Tashard Choice went off last year after the Cat and the Barbarian were both out of commission. That was against actual defenses and if Barber is out next week the team Choice will face, Carolina, has yet to show signs of an actual defense. Of course reports on Marion Barber vary from day to day to 2 weeks. Do you waste a waiver priority on Choice? Well, it is your, um, selection, but I am putting a waiver claim on him where I need a spot starter with upside and waiting on him in other leagues. Weigh your options and how badly you need a running back. Just remember that Dallas plays on Monday night and if Barber is a game time decision, well, you could get screwed.
And now, the rest of the story:
Matt Hasselbeck: The news doesn’t sound good for Hass’ ribs and his name doesn’t sound too good for Glen Beck either. Oh and while we’re at it the entire Seahawks organization isn’t too happy about him getting hurt because they were horrible without him last year. He says he wants to play, but we don’t always get what we want.
Mike Bell: His MRI showed a MCL sprain. I wouldn’t count on him. Pierre Thomas owners have been in mourning for a while and PT really needs to get out there and perform well to lift their veils.
Ronnie Brown: He went all wildcat wild on Monday night. That made me happy. I’ve seen what Brown can do for me and I’ll sign for that even if I am taking a nap.
Byron Leftwich: So this guy takes about a minute winding up to throw and he’s thrown the ball 90+ times this year so you extrapolate that and he spends about 36 days a year just winding up to throw a ball! Kinda puts things in perspective doesn’t it? The Bucs D has hit the skids and Lord Byron will serve out some poetic justice, but not too much, just enough for a bye week spot starter.
Justin Forsett: He is worth a flier especially in deeper leagues. He has home run speed and was targeted in the passing game against the 49ers. Jones is the starter, but I think Forsett earned himself more touches.
Julian Edelman: Is this the name of a NFL player? Yeah, he caught 8 passes for 98 yards last week, don’t you read the papers? If Welker is ok for week 3 Edelman is dead weight, if not, he is live weight which is much easier to carry, especially on your rosters.
Marcedes Lewis: There are too many good TE’s to choose from this season. Lewis drops the ball, not like when you forget the coversheet on the TPS reports, but like when the ball is thrown to you and you put your hands together to catch it, but it falls to the ground with a deafening thud. see Ted Ginn Jr. But even with that he can get open and run after the catch and he’s being targeted.
Antonio Bryant can duck every fantasy gamer he is jack knifing. Languishing members, not of productive, quality razzballers, sigh til unhinged victories waiver xylophonically, yes zealously. Huh? Anyway, Bryant’s injury will keep him out for a while, but supposedly it doesn’t have anything to do with his offseason surgery. With Leftwich throwing like the world is about to end (it’s not?) I’m still holding out hope. You can get him at an extremely low price, but I’d wait, he may be dropped soon.
