Ampant's Random WR Start of the week. . .

Postby ampant » Sat Dec 13, 2008 1:51 pm

Davone Bess . . .

This got started in another thread about Andre Johnson, but I figured I would throw this out there in case it might help somebody out.

In the 3 weeks since he has started, Bess is averaging 10 balls thrown his way, and is averaging just over 7 receptions/game and over 80 yards/game. He's putting up solid numbers, leading the team in receptions, and this week goes against the Niners, who are ranked 30th in the league vs fantasy WRs.

I looked on the Cafe's start/sit column, and he isn't even listed . . . anywhere. This is crazy. He's likely to be a top performer this week, and is almost a lock for 75 yards and 6 catches.

My prediciton . . . 90 yards, 8 receptions, and a score.

Well . . . that could have worked better. Next time I screw myself I'll have to remember the vaseline.

I had Bess and Ginn going for me today (injuries) in one league. Yeah...that didn't work out so well.

Looked good on paper, though. I guess that's why they play the games.

Your not alone on Bess, I watched him produce on my bench for weeks so I should of knew once I started him in two leagues he would bust this week :-X Of course he'll probably score next week when I bench him, but he was certainly a good option this week, chips just didn't roll his way.

Don't tank on Bess yet. He's still got KC next week. I'd also look into Branch playing at home against NYJ.

I played Branch last week due to matt jones suspension. I was pleasantly surprised as he earned over 10 pts (.5 ppr) and will start him as a #3 WR again this week. He is finally getting his legs under him
