Right pickup? WHIR

Postby BearsFan65 » Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:19 pm

12 team PPR league, all TD's = 6. Start QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, DST, K. No flex position. My roster:

QB - Stafford
RB - McCoy, Sproles, J Rodgers, M Leshoure
WR - Harvin, Bryant, Wayne, L Moore
TE - F Davis, D Pitta
DST - Arizona (streaming)
K - Hanson

A couple intriguing names on the wire this week:

R Mendenhall - neither Redman nor Dwyer have taken the job in PIT, looking like Mendy is going to get his gig back after the bye
N Burleson - was dropped in a waiver claim last night, but I am last in line

Where RB's are concerned I have two every week must starts in McCoy and Sproles. The objective here is to have RB's on my bench that are most likely to be startable/tradeable by week 6/7/8. I'm thinking:

1. drop Davis for Mendy, then...
2. waive Quizz for Burleson if he falls to me, otherwise hold Quizz

Any reason why I wouldn't do this? I hate dropping the TE I was targeting all along anyway, but it just doesn't seem like RG3 is going to depend on him very much. WHIR, thanks!

I would hold Davis and drop Quizz for Mendy. I wasn't impressed with the Falcons use of the RB at all. It seems like they are totally going away from any productive use of Turner or Quizz.

help on mine?
QB- Roethlisberger, Rivers, Foles
RB- McCoy, Lynch, L James, Ivory, F Jackson, D Thomas, Turbin
WR- Julio, Bowe, D Bryant, D Jax, Amendola, Broyles, Gordon, Hill
TE- Celek, D Allen
DEF- Giants
K- Zuerlin
D- D Washington, S Weatherspoon, L Kuechly

I am not sure I would drop anyone...I think Mendy and all the rest of the Pittsburgh RB's stink and not worth it.

see mine
