The Wire Troll: Marcel Reece Be With You

The sensual smooth sounds of jazz are meant to relax the heart and warm the soul. If you are like us, your Fantasy season has probably been more frantic like the Queen classic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” We are not saying we’re a saxophone that anyone can play. We would prefer to be one of those old-time pianos that plays itself. Basically we strive to be music to your ears but you must realize that we are merely an orchestra pit to your chorus. Together the harmonies will flow as we present to you our Wire Troll picks for Week 13.

QUARTERBACK

Josh McCown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (CBS: 60 per cent; Yahoo: 33 per cent): We were all confused when Tampa made the move back to McCown. Now we view the benching of Mike Glennon as HC Lovie Smith trying to save face (Smith was certainly complimentary of McCown after the win over Washington in Week 11, as you can see in the video below). McCown is not a claim and start type player but he is a quality backup. If defenses ever solve the Mike Evans puzzle, McCown has Vincent Jackson and maturing TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins to lean on. McCown has been in this league a dozen years and you don’t stick around that long without being able to make adjustments. Three turnovers vs. his former team was merely a case of him pressing too hard and we don’t see a benching in his future for this season.

RUNNING BACKS

Marcel Reece, Oakland Raiders (CBS: 2 per cent; Yahoo: unowned): While Latavis Murray stole the show in the first half on Thursday before suffering a concussion, it was Reece leading the charge on the game-winning drive. It was back in 2012 that Reece was actually a Fantasy stud for a three-game stretch. He may be listed as a fullback but here’s hoping the Raiders realize he can contribute with quality touches. He does remind us of former Oakland TD vulture Zack Crockett but he also shows Tom Rathman-like traits with just a dash of Earl Campbell-like gusto. Nab Reece and hope you can start him in a week or so.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Chris Hogan, Buffalo Bills (CBS: 5 per cent; Yahoo: 2 per cent): We touched on Hogan on our Podcast two weeks ago and he has continued to be a reliable option. He is essentially QB Kyle Orton’s wingman. PPR alert: Prior to Monday’s two0catch performance (it seemed like everyone but Andre Reed got a target), Hogan had 25 receptions in just six games on the active roster. He is not going to pull in 10 receptions for 150 yards in single game anytime soon but in a pinch you could be rewarded. Dynasty owners take note as we could have a modern day Don Beebe brewing.

Kenny Stills, New Orleans Saints (CBS: 60 per cent; Yahoo: 33 per cent): We recommended Stills in our Wire Troll just over a month ago. Now rookie Brandin Cooks is done for the year and Stills is the next man up. His Monday stat line of eight receptions on nine targets for 98 yards should tickle your “entering the playoffs” ears. Only the almighty Jimmy Graham received more targets than Stills. Marques Colston is a turf cut away from making Stills WR1 in “The Big Easy.” Stills is not the biggest or faster WR there ever was, he is just a playmaker. Michael Floyd owners, we are looking at you! We know you don’t want to drop Floyd but are you seriously ever going to play him again?

TIGHT END

Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals (CBS: 19 per cent; Yahoo: 8 per cent): When Cincy drafted Tyler Eifert in 2013 it seemed Gresham’s days in Bengal stripes were numbered. My how this season has told a different tale. Eifert is currently on short-term IR and is expected to return, yet no prospective date has been named. Meanwhile Gresham has absorbed 38 receptions on 51 targets with a pair of TDs. In an offense that features superstar A.J. Green and the budding Mohamed Sanu, you can bet your snow shoveling duties Gresham sees single covers almost exclusively.

The Wire Troll: Rise of the Young Guns

November 23, 2014 | By Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
fter a slow start to the season, Bjugstad is establishing himself as one of the league’s hottest young goal scorers. In Week Six, the former University of Minnesota Golden Gopher standout put on a scoring clinic with five goals, eight points, a plus-6 rating, two power play points, a game-winning goal, 14 shots on goal, 34 face-offs won, five hits and five blocks. In 18 games, Bjugstad has seven goals, 11 points, 53 shots on goal and a plus-4 rating. If he’s on your waiver wire, seriously consider picking him up.

Video Game Review: Pro Evolution Soccer 2015

November 22, 2014 | By Quinn Potter | Comments Comments Off
While contrarian opinions existed, the critical consensus in recent years is that EA’s FIFA series has ruled the pitch. Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 looks to change all that with a huge step in the right direction for Konami as it tries to regain its dominant position in the world of virtual footie.

The Wire Troll: Brandan Wright Making a Play for More PT

November 22, 2014 | By RotoRob | Comments (2)
Brooks started Friday and put up his second straight 12-point effort thanks to a pair of treys. He’s recorded a steal in each of the last three games and given that he’s the only active PG in the Windy City right now, he’s worth playing until his teammates get healthy.

Start ‘em, Sit ‘em: Rashad Jennings is Hungry

November 20, 2014 | By Josh Johnson | Comments (2)
Facing one of the worst pass defenses in the league, Hilton is ready to forget last weekend’s loss and get back on track. Given the fact that the Colts average over 40 pass attempts a game, we think he could be a top three WR in Week 12.
