Pick up Blackmon with 1st waiver priority? WHIR 100%

Postby donkquixote » Thu Nov 15, 2012 2:36 pm

14 Team PPR league, QB/3 WR/2 RB/1 TE/1 W/T FLEX, 1 W/R FLEX

I have 1st waiver priority, and WR is my biggest need.

Currently have D. Thomas, G. Jones, Shorts, Gibson, Meachem, Hixon.

Someone in the league just dropped Blackmon. I know he's been a bust, but keep in mind that this is a 14 team league with 20 roster spots and there are 5 potential WR starters, so there are hardly ever any good WRs on waivers. All of the "hot pickups" each week are usually already on somebody's roster. The best available otherwise right now are:

Underwood
Binns
Douglas
Hagan
J. Baldwin
Shilens

The question is, should I sit on my #1 waiver priority and wait for a desparate team to make a bad drop later on for someone better than Blackmon?

I'd sit on the #1 waiver after watching last weeks game vs the colts the Jags are just a mess, it seems like blackmon is disinterested at times and just going through to motions i'd wait until someone is better on the waivers or to see if blackmon shows any signs of life.

No way, I'd keep it for now. Blackmon isn't worth the #1 waiver. He looks totally disinterested out there. You're not going to get much out of him.

Nah, i would look to see if nobody picks him up, cause he really isnt too attractive of an option right now. Who knows, the kid is a physical freak, but not a good WR yet

Harry Douglas may be a nice pickup. Julio Jones is a GTD because of a shin injury.

I would hold on to that #1 priority for now and just pick and choose from the pool of players available. Did anyone claim Blackmon?

with henne blackmon looked like he should, solid to great. with gabbert, he hasn't done anything. i guess it depends on the direction jax wants to go with the QB and whether gabbert's injury will keep him out past the playoffs (which it doesn't look like at the moment),.

i'm going for denario alexander then blackmon with my #2 waiver, and dropping rashad jennings or broyle.. i think jennings, he's straight up getting looked over and only used in return duties. parmele ran well, only adding to the doom and gloom for rashad.
