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. In 2011, Robinson put up a stat line of 54-858-11 as the #3 WR.
When everyone is healthy, Ogletree is the 4th option in the passing game, but on the flip side defenses need to first focus on Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Jason Witten. This could lead to Ogletree getting lost in the shuffle and being a productive WR.
If you are in a PPR league that starts 2 WR, Ogletree is a guy to stash on the bench and possibly use a bye week fill in while getting a bigger sample size. In a larger PPR league, or a league that starts 3 WR, I would take a chance that he can be a solid #3 WR.
The FantasyFootballPPR final analysis is you shouldn't expect what you saw in week one, but he should be a 4 catch per week WR who will mix in a handful of very good games during the year and could finish around 8 TDs. He is worth an add in most PPR leagues, however,
I would wait a week or two before putting him in your line-up unless you are thin at WR and have no better options.

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?”

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.

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.
The excitement of opening day can bring many different feelings to an NFL player like Dez Bryant, Tony Romo, or Morris Claiborne.

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.

The Giants and Cowboys already...
