Tyvon Branch Knee Injury

Postby motherlode » Fri Nov 10, 2017 6:41 am

The injury looked like it could be pretty serious.....It looks like both Antoine Bethea (5 solos and a sack) and Budda Baker (8 solos, 1 asst) got some PT filling in for him. If Branch is out any length of time, are either of these guys worth owning? If Branch is out for the season, is he worth a roster spot, or is he droppable?

ACL. Branch is done for the year.

Bethea will probably begin playing every snap now, and Baker becomes a high ceiling DB2

Would you guys hold him if you didn't have a IR spot for him?

Nope. Unless it's Reshad Jones, Landon Collins, etc then no need.

Malcom Jenkins, Corey Graham, Devin Mccourty, David Bruton, the list goes on and on with safeties who have put up amazing DB1 seasons and then fell back to earth. It's all about the right scheme for that year.

Really depends on league depth and what is on waivers. If Kerwynn Williams and Bobby Rainey are the top scoring RBs on waivers and Bernard Reedy and Dwayne Harris are the top scoring WRs and the top actually playing safeties are guys like Maurice Smith and Eddie Pleasent and I would probably stick with Branch. He has a better chance at value than those guys from what I can see. If you are looking at a WR who will actually see a few targets or a safety who could see real snaps then I would probably drop him for them.

I suppose, but Branch was a stud this year due to AZ's scheme (as is typical in IDP fantasy), so who knows if he will even be relevant again. He's not young, and he hasn't been a beacon of statistical goodness throughout his career. He could be David Bruton 2.0 by the 2018 season.

Just sitting on waivers. Not sure how that happened. Picked him up and played him. High risk high reward.

An owner in my league, who is out of the playoffs has Betha and Baker. I think I could get one of them for a low price. Is Baker the better guy to have or is it Betha who is in Branch's position?

I'm running Landon Collins and Tavon Wilson. I would most likely slot one of these guys in over Wilson.
