Santonio questionable, need insurance - WHIR

Postby BearsFan65 » Fri Sep 16, 2011 1:32 pm

12 team PPR, start 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex (plus QB, TE, DST, K). My roster:

QB - M Ryan
RB - R Rice, F Jones, B Jacobs, M Bush
WR - M Wallace, S Holmes, K Britt, D Amendola, J Ford
TE - R Gronkowski
DST - Chicago
K - Bironas

Rotoworld says Holmes is questionable, heading for game time decision status, and Jets signed a WR off their practice squad this morning. With Amendola and Ford both not playing (Amendola for sure, Ford likely to be out), I need to pick up a WR in case Holmes can't go (which would suck, because it's a plus matchup against a bad Jags secondary). Two questions:

1. Who's the right drop? I love Ford's upside, and can't let Amendola go in a PPR league. Do I drop M Bush and worry about RB depth later? Or drop Ford and give up that upside?

2. Which WR to add? Available WR's include B Gibson, G Salas, J Gaffney, A Brown, E Sanders, B Hartline, E Decker. I don't much care for the two PIT receivers since I have Wallace already, leaning toward Gibson because I just don't trust a rookie coming out of nowhere to fill Amendola's slot position. Hartline and Decker are interesting, but Gibson seems to be the biggest upside of the bunch.

Thoughts, anyone? WHIR, thanks!

This is a tough one...I would say get rid of Bush right now. He is not going to get the touches with McFadden playing the way he is.

I would pick up either Decker (seems to be a favorite target for Orton late in the game) or Salas would be a good insurance pick up. With Amendola out..he could see his passes.

So I would rate them like this:

Decker
Salas
Hartline

And I would forget about the other WR's

If you could help me with mine too

Amendola is out for quite some time & Ford is dealing with another injury, either are safe drops IMO.

I'd drop either & pick up Gaffney (he & Grossman played together at Florida) and Arizona just got torched by a rookie QB at home.

1. I agree you should drop bush. You have jacobs backing up right now which should suffice.

2. I would grab Gaffney I think. Targeted a lot last week by Grossman and he has a favorable matchup with week vs a weak ARI secondary. If not Gaffney, Id prob grab Gibson since he'll be a #1 wr for Bradford

I would drop Bush and grab either Gibson or Gaffney. If Amendola somehow comes back to play, and does so at a similar level, then Gibson's value will drop off. On the other hand, the circus in Washington has me wondering about the consistency of those targets.

Gaffney's my choice.

I would drop Ford or Bush and p/u Gaffney. Gaffeny has a good match up and the 'Skins will be going after the 'Zona DB's.

I would drop ford rather than bush. Ford may have upside, but you will never start him over your other three unless there are injuries. Rb depth more important.

I like Gibson of the ones you mentioned. I am intrigued by hardline this week, but much prefer Gibson over the long haul.

Good luck

My thoughts exactly. RB depth is always at a premium, so even though DMC is rolling now, Bush still has value. I love Ford's upside, but he is the odd man out here. I'd look at either Gibson or Gaffney
