So, unless Andre Johnson is able to play, I'm short a WR next week, with all of my other ones on byes. And it blows. No idea who to drop. If the waiver wires were at all populated by talented players I'd feel less bad, but they're really cleaned out. So, basically, who would you drop from my team to play at WR for one week and then drop immediately after so I can pick up a defense to start next with with my 9ers on bye?
12 team, standard scoring, no-ppr.
The lineup for next week, considering the byes. QB: Cam Newton RB: MJD RB: Shonn Greene WR: Steve Smith WR: ?? WR/RB: Cedric Benson TE: Jermichael Finley K: Matt Bryant D/ST: 49ers Bench: Eli Andre Johnson (hurt) Vincent Jackson (bye) Antonio Gates (bye) Beanie Wells (bye) Nate Washington (bye)
On draft day, I never expected to get have Gates (I took Finley), but some dude dropped him for the same reason as I might, it looks like. The choice is essentially Nate Washington or Gates and I dunno.
Some of the WRs on the wire: Austin Collie Lance Moore Jerome Simpson Braylon/Crabtree Steve Breaston Emanuel Sanders/Antonio Brown Jacoby Ford
I would drop Washington, if and when Gates is healthy he will back to his old form he will be a top TE. As far as im concerned the guy can catch TDs in a wheelchair. You have solid WRs in Johnson, VJax and Smith so once bye weeks are done (AJ will be back in a few weeks) you'll be set. I like Gates Upside more than Washingtons. Good luck!
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.
12 team big $$$ non PPR league - QB RB RB WR WR TE D K
QB: Rivers RB: Murray, Matthews, R.Bush, D. Brown WR: Julio Jones, Colston, VJax, Garcon TE: Witten, Gresham K: Kaeding DST: SEA
Drop Wasgington, i wouldnt drop Gates. Once Gates does get back you will have two solid te's and be able to trade one of them and AJ should be back within a week or so. Washington will never be more than a bye week fill in that you hope has a decent game. Good luck.
I would drop washington or just bite the bullet and not play anyone this week, unless you are in danger of not making the playoffs already, no way I would drop Gates. Last thing would be to try and make a trade.

Gotta drop Washington... look into picking up Crabtree because Josh Morgan and Edwards are out and Detroit is going to stack the box to stop Gore, leaving Crabtree open quite a bit... just gotta hope A. Smith can get him the ball.
