Howard for Freeman?

Recommended Posts

I would get Freeman. Don't have great RB depth but the upside seems nice though risky. Thoughts?

I don't think that I would.  Coleman will always cut into Freeman's goal line chances.  I don't think Howard loses much to Cohen, even on third down as much as he used to.

Even with that, if you look at Freeman's and Howard's numbers in past seasons they both have equal total ypg, but Freeman scores way more TDs than Howard because the ATL offense is just way better.

 

The catch with Freeman (lately) is that he's often injured so I'd rather have a reliable Howard.

Serious question. Why does everyone love Howard? He's done nothing but everyone treats him as an un tradeable commodity. To me he's a mid level flex option.

Huh? 

 

2016: 1,600 yards from scrimmage and 7 TDs

2017: 1,200 yard from scrimmage and  9 TDs

 

Reliable RBs are hard to come by in fantasy. He's clearly a RB2 going into his prime years.

This year, 2018.

Because he's an established RB. He has a history to support his worth. That's why DJ is still viewed as valuable. A number of players have slow starts.

That's why I'm thinking Freeman for the higher upside might be better. I can play a guy like Lindsay in the meantime who likely won't do much worse than Howard

I'm sure/hope Howard figures it out. He's killing me in the flex. I'm moving Aghalor in the flex this week

Howard

Game 1: 14 carries, 35 yards----3, receptions, 33 yards

Game 2: 15 carries, 85 yards ----5, receptions, 25 yards. 

 

The first game was subpar. The second game was solid. I think he's fine. I might even try to buy low on him.

I am doing the same.  He has a plus matchup this week.  If he struggles this week then it's a different story.  The fact that he is being used in the passing game is a bonus

Its definitely a good time to buy. I'm trying to get DJ in a few leagues as well.

Howard is solid, he may not get you a TD every week but he generally don't lay eggs either. I look for him to have a good game this weekend. I don't trust Freeman at all, Coleman leeches from his stats plus injury bug has a taste for him.
