Pick up Beanie Wells off Waivers (Sept 11 W)

Postby HotHandz305 » Fri Sep 09, 2011 3:31 pm

So last night after the game I had Ryan Grant on my bench and was unimpressed and more impressed by James Starks so I dropped Grant and Picked up Starks off FA quickly.

I noticed though before the game someone had dropped Beanie Wells to pick up a kicker since they had none. My question is looking at my roster is it essentially worth Dropped James Starks, Kenny Britt, Jahvid Best, or Tim Hightower to pick up Wells thru the Waiver Wire.

My RB1 is Arian Foster and my RB2 Is LeSean McCoy and my Flex (RB/WR/TE) is Tim Hightower atm. Just for reference my WR1 is Greg Jennings and WR2 is Vincent Jackson.


EDIT: As a side note I am curious to know it is worth using my WW position to pick up wells and if so which player to drop, if not is it worth to drop a player and pick up Wells from FA. My waiver wire position is #7 so nothing great so if I lose that spot won't really hurt. Chances are it looks like 1 other person wants him who is WW #9 and I think he will pick him up off WW so not a good chance Wells goes to FA. Also realistically I dont even know if B Wells is better than my worst RB/WR.

Starks did look good last night but Beanie is the overwhelming starter in Arizona and isn't in a RBBC. I would drop Starks for him, I'm sure someone will pick Starks up but you want the best players on your bench.

what is this an 8 team league?

How is a full time RB like Wells on the WW? Even is Starks takes over, it's still going to be a timeshare between him and Grant with only slight favor towards Starks.

Wells will get the majority of the carries in AZ. Drop Starks and take Wells.





help with mine?

10 Team league, the player who dropped him never drafted a kicker so I guess he found him to be his least valuable player.

Do you all believe I should put a claim on waiver wire for him or just pray he goes to FA?

if it were me I wouldn't risk it. especially since you're in WW position 7 of 10 anyways.

snatch him up before someone else does

I would drop Britt before I dropped Starks, and I think Beanie is worth it for either.
