Jon Baldwin KC

Postby pmstick » Tue Nov 01, 2011 8:06 pm

...thinking of buying the hype and picking him up this week.

The Good:
Reading up on him he's coming off injury and has upside. Tall and fast, possible deep-threat in a pretty good receiver situation in KC. Good pedigree from Pitt.

The Bad:
Sounds crazy with his run-in with veteran Thomas Jones. Could be an off-the-field, locker room problem.

He looked good in the Chargers-Chiefs Mon night game. Can anybody shed more light on his abilities?
Standard Scoring, 8 Team PPR

WR-D.THOMAS, BRYANT, Maclin, S.Smith

4.5 speed
10'9" broad jump
got the height
got long arms

Between the ears is admittedly a problem, but that just comes with the territory with diva, elite WRs. ( see Moss, Owens, Marshall, et al)

Woulda been in the same range in the draft as Julio Jones and A J Green if it weren't for his tendency to throw teammates and coaches under the bus.

He's good, very good. I'm trying to snag him this week off the wire, but not holding my breath.

He's a nutjob just like almost every other talented wide receiver. I think it's a criteria.

Holmes is the clear-cut #1 on the Jets. Why would you ever drop him for a WR3 on the Chiefs?

Because Sanchez can't tell his number 1 receiver from the other teams number 1 DB?

Just stirring the pot for next week ;-D

On a serious note, I liked what I saw in Baldwin on MNF, but can't say he has more value than Holmes for the rest of the year.

Sanchez has less INTs than Brady, for what its worth.
