Pick up Mewelde Moore & More

Excuse me for not posting here; it’s been a brutal week. This week is easily my least favorite of the year, but it’s almost over and soon we’ll settle into a routine and things will be more manageable.

Anyways, I wanted to chime in here quickly on Steeler RB Mewelde Moore. As you likely know, he was on the field exclusively late in their game Thursday night. That was revealing, and starter Willie Parker did not look good at all. As for Rashard Mendenhall, the team may have told us what they think of him by not playing him much in the opener. I still think he will have a large role if Parker is out of the mix – and that’s the only reason we kept him on our target list this summer (but we did downgrade him because he continued to leave us wanting more when he played).

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
