Preseason Pickup Sleepers

Postby john » Wed Aug 25, 2010 1:26 am

My league drops all players to waivers on the 12th and we have $100 waiver salary, but preseason is free to pick up and drop...Soooo since Larry Johnson is not looking too great and its questionable that he even makes the 53 man roster, I'm looking to upgrade.

There isn't much left in terms of RBs (Snelling, B. Jackson, White, and Buckhalter to name a few) but WR has a few guys I'm looking at. Louis Murphy and Mike Thomas both look to be moving up. Murphy is about to be the #2 man in Oakland since Schilens had knee surgery. Thomas has been impressive so far and might be becoming a red zone target for Garrard.

Jericho Cotchery is also available and he do what he do.

Anyways, what does everyone think about these guys? Should I dump Larry (or any of my other bench players for that matter) for one of them?

Is this a PPR league?


If so, I would consider a WR over Johnson for sure.

Yeah, the news hasn't been good for Larry. Those guys you mentioned are pretty close. I like Murphy's upside a little more than the rest.
Johnny Ringo: All right, 'lunger'. Let's do it.
Doc Holliday: Say when.
