    Ask the Geeks – Week 4 

    Atg ButtonWell it’s week four and many of you are probably feeling the effect of poor planning when you took three starters that all had the same bye week (don’t worry…you’re not alone!) Anyways, hopefully we can offer you some advice to get you past the bye week blues and maintain your first place spot in the standings…

    Wendy asks: Hey Geeks, I need help picking my #2 wr for week 4. I am playing Cotchery. I can pick up one of these guys off waivers. Who is the best option?

    Chad Johnson vs. Cleveland (huge game vs. them last year, but is injury keeping him from breaking out?)
    Torry Holt vs. Buffalo  (is he worth a shot with trent green the new qb?)
    Donald Driver vs. TB
    Antonio Bryant vs. GB
    Brandon Lloyd vs. Philadelphia

    Thanks!

    Brandon’s take: Hey Wendy, although the stats go against what I’m saying, I have to believe that Mr. Cinco is ready for a break out week. Cleveland hasn’t been known as a defensive powerhouse and Ocho Cinco (the man formerly known as Chad Johnson) is apparently feeling good enough to ditch the shoulder support he was wearing in previous weeks. I think Antonio Bryant is more of a one hit wonder, while Brandon Lloyd and Donald Driver are going against tough defenses. Torry Holt could be in for a long day with Bulger now out of the lineup. Go with Ocho Cinco…the ultimate high risk, high reward play. (More …)

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 4, 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.

    Correll Buckhalter, RB, Eagles (5.6% owned, Desperation Pickup) – Although starter Brian Westbrook’s ankle injury isn’t as bad as initially expected, he’s still listed as day-to-day and there’s a potential he won’t be able to go this Sunday. If you’re a Westbrook owner, you better have Buckhalter on your waiver claim list just in case.

    Brian Griese, QB, Buccaneers (6.9% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – Don’t expect him to throw 60+ times on a regular basis (or ever again most likely!), but you can expect Griese to put up decent fantasy stats if you’re in need of a backup quarterback. The team seems to be focusing on the passing game lately for some reason (just ask Earnest Graham owners), but he’s got some tough matchups the next few games, so you probably won’t want to lean too heavily on him right away. However, late in the season he could be the man who limps your team into the playoffs as he gets to play defensive lightweights such as Detroit and New Orleans.

    Brandon Lloyd, WR, Bears (8.0% owned, Instant Starter) – While Griese was bombing it to Antonio Bryant, Kyle Orton of the Bears was doing just the same to Brandon Lloyd, who seems to be his new favorite receiver. Lloyd has racked up 190 yards and a touchdown on 11 receptions over the past two games and could be a decent WR3 play for the time being.
