Ridley- Waivers WHIR

Postby SF2313 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 12:53 pm

So my team at the moment is in the signature, and here is my bench:

M.Bush OAK (handcuff for McFadden)
R.Matthews SD
J.Starks GB
S.Holmes NYJ
M.Williams TB
B. Pettigrew DET (need because Week 5 Byes)
Giants D/ST (needed because Week 5 Byes)

Are any of these players worth dropping for Ridley?

QB Tom Brady, NE QB
RB LeSean McCoy, Phi RB
RB Darren McFadden, Oak RB
RB/WR Fred Jackson, Buf RB
WR Larry Fitzgerald, Ari WR
WR Vincent Jackson, SD WR
TE Jason Witten, Dal TE
D/ST Ravens, Bal D/ST
K Neil Rackers, Hou K

Bad timing. You won't need a 2nd D after this week so for bye weeks I'd just hold off. I could see you dumping both Ds one for Ridley and the other for best matchup or dumping Balt D for Ridley. They are not THAT dominating.

So what are you suggesting lol? And why would I dump Bal D for Ridley? They are the highest ranked D/ST so far, and scored 32 points last week.

You should drop one of your defenses for Ridley. No need to have 2.

Any other opinion? I've gotten one response I didn't understand and another response which didn't consider bye weeks......

In my opinion I would say Bush, With Run Dmc you really dont need a handcuff at least in my opinion. Plus Bush has injured his ankle, not sure how serious it is, but none the less

I think that I would say to drop Bush, but seeing as you have DMC I would not drop him. I believe that if given the chance as the starter (with DMC out of the way), he has the potential to produce as a borderline top-10 RB. I would stand pat given your situation.

Help out on mine?

I would drop Bush without a second thought if you believe in Ridley.

No need to handcuff anyone in an 8-team league.
Standard Scoring, 8 Team PPR

QB- BREES, Romo
RB- MARTIN, RICE, Sproles, Murray, A.Morris
WR-D.THOMAS, BRYANT, Maclin, S.Smith
TE- GRAHAM, Hernandez
K- TUCKER
DEF- BENGALS, Giants

Mathews for my Ridley/Redman
Rice for my Mathews/Wallace
