Danario Alexander WR SD Dec 12 '1268 Comments

Coach Norv Turner said defenses are yet to adjust to Danario Alexander.

Over the last five weeks, Alexander has 30 catches for 494 yards and five touchdowns. "He's still seeing a lot of single coverage, a lot of matchups where he's not getting the best (defensive back)," Turner said. "He's getting the third DB, and he's taking advantage of it, and I think we're taking advantage of it." Alexander might start seeing some more coverage roll his way, but it's not a huge concern. The 6'5/217 monster has more than enough talent to overcome it.

Megatron 6'5 236. Vjax 6'5 230. Andre Johnson 6'3 227. Fitz 6'3 218. Marshall 6'4 230.

Roddy White 6'0 211. Welker 5'9 185. Steve Smith 5'9 185. Cuz 6'0 204. Reggie Wayne 6'0 198.

Size doesn't really make you a monster. He might have the talent, but judging by his history there has to be a reason the Rams didn't utilize him. They basically paid the guy to leave the team. Maybe something on top of all the injuries he's had? After all he should have flourished in STL, they were worse off at WR and have a better run game. I guess Norv knew what he was doing. Lets see how long the brittle monster lasts.

Danario,Wallace,Jones,Garscon and Johnson i need to pick 3 of them

Fletchisawesome Dec 13 '12

alexander or shorts? pick 1

my other 2 wideout slots r taken by aj green and andre johnson

SalsaEater Dec 14 '12

Too easy to answer.

Chthulu Dec 13 '12

Cobb or Danario this week?

Chthulu Dec 13 '12

Crap, make that Cobb, Danario, or Shorts for my 3rd WR slot? Other two spotstaken by Green and V KJax.

Jasaks Dec 13 '12

cobb by ranking. but none of them will disappoint, all good options for big plays.

jackhenson Dec 13 '12

D. Alex does well against the Panthers secondary?

Jasaks Dec 13 '12

yes. outside of their pass rush, they have a terrible D. Danario is 6'5 and is the new V-Jax. Floyd and Gates have no game-breaking speed, any/all big plays come from danario. Theyre sure as hell not going to be able to run the ball... Same goes for Cecil, you can't run against the dolphins, gotta pass. And cobb, well, he has rodgers with jordy hurt, jennings not 100%, and james jones falling out of favor.

RJG231811 Dec 12 '12

12 team ppr- A.J. Green @PHI , Julio Jones vs. Giants , Reggie Wayne @HOU , Danario Alexander vs. CAR , Ryan Mathews vs. CAR . 1 Flex , 2 WR . Green is a lock , just not sure who else . Thanks .

Jasaks Dec 12 '12

RJG231811 Dec 12 '12

Riggs44R Dec 12 '12

It's gotta be the first 3 you listed

RJG231811 Dec 12 '12

Ya , I was thinking similar to that . Just don't like sitting Alexander , especially cause I had him on the bench last week .. Haha , thanks and good luck to ypu both .

The_Main_Man Dec 13 '12

I would say Green, Wayne, and Alexander.

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

Green>Wayne>Alexander>Jones>Matthews

Joe_Weibel25 Dec 13 '12

Green jones alexander wayne matthews

RJG231811 Dec 13 '12

Thanks guys . Good luck to u all .

aceofspades2346 Dec 12 '12

Dez, Garcon, Nicks, Walace, alexander pick 2

Yoshi Dec 12 '12

Wallace, Alexander.

RonPlourde Dec 12 '12

Garcon and Alexander

Joe_Weibel25 Dec 12 '12

garcon and Alexander

Phinfan85 Dec 12 '12

garcon if rg3 plays... Dez if he plays

Yoshi Dec 12 '12

Garcon will have Haden on him, good luck with that.

CarlisleWeenie Dec 12 '12

Never thought I'd say it, but I'd go Dez with Alexander. Wallace is probably more talented than Dez, but I'm not sure Big Ben is 100% yet. Dez has been stepping up lately, and even though he's a head case, Romo will throw a lot, and Dez is his favorite target.

WackAttack Dec 12 '12

Dez is hurt too though, a broken finger on his hand that was bad enough they were considering shutting him down for the season. I'd take Roethlisberger playing through an injury (which he's almost always doing by this point in the season) over an already flukey Dez with a broken finger.

Phinfan85 Dec 12 '12

Wait, what? Wallace is more talented then Dez? Really?? I don't think their even close if Dez is fully healthy!

CarlisleWeenie Dec 12 '12

Didn't know about the Dez injury. That certainly changes the equation.

flyingwelindas Dec 12 '12

dude, there is zero chance that wallace is more talented than dez...they are both head cases but when it comes to talent i think there is a decent margin

Riggs44R Dec 12 '12

I concur completely! Wallace is just fast, that's it! He's dropped quite a few the past 2 seasons, also.

flyingwelindas Dec 12 '12

i picked up eman sanders in my dynasty league expecting wallace to be audi 5000

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

Haden sucks

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

Garcon>Dez(if he plys)>Alexander>Nicks>Wallace

ThatMan Dec 13 '12

That's ignorant talk.

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

Haden's only interceptions this year have come from Vick,Dalton and Charlie Batch. Not exactly the best decision makers. Haden didn't even have an interception last year in 15 starts. Im sick of everybody bragging this dude up. He's average. Just like his team.

Joe_Weibel25 Dec 13 '12

Picks dont make or break a corner he swats the ball away and immediately make the tackle

Joe_Weibel25 Dec 13 '12

I like that except Alexander over Dez Alex is the playmaker Dez is too inconsistent

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

All would be great if that was the case... I watch him every week and he gets beat often, he's allowed TDs to Macklin,T. Smith, Bryant, Green...

ThatMan Dec 13 '12

He's a shut down corner plain and simple. You obviously don't watch him every week if you think he and his team are average, be real.

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

Theres alot of talent in the league but to call someone a shut down corner imo is comparing him to the best and Haden isn't there, be real... he's no Ty Law, he's no Champ Bailey, he's no Mel Blount, he's no Ronnie Lott, he's no Deion Sanders, he's no Darrelle Revis, he's no Rod Woodson, he's no Dick Lane.... Plain and simple

begs Dec 14 '12

chair<haden<lazyboy

ThatMan Dec 14 '12

No one ever said he was a Hall of Famer there bud. You only list two active players on your little list. I'll give you Champ, but he's better than Revis, at least Haden can stay healthy. Even when Revis was healthy, he was overrated. Thanks for the moot points though.

Jaspertheghost Dec 14 '12

You don't even have an arguement.. I was listing shut down corners what does it matter if there active players or not lol

begs Dec 14 '12

jasper google searched top 10 corners of all-time and now he thinks he knows about football

Jaspertheghost Dec 14 '12

begs is too pussy to form his own opinion so he creaps around fleaflicker and talks shlt

begs Dec 14 '12

too pussy to get in an argument on an online forum? damn man you mad gangsterish disrespectin' peeps on this thread

Riggs44R Dec 14 '12

He did get ya there, you are like that.

ThatMan Dec 14 '12

Here's an opinion for you: Jaspertheghost doesn't know a shutdown CB when he sees one. He can, however, Google the hell out something when he wants to sound right like he knows what he's talking about, Begs is right about that.

begs Dec 15 '12

dammit Riggs I got 8 days to my retirement, and I will NOT make a stupid mistake!

Riggs44R Dec 15 '12

okkkkkk??? LoL

Yoshi Dec 12 '12

Thanks NORV for telling all the defenses to guard him now!!!

Fabio49ers Dec 12 '12

I was about to say the same $hit!!! I can't come up with one reason how this garbage still has a job as a head coach in this league...

Yoshi Dec 12 '12

He will be gone after the season ends.

sleekviper Dec 12 '12

He should have been saying this after game 3, not 14, if he was going to be this stupid. How does anyone miss a guy 6'5", 217, that can catch the ball over most of the league? Don't play the tall guy till too late in the season, don't pass to Gates, and baby Matthews; Norvgate is underway since somebody must be sliding money under the table.

CarlisleWeenie Dec 12 '12

Is there any bigger idiot HC in the league? I've watched him misuse Mathews all year. Now he's about to jynx his best WR. What a dork!

Mish Dec 12 '12

Please, please, please, please, please, please, please!

HollywdSean Dec 12 '12

D. Alexander just got signed with the Chargers off the street less than 2 months ago... St. Louis released him... Not a bad pick up for someone off the street!!!

I_AM_BRUNO Dec 12 '12

i agree with most of that, but do ur homework. D.A. didn't start until wk 6or7 you only sound as stupid as the guy ur putting down.

HollywdSean Dec 12 '12

He got picked up after St Louis let him go!!! He didn't even get signed till week "6or7"... Week 7 was a BYE week!!! He started in place of R.M. In week 9 because of a hamstring problem... Do your "homework"!!! Who sounds stupid now???

sleekviper Dec 12 '12

I think that he means me Hollywd.

Riggs44R Dec 12 '12

Not only telling defenses to adjust/cover him but putting DA down by saying, his success is ONLY because he's been getting the 3rd WR! Way to give your guy confidence Norvous! DA is/has been a beast! If not for bad injuries he would have stuck with the Rams

Phinfan85 Dec 13 '12

Two words... Romeo Crenell hahhahahaha

Gridiron-IQ Dec 13 '12

For sure

Jaspertheghost Dec 13 '12

dx

HollywdSean Dec 13 '12

Oh, lol... I was just trying to be informative...

warriors2185 Dec 14 '12

LOL

mikeditka4729 Dec 12 '12

nah there just not use to rivers completing passes yet

Yoshi Dec 12 '12

That's true, they just expect it to hit the field or go into the stands.
