad at all, especially considering he just had to take on Khalil Mack’s Bears in Chicago. Heck, Wilson has even managed to make a thing out of Will Dissly, for Pete Carroll’s sake.
buy canada goose jacket cheap The problem is that Wilson has not been canada goose outlet doing his usual amount of rushing, accounting for just 22 yards on five carries thus far. A huge part of Wilson’s attractiveness in fantasy has been his ability to pick up major yardage on the ground, but if that’s not going to be there, or at least not nearly as much, owners certainly can’t count on him picking up the slack by strafing defenses with the Will Disslys of the world buy canada goose jacket cheap.
