In every NFL season, there are a handful of Charles Von Nobodies who emerge from the ether to have huge fantasy football seasons. Last year, Victor Cruz salsa danced his way into the hearts of fantasy owners across the country, and it seems the 2012 season already has its first potential waiver wire gem.Dallas Cowboys’ third-string wide receiver, Kevin Ogletree, had a career game on Wednesday night when he tallied 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys’ 24-17 victory over the rival New York Giants. The question that remains to be answered is whether or not Ogletree’s game is a sign of things or come, or it is just another in a long line of fantasy fool’s gold.Why Ogletree Could Be The Real DealSeeing a 100+ yard game in the box score is always nice, but to gauge long-term success, we have to ask ourselves just how the receiver went about getting those 100 yards. Was it simply the case of an 85-yard bomb and a couple of measly check-down passes that got the player over the 100-y...

Dallas receiver Kevin Ogletree managed to change the focus of conversations from “The Cowboys don’t have a third receiver” to “This Ogletree kid looked awfully good. Should I pick him up on waivers for my fantasy team?”
(Eric Karabell at ESPN says yes to the last question. I own Miles Austin in two leagues and would prefer to see better production from #19. That’s a different...
“Kevin Ogletree! Pick him up!!!”
“I called him as a sleeper! My Twitter followers must know!!”
“Now I can call myself a guru and people can’t question it!”
Relax, everyone. If you can pick up Ogletree, that’s great. I got him on waivers in one league, missed out in one that has an auction bid system for pick ups and didn’t even bother in another league because...
My initial thought regarding Kevin Ogletree about half way through Wednesday night's Cowboys/Giants game was that we would see the typical early season over reaction to a widely non-drafted player that had everyone running to their league's waiver wire. By the time the game ended my opinion changed, Ogletree could be the 2012 version of Laurent Robinson in the Dallas offense...
Looking around this guy is owned in less than 5% of leagues prior to kickoff. We could have led with the predictable headline of "Ogletree the New Laurent Robinson" , but we figured that ship was getting a little full. The fact remains that Kevin Ogletree made the most of the chance he got to finally play a real part in the Cowboys offense and he's the leading candidate...
Kevin Ogletree certainly looked like a solid #3 receiver on Wednesday.
Few teams in NFL history were as clueless about what to do with a lead than the 2011 Dallas Cowboys. This was the team that couldn’t hold a 24-10 lead over the Jets, a 27-3 lead over the Lions, or a 34-22 lead over the Giants. Making matters worse, the Cowboys had those leads in the fourth quarter.
The world was introduced to the unknown Cowboys receiver named Kevin Ogletree and the Giants start their title defense 0-1. Here are 9 quick observations from last night.The post 9 Quick Observations From The Cowboys 24-17 Win Over The Giants appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
The NFL kicked off in dramatic rivalry fashion with the returning Superbowl Champion Giants taking on their NFC East foe Dallas Cowboys. Much maligned Quarterback Tony Romo came, saw and conquered while in MetLife Stadium as he threw for 307 yards including three TD’s and came up bigger than Eli in the 24-17 victory.
The hero of the night props goes...
Fantasy football players are tripping over themselves rushing to the computer this morning to put in a waiver wire claim for Kevin Ogletree. I won’t be one of them as it will take a lot more than one game out of 32 to suddenly convince me that this kid is as good as his numbers.
Dallas Cowboys receiver Kevin Ogletree had caught 25 passes for 294 yards with zero touchdowns in his first thee NFL seasons. On Thursday night he had a breakout game against the defending world champion New York Giants, catching eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns.
The Giants secondary focused on Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, leaving the undrafted free agent out of Virginia...
It’s the first week of the NFL regular season and before I begin talking about it, why don’t we take a moment to be thankful that football is back. Now I know college football started last week and I’m aware that the preseason started over a month ago, but for an NFL guy like me, Wednesday night was the beginning of the best time of the year. The Giants and Cowboys already...
The Dallas Cowboys defeated the New York Giants 24-17 Wednesday night at MetLife Stadium to kickoff the 2012 NFL Season. The first half was pretty dull, but the action picked up in the second half. That game was only the appetizer to the main course coming Sunday, but it was still great to have football back. Here are 5 things we learned from last night’s Cowboys-Giants game.
Finally NFL football is back! A late rally by Eli Manning and the defending champion New York Giants came up short on this opening Wednesday kickstart to the 2012 campaign.The long awaited divisional matchup began in lackluster fashion, the only touchdown in a yawner of a first half coming on a Tony Romo toss to Kevin Ogletree from ten yards out with 2:33 left before intermission...
