Anyone rolling the dice with Curtis this weekend? (1 Viewer)

Home vs ATL.

Supposedly not on the injury report and has been practicing past few weeks, so should be in game shape. I am considering starting him over Bowe and Holt.

Can any Philly homers chime in here? Will Curtis be starting?

 
heard he is starting and debating on plugging him in.....they may try to get him in the groove early and feed him the ball to get the rust off

 
With Curtis back another target for McNabb, now he got three that will do good any game, problem is which one is tops on any given week (Jackson, Curtis ,Westy). This week play them all.

 
I was weary of starting him, but with Santonio Holmes out, I have no other options.

I hate starting guys who come back after long layoffs. But if I have no one else, then I just plug and hope

 
I have to start him this week. With Marshall and Royal on a bye, Cotchery a GTD, and Engram and Avery as my other WR's I really need him to come through this week too :mellow:

Personally, I would not start him over Bowe. Holt, probably not either but a case can be made. I have a hard time putting a WR in my lineup in his first live game action of the year (I have to use him at flex after the rash of bad news to my deep starters/bench this week). But if I had Holt, I would use Holt. Hard to judge the effectiveness of guy coming back from an injury (IE: Colston last week)

 
Starting Breaston, Moore and Curtis as of now. Waiting to hear more about Chambers and I just picked up Washington because of the latest addition to the ganja team.

So, yes, I just might be playing Curtis.

 
I need to see how he does before putting him in the lineup. I'm going with Nate Washington instead. Giants have trouble defending the deep pass, and that's what Ben is going to be throwing washington all day in Holmes' absence.

I hope Curtis has a solid day as it will be a nice new toy for a potential playoff run (or as trade bait).

 
I'm locking him into my lineup for the rest of the year. I've been waiting patiently.

My 3 best WRs. This is what happens when you don't draft a WR until every other team has three.

Vincent Jackson

Owen Daniels

Kevin Curtis

 
all leagues this weekend

The only one I'm having trouble in is a 12 team PPR...

Choose 2 of A Byrant @ Dal, A Gonzo @ Tenn, & Curtis.... I keep flipping Gonzo & Curtis.

I'm not expecting the world but it's a great matchup and all of the reports indicate Curtis has looked sharp in practice. It's a great matchup; the Eagles are at full strength and McNabb should have a big game. I'm starting Curtis. I'm expecting big things from him in the second half and I'll let him start it tomorrow.

 
I like the match-up quite a bit, and McNabb is the kind of QB who will look to reintegrate one of his top weapons into the offense.

Colston was taken out of the game. And he had a thumb injury which prevented him from making plays.Curtis had a hernia repair. I get the point you're trying to make, but I doubt Curtis is taken out of the game for ineffectiveness

 
Update from RotoWorld:

Eagles WR Kevin Curtis says he plans on "playing a lot" in Sunday's game against the Falcons.

The local papers don't expect Reggie Brown to play much if at all Sunday. Go ahead and start Curtis if he's your best WR3 option this week.

Great news! I'm a little worried about the chemistry Jackson and McNabb have seemed to form, but Curtis is an automatic difference maker. Even better start now that Brown may not play much/at all
 
As my WR2 because of byes it's between Curtis or Nate Washington...Both are on our WW currently. Leaning toward Curtis by a hair..No wait Washington or Josh Morgan on our WW :goodposting:

Curtis was inconsistent last year. He had some big games but mostly he was up and down finishing barely as a top 20 WR. However, McNabb wasn't 100% most of the 2007 season and Curtis really didn't have a legit threat on the other side of him to keep coverages honest.

That is not the case this year so I have a hunch that Curtis will be a top 10-15 fantasy WR down the stretch. Expect better production than what has been predicted by most - I'd say at least 80-100 yards and a TD against the Falcons which haven't been stellar against the pass this season. Trust me, you want him in your lineup on Sunday. :loco:

Even over TO? :unsure:
 
Curtis only had 2 100 yd games last yr. That # surprised me. Basically most of his year end #s happened in that one game.
Yes but in a PPR league he makes up for lost yardage with receptionsAfter the bye week (week 5) he scored under 10 fantasy points only 3 times. I'd take 10 fantasy points from my last flex spot every week and be thrilled!

However, most of his year end #s coming from 2 games? You must be mistaken for Chad Johnson

Curtis' 2007 Stats: 77, 1110, 6

Week 6: 5 121 1

Week 13: 6 111 1

That leaves... 66 receptions, 878 yards, and 4 TDs unaccounted for...

In a PPR league that's an average of 12.7 points per game. Pretty solid if you ask me

Umm in week 3 he had 11 receptions, 221 yds, and 3 TDs. Thanks for proving my point.

Against Tampa with Brad Johnson at QB? Uh, yeah.

It appears these Saturday afternoon shifts are killing my eyes... Sorry for my mistake.I was unaware what game you were referencing.

However, I stand by my post saying that in only 3/12 weeks did he score below 10 fantasy points. Even if he doesn't have a huge game, he's going to get you at least 4-5 catches with the possibility of 60+ yards.

Taking out that one big game that you are referencing, and that's STILL leaving 66 receptions, 889 yards, 3 TDs... so we're back where we started, 11.5 fantasy points per game.

Okay, take out all 3 of his 100+ yard games...

55 receptions, 657 yards, 1 TD...

9.7 fantasy points per game, almost 10 fantasy points per game every game the rest of the season... Again, pretty damn good for a flex player if you ask me

Now this guy isn't going to carry your team, no one is saying that. I don't think he'll be a top 10 WR... top 15 maybe as his highest potential, but as a WR2 you could do worse, and as a WR3 he's possibly one of the best out there. 10 fantasy points per week from your last flex spot. Hell I'll take that and laugh all the way to the championship game

3 games after the by week under 10 fantasy points in a PPR (bolded)Like I said, take out the 3 biggest games he had (italicized) and he's STILL averaging 9.7 fantasy points per game. Go ahead, do the math, it'll come out right

9.7 from my last flex position is plenty for me
