Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Who are your other receivers? What other droppable players are on your roster?
I also dropped Danny Amendola for Ogletree in my 12-team PPR league. Similar reasoning to kelpbeds.
- I have decent WR depth (Julio Jones, Torrey Smith, Reggie Wayne, TB Mike Williams)
- Ogletree was an FA pickup that didn't cost me a waiver spot
- Ogletree, in my opinion, has a higher ceiling than Amendola (tied to a better quarterback; top receivers on team have injury histories)
- Guys like Austin Collie, Brandon LaFell, and Davone Bess (and maybe even Amendola) stand a greater chance of still being on the wire after waivers go through
- Amendola, in my opinion, has a safer floor (he seems to be Bradford's #1 WR target; the Rams horrible D will likely lead to lots of passing to stay in games)
- Ogletree is likely behind Austin, Bryant, Witten, and Murray in terms of offensive options (the question is if Romo can keep producing enough targets/yardage to make him roster-worthy)
For the moment, Ogletree will be riding my bench, keeping Amendola's spot warm. Best case scenario: This game was no fluke, and Ogletree turns out to be this year's Victor Cruz (or at the very least, the Cowboy's 2012 Laurent Robinson). Worst case scenario: Ogletree fades back into fantasy obscurity, I drop him, and pick up another bench WR/bye week starter.
I say yes!! collie is one big hit away from being out for the year he has had 3-4 concussions already. On the other hand Ogletree is the #3 in Dallas where L Robinson ate up the league and he should be getting single coverage on the field
