I just don’t understand why they won’t mention the actual injury.


smackinov

Bengals probably don't even have doctor's to look at it


brownsug7

LMAO, hey Joe can you drive to the clinic and lmk what's wrong

Mike Brown let him take the 04 Carolla but he has to fill it up

They had to send him to the local urgent care, via public transit, to get checked out by some intern medical student.

He rewatched the intro to Up and is now in shambles


anonbutler

Legit gives me AJ "we will see" Green vibes from last year. Hoping it's another week at max and then they have the bye.


2POTMSON

They haven’t placed him on IR so it’s likely a short term situation. Nothing to be overly concerned with. Misses this week and maybe next week at most.


GoodLowered

That's what I thought when I was holding AJ Green basically all of last year.


dace55

Sure but short-term IR is 3 weeks now


Feels_tripper

last year they didn't have the short term IR


[deleted]

please don’t say that


Omnobo

They also have a bye the week after that in wk9


ptsak007

He is day to day starting today until the end of the year just like aj green

His dance moves weren’t up to snuff and he got SERVED.

ptsak007

He got injured after dancing


XurstyXursday

I trust ESPN will rule him out super duper quick so us IR league Mixon owners can scramble for Gio before our league mates snatch him.


Castleprince

Drop your kicker for him


XurstyXursday

No kicker league


Muff_Stuff15

Your d/st?


XurstyXursday

They moved him Out already luckily. League mates either asleep or don't care.

Hambone721

But I already have Mostert in my IR... :(


Bovine_Joni_Himself

This was a good year to have a couple IR spots.


dasnorte

That was my thinking with my league this year however, with yahoo at least, you can’t put players whose games get cancelled because of covid on IR and can only use IR for actual injuries or if the player themself gets covid.


theChronic222

If you haven't seen yet hes been ruled out on ESPN


Dagglin

Gio sucks and the offensive line sucks. I know he's getting the opportunity but I think this is an instance where that doesn't lead to points


[deleted]

In PPR leagues he’ll do alright.


Expulsure

Do I play Gio Bernard or McKinnon?


anonbutler

Personally feed Gio is a no brainer. So he will have a Mattison week


Mister-Stiglitz

Not last Sunday Mattison week thought...right?


anonbutler

I have scary feeling about it being the same.


[deleted]

Gio actually plays on passing downs though


NotSureIAgree27

Im going Gio.


NZBound11

Similar situation for me. Gio or Antonio Gibson


tokomini

Honestly, until that Dallas defense shows any signs of life, I'd go with Gibson. It's the NFCE so it's always a crapshoot, but I see a scenario in which WFT is up late and Gibson hits 20 carries for the first time. Worth noting that the Bengals are playing Cleveland, and their run defense is actually pretty good (73 yards/game which is 6th best in the league.)


polishpasty

I have to decide Gio vs Gibson this week. The rbbc in Washington scares me. I think Gio gets more touches than Gibson. Something tells me this exact question will come up a lot on the Sunday morning live streams...


Theofeus

As a Gibson owner who watches only moments of WFT games, I always seem to see McKissic in the backfield especially late in games.


bigbird09

I'd say Gio for the garunteed work load. McKinnon could be splitting carries.


MoveAlongNothing2C

Have to play Jet. CMC out, traded for Mixon last week. My David Montgomery / McKinnon stack better pull through with my great 1-5 start


kb24bj3

Dude, EXACT same boat except I’m 2-4 after robbing the Julio owner after his 3 straight bum weeks. Traded him M Sanders for DMont and Julio


Jwsaf

I have to go McKinnon since I couldn't pick up Gio. Anyways, Gio should be the play for you.


dmoney757

I'm going Gio over McKinnon and White


Rufuz42

Ha, I have the same 3 players as well + Gibson and a IR CMC. Def going Gio, can’t decide between the others.


bruhmoment39

Bernard


livsjollyranchers

Jerrick isn't guaranteed the majority of work. So Gio for sure. Tough vs NE anyway.


Ramstetter

Literally same question


szzzn

I feel like a genius. My opponent has Mixon and I snuck in Gio Wednesday at like 2am after waivers cleared. LFG 15 for 45 and 0...sigh


RobbyGronkolicious

I grabbed Gio from just now in case the guy who has Mixon goes looking to replace. He has some other RBs so I’m not totally fuckkng him but sometimes the best offense is a good defense.


teddybearluvsu

I just picked him up because the Number 1 team in my league has Mixon, and doesn't have anyone to play in his place because of Bye weeks.


Roman_nvmerals

Heck yeah. Give it to em.


sean0883

Oof size: Large


[deleted]

if you were me, his backup for Mixon will score 30 while Gio will bust


[deleted]

I looked at this too. I didn't pick Gio purposefully hoping he'd fall for the shiny new toy over his solid backups.


DrSkeeZe

All depends on everyones specific situation. Im playing the Mixon owner and he already has a questionable Hopkins in the line up. And his only depth pieces are a questionable Edelman and Crowder. So i definitely grabbed Gio just to block him.


Tyler1986

Over half my starting lineup is out or questionable


IAmTheWaller67

I feel that. My phone blew the fuck up Wednesday afternoon with Hopkins, Hunt, Edelman, Jackson all getting Qs.


Tyler1986

I have Sanders and Mixon, I picked up Gio and my opponent has Scott who put up better numbers than I expected him to.


argothewise

Gio has a track record of putting up RB2/RB1 numbers without Mixon. He'll do better than people think


Ty4ys78

Especially in ppr


MylesGasCan

He has decent PPR value.


zirtbow

I got Gio after waivers cleared but it was weird in here Wednesday. People were arguing against picking him up since Mixon played last night after a chest injury and lit it up. I didn't see the down side. Pick Gio up Wednesday and hold til Sunday morning just in case. That is if you had the bench spot. I could see people maybe not having it with byes and injury.


JeremyVonSprinkles

Playing the guy who I traded mixon to this week. And picked up gio


Lewsi

Very satisfying


[deleted]

Same here, good stuff. When his Ekeler went down I packaged Mixon and Kelley for his Henry, while Kelley was still worth a damn. Absolute perfect timing.


Purplerodney

Damn, you made out like a bandit with that deal.


tothesource

lol Kelley was never worth that much of a damn. source: Kelley owner.


Maggurt

same lol, 2-4. lets go baby!


mymindpsychee

You expected Mixon, but it was me, GIO


Andoo

Actually, it was the mother, Giovanna Bucciarati!


5kwot

Always has been


Blacramento

Having drafted Mixon in the 1st in all leagues, I'd rather him get healthy and be good ROS than force himself to play, putting up a mediocre game and potentially hurting himself more Hurry up and declare him out Yahoo so I can move him to my ~~bench~~ IR


Saucy_Man11

Just sucks it was against the Browns who just let up 100+ rushing yards and 3+l rushing touchdowns -_-


IkiriInkya

I'm actually thinking of starting gio over james robinson lol. should I even consider it?


LuckECharms

Same boat. Charged D hasn’t let up a RB TD I believe and Robinson is getting less touches. Gio might be our guy here.


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

Did they ever say what’s wrong with him?


WaterIsNotWet19

Sounds like related foot soreness Edited


mtyndall

Not officially, but I think the best guess is a foot sprain. If anything was broken that would’ve come up during last week’s game on the x-ray and he would’ve been ruled out. A sprain wouldn’t have shown up and he could’ve still felt good enough at the time to play


BigDigger-Nick

now to decide between gio and montgomery


Johnbonham1980

Got the same decision to make. What are your thoughts?


BigDigger-Nick

i'll get back to you on this ...


brownsug7

I got gibson to throw in there too and I'm considering it cause of the dallas matchup


redalienguy1101

I’m in the same boat and I think I just like Bernard more, he should get more volume than Gibson and I’m just worried about McKissic continuing to play a huge role in the passing game.


ImpressiveFollowing

I have them both and Drake, Robinson, and Davis. Going to have a real hard time picking starters this week, and of course whoever I pick will be the lowest scorers and cost me the W lol


Thehappycachorro

Same. Let me know what you decide lol


tommy_two_beers

Monty


king_of_not_a_thing

I’m going Monty.


KyWy75

Well now when Bernard scores a TD I won’t be filled with a blinding rage

Platypus-Ninja

Would’ve been nice to know last night so I could’ve played Scott...


usernamechecksout315

Drop Akers for Gio?


anonbutler

I would if you need a win this week. Akers is just a high upside(may be?) handcuff at this time


Xtakovich

Mixon? Mixoff.


AlrightP

It was between Le'Veon, Frank Gore, and Edmonds for my rb2 slot alongside Drake. Picked up Gio because I didn't get Boston Scott in. Must win week. I'm so horny


mike10003

GIO SZN


CommonerChaos

PORN-STACHE SZN


Swichts

That thing is Michael Scott pranking Utica level legit


zc256

Gio or Justin Jackson?


Wbolin9

Figured it out? In the same boat lol


zc256

I think I’m going Gio


Wbolin9

Yeah I may be leaning that way too, but Jackson has the better matchup for sure IMO. He may not receive the total volume though that Gio gets.


JohnnyWarbucks

Tough one. I think Jackson might be the better play, but Gio's for sure going to get the volume. LAC is definitely leaning harder on Jackson than Kelly, but it could turn into a split backfield any given game.


highonats

Same man. Idk, I’m thinking about Gio now...just grabbed him.


FrugalCarlWeathers

Starting Gio over Jacobs. AMA


IMG0NNAGITY0USUCKA

Can I blame you when it inevitably backfires? Thinking of doing the same.


goblintacos

4d chess I'm starting both bruh


truwrxtacy

Don't get cute, start your studs


adam_smiths_burner

Gio or Singletary


notplop

Same here, I’m going with Gio. I’m in PPR though, I’d probably go with Singletary in standard.


T_Funky

Gio or Kelly?


-Principal-Vagina-

Gio


mypostisbad

Same decision here and it's Gio without even a second thought. I love Kelly's matchup, but I've yet to be impressed with Kelley. I'm not talking box scores, he's just looked completely average whenever I've seen him run a play.


wishyouwerebeer

I've had Kelley in but haven't felt great about it (Taylor bye week replacement). Just picked up Gio and will likely start him instead.


throwawayless

I am going with Gio, need to se Kelley perform first


CrouchingPuma

I dropped Kelley for Gio in one league. Kelley has looked horrible the last few games and I expect Jackson to be far better. Kelley can maybe salvage his day with a touchdown but I'm not going to trust a rookie who's looked bad. We've seen Gio be a super sub time and time again over the years.


lent12

Gio over Gibson this week in a PPR? Gotta go with the for sure volume so long as McKissic is kicking around.


[deleted]

Same boat. I feel like it’s a toss up


lent12

Honestly, Cleveland has a good defensive line which may necessitate burrow dumping it wuick to Gio. Plus, Gio has the full workload no matter what thr matchup. I think you have to roll with it. But I'm sure, no matter what decision I make, it will be the wrong one


[deleted]

I'm going Gio over Gibson because of the volume, like you said.


xWaves_

Gio or swift?


sky2k1

I'm 2-4 and picked up Gio on waivers. I don't wish injury on players, but I really needed this.


Ill_WillRx

Joe Burrows throwing 50 times confirmed


D_Rock1119

Gio or James Robinson?


babybonerusa

Struggling with this myself but I'll probably play it safe with JRob


[deleted]

Picked up Gio last night on a whim amidst a drunken fugue. When I read this I had to double check to make sure I actually did it and didn't just think about it. Fuck the Colts D anyway.


[deleted]

[удалено]


cookout404

Same. Have fun starting Brian Hill now. Gotta love it.


Isie1321

Gio, Jackson, Henderson, and Kelley. Pick two


livsjollyranchers

Gio and Jackson. Henderson if Jackson's out.


Substantial-Poetry-1

Gio Bernard or Melvin Gordon sunday?


WookHunter5280

Holy shit. My mom came into my room to bring me a plate of chicken nuggets and I literally screamed at her and hit the plate of chicken nuggets out of her hand. She started yelling and swearing at me and I slammed the door on her. I'm so distressed right now I don't know what to do. I didn't mean to do that to my mom but I'm literally in shock from the injury report this morning. I feel like I'm going to explode. Why the fucking fuck is he out? This can't be happening. I'm having a fucking breakdown. I don't want to believe the league is so corrupt. I want a franchise to believe in. I want Mixon to be healthy and fix this broken Bengals team. I cannot fucking deal with this right now. It wasn't supposed to be like this, I thought he was dancing around in Wednesday practice???? This is so fucked.


bigtuck54

who was the original of this pasta about? I can't remember for the life of me


WookHunter5280

Bernie Sanders


bigtuck54

so much funnier than I was expecting


pumabreath

Gio or Montgomery?


_sherw00d_

I have Gio, Gibson, and Montgomery and need 2 starters. I think Montgomery is a lock.


-Principal-Vagina-

I think its Gibson time vs Dallas. See what drake did to em last week? Teams should run vs them a lot more now that the Dallas offense isn't as potent.


FrugalCarlWeathers

Gio and monty


NiteSwept

very happy I grabbed Gio off waivers this morning


Shamou-

That's so funny, I picked up Bernard to just mess with my opponent. Welcome to my RB1 slot Bernard (was going to stack Jackson + Kelley against Jacksonville with Taylor & Sanders Out)


QuestFor6ix

Gio over McKinnon?


High-qualitee

Yes.


Shamjam08

Wow, should have plugged in Scott yesterday 🤦‍♂️. Picked up Gio but not super confident. Might have to slot Brandin Cooks or Diontae Johnson in the flex (standard)


njsz

have mixon, MT, ekeler, and mostert....fuck my life right??


sassafrasgloves

Bernard or Diontae in my flex .5 ppr?


Slapdash13

I dropped Mattison for Gio going against the Mixon owner. This szn is crazy.


goateguy

Im wishing he had said that BEFORE last nights game. I could have used Scotts points in my starting lineup.


HelpMePlease420-69

Traded Carson for MT this week and now this. I'm broke, I'm a dead man!


brazzersjanitor

My opponent has Mixon starting. I absolutely pick up Gio and don’t even play him right? He can’t start over anyone on my team. Does anyone know how long you have to roster a player for them to be dropped to go back on waivers and not free agency? I’m gonna need a kicker since I just screwed my opponent. Also, they were benching Higgins for Mixon. Should I have just let them start Gio over Higgins?


newbike07

Yes pick up Gio ASAP


CandidToast

Absolutely


mike10003

Yup


flyalpha56

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAH Im 1-5 and jsut saw this now so someone already grabbed GIO.... I already had an open RB spot for this week now I have 2 open RB spots.... Im about to quit and Im the commissioner lol.. Fuck fantasy football Im done.

fender35303

Gio over Josh Jacobs this week??


FrugalCarlWeathers

I'm doing it if the entire offensive line is indeed out.


CommonerChaos

Mixon owner that picked up Gio in anticipation. Unleash the stash!


YourBurningPizza

Gio over Drake and Jackson?


livsjollyranchers

I'd prefer Drake, then Gio.


Ap125679

Gio, JRob, or Kenyan Drake. Who do I start?


notplop

Shiiiiit. Now I have to choose between White, Gio, or Singletary. Almost want to play White just because he'll guarantee me 10 PPR points lol.


mypostisbad

Watch as everyone picks up Gio, only for Perine to go mental on Sunday.


negan90

Legit considering Gio over Jacobs, no raiders O line and that bucks run D has me spooked
