Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em Week 2

Sep 15, 2008

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.

QB
Jason Campbell – After the awful Week 1 owners couldn’t wait to get themselves as far from Jason Campbell as possible.  How did he respond?  He completed 66.7% of his passes for 321 yards and a score.  He’s not going to do that again, but he proved he could be used in certain matchups. 
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

RBs
Darren Sproles - LT is banged up.  Sproles looked dynamite this week going for 125 yards of total offense and a score.  He also took a Kick Return to the house.  If LT is unable to go next week, you’re sitting on fantasy gold.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

LaMont Jordan – When Maroney got banged up, Jordan used his opportunity to show his worth.  He responded with 62 tough yards.  If Maroney were to sustain a more serious injury he’d be worth a look, but right now their backfield is too crowded for fantasy excellence.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

WRs
Isaac Bruce/Bryant Johnson- This one-two punch looked pretty good for the 49ers.  Bruce went for 153 yarsds while Johnson grabbed 6 passes for 78 yards and a score.  They are in Martz’s system so they both could be used under the right circumstances.
Ruling: Get ‘em.

Chansi Stuckey – He’s scored in both games so far, but I could have ran the route and caught the TD he had this week. It’s nice to see he doubled his receptions this week, but he only gained 43 yards. Favre hasn’t shown one go-to-guy thus far so I’d stay away for now.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.

TE
John Carlson - Last week’s picks were duds, but I’ll stick my neck out for Carlson.  The Seahawks are going to pass, but they don’t have many targets.  Carlson is a big one.  He hauled in 6 passes for 78 yards. 
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

There you have it.  I hope I provided you some good info while you make your fantasy team waiver wire adjustments.
