He's also misreading the amount of leverage he has. Last year, Connor was unproven and looked shaky in the preseason. This year, he's trimmed down and graded out as the #1 runningback in Pro Football Focus' evaluations of the preseason.

Last year I don't think the Steelers were comfortable going into the season without Bell. This year I think they've got a lot more confidence in their ability to replace about 80% of what Bell brings.

Nah he is being smart.  The Steelers will give him 500 touches this year if they can then cut him without him ever getting the big contract.   The Steelers have been ruthless in the past especially with running backs.   If he is smart he will not play until November then he can be a free agent next year and sign a good contract and get paid.  A running back only has so many carries in them.  I wouldn't waste anymore on the Steelers.  As they say when they cut you, "it's just business".

Definitely a viable angle on things. He's gotta be looking at the long term deals guys like David Johnson and Tod Gurley have secured and wondering why he isn't getting that sort of security.

$14.5M for this year would have been great money, but it also comes with the catch that if he gets hurt his career could be over. As you say, Steelers know this is his last year there and they'd run him into the ground. People forget these things. Bell isn't just being flaky/greedy. He's probably doing the math and deciding it's worth it to give up $9M or so now to ensure he doesn't get hurt and gets a better, long term, contract from somebody next year.

I can’t believe I’m starting Andy freakin Dalton over Andrew Luck! 

Actually yes I can. I think the Bungles offense will be on super cruise this year with their weapons.

I have the Cousins/Diggs connection in both my leagues that I'm in this year.

That TD got me quadruple points. :)

Got the win this week, have a decent chance of being the high scoring team for the week and, so far, everyone's come out of the week healthy. Fingers crossed with Amari tonight.

Can't ask for more than that.

I was pissed when Rogers went down.  But then he came back and blew up the bears.

Smoked - unless Kupp gets 30 tonight and Zurlein breaks his leg. Still, not disastrous despite the freaking titans (started mariota and henry).

Well the auto draft picked two players for me that won't play this season.  So even though I should still be able to beat a dolt like you, winning the league might be a challenge.

So...  Week 1...  I outscore everyone...  Do you think this was by accident?

No bluetools...  It wasn't...   This is tangible evidence my football acumen is superior.

You handle life like you handled the draft...  a no show...  with lame excuses...  

:Clapping:

I have officially beat the smack right out of you...   LOL Where is your HA HA HA now?  bluetools...  it's just a game...   and this is just smack...

It's early in the season...   Isiah Crowell will not have another game like that...  LOL!  You may be the only person in the entire fantasy football world that gave him the starting nod.  

Now go second guess you joining a fantasy league where you will have to face me head to head...  and think about the edge that gives me...  IF I win...  BWAAAHAAAHAAAHAAAHAHHHHHHAHHHAHHHAA

Spent the morning fishing and now I am going to take a nap.

Double dipping by starting Cousins and Diggs together again this week has worked out nicely.
