Standard Yahoo League. We start 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF

MJD is hurt and Rashad Jennings is available on wiavers, so I need to grab him, but need to make a roster spot.

I also have a Bye week for my TE (so either need to drop Daniels or make a second slot). Best Week 8 TE avialable is probably Keller.

To make one slot, I'm assuming I drop DeAngelo Williams.

To make 2 slots I have to either not handcuff MJD and just let it ride with Bush and McGahee. Or I have to drop James Jones or Dez Bryant.

So do I:

1. Pass on Rashad Jennings. Drop williams. Grab a 2nd TE for a week.

2. Pass on Jennings. Keep Williams. Drop Owen Daniels, and grab Keller.

3. Grab Jennigs, Drop Williams. Drop Owen Daniels, and grab Keller.

4. Grab Jennings and Keller (keep Daniels). Drop Williams and either Jones or Bryant?

Thanks for any advice!


Current lineup is:

QB Rodgers, Aaron

RB: McGahee, Willis; Bush, Reggie; Jones-Drew, Maurice Williams DeAngelo

WR: Jackson, Vincent; Maclin, Jeremy; Jones, James; Bryant, Dez

TE: Daniels, Owen

When is you waivers processed? Because things may clear up when more info comes out about MJD this week. If its something bad you may be able to drop him.

First though I would not be dropping Owen Daniels, the guy is having a monster year and is basically the #1 WR on the Texans and top 5 TE this year.

Sucks you have to make space. I think you have to take the hit. Drop Williams, Drop a WR. Probably Jones. Pickup Jennings and Keller. Once the bye week is over see what WR's you can pick back up. Packers have a bye week 10, so someone might not even pick him up, also there is a good chance Greg Jennings will be back after week 10 which brings downs his value anyway.
