Robbie Gould vs. Marques Colston

Postby skinsfan » Sun Oct 08, 2006 12:47 pm

I think he's the best fantasy kicker we've seen in a while, delivering consistently every week. He's kicked two 40-yard FG in the first quarter today vs. Buffalo.

Colston is a force at TE, but while Gould never seems to get shut down, I see Colston having a few crummy weeks.

Could the guy who picked up Robbie Gould benefit more than someone with Colston?

Yes, and the guy who picked up Colston could benefit more than the guy who picked up Robbie Gould. It depends on your league.

Today Gould has got me 19.50 points (tackle), while Colston has 2.65 points, FWIW.

Gould remains perfect on the year.

The only way to determine who will be the bigger pick really is how much of an upgrade they get for them based on the player they are benching/dropping for them, I imagine the player droped for Gould was another kicker, and it wasnt as big of a difference than the player benched for Colston. But thats not always the case.

Kickers generally outscore TEs anyways, if they aren't one of the elite ones. The Bears offense is pretty good so there is a ton of opportunities for Gould.

Colston seems way more valuable to me, especially given how much of a down year this is for all the "real" tight ends.

The fact that Colston can be started at TE just because a few teams had a fleeting thought about it at the combine even though to my knowledge he's never taken a snap at the position at any level is probably the biggest and most ridiculous blunder I've seen the major FF hosts (yahoo, etc) make.

It seems that you can pencil Gould in for 12 points every week, which is a consistency you don't get from Colston, who had 38 yards today and about the same until that junk play at the end of the Carolina game. Granted, on many weeks Colston will be the #1 TE, but the sort of consistency we're seeing out of Gould is rare for a player at any position, and is reserved normally to guys like Tomlinson and Manning.

Gould has been amazing for me, he is almost a lock for at least 10 points a week.
