    The Wire: Waiver Wire pickups for week 8, 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.

    Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers (0.8% owned, Desperation Pickup) – Floyd is making the most of starter Chris Chambers being out and has a touchdown in the past two games (along with a 70 yard average.) San Diego plays in London this coming weekend, so expect Chambers to try his hardest to get out on the international stage, but Floyd will continue to get some looks.

    Josh Morgan, WR, 49er’s (2.5% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – The rookie showed promise in the preseason, but hasn’t lived up to the hype until this past weekend, where he had five catches for 86 yards and a touchdown. As he gains more experience, expect him to become a bigger part of this offense. He’s a great keeper league prospect at this point. (More …)

      I am in quite a predicament. No thanks to that MORON Kellen Winslow. I have to keep added another TE each week with his injuries/illness and stupid suspension. I have managed to reap the benefits of the waiver wire each week and am tied in first in my league. These are the RB that I have. I need to drop 2 of them to make room for a kicker and a TE. Now one of them I have no problem getting rid of, it is the 2nd one that is giving me trouble.

      Maurice Jones-Drew – mighty mouse is staying
      Steve Slaton – money maker
      Jonathan Stewart – hit or miss, but still love the schedule for rest of the year
      Sammy Morris – after last week I love him to take over in NE
      Correll Buckhalter – has amazing value is Westbrook goes down again
      Dominic Rhodes – I have no problem dropping him since the next 3 opponents are TEN, NE, and PIT.
      Deuce McAllister – would suck to lose because Bush is out 2-4 weeks and they have SD, then a bye week and come back to face ATL and KC.

      My real problem is after Rhodes who would I drop….

      Buckhalter and hope I can pick him up again the next day. Or McAllister and just run with what I have left and possibly get him the next day. I hate this decision.

      Sammy Morris is out 3- 3 weeks, McAllister may be out 4 weeks with his looming suspension

    Studs and Duds – Week 6: Cassel ready to break out? 

    After taking a sabbatical during week four, I got back on track last week and didn’t fare too badly with my predictions. Although again my title pick didn’t pan out all that great (the Detroit Lions passing game did NOT rebound after the bye week!), and my pick of Clinton Portis to have a rough go of it against the Eagles did not quite work out, big games from Matt Forte and Michael Turner, along with a weak performance (again!) by the Jacksonville running game led me to a pretty decent record for the week. As usual, I’ll be looking to improve again this week, and who better to lead me there but my boy Matt Cassel of the Patriots. So without further ado, here are your studs and duds for week 6…

    Studs

    • Matt Cassel, QB, Patriots: After a few weeks of the main “stud” not living up to their billing (Ryan Grant, Lions), I’m hoping Matt Cassel of the New England Patriots is the one to change my fortunes.  Cassel gave Patriots fans reason to start believing in his abilities with a 66 yard touchdown bomb to Randy Moss last week against a middle-of-the-road 49er’s pass defense. This week his task should be a bit easier as the Patriots play the worst pass defense in the NFL in the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers are allowing 266 yards per game through the air over the first five games of the season and have allowed an average of two touchdowns per game as well. If Cassel can simply get the average, it would be a fairly successful fantasy day. (More …)
