I enjoyed the fantasy football talk we had on here a couple of weeks ago. Since I saw that HSA needed a fill in for the rumpus room, I figured I'd take the opportunity to start up a conversation with it.
Most of week one is done. My teams look promising. While I will not win in every league I'm in, my guys put up some high point totals that I think they will be able to keep putting up week after week.
Here are some guys that might be on your waiver wire after week one that may help you:
Alfred Morris, RB Washington: If you had your draft a few weeks ago, chances are Morris went undrafted. The Redskin running back situation was considered a mess and most people avoided picking one. Morris proved able to run out the clock on the New Orleans Saints and put up 96 yards and 2 TD's on 28 carries. While Mike Shannahan isn't very loyal to his RBs, Morris could help you out in the short term.
Randall Cobb, WR Green Bay: Cobb was targeted more times than any of the Packer WRs. He even lined up in the backfield on multiple occasions as the Packers are trying to find a way to get him the ball. He could be on the verge of a break out campaign.
C.J. Spiller, RB Buffalo: Spiller looks like he is going to take over for Fred Jackson, who left the game with an injury. Spiller had a monster game with 169 yards and a touchdown on only 14 carries against a tough Jets defense. Put in a waiver claim on him ASAP.
Danny Amendola, WR Rams: Amendola was targeted 9 times in the Rams loss to the Lions. He reeled in 5 catches for 70 yards. He was injured last season, but the year before was Sam Bradford's security blanket as he recorded 85 catches. He might put up that kind of production again.
Kyle Rudolph, TE Vikings: The big tight end reeled in 5 passes for 67 yards in week one. Something about him reminds me of Jimmy Graham late in 2010. Pick him up if you have the roster space.
Here are some handcuffs:
Daryl Richardson, RB Rams: The Rams spent a high draft pick on Isaiah Pead, but it was Richardson who had the backup carries. He only had 2 carries, but tallied up 20 yards. If you have Steven Jackson and you want a security blanket, go for Richardson.
Bryce Brown, RB Eagles: You spent a high pick on Lesean McCoy. Insure yourself with Brown. He was viewed as a better recruit than Trent Richardson when he came out of high school. He barely played in college, as he transferred from Tennessee to Kansas State, which made him sit out a year. Then he dropped out of Kansas State after 3 carries. Even still, the Eagles picked him in the 7th round of the draft and he has now taken over the backup duties in Philly from Dion Lewis. He is a McCoy injury away from being the starting RB on a team that loves to run.
Hopefully you guys all had successful weeks. Use this thread for fantasy football talk, start/sit advice etc...
If you aren't in fantasy football use this like you would any other RRRR.
