Hillman cleared waivers, drop Garcon? (WHIR)

Postby nyr199435 » Wed Nov 21, 2012 12:19 pm

This is for Team 1 at the bottom. (0.5 PPR)

I was able to add Blackmon and Edelman thankfully. But some interesting names cleared waivers, and I'm wondering if it's worth grabbing any of them:
-Ronnie Hillman
-Jake Locker (2 QB format)
-Sam Bradford (see above)
-Alex Smith
-Christian Ponder
-Jalen Parmele
-Bryce Brown
-Beanie Wells
-Plaxico Burress
-Ryan Broyles

With MJD out and FJax a perpetual injury risk, it might make sense to carry another RB. I kind of want to see what Edelman and Blackmon are all about though, that's why I added them. With Gronk out and Edelman getting more touches than Lloyd, he could be really valuable in PPR. Same with Blackmon and Henne.

So do I drop Garcon for Ronnie Hillman? Or Parmele? Or Brown? Or any of those guys?

Thanks and leave a link!!

I agree with your gut to go with Hillman. He has the highest ceiling and I am surprised he cleared waivers. I claimed him in both of my leagues with WW priority around 4-5 in both. On Yahoo, I believe it said he's owned in only 12% of leagues, which shocks me. On Fleaflicker, he's owned in 32%. Wow! As for who to drop, that's a tough one, but I think you have enough depth to let Garcon go. He has a high ceiling but he's not reliable enough to lean on in the playoffs. I assume that Blackmon and Edelman were just picked up or I'd say you could let one of them go, which would still be a good option.

Please help with mine if you have a chance.
When in doubt, punt!

Absolutely you drop Garcon for him if you have any WR depth at all.
