Need a WR and it's slim pickings

Recommended Posts

Starting Steve Smith and Kevin Walter with Roy out on bye, Galloway and Patten hurt. My options in FA are

 

Henderson v SF

Moore v SF

Reed @STL

Josh Morgan @NO

Greg Lewis @CHI

Jordy Nelson @TB

Miles Austin v WAS

 

It's very slim pickings and I like Henderson, Moore, or Reed the best. Between the NO guys I'd probably go with Moore. Reed stepped up last week and with Parrish out he could be in line for a better game against STL.

 

Meachem and Hardy are not available

Since you didn't mention Meachem in that group, I'll assume he is not available...w/the Saints, though, you never know which WR (except when Colston is healthy) is going to be "the guy" on any given week (great for Brees, bad for fantasy owners)...anyway, I've read that Hardy is going to take up Parrish's slack in BUF, and that w/James Jones lingering knee problem that Nelson will be the #3 in GB behind Jennings and Driver...given that, I might (myself, too) take a flyer on him over the other guys you've listed (except, if for some reason you accidentally left Meachem out and Hardy is no longer available, either)...hope this helps...good luck...

Then, as I indicated, I would take a flyer on Nelson as even the #3 in GB should have some value the way Rodgers has shown that he can sling it around just like Brett...

Matt Jones? I'd roll with him before most or all on your list. I'd put Reed and Moore at the top of your list and not much different than Jones. Maybe higher upside but bigger risk as well, imo.

matt jones is gone too. All that is left that has any potential I've listed.

 

James Jones is there too.

 

I have Brees for those that like "double pts"

It's a toss up between Reed and Moore. I think I'd go with Reed. NO still has Reggie Bush to pick up the slack.

Go with Reed vs. the hapless Rams. The Rams are imploding and Reed is a reciever that gets a lot of looks in that offense.

 

Thanks for answering my post.

REED FOR SURE. THE BILLS ARE HOT AND THE RAMS ARE NOT ESPICALLY ON DEF.

Thanks for answering my post. I happen to agree with some of the last posters that Reed might be the best of the worst. Don't beat yourself up if Henderson has a big game because he's always all or nothing - if you decide to go with a NO receiver, I'd go with Moore.

 

Lewis will probably suffer if McNabb is out, and Morgan while a possible just has to be on your bench for now....most likely even with Bryant out.

I would keep an eye on the situation in SF because Bryant Johnson is probably not gonna play.

Which means in steps Josh Morgan, it's a chance but I think ur takin one with any of these guys,

namely any wr on NO. Henderson usually has 1catch sometimes for TD, other times not so much.

And Moore to me is eh..

In regards to Josh Reed, I think Buffalo just gonna pound the ball on the ground most of the

day but we'll see. Just my opinion.

Thanks guys, I'm looking soley at Reed vs Moore now and beating myself up over it.

 

Moore had a ton of targets but NO is always a crapshoot. Not sure if Buffalo will even need to throw that much against STL

 

Right now I'm leaning towards Moore....appreciate any more thoughts

I love Reed this week and wish I grabbed when I had the chance. I think he'll definitely put up some good numbers and score this week.

Josh Morgan @NO for this week and be on. He has been hurt and I think you will start to see him getting more involved in the offense now that he is getting healthier

 

Can you answer my post.
