MY Wide Recieving Core: Intelligent suggestions please

Postby bebop82 » Tue Sep 28, 2004 11:08 am

This is my WR Core:

L. Coles
K. Robinson
D. Terrell
A. Davis

I HAD Rod Gardner, but i released him after week 1 because the redskins dont have that great of a passing game so why should i have both of their recievers.

I know Rod Gardner had a GREAT game last night, but i would say Brunell prefers him to Coles. He gets the first look alot because Brunell is left handed and Gardner lines up to the left, but Brunell threw to Coles in 8 straight passing plays in the first quarter, albeit for only one reception.

K-Rob is inconsistant and on a bye for week four.

D.Terrell no one really knows what the hell hes gonna do, and hes facing a good eagles defense this week.

What suggestions do you guys have for me for week four and beyond?

Try to trade, with that receiving core your not going to win many games.

I would stay away from Terrell until we find out what Quinn can do.

L. Coles looked awful last night, dropping several passes. If he makes the plays, he could have had a decent game. I still think he will be OK, although he has never been a big threat in the red zone.

K-Rob is the headache of every owner. I am not going to get into the "he has talent" crap. Its time for him to put up or shut up. Right now, he is just inconsistent.

The Browns look lost on offense, with Garcia leading the charge. This reminds me of 2002, when it was like a lottery which Brown would get the stats. I would stay away from him unless Garcia starts playing better.

Out of the four, Coles is the most consistent play. I guess I would roll the dice with K-Rob for a number 2, maybe substituting Davis if he has a great matchup. I would forget about Terrell for now.

My first intelligent suggestion - it's "corps", not "core" ;-D

Personally, I feel like K-Rob will come around - he was sick this last week and that team's got so much offense there's plenty to go around. Terrell seems like a dog, I just released him in a 16-team deep-bench league if that gives you any idea how I feel about him. Cle WRs seem guaranteed to frustrate.

But it's hard to advise a trade without knowing your roster & it's hard to advise WW pickups without knowing who's available, or at least how many teams in your league.

Guesses at WW available WRs:

- As for this week at least I love Tim Carter going against Green Bay. You've got to love a speedy 3rd WR against them based on who's been torching them so far this season.
- Kennison? Clayton? Hymes? Too tough to guess who might be available to you

Good luck. [/list]
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems like the original post was saying 'here are my receivers' as in "WR corps", not 'these are the 4 best of my 7 receivers'.

But if this is what I'm writing about, perhaps its time for me to log off the Cafe for a little while. Time for me to seach for a life.

I believe these are interchangeable terms.

Man, I just couldn't stay away, could I. Thank God it's lunchtime. Maybe I can break free of this time vacuum.

I doubt the terms are interchangeable. I shouldn't have brought it up, though. Just one of those stupid little linguistic misuses that stick in my craw. Like when people say something is a "mute point." The word they're going for is "moot" but after long enough bastardization and goofs, I guess Balcomber is right. If enough people keep screwing it up, it DOES become interchangeable.

Time to step away from the soapbox. And get back to what's important ... like comparing two unrelated quarterbacks with a Scottish surname -or- taking sides in the great Q-tip/Bell debate. Screw it, I'll just log off for now.
