Hear me out! College football is where I first caught a glimpse of John Simon http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-quenton-nelson-jersey , and as far back as his days at Ohio State, the Colts have struggled to employ great linebackers. This we can all agree on. Colts fans watched Simon during his time with the Texans after initially being waived by the Ravens, and again there were games against the Colts in previous seasons where he made a big play and I couldn’t help but think “We need guys like that on our team.”Last spring, when the Colts signed the 6’1”, 250 lb. outside linebacker of the Big Ten variety, I thought for sure we’d found our defensive captain and had no doubt he’d make big plays for us. That he did and more. Last year, Simon was the constant presence at the position we’d missed, and going into his second season with the Colts, again I think we can all agree that Simon was a lock to make the roster and continue to contribute in a big way.When Chuck Pagano was fired and the coaching search began, there was a tone of “big changes are coming”, and sure enough, Frank Reich was hired and the defensive system was changed from a 3-4 (which suits John Simon as an OLB with range because he doesn’t have to commit to contact with a bigger offensive tackle to keep contain) to a 4-3 (in which he’d be forced inside and relegated to a situational pass rusher), and we found out that Simon was going to switch to defensive end. Nevermind that we saw Henry Anderson drop a bunch of weight to facilitate the scheme change and get traded to the Jets as a result. I’d argue the Simon cut is of similar flavor no matter how bitter it tastes right now.First of all, we can love a player and his skillset and understand he isn’t an every down player in this defensive scheme because he’s playing outside of his natural position (regardless if he’s having success or not), he is undersized as a defensive end, and you can’t pay a guy $13+ million over 3 years to stand on the sidelines until you need him to play situational football. That’s crazy talk.The hardcore reality is that what Chris Ballard is doing exactly what he said he was going to do. This team is young and fast. Understand that Simon played four seasons of Big Ten football (at a very high level) before being drafted in 2013. That’s a decade of high level football at one of the most violent and important positions in the sport (linebackers are the quarterbacks of a defense). I saw Simon play well during this preseason, and like many of you Darius Leonard Jersey , I wanted him to make the team. Until he was cut.The first thing I did when Simon was cut yesterday was go look up his contract. $4+ million due this year and he’s in a rotation with guys who are bigger than him and arguably capable of playing more downs a game than him. Simon played a ton of downs in the preseason and the Colts were shopping him. Okay, I’d prefer if we called it showcasing, but nonetheless. No one bit! This is because a great football player will play great football even if you play him out of position. You don’t pay a guy to do that, though. Let another team struggling for leadership and direction pay big dollars for that. Cleveland here we come?I’m not saying Simon’s career is over, but I will say that you won’t see him play defensive end for anybody based solely on his size. A lot of Colts fans are upset that guys like Margus Hunt made the roster but fail to understand that Margus is 6’8” and 277 lbs. He also is on the last of his 2-year contract and only makes about $2 million. Margus is bigger, is a natural fit at the same position, gets paid less and basically would be sharing snaps with Simon amidst a rotation.The silver lining is that the Colts saw former Towson star Ryan Delaire rise this preseason. Keep in mind that he’s 6’4” and 270lbs and an actual defensive end. A lot of fans pointed out that his production mirrored Simon. Yeah, and he’s younger, cheaper (less than a million due this year!) and a better fit at the position (and productive!).Keeping Simon is a bad decision every single day of the week.We’re allowed to be emotional creatures because we are just that. This is a situation, though, where if you squint, you can see why this happened. Right?All is not lost. It’s just different now.Please direct your ire at me in the comments. I can handle it. Now your fantasy skills and strategic planning are about to be truly tested. There are six teams on byes this week: the Bengals, Cardinals, Colts, Eagles, Lions and Jaguars.You won't be setting what you feel is a fully solid lineup. That's why you have to deftly work the waiver wire at all positions.RUNNING BACKSELIJAH McGUIRE, New York Jets (4.3 percent owned): The potential sparkplug is currently on injured reserve as he makes his way back from a foot injury Authentic Braden Smith Jersey , but he has been practicing for two weeks and could be activated very soon. Rookie Trenton Cannon did not seize an opportunity with Bilal Powell done for the season, as he totaled 22 yards from scrimmage at Chicago. McGuire could get a chance to complement the very inconsistent Isaiah Crowell upon his expected return.DEVONTAE BOOKER, Broncos (11.6): Disappointing rookie Royce Freeman may continue to sit out with an ankle sprain, and Booker made the most of his touches in Week 8, totaling 101 yards from scrimmage. Phillip Lindsay is Denver's clear lead back, but Booker can catch passes and is worth the waiver add as a bye week plug in point-per-reception formats.JOSH ADAMS, Eagles (0.4): The Eagles running game has been mired in mediocrity this season without the departed LeGarrette Blount and the injured Jay Ajayi. Enter undrafted free agent Adams, who rushed for 61 yards on nine carries on Sunday. A big back with versatility and quickness, he is worth the waiver pickup to see If he can emerge in this situation and add a much-needed element of respectability in the Philadelphia backfield.WIDE RECEIVERSD.J. MOORE, Panthers (10.4): Veteran Torrey Smith sat out Sunday and the rookie took advantage, registering his best yardage total yet (90). Moore will be a very alluring streaming option against Tampa Bay this week, especially if Smith sits again. He is going to push for more playing time sooner or later anyhow, as he can be slippery against defenses in high percentage and key situations. His skill set also adds a needed catch-and-run element to the Carolina passing game.DAVID MOORE, Seahawks (2.7): He should have already been picked up, but obviously fantasy owners needed more convincing that he can be a relevant producer. No more selling points are needed after four TD receptions in his past three games and a 97-yard outing in Week 8. Moore is effectively making the Seahawks forget Paul Richardson, as he has come on as their new downfield threat. He'll need to generate more consistent yardage totals to be more than a WR4 in fantasy, but he is a terrific bye week replacement.DEVANTE PARKER Youth Malik Hooker Jersey , Dolphins (21.6): An injury-plagued disappointment for three-plus seasons until his last outing, Parker resurfaced in a big way Thursday night and displayed the sort of promise that has tantalized fantasy owners since he arrived in the pros. In the most inspiring performance of his career so far, Parker caught six passes for 134 yards. Now he faces the highly vulnerable Jets secondary. If you use a free agent acquisition budget for waiver adds, don't overbid on Parker just because of one game. But if you do land him, matchups with New York and Green Bay next do point to him being a very intriguing streamer.TIGHT ENDSJACK DOYLE (31.9): Many fantasy owners cut a player when he is injured, and while you can't fault them for doing so in a 10-team league, Doyle should have received strong consideration to remain rostered in 12-team leagues and larger formats. Sometimes it is difficult to keep a player on your bench when bye weeks and other considerations make the roster squeeze tight. Doyle was never reported to be out for the season, so it was smart to stash him. He returned to catch six passes for 70 yards and a TD in Week 8 and even while sharing some targets with Eric Ebron, he should retain TE1 status in PPR leagues. Don't pass over him as a waiver add just because he is on a bye.ED DICKSON, Seahawks (0.5): A quadriceps issue kept him out of action until Week 8, and then he caught two passes for 54 yards and a TD in his Seahawks debut. Dickson is unlikely to rise above TE2 status, but Russell Wilson will look to his TE in scoring situations and will work him in occasionally enough otherwise to make him a bye week consideration. He's a rental waiver add if you need one at the position.QUARTERBACKRYAN FITZPATRICK, Buccaneers (6.0): The QB position has enough quality depth that many owners don't need to trade for one or visit the waiver wire for them too often. But Fitzpatrick has regained the starting job in Tampa Bay and it's no secret that his defense and lack of a consistently reliable running game will prompt him to fling the ball frequently. It seemed like some time ago that Fitzpatrick opened the season with three 400-yard games, and he is always capable of a stinker outing. But the statistical upside remains very tempting. Just don't make the potential mistake of starting him over a top-level QB based simply on the other passer having a less friendly matchup. Fitzpatrick's track record indicates you are always in for a possible roller coaster ride with the journeyman.
