Waiver help? Lost Gronk, need Wk 12 win to make the playoffs

Postby taw856 » Tue Nov 20, 2012 5:17 pm

Please advise as to who you would want that's available on waivers Wk. 12, and who you would drop beyond 1. Gronk and 2. Titus Young.

QB Matt Ryan
RB Ahmad Bradshaw, Donald Brown, (Marcel Reece), (Mark Ingram), (Andre Brown), (Darren McFadden)
WR Brandon Marshall, Michael Crabtree, (Mike Williams), (Dwayne Bowe), (Titus Young)
TE Rob Gronkowski
FLEX (Whoever the best player in parenthesis is above)
DST Patriots, (Chargers)

Colin Kaepernick
Jalen Parmele
Ronnie Hillman
Justin Blackmon
T.Y. Hilton
Danario Alexander
Kendall Wright
Jay Cutler
Sam Bradford
Brandon Pettigrew
Scott Chandler
Jacob Tamme
Benjamin Watson
Bryce Brown
Julian Edelman
Joel Dreesen
Bilal Powell
Dallas Clark
Dennis Pitta
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

It just so happens that some GENIUS wrote a waiver wire article on Fantasy Football Cafe last night, and he really hit the nail on the head. Seriously, though, It discusses why Kaepernick, Myers, Hillman, Hilton, Edelman, and a couple others are smart pick-ups this week. Check it out!

After you check out that GURU's article :-) here are some other thoughts for your situation:

If I was looking for a TE I'd pick up Myers if he's available. If not (can't believe I am going to say this) grab Pettigrew. The guy can barely catch a ball to save his life, but Stafford keeps throwing him the ball and I think he's the best TE out of the guys you have listed. Then it's Pitta right behind, followed closely by Dreesen, then Chandler, then Tamme, then Clark. Your league has quite a few decent TE's available, fortunately for you!

This might sounds crazy, but if I were you this would be my Week 12 lineup:
QB: Matt Ryan is easily a top 5 play against Tampa Bay. Start him.
RB1: Jalen Parmele - is getting his big shot as a bell cow, against TEN (drop Titus)
RB2: Ronnie Hillman - gets his chance vs. KC (drop SD defense - no need for them)
WR1: Brandon Marshall
WR2: Michael Crabtree
Flex: Darren McFadden (looks like he'll back)
TE: Pettigrew (if Myers isn't available)
DST: NE Patriots

good luck! ;-D
