TE and High Upside WW PU **100% WHIR**

Postby prophecy135 » Mon Sep 24, 2012 9:10 pm

Firstly, thanks for looking, I didn't want to start two threads so I combined them into 1. I always reply to links so leave one if you got one! on to the questions.

Which TE would you rather have in a non ppr league yardage bonus at 100 and 150, don't think that matters too much though.. Rudolph or Pitta, and why?

Next I need to replace Collie (who I just added) in my ppr league, need HIGH UPSIDE guys for the bottom of my roster. Available are:
Bilal Powell
Lamar Miller
Tashard Choice (I hesitate with him as both Spiller and Jackson will be back within a few weeks and the match ups are horrible for those weeks)
Andrew Hawkins (I hesitate with him since its ppr and he doesn't seem like a volume guy, though he doesn't need a lot of touches to produce)
Brian Hartline
Jeremy Kerley (See Hawkins)
Nate Burleson (I think his ceiling is limited)
Leonard Hankerson
Ramses Barden
Jerome Simpson (back this week)
Vincent Brown (stash for later)

Also, need a few HIGH UPSIDE replacements for David Wilson and Kevin Smith (if you'd keep either please say so) in a non ppr with RET yards. Options here are ALL THE ABOVE GUYS and:
Andre Brown (Bradshaw could be back this week)
Kendall Hunter
Daniel Thomas
Sydney Rice
Alshon Jeffery
Titus Young
**EDIT** I could actually roster both Rudolph and Pitta

Thanks for looking!! Please leave a link! I am 100% WHIR!!!!!

I like Kendall Hunter or Daniel Thomas (especially if Reggie Bush had any significant injury) to replace Wilson and Smith. I'd think to look at Rice and Young for WR depth - Young is only lucky to produce anything though he's been targeted pretty heavily. Rice doesn't have as much upside with Wilson at QB, though he's the most likely to rack up yards. Jeffery can get you some big plays, though inconsistently. I'd go for Rice personally.

I'd say Rudolph, reasoning is if you notice who Ponder goes to in clutch situations it is more than likely his TE. The only concern is he gets Simpson back this week so may take some targets away.

As far as high upside I would say Ramses Barden or Hawkins. If Nicks stays banged up all season Barden could be similar to Cruz last year.

On the RB side I would say Bilal Powell. Most upside but lowest value currently.

Lastly I would say Andre Brown as Bradshaw probably has another injury this season. After that possibly Kendall Hunter if you are talking ceiling because Gore is injury prone and its a high octane offense.

I love Pitta I think he has a chance to be one the top TE this year with his rapport with Flacco. As for the others I like Hawkins or Barden (they have big play potential). The others, man I don't even know, its a toss up go with your gut. Thanks for the help!
