Current Roster:

QBs - Schaub, Freeman, Hasselbeck

RBs - Arian Foster, Sproles, Reggie Bush, William Powell

WRs - Fitz, Percy Harvin, James Jones, Hartline, Garcon.

TEs - Gates, Rudolph

K - Greg the Leg

DEF - Dolphins, Packers

PPR League

Starts 2 QBs, 3 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 W/RB, 1 K, 1 DEF.

Freeman and Schaub have each only have had one real good game, otherwise they were average at best. Hasselbeck probably has 1 maybe 2 more games left max. Anybody think that Skelton, Locker, or Wilson are worth picking up on the wire?

My personal opinion is...

Skelton - He has Fitz to throw to and put up some decent numbers last year. Good D in Zona so maybe not to much come from behind games, mostly close games. No RBs in Zona either so defenses might just make them beat them on the ground and take away Fitz.

Wilson - I'm a Seahawk fan and had high hopes. This last game I think was a fluke against a shoddy Pats pass defense. It's a Lynch based offense with Wilson getting yards mostly off the play action. Defense will keep them in it which means it keep Lynch rolling most times. I think he has potential but Bevell's play calling is "safe" at best, unless Seattle gets way behind, which isn't likely with their D.

Locker - This is who I think is my best bet to unseat Schaub or Freeman on certain matchups. Provided he don't dislocate his shoulder for a third time. He's put up better numbers that Schaub and Freeman when he's played this year (on average). He hasn't played yet with Britt back so his numbers I would expect to improve. Plus he gets some points on the ground and the Titans look to be playing from behind most games.

Will probably drop Hasselbeck for whoever is best. Thoughts my fellow fantasy fanatics?

By the way, TA says Locker is the best "trade" for Hasselbeck. Only this week would be a negative.

You have Schaub and Freeman need to make a move, especially for a guy like Skelton. The Cards' offense is horrible...worst O-line and running game in the NFL, you don't want a piece of that. Wilsonor Locker...ehhh only if you think one of them is better than Freeman. On a related note, drop Powell...maybe you can look for a solid handcuff or something. I'd drop Hasselbeck for WR only have 2 consistent/reliable WRs with Garcon's injury woes.
