Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Ya Miller should get a good amount of targets, but Matt Glennon targets only worth like a half a target each.

I would be very surprised if the Bears don't have the most dropped passes this season. Glennon has been very good at hitting receivers directly in their hands, they get dropped and people say Glennon sucks. He does sorta suck when it comes to mobility and staring guys down but he is pretty accurate.

Good information to know. Thanks because I'll never be watching a bear's game

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

With Sproles injured, is Smallwood worth using the 6th waiver spot in a 12-team non-PPR league? Pretty thin at RB with McCafferty, Blount, K. Williams, Perine, Kamara, and ADP.

Also, who would you drop - Funchess, K. Williams, or ADP? Leaning ADP as he seems bad and don't really see a path for him to start getting more touches.

He is going to be the hot name on waivers this week. Doubt you have to worry about it in the 6th spot

I'll have a shot, guys with spots 1-5 are semi-active (which is why they have the top waiver spots).

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

I keep hoarding. Hoarding a ONE, a FOUR, and a FIVE.

Bye weeks are going to start soon, backups are going to get dropped, and injuries will hit. Gonna be nice to have top priorities when that happens.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Someone in a $50 YPL dropped Manny Sanders after week 1; I think that's the best case scenario for hoarding the #1 waiver. Problem is that you can't really forecast others' mistakes.

It's only week 3. A valuable WW is going to come up in the next 8 weeks

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Unless you are 100% locked into the playoffs, which at this point is damn near impossible to predict, the #1 waiver is worth less and less the longer you hold it since whoever you use it on will be on your team for fewer games.

I have the #1 now because the previous #1 used it on Cohen. Never was a spot to land him anywhere. Ditto Buck.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

One of my league resets the waiver priority each week purely based on record, so I imagine if I lose a big player, I'm screwed if I have a winning record -_-

that makes sense to me.

i feel like theres much less harm using your waivers in weeks ~1-4 since youll move back up the ladder anyway, assuming its an active league.

id be really curious if anyone has actually looked at when the latest to use your waivers makes sense. at a certain point, youre just using them for QB/DEFs for the playoffs that youre stashing and streaming.

I had one league that did this, and all it really means is you have the freedom to just make a million claims. I thought it really invalidated the whole waiver wire system. We moved to faab.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

If he's available and you have the space I would suggest stashing Alex Collins. All the noise has been about Buck but all the tape I've watched of Collins has been impressive. Garbage time for sure but I would not be surprised if West pooched the running duties and Collins was asked to step up.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

I think the amount of quality #2 backs that become volume runners is so high, and the RB position so scarce, that I'm ok to hoard my waiver. Granted my leagues don't have many benches deeper than 6, and it gets pretty hard to cuff when bye weeks hit. Just waiting on that Injury to a Hunt or Le'Veon that gives you an RB2 for free. Doubt we can hope for much better.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

What are we doing with Buck allen in non ppr 12 man? Im last waiver but I was thinking of making my waiver priorities Smallwood, Blount and Alex Collins in that order and dropping Allen. I don't understand how he didn't see the field until late 2nd quarter after his previous performance but I don't see me trusting him ever again.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

I've got a team with Hunter Henry as my only TE, trying to work out if I should drop him for someone else or just ride it out with him.

It's a pretty deep 14-team PPR league so there aren't a heap of waiver options: Jermaine Gresham, Ryan Griffin and David Njoku are probably the best available. Any thoughts?

Is there like no one good this week worth using a waiver pick? (12 team standard). RBs are Ty Mont-Abdullah-Henry-Perkins, kinda rough.

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

12 team .5 ppr. i'm 3-0 but solely due to great luck in points against because my team is pretty garbage. how much would you guys be willing to spend on james white? 2 rb/2wr/1flex. my rbs are demarco murray/lamar miller/burkhead/david johnson stash

white isn't amazing or anything but he has a defined role in a great offense and the other options on the waiver wire are pure handcuffs at best. we have $200 in auction money for waivers and i'm thinking about spending around 75-100 bucks just so i have some peace of mind that i will not be completely screwed if miller loses his job or murray gets injured/loses his job. is that about right or would you guys rather wait? i really don't see anyone else available at all...alex collins gone, jets lottery ticket elijah whoever is gone, smallwood gone, etc. i guess orleans darkwa is there lol maybe he overtakes perkins and the giants offense gives him some goal line looks with beckham back but the point is the wire is barren

Re: 2017 NFL Waiver Wire

Somebody in my league just spent 55/200 On Charles Sims. Smdh

I would go way less on White. Doubt people are breaking the bank for him. Was he dropped?
