I’m not able to post here as much during the season, since the whole site is basically my blog, but I want to chime in here once a while.
Last week I picked up Brandon Lloyd in four leagues. That’s great, but I failed in in three others, purely out of laziness because I was obviously on him. I’m buried on the WW order so I’m screwed in those leagues. I have to say, I’ve been really, really impressed with Lloyd. He’s commanding the ball, making big plays, catching everything in sight, and he’s actually looking like THE pickup of the year so far at the WR position. Given his familiarity with Ron Turner’s offense, the solid game he possesses, and the role he’s cemented as the #1, I really think this production could continue. He’s not big or fast, but he simply makes plays, and he has a knack for making acrobatic catches.
He’s one of the few players standing out so far, in addition to perhaps J.T. O’Sullivan, who is standing out as a savior pickup. That is, you have a struggling starter and you pick up Lloyd and he saves you.
