Need advice WR2 in playoffs

Postby styxbb » Sat Dec 08, 2012 11:51 am

Started season 7-1 and limped into playoffs at 8-5. My opponent and I are averaging right around 100 pts. over the last month(crappy). Looking for the dark horse to squeak me by.
I have:
Maclin - @ TB, afraid to play him with Foles at QB(13 pts in 3 games). But, TB giving up most pts. to WR's.
Blackmon v. Jets, With Shorts out, will get his looks, but will match up with Cromartie most of the day.
Alexander @ Pitt - Chargers # 1, but tough matchup.

Best waiver wire options- My opinion
Chris Givens - @ Buff. With Amendola out had 2 pretty good weeks. Amendola still Questionable.
Josh Gordon - KC - Been coming on strong lately.

BTW: .5 PPR

What would you do? WHIR

If Amendola is out and the weather is okay in Buffalo (not raining), I think I'd shoot for Givens... I'd be surprised if he didn't catch at least 6. Otherwise, I would go with DX. Ike Taylor, the Steelers best cover corner (especially on bigger WRs) is out, so I think there will be some opportunities there, and they should be playing from behind. Gordon is intriguing as well, and KC may be due for a let down after last week, so I would put him #3.

If Amendola is ruled out givens is your man. If not I think Alexander is the way to go with Ike Taylor out for the steelers

I'm leaning more towards Gordon, but it's very close.

By the way, if I pick up a waiver guy, I have to drop one, maclin, blackmon, or alexander.
