Back-Up QB: Fitzpatrick or Wilson?

Postby T-Lo » Tue Aug 28, 2012 10:00 pm

First, if you are knowledgeable with IDP & DEF players, please check my other thread here www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/view ... p?t=516761

My main QB is Matthew Stafford (keeper), I couldn't make a live draft so on auto-pick (I didn't care what back-up I got) I received Fitzpatrick. Week 5 is the bye week I will need to use Fitz, and he is up against the 49ers (tough match-up IMO). Wilson is up against the Panthers week 5.

Russell Wilson is looking very promising and still on waivers. I'm tempted to replace Fitz with him now. Make the waiver jump, or see how Wilson performs in the first few games and hope no one else snatches him if he impresses in the regular season?

Who do you feel is the better QB?

Since you have a stud I would take a chance on Wilson, his upside is HUGE!

Obviously, just as a match up play in Week 5 you want to go with Wilson. His up-side is gravy. I haven't seen him play but everyone seems pretty thrilled. Everyone other than Matt Flynn, that is.
I just hope my fantasy team is better than the Chargers this year.

Once I bid on waiver, that is it correct? If I low ball too much and a higher priority comes along and bids, I can't rebid?

I've been in FF a few years now, never messed with waivers too much. The only injuries I've dealt with in my time were McFadden, Gates (x2), then Stafford/Rice in 2010.



Depends on how your league works. Some leagues give waiver priority to teams with the worst record (or least overall points) to best enforce parity. Others use an auction, in which case you are correct. You make a silent bid and when a predetermined period of time passes (could be daily, or every other day, etc.) the player who has bid the most is awarded that player. You can bid $0, and if you are the only bidder, you will get the player.

Hope that answers what you were asking
I just hope my fantasy team is better than the Chargers this year.

Damn, you got that reply in before I could edit it out! Thank you regardless, I can just edit my waiver (even if someone outbids me) any time up until the deadline.
