    The Wire – Week 12: Bottom of the Barrel 

    Here are our waiver wire candidates for week twelve. 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 Yahoo! leagues) in parenthesis. All I can say about the cast of characters on this week’s list is that hopefully you don’t have to rely on them too much…otherwise you’re in big trouble.

      Hey all: I am thinking about picking up kevin boss and dropping antonio gates. I am reading that the giants are going to keep looking toward the tight end more while it appears that the chargers are not. What do you think? rob

        I definitely wouldn’t drop a TE with 52 receptions for 709 yards in order to pick up one with 24 catches for 359 yards. Gates might only have two TDs, but Boss just has four. If defenses adjust and key in on Boss the way they often do on Gates, Eli’s just going to go to one of his many, many other options.

      hey the news this week out of detroit doesn’t look well, who should i start this week, Megatron vs. GB or Housh vs STL?

      • Brandon 9:11 am on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If Calvin Johnson actually plays, then I’d go with him, even with Daunte Culpepper likely to start. However, it looks like Johnson won’t be playing either at the moment, making your decision a bit easier 🙂

          I swear that these questions start coming in earlier and earlier every week. At what point can we just say “It’s too early to tell”.

      Here is my team and it needs help! Don’t have WR stars and it’s killing me every week against others who are stacked. Any advice? Meachem is available, Jason Avant, but that’s about it. Who should l hold onto, get rid of, pick up? Snelling is available and tempting to pick up, but I think I am ok with RB’s. PPR in my league and we are only allowed to start 2 RB’s and 3 WR’s. (R)= Reserve

      BTW- Peyton Manning is my QB (I didn’t see him listed)

      • Brandon 4:03 pm on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Feel free to ditch Earl Bennett and Nate Washington (especially with Vince Young at quarterback.) While Washington has found the endzone recently, his upside isn’t high enough to warrant the limited catches he gets each week. I’d actually drop Todd Heap as well so you could grab Meachem, Avant and Snelling (if only to keep other teams from getting him for the time being.)

        No other receivers off my waiver wire list is a free agent in your league? Coles, Wallace, Henderson, etc?

        • Natalie 4:57 pm on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I had Coles in the draft and dropped him (dumb now I know) and someone else picked him up. Wallace is unavailable, but Henderson is available.

        • Natalie 4:58 pm on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Oh, and which do you think most will try and pick up? I think Snelling so should I go for him first or get a receiver for sure?

        • Brandon 3:39 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Did your waivers already clear? Grab Snelling for sure if you have a chance and Henderson as well. You can drop Bennett and/or Washington for them.

      Should I try to get Rock Cartwright or Bernard Scott?

      I have Ryan Moats on my bench on a team with Gore, Ricky Wiliams, Beanie Wells & Slaton. Since Moats didn’t do anything last night, I’d like to replace him with someone to compete with Wells and Slaton for the possible flex slot.
      Or should I also drop Wells so that I can get both Cartwright and Scott?

      • Shirley 1:13 pm on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Oh and I just noticed that Justin Forsett is available. I’m thinking he should be at the top of my list? His next 3 games look pretty good (STL, SF, HOU).

        • Brandon 3:59 pm on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Hey Shirley, I’d keep Beanie Wells, since you know he’s going to see action every week. As for the other guys, Rock Cartwright will start for the Redskins for the rest of the year, as long as he’s healthy, so he’s probably the best add of the group. Justin Forsett and Bernard Scott both have good match-ups on the horizon, but it’s not quite clear what the status of Cedric Benson or Julius Jones are at this point. Keep on eye on the health of those two, as they would make excellent plays if they are named the starters. Long story short, if you need to make a waiver move, the safest is to drop Ryan Moats for Rock Cartwright, with your backup waiver claims being Bernard Scott and Justin Forsett.

    • Scotty 5:02 pm on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon, should I start Lesean McCoy vs. WAS or Kevin Smith vs. GB (in a PPR League)?

      LeSean has an easier matchup & I feel as if Philly will build an early lead & feed him the rock! Smith catches more passes, & puts up decent #s in our PPR League. Everytime I bench Smith, he inevitably finds the endzone & puts up big #s. I realize Stafford & Megatron may be on the shelf, which would allow GB to load the box & key in on Smith. Do you see any reason to start Smith over McCoy?

      Thanks

      • Brandon 3:41 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I honestly have no reason to start him…although I’d prefer you could start someone other than LeSean McCoy instead! However, I’d definitely go with McCoy…if only so you don’t have to sit and stare at a bad score from Smith all the way until Sunday.

      Brandon: Here is my team now after waivers this morning. Unfortunately the guy that beat me last week ended up getting J. Snelling before I could grab him. 🙁

      With this lineup who would you start for RB’s and WR’s? I can have 2 RB’s and 3 WR’s starting. PPR league with 1 pt. for every 10 yrds. 5 pts for TD. RB’s are scored same way. Thanks for your help!

      P Manning QB
      Ricky Williams RB
      B Jacobs RB
      R Williams RB
      B Scott RB
      R. Meachem WR
      D. Henderson WR
      A Collie WR

      J. Avant WR

      Happy Thanksgiving!

      • Brandon 3:36 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Did you list Ricky Williams twice? Anyways, I’d go with Ricky Williams and Brandon Jacobs (with Ahmad Bradshaw out) for your running backs. At wide receiver, go with Devery Henderson, Donald Driver and Steve Breaston.

        • Natalie 5:09 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks Brandon! Yes, I did list Ricky Williams twice, maybe in hope that he will give me another double digit showing like last week. Can’t beat 30 pts from one player! 🙂

    • Jo 12:23 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I need one of these RBs..Mendenhall, P. Thomas, or J. Stewart?? And one WR..Housh(good matchup but he’s killing me), Meachem, B. Edwards, or Manningham? CIN D or DAL D? Thanks. Happy Turkey Day.

      • Brandon 3:32 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Mendenhall, Housh (just hope he gets one of his big yardage or touchdown games) and Cincinnati.

      I am a little concerned with Mcnabb this week. I just picked up Alex Smith. Should I start him over Mcnabb. All common sense tells me no, but the way that the skins held him down last time, I am not sure

      • Brandon 7:54 am on November 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I know common sense (and a lot of other experts) tell you to go with McNabb, I’m leaning towards Alex Smith actually. The Jaguars defense is a heck of a lot worse than the Redskins at slowing down opposing quarterbacks and the last time McNabb faced Washington, he had one of his worst games of the season. I know the Eagles will throw a lot, but I’m thinking the 49ers will as well and Smith could be in for one of his three touchdown games.

    • Lindsay 2:40 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      SO I am concerned about all my positions this week. I have Romo as my QB and he has been seriously lacking the past 2 weeks. My B/U is Orton, but I don’t really want to play him either. I could pick up Hasselback or A. Smith?

      Also for receivers, I need 3, I have Colston, Smith (nyg), L. Evans, Collie, Meacham, Floyd, Bess…I can also get D. Avery of the FA list.
      For RBs I need 2…I have R. Williams(obvious), Forte, R. Cartwright…there isn’t anything on waivers or the FA list except J. Lewis, C. Taylor, K. Faulk and Buckhalter.
      I also need a flex option from the above names.
      I am in a PPR league, so that is the only consolation for Forte since he catches passes more than he runs!
      And for defense I had Arizona, but am looking to pick up another one…Atlanta or Seattle? THX a bunch!

      • Brandon 8:00 am on November 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Sorry we didn’t get to this before the Thursday games Lindsay, but who did you end up playing? I’d start Rock Cartwright over Matt Forte if that is an option. At receiver, go with Marques Colston and Donnie Avery if you can get him still (I’m assuming you already played Steve Smith? For your flex spot, go with Matt Forte and hope he has another 8 catch, 120 yard performance to compliment his 30 yards or so he gets on the ground. For your defense, go with Seattle against Kyle Boller and the Rams for sure.

        • Lindsay 1:04 pm on November 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          No problem…I know you guys are busy…Thx for the response though. I did end up playing ROmo and thankfully he did well. I also played Smith. I picked up Avery but couldn’t get him in my lineup in time, so hopefully both Meacham and Colston pull some good numbers, cause those are the other WRs I have in my lineup besides Smith. I also used Seattle, so we’ll see how that goes too. Thx

    Braylon Edwards traded to Jets 

    Just when you thought the 49ers signing of Michael Crabtree was the biggest news of the day, Braylon Edwards goes and gets traded to the New York Jets for Chansi Stuckey (and more)! This is great news for those of you lucky enough to win the Mohamed Massaquoi (Browns’ rookie receiver) sweepstakes in this weeks waiver wire. However, I’m not sure it helps Jericho Cotchery’s value all that much.

     
    • Bryan 11:43 am on October 7, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      what does this do for chansi stuckey’s value, is he worth a ww pickup, or is mo-ma the new #1 in cleveland?

      • Brandon 11:51 am on October 7, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Stuckey is worth a pick-up if you have someone who you don’t care about dropping. It’s probably worth seeing how Derek Anderson and he can work together first though before picking him up.

    • Squish 1:17 am on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      This trade has me all turned around. I’m thinking now is the best (really only) time you can get good value for Edwards. Most people know Edwards is washed up but some don’t…

      The real fantasy change due to the trade is the value of Massquoi. He becomes Cleveland’s clear WR1 with Stuckey and Furrey fighting over WR2. Nevertheless, Massaquoi has done nothing save last week’s performance and I’m really on the fence about him. Is he worth picking up immediately? My thought is no but I don’t see any way he won’t be a great WR3 at some point in the season. I mean every WR1 on every team is a viable WR3 in fantasy at worst. All I can say is keep an eye on Massaquoi.

      • Brandon 7:58 am on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Massaquoi is definitely worth a roster spot if you have someone easy to part with (Justin Gage, Davone Bess, etc.) We saw a few years ago what a functional relationship between Derek Anderson and his star receiver (Braylon Edwards) can do in terms of fantasy stats, so who knows, maybe this could lead to the same type of thing…although I’m not sure I’d enjoy that, as I was out-waivered for him in ALL of my leagues.

    Wide receivers to watch out for (sleepers) 

    With most fantasy football league drafts complete, it’s time to skim the waiver wire for some players to keep an eye on. If you’re in a Yahoo league, these are the guys you would click the little ‘Add to Watch List’ flag next to their name. I guess you could consider these as “sleeper picks”, but they’re really just guys who have shown promise in the offseason and whose numbers could surprise you when the season is all said and done. I’ve also included a bonus running back waiver wire pickup in case you were interested.

    Wide receivers to watch:

    1. Davone Bess, MIA – Last season Bess ended the year with a respectable 54 receptions, but it was the end of the year where he really shined. Over the last six games of the season, Davone had 35 catches. This year he’s fighting to be the number two receiver alongside Ted Ginn, but in the end he should again be Pennington’s go-to guy and should put up some decent numbers.
    2. David Clowney, NYJ – Apparently he didn’t win the battle to be the #2 receiver for the Jets, but he’s faster than Chansi Stuckey and had a solid preseason. Look for him to get a lot of looks in the passing game no matter where he is on the depth chart.
    3. (More …)

      I am officially on the Hakeem Nicks bandwagon. He apparently just worked his way up to #4 WR on the depth chart and Im surprised he isnt #2. I suppose the Giants want to give former high pick Manningham a shot but Nicks’ pre-season explosion may keep him off the field and push Manningham down the depth chart.

      • Brandon 2:02 pm on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah I agree, I think he’ll move up the depth chart mid-way through the season, but I’m still holding off on my final judgement until we see what this year’s version of the Giants offense is all about.

    Ask the Geeks – Week 4: Bye week blues 

    Atg ButtonHere are some more questions for week four…and again the theme seems to be surviving a brutal bye week (Detroit, Indianapolis, Miami, New England, New York Giants, and Seattle.)

    Jeanne asks: I have a lot of byes this week and quickly need to pick-up….who do you suggest?

    Defense – Green Bay, Bills or Steelers
    WR – Issac Bruce or Chansi Stuckey
    TE – LJ Smith (may be hurt), Jerramy Stevens, Robert Royal

    Brandon’s take: Hey Jeanne, welcome to the club (of people struggling with bye’s this week.) In terms of a team defense, I think you have to take the team that plays against the St. Louis Rams if they’re available…and just you’re luck, the Buffalo Bills are there for the taking. For a receiver pickup, I’m liking Stuckey these days, as he’s getting plenty of looks from Brett Favre (having a touchdown in each game so far this season doesn’t hurt either!) Bruce had a big week two, plus he had a touchdown last week, but the offense is too inconsistent and there’s no telling how he will do from week to week, even if it is against a week Saints defense. Finally, go with Rober Royal as your tight end, as he’s going against a Rams defense that is just as bad as their offense. (More …)

      Yeah this is a tough one this week. I will probably end up with what you say too. But it is hard with Portis going up Dallas D.

    • chris strong 9:16 pm on September 27, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Who should I start J. Delhomme or D. Anderson? I’m a long shot to win this week…and I was thinking take a chance on Anderson, he’s playing for his position against a very bad Defense…what do you think?

    • Brandon 11:44 am on September 28, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @chris: Although he’s been struggling, I have a feeling Derek Anderson will have a solid game this week. Take the risk on him.

    • Brandon 12:01 pm on September 28, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @Bolt: In case you read this before the start of the games, I’m thinking you should go with Graham and MJD over Portis…it looks like Dallas is going to be focused on stopping the run.

    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.
