Jerome Simpson (WR, MIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting

ANALYSIS: Vikings wideout Jerome Simpson had a great game this past weekend with seven catches for 140 yards. Yes I know what you're thinking, if he could do that each week then he'd be...well, he'd be a top 5 receiver in the NFL, ha!  The reality is Christian Ponder is the QB for the Vikings, and games like this should not be expected with any regularity from Simpson. He plays vs. a tougher Chicago defense this week, so if he stands out again we'll know he's for real. Until then, either leave him on the waiver wire or stash him if you have 6+ bench slots in a 12 team league.
