Waiver Wire Thread

87 posts in this topic

I'm surprised this wasn't here already, but post your questions about who to try to grab off of waivers.

I need an RB this week because Sproles is on a bye and my backup is Bernard Pierce (who is probably going to be sent packing from my team since I have Rice). The top 3 after pierce are LaRod Stephens-Howling and William Howell of the Cardinals, and Alex Green of Green Bay.

I'm leaning towards grabbing one of the two Cardinals, but I'm not sure which one. LaRod is expected to start this Sunday, but he's coming off a hip injury so I am wondering if Howell is the better choice. Houston is good at stopping the run so I'm not entirely sure why Green is being ranked so high.

Thoughts?

And it probably won't be discussed in much depth. Many of us play in multiple leagues on this board and don't want to hype up a potential snag.

I highly recommend staying away from the Arizona/GB backfield. ;)

Go with Howell. AZ might run the ball a lot, what with the passing discrepancies and the fact that they'll want to burn clock. See if Kendall Hunter is on Waivers, though. He's a decent RB2.

*looks* Curses, someone else already owns him. I have 3 people on my waiver requests right now, we'll see if I get them or if the #1 and 2 waiver priorities get them first.

FYI, Donald Brown out at least for at least 2-3 weeks. He underwent Knee Surgery. Vick Ballard is expected to start. Decent pick up in deep leagues.

Nice to see you picked him up in ATD's league before posting this.

Damn you...

I know you check Rotoworld so I had to be quick. Thought I would give a PSA for people in outside leagues. Luckily the person who has Donald Brown in our Yahoo league, got Alex Green off waivers this morning

He's an important pickup for Brown owners. But I doubt he cracks many starting lineups this week. But if he plays well, he then has CLE & TEN.

Well played. I was hoping to get Green, especially with Benson done.

With Indy's O looking to be on the rise, Ballard could be walking into a good situation, even though he's not very talented. Seems to be a running trend in fantasy this year. A starter is out but his backup is too pedestrian of a talent to do anything with the workload.

Somehow managed to get william powell (guessing its because I had him first on my waiver priority). With wells and williams on ir i may have found a gem.

He should split carries with the hyphen, but i must warn you Ari offense is a nightmare all around. That said i still took a flyer on him in our ESPN league.

Jahvid Best and Vincent Brown great pick ups. If they prove healthy, they will have huge roles in respective offenses

agreed but youre talking to a guy with an rb core of Lynch Jones-Drew and Gore. Only reason he is getting the starting nod this week is because of Jones-Drew in on bye. That being said tho, Schefter is reporting he gets the starting nod and the ari is excited about him

I couldn't get any of the RBs this week.

Neither could I. I have Benson, Morris, and Bush. Should I pick up Best, Hunter, or Bolden.

Id get best. Hunter only really has value when the 9ers are in blowout mode and he gets garbage time carries. The patriots backfield is random. Best will probably have some significant value goin forward if he gets healthy

Yeah i had picked up Starks in waivers thinking he might wind up winning out in the end, but then i saw someone had dropped LeShoure to pick up Best, so i dropped starks and picked leshoure up.

Im really hurting for an RB2 behind Murray in this one league. Ive got Sjax, Bolden, Tate, William Powell and Leshoure now. After Gonz' week 7 bye ill drop my second TE and look at picking up David Wilson now that it seems like his role is expanding.

In my other league ive got AP, MJD, Bradshaw, LeShoure and just picked up Best. MJD is on bye so ill probably start leshoure againsy philly over bradshaw against san fran as a fill in

Best has the most upside, but he could also give you no production. If he is 3rd or 4th option Best would make the most sense. Bolden and Hunter are in crowded backfields.

why am I being quoted here? I just gave my opinion on which to get. I'll take the guy who will have a consistent role, is leaning toward coming back and has high upside over basically a crapshoot. While Best may give you no value if your picking up a guy to stash on your bench and possibly start in the future I believe best is the most optimal options (didnt want to say best option)

Cut Jahvid Best from your teams and pick up somebody else.. The Lions have announced that Best will not be playing football this season.

Shouldn't really shock anyone. I never thought he would be cleared.

[s]Chiefs D vs Raiders, or Steelers D vs Redskins? Yahoo is projecting KC to kick some [profanity deleted] this week but I'm not convinced looking at their past performance. Next in line is the Steelers though they have been inconsistent this year. I know if I hang on to Dallas, I'm asking for trouble since they're facing the Giants.[/s]

Never mind. I found the stats and even though fantasy-wise their points have been wild, the Steelers are still the #2 defense overall according to NFL.com. KC is down at 15.

The Steelers are such a disappointment, fantasy-wise. I dropped them for AZ and then CLE. Keeping my eye on TB, too.

Myers because he has the least value. Murray and Brown are worth sitting on. Boldin and Pitta are hot in good matchups, like OAK.

I also have Andre Brown, but he is a vulture, and TD's win fantasy games. So Maybe. Would Jennings be a good pickup?

Assuming Jennings gets back in the game soon, which is expected, he should be good for double digits every week. He's one of Rodgers' favorite receivers and he spreads the ball around anyway.

Matt Prater: pick him up if he's available in your league! He's been on fire ever since the bye and has an easy schedule for the rest of the season.

Injuries are killing me. I'm really hoping I can grab a good TE to replace Gronk.

My waiver order is Daniels,Shianco,Miller & then Pettigrew...

Heath Millers value is down because Bens injured. I also happen to have Ben, and Wallace. I need more roster spots, I can't start RG3 vs Ravens week 14 because I don't get down like that, I really hope Ben will be there.

Having injuries at the worse time this year. I'm just glad I have RG3 & Rodgers. But Gronk was the staple on my team

Jacksonville's a legitimate fantasy team, for the 1st time since I've started playing! Cecil is a real stud, Blackmon has some real potential and Henne and Jennings are legitimate QB2/RB2 options.
