FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT BEAST
BEAST DOME LOVE STORY, D’ANDRE, SAY YES!
BEAST DOME NATION.
It has been a very long time since I was flat out wrong in a prediction. Just flat out, worst call of all-time, what was I thinking. This preseason there was no Fantasy Sports site that was higher on D’Andre Swift than BEAST DOME. I have Swift as my #10 RB in my Fantasy Rankings and he was a vital part of the Draft Guide as he was falling all the way to the 5th/6th/7th Round of Fantasy Football Drafts in August/September. The Sheep were hyping up Gainwell, and I knew it was all nonsense to hype up the most average RB of all-time (Gainwell). If Gainwell was on the Raiders last year, he would be out of the NFL this year.
On Sunday Afternoon as I was wrapping up the morning games, my phone buzzes. I look at the notification. REMOVE RASHAAD PENNY FROM YOUR LINEUPS HE IS NOT-ACTIVE. From there, I went crazy on D’Andre Swift in DFS, as well as advising all clients to start the BEAST. The Eagles game started, and Swift barely played on the first drive. Eagles looked pretty bad. Second drive, barely played, Eagles looked pretty bad. Gainwell was the lead toucher on an offense that really was doing nothing. Eagles were easily one of the most disappointing teams on Sunday despite winning, but it really had nothing to do with their offense. As you all know, Swift 2 touches, Gainwell 18.
Nothing but disappointment, anger at the coaches for being autistic, and confusion about how the coaches could be so autistic. Why would the Eagles roll out Gainwell and look like the most average team in the NFL? No explosion, might as well have been the Denver Broncos offense. Just when it seemed like D’Andre Swift was going to end up as a bad call I made this preseason, and the only thing I could tell my clients is to hold on and wait for the Eagles to realize what they have in Swift. The faith train hit BEAST DOME. Gainwell missed practice Monday/Tuesday and on Wednesday, they ruled him out.
Rashaad Penny is active, but it is now or never for D’Andre Swift and all of BEAST DOME. We either have ourselves a guy who should play like a RB1, or a guy who is basically Waiver Wire material, but too good to drop.
The Vikings D looks strong with Brian Flores as the DC. While the Vikings may have lost a bit in talent this offseason, they are making it up in scheme. However with that being said, if the Eagles play Swift like they should, then this will open up the Eagles offense too much for the Vikings D to know what to do. Hurts has plenty of weapons and he should be able to find them all. Devonta/AJ will be unguardable, and Dallas G is promised touches as well after getting zero looks last game.
Death, Taxes, Kirk Cousins not performing well on the road on Primetime TV. These three things are guaranteed in life. Luckily for Kirk, the Eagles secondary is banged up heading into this one. However Darius Slay will still be on Justin Jefferson creating a great Must-See TV matchup. Running the ball with Mattison will not be effective, so it will be the Kirk Cousins Air Show. Plenty of weapons and it is possible he does find the mismatches. However the big key is, can this Vikings O-Line win the battle to protect Kirk? The answer, probably not.
Eagles should be able to win this game at home, the Eagles offense should be able to find themselves and swagger at home. D’Andre should do enough damage to prove that he is the RB the Eagles need to count on for the entire season. Eagles D-Line should make a lot of noise and disrupt the Vikings offense.
THIS IS A BEAST DOME LOVE STORY.
D’ANDRE, SAY, YES!
