FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE:
Starvin Marvin & Friends (Week 9)
BEAST DOME NATION.
I am going to make BEAST DOME the Fantasy Sports site that analyzes articles from other major sites and give my take. This week, I am going to review the Bleacher Report’s Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 9 article written by David Daniels.
DAVID DANIEL’S WAIVER WIRE WEEK 9 ARTICLE MUST OWN PLAYERS
DAVID says there are 4 Players that Are Must-Own off the Wire.
I will give my Take on each player he suggests.
4. ANDRE ELLINGTON – ARI
Ellington broke out with some big runs on Sunday including an 80 Yard TD scamper. He showed burst and explosiveness, something that you want from your Fantasy RB. While all of this sounds good.
ANDRE ELLINGTON IS NOT MUST-OWN
Bruce Arians loves Rashard Mendenhall from his Steeler days as the Offensive Coordinator. Mendenhall is running very fresh this season and has show occasional burst. The Cardinals played a very rough part of their schedule which included two of the top Defenses in the NFL (Seattle and SF). Mendenhall did not look all that horrible from a RB standpoint and because he was banged up, Ellington had his chance to put on a show.
Bruce Arians has already declined to give the keys to Ellington, mainly because he really does like Rashard Mendenhall and has seen him make the Steelers offense what it was back in the Superbowl glory days. Rashard is the guy for Arizona, you do not have to own Andre Ellington.
3. KENNY STILLS – NO
Still is a pure deep threat. With Jimmy Graham playing only a handful of snaps, Stills had his chances for increased targets this week. His increased targets ranged to 4 Total, and two of those 4 Targets ended up being long TD passes. Drew Brees did not get anything from Marques, and used Lance Moore very sparingly. Stash in the fact that Robert Meachem is the exact same player, and Jimmy Graham will be playing his normal snap count soon. You have yourself a classic Flue.
KENNY STILL IS NOT MUST-OWN
2. JASON CAMPBELL – CLE
How many times have we seen Jason Campbell have a good game, only to have a lot of below average games to follow. Yes I will give Campbell credit for having a great game against the Chiefs.
I will also say the chances of Jason Campbell having a better game than his less than 300 Yards and 2 TDs is not realistic. It may happen, but to plan for that is really taking a chance.
I would not use Campbell as a Starting QB in 12 Man Leagues. He may be a good bye week replacement in 14 Team Leagues, but that is just about it.
If you plan on using Jason Campbell against the Ravens, your team is heading for a loss.
JASON CAMPBELL IS NOT MUST-OWN
1. MARVIN JONES – CIN
If you played Marvin Jones in Daily Fantasy Football. You got a lot more than you could ever expect. 4 TDs is something that even a star RB like Adrian Peterson or even star WR like Calvin Johnson are never supposed to do. But a player who played about 30% of the teams offensive snaps ended up with 4 of them.
While the 4 TD game could leave a lingering effect of happiness. It will also lead you to believe, this was a fluke.
1) Andy Dalton does not throw for 5 TDs often/ever.
2) AJ Green did not get a TD. He usually gets his before anybody else.
3) Andy Dalton threw for 5 TDs.
Take this game with a grain of salt and a stroke of luck. There is no way you should be starting Marvin Jones in anything less than 16 Team Leagues.
MARVIN JONES IS NOT MUST-OWN
