I've always been the guy in the league who adds and drops every week. Last year, I had 30+ moves. Our league rules used to be, drop a guy and he's on waivers for 3 days, all free agents were first come first serve. So, on sunday, as soon as Jamaal Charles posted 150 yds, he was gone in hours. This year, we have ALL FA's go on waivers Sunday through Tuesday. Which, makes more sense, and is more fair to those without endless hours of free time.
So, here's my question. As Draft POS #10, I have waiver priority of 2 (team 12 made a move). I "KNOW" someone is going to show up in the first four weeks. CJ could go down, Brady has to find a reliable #2, Orton has to find a reliable #1, SEA has a WR mess accumulating, JAC is up for grabs (although not many yds to go around for WRs), etc., etc...
So, my question is, "when to pounce". This waiver priority meaning something is new to me. Those of you who have experience with it. Does Week 1 mean much? should I wait until Week 3 to pounce? Remember, what I'm used to: you pounce every time a guy 'might' show signs, I'm not used to this priority meaning something.
So, say Rob Gronkowski has 180 yds and 2 tds in Week 1, do I "pounce" or wait for "Mike Thomas" to show three 70+ yd games in a row?
I know it's impossible to know, just curious from your experience with high waiver priority what level of "PATIENCE" you've been able to practice in previous years. Do you have a philosophy of ignore the "first two weeks", etc... that's really what I'm getting at.
