Anywho, I'm on board with your take on it, what's more likey - Ogletree goes for 60/800/10 or he's Devery Henderson... I vote Devery Henderson

I absolutely love players like this and here's why.. Some fool in every league will drop a talented player he drafted in the late to middle rounds to make room for him. I can then vulture that player off the waiver wire. It never fails, people will over react after one week of football.. ;-D


Oh Behrens.... LOLZ

It's worth making the pick-up, just in case. I'd drop most (but not all) handcuff running backs for Ogletree. (Don't even think about it with Tate, Gerhart, Jennings or Brown, to name a few exceptions). I'd also drop nearly every receiver outside my preseason top-40 to take a flier here.

Of course there's always the rare flip-side of that argument where people ignore the guy because they feel he's a one-week-wonder flash in the pan and someone gets to pick him up in exchange for a bag of used K balls and a waterboy and he turns out to be the real deal - see Cruz, Victor last year, Austin, Miles a couple years back, etc etc... Yes it is rare but it is not unheard of either.

in a 12 teamer and up i completely agree. go look at yoru last non K, DEF pick...is he ever going to start for you, or is he just a flyer? why not risk it? what is it going to hurt? i dropped my last pick in the only league he was available for him on the off chance he does make a big break out. if not, oh well, drop him and pick up someone else who is hot

just like in baseball, i like to have at least one rotating WW spot to pick up the hot guy. last year i grabbed Cam after week 1 and loved it. the team taht says he wont drop anyone is the team that misses the most valuabel WW pickups. unless your team has transaction maximums or they cost money, pick up every hot player and drop him next week if he was just a 1 week wonder.

there are tons of examples of guys winning teams leagues that were plucked form the WW

Behrens is saying to drop the following guys to grab Ogletree... Do you agree with this?

Boldin
Williams (TB)
Crabtree
Sydney Rice
Nate Washington
Randy Moss

This to me is laughable. I take a proven winner any day over a flash in the pan and thats what I beleive he is. The stars were aligned last night with multiple injuries in the NYG secondary and Witten injury. Romo was picking on teh Giants #6 corner in Coe and went to whomever he was covering. Sorry, I beleive Ogletree is no better then the 4th option in the passing game behind Dez, Austin, Witten. I would also wager that he is the most dropped guy next week after go 2 catches for 20yds. Meanwhile, I just added depth to my roster by adding Boldin... ;-D

no i would not drop an of those guys. and no i didnt read the behrens article. i really dont care wat he says. yes i would drop brandon jacobs, who was the last guy on my bench and my last non k,def pick in the draft and only w multiple injuries in SF would be sniffing a fantasy starting lineup

Most likely hot garbage, but worth a look.

Dez Bryant and Miles Austin can help him in two ways. When they're on the field, they make Oggletree a sneaky play. If either one of them goes down though, he could become more incorporated into a solid passing offense.

This happens with receivers. Oggletree might not be the guy but at this point in the year there's probably someone you can cut for him. I wouldn't go this far:

but I bet some teams have someone (second D's, fliers) worth dropping for him.

I've got a 2nd priority I'm planning to use to drop Hillman for him.

I've got Austin on that squad, and I think there is a decent chance this is a Robinson situation.
