The Wire Troll: Kyle Orton Making the Cowboys Jealous

The mistakes we make are far more trivial than the life we lead outside the Fantasy realm. Yet, with sword unsheathed and no shield to be found we battle on through nightmarish Sundays and micro managing Mondays. We know the stress you feel is probably as tangled as the metaphors we use, so relax in your favourite chair and read our Wire Troll picks for Week 10.

Bye Weeks: Indianapolis, Minnesota, Washington, Houston, New England, San Diego

QUARTERBACKS

Zach Mettenberger, Tennessee Titans: What’s this? Another rookie QB? It seems Mettenberger got more press for his selfies than he did for his nearly 300 passing yards vs. the Texans in his first career start. We know the Titans are not a great team, but what they are is a bunch of cats with enough experience to make them potentially dangerous. They do a great job of spreading the ball around and while that may suck for owners of guys like Bishop Sankey and Justin Hunter, it makes their trigger man Mettenberger alluring. You better learn how to pronounce this young QB’s name. Need help? Check the video below.

Kyle Orton, Buffalo Bills: In his last start before the bye, Orton was 10-for-17 passing. Not impressed, are you? Well, he also threw four TDs passes. The Bills were playing the Jets, but consider the experience level and maturity Orton has and you will realize no other free agent in your league can bring that to the table.

RUNNING BACKS

Terrance West, Cleveland Browns: So there’s this movie called Cop Out with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan and it’s not very good. Somehow it’s more laughable than the Browns RBBC trio. For some reason Cleveland decided to give West the bulk of carries versus the vaunted (clearly joking) Tampa Defense. Isaiah Crowell did not get anywhere near the pigskin and Ben Tate was largely ineffective. So basically they are roster-worthy players to start in a pinch. West is owned the least, so snag him with the same nails you are using to try to claw your way up through the standings with, as Cleveland is apparently taking turns spreading the wealth of touches around.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Stevie Johnson, San Francisco 49ers: Do we really need to sell you on Johnson? You know he is skilled and Anquan Boldin as well as Michael Crabtree just aid his openness. Trading for Johnson was a win now move for the 49ers and now they are .500 team. Look for an all hands on deck situation moving forward and even though Johnson might be the third or fourth wheel, he will still be needed.

Andre Roberts, Washington Redskins: Among a gaggle of speedy flashes like WR DeSean Jackson and powerful RB Alfred Morris, stands a 5′11″ pillar of grit named Andre Roberts. When the Redskins signed Roberts last spring, it wasn’t to be their Megatron. Roberts has played second or third fiddle before. But, trust us we say he is still a bow-worthy music maker.

TIGHT END

Andrew Quarless, Green Bay Packers: Why in the name of anti-freezing tundra coils are we recommending Quarless? He has not received more than five targets or gained more than 43 yards in any one game this season. He does have two scores on the year and last season when Jermichael Finley almost died on the field, Quarless became a contributing cog. The Pack brought in bodies this offseason to push Quarless and he has put his head down and worked hard. Aaron Rodgers trusts the veteran TE and so should you as this final week of byes ticks away.

The Wire Troll: James Reimer Poised to Steal Starts

November 2, 2014 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
Fantasy GMs would be smart to jump on this guy, especially in competitive leagues with lots of teams. In 11 games with the Leafs this season, Winnik has a goal, seven points, a plus-7 rating and 16 shots. He’s playing on the top line and the Leafs have started to string some wins together, so he’ll have plenty of opportunity to produce for the time being.

The Wire Troll: Alley-oop to Martavis Bryant

October 28, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments Comments Off
Home sweet home may be the early moniker of Bridgewater’s career. Now with a road win under his belt he will return home to face an overhyped Redskin team, which will probably be sluggish and possibly still hungover from Monday’s monumental win at Dallas. Bridgewater, who threw to 10 receivers in Sunday’s win at Tampa, understands the importance of checking down.
