    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 3, 2008 

    Here’s a look at the players to target on your league’s waiver wire this week. This list is ordered by the percentage of ESPN leagues in which the player is available; even if you’re not a ESPN user, it’s a decent indication of how likely you are to find the player on waivers in your league. We also note here how strongly we feel about this pickup with three categories: Instant Starter, Grab ‘n’ Stash, or Desperation Pickup.

    Chansi Stuckey, WR, Jets (0.7% owned, Desperation Pickup) – He’s not the primary target in this offense…or even the second (third?), but he does have a touchdown in each of the first two games for the Jets on a combined six catches for 80 yards. He’s not going to blow your opponent away, but if you’re absolutely stuck for a WR3 play in week three, you might consider Stuckey.

    Michael Bush, RB, Raiders (6.1% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – “Starter” Justin Fargas left Sunday’s game with a groin injury and the severity is yet to be determined. While Darren McFadden is still the main man in this running game, Bush will get a healthy dose of carries in the next week or so if Fargas happens to miss extended time. (More …)

      Chansi Stuckey plays for the Jets, not Giants. Giants have Burress, Toomer and Steve Smith 🙂

      @Rushi: Good call…shows how much I know about the guy (or maybe I just need to pay a little more attention to the player profile!)

      hey Brandon, great blog. I need some advice. I have Megatron (CJohnson) and Roddy White as my two starting receivers. I also have David Patten and Patrick Crayton on the bench. For backup RBs i have Justin Fargas, BJax, and Sporles ( I do not own LT).

      I feel like I need help at WR b/c White is inconsistent. So, my question is would you recommend dropping any of the guys mentioned above for Stuckey, Gage, Antonio Bryant (TB), Isaac Bruce , Bryant Johnson (SF),Robert Meachem , Amani Toomer.

      other back RBs available are: Fred Jackson, Ahmad Bradshaw (I have Jacobs), LaMont Jordan,Le’Ron McClain , Jamal Charles … what do you think?

    Sunday Wrap-up: Brandon Marshall is back! 

    While the Bronco’s should definitely have lost their game with the Chargers (I have no clue what the officials where thinking when they blew that ball dead!), the most important thing to take away from the game for all of us non-Broncos/Chargers fans is that Brandon Marshall is back…and he’s very pissed at anyone who discounted him in their league’s draft. Marshall finished the game with the second most receptions for a game in NFL history with 18 (two shy of T.O.’s record of 20) and racked up 166 yards and a touchdown in the process. If you were in a PPR league that awards bonus points for breaking the 100 yard or 150 yard mark…and you had Marshall in your starting roster…you are very, very happy right now. Anyways, here are some other notes from the games this past weekend that you may find interesting…

    • Broncos 39, Chargers 38: Besides being happy to be a Brandon Marshall owner, those of you who had faith that Cutler would be a top notch talent after getting his diabetes under control are being rewarded nicely…to the tune of 650 yards and six touchdowns through the first two games of the season. Looking at the Broncos schedule, I wouldn’t expect too much of a drop off in production either (if any). For all of you who took him late in the draft…it’s time to start laughing at the guys who drafted Derek Anderson and Carson Palmer five rounds earlier. In other news, LT owners should have a waiver claim in for Darren Sproles (317 all purpose yards and two touchdowns) immediately (at the cost of dropping Jacob Hester if necessary). Philip Rivers (21 of 33 for 377 yards and three TD, two INT), Chris Chambers (four catches for 83 yards and two TD), and Tony Scheffler (six catches for 64 yards, 2 TD) didn’t look too bad in this one either. If you picked up Eddie Royal after his first week outburst…keep him around. Cutler has confidence in him and you can expect a ton of chances to put up quality numbers all season long as defenses try to contain Marshall. (More …)
