Week 3 waiver wire wisdom

I managed to stay up for the entirety of Monday Night Football last night and was rewarded with a pretty entertaining 4th quarter. Other than the over usage of The Sheriff nickname, last night's game was surprisingly good. Perhaps that's just because I enjoy seeing Peyton do his thing. For a Knoxville, TN native like my husband though, last night was a battle of QBs with Knoxville connections with Pennington from the area and Peyton a Tennessee grad.

But enough looking back on last night...I've got a big day ahead. Wish me luck - I've got a job interview with an academic library here in NYC. I also am chatting with the Fantasy Football Tonight guys (Tuesday edition) at around 10:15 PM eastern, so tune in if you can.

Now let's scope out today's links...

  • Lots of injuries out there like Jason Campbell's sprained foot, Brett Favre's bent fingernail, and Frank Gore's sprained ankle - none of those seem like they'll cause any lineup issues for FFers. But heads up Matt Hasselbeck and Mike Bell owners - you might want to consider replacement players.
  • FantasySharks.com's On the Rise, On the Fall takes a look at some players whose stock is changing. Good trade fodder here, though I do like to wait until Week 3 games have passed before making too many trades.  Perhaps I lose out on some value by waiting but I'm a firm believer in giving teams a chance to evolve early in the season. 
  • A few waiver wire links for you:
  • Love Rotoworld's Making a Statement. Figure out whose performances you can panic over and which guys still have a promising season to come.  
  • Finally, I kept hitting refresh on FFToday, hoping that their Fantasy Strength of Schedule would be available until I realized that today is Tuesday not Wednesday (the day their SoS is available). I thought I'd remark on this since that clearly shows my love for their SoS, which I will absolutely be linking to tomorrow. Until then, why not peruse their site for other gems?

Word! Fftoday's SoS is a major influence for me with regards to picking second tier players and waiver-wire spot starts.

Fantasy Sharks is not even worth the URL click any longer.
The content is lame and is the master of the obvious unless you live in a cave in Jordan alongside the Dead Sea.

The SOS is ALWAYS available under "Tools" on the center bar...enjoy!
