    The Wire – Week 3: Plaxico who? 

    Here’s our waiver wire recommendations for week two, starting with a pair of receivers who seemed to have solved the questions the Giants had at the position. As I mentioned last week, The Wire is organized into four categories: Get ’em in there, Pick up and hold, Stopgaps, and Pretenders. “Get ’em in there” are the players worth of a start right away, while “Stopgaps” are the players who will get you through a short-term injury or bye week. “Pick up and hold” is just what is sounds like and “Pretenders” are those players who might have had one good week and immediately picked up in every Yahoo Public league out there…don’t waste a roster spot and waiver claim on them. This week I’ve added the Yahoo! ownership rank (in parenthesis) for each player so you know which guys have a better chance of being available in your league. Anyways, here we go…

    Get ’em in there

    • Mario Manningham, WR, Giants (58%) – He’s rocketed up from being a “Pretender” to having me believe he and Smith will be the Giants top receivers this season.
    • Steve Smith, WR, Giants (70%) – Looks like he’s become Plaxico Burress’ replacement and should be Eli’s top target all year.
    • Correll Buckhalter, RB, Broncos (48%) – As long as he stays healthy, it looks like Buckhalter is the man in Denver. He’s worth starting as a borderline RB2 or flex play based on the match-up.
    • Brent Celek, TE, Eagles (49%) – Celek showed some skills last season and it has apparently carried over, as he’s now put up solid numbers in two straight weeks. If you’re not getting production out of your current tight end, give Celek a try.

      Another good waiver list! Mine always seem quite a bit shorter but you hit on every guys I’d consider grabbing.

      I’m currently big on Manningham and Knox at WR but I’m only watching everyone else. Henderson is looking good now but I have to believe that Brees will let up eventually and when he does, the WR situation in NO will be a crapshoot. Colston’s presence increased ad Moore is still out. I have to believe that once things even out in NO, Henderson won’t be much better than an WR3. Manningham and Knox however could easily grab WR2 status.

      At RB I agree for the most part. Bell is now a must own. I think its a little early to pick up Forsett even if he starts next week. I have Buckhalter in several leagues but its hard to believe Moreno won’t start getting the better half of the carries eventually. I wish I was lucky enough to be in a league with Brown unowned lol. Another suggestion to think about, Darren Sproles. I realize he should be owned in every league but I found him on waivers in better than half of my FleaFlicker leagues.

      I think we can all agree that the glass is full when it comes to TEs. I’d only consider picking up Celek at the moment but in deeper leagues Heap is worthwhile too.

      I was surprised not to see any QBs on your list. Surely Leftwich is at least worth picking up and holding. He’s ranked 10th right now in most formats just ahead of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. The best part is that there is no way his offense can get any worse. If anything it will get better and he’s made the most of having Winslow as a target. Once Bryant gets up to speed, watchout! I’m grabbing him in all leagues that I’m weak at QB2. He was always the better of the two QBs in Jacksonville before. Watch him easily surpass Garrard this year. He’s easily worth dropping Sanchez among others (Delhomme, Pennington, Campbell).

      On another note, I have a question. Would you guys consider dropping either Walter, S. Moss, or Eddie Royal in standard leagues to pick up one of the WRs mentioned on your list? Also, is it dump time for J. Jones or Olsen yet?

        Good point on the lack of quarterbacks, maybe the site malfunctions have distracted me a bit or something! Anyways, I’m still not sold on David Garrard. Who is he even throwing the ball to besides Kellen Winslow and Michael Clayton? Running backs? He might fit my “Stopgap” category, but I’m not sure I can put him any higher than that until he proves he has some consistency.

        P.S. Cross your fingers that your recent comments aren’t deleted if Lunarpages decides to screw up the site again!!!

        In terms of your receivers, at this point I’d drop pretty much any of those receivers for Steve Smith and would consider dropping Kevin Walter for Mario Manningham. As for Greg Olsen and Julius Jones (is that who you mean?), I’d hang on to Jones at this point, but I’ve almost lost faith in Olsen as a top-tier tight end this season. While he might do alright, there are many other TE’s out there already putting up solid numbers.

      One quarterback I would think about putting in the Stopgap category this week is Seneca Wallace, who will be starting for the Seahawks this weekend with Matt Hasslebeck not expected to play.

      I have Earl Bennett (CHI) on my bench right now. I’m thinking about dropping him to pick up Johnny Knox since Knox has a higher fantasy point average and his lowest fantasy points for either week were higher than Bennett’s highest in a week.

      LIST OF SOME THAT ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WAIVER WIRE: Brandon Stokley, Nate Burleson, Chansi Stuckey, Kelley Washington, Jason Avant, Miles Austin, Antwaan Randle El, Kenny Britt, Julian Edelman, Davone Bess, Bobby Wade.

        It’s still a toss up as to who Jay Cutler will select as his favorite wide receiver in Chicago, but Johnny Knox is probably the favorite at this point. I’d rather have Knox on my team than Bennett at this point though, so I’d make the move. None of the other names on that waiver wire list really interest me a whole lot besides Nate Burleson (if Hasselbeck was healthy) and Davone Bess (only useful in PPR leagues.)

      I traded T.J for Percy Harvin what you think?

      • Brandon 10:11 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Interesting. I’m not sure I would have traded someone you drafted so early for Percy Harvin, who is still a big question mark for the season, but it could turn out to work for you. So far Housh hasn’t done that much through the first two games and now Hasselbeck is hurt, so it could get worse before it gets better.

      also should i drop LJ for Justin Forsett… also drop Earl Bennett for Glen Coffe?

      • Brandon 10:12 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        How about you drop Earl Bennett for Justin Forsett? I think Forsett has more value than Coffee and LJ has more value than Bennett.

      lookin for a RB/WR play: McFadden or Johnny Knox?

      • Brandon 1:37 pm on September 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with McFadden. I’m not liking the Bears passing game this week against the Seahawks in Seattle.

    Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall has been suspended by the team, although the duration has not been specified yet, reports Mike Florio from ProFootballTalk. The maximum length of the suspension can be up to four games and if that is the case, his fantasy football stock takes a major hit. However, Eddie Royal and Brandon Stokley’s stock should be boosted quite a bit. Our wide receiver cheat sheet has been updated accordingly.

    Update: Looks like his suspension is only for the remainder of the preseason, but I’m not quite sure how that benefits the team at all unless they simply want to prevent him from distracting the rest of the team. He’s just going to know less of the playbook and have ZERO chemistry with Kyle Orton. Maybe he’ll get traded? I can’t move him up our rankings until some positive news comes out regarding Mr. Marshall.

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 6, 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.

    (Due to technical difficulties, only the names of the week 6 players are on the list now…and by technical difficulties I mean I deleted it by accident! Anyways, you should be looking at the week 7 waiver pick-ups now anyways.) (More …)

    Week 4 Weekend Wrap-up: Favre keeps on truckin' 

    Before I go into any thoughts on the games from the weekend, I have one question: Has there ever been a week in the NFL where the combined age of the four quarterbacks playing in two games (Jets vs Cardinals, Vikings vs Titans) was greater than this week? This weekend we saw Brett Favre (38), Trent Green (38), Kurt Warner (37), Gus Frerotte (37), and Kerry Collins (35) all out there trying to show young whipper-snappers across the league how the game is played…with varying degrees of success (or failure). Anyways, let’s get into what transpired this weekend, starting with the barn-burner that took place as the Arizona Cardinals came into town to battle the Jets:

    • Jets 56, Cardinals 35: You would never have guessed that the score to this game was 0-0 after the first quarter…but it was. Six Brett Favre touchdowns and 472 Kurt Warner passing yards (or whatever percentage he got after the first quarter) later, you end up with the final score of 56 to 35. Without going into too much more detail (you can see the stats for yourself), let’s just say that anyone who started Laveranues Coles, Jericho Cotchery, Edgerrin James, Larry Fitzgerald, or Anquan Boldin were not disappointed. Nor were the crazy Cardinal homers who started Steve Breaston or Jerheme Urban…if any actually exist (P.S. You’ll find Breaston on the waiver wire list this week…especially if Boldin misses any games after suffering a bad helmet-to-helmet hit.)  (More …)

    Brandon Marshall: Just another day in the life 

    Of all the guys I have to share my name with, it happens to be one of the most talented, young and upcoming receivers in the NFL…but also one of the stupidest. Consider these events that have transpired over the short career of Brandon Marshall, wide receiver for the Denver Broncos:

    • Present the night that teammate Darrent Williams was shot and killed during a drive by following a night out at a club. According to former teammate, Javon Walker, Marshall was spraying patrons with champagne, which started a confrontation that may have led to the shooting (ironically, Javon Walker was spraying patrons with champagne the night he was mugged in Las Vegas)
    • Forced to go to court due to a domestic disturbance with his girlfriend
    • Rough housing with his brother, he slips and slices his arm open. Luckily the injury should be fully healed by the start of the season
    • Arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence while driving down the wrong direction on a one way street
    • Most recently, he was pulled over and cited with making an illegal lane change and driving without a valid license or proof of insurance
