Quick Hits

In a weekend where a few RB's exploded, this backfield got a lot more complicated.



Devonta Freeman - This was my biggest surprise of the week after calling him out as a dud against the Cowboys #1 ranked run defense. Three TD's boost your stock quickly. Tevin Coleman is most certainly the future runner in this backfield for the long term. However, Freeman's showing this week let the league know he isn't just a backup. This seems like it will be a pretty even timeshare once Coleman returns from his rib injury.

Karlos Williams - The Bills backup is looking more like a starter than a backup so far. The Bills have a run heavy offense and LeSean McCoy might be sitting out a few weeks until his hamstring is fully healthy. Time to plant a flag on Williams as his stock is going up quickly.

Amari Cooper - We all knew he was going to be good, but he has been better than expected so far. Going up against the Bengals, Ravens, and the Browns' Joe Haden, Cooper has not been slowed much. Just imagine what his stat line will look like against softer pass defenses. 31 targets in 3 weeks make it pretty clear who Derek Carr looks to as his go to guy. He looks like he could be a back end WR 1 by the end of the year.

Jets Offense - I'm not sure if anyone noticed, but Ryan Fitzpatrick threw the ball 58 times this weekend. Nobody with a QB named Ryan Fitzpatrick plans to throw this much, so if you are a Bilal Powell or Chris Ivory owner shake this week off. Ivory plans to play next week as well.
