If this thread had a dashboard...

Is Travis Taylor of Minnesota going to be worth anything for the rest of the season? He had a great start, but now A.)Minnesota's gone down hill and B.) Nate Burleson is back.

I doubt that I'll get a trade for him, so what sleepers are probably out there in the free agency?

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Friday, 4 November 2005 22:02 (fourteen years ago) link

Hard to tell what's going to happen with the Vikes, though Brad Johnson may actually be an upgrade right now.

WRs are the easiest position to fill off the wire. Don't know who's available in your league this week but at least a couple of these guys ought to be...

Antonio Chatman, Bryant Johnson, Courtney Roby
- All filling in for injured starters for at least the next couple of weeks. Chatman and Johnson should get the benefit of opposing defenses doubling Donald Driver and Larry Fitzgerald.

Bobby Engram, Isaac Bruce
- Both due to return from injuries. Engram is the safer play, since he was having a pretty good season until he went down.

David Givens, Amani Toomer, Marcus Robinson, Doug Gabriel; Shaun McDonald
- Toomer's coming on, Robinson may be hot right now, Givens is getting more looks than Branch and Gabriel can be a beast when he gets on the field. Givens probably the safest play, Robinson and Gabriel are risks that could pay off handsomely.

Antonio Bryant and Az Hakim may be available as well and are both decent plays. Antwaan Randle El is probably available too, but I wouldn't jump on him given his occasional stone hands and the Steelers' QB situation.

Charles Rogers will likely be playing the WR1 and may be worth a shot just for that despite Detroit's offensive disarray.

I'm benching Donovan vs. Washington and playing Eli vs. th' Niners. Lack of faith or right place right time?

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Saturday, 5 November 2005 01:10 (fourteen years ago) link

Does anybody think I should start Andre Johnson (WR) of the Texans this week? He's pretty much sunk my team singlehandedly this season. I picked up Antonio Bryant off waivers, but he hasn't done much either.

Johnson HAS to play well eventually. Doesn't he?

Giants = Super Bowl (TCBeing), Saturday, 5 November 2005 01:25 (fourteen years ago) link

Houston's an eleven point underdog this week. I'm not sure how much passing Carr's going to do against Jacksonville's defense.

Like rogermexico pointed out in his thread, surely you can find a better WR.

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Saturday, 5 November 2005 01:33 (fourteen years ago) link

Johnson HAS to play well eventually. Doesn't he?

He can play like Jerry Rice on Scooby Snacks the rest of the way. Last I checked, receivers only put up fantasy points if the QB can get them the ball, and the line still isn't givving Carr time for downfield strikes. (Though to be fair Jabar Gaffney's been consistent pointswise in Johnson's absence. Not helping so much on the field, but not costing anyone fantasy games.)

I'm benching Donovan vs. Washington and playing Eli vs. th' Niners. Lack of faith or right place right time?

Has Eli shown us anything on the road yet (erm, no. Unless you count the road game against the Saints). That said, if you take TO's word for it McNabb's not getting any healthier, and Denver may have just showed a pretty good, and pretty pissed off defensive unit how to handle him. Though if he plays there is that whole not-running-the-ball thing...

It's a tough call, but I'd go with Manning. He has to grow up sometime, might as well be now. And even if the Niners are healthy on defense now he ought to be able to chuck it to Shockey, rinse and repeat. Plus, y'know, Amani Toomer sightings have been reported.

dan (dan), Saturday, 5 November 2005 17:41 (fourteen years ago) link

If only you they gave fantasy points for being a cool guy you'd want to hang out with. I'd go with Ricky too though. I'm forced to start C-Mart and Carnell Williiams tomorrow and I'm still thinking about benching one of them for Ricky.

Oh, and, uh, so Eli Manning @SF vs. D-Mac @WAS is looking pretty good right now. That roaring sound you hear is LJ Smith owners rejoicing over TO's suspension.

Waiver time! Who do y'all like this week?

In the WR department, I'm thinking Wilford (JAX WR2) is a decent pickup. Burleson (MIN WR1) too. My league has a very shallow bench, so I'm not big on one-week plays, otherwise I'd be taking a good look at Bryant Johnson (ARI WR2).

RBs: EBennett, DStaley, SGado, GJones, JWells.

rogermexico (rogermexico), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:24 (fourteen years ago) link

Oh, and it looks like Robert Ferguson's coming back too...

rogermexico (rogermexico), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:24 (fourteen years ago) link

I have Julius Jones (returning), Thomas Jones (maybe out), Kevin Jones (maybe out), and Willie Parker (maybe out). I'm kinda screwed.

The Obligatory Sourpuss (Begs2Differ), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:40 (fourteen years ago) link

what's the deal with tj?

hstencil (hstencil), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:03 (fourteen years ago) link

Nov 9: Jones was forced out of last weekend's victory over the New Orleans Saints after aggravating his bruised ribs, and he has been listed as questionable for this Sunday's meeting with the San Francisco 49ers. The running back did not practice with the Bears on Wednesday, and a final decision on his availability likely won't be made until just before game time, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Advice: If Jones cannot go this weekend, rookie Cedric Benson will get the starting nod for Chicago, while Adrian Peterson should get a few touches as well. On the season, Jones has 753 yards on 167 carries and six touchdowns in eight games. He also has 17 receptions for 66 yards.

I didn't realize that we were playing the full 17 weeks! Most leagues usually quit after the 16th week cuz of the dreaded "resting players" phenomenon... Not that I am complaining, as with the *second highest* point total in the league, I damn well deserve to make the playoffs.. On the other hand I will most likely be without star wideout Marvin Harrison for the Art Donovan Bowl championship

Looks like he had an ankle injury to overcome. He's a fast corner, but not a shut-down corner by any means. His return yardage will probably be his greatest asset.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 14 October 2010 18:18 (nine years ago) link

kevin walter is a solid fantasy wr. if the texans offense is clicking he will get points. kc defense has been tight this year but houston are at home and they will get a lot of the ball.

MAX NOT FOR MOD (Roberto Spiralli), Thursday, 14 October 2010 18:30 (nine years ago) link

My team:

So this point in the season I'm second place in the league, and I've got some killer players (only lack of depth is at QB). Briefly for those who don't want to click the link, I've got Arian Foster, AP, LeSean McCoy, Mike Williams (Sea), Miles Austin, Mike Wallace (Pit), Steve Smith (Carolina), and Lee Evans. (I also have Anthony Armstrong + Nate Burleson.) I feel like I can dish out Lee Evans and maybe someone like Mike Williams or even Anthony Armstrong for a strong starting option, but I stink at doing trades. I'm soliciting any advice. Another team offered DeAngelo Williams for Lee Evans + Mike Williams, but I'm iffy on DW being a legit starter this year. What do you guys think? Any trades you can recommend me pursuing or should I sit on what I've got? I always feel like I blow it around this time of the year, either by making a stupid trade that I didn't need to do (I dished out Steve Slaton two years ago which ended up costing me the league championship) or missing a great opportunity to unload excess decent guys for a real starter.

Mordy, Tuesday, 26 October 2010 16:20 (nine years ago) link

I had DW in both of my leagues and I finally just dropped him off in one because he's dead weight. I'd keep Lee Evans, actually, because Ryan Fitzpatrick not only likes to throw, but he's pretty good at it.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 26 October 2010 16:36 (nine years ago) link

DW is still a good back but he and Stewart can't do much until they establish a consistent passing game.
