  • 3 carries gave him 17 total touches in this one

  • Snap share = McKissic 83% / Gibson 46% / Barber 2%

  • 16 carries, but only 41 yards (2.56 per)

  • 4 receptions on 4 targets (20 total touches)

  • If David Johnson (concussion) were to miss time, Duke will be a low end RB2 play with close to 20 touches. This seems likely for week 10.

  • FAAB $4-$5


6) Kalen Ballage (1% owned)

JaMycal Hasty (52% owned)

  • This may be my final Hasty pun of the year, but once again I can say we were a bit hasty when we told you to add JaMycal

  • He is not involved enough to remain on rosters as McKinnon was used over him this week in what should have been his break out game

  • Mostert due back soon. Time has run out for Mr. Hasty


Adrian Peterson (53% owned)
