Anybody Picking Up Moats?
 
As a Slaton owner I think I'm going to have to hedge my bets by picking up Moats.

The ironic thing is that the best thing for the Texans might be having them share the role which could be a fantasy nightmare. I'm a Texans fan first and foremost so I will root for both these guys no matter what. Maybe best case scenario happens and they both become viable starters even while splitting carries.

Anybody else in the same situation?

I'd go with Tomlinson and Moats. The Panthers are too unpredictable. You never know who's gonna get the ball there.

I picked up Moats too. I'm also a Slaton owner. I'm gonna go with common sense and play Moats.

I'm starting to think that Kubiak is the new Mike Shanahan for fantasy owners.

I dropped OD to pick up Moats moreso that no one else can pick him up.

Douchey but whatever, I need him to make up for my other RB's anyway.

I picked up Moats but still have Slaton. Right now, I plan on starting Slaton this weekend. I also have Chris Johnson in my backfield.

I still haven't decided who I am going to start.

Slaton went for 250 yards and 3 TD's against the Colts last season. 150 yards and 1 TD came the week after he was benched vs Baltimore (although that was a totally different situation). He then ran for 100+ in 4 out of the next 5 games.

I'll probably struggle with this decision right up until noon on Sunday but I think I'll probably go with Slaton, at least for this week. I see Kubiak giving Steve every opportunity to redeem himself and I'm hoping he takes advantage.

I tried to get Moats but he went on the waiver wire before my pick. I would probably go Slaton for the start in your case.

Who would you start at TE, Dreessen or Watson. I would have to drop Dreeseen for Watson, I picked him up on the waiver wire when OD went down, OD was the only TE I had on my team.

In a standard scoring league (10yd=1point, TD=6) I would go with Dreessen. If watson doesn't score a TD, he is basically worthless.

I got him and I'm gonna play him. My first 2 round picks were Steve Slaton and Lendale White. It's been downhill ever since.

There's no way that Moats doesn't get the majority of the carries after that performance last week.

I didn't get him in either league and I think it will be fools gold truthfully. Not because he can't play but because Kubes is from the Rat Shanahan line of playing multiple backs and now that he said he has 3 in the mix I expect all 3 to get used. I think withing 2 games Slaton starts again and gets alot of carries. JMO

Williams has got me double digit points in all but 2 weeks this year. He has only had 20+ game however, but he is still a pretty reliable fantasy back.

I picked up Moats this week and will start him in the W/R flex spot this week. All of my backups are on byes and so is Adrian Peterson. Literally, ALL of my backups are on it. That includes Chester Taylor, Justin Fargas, and Jamal Lewis.:gun:

So i'm rocking the Addai/Sproles/and Moats combo this week:gun:


this is in one of the TexansTalk leagues in which i'm losing ground really fast too. I had first place now i'm down to third.
