As a fellow owner who needs WR, I can be with you in this situation. I picked up Ogletree (dropped my 6th RB in Felix Jones) and am in the process of acquiring Hill. I would go Hill>Ogletree if faced with that option.

Why?

Sanchez is in desperate need of a good WR, while Romo has Miles/Dez/Witten as big targets. I think Hill has more upside. Ogletree, while I am high on him, to me represents the "one week wonder" a bit more.

Take all this with a grain of salt as I am no diehard football guy. I'm a recent fan, converted through fantasy football.

That's tough. It's hard to say. Ogletree has a better QB (assuming Sanchez comes back to earth), and the only guys with more receptions after week 1 are Reggie Wayne, Brandon Marshall, and Randall Cobb. Hill got his points on TDs, which are flukier, but fewer catches. But if this trend continues I would probably target the guy with more targets, since TDs can be situational.

You never know, I don't think Randall Cobb is going to outpace Greg Jennings on catches for the year, but GB was playing a tougher defense, so Cobb drew the easier coverage. The same may be true in Ogletree's case.

Ogletree is a WR3, the cowboys have shown that a WR 3 can be productive. But Stephen Hill is the WR2 and so is likely to be on the field more often. I am leaning Ogletree because I figure the chances are high that either Miles Austin or Dez Bryant will miss time at some point. But honestly its a tough call.

Most backup running backs are already owned in my league so not sure if I should save the waiver wire for anyone...

If i waste it on one of these guys i know someone like a ryan grant will come along though and ill be disappointed i used it

might just settle for someone who wasnt picked up like donnie avery
