Larry Donnell - Anything to see here?

Postby WelkerTexasRanger » Wed Sep 10, 2014 2:55 pm

Expected there to five hype threads on him by now. He played 52 of 60 snaps (Robinson played 0) and caught 5 for 56 and a TD. He got two red zone targets too. I'm not saying he's magically going to be the next Jordan Cameron but certainly he looks at least a little promising. Thoughts? Anyone scooping him up?

Eli Manning has always boosted TEs a bit. If you want the next Kevin Boss, you've found him.

I'm trying to get him in all of my leagues. Eli had to dump it to Donnell often, and I think he'll continue to do just that. Could be a really sneaky play.

I think he could be a D Walker type of player....doesn't have top 10 upside but will be solid 12 -16

I think this is about right, but who the hell wants the next Kevin Boss, I sure know I don't. I don't think there is anything to see here.

I'd guess consistent mid to high end TE2 production.

If you're hurting at TE, then I don't see anything wrong with taking a chance on him. If you expect some kind of breakout then no, I wouldn't bother.

Had him rostered in a deep TE premium league knowing Eli's history of making nobody TE's fantasy viable.

Traded he and Josey today for two 3rds, a 4th, and Da'Rick Rogers.

Donnell will be a solid play this year IMO, but he lacks any real dynasty value. If you're competing this year, he's nice depth to have. Being able to plug in a double digit scoring TE in PPR leagues when you need it can definitely help. I think he'll continue to get a solid flow of targets. I could see a TE12-15 finish for him this year.

I liked our trade and I think it made sense. I basically paid to buy Scary Larry as a one year rental. As you said Eli makes no talent hack TEs a low end TE1. Although for a guy who doesnt have good workout numbers, I thought he looked surprisingly athletic.

With Jordan Reed out I'm left with rostering Niles Paul or Donnell. Any idea on which it should be?

WR - Michael Thomas, DeVante Parker, Tyrell Williams, Quincy Enunwa, Josh Doctson, Cooper Kupp, Josh Reynolds, Leonte Carroo, Rashard Higgins, Cameron Meredith, Adam Thielen, Krishawn Hogan, Charone Peake
TE - Martellus Bennett, Evan Engram, Clive Walford, Virgil Green

I grabbed him in a few leagues.

I like him as a TE2 for Bye weeks and such.

The Giants had him lined up on the outside in the red zone more than once. One of his touchdowns was a play specifically for him lined up against a cornerback on the outside. The Giants must have a lot of faith in him. Eli looks awful and I wouldn't be surprised if Donnell becomes Eli's go to safety throw.

Sadly that is my circumstance.
