After 8 catches, 114 yards, and 2 touchdowns against the Giants, you might be rushing out to claim Kevin Ogletree on the waiver wire as this year’s Laurent Robinson. Not so fast.
Ogletree was the beneficiary tonight of being a larger part of the game plan due to injuries to Witten & Austin and matchups vs. soft CBs.

While he’s certainly proven he can perform when called upon, Ogletree’s been on the Cowboys’ roster long enough and been named an “emerging star” enough times that I’m forced to doubt he’ll become a factor each and every week for Dallas. It’s still possible one of Dallas’ other options at WR3 emerges this year, and I think Fantasy Buddha is right about injuries to both the Cowboys’ weapons and the Giants’ corners influencing where Romo went with the ball last night.
I’m not saying don’t pick him up…but I wouldn’t expect Robinson numbers of him. At least not until we see him repeat this performance or unless injuries hit the Cowboys’ wide receivers again like they did last year to give Robinson opportunity.
