Workin the WR Waiver Wire - WHIR

Postby runDMC! » Tue Oct 04, 2011 2:58 am

Ok, so bye weeks are coming up pretty soon but I don't have any for my WRs until week 8. I need a solid back up for Holmes (8), Megatron (9), and Wallace (11).

Based on skill, opportunity, and matchups which would be the best WW pick up right now? Pick 2 plz

D. Nelson*
M.Thomas*
P. Garcon
D. Heyward-Bey
B. Edwards (coming back wk 8)
S. Breaston
L. Evans (back wk 6)
D. Williams (good matchups, starting w/Britt out)
K. Walter


I'm also considering dropping Ingram to free up a spot since I already have Greene and Tolbert. Good/bad idea? Maybe do a trade? I'm in a standard NFL scoring league and only have 6 bench spots (Schaub, Greene, Tolbert, Ingram, Nelson, Thomas)

I am a believer in Ingram for the playoffs. He is a rookie splitting time and you know Pierre will get hurt. So, I would try trade. On your list I was very impressed with Garcon last night. He and Painter seem to have a thing. Then DNelson of course with the high powered Buff offense (never thought I would say that!)

Of those I might go with Nelson... Pierre looked good once he had the ball but he got targeted 8 times with 2 catches.... Painter wants to throw him the ball for sure, but can he get it to him? Might be worth to chance it just for a bye week....

Garcon got snatched up, but most of the others are still on waivers. Also for what it's worth, Jacoby Jones is up there along with Malcom Floyd. Amendola was dropped too.. risky play, huh? I don't need him until wk 8 but still too risky?


On the comment about Heyward-bey, wouldn't Jacoby Ford take some targets away?
