Waiver Wire Advice: Week 10

Happy Election Day! And Waiver Wire Prep Day! Here's to casting your vote. Read on for Mike's advice for your waiver wire work this week. 

This week may be the least exciting week of the season in terms of enticing waiver wire additions. There aren’t very many players who haven’t already been mentioned that jump off the page as must-adds. However, there are six teams on bye this week, and you should be looking to take advantage of this. Your best pickups this week may be players that are currently on other rosters.

It’s certainly possible that you are going to be scrambling to piece together a lineup this week yourself, but there will undoubtedly be a couple of teams in your league that will be in that same position. With that in mind, keep an eye on players that other teams in your league are dropping this week. There very well may be some useful or high-upside players that other teams have been stashing for most of the season that they won’t have the luxury of holding on to this week because of all the byes.

I mentioned this last week, but if Josh Gordon is still available in your league, get him now! He’ll be back on the field in week 12. He’s also the type of player that another owner may feel compelled to drop this week in order to fill their lineup.

It appears Adrian Peterson may also be coming back this season. He falls into the same category as Gordon, as a player that can tip the scales and win your league.

Drop me a note on Twitter with any questions or comments.

On to the links:
  • Adam Levitan of Rotoworld notes that Terrance West is the RB currently in favor for the Cleveland Browns.
  • Christopher Harris from ESPN utters the most surprising three words of the fantasy football season: Add Mark Sanchez
  • Brad Evans from Yahoo also likes West, and reminds us that Ryan Mathews will be back on the field soon.
  • Fantasy Knuckleheads has Charles Sims atop their list, if he was unclaimed last week.
  • Numberfire includes Alfred Blue in their recommendations, with Arian Foster’s hamstrings never a sure bet to make it through the season.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
