Matt Forte Injury...who to pickup #1WW

Postby con-vicks » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:54 am

Hey guys, so ive been reading about the injury and right now seems like a high ankle sprain (3-6 weeks recovery)

Here is my team:

Starters: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF

QBs - Matt Ryan/Joe Flacco
RBs - Darren McFadden, Matt Forte, McGahee, Donald Brown
WRs - G. Jennings, Percy Harvin, Victor Cruz, Donald Jones, Brandon Lafell
TEs - Antonio Gates, Coby Fleener

Should i pick any of these possible waivers or start looking for trades? Trades will be difficult as most owners are either happy with team or still not sure what they actually have with each of their players. Maybe stay put and hope for one of my backups can hold me for a few weeks? I was hoping to be able to keep my #1 ww for a while since it does not reset but Forte's injury might prevent that...

Waiver possibilities:

Cendric Benson (awful week 1, okay game against Bears 15 points), Pierre Thomas, Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman (all had awful week 1), Daniel Thomas.

I would actually stay put... with your other backs you can wait for a likely return timetable of 4 weeks.

If not you will have to drop a WR and you need to start 3 each week

I feel it's even either way. If you were to pick up one of those waiver wires, let's say Benson or Thomas, as Mendenhall is fully participating in practice again and that will cut into both Redman and Dwyer's touches, it'd be a pretty even drop and pick up if you were to let Donald Jones go, and even potentially LaFell. I don't think you'll lose to much in either department week-to-week until Forte is back. I'll take Benson 15 points which will become more for sure week-to-week as he gets the feel of GB's scheme, over Jones' or LaFell's predictable possible, maybe 7-10 points.

Its a PPR league, so the receivers can score pretty high...Lafell and Jones have a lot to prove still but have potential. The real question is would you give up your #1 WW for benson or just stay put and wait for the big surprise later during the year? Thats what i planned on doing but right now im not sure.
