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.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
