Derek Anderson- One Year Wonder??

16 posts in this topic

Well, fantasy players and others- what do you guys think? I wasted a draft pick on him this season for fantasy, and he is sure turning out to be a turkey. I picked up Trent Edwards and started him this past weekend and benched Anderson. The Chiefs were inquiring about a trade for Quinn, but the Browns shot them down, makes me think he will be playing before too long. One weeks bad play I don't really blame on Anderson- there were 50+ MPH winds, and Braylon Edwards has dropped a ton of balls this year (again). Was last year a fluke?

Last year we had one of the easiest schedules and this year we have one of the hardest. Romeo has got to go!

I wasted a 3rd rd pick on this guy. Only reason I took him is everyone in the league was starting to take QB'S and I wanted a good one, boy that was a mistake. It also doesnt help that Edwards and company cant catch a pass either.

It's the old sophomore jinx. Some guys can play out of it and others it ruins...remember Scott Mitchell??

Be patient with him, it is only week 3 of a 16 week season; start getting nervous if his poor play continues Cincinnati this Sunday.

CNY- I am too lazy to look it up, but you might know- what was his deal worth and how long are the Browns on the hook for with him? Maybe they shoulda told KC that he is available, but not Quinn.

I'm in the same boat as you fella's. I nabbed him up as my primary QB. However, with the matchups he's had thus far, I've went with my #2 option. Kitna...I've lucked out as his fantasy numbers have been better than Anderson's. But I agree...it is only wk #3 and I look forward to him getting better and better as we go here. Or at least that is my wishful thinking.

I have to give him some benefit of the doubt!

Week 1 - Dallas

Week 2 - Pittsburgh (Horrible weather)

Week 3 - Ravens

Very tough defenses to face!

Week 4 - Bengals - I am predicting a break out week

You might take him over T-Jack if they were both being paid the same but Anderson just signed a huge extension last year and is going to prove to be a bigger bust than T-Jack ever will.

they've played: dallas, Pitt, and Baltimore. that's two outstanding defenses and a pretty good one in dallas too.

its a result of defenses more than anything. i dont have him on any teams, but if i did i wouldn't be overly concerned yet. if he lays an egg against cinci though, then its panic time

lol...i'd take anderson over tjunk anyday...i don't care if tjunk was on sale for $1.

you guys are talkin about him playing a couple of the toughest defenses in the league and his wr's are dropping mad balls and td catches to top it all off.

if you were in my league i'd tell you he is junk so you would drop him...i love this time of year when people drop good guys because of a bad game or two...peyton manning and carson palmer haven't done much either...u guys should drop them too.

i didn't get him in any leagues cause people took him way to early...i seen him goin before brees, mcnabb, rivers, rodgers, ect.

but i am [PoorWordUsage] about edwards since i have him lol...i expect both those guys to have a big week this week.

I am also starting to question his abilities as I too put my early qb pick on him. Thankfully I was able to pick up P Rivers just after week two. Benched Anderson last week and I think that's where he is going to stay for awhile.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
