AP and other news from Week 9

I have a sad confession to make. I have Adrian Peterson in one league and yet did NOT win in that league. Stunning, right? By our scoring standards, he gave me 37.5 points but the rest of my team had a decidedly mediocre week - and my opponent had Hasselbeck, T.O., Randy Moss, and Tony Gonzalez, all of whom had pretty stellar weeks. So while AP hopefully led many of you to a sweet, sweet victory, I am going to have to whip the rest of my team into shape.

Onto other news...were you all wondering why Priest Holmes was suddenly seeing a handful of carries? So was I. Apparently Larry Johnson injured his ankle and will be out for at least one week. And how about Jamal Lewis with 4 TDs? Yeah, I have Derek Anderson in one league and was getting more and more irate each time Jamal ran in a TD, particularly since the guy I was playing had Jamal on his team. [Note: AP broke Jamal Lewis' record of 295 rushing yards from 2003.] And Jay Cutler, Chad Johnson, Jerious Norwood, Ryan Grant, and Ahman Green (surprise, surprise) all injured? It's rough out there. Check out KFFL's Hot Off the Wire for injury updates.

So with those injuries in mind, let's take a look at some early waiver wire thoughts for week 10 of the NFL season:

You're not alone, I had Adrian Peterson as well in a league and got destroyed, as my opponent had Drew Brees, Detroit DEF, Clinton Portis and Jason Witten...what a waste!

i've been poking around your blog for a minute. i really like it. i was on the receiving end of a team featuring peterson. let's just say this has been my worst week. i also picked up scheffler too, but he didn't do anything for me. oh well...

Very nice blog, I have been checking this out for 2 weeks now, very impressed. The person in my league with AP lost too. Maybe it is bad luck to have someone so good.

What the hell should I do with Mark Bulger?

Thanks, aquababie. I'll be interested in Scheffler's chemistry with Ramsey if Cutler doesn't start this week. I still think he's worth a start but keep an eye on any news/reports out of Denver.

Wayne, your question about Bulger is a great one. Yet another offensive lineman went down for the Rams in week 8 and I have serious qualms about Bulger with such a decimated line. This week they do play the Saints though who gave up 350 yards to Quinn Gray last weekend, so there's hope. But they also intercepted Gray 3 times. I can see that exact same thing happening to Bulger this week, which relatively speaking, could be a decent outcome. So ultimately, I think it depends on who you have as your backup QB. I'd certainly hang onto Bulger but would be careful about starting him.
