Is Tyler Eifert worth an add?

 

Yes.  TE is a wasteland, and he might get more looks if Green is out.

Jordan Matthews for those in deep league half/full PPR formats

Man. What a world.

 

 

My ww transactions list:

Baker Mayfield

Cam Meredith

 

It's a 12 team 17 round league though so the big pickups every week are usually gone i my league

 

I'm gonna have to read waiver wired tomorrow and think about stuff like maybe picking up jordan matthews. Man. That guy single handedly ruined a fantasy season for me

V. McDonald 

D. Goedert

 

Not sure which one is better ROS but, outside big 3, TE spot is HURTIN'.

McDonald for sure. IMO

Goedert probably just had his best game. Zach Ertz is in front of him and Jesse James is in front of Vance. Vance is supposed to be "the guy" at tight end. Goedert is supposed to be a backup, TE in the occasional 2 TE formations, and backup for the somewhat oft injured Ertz. He has no chance to advance to the top of the depth chart in the way Vance does. I know it's obvious but Vance is the guy. If he had been healthy he would have been a hype machine a la Burton coming into the season

Kyle Juszczyk in PPR leagues. May be seeing a lot of dump off passes without Jimmy G.

 

Ito Smith in deep leagues as a deep flex....could seer upwards 10 carries, catch a few passes.

Jalen Richards also saw 6 targets and caught 5 of them. Second time this year he has put up nice Ppr numbers.

Case Keenum is a good stream this week

At home against KC - could definitely do worse.

We still haven’t had any big WW guys yet.

 

I would be wary of spending tons of FAAB on these WRs, the market is saturated with WR3/Flex types and early in the year we often overinflate the value of the WW guys as we’re eager to get that league winner.  Plus at some point a RB will get hurt and I wouldn’t want to spend all my $ before that happens.

Yeah I've just been dragging my feet and getting someone for $0 every week, but we're starting to run out of upside guys at this point. I'm willing to spend some FAAB on WRs, but not much. Just depends on your league type and your wire. Good advice though.

Haven't followed the Ravens at all, but is John Brown their #1? Seems like Crab hasn't done much.

 

Been going back and forth on Boyd and Ridley myself. Beginning to lean Boyd. Falcons were taking advantage of the Saints terrible corner opposite of Lattimore. WR2 have been going crazy vs NO for this reason. Sanu also exists, who will take away targets from Ridley, plus Freeman is coming back soon. 

 

Allison probably 4th. Seems more TD dependent than the rest.

 

Boyd #1 (good schedule coming up and especially if news green misses this week) avging over 80% snaps - clear #2 WR

J. Brown #2 (gets the targets/gets the snaps/scores tds - consistent player) -  Do you need the consistent WR2/3 in lineup or a high boom player?

Ridley #3 (will have off weeks where people cover him more and Julio eats - but also weeks where he goes off ) Risky Flex play - once again depends what you are looking for.  Could be #1 on your list if you just want a matchup plug every few weeks at flex...

Allison #4 - Cobb is getting targets but not producing - Allison at least 60 yards all 3 games and 2 games with TD.  Worth a look at.

 

Overall as we can see many WR options out there on wire - not worth big WW spending unless you are desperate at WR - these type of players way more plentiful than any RB's.  Simply be careful what you drop for them.

I think Njoku has better chances of producing better numbers then Burton has with Mitch

 

Basically you think Baker is better than Mitchell. Agree with you. Been waiting for them to get Tyrod the hell out of there.

I actually think waivers is pretty weak right now.. I am looking at some D's for week 5 already to beat the rush. A couple of the good ones I saw:

 

Titans on the road vs Bills

 

Panthers (on a bye so even if owned might get dropped) home vs Giants

For those in deeper leagues, heres a name you may want to put on your radar:

 

Keke Coutee, WR Hou: Ellington to the IR opens up playing time.  Set to return from hamstring injury.  Should also contribute on S/T for leagues that reward returns.

So would you suggest using a waiver priority #3 on boyd or just wait till an injury to a running back opens up opportunities for the fill in RB?

RB DeLance Turner, Ravens

 

Dude had a good training camp and preseason, just got called up from the practice squad with Dixon out for an extended period (again).

 

Collins has averaged 3.4ypc so far, Buck Allen just 2ypc. 

 

Turner is good enough to (at worst) get a few carries per game, and at best overtake Collins if he continues to struggle. 

 

If Collins goes down, Turner will be the #1 add. Stash him now while you can get him for free!

Jamis Winston anyone?

Not me and I'm a FSU fan. I don't believe Winston is playing with a full deck. Hard to be a fan of his.

Rhett Ellison for those in deep leagues. 

 

"Ellison will take on a larger role while Evan Engram recovers from an MCL sprain, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports."

...
"The veteran blocking specialist displayed some unexpected versatility in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Texans, catching each of his three targets for 39 yards and a touchdown while playing 87 percent of the snaps on offense."

Is it too early to start talking about scooping Dont'a Foreman?  

 

Miller looked adequate through the first two weeks, but last weeks showing against the G-Men was dreadful (10 carries for 10 yards).  With a healthy Foreman offering more explosiveness, I'd expect at least a timeshare at worst awaiting Dont'a, who will have fresh legs, once activated beginning in week 7.
