    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.

      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.

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 10, 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.

    Sage Rosenfels, QB, Texans (1.3% owned, Instant Starter) – It looks like starter Matt Schaub will be out for at least a month, so if you were counting on him to lead you to the fantasy football playoffs, you might want to rethink your strategy. Rosenfels will fill in for Schaub in the meantime and while he’s prone to turn the ball over every once in a while, he’ll still put up decent fantasy stats for your team in this pass-happy offense.

    Jamaal Charles, RB, Chiefs (8.6% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – With Larry Johnson already out, the Chiefs also lost backup Kolby Smith for the season with a knee injury. This means that Mr. Charles and his 106 yard effort on Sunday will be the starter for the rest of the season (or until he also gets hurt.) He still plays for the Chiefs though, so I wouldn’t be too eager to jam him into your lineup right away! (More …)

      How about Culpepper for owners hard up for a QB? He may start this week with Orlovsky getting hurt and his big arm and Calvin Johnson could create some big plays.

      I thought about putting Culpepper on this list, but he’s been out of the game for a while and we’re not even sure he’s starting at this point. If you’re in a deep league, you could consider him, but otherwise I’d let him play a game or two first…

      Do you see any value in Brandon Lloyd?

    • Shirley 6:43 pm on November 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Flacco and Edwards are still available in my league. I already have Flacco lined up on my waiver list. Should I go with one of the QBs listed above instead? I also have Romo sitting on my team so I pretty much just need a QB for a week or two. I had Orton who was doing splendidly until his injury on Sunday.

      @Michael: Brandon Lloyd makes an worth-while pick up if you have room to spare on your bench. You’re going to want to see what form he is in when he returns to the field before plugging him into your lineup, especially with Rex Grossman at the helm. At best, he’ll become a decent WR3 play towards the end of the season and into the fantasy playoffs.

      @Shirley: Because of the fact that you just need a quarterback for a week or two, I don’t think it makes sense to pick up a “project” like Brady Quinn. However, I’d go for Sage Rosenfels before Joe Flacco or Trent Edwards. Rosenfels picks up a pretty solid passing game and should be the quarterback long enough (Shaub will be out for about a month most likely) to pick up the slack until Romo returns to form.
