Dante Stallworth-Finally becomes a stud or still a dud?

The problem with Stallworth isn't potential explosiveness, it's consistency. He's one of those guys who will put up 120 & a score one week, then get you 10 dropped balls & 20 yards the next. You can put up big weeks when he hits, but you can't build a championship team with him IMO.

I'm sure there are people that will disagree with me, but at the wideout spot I'd much rather have reliable production than sporadic high fantasy points.

randle el
lelie (or is it rod smith?)
charles rogers
michael clayton

but i think stallworth will soon justify consistent starts in a fantasy line-up.


You named 9 #2's. There are 32 teams in the NFL. That means 23 of them are not startable. Hence, only a few are. :-)

I wouldn't be so quick to put Rogers in that list either...he hasn't done anything so far this year and is hurt again.

bah! 9 is more than a few. it's between 3 and 5. any more than that is at least several. but that's just semantics. the truth is, there are a lot of 'em that haven't even surfaced. is michael clayton the #1? guess that makes galloway the #2. he's worth starting. charles rogers is certainly worth starting when healthy.

ferguson might even be worth starting, while we're at it. and that's before javon walker's injury, when driver was inarguably a good start.

back to donte. how much of his inconsistency can be placed on various knicks, bruises, and strains? i should say quite a bit. if he's healthy, he'll produce. that's my call, anyway.

I think the answer to this question: "Is D. Stallworth a stud or dud?" is the same as it always has been -- Sometimes he's a stud, sometimes a dud -- when you start him, cross your fingers, pick up a lucky penny and make a wish.

KFFL is reporting that Donte' Stallworth will handle punt returns with the loss of Michael Lewis (knee). Stallworth will also be involved on kickoff returns, joining RB Aaron Stecker as the primary return men.

I'm in a league that awards one point per every 20 return yards, and after losing Javon Walker, my WR corp is thin. So I'm going with Stallworth until I have a better option - his potential from receiving yardage and return yardage could be significant.
