So is this the year Danario finally breaks out?  Obviously, the dude is as injury-prone as anyone so this could end at any time.  But the dude has major talent and the Chargers are a team with a good qb but are missing a WR1 (unless you count Gates).  In one league that  I've been saving my coin, I'm going to blow $900 of my remaining $930 blind bidding dollars on him.  Anyone else drinking any Danario-flavored kool-aid?

I'm dropping Kenny Britt for either Josh Gordon or Danario. I'm not sure what to expect from the guy, he can be a big play maker. The thing is the match up isn't good for Danario, hard to say.

Been there done that.  Just don't trust him

That said...picked him in in a dyno and will probably grab him in at least one redraft.  Doubtful I play him yet

definitely worth the gamble if your thin at WR and certainly could get hot going down the stretch if he can stay healthy if not your no worse off really.

I grabbed him two weeks ago in a 32 team league.  Talk about a shallow pool.  Waited to see what he would do the first week.  Played him this week.  Unless he gets hurt he will be my WR2 going forward.  The upside is a significant improvement over Josh Morgan and Steve Smith(STL)

The guys has always showed promise, but he's playing on gimpy knees. He's never been able to stay healthy for very long.

he was better than maclin at Missouri when they were on the field together, but he has such knee issues that I stopped rostering him altogether. he should've been the #2 rookie wr based on talent, but he went undrafted.

11 and 10 targets respectively the 2 full games Alexander's played.

I've been running Lloyd and Broyles in 1 of my flex spots, I put a small bid in on Alexander tonight but not sure if I'll start him if I win him

Was in response to the claim that they dont have a wr1, but if you want to go by that logic, in the whopping 2 game sample size, Floyd and Gates have scored twice as many touchdowns, one in each game. Point being I think its highly speculative to assume that alexander has wr1 value, given the other favored options there, his injury history, and Rivers not exactly having a career year where you can bank on 3 fantasy relevant targets most weeks.

If healthy, he's a WR2/WR3 guy based on matchup. Tampa sucks vs. the pass. Don't think Rivers will look as good as he did in the first half of Sunday's game again.

I had Gordon but had to drop him due to byes.  Both Gordon and Alexander were on the wire this week and I grabbed Alexander.  Rivers is having a tough year, but he is a proven QB and he throws a good deep ball.  SD has better weather this time of year too.

Wow, I wouldn't dropp Britt for him. Still banking on Britt coming around for playoff time -- he's just getting fully healthy now and Locker coming back should help him.

I dropped Britt for Gordon. I love Britt's upside, but i've become to gun shy and to hesitant to put him into my flex, after I did two weeks in a row were he produced two 3 point games. One vs the Bills awful pass d the other vs Indy which also isn't know for their pass d. That just getting fully health tag has been on him since the Pittsburgh win. Plus people in a tight spot with him being on a bye could be reason enough to drop him especially in leagues with small benches. I also don't like the fact that you've got Washington, Wright, Johnson and Cook to contend with. All that said he could blow up.

Grabbing Alexander makes a lot of sense but blowing $900 of your $930 beans to grab him is way too much!

At 4-6 and in need of a 3rd receiver, I didn't hesitate.  A gem running back might pop up on the waiver wire due to injury, but I can't imagine a better receiver becoming available in the next 3 or 4 weeks.

Fair enough, he does have too much competition. Tidbits like this from rotoworld make me hesitate dropping him yet, but I also don't have a guy like Gordon on the WW to snag, so to each his own.:


Coach Mike Munchak promised Monday to find more ways to involve Kenny Britt in the offense during the Titans' Week 11 bye.

Munchak acknowledged that getting Britt back into the swing of things has been a "work in progress" after no training camp and three knee surgeries. Britt did lead the Titans with six targets in Week 10, but secured just two for 36 yards and has struggled with drops for most of the season. We still like Britt as a buy-low target in Dynasty leagues and re-draft as a potential stretch-run difference maker. He should be more productive with Jake Locker back.

I think at this time in the season a FF team deparate for a WR would be thankful for either.  Danario has a horrendous injury history vs Gordon being so damned raw and his character baggage.  I think I'd prefer Danario because Rivers is going to throw a lot and has a better arm despite his lack of judgment, and Danario doesn't really have a legit stud WR to go against but does have a stud TE drawing safeties off.

It's actually possible that Alexander morphs into Rivers' WR1 if he can stay healthy.  That would be one hell of a pick up this time of the year.

DX is the PERFECT fit for that offense IF he can finally stay healthy.  So far, so good.  Rivers has always loved throwing to big receivers, and a healthy DX is more athletic than any big receiver that Rivers has ever had.  I can't reiterate that enough.  DX was a bonafide stud in college before his devastating knee injury.  He could have been the next Calvin Johnson.  Problem is he's never been able to stay healthy up until this point, and many have assumed due to the severity of his injury that he'd never be again.  Only time will tell, but IF he can stay healthy his latest production will not be an abberation, but will rather be indicative of further things to come.

I am cautiously optimistic here: Danario Alexander - WR - San Diego Chargers Posted 11/15/12 1:25am et  [img]http://www.thehuddle.com/images/facebook_thumb.jpg[/img]  [img]http://www.thehuddle.com/images/twitter_thumb2.gif[/img] San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander said his left knee, which he's undergone five surgeries on dating back to sophomore year in college, feels just as good as his right knee these days. He has eight catches for 195 yards and a touchdown in his last two games with the Chargers, and he started over WR Robert Meachem in Week 10. Huddle Up:  In 2 short weeks, Alexander (8-195, TD) looks like the best WR on the squad. He's definitely worth a flier for those seeking late fantasy season wideout help.

Whoa.  A little over the top on the hyperbole for a WR, who while showed he was talented at MO, also had only 1 great year in a spread O loaded with guys who performed very well at the college level in a conference very weak against the pass, don't you think?

Next Megatron?  at 6'-5" and 215 lbs dripping wet?  Let's see if he's a suitable replacement for VJax first, huh?
