Tag Archives: Blaine Gabbert


Every week I will take a look at the rookie play to gage how some of the rookies were used.  I will then try to decide if you should pick these rookies up from your waiver wire or attempt to secure them in a trade.

Blaine Gabbert is not a good #2 QB now and has very little help other than MJD. I realize he has found Jason Hill for touchdowns in back to back
weeks. Gabbert has issues reading pressure as he is always feeling it regardless of situation.  Marcedes Lewis needs to step up to his 2010 form as Gabbert needs another reliable receiver. I haven’t given up hope, but the hope is not for 2011.

Christian Ponder finished the night for the Vikings with 9-17 attempts for 99 yards all in the 4th quarter.  He was very mobile and at least 3 of those attempts were drops by the Vikings receivers.  Ponder seemed to bond with Percy Harvin especially.  I really liked his mobility and he was willing to throw the ball down the field.  I’m excited about Ponder in the second half of the season.

The Jags, finally, decided to make a move towards a quarterback of the future in the 2011 NFL Draft.  David Garrard continues to be a fighter, but he is an adequate leader putting up mediocre numbers.  Maurice Jones-Drew’s efforts to keep on playing on one good leg (showing tremendous heart) could not bring Jacksonville a division title.  If not for MJD and the huge year from TE Marcedes Lewis (rewarded with a new contract worth $35 million over 5 years), I doubt if the Jags would have been so close to defeating the Indianapolis Colts for the AFC South Division crown.  Gabbert is already being compared to Ben Roethlisberger in the media, let’s slow that down a bit.

In my earlier Dynasty Buy Low articles, I mentioned with the NFL season looking closer to being resolved by mid July, it is time to get your shovels out to start digging for dynasty gold.  I am discussing five QBs that could be on your waiver wire (maybe two of them) or available for a cheap trade (very likely) that can help you improve your dynasty team’s depth.  QBs are the hardest position, because it seems an owner has to use the most patience with them aka hold them for longer than you want.

Once again, before the impending CBA court decision and NFL Draft, I thought it was time to put my thoughts on the incoming rookie class. You will notice some of the player ranking have changed. Lots of new information and misinformation which is the norm during these last several weeks before the draft. These are my thoughts and feelings on how I rank rookies in PPR dynasty rookie drafts. My rankings were influenced by: Greg Cosell, Matt Waldman, Joe Everett, Jim Day, and Shane P. Hallam. In addition I have spent many hours of research watching everything I could on these players. Please use this to help your team maneuver around your rookie and dynasty drafts.

Here are your Top 30 skill position players. Enjoy!

Some dynasty players may think this is the quietest time of the year.  Do not let that be you!  Use this time to get a leg up on your competition by starting your own rookie scouting.  First I am no “expert” but I am getting my first impressions on players.  Small differences may make the difference between drafting LeSean McCoy and Chris “Beanie” Wells.
