Julius Thomas worth a #1 waiver claim? WHIR

Postby strvmmer » Tue Sep 10, 2013 12:25 pm

14 team league. I've got Heath miller waiting to get healthy and Tyler Eifert as a place holder until that day comes. I would have to drop one of Miller,Eifert,Golden Tate, or Decker to make room. From what I've read Miller might play this week.

I would take J. Thomas 100% if I were you.

Eifert is still a back up to Jermaine Gresham that is used in situations all the time.

Miller is coming off of an injury on what seems to be a bad Steelers team, that isn't going to be all of a sudden much better offensively with Miller in it.

Thomas has one of the best QBs in the league throwing the ball around, and even though there's tons of options for Manning to throw to, he has always liked throwing to his TE and they pass a ton.

help with mine please,

Not sure Eifert is a "back up" he had as many catches as Gresham, and I think they played similar number of snaps, Gresham might have had more due to blocking abilities. That said, I guess to get Thomas, I'd drop Eifert. Thomas I feel like has a much higher ceiling, but you cant expect that Manning will throw 7 TD's every week so obviously all the bronco recievers have some inflated stats.
