Scrub a Dub Dub A Few Receivers in the Tub

So lets look for a the scrubs that clean up nice in the bubble bath. Greg Little  is second in receptions for rookies (#1 is AJ Green). Little has been a bit erratic. He is only averaging 9.3 points in PPR. However, he has only been “officially” starting for 3 weeks now. In those three weeks he has scored 13, 8, and 6 pts in PPR. The Browns are so banged up at RB that Chris Ogbonnaya  is starting at tailback. Rumor out of Cleveland is that Josh Cribbs  will also line up in the backfield (if your desperate in a deep league Cribbs may be intriguing). Since Little is the only legit WR on the roster he will have the lion’s share of the targets. There is no doubt that Cleveland will be playing from behind against the potent Houston offense. So expect Little to rack up the points in garbage time. Little is a solid flex play while your regulars are on bye. He is my scrub play of the week.

I love Obi One. Every year around this time he shows up. I’m a big Ben Obomanu  hater. He screwed me in the fantasy playoffs last year with his erratic play. One week he puts up a goose egg and the next week he scores 15 points on 4 catchs and 107 yards. Only if you reach the point of desperation do I start Obi One. I would prefer to let him drown in the bubble bath. He is a definite nonstart. Now, if Sidney Rice goes down, then Obi becomes the winner of the wet duck award.

Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter —- These two underachievers make me want to scream. However, they are good enough for 10 points in PPR leagues if you need a bye week replacement. Neither are burners and neither are getting much separation. Without AJ in the lineup one would think they would have excelled. The only one who has stood out is Owen Daniels. Playing Jones and Walter is a case of Russian Roulette.  One of them will put up respectable numbers— just not sure which one.

The KC Chiefs have impressed me. Instead of collapsing with the loss of Jamaal Charles they have rallied and won 4 straight. Dwayne Bowe has woken up and drawn double coverage. Cassel has forced balls his way and by doing such this opens up the middle of the field for Steve “no knees” Breaston. An unforeseen benefit to this passing onslaught is the arrival of Jonathan Baldwin.  Against the Chargers he broke out and had 19 pts with 5 for 82 yards and a TD. There is a chance he could repeat that performance this week against Miami. However, I fear he could be another Torrey Smith so I wait for a second legit outing before I recommend him as a start. Baldwin has had a rough start to his NFL career after breaking his hand in a skirmish in the beginning of the year. Lets hope he learned something and he continues to produce on the field.

    Could not agree with you anymore about Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter. I’ve played their games in the past and i won’t mess with anymore. Jacoby Jones is a true underachiever.
