    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 13, 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, but 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.

    J.J. Arrington, RB, Cardinals (11.6% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – Tim Hightower still has a hold on the “starter” designation, as well as the goal-line carries, but with the team passing the ball so much and Hightower running so ineffectively, it’s Arrington who could have the most value heading into the playoffs. If you’re a Hightower owner, you want Arrington on your roster for sure insurance if anything.

    Maurice Morris, RB, Seahawks (15.7% owned, Desperation Pickup) – He had a big game on Sunday, but with a short week ahead it could be Julius Jones that gets the bulk of the carries. You should not be relying on a player like Morris to get you into the playoffs, but maybe you are… (More …)

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 12, 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, but 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.

    J.J. Arrington, RB, Cardinals (1.8% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – Rookie Tim Hightower just hasn’t gotten it done the past two weeks and we’re starting to wonder if he’s really starter-material. With Kurt Warner opening the field up dramatically with the passing game, Hightower should have all the room in the world to run the ball, but the numbers just aren’t there. On Sunday, J.J. Arrington was able to weasel some carries from Hightower (including a touchdown) and did fairly well with them. If Hightower continues to struggle, look for Arrington’s carries to increase steadily.

    Deion Branch, WR, Seahawks (9.2% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – Branch finally played another game this season…and survived! He ended up the game with over 50 yards and as he gets more playing time, he should get more comfortable in the offense and put up decent numbers down the home stretch. He’s probably not worth starting right away, but you might pick him up and hide him on your roster to see what he can do. (More …)

      Alright so I picked up Warrick Dunn but today I saw that he has a back injury and that he’s questionable for Sunday. If he becomes probable, I may have to grab him again. So in dropping Dunn, I picked up Ryan Grant who’s been doing relatively well lately. In addition to Grant who’s playing the Saints this week, I also have Chris Johnson and Thomas Jones who are playing each other. Which two should I start: Thomas Jones, Chris Johnson, or Ryan Grant?
      I’m leaning towards starting Grant and then one of the other two. Thomas Jones is going up against the strong Titans defense but Chris Johnson and the whole Titans running game has been struggling these past few games. I need help from my FF guru!

    Ask the Geeks – Week 11 

    Atg ButtonHere are our responses to the first question(s) for the week. Remember, you can always ask us questions by clicking the Ask the Geeks logo on the left sidebar (or this link).

    Shirley asks: I picked up Mark Bradley but am wondering whether I should start him over Lance Moore?  I’m starting Tyler Thigpen so I’m already going to get some points any Thigpen-Bradley connection.

    Brandon’s take: Hey Shirley, although I think Mark Bradley could make for an interesting play in the upcoming weeks, I don’t see how you can start him over Lance Moore. Even with Marques Colston back in action, Moore has obviously developed some good chemistry with Drew Brees and is a proven commodity. Over the course of their last three games, their stats are pretty similar, but before that, Moore was putting up numbers while Bradley was putting up goose eggs. Go with Moore until you see proof that he’s being phased out of the Saints game plan (which I don’t see happening this season!)

      Thanks, Brandon! Everyone’s been telling me to start Bradley over Moore. I just needed someone to side with my gut that’s telling me to start Moore.

      Not a bad game for Lance Moore huh?

    • Shirley 4:08 pm on November 17, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Most definitely, Brandon! I also had some people telling me to start Muhammad over Moore too. Breaston was a disappointment for me but my other players picked up the slack. Also I’m glad that I didn’t give into temptation and started Thigpen over Romo 🙂

      Yeah it was amazing how bad of a game Breaston had considering the insane yardage that Boldin and Fitzgerald racked up!

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 11, 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.

    Mark Bradley, WR, Chiefs (2.4% owned, Desperation Pickup) – Over the past three games Bradley has really developed some good chemistry with quarterback Tyler Thigpen (see below) to the tune of 18 receptions for nearly 190 yards and two scores. While you probably don’t want him starting for your team come playoffs time, he makes a decent injury fill-in until that point.

    Tatum Bell, RB, Broncos (7.0% owned, Desperation Pickup) – With the team running out of options at tailback, the Broncos have signed Bell and with the injury to Selvin Young, he could see touches immediately. I still don’t like the Broncos running game though and wouldn’t recommend you use anyone wearing orange/blue/white in your RB1 or RB2 position at this point, but if you’re REALLY desperate… (More …)

      I must be in a pretty deep league. 13 of these players are already picked from the waiver. 4 of them were even drafted.
