Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em Week 3

Sep 22, 2008

There were some unusual heroes on Sunday.  There always are.  Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.

QB
Brian Griese -  Bob’s kid had an outstanding game vs. Chicago.  If he can surpass 400 yard vs. their D, he’s worthy of snatching up off the waiver wire.  This will probably be his best game of the year, but he should be able to put up some decent weeks.
Ruling:  Get ‘em

Trent Edwards – The Bills are 3-0 and a major reason why.  Of course it helps having a great running game and a great D.  Edwards threw for 279 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT.  He’s not going to have may big games, but he could be a decent spot starter with the bye weeks coming on.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

RBs

Rudi Johnson – If he happened to go in the waiver pool when he was cut, then go get him.  He ran for 83 yards and added 48 receiving yards and a score.  You know his track record.  He needs to be owned.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Correll Buckhalter – If you own Westbrook or want to stick it to Westbrook owners, Buckhalter is your guy.  He tallied 87 yards and a score replacing Westy.  The Eagles proved they could win without him so there is no need to rush him back.
Ruling: Get ‘em.

WRs
Antonio Bryant – Bryant had a huge game and showed he was Griese’s favorite target.  Just like Griese should be gobbled up, his main weapon should too.
Ruling: Get ‘em.

Brandon Lloyd - Lloyd had a great game, but to me it seems more like a fluke performance rather than a glimpse of what he’ll do in future weeks.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.

TE
Visanthe Shiancoe - He scored a TD and had 38 yards.  That makes for a decent 9.8 fantasy score.  However, I need to see more from him after his history of drops and low production.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

There you have it.  I hope I provided you some good info while you make your fantasy team waiver wire adjustments.
