I almost traded this guy for a bag of peanuts, and on my bench, he gets over 100 yards. Anyone see the game? Is he finally going to be the guy I drafted--or at least close?

I think he'll be better than he has been.

Personally i think that he is going to turn down the suck. For a while he had it stuck on ten.

i dont think hes gonna put up amazing numbers but im gonna put him back in my lineup now.

No. I'm fed up with him at least until he gets into the end zone. I've cut him in my league and am kind of hoping another playoff contender picks him up and starts him.

i picked him up in 2 leagues cuz they were dropped. Very surprising since they were dropped AFTER Sunday's game. so i picked em up, but i wont start him this week until he proves himself worthy of starting in front of Steve Smith who is my #3 receiver at the moment for one league.

The way I go with Wrs is if they are not a stud I give them 2 weeks. If they do bad two weeks in a row I bench then until they do good two weeks in a row. I am starting K-ROb this week because he has had 2 good weeks in a row. I think you get what I am saying. It seems to have worked since I implemented it...

Burress had a decent week a little while ago (like 92 yds or something) and everyone started saying he was back.

He repaid all that showed faith in him with something like 4 yards and 17 yards in 2 of the next 3 weeks.

He still hasn't scored a TD since the first few weeks of the year. I wouldn't count on him.

That being said, he'll be in my lineup, but only because Bobby Shaw is my next best option :(.
