Here is some advice on working the waiver wire in your fantasy league (for personal advice email larry at larrybrownsports.com):
Matchups to Avoid (at your discretion): Steelers defense, Ravens defense, Giants pass defense, Chargers pass defense.
Matchups to Exploit (at your discretion): Houston, Buffalo, Jacksonville, and New England’s secondary. Buffalo, Arizona, Tampa Bay, Detroit, Denver, and Indy’s run defense. Start a defense playing Carolina, Arizona, Cleveland, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Hopefully you acted last week to pick up some of the players we recommended because you’ll have a lot of competition working the waiver wire this week. Here are some players to keep in mind when you submit your claims:
LeGarrette Blount, RB, Bucs – He was one of our players to watch last week and blew up with two touchdowns and over 100 yards. He’s no secret anymore so just make sure he’s on your team instead of one of your rivals.
Mike Hart, RB, Colts – Hopefully you listened to us when we told you he was a must-have last week. He looked really good on Monday night running for 84 yards. He’s a nice fill-in while Joseph Addai is out.
Jacob Tamme, TE, Colts – Like Hart, we recommended Tamme last week and hope you picked him up. He dropped a pass early but picked it up with six catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. He can keep it up.
Paul Posluszny, LB, Bills – Someone may have dropped him after their bye two weeks ago. Whether Buffalo plays a 3-4 or 4-3 defense doesn’t matter — Posluszny racks up the tackles.
Desmond Bishop, LB, Packers – He’s had double-digit tackle totals each week since gaining the starting job because of injury. As we saw against the Vikings, he’s also good in coverage.
*Make sure they’re not still available: Matthew Stafford, BenJarvus Green-Ellis
