No guts, no glory.

I got TO in the mid 3rd round... all the other owners moaned. They're going to be groaning this season when my team mops them up.

YES buy low.

NO he won't get suspended.

Jerry Jones knows how to play ball with headache players. He managed Irvin for goodness sakes - and he was coked up.

My thoughts exactly.

If your draft took place a month ago, then yes, you might be able to buy low on TO right now. If you drafted last night, probably not.

I just recently draft... he's still going in the 3rd... that's low for the top 3 WR.

I drafted TO as the 8th receiver in the 3rd round and can't be more happy with the gamble, he's practicing so hopefully he'll play and shut up all the disgruntled eagles fans

I was trying to point out that if you're going to go after a top WR, you can probably get those guys, who are much safer options at reasonably similar prices.


CJ = inferior to TO
Holt = actually has a "real" injury

I landed on a football in the past in the same exact way as Holt, and I wasn't 100% for two months. Cracked ribs don't heal easily.


Who said Holt has cracked ribs? Thought it was just a bruised sternum?


Bruised sternum and cracked ribs are both treated the same way. Rest. It will take him several weeks to get back to 100%... I would trade him asap for a similarly ranked WR if it is a possibility.

I would trade Holt for TO in a heartbeat.

My most recent WR rankings:

TO

Steve Smith

Harrison
Fitz
CJ
Holt

Boldin
