    The Wire: Jackie goes to Battle for your team (except next week) 

    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 is guys to target, yellow is guys to wait on (except in deeper leagues) and red is one-hit-wonders.

    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! Anyways, another running back has a breakout week, only to go on a BYE the following week. Always confuses people…

      Which of these WRs to drop for Cruz: Washington, JNelson, A Brown (return yards league – Brown has averaged 12 PTs/game here). I’m leaning Jordy, he’s great but the inconsistency is killing me.

        Of the group, it seems that Nelson has become the most inconsistent, but his upside is also higher than the other two most weeks. Cruz on the other hand has huge upside and his consistency is starting to show itself as he has taken over the WR2 gig from Mario Manningham. If you don’t start him, you might drop Nate Washington who will continue to compete with Jared Cook, more carries for Chris Johnson and second year WR Damian Williams.

          Thanks, Brandon. Any opinions on a D/St of the week – return yards count (1 per 10 kick return, per 20 punt return yards – making even NE a decent D in our league…). Here’s whats out there: Min (@Chi), CIN (vs Indy), Hou (no Mario, @ BAL), Buf @NYG, NE vs Dal, OAK (vsCLE), ATL (vs Car), Mia.

            I’m targeting Cincinnati in some of my leagues this week. Hopefully they should do alright against the Colts at home. Good luck!

        Quick one Percy Harvin or DHB?? Also, If you had to bench two who would you choose; Branch, J Nelson, Holmes, Colston , Wayne, and the winner of the first question?

          I need help…pick two to start….Ryan Grant, Crabtree, Dallas Clark, Kendall Hunter, Massaquoi….I have some byes, and some injuries to flex position.

      Who do you think I should drop to get Moore (QB-MIA). Tarvaris has a bye and I need a fill-in. Torrey Smith (WR), James Casey (RB/TE), Eric Decker (WR – BYE), Jordy Nelson (WR), Mario Manningham (WR), Nate Burleson (WR). The spots with a Bye this week for me are 1QB and 1W/T.

      • Brandon 1:57 pm on October 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Ditch James Casey. The guy had one fluky big game and hasn’t done squat in any other week.

    • Randy 9:59 pm on October 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I’m in a 12-team, standard league; we start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, and 1 RB/WR/TE. Would you consider any QBs mentioned above as an upgrade over Cutler as backup QB? Also, I have Foster, Felix J, Best, Ridley, and Ben Tate at RB, and Fitzgerald, Mike Williams (TB), Harvin, and Manningham at WR. I’m defintely looking to drop Tate for someone, and am considering dropping one of my unproductive WRs as well. What would you do in my shoes? I’m 1-4 in my league, so I’d appreciate any advice you may have… Thanks!!

        P.S. I should mention the names who are available as free agents at this time; QB – Painter, Tebow, Alex Smith, Dalton; RB – Jackie Battle, Delone Carter, Bernard Scott; WR – Heyward-Bey, Doug Baldwin, Steve Breaston, Malcom Floyd, Greg Little. Also, because we don’t have a waiver wire process (we have a free-for-all free agency period staring at 9PM on Tues) I have to be focused and prioritized regarding any moves I make… Thanks again!

          pick up dalton keep ur RBs drop maningham 4 breaston u have a REALY good team i dont know y ur 1-4

      • Brandon 9:42 am on October 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Who is your starting quarterback? If you want a gamble with relatively high upside, go for Tim Tebow (as long as he’s named the starter.) He’ll rack up the rushing yards and get some rushing TD’s in addition to his passing stats. At running back, grab Battle over Tate and possibly Baldwin/Heyward-Bey/Breaston over Manningham…although that’s not a huge upgrade anyways.

        • Randy 10:10 am on October 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks, my starting QB is Romo, so I’m not sure if my backup should be someone with lower risk/reward in case Romo gets injured (since his bye was week 5), or someone with high upside in case I want to insert him on a matchup basis. I feel like “on paper”, my roster is decent, but my WRs in particular are all being shut down it seems…

        • Randy 10:12 am on October 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I’m also curious if you like Jared Cook over Fred Davis at a backup TE. My starter is Vernon Davis… Thanks again!

          • Brandon 1:46 pm on October 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            They’re both going to be fairly inconsistent, but in the short term I like Cook over Davis. If Davis returns from the BYE with a bang though then maybe I switch my allegiances. 🙂

              Thanks for the advice! (and needless to say, I did not post the comment above).

            • james hance 11:02 am on October 12, 2011 Permalink

              then who did?

            • Brandon 11:07 am on October 12, 2011 Permalink

              The answer is you (james hance), as it was one of your hilarious comments that have since been removed from the site.

              how did u kno it was me?

            • Brandon 12:49 pm on October 12, 2011 Permalink

              We are all-knowing…hence the awesome fantasy football advice.

      I just got this offer: he gives me Ingram and Stafford, I give him Jahvid Best and Michael Bush. On the surface it seems like a great deal. I have Matt Ryan and no backup, and I still have Chris Johnson, Mcgahee, Benson, Addai, and Torain. He has Brees so he’s not worried about losing Stafford. Should I push for a better trade or jump on it?

      • james hance 4:39 pm on October 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        try getting a better RB from him jevan best is rly good!

      • Vince 8:41 pm on October 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have Dez Bryant, Wes Welker as my starting WR’s, in reserve I also have Victor Cruz that is sitting on my bench. Most all the experts say start Bryant over Cruz since they’re playing NE Patriots, worst pass defense in the league. Here’s my concern……Miles Austin is back. Jason Witten is playing as well, thoughts???

      greshem or greg olsen?

      • nate 6:28 pm on October 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I like Gresham against colts.

    • Randy 11:32 am on October 12, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Well, after yesterday’s free agency period, I opted to grab Cassel as a backup to Romo (dropping Cutler) and dropping Ben Tate for Heyward-Bey. Thanks for your advice! Just to confirm, if I need to drop one of my WRs in the near future to open up spots elsewhere, would Manningham be the one to sacrifice? And what do you think of Greg Little’s and Mark Clayton’s prospects (once Clayton returns in a week or two)? Thanks again!

    Working on this week’s waiver wire post, but the obvious names that come to mind are Jackie Battle, Jonathan Dwyer and Tim Tebow (if you’re a believer!)
