Sorry, bad wording. lol

How about this?

Sounds like a good person to drop a backup IDP for.

Edit: For jimboozie's benefit, 10 team league.

Guy dropped Roy Williams after the first week. Picked him up and started him in week 2 and paid off big. Unreal how people react after 2 games.

I agree. I'm unfortunately in a dynasty league where my starting trio is AJ, Burleson, and Clayton. I figured with 3 young great prospects, at least one of them, if not 2 of them would succeed. So far, I don't think they've netted 200 combined yards.

Does that mean drop them? No. If I could work out a trade, I would, but aside from that, I made my bid with these guys, I'm going to give them more than 2 games.

Leading candidates:
Hines Ward (after week one, grabbed him as an SA since no one
wanted him)
Trent Green and Hasselbeck (other players had better priority)
I know one player is planning on dropping CPep outright.

I suspect this is only the beginning, so I am going to be watching the WW really closely, as I suspect more goodies will show up as well.

Any good ideas which under-performers that might actually be dropped based purely on games 1 and 2 performance that would be a good bet to pick up and hold onto?


I wish i was in a league that would drop Culpepper.
Seriously, those owners need to take a ritalin pill.

Are these 4 team leagues or something?? 8-o

It'd be a cold day in hell, when any of those names would be on my waiver wire, 14 teamer.


The best RB available is William effin Green! :-b
I hate LJ Smith!

Those managers must have zero fantasy patience . . . barring a season-ending injury, you never drop players like Culpepper, Trent Green, or Hines Ward.

I dunno.... I dropped Hines Ward last year and picked up Mushin Muhammed, and I'm damn glad I did, too....
