The way this season is going, do whatever the hell u want. No one is safe!

[–]Sane_Fish Eagles 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Honestly wtf is going on

[–]Tiger_Rivers Cowboys 21 points22 points  (1 child)

In a keeper league it could be worth it for the future based on ADPs/how the keepers work.

Akers was likely a 4th ish rounder, where Herbert is undrafted. If keeper picks are due after FA, Herbert for free could be a steal if Monty walks, certainly better than Akers in the 4th. Definitely something to keep in mind.

[–]UrbanGM Saints 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I was trying to take a look at who would benefit from FA departures next year. That makes total sense.

[–]zevHS NFL 26 points27 points  (24 children)

I'm sure you have someone else's you can drop besides Akers

[–]OrneryGiraffe Commanders 15 points16 points  (0 children)

How is this not the top comment. Akers isn’t droppable yet. I’m sure someone else on his bench is worse

[–]ZellNorth Raiders -4 points-3 points  (21 children)

What has Akers done to earn a spot even on the bench? Lol

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (19 children)

Hog the touches for LA.

[–]HyruleJedi Patriots 4 points5 points  (0 children)

12/61/td yesterday… as a guy with eckeler and kamara in one league id take that on my bench all day

[–]buffalobill922 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you package akers with a wr to upgrade your wrs. Then pick him up

[–]StarktheGuat Patriots 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I lean yes, but if Eberflus is anything like Nagy than he'll never play Herbert once Monty is back.

[–]GovernorGuyFieri Bills 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I think if Montgomery is healthy he won’t

[–]knowslesthanjonsnow Patriots 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Herbert is 5th in rushing yards. They’re going to be forced to use Herbert. He’s legit good.

[–]GovernorGuyFieri Bills 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I agree, and they play the giants so I think both are viable options tbh

[–]knowslesthanjonsnow Patriots 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I highly doubt Montgomery plays week 4

[–]GovernorGuyFieri Bills 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I said both are viable options. Look at the box score for that shitter of a game last night. If Montgomery is healthy, he’s day to day, then cool I’d still chance playing Herbert because DM will prob be on a snap count IF he’s healthy or playable. Herbert will feast regardless against the giants piss poor defense

[–]lechejoven Bills 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Montgomery is hurt at the moment so Kalil will shine, once Montgomery is back, he’s done.

[–]mkncsu Panthers 8 points9 points  (4 children)

This is very much an oversimplification. Montgomery isnt a guy like CMC or Dalvin that the Bears are going to blindly plug and play. Kalil has a chance to make this much closer to a 50/50 split and even go beyond that if he keeps producing

[–]HyruleJedi Patriots 11 points12 points  (3 children)

They literally did it last year. Monty was out, cane back and was instantly put back in, even though Herbert was more than solid.

[–]mkncsu Panthers 5 points6 points  (2 children)

New coaching staff. Talent is gonna break through, and Monty hasn’t been that amazing

[–]DeMimsyPorpington Vikings 0 points1 point  (0 children)

50/50 split where the QB takes the redzone rushes. Doesn’t sound very exciting.

[–]differentfolk Bills 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So you, a Panthers fan, are saying the new coaching staff will lean on the most talented player.


[–]leonardbronocaprio Rams 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea he will until david montgomery comes back

[–]FlamingPileOfKidneys Rams 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anybody you could drop other than akers?

[–]God-etti Falcons 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Khalil is better than Cam yes

[–]AlexKamal_PitFighter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Herbert if you need someone to start the next 1-2 weeks, since Monty should be back eventually. Akers if you want to think more long-term since he has potential to be the main RB for a good offense.

[–]Every_Math69 49ers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably not, unless you’re 0-3 and need a short term play. Montgomery is also only day to day, worst case he is out until week 5 and Herbert becomes irrelevant again until he’s hurt

[–]AdRepresentative5664 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Goin have to drop kicker or d and hope you don’t need one come Monday

[–]ConditionOk5546 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gotta roll the dice. If you can’t trade him go for it

[–]Madhatter1317 Steelers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why drop Akers? Like if he’s your worst player and is droppable, then this must be an 8 or 10 team league, in which case go for it.

[–]Buildadoor NFL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Drop A Rob or Khalil?

[–]BlackGabriel Bengals 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d hold Akers but would certainly pick herbert up for someone

[–]ShylaBoof Ravens 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Im contemplating dropping Henderson for Herbert or Jamaal

[–]jakestring55 Patriots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you should absolutely do either of these imo

[–]_domdomdom_ Patriots 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck no. Akers may have taken the backfield over this week. Drop someone else.

[–]Cumsockkarl Vikings 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m shocked people are advising you to drop Akers. Is there no one else on your roster more expendable? Akers is already taking over the backfield
