Waivers and Start/Sit Advice - Week 13

Somehow, I acquired Adrian Peterson (CHI) off the waiver wire last night. I am ranked #2 in this league and thus had the 11th ranking for waiver transactions. Since I had Benson in that league, I put in the request for AP2 and I ended up getting him. Droughns and Cobbs went off the wire first - does anyone else find that odd? Are expectations that low for AP2? Granted, I'm not sure I'll be starting him anytime soon since I've got a little depth at RB, but I can't believe someone actually wanted Cobbs before Peterson. It's a strange fantasy world out there.

So there are of course more waiver wire articles to read this fine morning if you find yourself still in need of grabbing a free agent:
  • CBS Sports' Playing through the Wire: Fantasy epidemic - an important note is somewhat buried in here - Selvin Young is expected to play this week. He's questionable right now but keep an eye on his status. Another interesting tidbit from the Denver Post: the Raiders haven't scored in 10 of their last 14 quarters when hosting Denver.
  • NFL's Fabiano: Enjoy Tom Brady's success while it lasts - why Brady is likely to be a massive disappointment next year (my husband is thrilled at that thought) but also a wavier wire focus that includes Isaac Bruce, Justin Gage and my boy Scheffler.
  • 411 Fantasy Football's Week 13 Waivers - need a kicker? How about Scobee, a man with not only a great leg but a great last name, too.
  • Pigskin Addiction's Waiver Wire Gems - is Anthony Gonzalez still a free agent in your league? Definitely a guy worth considering...
  • FF Today's Through the Wire: Week 13 - personally I am very interested in what kind of numbers and action Javon Walker sees this weekend.
  • Fox Sports' Waiver watch: Claim Branch, Engram - some love for the Seattle receivers.
Wondering if any start/sit sites are up yet? Yes. So read on...

I was wondering who i should plug into my WR slot for this weekend. I need to pick two between Marques Colston, Donald Driver, and Joey Galloway.

I am not sure if Brees is going to have a decent day and a bad day for Brees should mean a bad day for Galloway.

Donald Driver has a week secondary this week so he should be a decent pick but then again i don't know if it will push him over the top of the other two.

Joey Galloway has ripped apart NO last game and even in previous years, but Galloway is so streaky i'm not sure if he is a good choice this week.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!

I'm sorry to say that the Brady article wasn't interesting (love your blog, regardless). I thought the story was going to have a scoop on what NE ownership planned to do about the WR free agents. Saying that Brady won't have two record-breaking seasons in a row isn't exactly going out on a limb... but if Moss and Welker come back, I'll take Brady in a heartbeat next year.
Cyberfire - I'd go with Colston. I know there are some Brees (and thus Colston) naysayers out there this week, but Colston has just gotten it done several weeks in a row now.

Sammy - you're a smart one. I do imagine there will be much clamoring for Brady in early rounds next year. If I can find an article that has the scoop on NE's plans, I will let you know. But then I'd probably be a miracle worker. I do love hearing any sort of feedback at all, so thanks for the info.

Who would you start this week?Pick one

Plaxico Burress
Bernard Berrian
Amani Toomer

Thanks
Of those three, I think I'd go with Berrian. The Giants have given up some big receiving yards and Grossman and Berrian seem to be connecting well.

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
