My top 3 receivers (Dez, VJax, Miles) all have byes this week. My only other receivers currently are Sidney Rice and Ramses Barden. Yuck.

I have the top waiver wire pick, but I'm not sure if I should "waste" it on either James Jones (vs Ind) or Domenik Hixon (vs Cle).

Would you use the top ww pick for a spot start? Would you choose Jones or Hixon this week? PPR League

Both are good. You can make a good case with either. I like Hixon, Haden is out for one more game.

Since Jennings is out for sure and may be out for several weeks, Jones would be my choice. I like Hixon slightly better this week IF Nicks is out, if Nicks plays, Jones would be my choice. As far as using your number 1 pick, it appears that you don't have a choice unless you want to wade thru the FA's after the ww process and gamble on getting something from what is left. That is another reason to go Jones, since he will be useful longer.
