But for now, here are some waiver wire options that you might want to take a look at before your league counterparts can beat you to the punch.
Each and every year there are a few guys that lay around on the waiver wire for a few weeks before exploding onto the scene and becoming fantasy legends like Ryan Grant from a year ago.
It's important you keep evaluating your talent each week and don't be afraid to drop someone on your roster that has been getting by on name recognition alone.
Again we're going to ANSWER EVERY QUESTION we get and post them on Friday.

From trade advice to roster advice, we'll help you out.
Tyler Thigpen Chiefs, QB - I've seen enough. I'm officially a believer in Tyler Thigpen.
I have no idea how this happened or why it's happened. But the Chiefs look they may have finally found the heir apparent to Damon Huard in Thigpen and are playing as good as they have all season because of it.
He's been scorching hot as of late, most notably this past weekend against the Chargers where he tossed three touchdowns to go along with 266 yds. Thigpen has yet to turn the ball over and has looked confident under center.
A nice matchup awaits those of you who take a chance on Thigpen. The Saints will come marching in Sunday, with their horrendous pass defense in tow.
Shaun Alexander Redskins, RB - Where am I?
What year is this?
This isn't the fantasy factor flashback edition and you may seriously want to toy with the notion of picking Alexander up this weekend. Mid-season MVP candidate Clinton Portis is looking doubtful for Sunday's tilt against the Cowboys and head coach Jim Zorn indicated backup Ladell Betts is highly unlikely to suit up.
Leaving the old man Alexander.
The Dallas defense definitely leaves something to be desired and Alexander has a fresh set of legs that once carried him to setting the league record for touchdowns in a season.
It's a very interesting proposition that I think any owner in need of a back should consider heading into Week 11.
Carnell 'Cadillac' Williams Bucs, RB - You may remember that gruesome knee injury that Cadillac had last year. It was one of those plays that made you sick to your stomach before you even realized what really happened.
After spending the entire year up until this point on the PUP, Cadillac sounds as if he's ready to roll and it couldn't come at a better time for the Bucs.
Starter Earnest Graham may or may not play this weekend after suffering a knee injury in Week 9. And Warrick Dunn is still iffy with a bad neck.
According to the Associated Press, head coach Jon Gruden had this to say after practice yesterday:
"I've said for a long time, it's almost like Christmas is here. Christmas is Wednesday, I hope. We'll see how [Cadillac] feels, talk to the trainer and medical people. If my eyes don't deceive me, I think he's got a chance to be a player this year for our team."
Keep your ear to the ground regarding this situation but this could be the best late pickup you're going to find in 2008.
Mark Bradley Chiefs, WR - This is the second week in a row that Bradley has been apart of this column, but I think it's more than warranted.
Side note: I would love to know the whole story about how the Bears and Bradley saga went down over at Halas Hall. Remember, when the Bears lost Berrian, Bradley was tagged the team's new go-to-guy of the wide receiving corps.
Fast forward not even six months later and he's gone.
And playing amazingly well for the Kansas City Chiefs. He's scored a touchdown in one form or another in three straight games and last week caught a game high nine passes for 81 yds.
I've always loved his potential and it's finally starting to show out in K.C.
Michael Jenkins Falcons, WR - Remember how everyone used to believe that the wide receiver the Falcons drafted were busts after they failed to meet expectations while Michael Vick was running the show?
It's amazing how quickly things can change with a good quarterback. Jenkins has finally developed chemistry with rookie wonder Matt Ryan and fantasy owners like yourself should stand up and take notice.
Jenkins notched a pair of scored in Week 9 against the Raiders and in the past four games has failed to record anything less than 50 yds receiving.
Solid pickup just when you needed it most.
Dustin Keller Jets, TE - Rarely do I ever waste my breath mentioning the TE position in this column. I'm of the belief that they're a dime a dozen and there's not much separating the best from the rest.
That being said, this year is starting to wear on that belief because of guys like Dustin Keller.
If there's one thing we can take away from Brett Favre's past in Green Bay is that he loves to use the TE. It's his safety blanket and after last week's 107 yd, TD performance, Favre may look his way quite frequently down the stretch.
Then again, he's a TE. So don't hope for too much.
Kevin Boss Giants, TE - How ridiculous is it that now I have two TE's on this list?
I'm seriously considering going for a mental checkup this week.
Either way, Boss has entrenched himself as the starting TE on this impressive Giants team now that Super Bowl hero David Tyree is gone.
Boss has scored a TD in three straight games and in reality is the more professional version of Jeremy Shockey with better hands.
