I need a reciever! Who should I pick up?

Postby Guest » Thu Oct 24, 2002 5:53 pm

My receivers are as follows:

T. Holt
Q. Ismail
C. Chambers
D. Stallworth
A. Davis

Holt and Chambers are on a bye. Stallworth, well who knows if he will be playing. That leaves me with Ismail and Davis and neither have been productive lately. I need to start 3 receivers. The following receivers are still available: Jerry Porter, Antonio Bryant, Todd Pinkston, Tim Dwight, Koren Robinson.

Should I pick one (or even two) up? And who should I drop to make the room? I'm at a loss and need to improve my team being 3-4 right now 8-o

I've been carrying ismail all year & don't see him in my starting line-up anytime soon.Drop him & a back-up K or something and grab Porter & Bryant.

Get Porter! Although he's Oakland's #3 receiver, he has 4 TD's in the last 5 games. It helps that he's going against KC, too (333 yards receiving a game and 17 total TD's).

Plus KC should keep it close, which means Gannon will continue to air it out.

Jerry Porter leads the team in td catches, thats playing with Brown and Rice! He seems to finally become a reliable third option for Gannon. Defiantly worth a pickup.

I would grab these 3. in this order

Bryant(new QB this week might improve his numbers)

and if you have a extra kicker or defense drop them

I would start all 3 of them unless Stallworth is 100% healthy

Just to throw in another opinion- I mightv think about
Tim Dwight. He's a quality 2nd wideout when Def's are
starting to concentrate on Conway.

San Diego is on a bye if you are planning for this week. Possibly pick up Porter and drop Davis. Porter would be a good upgrade. No need in being hasty with the rest. Oops, you need another receiver. I guess Bryant over the rest. Drop a lesser kicker or dt if necessary. Am not sure waiting on Stallworth is worth it, unless you have the roster room to store him.
