Waiver Pickup - week 6

Postby The Pyrate » Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:51 am

Team in sig below.

Brandon Marshall is done. I'm not going to hang onto him or bring him back next year. But who should I get to help my team?

These are my waiver options:
  • D.Williams
    M.Floyd
    P.Dorsett
    C.Patterson
    W.Smallwood
    J.Gordon (dare I include him as a flyer?)
    S.Ware (I have space I can IR players)
Who would you pick up and why?

Smallwood should be rostered due to his use in Philly with Sproles down and Ware can be a freebie into your IR spot (never know if he ends up on a new team next year making him valuable again)

Agree with Smallwood. He tends to disappoint, but you never know.

Smallwood and it's not close.

If you end up snagging a 2nd player, I'd take a free shot on Floyd
BOTH TEAMS BELOW ARE 1QB

TEAM A - 12 teams (19 R/U, 18 Champ, 17 R/U)
HERBERT, Brees, Tua, Wentz
COOK/JACOBS/MIXON, Dobbins, Swift, Hunt, Singletary, Bell, B Hill, Wilkins
NUK/HILL/GOLLADAY/K ALLEN, Diontae J, Hollywood, Ruggs, Pittman, Hilton, G Davis, Snead
KITTLE, Waller, Akins, H Bryant
-
Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league. Joey Bosa, Buckner, Sweat, and Cam Jordan are my main studs.
///
///
TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get 1.5x bump in scoring
LAMAR, Cousins, Rivers, J Love
SAQUON/MIXON/CARSON, Dobbins, Lindsay, Mattison, Ingram, D Freeman, Clement
NUK/K ALLEN/JULIO/AROB, Evans, Thielen, DJ Moore, Lamb, Boyd, Coutee, Alshon
KITTLE/L Thomas, Ertz, Reed
Danielle Hunter, Aaron Donald, and Chris Jones are the cornerstones of my IDP squad.

Well crap, someone beat me to Smallwood (I did get Ware). Probably ok, since I do have to pick up a TE (we only have waivers once per week on Wednesdays and since Kelce and Reed are both showing on the injury list I went TE to protect).

One more note on my league for those suggesting kicker drop, probably ok for now, but waivers also close on week 13 (we have no pickups during the championship weeks (14-16)), so I usually almost always carry 2 kickers. Better to find them before than take a flyer in week 13.

Strange league, right? (it's pretty fun thinking strategy). Back to Waivers week 7...

Since Smallwood is out, I saw a couple of votes for Floyd. Any thoughts on the other WRs?

definitely Ware for me, esp with an IR spot, the Ware owner in my league wanted a 2nd round pick for him, so he definitely still has value in a lot of people's eyes.
