12 team PPR league, start QB, 2RB, 3WR, TE, D/ST, K. My roster:
QB - E Manning RB - ADP, R Mathews, A Foster WR - R White, D Bowe, M Floyd, J Gaffney, Jac Jones, D McCluster TE - Z Miller DEF - NYJets K - D Carpenter
McCluster was my last draft pick before the kicker, the shot in the dark kind of upside pick that you take at the end. Looking over the roster, I wonder if I'm not better off dropping McCluster for Kareem Huggins. It's unlikely I ever start McCluster unless Bowe gets hurt and McCluster goes crazy, and Huggins is one Cadillac Williams knee tweak away from being a feature back, admittedly in a not very good offense.
The other possible better use of the roster spot is for Big Ben, who went undrafted and now will only be out 4 weeks. Who's the right guy to have on my roster? WHIR, thanks!
Huggins is the type of guy I like to stash and see if he gets a shot, Caddy isn't the poster child for health. Personally, I think Manning will be top 10 again, so unless you start 2 qb's, I go with Huggins.
I go grab Big Ben. I agree with you on the McCluster/Huggins situation. I think McCluster is the better player and will likely put up more fantasy points the problem is he is unlikely to get enough of them to warrant a start in any week, Huggins on the other hand is one injury away from being a RB2 and at a position which is the most injury prone.
QB: BREES, Cutler RB: TURNER, MCGAHEE, R. JENNINGS, Leshoure, D. Williams, Hillman, Hunter, Dwyer WR: CRUZ, GARCON, Amendola, Edwards, D. Baldwin TE: GRAHAM
Well, I like both this year, but one is not starting right now, and that guy is Huggins. McCluster will be used more than people think and I am telling you this, McCluster will be Percy v.2 this year, all aboard!!!
I would not even pause....Big Ben; no brainer. I am big on Huggins and have been watching him closely for the last couple of weeks; but I am starting to cool down a little. TB's head coach was talking earlier this week and kept referring to Graham; I don't know if Huggins' shot is as straight of a path as a lot of people think.
