2012 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – Week 2

Sep 10, 2012

There were some unusual heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
Blaine Gabbert, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
He continued to look like a different quarterback, completing 23 of 39 passes for 260 yards and two TDs. He didn’t throw a pick. I wouldn’t own him now, but at least he could have some use when the bye weeks roll around.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Mark Sanchez, QB, New York Jets
So much for the preseason offensive woes. Sanchez tossed three TDs and 266 yards. Tebow didn’t attempt a pass. Though his job is safe, I still wouldn’t want him on my fantasy team.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Dexter McCluster, RB/WR, Kansas City Chiefs
He led the team with ten targets, catching six passes for 82 yards. He has use in PPR leagues.
Ruling:  Get ‘em – PPR Leagues
Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins
There’s no telling that his job is safe given Shanahan’s running back history, but his 28 carries for 96 yards and two TDs have him safe for now.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Brandon Gibson, WR, St. Louis Rams
Caught four passes on five targets for 51 yards and a score. I don’t trust the Rams’ passing attack.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Stephen Hill, WR, New York Jets
He’s a freak athlete and blew up with five catches (six targets) for 89 yards and two scores. He’ll be inconsistent, but he should be considered for fantasy teams.
Ruling:  Get ‘em if you have someone expendable.
Alshon Jeffrey, WR, Chicago Bears
Caught three passes on five targets for 80 yards and a score. He has some upside as WR depth.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
James Jones, WR, Green Bay Packers
Caught four passes for 81 yards and a score. He was the least targeted of the Packers’ WRs. He’ll  have solid games, but will be inconsistent.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Jeremy Kerley, WR, New York Jets
Had four catches for 45 yards and a score to go with a punt return for TD. Look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Kevin Ogletree, WR, Dallas Cowboys
He won’t always be the brightest star in Dallas, but they way he opened the season, coming off the out-of-nowhere success that Laurent Robinson had last year, he should very much be on your radar.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Randy Moss, WR, San Francisco 49ers
Moss returned with four catches, 47 yards, and a score. With his ability to score, he’s worth owning>
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Andre Roberts, WR, Arizona Cardinals
Roberts caught five passes (nine targets) for 54 yards and a TD. I’d hold off on adding him as the Cardinals are a mess offensively.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Aldrick Robinson, WR, Washington Redskins
Robinson caught four passes for 52 yards and a score. I’d leave him on the wires for now.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Cecil Shorts, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Had four catches on seven targets for 74 yards and a score. I wouldn’t drop anybody I drafted for him.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
Martellus Bennett, TE, New York Giants
Caught four passes for 40 yards and a score. He could be on the verge of a solid season, but with the TE depth, I’d probably just monitor him at this point.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

    Kind of a mixed bag. I’d maybe try to package a couple for an upgrade. I suppose Holmes would be first on my list.

    Hold on to Olsen at tight end or pickup Fleener / Rudolph? Who has the highest ceiling for the rest of the year of the 3? Thank you.

    With that many options available I would probably go Fleener.
