Its preseason but he's looked pretty good in the 1st 2 games. I think he might be worth a spot on the bench in deep leagues.

Absolutely. He won't put up major yards, but he has 2 decent TEs & a pass catching RB. Now if one of the WRs show up.....? Deep leagues take notice.

Pat Shurmur throws the ball a TON. The Rams were top 6 last year in pass attempts per game. Shurmur runs a West Coast scheme, and is a graduate of the Andy Reid "throw the ball on 3rd and 1" ideaology. Add to that the fact that Colt McCoy is a running QB, and I'm willing to take a chance on him as a QB2 in round 14.

Put me on the band wagon.

Perfect offense for him to thrive and mature in. If Little pans out and Hillis gets spelled. MIght be a decent year for my Browns :lock: Of course 8-8 would be decent year if judging against past years :D

Greg Little seems like a pretty good player and there is no real #1 WR over there...he might be a nice late round sleeper. Since I don't follow college, I don't know his game. Anyone have input regarding his strengths/weaknesses and potential in the NFL?

As an ex-UNC grad student, I've seen him play a fair bit. He's pretty big for a WR, and he was converted from runningback in college to WR. Great yards after the catch guy.

Problem is, he's having mental lapses in training camp so far. So I wouldn't move him far up your WR flier list yet.

Evan Moore looks like he can be a real weapon for McCoy. Should put up decent numbers. Very Pennington-like.

Dang...now they kind of have to trade him it would seem. Tough to say who might want him...KC maybe...I could see him beating out Cassel, mYBE. :unsure:

My immediate first thought would be Dallas giving up like a 5th rounder for Colt McCoy to come in as a great back up for Romo. Colt played at Texas and Dallas seems to always have crappy back up QB's whenver Romo is out a game or two.

Dallas addressed that spot by getting Orton this offseason.

Reports out there that GB has discussed interest in trading for him with the Browns.

For a 6th or 7th rounder...great move for GB to get him in with Rodgers, Clements, and McCarthy. Could become a solid backup and able to move him for a better pick in a year or two.
Anything more than a 6th...no thanks.
