Brandon Lloyd

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Mike Wallace, Eric Decker, Torrey Smith, or Brandon Lloyd?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 15th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which 2 wide receivers should I start in week 2?

Mike Wallace vs NYJ
Eric Decker @ ATL
Torrey Smith @PHI
Brandon Lloyd vs. ARI

Answer:

Very nice group of wide receivers. Who did you take in the first 3 rounds? It looks like you got your QB and 2 RBs early and then went WR, WR, WR, WR and got a mighty fine set of receivers to work with.

I like Brandon Lloyd and Eric Decker this week.  The Pats should be able to score a ton of points at home against the Cardinals and hopefully Tom Brady looks Lloyd’s way in the endzone rather than the tight ends he typically looks to. I wasn’t high on Lloyd coming into this season since he’s Brady’s fourth option after Gronkowski, Herandnez, and Welker, but he still managed 5 receptions for 69 yards in week 1.

I also like Eric Decker due to his matchup against the Falcons. This game should be an offensive shootout and Manning will come out throwing to keep up with the Falcons high octane offense.

I love Torrey Smith and have him drafted on two of my teams as my WR3. He’ll be covered by Nnamdi Asomugha or Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie, so that will be a tough matchup for him.

The good news for Mike Wallace is that Darrell Revis is likely out this week with a concussion.

Good luck!…

Who To Draft: Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski? (2012)

Posted by in Who To Draft on August 27th, 2012 | Comment »

Jimmy Graham vs. Rob GronkowskiWhich TE do I draft first? Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski?

I expect Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski to go in the beginning of round 2. I think these players do deserve to go where they’re getting drafting. A lot of people are saying these players are getting overdrafted. I disagree. After Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Julio Jones, I put both Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham over any other wide receiver. Both will have over 1,200 receiving yards and at least 8 TDs.  In 2011, both Graham and Gronkowski had over 1,300 receiving yards and over 10 TDs. Gronkowski edged Graham out in both categories: 1,327 yards and 17 TDs compared to 1,310 yards and 11 TDs.

2011 Statistics

ROB GRONKOWSKI (16 games)
90 receptions, 1,327 yards, 17 TDs (124 targets)

JIMMY GRAHAM (16 games)
99 receptions, 1,310 yards, 11 TDs, (149 targets)

2012 Fantasy Rankings

NFL.com’s composite rankings has Ron Gronkowski ranked #13 and Jimmy Graham ranked #15 with Julio Jones in between. Yahoo has Jimmy Graham ranked #11 and Rob Gronkowski #13 with Larry Fitzgerald in between. Very interesting.

2012 Fantasy Outlook

The bottom line is you can’t miss with either of these guys with an early second round pick. You have to take them over the top WR and RB in the next class after the top 5 RBs, top 5 QBs, and top 3 WRs are off the board. If you’re sitting with the #14 or #15 pick in your fantasy draft, if Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski are there, you take them. I have them ranked #10 and #11 after Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson followed by Larry Fitzgerald and Julio Jones.

You can even make the debate that one of these guys is …

Week 11 – WR – Miles Austin, Anquan Boldin, or Brandon Lloyd?

Posted by in NFL Week 11 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on November 21st, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question: Which 3 wide receivers would you play in week 11?

I need to start 3 of these 4.

Miles Austin vs. DET
Anquan Boldin vs. CAR
Greg Jennings vs. MIN
Brandon Lloyd vs. SD

Right now I’ve got Miles Austin on my bench, but who would you bench?

Best answer:

You have a great set of wide receivers with good matchups.  I like Miles Austin, Greg Jennings, and Brandon Lloyd. Anquan Boldin hasn’t impressed me much this year. He gets his touches but Torrey Smith is the Ravens wideout that I would want on my team. Brandon Lloyd could have a big game against SD. I say you bench Boldin or Lloyd, but definitely start Miles Austin against Detroit.

Week 4 – WR Start/Sit – Marques Colston, Brandon Lloyd, or Nate Washington?

Posted by in NFL Week 4 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 5th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: Do I start or sit Marques Colston in week 4?

Im currently starting Brandon Lloyd, Roddy White, and Nate Washington. I just picked up Marques Colston. Would you start him over one of my starting wide receivers or would you give him another week?

Answer:

You have a nice wide receiver corp. Colston has been out with a fractured collar bone for a while and may seem a bit soft at first. Give him a week to get back to full strength. I’m looking for him to put up big numbers later in the season.

Week 2 – Start/Sit – Peterson or Jones-Drew? Harvin or Holmes?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 18th, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: I need help picking my RB and WR in Week 2?

Start 2 of:
Adrian Peterson
Maurice Jones-Drew
Beanie Wells
Fred Jackson
Ryan Grant
Pierre Thomas

Start 3 of:
Brandon Lloyd
Brandon Marshall
Percy Harvin
Santonio Holmes

Answer:

Adrian Peterson – For obvious reasons.

Fred Jackson – He has a great matchup against Oakland and should put up big numbers. He looked great last week.

Out of the WR, I would sit Percey Harvin because I believe that Harvin isn’t able to put up consistent numbers yet.  The other three should be able to put up good numbers.  And this is coming from a Vikings fan!

Do not start Maucine Jones-Drew with Mercedes Lewis hurt along with the Jaguars other primary reciever. The Jets can just stack the box and shut down Jones-Drew. I would not be surprised if the Jets completely shut down the Jaguars.…

Week 6 – WR – Mike Wallace or Eddie Royal?

Posted by in NFL Week 6 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 16th, 2010 | 4 Comments

Question: Which WR would you go with in Week 6?

I have the following wide receivers:

Reggie Wayne (@ WASH)
Randy Moss (vs. DAL)
Mike Wallace (vs. CLE)
Eddie Royal (vs. NYJ)
Brandon Tate (vs. BAL)

I’m in a 10 team league and have 4-1 record.

Reggie Wayne and Randy Moss pretty much are must start right now for me, unless you convince me otherwise.

My WR3 option is where I need help. With Denver playing the Jets, it should open up the slot for Royal much like it opened it up for Harvin. It would leave Lloyd covered deep and Revis potentially out. Wallace is getting Big Ben back and playing a poor Cleveland Team. Wallace is poised to see the biggest upside with Big Ben coming back. Tate is supposed to be featured a lot more with Moss exiting to Minnesota. But the addition of Dion Branch is a little concerning.

Answer:

Eddie Royal should get a lot of looks with Brandon Lloyd being covered by Cromartie and Mike Wallace should become productive again with Big Ben back. I don’t think you can go wrong with either one. However, I would go with Mike Wallace since Cleveland’s defense is a complete joke.
