Players I have officially given up on...

Postby Paladyr » Wed Oct 20, 2004 2:55 pm

I'd like to take the time to let you all know who I've given up on this year, and expect to do next to nothing for the remainder of the year. I would drop any of these players to the WR for ANYTHING with upside. This is a 10 man 2 player keeper league.

1. Jerry Porter - Collins or Gannon, doesn't matter, he's a bust
2. Donte Stallworth - It's just not happening like it was supposed to. If you keep telling yourself "oh well last weak this appendage bothered him", or "this week they are playing a really weak defense", you'll end up playing an unproductive player weak in and weak out for the rest of the season, waiting for him to bust out.
3. Koren Robinson - I absolutely did not want to draft him but had to. The guy just can't catch balls and I don't care what he did last week, he's not going to put up big numbers... EVER. I thought this way BEFORE the suspension talks came but was trying to sell him. No one would buy.
4. Chris Chambers - The guy has talent, but the offense in Miami is just horrid.
5. Peerless Price - He was a bust before the season even started, and still is. I stayed far away from him draft day. Very droppable.


I've already dropped 1 through 3, 4-5 I just mentioned because I remembered them also. Last year, none of the receivers that were unproductive for 3 straight games did much of anything the rest of the year. That's part of how I came to the conclusions above. Feel free to add your own.

I agree re: Stallworth and Price. I managed to trade Price earlier in the season when it was clear he'd be sucking, and will probably drop Stallworth soon.

Perhaps also add Barlow to the list? He might do better if he stays healthy and Rattay keeps defenses honest with the passing game, but I wouldn't want to take that chance.

Luckily, with the exception of Chambers, those are all players I gave up on last season and opted not to draft...

I still have Porter at the bottom of my roster. Gave up on TJ Duckett.

I also gave up on Boo Williams at the beginning of the season and picked up some undrafted no name...Eric Johnson, worked out pretty well.

On the subject of Chambers, I'm still considering dropping him this week. My 4 WR's are AJ, Plax, Gardner, & Chambers. The first three are on bye this week, so I'll be letting Gardner go..... may just cut Gardner AND Chambers. I'm planning on starting AJ and Plax the rest of the way. Roethlisberger seems to have Plax in his crosshairs quite a bit. Chambers has a world of talent, but with that O-line... jeez. I'll be searchin the free agent pool this week. :-o

I finally dropped Chambers this week. His stats look even worse when you consider that one of those TDs was a freak play that wasn't intended for him.
