Make it Extra-Griese

Postby Ben_ffc » Fri Nov 05, 2004 7:36 am

he's looked pretty sharp over his past 3 games. with his upcoming cakey schedule, does anyone else consider him a deep sleeper for a big finish?

he's just getting his wide receivers back, pittman's stepping up and the o-line is giving him a little time to work through his checks.

just tossing it out there.

yeah...yes

I can't believe I am saying this, but I am sitting Pennington down for Griese this week. His schedule looks good enough that I may have to do this a few more times this season.

When Galloway is at full strength, Griese will be an every week starter. He wont be a top 10 QB but in deeper leagues he will be an every week starter.

RB - Henry, T Jones, D Ward, B-Jax, Betts, B Jacobs, Selvin Young
WR - Lee Evans, Colston, Driver, Cotchery, Brandon Marshall

People were saying the same thing about Kerry Collins a few weeks ago. I am staying away from BG- he is a headache as a fantasy QB

Huge difference between Griese and Collins, Griese has actually looked decent his first couple games out. I think Griese will be a decent spot starter for the rest of the year, I'm not sure that I'm ready to bench a bonafide stud for him though.

At least you all can choose when to play him. I consider myself lucky to have gotten him off the WW a coulple of weeks ago. He is my starter. He did pretty good for me so far. With his remaining schedule looking favorable and Clayton stepping up, he might turn heads. I hope.

The problem was I either waited too far down the draft or people were drafting QBs too early according to VBD.

Quarterbacks can mature....

few remember just how awful Testeverde was (of course, some of you might not have been born yet when Vinnie was with the Buccs)

Griese seems to finally be playing within his limitations.... reading the field .....making smart decisions
I get the impression that Brian knows that this may his last chance to maintain any decent value in the NFL

I dont necessarily see him lighting things up (fantasy wise) on a consistent basis, but I do believe he has become a great option for situational games
