Can I cut Reggie Wayne yet? (WHIR)

Postby toobitter » Wed Nov 16, 2011 3:46 pm

10 team standard non-ppr

haven't started wayne in weeks.
is it acceptable to cut him to pick up earl bennett to start this week?

here's my roster, let me know if there's anybody you'd cut before him.
just picked up hunter and i would cut him, but with bradshaw and mcfadden still not definites, i figured i could plug him in if either can't go. either way, i think i'd prefer starting bennett this week over any of my other possibilities, especially if maclin sits.

also, is jake ballard (just dropped) worth owning over brandon pettigrew?

Pettigrew is there for the checkdown passes to make up for the lack of a running game for the lions, and eli has spread the ball a lot this year, stick with pettigrew. Dropped dallas clark and reggie would be the only one i would hold onto, but bennett is looking great. i would drop wayne and do a plug and play, but wayne really has no value with painter and orlovsky playing

Yes you can cut Wayne. I think he has now been dropped in all of my leagues. At TE, I dont know what has happened to Pettigrew. He was targeted 9 times last week but only hauled in 5 for 38yds and 3 for 8 yds the week before. I think it has more to do with Stafford's fractured finger than Pettigrew. I see Stafford will again be wearing gloves to protect his finger which may be causing the problem. I would probably go with Ballard this week against the Eagles. He could be in for a nice day with the Eagles trying to keep Nicks, Cruz, & Manningham in check.

i think it's fine to cut reggie wayne at this point. he hasn't shown any signs of waking up. pettigrew and ballard is a tough one. i'm an eagles fan and they always seem to struggle against TE's, especially bulky ones like ballard. I might roll with him this week, they're on the verge of giving up even more than they already have.

thanks for mine
