    Attention all ye 0-6 and 1-5 teams: Drop the dead weight 

    It always amazes me how quickly the fantasy football season flies by. Given that most leagues’ playoffs start in week 14, next week’s games will mark the midway point of the regular season.

    If your fantasy team is at the bottom of the standings right now, you no longer have the luxury of waiting for high-ceiling players to pan out. Painful as it may be, it’s time to plug the holes in your lineup by trading your prized prospects for players you can start right away. From this point forward, treat every week like it’s your last – because realistically, if you lose, it probably is.

    Here are a few examples of high-potential players you might be hoarding on your bench, along with some potential trades you could offer for less-exciting players who could help you right away. (More …)

      Oh I was 0-3 and clawed back to 2-3 thanks mainly to Brandon and I went down narrowly to go 2-4, I am devo’d! Megatron injury owned me! Jacobs continually hurts! I ended up going with Northcutt as my fill in WR which wasn’t bad but Breaston (who Brandon recommended) would have just about won me the game. As an Aussie Sunday 1o clock games are 3am and he was questionable so I needed a sure thing, I should have just stayed awake picked up Breaston and if he was injured quickly dropped him for Northcut! Nooooo!

      This week, my waiver D? Pats, Bears, Panthers, Cowboys?

      SO DESTROYED! Have to turn it around! Cheers guys

          As much as I love the Pats D/ST against TB, I totally agree with Matt on the Panthers. If you’re 2-4, make a splash and take a chance on a big return with little investment. They’re disposable after this week, so keep picking up a D/ST with the best matchup week-to-week. Save your top waiver wire claims for your most needy positions.

      • Matt 9:08 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I hate to say it, but the Panthers could be in for a big week at home against the Bills, who will be starting either a concussed Trent Edwards or an unknown commodity in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Considering that the Panthers are second only to the Giants in stopping the pass and the Buffalo o-line is as green as they come, this seems like a situation ripe for QB turnovers and sacks.

      • Brandon 10:26 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with either the Patriots or Panthers…both should do well.

    • Mal 8:39 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Also my 3 top WR are on bye this week (would you believe it!)

      fill ins so far are
      Roy Williams
      Pierre Garcon

      need to pick 1 (possibly 2 if you think the above aren’t gonna cut it) more up off the waivers, who do you suggest, names available are..

      Mike Wallace
      Earl Bennet
      Ted Ginn
      Massaquoi
      Caldwell

      • Brandon 10:29 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Massaquoi and Wallace, although I’m not sure I’d start either over Garcon this week against the Rams. Go for Massaquoi and hope Derek Anderson doesn’t have another 2 completion day!

        • Mal 8:32 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Waivers went out before this I missed Wallace and Got Earl Bennet but Massaquoi still available, god Anderson better not dud it up again. I might be able to sneak a trade with house mate who has benched
          Donnie Avery
          Michael Crabtree
          this week. Either a better option?

      Another 2-4 team like me wants to trade a WR for an RB. In 9-deep bench/12-team league, I have DeAngelo Williams, Moreno, R Rice, J Stewart and K Smith at RB (my best WRs are Driver, Bowe and S Smith-Car); he has Ocho, Andre Johnson, Jennings, A Gates (only good RB Barber). Who can I get for Williams? Who can I get for Rice? We have a flex WR/RB slot so he’s okay with just Barber.

      You guys rock! Thanks.

      • Matt 9:13 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t trade DeAngelo Williams straight up for any of those WRs, even though I’m a big Andre Johnson fan; there would need to be some sort of package deal involved. As for Rice, you should be able to get Ochocinco or Jennings for him (I’d prefer Ocho).

        • Squish 6:59 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, Jennings or the Ocho for rice is reasonable. Try trading Kevin Smith for one of the two and you’ll get a major upgrade to your team.

    • Ken 12:33 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m 5 – 1 and 1 – 5 in my fantasy teams heh. For my crap team, would you suggest going for a big trade to try and salvage, or you think I can get by on my WR’s.

      QB
      Warner
      Cutler

      WR
      Fitzgerald
      Jennings
      Sims-Walker
      Breaston
      Hester
      Knox
      Hakeem Nicks

      RB
      Leon Washington
      Mike Bell
      Sammy Morris (waiting for the word on wednesday to drop him)
      Jamal Lewis

      TE
      Finley

      K
      Keading

      DEf
      NYJ

      Im hoping Ive beefed up my Receiver set enough to stay competitive and start winning, but you think I should try and pitch a big guy like fitzgerald for a number 1 RB if possible? Or perhaps a sims-walker for a number 2 back?

      Thanks!

      • Brandon 10:35 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would definitely try to upgrade at the running back position, as you’re in dire need of some help there, while you’re stacked at WR. Hakeem Nicks should be solid for the rest of the year. You might package Sims-Walker and Hester or something for a good running back.

        • Amir 4:30 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’m actually more of a fan of trading a Fitzgerald. He’s the biggest WR name you have out there and in many fantasy leagues the fact that hes Larry Fitzgerald and was drafted so early will get you the most value in terms of a trade

          Haha just my train of thought

        • Ken 4:35 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          yea thats exactly what I was thinking. Either trade Fitzgerald 1 to 1 for a solid #1 back, or sims and hester or sims and knox for a decent back. Thanks guys

        • Ken 5:03 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          fitzgerald and hester for MJD sound good?

        • Amir 11:24 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          i would go for it

    • Ken 12:35 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      just to clarify, my league is a ppr and has 1 qb, 3 wr, 2 rb and 1 flex spot, plus k, te, def.

    • Mal 12:40 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      i’d rank those WR

      Andre
      Ocho
      Gates
      Jennings

      However the first 3 are relatively effective where as Jennings is kind of stinking it up, so he should have the least trade value. Obviously you should try get what you can for williams in that order but with jennings being the most realistic. You probably already knew that though 🙂

    • Tom 1:19 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need a good WR, I’ve got C Johnson, Hester, Maclin, Gonzales, Cotchery, and Kenny Britt. Available are: Mike Wallce, Torry Holt, Steve Breaston, Mark Clayton, Jacoby Jones, and George Wilson..(of the upper stats anyway). What do you guys think? I’m 2-4 now and playing in a pretty evenly matched league. Around a 100 overall points difference between best and worst teams. I have Roethlisberger, Turner, Portis (regrettably), Hester, Maclin, T Gonzales, Packers, and Gostkowski as my starters… thanks in advance for any input..

      • Brandon 10:32 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Honestly, I wouldn’t drop any of those guys except maybe Derrick Ward and Dustin Keller. However, why do you want a hurt running back that plays for the Raiders?

    • Ali 11:56 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I am hurting on bye’s this week…. Mccoy has been sitting my bench the season. However, I have to play him this week b/c bye’s. Should I suck it up and play him or try and pick up: F. Jackson, M. Bell, J. Harrison, J. Fargas. K. Faulk and hope for more points?

      • Matt 4:37 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        McCoy’s not a good pick this week and if you can plug someone else in, you should. Most of the guys you named have a better shot of doing something in their games. Jackson could be a sleeper – I like both Buffalo backs this week as the Bills will probably try and run the ball as much as they can, given Carolina’s excellent pass defense and their shaky QB situation. He’s the best bet of the guys you named.

    • John 12:04 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      What is the outlook of Greg Jennings? especially with the influence of Donald Driver.

      I have MJD and MSW, and since I don’t want a RB and WR from same team, I’m thinking about trading MSW for Jennings? Is that a good trade based on Jennings’s future production?

      • Matt 4:44 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        MSW… MSW… took me forever to figure out that you meant Mike Sims-Walker. Shouldn’t a guy have to be on the scene longer than a few nanoseconds before he gets his own acronym? 🙂

        Tough call on that trade – I’d probably hold on to the guy you’ve got; Jennings is a question mark right now and Sims-Walker is suddenly the focal point of his team’s offense. Why don’t you want a RB and WR on the same team? There’s nothing wrong with that, generally speaking.

      • Squish 12:01 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d stand pat. You may be able to get Jennings for cheaper within the next few weeks and there is definitely nothing wrong with owning players from the same team. In fact, it generally makes the team as a whole more consistent which is a good thing.

      hey guys – steered me wrong last week 😛 but I will forgive and give you another shot (I’m still in 2nd place) — need help once again this week: standard non-ppr league chris johnson is on a bye – so I’m left with ronnie brown, benson, and felix jones – and WR’s are moss and colston (def starting them) and backups are walter and massaquoi..who should get that flex spot (jones, massa, or walter)?

      • Matt 4:49 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Depends on Jones’ knee. If he looks OK by Friday, he’s the best option of those three.

        • Squish 12:02 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’d say Massaquoi is the safe play.

      My other running backs are: Gore, Coffee, Jerome Harrison, Mike Bell, Mewelde Moore

      • Amir 11:26 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldnt do this trade — Brady and Moss seem to have found rhythm and if that continues Moss will be a top tier WR — I like mendenhall too but giving up Moss for him is just too much

    • Dan 1:32 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Given the match up that NE has i would not trade RM. And what do you all think? Breaston over Nicks for week 7? I don’t like the matchup that Breaston has. Going against NYG that is ranked number 1 in YPG or Nicks that is going against Arizon that is ranked 31 in passsing. i dont like that Nicks is in a time share with Manningham tho. What do you think?

      • Glory Hog 2:38 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Manningham is hurting a bit, so Nicks is a good start against AZ in my opinion.

        If i’m going to trade Moss for a RB I have to do it this week because the guy offering Mendenhall is screwed with byes and is desperate. I agree Moss will be huge this week, but is it worth getting Mendenhall as my RB2 with Gore since I my WR should be good with A. Johnson, Celek, Mason?

      • Matt 8:29 am on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think there’s hope for this team. You might test the waters with Forte and see if you can package him into a deal for a RB who has been a more consistent performer – there may be an owner in your league willing to take a risk on him.

      • Matt 8:31 am on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Also depends how much risk you’re willing to take. See my response to CT above – Forte is a high-risk, high-potential player right now, with the risk being that the Bears might not figure out a way to run the ball effectively all season.

        I’d make that trade. Ray Rice is quickly turning into a stud, and Welker’s going to be a monster now that Brady’s throwing the ball well again.

    The Wire – Week 7: Shiancoe on the Move 

    Here are our waiver wire candidates for week seven. As usual, you’ll find players who are either [Startable], a [Stopgap] to get you past a BYE or injury, [Worth a look] and spot on your bench, or [One-week-wonder]s who don’t warrant a roster spot, so you make your roster moves accordingly. You’ll also see the percent owned in parenthesis (and if you see an asterisk by the players name, it means they’re on a BYE this week.)

    This week there are again a ton of receivers on the list, with many of them not worth a roster spot at the moment (but you’ll still want to keep an eye on them.) At the other positions though, you can see that the talent is getting pretty thin, so keep that in mind when putting in your waiver claims. We start with one of Brett Favre’s favorite red-zone targets…

          You’re welcome. I picked up Sammy Morris last week and he got injured. Darren Sproles happens to be on the waiver wire so should I grab him, or Wells? Maroney’s on there too but you only listed him as a stopgap. I have relatively solid RBs, just need a decent bench player that I can maybe play for matchups or whatever. Thanks.

        • Squish 2:09 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Shirley, I’d stay away from Sproles as Tomlinson’s role will be near back to normal next week. Wells is also a liability since all signs point to him having little to no involvement in the Arizona offense for the rest of the year

          If you need a guy for just this week, then Maroney is your man. Judging by the players you listed, it sounds like your waiver wire is pretty dry. Nevertheless, Fargas is a decent option too if he’s available. All signs point to him being the workhorse in Oakland in the coming weeks.

        • Shirley 5:20 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks for your reply, Squish. I didn’t see your reply until now but I did end up going with Maroney.

        Call me crazy, but for some reason I think Laurence Maroney will have a great game against the Bucs in front of the Brits this Sunday. If you don’t want to take the risk though, I prefer Ricky Williams at home over the Mike “Vulture” Bell.

        • Squish 2:06 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Agreed. I grabbed Maroney as a bye week fill-in in several leagues. Quite honestly he pretty much has to get the ball with Morris out. Something tells me the the Patriots will be in garbage time by the 3rd quarter which makes him an even better option.

      i gotta a big question and would love the advice i got a trade offer. i am being offered Fitz, Fred Jackson, and Willie Parker for Brandon Jacobs, and Brandon Marshall.
      should i pull the trigger? i got depth at WR with smith(nyg), L.Moore, D. Mason, and Knox. but i need RB hlep has Forte is weak right now. thanks a lot

      • e-roc 8:17 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        It’s a net deal on the RB-front, but I would absolutely take the trade to upgrade Marshall to get Fitz!!!!

      • Brandon 9:07 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not sure I can agree with E-Roc on this one. Brandon Jacobs should improve over his current numbers this year, meaning you will start him and Forte more often than you would Fred Jackson and/or Willie Parker. I’d stick with the guys you have unless you can exchange Fred Jackson and Willie Parker for a true RB1.

      • Squish 2:04 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Stay away unless you really love Fitz. Marshall will score near as many points so it’s not much of an upgrade. As Brandon said, Jacobs will be picking up speed sometime soon and its a major downgrade at RB if you accept the trade.

        Fred Jackson is slowly being phased out of the run game by Buffalo and Willie Parker just lost his starting job when Mendenthal was announced the team’s new starter from here on out.

    • ffgeekblogROCKS 1:58 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey, guys! A desperate guy in my league is looking to trade Jason Witten! I need your awesome advice on which players on both of our respective teams we can mix and match to make it work out!

      My team (johnson & johnsons): Romo, AnJohnson, CalJohnson, ChrJohnson, LarJohnson, RBrown, Olsen, Bradshaw, DWard, Avery, Garcon, LMoore, Royal, Garrard

      His team: Witten, Shaub, Boldin, Peterson, Hightower, JFinley, Nicks, Warner, Holmes, Wallace, Hester, Sproles.

      Should I make some mega multi-player deal happen involving Chris Johnson/Matt Schaub, or do I stay put and play on with what I have? you guys are THE.FREAKING.BEST! thank you in advance!

      • Brandon 9:14 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        It looks like the guy could use an upgrade at running back, but if you give up Chris Johnson or Ronnie Brown, you’ll be in a similar boat.

        I see that he wants to offload Witten because he thinks he has a solid TE in Jermichael Finley, so you need to use that to your advantage and try to get the upper hand in any trade. If you come up with any ideas, let us know and we’ll give you our feedback, but otherwise it’s a bit tough to dream up possible scenarios.

      • Squish 2:00 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d target Hightower. He has a great playoff schedule and it’s never too early to start thinking about the playoffs.

        Try to package LJ and Garcon for Hightower and Hester (both undervalued). It may just be doable. Even LJ and Garcon for Hightower and Finley would help your team I think.

        Don’t go after Schaub. Right now his price is far too high and Romo will be fine anyway. If you can’t get Hightower then don’t even bother.

    • B Cole 11:11 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey guys. Like the site, could use a little help down the stretch.

      -What do you think Jerricho Cotchery will do down the stretch? Is he worth hanging on to, or should I drop him in favor of Berrian or Moore or someone?
      -What about Matt Forte, or as I’ve taken to calling him, “Khan”? Can I get anything decent in a trade, or am I stuck with him?

      • Squish 1:53 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hang on to Cotchery for at least another week to see what the offense looks like with him and Braylon playing. I have a hunch that he may actually have increased production with less of a coverage blanket.

        I’m sorry to hear you are a Forte owner. I suppose all is not lost but you need to trade him ASAP. His playoff schedule stinks and he just did nothing during the easy part of his year. Try going high at first. You may be able to entice a Rice owner to trade if that team happens to need a by week RB. Scale your way through the ranks. Try for Slaton, Benson, Marion Barber, Kevin Smith, and even Mendenthal (who just got named the starter). You have some time yet but don’t keep your expectations too high. I’d say take what you can get.

        I love Lance Moore for the rest of the season, so if you can get him on your squad, do it ASAP. However, is Cotchery the only option you have in terms of getting him? If you think you can wait a week, then do so, but you might miss the Lance Moore boat if you wait too long (he’s already picked up in waivers of all my leagues this week.)

        As for Matt Forte, he won’t have any trade value until he starts putting up numbers (or if you have a huge Bears fan in your league.) Keep him and hope he turns things around in times for a late season push.

      Got a problem coming up in week 10 when both Andre Johnson and Steve Smith (the good one this year) have a bye. Does it make sense to try to trade one for Hines Ward?

      Should I trade (in a non-ppr league):
      Randy Moss/Michael Bush for Rashard Mendenhall/Derrick Mason?
      My other receivers are (no TEs): Brent Celek, Andre Johnson, Percy Harvin
      My other running backs are: Gore, Coffee, Jerome Harrison, Mike Bell, Mewelde Moore

        While I hate the idea of giving up Randy Moss (I think he’ll be huge for the rest of the year), this trade would definitely boost your RB group. Could you possibly get a little better receiver than Mason? Also, where are you in the standings? If you’re at the bottom of the league, you might consider this trade a bit more readily than if you’re one of the top guys. At face value though, I think I’m leaning towards recommending you make this trade.

          I’m 3and3 and tied for first in my division. The other receivers the guy has are: Marshall (who he won’t trade), Cotchery, Mason, and Holt.
          I might be able to squeeze another back like Lesean McCoy or Jamal Lewis out of him for one of my scrubs.
          What do you think? Thanks.

      I need some serious help. I have slaton, maroney, and benson….wr’s i have colston, vjax, miles austin, collie and j knox. I have to have at least two rb’s but I can have 3. Which five of these guys should I start……I’m freakin out____

      • Glory Hog 2:56 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Start: Slaton, Benson, Vjax, Colston, Austin and/or Maroney (flip a coin)

        in my opinion

      • Brandon 8:50 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Glory Hog, but I’d play Laurence Maroney over Miles Austin (or Austin Collie for that matter.)

      I have Marshall & MSW on bye this week, so Steve Smith (CAR), Collie, and Coles have to start. On TE, Carlson is on bye, and I have McMichael. Should I address TE (V Davis) or WR (Austin, Nicks, or
      L Moore) from the waiver wire this week? Thanks!!

      Mendenhall
      Darren Sproles

      i just need to start 2. I have a WR in my flex spot

      in my league its 25 yards for a point for Rb’s. pretty much TD only for Rb’s

      Thanks!

        If you’re looking for touchdowns, I think you have to go with Ricky Williams and Rashard Mendenhall. I’d actually start them no matter the scoring system, but in a TD-heavy league they’re definite starts.

      Frank Gore is healthy and looks like he will play this week against Houston. Should i pick him up as my #1 RB? Who else would be a good choice this week? This week looks like a tough one for most running backs this week in my opinion. The only people that should fare well would be

      Frank Gore
      Michael Turner
      DeAngelo Williams
      Ryan Grant
      Patriots RBs

      • Brandon 3:48 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Ronnie Brown, LT and Thomas Jones as well this week, but I think DeAngelo Williams is my favorite.

    • Brian 3:56 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Should I go Randy Moss or Hines Ward? and I’m trying to pick a #2 RB this week. I have Williams as #1 not quite sold on Gore this week, will see how the ankle holds up. The #2 Rbs that are available
      Tomlinson
      Maroney
      Marshawn Lynch
      Larry Johnson(don’t like him that much)
      clinton portis
      Jonathan Stewart

      • Brandon 2:50 pm on October 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You can’t play both Moss AND Ward? Go with Randy Moss if you can’t, as he has the most potential for multi-touchdown games. As for your running back, I like Maroney the most out of that group, although I also like LT and Stewart has a great match-up.
