Any advice would be appreciated. I have nearly the same problem with Smith. He has been inconsistent all season & not doing crap since week 2. I'm stuck on whether or not to keep him & I need a roster spot this week for a replacement kicker (Janikowski on a bye). Looking at the positives & negatives, it's not an easy decision. Try to break it down like this dunbar2007
& go from there.Positives:
---This is Steve Smith we're talking about.....enough said.
---He is going to get targets & opportunities, especially with the run game struggling, & the fact that they will most likely be passing alot trying to play catch-up late in games.
---He has some favorable match-ups coming late in the season around playoff time (@Cle
@Sea, Atl, Ari).Negatives:
---His play has declined this year, & between the drops & fumbles.....he is quickly losing trust.
---QB carousel (Clausen isn't the answer)
---The next 2 weeks he faces TB & Baltimore defense. Is he really worth sitting the bench taking up a spot for this long?
==========================What should I do?
Personally I'm leaning more toward dropping him. This week I need a kicker & don't really have anyone I want to drop. But the thought of dropping Smith for a bye week kicker seems insane.
Here is my roster (PPR) - 1QB / 3WR / 2RB / 1TE / 1K / 1DEF:
QB: Philip Rivers(BYE) / Brett Favre
WR: DeSean Jackson/Jeremy Maclin/Mike Sims-Walker/Steve Smith
RB: Arian Foster/Michael Turner/Reggie Bush
TE: Jason Witten/Chris Cooley/Jacob Tamme
K: Sebastian Janikowski(BYE)
DEF: Tennessee/New Orleans(BYE)
