Everyone has that one guy on the bench they want to get rid of, but cant because there is no real options on WW. We can do better
for PPR leagues...
He might not be a popular name, but the guy can sure catch, and hold onto the ball. He was a great possesion reciever in miami untill marshall took over and forced him rotating downs in 3 reciever sets. I never forget camarillo, but i took a look at him in 2008 when my recievers where on bye weeks, and the guy put up some solid numbers for me. Favre seems to trust the guy already too as all 4 of farves attempts when directly to Greg Cam for a 100% catch rate.
Hes going to put up solid WR3 numbers some weeks with vikings, dont be surprised, he is a great bye week fill in PPR.
You need to make sure you're not just falling into the proverbial "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence".
You may not like your bench player, and you may think he is "destroying" your team, but be careful. Just because Camarillo is flashy, or new, doesn't necessary mean he can perform. It's important to look at the players background and experience before you just grab him. If you're not cautious, you'll end up with a player that can't back up his words. He may try to help you, but end up digging you into a bigger hole. Finally, you'll realize that his "ownership" is falling like a rock, and quickly below 42% (even among Camarillo supporters) , but it's all too late and you're still stuck with him.
Just be cautious when picking another option. Don't be like the average American and just grab the charismatic player. Actually do some research and thinking.

He can perform, and yes you look into his background...like i mentioned already. He is a solid possesion reciever, Hes better on the bench than Kenny Brit, devin thomas, deon branch, Bradon Lafell...guys like that who are probly on rosters in most 12+ team PPR leagues. In cases like this, you would probly want Camarillo for a bye week fill in stash
another good reason to be happy with murphy on your bench...
Louis Murphy-WR- Raiders Sep. 8 - 2:05 pm et
Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune predicts that Louis Murphy will lead the Raiders in receiving yards and touchdowns this season.
McDonald foresees Zach Miller leading the club in receptions. Murphy finally has sole possession of the flanker job in Oakland, and should retain it even when (or if) Chaz Schilens (knee, ankle) returns. The ideal late-round sleeper -- especially in non-PPR leagues -- Murphy is quietly a threat for 900-1,000 receiving yards. He's light years out in front of Darrius Heyward-Bey.

I grabbed Camarillo with the very last pick in a 20 team draft. I'm even going out on a limb and starting him this week but only because the guy I had slated for my WR/RB slot (Micheal Bush) likely won't play this week and my other bench WR is Nate Washington which I don't feel is much of an upgrade anyway. Besides, Washington will likely draw Nnamdi Asomugha and I don't like that matchup.
