Opinions on Brooks' fantasy value since Deuce injury
 
No Deuce, does it make Brooks a better fantasy QB?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quote:

They'll be like the Rams and Eagles now, just throw the ball all game. Of course in Brooks' case this year, that could be a lot of INTs on top of those yards and TDs (maybe TDs that is). Or should I just drop this dud already and get Leftwich or McCown?
Quote:

Hell no.

If anything, week 5 has proven it. How do you let one of the worst passing defenses in the league hold you to 3 points, while their offense scores 50? I started Brooks; when I learned that Green Bay scored 50 points, I anticipated that the Saints answered with 35-40 points of their own, but when I looked at the scoreboard, I nearly cried.

Aaron Brooks is a bum and will always be a bum, IMO.
Quote:

BB, I'm just as frustrated as you are. I started Brooks this week, as I do every week, and lost by 2, thus losing the lead in my division. However, I do think this gives him a shot to be more productive. This team is 1-0 at "home" and 0-4 on the road (counting the "home" game at NYG), not unusual in the NFL. Against the Giants, Brooks, Horn & Stallworth went off, and my team won in a cakewalk. That is possible every week. Keep in mind my 12-team league requires two QBs to start, which means all starters are valuable.

If Brooks were cut, I'd scoop him up instantaneously. Don't give up too soon.

I mean, should I cut Tomlinson because he only rushed for less than 50?
Quote:

I would say Brooks has some opportunities, but it depends on the matchup. I like Leftwich for the long haul over Brooks, but Brooks may surprise you depending on the matchup. I think horn being out and Stallworth's success (in one game at least) will do wonders for the NO "offense", but the big ? is if/how they will run the ball. Antowain's 3 yds per carry won't get it done, I see Stecker needing to come in and show him how to be explosive (ala Tatum Bell).
Maybe a lot of swing passes/screen passes to slow down the pass rush will pad Brooks' stats some...
Quote:

Aaron Brooks is waiver wire fodder. I'd rather start Trent Dilfer.
Quote:

Dilfer was just dropped actually, but I'd rather have Brooks still.

I'm definitely thinking about Leftwich, and should probably act on that soon. My other QB is Delhomme.
Quote:

Delhomme is a fine starter...I'd never start Brooks ahead of him. You just need a filler for his bye in week 7.

Actually, the Saints play the Rams in week 7, so Brooks might not be a bad start that week...I bet even he can throw for a boatload on them.
Quote:

Tomlinson rushing for less than 50 is rare. Aaron Brooks stinking up the place isn't. I called it perfectly --- Aaron Brooks vs. the Packers defense. I envisioned 3 TDs from him, maybe more. How do you look yourself in the mirror and call yourself a strong-armed, accurate passer and allow another team to score 50 unanswered points, while you throw for ZERO TDs???????????????????????????? Only Aaron Brooks could F that up.

I lost because of this bum. Everyone else contributed at least a little, this BUM gives me -1 point in a blowout game. Now I'm 0-5.

F him.
Quote:

Brooks has a lower QB rating on the season than such luminaries as Rattay, Wright, Boller and Bollinger. He has been awful. I can't really see how having less of a running game is going to help him. A few more passing attempts? Yeah probably. More turnovers and mistake? Probably just as likely.

For whatever reason the light never seemed to come on for Brooks.
Quote:

One other thing working against Brooks, is that there's a good chance the Saints, with all the sh!t goin on in LA, could mail it in.

BTW, i recently acquired an MRI of Brooks' brain. Might explain a lot.

Quote:

When Horn is back he will get at least 1 TD a game. Not necessarily all to Horn, but the attention he will draw will free up the other receivers anyway.

He's still not a good start either way though.
