OK. i have alex smith and romo, tannehill is on my waiver wire.. who do i drop? smith?
Definitely Smith. If I was looking to build a playoff team, I'd want Smith to lead it, especially if I had the other pieces in place. But in fantasy, Romo has the potential for a lot of big games. Romo's put up three straight duds, but he's the kind of guy who will always get his numbers by the end of the season, so expect some big efforts soon.
I guess my problem is that I'm expecting too much. I'm expecting him to make up for the glaring deficiencies in the rest of my roster. Especially at QB.
Look at it like this. He's the leading RB scorer, and he hasn't even exploded for a huge game, yet. You might get that massive game this week. The Jets are awful.
Got an offer of getting Greg Jennings for my Antonio Gates. I have Bennett as my other TE and I know Jennings is not at 100% but should be back in a couple of weeks.
You've got a legitimate replacement in Bennett. He isn't as talented as Gates, but he gets a ton of redzone looks, and that Giant offense gets a lot of scoring chances. Jennings might be dealing with injuries right now, but he's the most talented receiver in one of the best passing offenses in the league.
