Waiver wire RB's

Postby etex211 » Sat Nov 17, 2012 10:03 am

In our league, we only have two windows during the season to alter our rosters. There is a supplemental draft after week 5, and another supplemental draft after week 11. In next week's supplemental draft, we will pay $2 per pick.

Also, our league rewards scoring plays only. Touches and yards don't matter.

We have 5 running backs on our rosters, and we start 3 each week. Injuries, suspensions, and inconsistent playing time have killed me this year. Here are the five guys on my roster:

MJD
Jamaal Charles
Ryan Mathews
Donald Brown
Brandon Bolden

One of my top priorities in next week's supplemental draft will be to replace Bolden. Here are some of the guys available:

Chris Ivory
Rashad Jennings
Isaac Redman
Marcel Reece
Shane Vereen
Jonathan Dwyer
Beanie Wells
Cedric Benson

Right now, I am leaning toward targeting Ivory. I am open to suggestions. Remember, touchdowns are all that matter.

Thanks. WHIR, please leave a link.

Wow, this is quite the unique league! Interesting stuff.

According to Pro Football Focus, these are the projected TD's for your squad and the targets you listed. The first number is projected rushing TD's, the second is projected receiving TD's; the third is the total TD's projected:

MJD: 2 + 0 = 2
Charles: 3 + 0 = 3
Matthews: 3 + 1 = 4
Brown: 2 + 0 = 2
Bolden: 0 + 0 = 0

Ivory: 2 + 0 = 2
Jennings: 1 + 0 = 1
Redman: 1 + 0 = 1
Reece: 0 + 1 = 1
Vereen: 3 (surprising!) + 0 = 3
Wells: 3 + 0 = 3
Benson: 0 + 0 = 0

In your league, the top 5 runners, as projected by Pro Football Focus, between your squad and the free agents are:

Ryan Matthews (4)
Jamaal Charles (3)
Beanie Wells (3)
Shane Vereen (3)
Donald Brown (2) (I project him over MJD because of the unknown nature of Jones-Drew's comeback; and I rank him above Ivory because he's already on your squad and he's the main running back in IND, as opposed to the committee situation in NO currently)

Good luck!

That's good info. Thanks a bunch.

I may be making a similar post regarding pass catchers (WR+TE). If you happen to see it and have the time to do the same kind of analysis, that would be awesome.

Thanks again.

BTW, this is a very old school league that's been around a long time. This is my first year in it. I didn't realize it was a money league until I was already at the draft, lol.

After the first five weeks this season, I was 4-1 and led the league in points. Now I am 5-5 and sitting 8th in points. It's a 12 team league.

Our WR's and TE's are all lumped together. We have six on our rosters and start four each week. The scoring is the same as the runners. We get scoring plays only.

Currently, I have:

Marques Colston
Dwayne Bowe
Darrius Heyward-Bey
Heath Miller
Kyle Rudolph
Jason Witten


Here are some guys available:

MIke Williams
Sidney Rice
Titus Young
Kenny Britt
Brandon Pettigrew
Santana Moss
Scott Chandler
Greg Olsen
Randy Moss
Brandon Stokley
Jacoby Jones


I am thinking that Williams and Rice would outproduce just about any of my guys except Colston. Witten has been my least productive. He gets lots of catches and yards, but not scores.

Thanks again!

Projected TD's Weeks 11-17:

Your Team
Colston: 5
Miller: 3
Rudolph: 3
Witten: 2
DHB: 2
Bowe: 2

Available guys
Williams: 4
Britt: 2
Rice: 3
Titus: 3
S Moss: 2
R Moss: 2
Stokley: 2
Jacoby: 1
Pettigrew: 2
Chandler: 3
Olsen: 2

So,it seems keeping Colston and Miller is a good idea, while picking up Williams, Titus, and Rice sounds solid.

Again, these are all just projections. Good luck!
