Heading Different Directions...

Postby Warpigs » Tue Sep 27, 2005 9:44 am

It's amazing to me that after three weeks of fantasy action, how the tides haved turned for numerous players.

For example, Brandon Lloyd has been tearing it up lately while Andre Johnson has been downright miserable. The same could be said about Michael Clayton.

However, I'm sure that things will average out and while Lloyd may make up some ground between himself and AJ/Clayton, I still think that the three will finish as follows:

1. Andre Johnson
2. Michael Clayton
3. Brandon Lloyd.

Any other opinions on this?

I like all of those WRs but Lloyd does have the best circumstances right now to succeed.

He is the #1 WR on a team that falls behind alot, can't run the ball consistantly, and has a QB that throws a very nice deep ball. And he is in his third year, if you go by that theory. I think he will be productive right up to the point where they give in on the season and go with Smith as their QB. He is a huge question mark and could cripple Lloyd's production.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

AJ not living up to his draft spot this year was just about the easiest bust I've ever seen. He'll get back on track and be alright, but guys that own him and expect him to live up to being a 3rd round pick drafted in the same tier (or even near it) as guys like Harrison and Horn are going to be sorely dissappointed.

I hope you're right Warpigs, but I don't know if anything or anyone can salvage that Houston offense right now.

Yea, I never understood the 3rd round rep in redraft leagues. Those in Keeper leagues will be ok I think. He already is a pretty good player, just needs some better surroundings.

Just one opinion. Well, more of a fact really. If I started Lloyd the first two weeks instead of Clayton, I'm 3-0. Instead, I'm 1-2. It's all about the hot hand, not who finishes where. If Clayton turns it on and Lloyd cools off, then they switch spots on the bench. Clayton could finish #5 this year, but if I lose 4 games because he didn't score up to par, it doesn't really matter.

The thing with Lloyd's week three production that sticks out to me is that he did all this on four receptions. Just four. That means that he had a few breaks and of course he had some long yardage gains. That also tells me that he'll have weeks we're he'll be unreliable at best.

For example, he had just 17 yards receiving in week two. Of course it was a tough defense and Arnaz Battle had a nice game, however, give me someone like Plaxico Burress who has scored fairly consistently each week,

I bet Battle finishes the yr with more fantasy points than Lloyd.

That is what I'm thinking. Definitely a sell-high candidate Lloyd is, IMO.

people keep saying that Lloyd is the number one on this niners team. While us niner fans (most of us I think) keep telling everyone that Battle is the number one.
