Hey there GHL faithful.
Some of you are aware of the majesty that is Advice Time. Others might be new here, so let's talk about it, shall we?
You have questions. Lineup, Waiver Wire, Trades, Who to Start, Who to Sit, Pick'em, Survival, etc. I've got answers.
Post your questions and hear back directly from me. (Take that Yahoo and ESPN)
I will do everything in my power to have your questions answered by Sunday.
Take Note: Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be able to answer any questions that are posted on Sundays. IF you do have one, Tweet it to me @godhateslosers and I'll do my best to get to it.
Ask early. Ask often. Ask away!
Now... onto that tricky Kevin Ogletree conundrum. Read more to see where I stand...
Here's the facts. Kevin Ogletree blew up last night. To the tune of 8 receptions, 114 yards and 2 touchdowns. He could very well end the week as the highest scoring fantasy wide receiver.
So why not jump on him? Allow me to play Devil's Advocate for a moment.
1) Before last night, you have likely never heard of him.
2) Last season he started the year as the number three WR for the Cowboys, but was overtaken immediately after they signed Laurent Robinson. A man off the street beat him in the position battle.
3) This is his 4th year in the NFL. Before last night's game, his career numbers were 25 receptions, 294 yards, and 0 touchdowns.
4) His performance last night resulted in more catches and yards than he accumulated in either of his first two years in the NFL.
5) In last night's game, the Giants were starting their 4th string cornerback. Who later left the game injured. Bringing in their 5th string corner.
Needless to say, the odds are stacked against him. He has Miles Austin and Dez Bryant ahead of him, so short of an injury,
he will never see time as a top two receiver for the Cowboys this year.
Damn he looked good.
We've seen it before. Victor Cruz comes to mind. Or the aforementioned Laurent Robinson. Every year someone pops up. Who am I to say that it will not be Kevin Ogletree?
So, simply, my advice is this. If you have someone droppable. Go for it.
If you are rocking four different receivers on your bench, go ahead. If you have a backup kicker or defense, shame on you, boot them. If you got stuck with an injured player or dud through an auto-draft, pick him up.
Its Week 1. And anything can happen. Welcome to fantasy football.
