Use #1 waiver priority on Foles this week?

Postby Southie777 » Mon Nov 12, 2012 2:30 pm

My co-gm and I have been waiting on using the #1 waiver priority for a few weeks now, trying to wait for a true impact pick-up. My question - is that guy Nick Foles? It is a 2-QB league, so any time a new starting QB steps in, it warrants attention. He's got a pretty nice schedule down the stretch, too. Our current QB's are Schaub, Palmer, and Tannehill. Do you think he holds on to the job and do you think he is effective? I know he didn't look great last night, but he was facing a good pass D and was forced into action without a week of practice under his belt. What do you think? (WHIR.)

I wouldn't bother. I like your current guys better.
Hold that #1 card.

We're talking about a guy who get 1 start, possibly 2 starts before Vick gets back on the field. Definitely not worth burning a #1 waiver wire pick. If he clears waivers, then by all means, go ahead and pick him up as a speculative stash. But I'm guessing that because he's a big, immobile, and inexperienced QB, he's going to A) hand the ball off to McCoy and B) see a ton of blitzes on passing downs.

Andy Reid's job is on the line. It's highly doubtful that's he's going to try to salvage the season by relying on a rookie QB.

I would wait on using that #1 waiver for a temp player. You have decent QB depth now. I would look to work out a QB trade first before burning that waiver claim.
