Cam / Davis or Nelson -- WHIR -- Major Help Needed

Postby jetsflagboyz » Wed Sep 21, 2011 4:23 pm

My team is horrific. PPR. 1 waiver pickup a week. My flex can be RB, WR, or TE.
I have first pick this week.

Cam Newton / Fred Davis / David Nelson

Who should I pickup? My roster is below.

My thoughts: Cam is a luxury but he is putting up 25+ a game. Fred Davis would be great especially because Pettigrew has been terrible. Let's say Pett comes around, I could flex one and start the other. David Nelson had 13 targets. Braylon had surgey, Crabtree? Mike Williams?

WHIR
PPR - 12 team -- 1 waiver pickup a week

Matt Ryan
C. Johnson / J. Stewart
Jennings / Bowe/ Decker (Flex)
Pettigrew
Feely
PITT
Bench: Fred Davis / TITANS / Cam Newton / Crabtree / B. Jacobs / M. Ingram

Nelson wouldn't start for you over your current starters, at least not yet. You have to take Cam as he's playing lights out and would have huge value for you as a starter (yes, a starter) or in a trade deal. He's the real thing. Hope Davis is still there after you pick up Newton, but Newton won't be there after a round of waivers.

As much as it pains you, you have to pick up Cam. Matty Ice has been giving his owners chills this season (sorry, couldn't help it).

There should still be TE depth for you next week and your QB situation is the most pressing issue.

((and to answer your question - Colston is progressing well and 'ahead of schedule'. Will be back week 6.))

Yeah, Cam is hard to pass up right now. He is putting up points.

I hate it, but true.
12 team, QB,RB,WR,WR,TE,K,DEF.
No PPR. Bonus points for 100 rush/rec and 300 passing.

Have to go Cam Newton. If you can't afford to hold both QBs, either would make great trade bait to upgrade your other skill positions. Every league has a nervous Romo owner wondering what to do this week.

If you love Ryan, use Newton's success to drive a two-for-one bargain that includes a TE upgrade.

I'm hoping to pick up Newton tonight for the sole purpose of driving a favorable upgrade trade. Impossible to know how long the magic will last, but talented defensive coordinators are pouring over tape right now finding his rookie flaws.

Thanks for your help with mine earlier. Best of luck!

I think that Cam Newton has the greater value, but that Fred Davis would help your team out more. I'd still take Matt Ryan over Cam Newton for my QB going forward this season, but I would definitely rather have Fred Davis or Pettigrew at TE.

I agree with the consensus to go with Cam. You can make a move to trade one of your QB's and you'd get something better than Davis or Nelson.
