First time here, WR help?

Postby Chris Blue » Wed Sep 21, 2011 7:57 pm

Hi, this is my first time on the forum, and it's my first year playing fantasy football.
I didn't do too well in the draft, especially in the role of WR. I've been scrambling the past week and a half to try and get some more valid WRs off waivers, but I still don't have any great names.
I'm wondering who to start this week (Standard scoring, 10 team league)
I've got:
Nate Burleson @ Min
Mohamed Massaquoi v. Mia
Jerome Simpson v. SF
Jacoby Jones @ NO
Percy Harvin v. Det
Jacoby Ford v. NYJ
And I'm hoping to pick up Nate Washington v. Den off waivers on the 24th.

I need to fill 3 WR spots, and I'd prefer to put one in the flex position too this week, seeing as (due to injury) my only other flex option is Carnell Williams.

I'd appreciate any help, and I'll try to help in return, what little I can.

Burleson, Harvin, and Jones are your best WRs there. Massaquoi would be 4th, but I'd rather start Nate Wash over him if you can get him. I take it you weren't able to snag David Nelson? Denarius Moore?

**Correction, I meant to say Simpson here instead of Jones. Read it too fast. Besides, Walter should play this week making Jacoby not was appealing.

Well Chris, if you can get Nate, I would say you go with Nate, Simpson and Burleson. Harvin would be on this list but I don't like the offense in Minny right now. Just wondering, do you have Denarius Moore, Eric Decker, David Nelson or AJ Green on the WW right now? Since you mention you feel you didn't do so well in your draft, let's see the whole roster and see what we can do to make it better.

Thanks to both of you. Sadly someone beat me to Moore, I tried to drop Jacoby Jones for Moore, but someone else had priority and got him first. None of the other WRs that were mentioned are available, except for Kevin Walter; whom I've considered dropping Jones to grab.

As for my full roster:
QB: Freeman
WR: Burleson
WR: Massaquoi
WR: Simpson
RB: Mendenhall
RB: Starks
TE: Gronkowski
WR/RB/TE: Jacoby Jones
K: Crosby
DEF: Philidelphia
BN: Sanchez
BN: Harvin
BN: Carnell Williams
BN: Jacoby Ford
BN: Aaron Hernandez
BN: Donovan McNabb
BN: Heath Miller (He's who I'm dropping to pick up Washington)
BN: Dan Carpenter

Scratch that, I just noticed that David Nelson is available as a Free Agent right now. If I were to grab him, are there any suggestions as to who I should drop, go with one of the injured players, or just McNabb or Carpenter (They're little more than place fillers for me at the moment).
