Dexter McCluster, Kansas City Chiefs

Matt Hartman - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues (12+ teams PPR)

ANALYSIS:  For those of you who are in PPR leagues, Dexter McCluster is a player for you consider.  For the past two weeks, he’s had 137 yards on 11 catches with 15 targets (73% catch rate).  Coming into the season, I anticipated that Andy Reid would find a way to get the ball into McCluster’s hands, and I believe it’s finally happening.  It seems as though Alex Smith will continue to look to him (second-straight week as the Chiefs’ leading receiver) for short underneath routes, which is a great opportunity for PPR league players to consider McCluster as a WR option.  For the past two weeks I’d call him a Julian Edelman Lite for 2013.  If he continues at this pace, I anticipate that his value will increase substantially in the upcoming weeks.
