Britt started two seasons in a row as one of the best fantasy receivers in the league(over several weeks) before getting hurt. That would be a useful trait if those weeks were 13-16, but they're 1-6, so who cares.

Agree, but with all that ability he has to be rostered in this format. Once they move on from Locker guy has the potential to EXPLODE. Every guy on the bench has their flaws

Pryor will lose you points with INTs, but will make up for it with his feet.

However, I see Geno Smith having longer staying power in the league unless he burns out like Pat White.

Are they ever gonna move on from Locker thought? He seems to be their guy.

Dudes only started 12 games... I say if he fails this year he'll be on the MAJOR hot seat / potentially pick someone else up

Well he's been injured too much like Britt. I don't think he will every amount to much, but I think they give him at least this year and next if he stays healthy.

Would you take Kenny Britt over Cecil Shorts? Knowing as soon as you drop Shorts someone will pick him up.

Both of those guys are bench guys at this point, not someone you are starting every week. So I figure their value pretty similar especially if you are just playing in a one year league.

Amendola hasn't been ruled out yet, right? :pop:

I have him out, but have no one in. I'm leaving the spot open in case he's out, but I didn't replace him in my lineup yet hoping that by 7:30 or so tomorrow, i'll hear that he's playing.

Breakout player Cecil Shorts has a ton of potential, but he is being held back by the steaming carcass of Blaine Gabbert.

And just as I type that, I discover that Gabbert is injured, and Chad Henne will be playing Week 2. Finally, a chance to shine for Cecil!

He's listed as Q, but on ESPN you click the notes and it states he's not expected to play at all, and will be back to the primary option once he returns....which could be 2 or 3 weeks. Thankfully they play the first game of the weekend so can make the decision before that game without needlessly benching someone else.

Amendola was one of the reasons I put in the claim for Edelman

Your dynasty league carries over the entire roster? Most cap the number of keepers you can have.

Actually, "dynasty leagues" typically have a full carryover. Keeper leagues can be "full" keepers or "limited" keepers, most typically the limited variety, as the proper term for a full keeper is a dynasty league, imo.

I thought Amendola would have made it at least a couple weeks injury free.

Pending White's injury, I would say White and Brown. If no White (or if he is clearly banged up), I'd take a run at Hopkins.
