Any of these moves worth a #1 waiver wire move?

Postby garretterik » Tue Sep 13, 2011 1:38 am

I have the #1 waiver wire pick. Are any of these moves worth burning my #1 waiver wire priority? (FYI won week 1 despite having Steve Smith on the bench!) Ringer and Barber are expendable on my bench. Right now I am leaning toward savingt he waiver wire priority for when a stud RB goes down later in the season.
WW: QB - Cam Newton (was week 1 a fluke? I know someone will pick him up in our 12 team league, better option than Eli and Kolb?),
RB - Cadillac (how long will SJax be out?), Derrick Ward, McCluster
WR - Doucet (like him long term), Henderson/Moore (with Colston out who will be #1), Hester, ESanders/ABrown(Pit), Massaquoia(Cle), JJones(Hou), Gaffney/Armstrong(Was)
TE - Chandler(Buf), FDavis(Was), King(Ari), Dickson(Bal), Sheffler(Dal), Gresham(Cin), Watson(Cle), Spaeth(Chi), Shockey(Car)


My team:
QB Kevin Kolb (Ari - QB)
WR Calvin Johnson (Det - WR)
WR Stevie Johnson (Buf - WR)
RB Chris Johnson (Ten - RB)
RB Shonn Greene (NYJ - RB)
TE Antonio Gates (SD - TE)
W/R/T Mark Ingram (NO - RB)
BN Sidney Rice (Sea - WR)
BN Eli Manning (NYG - QB)
BN Steve Smith (Car - WR)
BN LaDainian Tomlinson (NYJ - RB)
BN Marion Barber (Chi - RB)
BN Javon Ringer (Ten - RB)
BN Ricky Williams (Bal - RB)
K Nick Folk (NYJ - K)
DEF Dallas (Dal - DE

I think a few of the players are worth looks, and even adds... But, none of them is worth burning a #1 waiver in my opinion. Cam may be worth grabbing to trade if your league has a premium on QBs, and Doucet may have a breakout year. Beyond that, I couldn't even begin to argue in favor of burning a waiver.

None of those players are worthy of your #1 waiver pick, but I would pick up Fred Davis (probably drop Barber or Ricky Williams). He'd make for a nice insurance/bye week filler for Gates and Davis has TE1 potential in the Redskins offense as of now.
