Steve Slaton intrigues me

Quick post here if you’re drafting this weekend, I was very impressed with Steve Slaton last night. He’s a smaller back, but he’s not tiny, and he surprised me how he played bigger than he is and does seem to handle the physical aspect of the game. Greg Cosell said this to me last night and I totally saw it this weekend. Note he was added to our players to target list last week.
I have zero faith in Ahman Green and Chris Brown, they are incredible injury risks. Chris Taylor is nothing special, and neither is Darius Walker. Slaton is young, fresh, and he brings some juice to their offense. That offense could be very good.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease don’t accuse me of creating hype. Please don’t expect the next great fantasy sleeper. Please don’t expect him to go off Week One. Please don’t get upset if he doesn’t do much.

These are the facts; Slaton looks good and the other backs are aged, injury-prone, or nothing special. I would not be surprised at all if he was a key player in their backfield.

Ok, the season needs to start because I think I’m on edge here a little bit…

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
