Cam, Carnell or Meachem?

Postby misterf » Tue Sep 13, 2011 12:24 pm

It's a 10-team, non ppr, standard Yahoo league.

The weekly waivers run tonight for my league, and Cam Newton, Carnell Williams and Robert Meachem are all hot pick-ups and theu are all available.

I think they are all worth picking up....but i can't figure out how to prioritize my waiver claims for these guys. Which leads me to my quation:

[b ]In what order should I rank these guys for my waiver requests[/b]?

Other interesting players that are available in my league are:

wr: A.J. Green
wr: Devry enderson
qb: Chad Henne

I was planning to consider picking up these guys when/if they become free agents, but I am not sure they are worth risking m aiver poriority.....let me know if you think these guys are worth a waiver claim.

Here is my current roster......which might help you out.

qb: Ben Rothlesberger
rb: Jamaal Charles
rb: Frank Gore
wr: Calvin Johnson
wr: Mario Manningham
wr: Dez Bryant
te:Terry Graham
w/r: Knowshown Moreno
k: Josh Brown
def: NY Jets


qb: Joe Flacco
qb: Peyton Manning
rb: Willis Magahee
wr: Piere Garcon
wr: Lance Moore
te: Kellen Winslow

Obviously, Peyton is on the chopping is MaGahee. Garcon and Moore are next in line to get dropped.

I think Meachen is the safest long term bet.......Carnell is the best short-term option (but could loose palying time when Jackson returns)......and while Cam has by far the highest ceiling, he is also by far the most likely to be a total bust the rest of the season. So I am at a total loss re: how to prioritize them......

Well, you don't really need Cam (and I'm not a fan of stashing QBs to deal them as it rarely returns anything close to level of expectation), and your RB depth leaves something to be desired, so I think I'd rank them like this:

1) Caddy
2) Green
3) Meachem
4) Cam

I like Green quite a bit more than Meachem, but both would be nice consolation prizes if you miss on Caddy. Any other RBs out there on your wire?
