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:
- The Goat is so reliable. FF Goat's Fantasy Football Waiver Wire and Sleepers Watch Week 10 is already up and chock full of ideas.
- Fantasy Football Xtreme's Week 10: Players on the Rise/Decline - not only looks at some key players' values after their week 9 performances, but also includes wavier wire suggestions.
- Bruno Boys' Work the Wire, the Waiver Wire - Week 10 promotes picking up Priest Holmes. As do the Football Docs in Pickup/Drop Advice.
