I'm in a 10 team dynasty league, there are very few, if any wavier wire players of any quality available, we have a 25 man roster. So I know that I heard a lot of good things about Schilens before he was hurt and he was supposed to be the best wr in Oakland training camp( I know that isn't saying much). But he has the size, 6'4" 225, to be a good wr in the NFL. Is he worth stashing on my roster and hoping that he turns out? I was thinking of dropping Hixon for him. Any thoughts on this?? Standard scoring league, 0.5 ppr, 6pt all td, start 1qb, 2rb, 3wr, 1te, 1k, 2idp My Roster: QB- Palmer, Eli, Orton, Henne WR-Fitz, Calvin, Colston, Henry, S. Rice, Hixon RB- AP, DWill, R. Brown, R. Bush, M. Bush, C. Taylor, LJ, Caddy, Bernard Scott TE- Dallas Clark, O. Daniels K- Longwell IDP- Willis, Ryans, Beason
Best WR in Oakland is like being the tallest midget. Randy Moss couldn't even accomplish anything in Oakland. Jerry Porter was a bust to end all busts. I wouldn't buy. Not that Hixon is far and away better, I just wouldn't touch anything Oakland now.
Thanks for the help with mine - by the way, who would you drop (DMC, McCoy or Breaston) to make the Moreno pickup? (remember, start 3WR, I only have 4 on the roster). I just have this suspicion that McCoy is going to be a premium guy before the season is over.
I have to agree with the pack on the Schillens thing. That's just way too speculative a play, and I don't see anyone targeted by Russell as having any significant value. Good luck!
Let me start off by saying that I'm a Raiders fan. Okay, you can stop laughing now.
Jamarcus Russell sucks the big one! Until he is riding pine, no Oaktown receiver will reach their full potential or worth a roster spot.
With that said, Schilens was Russells favorite target. Those two connected in pre-season regularly. But it was pre-season. Take it for what it's worth.
Me being a homer, I have Schilens stashed on IR.
