Start or Sit - Week 9

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

Like I tell you every week, you probably won't find your stud players on this list. Guys like Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson and Larry Fitzgerald should always be started, regardless of who they're playing so it's a waste of time to even mention them.

If you have any questions about your lineup, send me an email at

and between Ricky and myself, we'll do the best we can to help you out.

Otherwise, good luck this weekend.

Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 9

| | Comments (4) | TrackBacks (0)

By now you should have a pretty good idea if your team will be in the running this season. Barring freak injuries or suspensions, your roster will remain the same as you just tinker with it to make it as strong as possible.

Each week new options are popping up and strengthening your bench for the future is most certainly a priority you should be focusing on.

To help you do so, 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.

If you have any questions about your lineup, trade advice or anything else, send me an email at
