So, I always take on the week’s views of who I think you should roster that not everyone else is noticing, or really not paying attention to.  The funniest thing is that my posts, for the past four weeks, which start on Wednesday and then echo to the following week, have been right on. Whatever it’s “on”, well, it can be whatever you so desire.  They have been so on that I will say that I am a pioneer of sorts, minus the Sacajawea guide and the talks of irrational bowel syndrome from eating undetermined berries.  I am normally not one to gloat or blow my own anything, but I just wanted to point out that the people who aren’t reading my post on a weekly basis are basically running to the wire the following week because the guy I told them to pick up just huffed and puffed and blew there fantasy world down.  So this week, we are praying on the sick, the weak, the dizzy, and that is in the land of the best steaks I have ever encountered, Kansas City.  This is where my home slice, Albert Wilson and beneficiary of this week’s highlight if, and that’s an if, Jeremy Maclin is still concussed. If that’s the case, Wilson will play a prominent role for the Chiefs this week against the Steelers.

For this instance and this instance only, concussions are your friend, well, from a fantasy perspective at least.  Maclin went down early in last week’s game and the snap count for the KC wide outs favors Albert Wilson.  I can dig that Chris Conley is another option, but he’s a starter already anyways. The rise in snaps for Wilson indicates that he is adequately enough involved in the offense to step into Maclins spot.  This game, even with Landry Jones at the helm, favors the Steelers just based on simple math of “ummm they are better”.  Add in the fact that the Steel Curtain falls on the other side of average for pass defense, there will be a hefty sum of catch up points, catches, and targets.

Wilson got his first score last week, and that momentum is going to buoy himself into a more starring role this week.  It has to, his competition for receptions in the lackluster offense that K.C. is sporting are Jason Avant and Chris Conley, and  I think there is some sort of Muppet in there with Velcro paws.  To say the least, that is an underwhelming group of receiving options IF Maclin is out.  Looking at last week’s game, post-Maclin injury, Wilson garnered all six of targets, catching 3 for 57 yards and the aforementioned score. He isn’t anything more than a huge bye week fill-in for teams rostering the likes of, say, the waiver darlings like James Jones, Marvin Jones, or to a lesser degree, anyone banking on production from the Bears wide-outs.  So what’s in store this week for the kid from Georgia State?  Smokey Says: 8 targets, 5 receptions, 68 yards, 1 touchdown.

    Great call on Diggs!! You got me over the hump in all but one of my leagues, there wasn’t much hope when A Brown, Cooks and Hyde scored 17 points combined. I feel a little guilty cause I beat you in Smoke Show because of I grabbed Diggs as soon as I saw your post. You need to change your name to Señor EN FUEGO cause…………

    in a 20 teamer i just had to waiver funchess and this guy last night, as i dropped wheaton and colston after last week. just because smith doesn’t throw TD’s to WR’s doesn’t mean he isn’t gonna throw at somebody. oh yeah, i’d be very happy with just the 5 for 68 as well. other WR’s are hopkins/aiken/m.wilson. how you got these three ranked this week: aiken/funchess/wilson. need to start 2 of them. going for both of those left me not getting STL D (i could’ve had one of the WR’s and STL D). So i’m left streaming with JAX/TEN/CIN/IND/NYG/DAL for ROS of season. but the suck hole of WR in free agency in a league like this is scarier than having to stream D’s.

      • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:

        @Smokey: crap, now colston is back after only missing one week with a separated shoulder, so that drop doesn’t look too smart. It’s sounding like Maclin will play too.

  10. Fella says:

    Would you pick up Albert Wilson and drop CJ Spiller? And then start Wilson over Abdullah in the flex? .5 PPR.

      Smokey says:

      @Fella: Yes to all

    Al Wilson over Woods/Hogan?

      @Ro Bauti: Buffalo is banged the hell up at WR and if I had a 1b post it would have been about Woods. I have them about equal but we have seen Woods mroer frequently to know what he is capable of
