September 20, 2011 at 11:55 am Leave a comment

The picture has become clearer, both with the players on your team and the wire.  If you missed on Week 1 Pickups, here’s a list of guys who will be valuable to your team in the future either in the short-term or long-run.  Availability in parenthesis via ESPN.

Wide Receiver

  • Denarius Moore (99.7%): Broke-out in first start. Shouldn’t see bench soon.
  • Mike Sims-Walker (68.7%): Most targeted Ram up to speed.
  • Jerome Simpson (50.5%): Friendly schedule continues.
  • Eric Decker (93.4%): Looked like Ed Mc. WR2 when Lloyd returns?
  • Jabar Gaffney (90.4%): Second WR with old QB.
  • Greg Little (97.6%): Only a matter of time until #1.
Repeats: Burleson (49.8%), David Nelson (98.6%)

Running Back

  • Dexter McCluster (79.3%):  Standouts because of his explosiveness and more importantly WR eligible in ESPN and Yahoo! leagues. 
  • Thomas Jones, LeRon McClain: Looking like a committee.
  • Tashard Choice (98.1%): Could get his chance soon with Felix hurting.
  • Roy Helu (89.4%): Got 10 carries for 74 yards on Sunday.
  • Issac Redman: Making most of opps and desperation play vs Indy if necessary.
Repeats: Ben Tate, Cadilliac Williams


  • Matt Hasselbeck (90.7%): Solid rapport with Britt and Washington.
  • Mike Kakfa (100%): Nice speculative add and possible plug-and-play.
Repeats: Fitz (29%), Orton (59%), Grossman (73.4%)


  • Cardinals (98.6%)
  • Panthers (45%)
  • Dolphins (92.6%)
Repeat: Lions (30.2%)
