Best Waiver Pickup THROUGH Week #4 (1 Viewer)

Goooals

Footballguy
Some leagues that do not use the waiver wire allow pickups at certain points during the season. If you had the chance, who would you now pickup off of the waiver wire through the 4th week of the season.

The list can be by position or by rankings:

QB

JTO (edited) how could I forget this guy!

Edwards

Orten

Griese

RB

R Johnson

Sproles

WR

Royal

Breaston

Bruce

Moore

Anyone feel like chiming in?

Though week 4, meaning the best of the season? In my league, probably O'Sullivan/Matt Jones(JAX)/Jackson(PHI), or Royal(DEN). Nothing spectacular just yet, but that second half stud RB will emerge!

 
Royal and Slaton. I grabbed each of these guys in separate leagues. Wish I was about to get them both in all of my leagues..

 
I have picked up some of the guys mentioned, but haven't really played many of them.....mostly snagged them just to improve my depth and to keep them off the roster of other teams where they could probably be starting.....

 
Tenn D has been money
Grabbed them after week one, they've put my team over the edge twice now to win close gamesThere really hasn't been a stud pick up in deeper leagues thus far, no Ryan Grant's or Earnest Graham's so far but it may take an injury for something like that to happen again.
 
It sounds like your league is like mine. we have waiver pickups after weeks 4,8,& 12. (2 players per waiver session).

These are in addition to what's been posted

K. Curtis WR (Phi)

F. Jackson RB (Buf) (PPR format)

In years past there's always been a few we missed in the draft that turned out to be big time players, whether they are now replacing injured starters or ones we just missed on. but I've been looking over the free agents and there's not a whole lot out there right now. Pretty sure none will be starters (maybe a couple) anyway, some nice bye week fillers though.

M. Bush...... can;t beleive he's not mentioned. Got him a couple leagues as I did Sproles. But Bush looks the better pick up so far with LT finally showing some life!

Of the recievers probably M. Jones for me. I missed out on the Moore run and the Breaston run will be there this week especially if Boldin misses any time!

One smart dude in my dynasty drafted Royal in first round of rookie draft first receiver taking last August first and everyone was making fun of him! Jackson was never on waivers to begin with!

(None of my leagues at least! )

Fassano could turn out to be the best of the TE'S! Though he already stuck me with a couple goose eggs! As did Stevens this week trying to figure out who to sub for Shockey. Dallas, ect!

Buffulo should be best D in long run of my waiver claims. Tennesee was never there any of my leagues!

qb's there really hasnt been one yet. Osullivan was never on waivers since season begin. He was a nice off season claim in misfits or me. As was Ortin! Ortin is surpriseing me and it's a good thing being forced to use him one league as a Brady replacement! I picked Fitspatrick over him this week and fortunatly didn't cost me loss!

 
Deuce was available this week in my league (8-team league). I think everyone had given up on him. If he continues to get as many carries as he did this past week, he would be a steal.

 
Fasano & I did grab him. A lot of the guys listed were drafted in my league. I wish I had Royal.

Sproles? Meh, I traded him.

Is Curtis due back this week?
 
Royal will go number 1. After that, I really think its a toss up. It just depends on what you need. Some with take RB's (Rudi, Deuce, Bush) while others pickup the leftover QB's and WR.

 
Sproles, for me. I flipped him w/ MEGATRON for Brees and McClain. Then tonight, flipped McClain and Mark Clayton for Andre Johnson. I'd say that was pretty solid.
