Pick up Antonio Brown? WHIR

Postby RedBirdChica » Sun Aug 28, 2011 4:31 pm

I have a good feeling about this guy. Is it worth the risk? The idea of dropping Delone or Mike Thomas makes me a little uncomfortable ... but is he the real deal?

I would pick him up for Mike Thomas. not much risk since you probably wouldn't start him over roddy or reggie anyway. i think he has more upside than thomas.

I'm leaning more toward dropping Delone ... even though he is one of my favorite sleepers of the season. I see him eventually being a Tolbert kind of guy.

Mike Thomas has the No. 1 spot for the Jags ... and that counts for something, no? Even thought they have an arena league QB tossing him the ball ...

lol, yeah that about sums it up. the reason i said thomas is that you're already pretty stacked w/ Reggie Roddy and Ocho. You may find it hard to be able to start thomas over those guys, so you might as well get rid of him. W/ delone, if addai gets injured, you have a better chance of actually getting to use him.

It was only 1 game and a preseason game at that........i would keep what u have. But sometimes u have to go with ur gut, if u like the guy drop thomas not carter. Im a huge indy fan but dont like addai and Im telling u if carter can learn the blocking he will pass the lack luster addai. That would be the point where you start kicking ur own ass for dropping him.
