The guy is a beast. But, if he doesn't get fed, the beast will never eat. Its killing me!

I'm thinking soon, he'll no longer be considered a FF starter. :Drink)

Hold your horses there pardner! :)

Yes Kolb isnt the answer. In fact in an industry draft i said to the guy picking Fitz (in the late 2nd i might add) that youd better hope Skelton starts. behind that line Kolb wont look good - tho tbf not many Qbs would ...

But that NEP secondary (whilst putrid imho) has players that can apply pressure in the front 7 of a VERY high caliber: Mayo, Spike, Hightower, Wilfork and Jones. No time in the pocket = no time to develop plays. Why do you think their TE had a banner day, as well as their secondary WR on shorter routes.

Last time i saw an average QB behind a line that bad it ended whatever career he may arguably have ever had (Edwards @ Bills).

He'll be fine, but his consistency is going to be alot more fluid than it used to be. If ARI dont draft OL early and often its going to be a long couple of seasons in the desert im afraid :(

He will NOT be fine. If you can sucker anyone stupid enough to take him off your hands, do so. 1 catch for 4 yards against one of the NFL's worst defenses == he won't do much of anything against anyone else.

I'd suggest moving him immediately and benching him for anyone else in the interim.

He's absolutely no longer ASYS material.

I'd add Colston to this list too. 2 weeks in a row he's been involved in shootouts and done almost nothing both games. There are many other WRs who will be better starts.

Who said ASYS here? :-k

He said no longer considered a starter & talking about benching him indefinitely ("no longer considered a starter")?

So no good in the RZ? Not sure there are many better at running a successful fade on the GL.

I havent drafted him any redrafts for precisely this reason, he'll fluctuate too much and not often enough but in dynas theres no way id sell. Sit tight, let the OL get retooled. He'll be fine for years yet.

for those in redraft leagues, abort! abort! abort!

I don't judge whether or not to start a player in 2012 based on what he did in years past. He'll be good for 2-3 games this year - the rest of the time, he'll put up bum-worthy numbers.

IMO Fitz has not been as effective since Boldin left for Baltimore. Looks like other FF owners are finally catching up with my way of thinking.

Completely agree- at this point I would rather have an Amendola because while not spectacular (except today), you can count on consistent points in PPR.

Or for Kolb to get hit by a bus... I kid I kid, mostly, I mean a mini van would be enough.

Umm... not to speak out of turn, but... he's an awesome athlete, but he hasn't been more than an average fantasy WR since Warner left. Why he's still a top WR on lists on draft day, year after year, is a mystery to me.

He's finished 8th and 4th in WR scoring since Warner left, but whatever.

I only own him in a Dynasty, I wouldn't pay the price to take him in a redraft.

In my main league, 1 PPR, he finished 11th in 2010 and 7th in 2011 in WR total points scored. So to say he's only been average since Warner retired is a bit of a stretch IMO.

So this year has been a bit of a let down so far to be sure.

I stand corrected.

Not to infuriate the L Fitz crowd, but if he had a decent QB throwing to him over the years, he'd be off the charts.
