Dynasty League Football


Waiver Wire Advice: Week Nine

We’ll be covering some of the hot names on the majority of dynasty league waiver wires each week for our premium content members.  These players will likely be owned in a great minority of dynasty leagues.  We won’t waste your time with bigger names who are likely owned in your league like Alfred Morris, or the likely one week wonders like Dante Rosario because you guys are just too good for that.  We’re simply going to cover some players who could be targets this week if you have an open roster spot and are willing to throw a dart and hope to get lucky.

Just remember one very important thing – you’re in a dynasty league, not a re-draft league. Don’t get too enamored by the one hit wonders and drop your young projects in a quest to find lightning in a bottle. Savvy dynasty league owners will tell you the best players on the wire each and every year end up being the ones dropped by impatient owners, not the ones who suddenly break out. We won’t repeat any names here, so check out the names we’ve already mentioned at the bottom of this list.

One caveat again this week.  This is quite honestly the single worst season I can remember on the waiver wire. When you look at the laundry list of names, it’s not exactly an all-pro cast. There have been a few worthy picks, but not many. It’s getting skinnier by the week, so remember to check out the long laundry list of prior suggestions at the bottom.

With that being said, here are this week’s picks in order of priority:

Logan Paulsen, TE WAS

Paulsen seemed to be the beneficiary of the loss of Fred Davis as he posted four catches for 43 yards. He’s not exactly a star in the making, but he may be able to cover for a bye week at some point.

Josh Morgan, WR WAS

Morgan is very quietly picking up targets and catches for the Redskins. His position in the offense doesn’t typically lend itself to much action, but he’s starting to pick up the pace.

Clyde Gates, WR NYJ

Gates has been a huge disappointment since his days in Miami, but he hauled in seven catches for 82 yards this week. He’s more of a player to monitor, but at least he finally showed up in the box score.

Johnny White, RB GB

If the Packers don’t make a move via trade, they may just kick the tires on every back they have. Alex Green just isn’t getting the job done right now and they don’t seem to have much faith in James Starks.

Seriously, that’s pretty much it this week. We obviously have a pretty long laundry list of players from the first part of the season, but it’s pretty quiet on the waiver front at the moment.

What do you think about Drew “D.J.” Davis as a waiver pickup this week? Someone needs to produce in the WR3 role in Atlanta and Harry Douglas has been largely underwhelming thus far. In such an explosive offense I think that he could be a good stash. He put up a decent statline of 2/30/1 in his first career game. He’s a good sized WR at 6’1″/205 and is only 23. Any thoughts on him?

22 roster 1/2 PPR dynasty league

I have LeSean McCoy, and last week dropped Bryce Brown for Nick Foles on the waiver. With the news on him this week, I am pretty excited I did. However, my RB depth is not great, and I would be devastated if Shady went down. That said, do you recommend that I drop Bernard Pierce (I do not own Ray Rice) to pick back up Bryce Brown? I really have no other considerations for dropping guys – borderline players would be vincent brown and Mark Ingram.

Also, somehow Brian Hartline got dropped last week. Is he worth grabbing over any of the aformentioned players?

Thanks guys!

Not a waiver question but what is Cobb worth in a trade? Would it be crazy to trade Larry Fitzgerald for Cobb ?
