Mark Clayton- a Fantasy Sleeper? Bush is BACK!

In fantasy play you have to gamble. Mark Clayton just fell into the perfect situation. He was a disappointment in Baltimore- NO DOUBT. Landing in St Louis might rejuvenate his career. Laurent Robinson is the #1WR in STL by default since Donnie Avery is done for the year. Amendola showed sparks of  fantasy interest last year but other then Amendola and Robinson the Rams have NOTHING. That is until today with the signing of Mark Clayton. He is an NFL veteren with minimal success. His stats last year do not blow you away – 34 catches, 480 yards, and 2 TDs. Moving over to STL where is only competition is Robinson, Avery, and Gilyard? Laughable. He will be their #1 WR by week 6. This also helps Sam Bradford develop into a legit QB at the NFL level. At least he has a shot now to actually complete some passes. I am very curious to see how Bradford and Clayton connect.  If they find mojo you may see them both looking groovy on Sportscenter.

This is a situation that I will watch closely. Clayton isn’t worth picking up at this point. He is worth keeping an eye on and if he gains some traction he will be a waiver play. I would be pleased if he finishes the year with 600 yards and 4 TDs. That would at least qualify for a bench spot on a fantasy roster. He has greater upside then this but I would be a fool if I were to project 700 yards and 7 TDs. Or would I? The fantasy gods will decide soon enough.

On a side note Julius Jones is back from the fantasy graveyard. Looks like Seattle cut him just to save some dollars. They signed him back on the cheap. So he is the #3 RB. Forsett is starting week 1 and Washington will get some touches and play special teams.

Michael Bush may not be out for 4 weeks after all. They say he has a smaller “wrap” and may be able to go week 1. This is good news for Bush owners. I still take a cautious approach. Keep reading to make sure that he is truly going to play week 1.

MJD is back at practice and my heartburn is going away. Feel confident to start him week 1. He is a great play against the lowly Broncos.

Dixon has won the starting job as QB in PIT. I give Tomlin tons of credit here. I didn’t think he had the balls to start Dixon. Tommy you manned up! MAD PROPS! Dixon gives the Steelers the best chance to win. I feel this is an upgrade for Mendy and may hurt Ward every so slightly as they may dial back the passing plays.

Scotty is covering the gab tomorrow so give him some love. We also sponsored a podcast from  fftoolbox so I welcome the new readers! Get ready to enjoy flukie’s random fantasy fibbets! They are truly priceless.
