Waiver Wire Help- N. Burleson, M. Floyd, or K. Hunter WHIR

Postby offthebeatnpath » Thu Sep 29, 2011 12:36 pm

We start

QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, RB/WR, TE, K, Def.

N. Burleson, M. Floyd, and Kendall Hunter are all available. Nate has been a surprise this season. Malcolm could put up some good numbers if Gates continues to have his foot issue. And Gore is averaging 2.5 ypc and his mileage seems to be catching up with him. I could see him getting hurt a lot this season. So help. Who's should I pick up?

Roster
QB- Fitz, Freeman
RB- McCoy, CJ2K, Tolbert, J. Best, Helu
WR- R. White, H. Nicks, M. Williams, Nate Washington
TE- J. Finley, A. Hernandez
K- Henery
Def.- Detroit

Hunter has the most upside given that he could eventually end up getting the bulk of the carries in San Francisco. Burleson is probably the safer add. Depends which of those two values you'd prefer in a pickup, but I think I'd advise Hunter.

BOLD PICKS FOR 2013
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

Burleson is the better add but not for your team, as you will never start him with your WRs. I'd grab Kendall Hunter as a speculative add of those 3, but if you have to drop somebody, I wouldn't add anyone.

Well, I guess that's a good point. i was planning on dropping Helu for one of those guys. Or should I just stick with him?

I pretty much agree with this post. Unless you're hoping to grab Burleson as trade fodder to upgrade at RB, I wouldn't really consider it. Hunter has the biggest upside, but it's not a sure thing at all.

Either 1) stand pat; 2) drop Helu for Burleson with the idea of trading Burleson + something for RB?; 3) drop Helu for Hunter and just hope Gore goes out of commission. I'm probably most inclined to just stand pat though.

As of right now Burleson is the better addition, but saying that Titus Young and Pettigrew could be taking away some of his targets. Then I would go Hunter because you could use a little RB depth. But I would hold on to Helu because it is increasingly beginning to look like a time share with Hightower and with Shanahan as the coach you never know what could happen with the RB situation.
