I have Martin, Foster, and Wayne on my roster. I probably should but I'm trying hard not to panic. I'm hoping for the best with Foster but obviously need to make a few waiver wire pickups. I'm in a PPR league and we bid on players we want to pickup

Luck, Eli, Foster, Martin, F. Jackson, McGahee, Wayne, Cruz, D. Moore, Douglas, and Shorts are my current roster

On the waiver wire for rb are Randle, Hillis, Helu, Ivory, Tolbert. Looking for the two best for the long haul- maybe Ivory and Hillis??

Also, for wr Harvin, Floyd, and Wright are all out there. Time to grab Harvin? Who are the best two?

I would grab Ivory right away. Easily the most talented RB on the Jets. Helu. He had a great performance on Sunday but Shanhan is insane and just might bench him.

I think I would take Hillis since he will get the goal line touches and is a weapon as a receiver. He will give you short term relief at least.

Grab Wright. You need releif now. He has put up great PPR numbers the last two weeks and Locker is back. Harvin might not have a decent game for a few weeks and that might hurt you more short term

Ivory and Helu are the rb's in that order for me.

Can't see Hillis having much of a fantasy impact. Last night may be his 2013 highlight and if he had played anyone but MN, you most likley would not even have him on your list. Brown is returning as is Jacobs, so that will really be an ugly RBBC before it is over.

Helu has the most upside, but you can get the full Shanny treatment. Ivoy had a great game last week and put up less than 10 points, so even though I listed him first, I prefer the upside and would make Helu my first choice. He has a much greater upside and only a slightly less floor.

Wright and Floyd are pretty equal to me, both will get 5-6 catches and 50-60 yards a week. Harvin has a great upside and is worth the gamble. I would take Floyd over Wright and stash Harvin, due to Fitz's hammy issues.
