From 5-0 to Big Trouble, Waiver Advice for Injured Starters

Postby tapionminoshi » Mon Oct 17, 2011 10:21 pm

I'm about to be 5-1 after starting 5-0, and it looks like I'm in some trouble for the next few weeks. Now, with two of my starting RBs out for several weeks, and byes looming for Shonn Greene, Greg Jennings, and Plax on week 8, I need to find some fill-ins off the waiver wire.

Here's my roster, followed by the available players on waiver in my league. I'm hoping to get DeMarco Murray to fill in for Felix Jones, and/or Maurice Morris in hopes that Best misses some games and I can snag a starter. Addai is also available. I'd be targeting them in that order, and looking to drop Rice or Baldwin, which I could use some opinions on which to drop as well (i'm not dropping the 49ers defense, our league has a TON of bonus points for defenses, so having two solid D's to use as matchups dictate is smart).


QB Michael Vick, Phi QB
RB Steven Jackson, StL RB
RB Shonn Greene, NYJ RB Bye Week 8
Flex Brandon Marshall, Mia WR
WR Calvin Johnson, Det WR
WR Greg Jennings, GB WR
TE Jimmy Graham, NO TE
D/ST Lions D/ST D/ST
K Jason Hanson, Det K

BENCH
Felix Jones, Dal RB *INJURED*
LeGarrette Blount, TB RB *INJURED*
Plaxico Burress, NYJ WR Bye Week 8
Tim Tebow, Den QB
49ers D/ST D/ST

Sidney Rice, Sea WR

Donald Brown, Ind RB

Early Doucet, Ari WR
Steve Breaston, KC WR
Preston Parker, TB WR
Danario Alexander, StL WR
Greg Salas, StL WR

The only player I really like out of that group is Murray.

Breaston out of the WR's, but I like Murray's potential as a starter the next few weeks.

Ouch. I would probably snag Murray for Burress.
