    If you’re looking for a defense to ride the rest of the year, look no further than the New England Patriots, who could potentially play the following quarterbacks:

    11: Tyler Palko
    12: Vince Young
    13: Curtis Painter
    14: Rex Grossman or John Beck…who cares
    15: Tim Tebow
    16: Matt Moore

    As bad as the Patriots were defensively early in the year, they’ve started to improve quite a bit recently and it should only continue 🙂

      tebow or dalton?

    • Kjax 9:17 am on November 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I picked up tebow off of waiver wire and have been very pleased. Even starting him over rivers and big Ben! so yes. He runs a whole lot which equals lots of points. And, the boy just wins!!

      OK, trade offered. I give Jordy Nelson / Bradshaw / Battle , I get Maclin / Fred Jackson.

      Seems pretty solid to me and I am hurting at RB, but losing Jordy who is arguably now a WR1 is tough.

        That’s a tough one, but you upgrade pretty good at running back. Can you just trade Bradshaw and Battle for Jackson by chance? Who are your other receivers? Can you afford to lose Nelson?

        • Mike 10:06 am on November 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          No, its Nelson or nothing. I still have Colston, Holmes, Decker, Brown and Crabtree PLUS i get Maclin. So I slightly downgrade at WR. Colston is a definite WR1, Maclin and Brown are WR2s and Holmes, Decker (Could be a 2, but not sure about passing game) and Crabtree are WR3s

      Little help please!! Just lost Schaub(Picked up Leinart) and have Mark Sanchez… 8-2 and have clinched a playoff spot… Should I look to make a trade for a QB?? Got quite a few hurt players left though… do you think i can/ should package any of these together??? Or stick with the QB’s I have??
      Rest of my Team is
      Dez Bryant, Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Smith(Car), Hey-ward-Bey, Julio Jones……Ray Rice, Michael Bush, Ryan Mathews, Aahmad Bradshaw…..
      Any advise is appreciated!! Thank you!

        I would try to package a few guys for a quarterback. Just like Mark Sanchez will never lead the Jets to a Superbowl win, I doubt he leads your team to a fantasy championship 🙂

          Rivers is really the only decent QB on someones bench. His owner needs a RB bad!! What do you think would not be giving up too much. Especially with the injury to Bradshaw and Mcfadden possibly comming back soon. If I give up Mathews, I may be without a packup…. what are your thought??.. thanks in advance!!

    As next week will be week 12 in the NFL, there is a good chance that some of your fantasy teams are already mathematically eliminated from making the playoffs in your leagues. If you happen to be in this scenario, but also happen to be in a keeper/dynasty league, make sure to check out the wide receivers on our waiver wire post this week, as there are some good targets to stock up for next year!

    The Wire: The (Lance) Ball is in your court! 

    This season I’ve continued to tweak the format of the waiver wire list, so pay attention! I’ve organized it by position now, since that probably makes more sense when you’re trying to fill a particular position. In terms of the color coding: green are guys to target, yellow are guys that are less-than-spectacular, but you can plug-in if necessary, and red are one-hit-wonders you can ignore.

    Here is the waiver wire advice for this week in Google Doc spreadsheet format if that’s the way you prefer to digest it.

    Remember, Pickemfirst is a great browser plug-in to use with our waiver wire lists!

      i’m thinking of trading Jones-Drew for Newton straight up. what do you think?

      I’m thinking of keeping Murray since he seems to be really shining. No more news on Felix Jones… I had Murray benched in favor of Fred Jackson because I thought Murray and Jones would share looks… still won this round, but it hurt me inside.

      BTW, what do you think of Fred Jackson? He was kind of disappointing this week, and though I know he’s really good, someone was saying that he might not do well later in the season once it gets cold.

      Injuries are ruining my team this year, especially now with news that Schaub is out indefinitely (and probably for the rest of the season). So, who do you think I should pick up to take his place. My other QB is Andy Dalton. The available QBs are McCoy, Cassel, Jackson, Ponter, Skelton, Beck, Orton, Palmer, Grossman, Gabbert.

      I am leaning toward Palmer, but this is really a crappy situation. In line to make the playoffs in what is my rookie season, but now I’m not so sure.

      • Neil 11:20 pm on November 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        And if i attempt to go for a trade, who do you think i should target without having to give up too much? Eli Manning, Romo, Smith, Cutler?

        • Brandon 6:00 pm on November 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I like Eli over the rest in that group. Pick up Carson Palmer immediately though.

          • Neil 6:38 pm on November 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Picked up Palmer after I wrote this. Will try to put something together to get Eli. Thanks for reinforcing my initial thought, Brandon! Appreciate it!

            Does Andy Dalton and BJGE sound like a fair trade for Eli?

            • Anthony 2:17 pm on November 16, 2011 Permalink
