Lance Moore was dropped though I hear he's practicing and looking good this week so far. After Santonio Holmes, my WRs are shaky: I still love Harvin's talent, but hate his QB; I'm not sure what to expect from Thomas's QB either, and he's on Revis Island this weekend; and Ochostinko speaks for itself. I have #6 waiver priority - thinking it's a good move to take a chance on Moore (assuming my claim is successful). With Foster back and Ward not practicing, it's probably time to cut loose Ward.
This is a 12-team Yahoo redraft. 0.5 PPR scoring. We start: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, R/W, TE, K, DEF. My team:
QB: Brees, Flacco
RB: Foster, SJax, Best, Jacobs, McGahee, Harrison (Best handcuff), Ward (Foster handcuff?)
WR: Holmes, Harvin, Ochocinco, MThomas, Branch
There are some other intriguing WR pickups. Amendola is dropped. Realistically, he probably won't play until after the Rams bye (week 5). But in a competitive 12-team league with deep benchs and rolling Sunday waivers (every Sunday ALL free agents get put on waivers until they clear or are claimed by Wednesday), it's better to move on guys sooner than later. Brandon Gibson is another that I have my eye on. With Amendola out, he could get a lot of balls thrown his way. I'm not sure who a second drop (after Ward) for either of these guys would be. I think I need Harrison. Best is my starter in the R/W flex spot - but he's very brittle, and last Sunday's game did nothing to disprove the idea that Harrison would replace him in case of injury. And then there's the Patriot WRs. Ocho was awful, but isn't it a bit early to completely bail on him (especially in a deeper league)? Branch was my last WR drafted, but he had a good game on Monday - getting all the action I thought Ocho would get. But if Ocho is brought into the offense, you have to figure Branch's fantasy value would suffer the most. I was kind of hedging my bet with having Ocho and Branch on my team (at least for a few weeks).
Let me know ... if the waiver use for a Moore/Ward swap sounds good ... and if you'd drop someone else for another WR (or maybe drop Ward for that WR instead of Moore) ... or if my waiver is denied for Moore, do I drop Ward for either Amendola or Gibson ... or maybe do nothing at all. Right now, I'm leaning towards using the waiver for a Moore/Ward swap. And if that goes through, stand pat for the time being (give at least another week for the Ocho/Branch situation to clarify itself). If it gets denied ... well, being injured himself Ward feels pretty useless. Probably drop him for one of the Ram WRs - not sure which one though.
