Rothlesberger late?

Postby swyck » Fri Sep 03, 2010 2:46 pm

With so many QB flying off the boards early I'm not real happy with the mid round QBs that fall to me, e.g. Kolb, Cutler.

I'm contemplating grabbing a Palmer or Stafford in the 8th or 9th, then Rothlesberger in the 10th. Is it a reasonable expectation that he's available there and does this strategy make sense? I'd rather have Flacco in the 7th but he's often not around when it gets to me. I'm seeing 7 QBs gone by the 4th in mocks, and I'm trying to decide on if I should join that mad rush, or just sit and wait.

I keep hearing about how deep QB is but when I look at whats left after the top 6 or 7 I'm not so sure I agree

Really, you've lost him for 5 straight weeks since the Steelers are on a by. If you can get through that stretch with a few wins, you've got a pretty good fantasy QB the rest of the year.

That"s what I'm trying to do . Get Flacco in the 7th then Rothlesberger in the 10th~12th.

In my draft last night the guy two picks ahead of me took Flacco and I settled for Cutler then got Rothlesberger in the 10th.

I figured his suspension would get reduced and I'd take 10 games of stats that late.

I picked him up off the waivers to take Rorgers place when he on a bye and to hold him for a trade if someones QB goes down

I got him in the 11th because I somehow got stuck with Kolb....not real happy with my qb situation.

His suspension was reduced to 4 games. Go figure that they would suspend a guy who wasnt even charged.

I grabbed Ben late in three of my four leagues. (I got Schaub in that one and backed him up with Cutler.)

I'm linked to Cutler/Ben in those three leagues. Should be... interesting!

I think Big Ben's predicament has offered up a great opportunity for a more than adequate back-up well after you should be able to pick up that kind of player. Unlike what you normally find yourself reaching for, he is a proven commoditiy. too bad they reduced his suspension so soon, going to hurt his draft position.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
