View Full Version : Waiver Wire acquisitions...HELP!

09-22-2008, 10:06 AM
Okay, to be brief I'm in a 14 team keeper league. We have 5 adds throughout the whole year. We don't drop players and we don't have a roster requirement. I've already used mine on Tim Hightower and ATL's D. I'm going to list several FA options for each position - I wanna add some depth to RB and WR. Here is my current team with added bye weeks:

Roethlisberger(6), Schaub(2)
Selvin Young(8), McGahee(2), Rudi Johnson(4), Hightower(7), Kolby Smith(6)
Fitzgerald(7), Santonio Holmes(6), Mason(2), DJ Hackett(9)
Cooley(10), Benjamin Watson(4)
Rob Bironas(6)
Pitt D(6), Atl D(7)

And here's is a small, modified list of available players at each position

Brian Griese
Gus Frerotte
Kyle Orton
Joe Flacco
Tyler Thigpen

Obviously the available QBs are very thin. The only one who is somewhat intriguing is Griese. I'm not too worried about picking up a RB because Schaub plays Miami on Big Ben's bye week.

Running Backs
Kevin Jones
Lorenzo Booker
Kevin Faulk
Sammy Morris
Michael Pittman
Le'Ron McClain
Correll Buckhalter

I'm not too worried about my RB situation yet. I just feel that I need a number one guy, instead of guys who will continually split carries the rest of the year. Pittman may be a late P/U based on handcuff potential and he tends to get goal line carries.

Wide Recievers
Darrell Jackson
Mark Clayton
Amani Toomer
Marty Booker
Robert Meachem
Steve Smith - NYG
Arnaz Battle
Michael Jenkins
Brandon Lloyd
Antonio Bryant
Greg Lewis
Hank Baskett
Jordy Nelson
Miles Austin
Jason Avant
Justin McCareins

The guy who most intrigues me on this list is Meachem, at least until Colston comes back. I also like Mark Clayton and Toomer too.

I'm not going to list TE positions because I am 2-deep and I don't plan on picking up a kicker until Pitt's bye week.

In this league I am 2-1, but I'm always looking at ways to help improve my team and my team's depth.

Oh, and starting requirements: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, 1D, 1K.

QB's are so thin you might take a flyer on Brady Quinn for upside.
