    The Wire: Waiver Wire pickups for week 8, 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.

    Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers (0.8% owned, Desperation Pickup) – Floyd is making the most of starter Chris Chambers being out and has a touchdown in the past two games (along with a 70 yard average.) San Diego plays in London this coming weekend, so expect Chambers to try his hardest to get out on the international stage, but Floyd will continue to get some looks.

    Josh Morgan, WR, 49er’s (2.5% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – The rookie showed promise in the preseason, but hasn’t lived up to the hype until this past weekend, where he had five catches for 86 yards and a touchdown. As he gains more experience, expect him to become a bigger part of this offense. He’s a great keeper league prospect at this point. (More …)

      I am in quite a predicament. No thanks to that MORON Kellen Winslow. I have to keep added another TE each week with his injuries/illness and stupid suspension. I have managed to reap the benefits of the waiver wire each week and am tied in first in my league. These are the RB that I have. I need to drop 2 of them to make room for a kicker and a TE. Now one of them I have no problem getting rid of, it is the 2nd one that is giving me trouble.

      Maurice Jones-Drew – mighty mouse is staying
      Steve Slaton – money maker
      Jonathan Stewart – hit or miss, but still love the schedule for rest of the year
      Sammy Morris – after last week I love him to take over in NE
      Correll Buckhalter – has amazing value is Westbrook goes down again
      Dominic Rhodes – I have no problem dropping him since the next 3 opponents are TEN, NE, and PIT.
      Deuce McAllister – would suck to lose because Bush is out 2-4 weeks and they have SD, then a bye week and come back to face ATL and KC.

      My real problem is after Rhodes who would I drop….

      Buckhalter and hope I can pick him up again the next day. Or McAllister and just run with what I have left and possibly get him the next day. I hate this decision.

      Sammy Morris is out 3- 3 weeks, McAllister may be out 4 weeks with his looming suspension

    Week 7 Weekend Wrap-up: Running backs gone wild! 

    After staying up late to watch my favorite baseball team lose to the Tampa Bay Rays (!) last night, I’m not sure I’ll be able to handle staying up for what will most likely be a disaster of a game tonight when the Fantasy Football Librarian‘s boys from Denver come into Gillette Stadium to take on the Patriots…but I’ll give it a shot. The good news is that even though the Sox are done and the Pats chances tonight are not all that promising, the fantasy football gods seemed to shine down on me this week and I should pull off some solid victories in most of my leagues (although the fact that Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall having huge games against New England would help many of my teams causes quite the personal conflict!), including a potential victory in which I idiotically started Larry Fitzgerald on a bye. Anyways, enough of my rambling about New England sports and my fantasy teams, let’s get to the action from the weekend that caused my good fortunes, including a few running backs gone wild!

    • Tennessee 34, Kansas City 10: I was pretty pumped about this game for one reason…the Chiefs helped me break the FFGeekBlog Hits/Misses cover curse! Kansas City came into this game allowing 180+ yards per game on the ground and what do you know…the Titans nearly doubled that average with 330+ yards. Hopefully you took my advice and started LenDale White (149 yards, 3 TD) and Chris Johnson (168 yards, TD), as you were rewarded heavily. (More …)

      “All I know is that if Buffalo keeps winning games that they are supposed to lose, the Patriots are going to have a hard time chasing them down for first place!”

      Well then I have good news for you sir… there aren’t going to be many games from this point on that people will say Buffalo is “supposed to lose.”

      Including a coupla matchups I particularly look forward to in weeks 10 and 17…
