Week 12 Rapid Reaction + Melvin Gordon's Injury Fallout (Ep. 296)

We're here to put each game under the microscope and share our biggest fantasy takeaways from Week 12's matchups. Nick Chubb (3:02) and the Cleveland Browns appear to have a bright future ahead, Amari Cooper (16:27) was definitively the standout player on Thanksgiving, and Adam Humphries (26:43) strongly deserves your attention. How should we view Doug Baldwin (46:54) and Tyler Lockett moving forward though, how much time could Melvin Gordon (56:08) miss and who would benefit the most from his absence, and is it time to drop our optimism regarding Courtland Sutton (1:01:49)?

Do they read the comments? I havd a question for the podcast:

A po contender has Melvin Gordon. And I have a spare RB to trade and WR need. His RB need is a bit worse than my WR need. Would you trade a bench RB (my 4th best RB) to get his no2 WR? O would make his team way better but also improve mine.
Would you do that or how would you decide which trade is acceptable or not regarding that. I don't want to make his team better but I also want to have the best lineup possible at my side

They got to force-feed Amari pooper I've never been a fan and Jenny Jones is definitely not going to waste all that so they're going to make sure he signs Jerry Jones I know but I like calling him a Jenny Jones

I fully expected A Cooper to be better with Dak (like it or not, Dak is a superior passer to Carr), but I don't think one big game validates all of Mike's glorification of Cooper. He has had big games before and they have been anomalies. I mean, Bishop Sankey had a 2-TD game as well but I don't think that means he was worth a 1st round pick either.

How dare a person accept another job after they are fired from their previous job! What does Mike think Hue was supposed to do? Be out of work for the rest of his life?
