    The Wire – Week 2: Thomas Jones or Dexter McCluster? 

    This week I’ve continued to tweak the format of the waiver wire list, so listen closely! 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 really deep leagues) and red is one-hit-wonders.

    Anyways, here’s the waiver wire advice for this week in Google Doc spreadsheet form if that’s the way you prefer to digest it: The Wire: Week 2.

    This week a common question I’m already seeing is who to target now that Jamaal Charles is out for the year: Dexter McCluster or Thomas Jones. It all depends on your league settings, but the most interesting and exciting guy to pick-up will be McCluster. If you’re into boring Shonn Greene-lite stats though, maybe T-Jones is your man…

      1) Should I drop Felix Jones or Reggie Bush for Daniel Thomas?
      2) Should I drop Jermaine Gresham for Scott Chandler?
      3) Should I drop Jacoby Ford for Dexter McCluster or Nate Washington?

      • Brandon 3:22 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        1. No
        2. Sure. They’re both in the same league, but Chandler seems to be Fitzpatrick’s main man in the red zone.
        3. Possibly. I’ve lost faith in Ford at this point (maybe too early, but I can’t spare the bench spot in my leagues) and would replace him with either of those guys.

          Got it. Brandon, please rank the following FA WRs:
          – Dexter McCluster
          – Eric Decker
          – Nate Washington

          Thanks! (this is my existing order)

          • Brandon 10:18 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            I might switch Decker and McCluster, but otherwise it looks good.

            • e-roc 1:09 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink

              I ended up with Run DMC-KC b/c I was lower on the Waiver Wire totem pole.

              I also decided to stick with Gresham for better or worse since I do have Jimmy Graham as well.

        SO- team BLITZED it this week. Gronkowski will not be leaving my flex spot for a while I think!

        I may need to punish myself for not picking up Foster’s handcuff so…

        With Hillis/Foster/Stewart and 2RBs to play each week

        do I..

        a) Try trade for Tate with a WR (current corps are VJax, Colston, Bryant, Henderson, Nelson)- if so who do I try to pitch with?

        b) Stick with Foster, have J Stew as my back up and peruse the waiver wire throughout the season. Ryan Grant will make for an open spot on my Bench…. he adds zero value anymore.


        • Brandon 10:20 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Can you get Willis McGahee? I wouldn’t try to trade for Tate at this point, as his owner will try to rip you off big time. I wouldn’t trade too much of your receiver depth either as you don’t have that much to begin with with Colston out. Keep Gronk in your flex spot, that’s for sure!

          • Mal 4:42 am on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            I have a whole bench of WRs now bar J Stew! Dumped Ryan Grant and Devone Bess for McCluster and Demarius Moore. It doesn’t do THAT much really. McCluster is a great flex play but with Gronk there hmmm! Willis is out of reach as his owner has Knowshon.

            I think Cam Newton is great trade bait right now (or a good QB play should you not be lucky enough to snare Tom Brady like myself!)

            With Gronk in the flex

            WR#1 VJax
            WR#2 Henderson/Bryant/McCluster(he is a WR on nfl.com unfort)??

            Moore will be on Revis Island no? and there are too many mouths to feed in greenbay for Nelson to ever be a viable starter. Performing too well to drop for now.

            • Brandon 12:01 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink

              Yeah Jordy Nelson’s one catch last week was VERY lucky. Buffalo receiver David Nelson could end up being the most valuable Nelson when the season is said and done, as he already has twice as many receptions and is obviously one of Fitzpatrick’s favorite targets.

              You have Cam Newton AND Tom Brady? Definitely trade Newton if you can get good value for him.

          I was just making a general comment that he is great trade bait even if you’re set at QB. Unfortunately the person that played Eli Manning (and lost by 0.7) picked up Newton… good on him though! Eli is TERRIBLE!

      My team took a hit..rbs are hurting. I am wanting to trade and wanting to use Holmes and Hernandez as bait. I have good wr and J. Graham is my other TE. I am open to other offers..depending. What do you think??
      My Team:
      Big Ben/Kolb
      (Charles), F.Jones, Hightower and B.Jacobs
      Hernandez, J.Graham
      New England

      • Brandon 3:23 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I responded to this via e-mail I believe. The main idea was to maybe trade Graham instead of Hernandez and package him with Holmes for a solid RB upgrade…then supplement the TE position with a healthy guy until Hernandez returns.

      hey guys, first time visitor here and had a question that I was hoping to get some feed back on …

      now that Jamal Charles is out for the season I have the opportunity to either pick up T.Jones or McCluster … I was thinking of dropping pierre thomas, mark ingram (didn’t realize I drafted two saints players ugh!) or braylon edwards … I was curious if anyone would make a move with the options I have, and if so who would you drop and pick up? thanks guys (a lot of my friends are saying don’t move anyone but I don’t like having two saints rb’s on my bench)

      • Brandon 10:30 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hmm, I almost like Thomas and Ingram more than both Jones and McCluster, although it’s close between Thomas and McCluster. If you have decent WR depth, ditch Edwards. He seems to be doing absolutely nothing in San Francisco and is hurt not as well. Maybe you can just trade Pierre Thomas for a different mediocre running back or something? Can you get Willis McGahee?

    • MR 5:44 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Quick question… receivers- Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Smith (Car), Kenny Britt, Dez Bryant, Lance Moore……
      RB’s- Ray Rice, Ahmad Bradshaw, Ryan Mathews and Michael Bush….. I was thinking of dropping Michael Bush to pick up Denarius Moore… i know i don’t really need more WR’s but it may payoff for trades in the future and it looks like he will be getting a lot more touches. Should I just stick with what I got?? What do you think??

      Thanks a lot!!

      • Brandon 10:34 pm on September 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’d stick with what you have. Who knows if Moore is not just a one week wonder. When Lance Moore and Dez Bryant are back to their normal selves, you have plenty of depth at the position.

        • MR 12:41 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Cool thanks! …….Another question real quick, My QB’s are Matt Schaub and Mark Sanchez.. I was thinking of offering a trade for Rivers who is sittin on the bench of another guys team who is also real thin at wide receivers. So you think I should try to upgrade at QB and if so who do you think I should offer from my current list from above? Thanks a lot for your input! Appreciate it!

          • Brandon 1:57 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Maybe you could package Schaub and Dez Bryant for Rivers, but you’ll probably have to wait until Bryant is healthy and has a good game for that. I wouldn’t be in a rush to get rid of your top three guys, since they’re an awesome group to have.

    • Matt 12:16 am on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      For Week 3:
      Which 3 WR would you start out of Kenny Britt, Santana Moss, Jordy Nelson, Deion Branch, & Plaxico Burress.
      And who would you start as your TE, Fred Davis or Scott Chandler? RB’s Mike Tolbert, Ahmad Bradshaw, & Fred Jackson.
      I really appreciate this help. You’ve helped me win 2-0 match-up so far.
      Thanks a lot!

        Nice, glad I could help someone! Check back in a day or so and I’ll get those guys on my player rankings for the week.

    • jm 10:20 am on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Drop D. Henderson and pick up David Nelson??

      • Brandon 12:02 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Nelson will be more consistent, but Henderson is the home run hitter. Depends on what you want I guess. I kind of prefer Henderson if you can deal with his low scoring weeks here and there.

    • jm 10:24 am on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Or drop henderson for burleson?? Going forward I think either Nelson or Burleson have more upside..what do you think Brandon??

      • Brandon 12:04 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        They’re all really close. Henderson has highest upside, but is the most inconsistent. Burleson is consistent but won’t score all that much. Nelson could get less yards, but will score more than Burleson. Is it a PPR league? Receiving TDs worth 6? Are you a gambling man? 🙂

        • Wolf 12:54 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I am in the same position. I own Nelson and Henderson and I’m trying to think of which one to play. Henderson vs Houston means another decent game with high points, but Nelson vs NE could be a home run (I am starting Fitzpatrick vs NE for sure)

        • jm 3:14 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          TDs are worth 6. Non PPR league–1 bonus point for each 20 yds, 3 bonus pts for 100 yds, and so on. I’m a competitive WOman, with unfortunate RBs and I will gamble. Tough week with JC out, F. Jones and Henandez hurt and Big Ben taking big hits. That O-line is pathetic. Hightower becoming a ?? in a Shanny offense and I opted for McGahee over the Chiefs backfield and drama..drama.. Anyway, speaking of gambles, Kolb over Big Ben this weekend??

      **** Current starters ****
      Josh Freeman, QB
      Maurice Jones-Drew, RB
      Fred Jackson, RB
      DeAngelo Williams, RB
      A.J. Green, WR
      Eric Decker, WR
      Jason Witten, TE

      Chargers, D/ST
      Josh Brown, K

      ***** Bench *****
      LeSean McCoy, RB
      Brandon Lloyd, WR
      Pierre Thomas, RB
      Brandon Jacobs, RB
      Willis McGahee, RB
      Thomas Jones, RB
      Jacoby Ford, WR

      Friend wants to trade Matthew Stafford for LeSean McCoy, but I’m thinking that’s a bad idea.

      He wants a RB so he said he’d consider other RB – QB trades.

      His QBs:
      Matthew Stafford (his current starter)
      Ben Roethlisberger
      Sam Bradford

      ESPN says McCoy is injured, but he’s been doing well. Should I leave him on the bench?

      • Brandon 12:12 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Get McCoy in your lineup over DeAngelo Williams ASAP! Don’t trade him for Stafford either unless you do some other deal that can upgrade your WR’s. Maybe Stafford and a good WR for McCoy and someone else (Jacoby Ford?) That way you upgrade at QB and WR and he gets his solid RB.

      What do you think is Fair Trade Value on Brady right now?

      • Brandon 12:07 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        hah, he’s worth a lot right now, but not sure I can answer based on your options there. depends on the players involved and what you need. Who’s your backup QB that you could trade Brady?

        • Shane 12:59 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I’m looking to snag Brady, but not for too high a price
          My Lineup:
          QB: Matthew Stafford
          WRs: Vincent Jackson, Calvin Johnson, Steve Smith (Car), Devery Henderson
          Rbs: Ray Rice, Frank Gore, James Starks, Shonn Greene, Ben Tate, Mark Ingram
          TEs: Rob Gronkowski, Jermicheal Finley
          DEF: PIT

          Any package you would put together to get him? is it even worth pursuing based on how Stafford is playing?

          • Brandon 1:59 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Wow, nice team there. Do you really need/want Brady? Stafford has been great. I guess you could package Stafford and one of your receivers for Brady, but I don’t see that being a great move.

            • Shane 2:39 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink

              Thanks, I just have a hard time sitting on a good team

      • Brandon 12:23 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        How about Hakeem Nicks and Devery Henderson? Are you starting two players from the same team?

      • Brandon 2:01 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        There is talk that Manningham got a minor concussion in the last game, so who knows what his status for this week will be. Nicks survived and should be good to go this week (he’s the better receiver to begin with.) As for Henderson and Meachem, for some reason I just like Henderson better, maybe because he always has the potential for an 80 yard TD or something.

      I have Rivers and Newton. I can trade Rivers for Jennings. My receivers are Bryant, Manningham, Amendola, Burleson and Mccluster. I need depth. Can i trade away Rivers for Jennings and have Newton fill his shoes. looks like i might get grossman as well…and have to part with burleson. thoughts?

      • Brandon 2:04 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Are you really in love with Newton enough to give up Philip Rivers, who is a proven commodity? What if you trade Newton for Jennings? I don’t see Newton throwing for 400 yards every week, but who knows. I just feel that Rivers is a top of the line starter and someone you should hang onto, while Newton could be someone that hits some growing pains sooner than later. Grossman as your backup isn’t terrible, but I’d probably drop Amendola, not Burleson.

        • SCOTTIE G 2:33 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I have:
          Danny Amendola, Dez Bryant, Matt Bryant, Nate Burleson, Montario Hardesty, Felix Jones, Mario Manningham, Dexter McCluster, Willis McGahee, Cam Newton, Packers , Adrian Peterson, Philip Rivers, Ben Tate, Jason Witten

          he has:
          Jahvid Best, Sam Bradford, Reggie Bush, Delone Carter, Cowboys , Jimmy Graham, Rex Grossman, Aaron Hernandez, Tim Hightower, Greg Jennings, Maurice Jones-Drew, Matt Prater, Steve Smith, James Starks, Mike Wallace

          I want to get a #1WR and will package anything to make it work…maybe pick up best and jennings or something with mcgahee and rivers.

          thoughts? recommendations?

          thanks Brandon!

          • Brandon 2:47 pm on September 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Yeah Best and Jennings for McGahee and Rivers wouldn’t be too bad of a deal. You really have faith in Cam Newton, huh? He’s going to want some receivers in exchange though, plus you’ll want a backup quarterback. Maybe something like this:

            Rivers/McGahee/Manningham for Bradford/Best/Jennings

      I am in a 12-team league. My draft did not go so well (had to autodraft). I’m currently 0-2 and I am really hoping to change that this week.

      Jay Cutler, QB
      Tarvaris Jackson, QB
      Hakeem Nicks, WR
      Eric Decker, WR
      LeSean McCoy, RB
      Arian Foster, RB
      Jermichael Finley, TE
      Jordy Nelson, WR (W/T flex)
      Mason Crosby, K
      Detroit, DEF

      Mario Manningham, Beanie Wells, Visathe Shiancoe, Nate Burleson, Jon Kitna, New Orleans (def).

      This is my rookie year, and it being a 12 man league, things are spread pretty thin already.

      Do I need to trade for a better QB? If so, what would an “attractive” trade look like? Being a rookie, I am still pretty iffy on how to put together a good trade. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

      • Brandon 8:18 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Do you start two quarterbacks? Are there any other QBs on free agency? Tarvaris Jackson is one of the worst QBs going right now. I’m in a couple 12 team leagues and there are still fairly decent backups available: Matt Hasselbeck, Chad Henne (inconsistent), Colt McCoy, etc.

        The Arian Foster pick is what hurt you, since the rest of your team is halfway decent. I assume there are better backup TE’s available too, since Visanthe Shiancoe is pretty lousy.

        • Neil 8:37 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Gotta have 2 starting QBs, and no, there are absolutely NO free agent QBs left. Same with the TE situation.

        I wouldn’t trade all that for Tom Brady. You have one of the top 5 QBs in the league already. If you were going to upgrade any position, I’d try to get a better RB2 or WR3. Don’t give that much up for Brady.

    Late round flyers 

    Just mentioned it in a tweet, but here are a couple names to consider towards the end of the draft when it seems everyone is doing their own thing and there isn’t as much competition for players:

    QB Sam Bradford – not getting as much love as I would expect at this point, could end up with numbers similar to guys going five rounds or so ahead of him
    RB Thomas Jones – solid backup numbers, doesn’t get hurt very often and is one injury from starting
    WR Nate Burleson – if Stafford improves, Burleson will be benefactor
    TE Aaron Hernandez – almost feel confident using him as his your starting TE, but you can snag him late as a great backup
    WR Jacoby Ford – should be top receiving option on Raiders, but kickoff rule change hurts his value in return yard leagues
    WR Steve Smith (both of them) – just seem to be available deep in the draft where their upside is worth the low risk
    DEF Detroit – maybe I’m giving them too much credit based on their dominance of the Patriots in preseason game, but they should get plenty of sacks and pressure on QB, which could mean interceptions and fumbles too

    • Brandon 10:24 am on August 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Brandon Gibson was on the list previously, but he’s been hurt recently and I’m not sure what is going on with the Rams receiving corps at this point!

    Why would the Jets let a fairly-productive Thomas Jones go and then sign LT? Tomlinson has mentioned publicly that he’s OK with being a third-down specialist…something the Jets already have with Leon Washington! Am I missing something here? Thomas Jones could have split carries with a potentially fragile Shonn Greene, while Leon Washington handled third down duties. If they get LT now, they get an aging running back who will split carries with Leon Washington on third down? Please explain.

    P.S. Hello, Patriots? Instead of just watching a bunch of your guys leave in free agency, how about you make some moves to help a team with some serious holes at this point?!

      So I was able to land myself in 3rd place in a 10 team league so I am in the playoffs, but without a bye this week. My RB position is seriously sad and getting worse each week it seems, so I need some help.
      My roster right now looks like this

      QB Romo, Orton
      WR Colston, Smith(nyg), Meacham, Collie, Avery, Bess Floyd
      RB R. Williams, Forte, Ganther
      DEF Jets

      I am thinking Romo at QB…Colston, Smith, and Meacham for WRs and maybe Williams and Ganther for my 2 RBs…I need a flex play…last wk I played Avery over Bess which wasn’t so great, but who could predict that. I am thinking Avery again this week. Please let me know what you think of my lineup and who I should switch out if any!! Thx for all your help!!!

        At receiver, that’s a pretty tough decision, but I guess I’d bench Brandon Marshall against a solid Colts defense. In terms of your running backs, Correll Buckhalter and Jonathan Stewart are probably your best bets. Just hope that Stewart gets a touchdown and Buckhalter can take a few screen passes for solid yardage.

      yo B…my RB sitch is a mess…started Mendenhall – lost Portis, Westbrook AND now Slaton…so I need to choose 2 + a pick a flex (I may use a WR for flex but not sure) from this mess…Moats, Buckholter, Snelling, Felix Jones, Cartwright, Lynch & Fargas. Last week I used Correl vs KC and he cam up big – Lynch has same matchup and similar situation…Thanks for your help

        Wowsers that is a motley crew you have there. Depending on your receivers, you probably want one of them in the flex spot. If they’re not any good though, your top three running backs this week are probably Fargas, Buckhalter and Felix Jones (high risk, high reward.)

      I have Reggie Wayne, Vincent Jackson and Randy Moss for my WR. (4 team league)

      I’m considering benching Wayne and Jackson for Sidney Rice and Robert Meachem. Any thoughts on this decision?

      • Brandon 6:21 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Tough one there, as all of them are pretty solid options. It’s hard to bench Meachem while he’s so hot right now, so I’d probably plug him in for Vincent Jackson. As for Moss and Wayne, I think you have to keep them in over Sidney Rice just because of their potential.

      It’s fairly clear that you don’t know what you’re talkin’ about.

        An excellent, well-reasoned argument.

    Tonight's Game: New York Jets @ Toronto Bills 

    Don’t even get me started on the Toronto thing. NFL.com’s Nick Bakay sums up the situation pretty succinctly:

    If you have any illusions that this counts as a home game, peep the Jets tilt this Thursday on NFL Network, and count the Bills jerseys in the stands. Last year against Miami, it took CBS three quarters to find one, but there were thousands of Dolphins threads.

    So just in case your start/sit decision on a Buffalo player hinges on the fact that this is a “home” game – think again.

    Anyway, since many folks have to make roster decisions today, let’s do a quick start-or-sit for tonight’s players: (More …)

      Thursday night football this year has been terrible. Including Thanksgiving, the following teams have played: San Francisco, Chicago, Carolina, Miami, Oakland, Dallas, Detroit, Green Bay, Denver, New York Giants, and now the Jets and Bills. Next week is Pittsburgh and Cleveland…ugh. It’s not until week 15 that we get a match-up that is half-way interesting (Indy vs Jacksonville) and even then, the Colts will probably be resting Peyton Manning. Awesome!

        I think the Miami – Carolina game was good considering the two teams story lines going in. And for AFC East fans tonights game was an important one.

        Hasn’t been MNF caliber though.

        If Manning rests, it might make the Indy Jag game more interesting lol. The Jags have been awfully inconsistent this season. If Mannings in, it could be a pretty lopsided and boring game.

      Well, this went more or less as I expected.

      Since my cable provider doesn’t include the NFL Network, I’m glad that I’m not missing anything… I’m secretly hoping the NFL Network fails so they’ll bring these games back to the masses.

      • Matt 10:12 am on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not secretly hoping for the NFL Network’s demise – I hope the thing crashes and burns, and everyone involved gets fired.

          LOL… an Enron-style implosion would be fantastic.

          Sounds good to me, just as long as I get more games. Though not much interesting has taken place on Thursdays so far this year…
