A red light for Shonn Greene

Shonn Greene hasn’t had a 100-yard rushing game since Week 4 of 2010.

The best way to evaluate talent is with our own two eyes. See a guy that looks like a freak of nature on the field? Chances are he’s going to help your fantasy team.

That’s how we find guys like Kenny Britt, Matthew Stafford and Aaron Hernandez. And that’s how we can identify guys that won’t help us.

If a player isn’t a special talent, it will eventually catch up with him in terms of role, production or both. Sell on these mediocre talents before it’s too late:  

Still waiting

Shonn Greene’s breakout was going to happen last year. Nope. It was surely going to be this year, right? Wrong again. Greene is averaging just 2.9 yards per carry this season even though teams aren’t stacking the box against the Jets. He doesn’t play on passing downs, is a poor receiver out of the backfield and isn’t showing any burst. With the Jets’ offensive line already underperforming and getting ready to play without C Nick Mangold (ankle), it doesn’t figure to get any better.          
          
Roll up the Blount

LeGarrette Blount is a lot like Greene. He’s not that athletic so he struggles as a receiver and in space. When the Bucs are behind, Earnest Graham is usually their primary back. Now is a perfect time to sell Blount, who scored two touchdowns in Week 2.       

Pushed up Hillis

The most appealing part of Peyton?Hillis’s fantasy game are his monster workloads. It’s also a curse. By touching the ball 25 to 30 times a game, he gets worn down. Hillis is getting just 3.4 YPC?this year after sinking to 3.9 over the final eight games of last year. And now his coach is saying that he wants to back off Hillis and get Montario Hardesty more involved. The time to bail is now.

Top NFL picks

David Nelson
WR, Bills
With Roscoe Parrish out for the year, Nelson is taking over in Chan Gailey’s highly-targeted slot position. This is the 6-foot-5 Nelson’s chance to break out.    

Denarius Moore

WR,?Raiders
Don’t be fooled by Moore’s slide in April’s draft. The rookie has elite talent right now and will hold off Darrius Heyward-Bey for the starting job all year.

Eric Decker
WR, Broncos
Once Eddie Royal gets back from his groin injury in a month or so, he won’t have a job. Decker is bigger, stronger and better after the catch.
