It’s getting thin and most rosters are locking out soon. This will be out last of the waiver wire pick ups section. We will have thoughts moving forward more directed and dynasty and keeper as some of the younger players get looks for the teams that have fallen out of playoff contention.
As always look at our past waiver wire updates for players that still may be available in your league.
Next year, we will work on another format to keep track of previous weeks waiver pickups in a useful way for our readers.
You might want to consider dropping WR Percy Harvin. I am not sure how much he is going to play and if he does, he probably isn’t worth the start. This was a homerun swing type pick up, sometimes you win sometimes you lose.
You also might want to drop RB Brian Leonard. He hasn’t gotten many touches since Bobby Rainey’s big game 2 weeks ago. There isn’t much out there, but there isn’t any room on my team for a guy that doesn’t get the ball.
WR Michael Crabtree –we told you have him on your radar and pick him up the past few weeks. If you did, you are sitting pretty with a nice WR3 with upside. If you didn’t, you will have to battle the rest of the league for him.
WR Andre Holmes – He isn’t worth much in a redraft league at this point. He is worth a flier in dynasty if you have the roster spot. Pay close attention to him in the next few weeks. Not a must pick up, but a guy to keep an eye on in dynasty
TE Ladarius Green – Well we told you to start him last week. If you listened to us, you were rewarded. He had a nice game. He also played 91% of the offensive snaps. That bodes well moving forward for him. If he is still out there in your league, He is worth the pickup, especially if you are weak at TE.
Raiders Defense – We aren’t crazy. They are playing the Jets this week. The Jets are playing some of the worst offensive football I have seen since the 1992 Seahawks. This is a good match up play this week. If you are looking for a little juice for this week’s game and your playoff push, look to Oakland!
