Chris Ogbonnaya (FB/RB, CLE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Ben Speed Page -

Baller Move: Stash in Deep PPR formats.

Analysis: Ogbonnaya’s performance against the soft Lion’s D is most likely just a bump in the road for McGahee’s total usurpation of the Browns’ run game. That said, anytime a running back see’s 12 targets in the pass game, he is worth keeping an eye on in PPR formats. The fact that Ogbonnaya turned out a five-carry, 24-yard effort along with seven receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown only adds to the argument that he is worth stashing, at least in deep PPR formats. If you are still holding onto guys likeJulio Jones (non-keeper), Eddie Royal, and (heaven forbid) Zach Sudfeld– or any of the other big duds from this season– Ogbonnaya is the type of high-upside bench gamble that could pay off in the long run. And he’s available in well over 90% of leagues.
