All right, so one of the guys in my league is straight up stupid, and dropped Beanie Wells, Steve Smith (CAR), Ahmad Bradshaw, Eli Manning, Bernard Scott, Fred Jackson, Golden Tate, and David Akers to the waiver wire this week...I need some advice on what to do with this mess.
I would love to pick up Steve Smith, Ahmad Bradshaw, or Beanie Wells, although I don't know if Beanie Wells is ever going to come back and actually play the way the season is going so far. However, I don't know who to drop, and what order to try and put these guys in at. Help me out?
Here is my team:
QB: Drew Brees RB: Pierre Thomas RB: Arian Foster RB/WR: Darren McFadden WR: Mark Clayton WR: Reggie Wayne TE: Jermichael Finley DEF: Ravens K: Neil Rackers
Ben: Mike Wallace Ben: Eddie Royal Ben: Kevin Walter Ben: Demariyus Thomas Ben: Louis Murphy Ben: Josh Freeman Ben: Cardinals D
(Yes I got lucky on the waiver wire this week, haha) And I know my benched WR are good, I was going to try and get a trade in later this week to pick up a good backup RB, but I think I can probably get one in Wells or Bradshaw. So what's the advice?

I would drop Louis Murphy for Bradshaw, Smith, AND Wells, and in that order. You have no RB depth on the bench, and have quality WR's, so i would even consider dropping Walter for Bradshaw or Smith as well. If you can get Smith, and either of the 2 RB's, you will be laughing.
Thanks for the help on mine. I would get Smith and Bradshaw for sure. I would drop Walters and Murphy.
12 Team League. We start 2 QBs and get .5 PPR, otherwise standard scoring QBs: Stafford, Fitzpatrick, Collins RBs: Charles, Mendenhall, Best, Starks, Carter, Karim WRs: D. Jackson, Marshall, S. Smith, Green, TE: Hernandez, Cook
Current Set-up: Drop Freeman -> Pick up: Wells Drop Freeman -> Pick up: Bradshaw Drop Freeman -> Pick up: S. Smith Drop Cardinals D -> Pick up: Bradshaw Drop Cardinals D -> Pick up: S. Smith Drop Murphy -> Pick up: S. Smith
Brees has BYE in week 10, and Ravens in week 8, so I have time to figure out who the keepers are so I can drop 1 later to pick up a different QB and Def for those weeks.
Should I add Drop Neil Rackers -> Pick up: Akers to the end of that list?
Is the general consensus Bradshaw over Wells? The only reason why I say Wells first is because he is probably the better overall player, and I am set at RB for the next couple weeks. I can do without him for a couple weeks until he's back in the game. Or would everyone take Bradshaw, then Smith, then Wells?
