Hackett gone...who do you ride: Branch or Burleson??

Postby los locos » Tue Dec 04, 2007 6:16 pm

I figured Branch would be the man with Hackett out...but last week it seems Branch was out of the picture. I couldn't watch the game, so maybe he was merely shut down last week. Now I need to make a decision for next week verses ARI.

i think last week was just an off game for branch. hasselbeck looks to him a lot, and burleson's td came from the eagles defenders doing a poor job of covering him and letting a hole open up on the sidelines.

Defintely Branch. Hes Hass's prefered target. For example, last week he was thrown to 10 times compared to Burlesons 8.

In a PPR league, I'd consider Engram equal or better than Branch or Burleson.

In a non-PPR league, I'd roll with Branch over everyone.

who was Lito Shepherd on, and was that a factor in Branch's disappearing act?

Engram is the best answer here. Branch doesn't seem 100% to me. And Burleson is only a big play receiver at this point. Engram will get you 8 to 18 points each week with no problems. The other two options are boom/bust with no higher upside.

The Philly secondary has played mediocre all year. Lito hasn't been the same since coming back from his knee problem and got outrun by Burleson on his big TD grab and run. In the end Seattle didn't need to pass much to win given that SA looked terrible but healthy. Also the rain might have made them more conservative in the 2nd half.

Week 2 against ARZ

Branch- 7/122
Burleson- 2/39 TD
Engram- 5/71

If you think Branch is healthy, then I would play him.

Branch doesn't score TDs.

Engram I have always viewed as a possession "3rd" guy.

By process of elimination, that leaves Burleson as your goto Seattle fantasy WR.
