I didn't see a thread either.

PPR: I'll add Andre Roberts. I'm skeptical Floyd plays this week. Nice matchup vs. Jags.

Silent g? Browns coach talked about getting him more carries at the same time Willis McGahee looks horrendous.

That's a nice collection of guys I'd pray I'd never have to start.
Couple weeks ago there was enough talent on the WW in most leagues to field a whole team of decent starters.

Best I can do:

Rish. Matthews

Ingram

Rainey

Housler

Henery (even with the missed FG)

Succop if dropped

This could be a good time to start loading DSTs.

Yeah but who do you take?
Leonard looks like the bellcow and Rainey the COP.
I'd personally go the other way here. Rainey's never had a shot... LEonard has been a complementary back his entire career and clearly wears down with additional usage. I think he was more trusted in this game, but that doesn't mean he's the preferred option going forward.

Rainey's never had a chance to get consistent work until last night, and he responded. Looked like he had more burst and pop than Leonard to me. I'd rather have the unknown guy that's got a chance to be something interesting than the known mediocrity of Brian Leonard.

leonard looked pretty slow. didnt they just sign rainey?
They claimed him off waivers on 10/21 - and at 5' 8" 212 lbs, that's not exactly COP size. As a size comp (and size comp only) - Gore is 5' 9" 217. Fairly similar height/weight.

For those of us in 2QB leagues I think Tolzien & Fitzpatrick are worth a look.
Every qb is worth a look in 2qb. Ill be targeting both this week after Seneca collapsed in the first.
Which is why I added them to the thread ;)

Who do you like better ROS?

For RoS, Fitzpatrick all the way. Rodgers is likely to be back in a week or two, and TN has a soft schedule, especially through the FFB playoffs.

I'm struggling to decide between Big Ben & Carson Palmer to replace Rodgers (and Cutler and Locker, for that matter, since apparently my roster curses QBs). I'm leaning Palmer because his 2-week schedule seems better than the Steelers, but I'm not close to confident.

Rainey looked alot smaller than that to me

I think Tolzien might be able to do some things with those weapons but if Locker is out, Fitz has shown he can put up big numbers.

Take into account that Leonard went to Rutgers and what happened on Mnf, I just see him getting the grunt work with rainey the 3rd down stuff. Who knows what schiano is thinking though.

Anyone consider Dennis Johnson over Rainey/Leonard. Tate might not last which makes Johnson and this could be gold for the FF playoffs.

What do you think of Kellen Winslow? Coming off suspension, could be worthwhile in deep leagues with TE flex.

Marcedes Lewis - Cardinals are worst in the league in defending the TE + no Blackmon + he's rounding back into shape

I wouldn't bother even rostering unless 20+ team league.. I don't see them pushing him ahead of Cumberland (who should return this week). I'm surprised Winslow is still with the team.

Not to mention Santonio looks likely to return.

Jets really need to ditch poison like Santonio and Winslow from Geno in the offseason. :2cents:

The only things that scared me away from Rishard Matthews is that his performance smells a lot like an Ogeltree-type outlier, as opposed to a "now and moving forward" performance. Gibson left in week 8 - Matthews puts up the big performance in week 10...against Tampa Bay (passing yardage-wise, they're okay, but they are bottom 10 in sacks, opposing QB ratings, passing TDs allowed, etc.). That said, Matthews is "replacing" Gibson. Okay, so what? If you play in PPR, that's alright I guess (Gibson's number I mean) - but in 6 games Gibson had 3 where he had under 50 yards receiving and hasn't cracked 80 yards receiving yet this season.

I guess it depends what you are looking for. If you are looking for a decent WR3/flex possession WR that will get you a half dozen catches, and 50-75 yards, sure. Hopefully, you are not thinking his week 10 performance against Tampa is going to be his average...or anywhere near it. Week 10 was, imho, his high water mark. He's likely not more talented than Gibson and I think will perform about the same as Gibson did over the first several weeks. If that's what you need, by all means add him. But if you're hoping to catch lightning in a bottle at WR, I think you may have to keep looking.

I certainly don't think he's going to approach his week 10 performance going forward. And I play in PPR leagues, where a guy like Mathews has some value. I picked him mainly on the strength of his 14 targets. I don't plan to start him here in week 11, but it's worth a stash and see if he gets back to double digit targets. If not, he's an anomoly Jason Avant type that gets thrown back to the wire. But if he hits, you got a cheap WR3/flex potential guy going forward. No real risk as my WR6, who could be more. If not quickly cut losses and move on to the next waiver du jour.

FBG's top 200 gives a lot of love to Leonard, but reading Waldman's take in his latest Gut Check made me go out and get Rainey. In the end, it's very possible that neither is going to lead fantasy teams to a championship. But I'm convinced that Leonard's ceiling isn't worth investing into, but Rainey could be the late season home run. Given a choice to burn one roster spot, I always go for the higher upside.
