Waiver WR / RB Help (Nelson, D.Thomas, Amendola) WHIR

Postby Dirty Dlamps » Mon Sep 19, 2011 5:43 pm

Yahoo 10 Team .5 PPR League
1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/R/T
$100 FAAB Budget

Roster
QB: T. Romo, M. Stafford
RB: A. Peterson, M. Forte, F. Jackson, K. Moreno, R. Mathews
WR: L. Fitzgerald, D. Jackson, N. Burleson, S. Rice, D. Bess
TE: A. Hernandez, O. Daniels
1 Open Roster Spot (Just dropped J. Ford)

Waiver Players Available
RB
    Daniel Thomas
    D. McCluster

WR
    N. Washington
    D. Nelson
    D. Moore
    D. Amendola
    E. Decker

Waiver Options
Although I am pretty set at RB I feel D. Thomas is a steal.(If this waiver passes he would fill my 1 empty spot)
I currently have a bid in for D. Thomas for $11.

My main concern is my WR Depth
My primary ideas:

    Picking up D. Nelson dropping D. Bess
    Picking up D. Amendola (waiting for him to return to health) dropping D. Bess or canceling my waiver on D. Thomas

Should I forget about D.Thomas considering my depth at RB and focus on WR?

Thanks for the help! 100% WHIR

Easy pick up Thomas with your open spot.

If you want to pick up another wr, I would drop Hernandez (No point in carrying two tight ends/hernandez is out two weeks) or Rice (I want no part of any player on sea) and pick up Nelson. Moore is a good player (i drafted him in one of my leagues) but that wr core is going to be hit or miss week to week.

I agree Thomas, and if you want Nelson.

I am tempted to say Mcluster with Charles out but would go with Thomas and then Nelson over Moore, thanks for help on mine

In addition Moore will be of no use this week going up against the Jets.

i agree with the consensus here.
definitely grab thomas if you have an empty slot.
i like amendola the most out of this group, but when you start 3 wides and already have rice banged up, i don't think you can afford to add another gimp.

thanks for the help on mine.

Yes get Thomas & Nelson or N. Washington and dump Rice. That would give you 6 RBs Then you could package a RB or 2 for an upgrade at WR. I would still keep an eye on Amedola though. You still may be able to get him once healthy.

Grab Thomas, Drop Rice (2nd straight week with shoulder problems and SEA offense = horrible) and pick up Nelson. Probably in another week or two see what happens with Amendola, my guess he will be out next week may start week 4 and Rams have a bye week 5. Then since you will have so many RBs I would package two of them (one of them probably being either Moreno or Matthews, if possible) and get a good WR back.
