Your bench underachievers - Not even worthy tradebait

Postby Challie » Fri Sep 19, 2003 5:16 pm

Who on your bench needs to have 1 breakout week so you can trade his worthless ass?

I've got Kelly Holcomb, Quincy Morgan, Orlandis Gary, Josh Reed & Johnny Morton stinking things up for me.

It's killing me - I love dealing but this squad is really not giving me anything to work with. I've got Bulger & Hasselbeck to play with, but that's about it & I'm waiting for Bulger to get me through Hasselbeck's Wk 4 bye (Rams play ARIZONA then). Then I'll ship him off at what is hopefully his value's high point for the year.

Who are your bench underachievers?
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

In a return league, I'd like Michael Lewis to show up. I had him starting the first two weeks...not any more. He lost his spot to Dante Hall. Also, I expected more from Andre Johnson. He'll remain on my bench until I can deal him based on potential.

My benchaholics are Lelie, Duckett, and making his first start on the pine...drum roll...Curtis Martin. Give me 1 good week to find a new home for these strays.

Trung Canidate was killing me. I dropped him so I could pick up the KC D for this week against the Texans. My other 2 D's were MIAvBUF and DENvOAK so playing against those two tough offenses didn't seem like a good idea. However, I need to find some sort of a RB by week 5. In week 5 both Faulk and Lewis (my 2 starting RBS) will be on a bye week and my only bench RB is Troy Hambrick.

Underachievers???.....Look at this group of supposed hereos that are looking like zero's!!!!

Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D

QB's: T Green, K Holcomb - (Their woeful performances speak for themselves)

RB's: W Green, D Staley (both are full time starters and neither has scored or gotten 100 combined yds in a game this year!)

WR's: J Horn, K Robinson (Horn had a total of 5 yds today and K Rob was a no show last week and so far this week!!!)

TE's: J Shockey - (hardly any yds and only 1 TD this year)

Kicker: J Carney - (4 pts today)

Thank God for the Priest!!! At least he gives me a chance.
That's my two cents and it's worth every penny of it!

Semper Fi!

Kevan Barlow ,Mike Anderson (my insurance for Clinton Portis). Had to grab him and drop Boldin. Bubba Franks is my starting TE. He is the only TE I have . I burnt my 8th round pick to grab him.

Hey Budman, at least you and I can try shopping Holcomb this week - as long as his feet or heels or whatever he's complaining about tonight isn't a problem.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

hehe my stinkers are Olandis Gary and Marty Booker, and in some respects, Brett Favre. This is the 3rd time in a row that Hasselbeck has outperformed Favre in my league.

Today I thought "self, favre is playing Arizona. YOU could have a bigger game against Arizona than Hass will against the Rams"

so I started Favre.

lol not only did Favre not have as good of a day, but they out right LOST to the pathetic cards.
