Jackson will miss Seahawks game vs. 49ers

 

Just as I head into a FF superbowl. :D

 

 

 

I knew I should have picked up DJ Hackett (quick perusal to my other league to see if my opponent happens to have DJax). Effing guy does this to me every year (and I still get seduced into having him)...okay, so Santonio Holmes, Kevin Curtis or Ernest Wilford (yuck). Sayonara fantasy crown.

So DJ Hackett gets the nod? I heard that Burleson will actually be the starter opposite Branch. Seattle homers? Judging by the replies here Hackett will be the man. No big deal to me other than playing the guy tied for 1st(no playoffs :D ) and others are counting on me to play spoilder which I enjoy very much. But my most consistant FF player in that league was DJax and now it looks like I'm f*cked. K. Warner, SA, Hines Ward, Ch. Taylor, R. Brown, and now DJax. No wonder I sucked in this league. I'm the freekin' Mash unit!

 

But seriously, do I pick up Hackett or Burleson?

I'd probably leave them both on the wire. Rumor is Hasselbeck has developed a special connection with some little used guy named Artose Pinner. :D

Yeah, I read where Burleson will likely be named the starter in lieu of D-Jack in Week 15. However, Burleson doesn't usually see a lot of pass targets and the Seahawks run a lot of 3+ WR sets where Hackett will certainly be involved. And I've yet to read anywhere that Engram is going to be ready. So I think you need to just pick the WR you like most; both should see the field enough to get a useful number of opportunities. My initial thinking on why I like Hackett more (at this point at least) is based on the following:

 

Through Week 13, Hackett played in 2 fewer games (10) than Burleson (12). Yet, Hackett has been targeted more times (37) than Burleson (28). Hackett has a better reception ratio (70.27%) than Burleson (50%). Hackett also 2 TDs; Buleson, only 1. Their YPC are about the same, though Hackett's is slightly better (12.3 v. 12.1). Burleson is active on special teams, so that's cool if you get indivdual points in the return game. The only other thing going for Burleson is that he is a more frequent red zone target (5 times to Hackett's 2). (Sorry, didn't have time to roll Week 14's stats in there, but sufficie it to say both Hackett and Burleson scored. Hackett just go 3 more receptions and a butt-load more yardage).

 

Against my frequently suspect Forty Niners, either one of them could do well. Obviously, use your own judgment. But unless some Seattle homers (or anyone, really) can share additional insight, or the coming week brings more news we can use, I'm leaning towards Hackett right now. But it's still real early in the week, so we'll just have to see.

I have those guys on one of my teams and I have playoffs this week. :D

Engram says he will play

 

IMO, I'd stay away from all Hawk WR's but Branch. Engram may contribute decent FF #'s but its hard to say, he will be a force down the stretch if DJax stays out.

 

this is great news as my opponent has Hasselbeck..

 

 

I don't really see Hass's #'s dropping that much, because of Djax's injury. Hass has spent virtaully 2 full seasons now with top WR options (including DJax for a large chunck last year) out due to injury. His rustiness from the knee injury earlier this year is a bigger obstacle to me. Also, San Fran doesn't have the best pass defense.
