I say Alexander for sure.  After that I would go with Blackmon.  I think that he will have a good game with Robinson out and Henne seeming to have a lot of confidence in him.

I would go with DX and Blackmon as well. Tenn has a pretty terrible D and if Blackmon continues to get targets from Henne he could have another monster game.

I guess DX and Blackmon...though I think Smith should be due for a bounce back game...but if Blackmon maintains some semblance of his hot streak...I would go with him as he should be in line for more targets.

DX for sure.  After that, it's between Torrey and Blackmon.  Both are boom or bust.

i would do alexander and ty hilton

i dont think blackmon but he probably has more upside than hilton but id rather go with the safer option.

QB :
peyton manning

RB:
arian foster, matt forte, ahmad bradshaw, mikel leshoure, michael bush

WR:
wes welker, vincent jackson, julio jones, greg jennings

TE:
gronk and graham

DEF: bengals
K: Tynes

i usually choose a random defense based off of match ups every week and i do the same with my kicker/qb. i guess you can say i play waiver roulette every week for my qb/k/def spot.

I like Torrey / Alexander--and I'd pick up Darrius off of waivers--He's been good in past weeks, and is known for the second-half.

initially thought alexander and smith for wr, but with flacco's home/away splits, i'd stay away from smith. this leaves me with alexander and djax personally.
i'm in too many leagues.

Thinking Alexander and either Torrey or Blackmon? What do you think?

Would you still pick up any of these WRs on waivers for week 13 or Playoffs?

Malcolm Floyd
Heyward-Bey
Antonio Brown
TY Hilton
Kenny Britt

If so would you drop any of these guys?

Desean Jackson
Andre Brown
Mendenhall

Alexander and Smith. Also any of those guys are better than Djax or Blackmon. I'd grab 2 of them up (Hilton and DHB)

Well DX seems like a definite. The other slot is between Torrey and Blackmon and it is truly a gut call. Both have tasty matchups, I will say Blackmon only because him and Henne may have a better chemistry than Flacco and Smith. I expect a good game from both so you should be okay either way. thank for mine

DX is the lock.  Then, I think, Blackmon barely over Smith and Hilton.
