After Waivers…What Slop Remains?

I didn’t do a post for waivers this week because to be frank? Nothing struck my fancy. Mark Clayton should be off waivers and you should be starting him. Against my better judgement I’m starting Tim Hightower over LT. Gotta ride the hot hand and Clayton and Hightower are hotter then LT. Heck the Redskins got TORCHED against the pass last week and Oakland can’t stop the run. So what slop remains after waivers have cleared?

Keiland Williams – Unless you are in my psychotic keeper league Keiland Williams is available.  Larry Johnson was cut by the Redskins. Williams will be starting in WAS by the end of the year….no doubt! Clinton Portis is already fighting a wrist injury and I know that he will break down. Look Smart and grab Williams now.

Tony Moeaki – I talked about him early this year as a sleeper and my gut was correct. I just wish I had the patience to have hung onto him till week 2. I grabbed him in one of the three leagues and I am starting him with relative confidence. He has put up 11 points in game 1 and 2. Bottom Line – KC’s WRs are so pathetic the TE has value in this offense.

Aaron Hernandez – I talked about him early this year as well and again I lacked the patience to hold onto him. NE does have two rookie TE’s and their production will deviate from week to week. Hernandez is more a WR’s TE so in time he will have more fantasy relevance. I still rank Moeaki higher then Hernandez just because his situation is more clear cut.

Jordan Shipley – He is the #3 slot receiver in Cincy. He has had 10 catches in two games. He is a rookie but he has value in a PPR league. He can be used as a bye week replacement when the time comes. With TO and Ochocinco pulling coverage in their direction Shipley may quietly continue to put up numbers.

As I see more players that may have value I’ll bring them to you. Flukie’s Advice – Don’t be afraid to play the hot hand this week regardless of matchup.

    Running Backs: Handcuff Hierarchy by Seth Pollock
    Fluckie I use Pollock’s article as a refrence guide he has Sproles in his second Tier. If Ryan Mathews is out would your rather play Darren Sproles or Mike Tolbert? Plus what do you think about Jacob Hester as a deep sleeper?

  2. JS says:

    Tolbert all the way. TD VULTURE without Matthews in the lineup. Plus the lead back as per the 16 carries to the 5 that Sproles got. Sproles will also be a 3rd down change of pace back that will get you catches though.

    Sleeper pick at RB = Dimitri Nance as long as GB doesn’t trade for someone like Lynch.

    Love the Keiland pick Flukie. Have him on my Dynasty team.

  3. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    I agree w JS here…. Tolbert is a go with Matthews not playing.

    You got me on Jacob Hester….no nothing gotta read up on him.

    My sleeper pickup is Chris Ivory. He will be the change of pace back in NO after this week. He is coming off injury and was an undrafted rookie free agent that looked great in the preseason. Pierre Thomas has an injury hx so this is thinking ahead but I forsee Chris Ivory starting a week or so for NO in the not to distant future….

    Not sure about Nancy….I read there is another guy there coming off the PUP list that has value….think his name is Starks…Starks will be the man by week 8 if they dont pull the trigger on a Lynch or Jacobs trade….

  4. JS says:

    Yeah, Starks has potential but he has never been able to stay healthy enough to be on the field. He is a 24 yr old rookie who hasn’t taken a snap. Lost his senior season and lost a min of half of this season to bad tear in his hammy which always linger.

    Do like the Ivory call. He could very well take over where Bush left off and grab a fair amount of catches. Either him or Lance Moore will see a big uptick in production with Bush out.

    Hester needs 3 guys to go down before he would have the chance to make an impact. Mathews, Tolbert, and Sproles are all ahead of him now and for the forseable future on the depth chart.

  5. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    Good point on Starks…the injury risk is legit. I’m going to watch his progress for a possible stash.

    Thanks JS for answers AC’s Hester question….saved me the annoyance of figuring out who this guy is 🙂
