Waiver Wire Week 12
Blow your FAAB this week!
Please note that I play in 10 and 12 team leagues with 27-30 player rosters, so between 300-324 players are already on rosters in my leagues. That said, here are some of the guys I'll be putting bids in on this week.
This is going to be a competitive week on the waiver wire. People are going to spend the rest of their FAAB to pick up one guy in particular.
Last week I did not list any QBs.
Colt McCoy (Washington): Alex Smith's injury was brutal. They are saying it will take him 6-8 months to come back but it is possible that it could take longer, if not be career ending. Washington considered keeping McCoy as their starter several times during the Kirk Cousins franchise tagging years, so they do like him. He's going to get to finish this season for sure. Mark Sanchez has just been signed to be Colt's backup. He's a smart player and has won games before. He'd be worth adding 2-QB leagues for sure, and could help this year in 1-QB leagues if you've been hurting at QB.
Last week I listed Jaylen Samuels. He was taken up in all of my leagues last week. He's great to have as the now and future handcuff for Conner.
Gus Edwards (Baltimore): Here's the blow your FABB play of the year. It's not that he is the most talented guy. He was an undrafted free agent that I had never heard of until he stated gettting some carries this year. But Baltimore made it clear last week that they are going to give him the load from now on. Combine that with the new threat of Lamar Jackson running and we have the perfect storm. He's going to get the ball often and there will be room for him to run. I'm not convinced it is a great long-term dynasty play - that he is will be the future in Balitmore. But I am convinced he is going to play a factor the rest of the season in our dynasty leagues. I'd spend the rest of my FAAB to try to get him. Too bad I don't have much FAAB left.
Last week I listed Trey Quinn and Brandon Marshall. What did I tell you about Trey Quinn? He shined the first full game of his career, catched all 4 of his targets for 49 yards. Wise managers grabbed him before his first game, but if he is still out there in your leagues, make him you top WR to target this week. As for Brandon Marshall, we didn't get to see him contribute last week. He's a rest of the season option only. I would drop him for the guys I list below.
- Marcell Ateman (Oakland): He has his chance to play now that Jordy and Lafell are injured. Sunday he caught 4 of 5 passes for 50 yards. He is an athletic WR from Oklahoma State who was drafted in the last round of some rooikie drafts or at least added to teams when rosters expanded. Few teams in my leagues held on to him this whole time, but he should be picked up in ever league this week for sure just to see what he makes of this opportunity.
- Chris Conley (Kansas City): He had been averaging 2 targets a game until last night when he was targeted 8 times and turned those into 7 catches, 74 yards, and 2 TDs. He was a SPARQ score standout when he came into the league but has just never created or earned a role for himself. The depth chart is going ot be hard for him to overcome in Kansas City when Watkins is healthy and they are not in 50 point shootouts like last night.
Last week I listed Nick Vannett. He still got the same 60% of the snaps last week so I still believe the job is his in Seattle, even though he didn't do much. I am holding on to him in the leagues where I picked him up last week.
- Dan Arnold (New Orleans): This is one of those be smarter than everyone kind of moves. He has yet to really break out, but he's getting more and more play time. I first heard of him on the Ross Tucker Football Podcast when Ross said he spoke with the TE coach in New Orleans and that coach said they are really high on him and have been grooming him to take over that roll. It's starting to happen. He has some Jimmy Graham qualities. If you want to appear to be the smartest manager, then grab him before he breaks out.
