5 guys on bye weeks this week. Should I bail on week 6? WHIR

Postby Habslive » Tue Oct 11, 2011 8:16 pm

I've been a victim of bad luck (by far the most points scored against me, 2nd most points scored...2-3 record, 8th place out of 12)

QB: Stafford, Freeman
RB: Foster, Wells (bye week), Lynch (bye week), Helu
WR: Wallace, Fitzgerald (bye week), Denarius Moore, Antonio Brown, Titus Young
TE: Finley, Cook (bye)
DEF: None right now
K: Bills

Rank these waiver claims for me please! All involve dropping Titus Young. As you can see I'm left starting Helu this week if i do nothing. Leaning towards Carter, but I don't know.

1. Jackie Battle- most upside
2. Bills defense
3. Ben Roethlisberger
4. Darrius Heyward-Bey
5. Delone Carter

Thanks and leave link.

You NEED a week 6 RB bad. Delone Carter has to be your #1. After that, Battle (though if he's not your 1st waiver choice, odds are low of getting him). I'd drop Helu to get Battle. I'd rather have Roethlisberger over Freeman - that would be my #3. But again, if he's a FA and coming off a 5 TD game, you'd think someone would use their #1 waiver for him. The defense or DHB is a much lower priority. Though you made a typo with the WW defense - obviously you won't be dropping the Bills to pick up the Bills. The WR value between DMoore, Brown, and DHB all feels about the same to me. Owning 2 Oakland WRs seems a stretch. All those guys just feel like "point chasing" plays to me - capable of a good week or doing nothing, with no way of telling which will happen.

Battle has a bye next week, so definitely pick up Delone Carter. Your second pickup should be Big Ben, then Battle if he's still there.

Dump Cook for Carter since you need a RB for sure.
I'd grab Bills D with the free spot I guess. They have been very consistent.
