Listen, if you read this blog, you know we know our stuff. Go back and look at our track record. We have called out waiver wire picks weeks before those “other sites.” We do not state the obvious. We do the work and you get the results.
This time of year the waiver wire is thin. This much is certain. However, there are opportunities for you. At his point in the season, there are team owners in your league that have given up. This will reduce the number of teams in play for waiver wire transactions. I can’t say this for all leagues, but for some, this is very possible. Our view is to never give up. Be a spoiler. Beat your friends. It’s fun to steal a player or knock your buddy out of the playoff race. Some don’t subscribe to this idea.
Did you pick up Bobby Rainey like we told you last week? If you did you would have been rewarded.
FYI if you didn’t see “A Football Life – The Forward Pass” on the NFL network. Watch it. I am no slave to hyperbole, but it’s amazing.
Reread previous weeks post in the Waiver Wire section. There may be players still sitting out on your leagues waiver wire that we talked about weeks ago.
WR Michael Floyd – He has probably been on and off rosters all season. He had a monster last week, over 190 yards. He is wildly inconsistent and is nowhere near a sure thing. However, if you are searching for a WR.
WR Jericho Cotchery – Here is another guy that has been sitting out in your league on and off all season. Recently, he has garnered more consistent playing time. This has resulted in increased productivity. If Emmanuel Sanders is dinged up this week, he could be a sneaky WR3 play.
QB Matt McGloin – This guy torched a pretty good Texans secondary. He is an undrafted rookie. In fact, he wasn’t even signed after the draft, he had several tryouts just do get into a camp. He was 18 for 32 for 197 yards and 3 TD’s No ints. I wouldn’t get crazy here. He is a low level injury or bye week replacement, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
Buffalo Bills Defense- Crazy right? Depending on your scoring format, they are around 10th in the league in points. At this point in the season, they can be a great matchup play if you choose wisely. Get ready for this. They are leading the league in interceptions with 16 and have 37 sacks that leads the league. They are probably better than one or both of the defenses you are carrying.
