Warrick out for season...

Postby warrick95 » Fri Nov 05, 2004 4:15 pm

Sigh...it sucks when your favorite player is shelved for the year:

http://bengals.com/

He wasn't expected to have much fantasy value this year, though, but this is still relatively relevant material.

And upon further review, just as sappy, too."

In all of the NFL, Peter Warrick is your favorite player? Not saying there is anything wrong with that, just curious.

Obviously, this raises the value of T.J. Houshmandzadeh some, but not much. The upcoming Cinci schedule is brutal, and Palmer still shows only occasional flashes of consistency.

This is terrible news for the Bengals.

Ill be first to say that I took Warrick for granted and wanted K. Washington to take over the #2 spot as I saw him with tons of potential who could spread the field. In reality Palmer needs Warrick and his hands and great short route running to take the pressure of himself and CJ.

I guess its better to rule him out now though than to have him further injure himself

Does this mean that TJ isn't the answer either Flux? Isn't he also a possession type WR?

i said it before and I'll say it again.

TJ is at best an average receiver. Do not consider him a starter in any fantasy league.

No way is TJ the answer. He's an alright special teams guy and a good #3 or possibly more of a #4 WR. But he has a case of the dropsies and isnt really the kind of WR they need. I had high hopes for CJ and Washington playing on the outsides and Warrick in the slot, but Washington has been just bad, and TJ hasnt been much better.

This whole discussion just reaffirmed my dealing of Chad Johnson this week. It's really unfortunate for Palmer's development that he hasn't had the full complement of weapons at his disposal. Now defenses can zone in even more on CJ. Just means that hopefully he's a buy cheap next year.
