What are some good rookie waiver-wire pickups??

Postby Virinder » Mon Oct 08, 2012 7:16 pm

In general, who might be on waivers in most leagues that I should pickup?? For example, we have Coby Fleener, Kirk Cousins, and Josh Gorson....are there any other guys who might be under 50% owned in ESPN/CBSSports/Yahoo! leagues?? Who's the best of the above three too??

That's a pretty broad scope. As much as I'd like to help, I don't think I'd be able to do you justice. Sounds like a post in and of itself. I like T.Y. Hilton for what it's worth and I'm pretty sure his ownership is low.

What about Fleener or Dwayne Allen?? Hilton is already owned in my league....but I just picked up Fleener off waivers and Dwayne Allen is available.

Maybe I should trade for Hilton....thoughts??

Just my opinion, i would go with Allen, i think he is more talented that Fleener. But that's just me.

Vick Ballard is the starter in Indy with injury to Brown. He's worth a flier.

Kendall Wright? (13% ESPN)

For other rookies: I like Bryce Brown (<1% ESPN) as a handcuff with huge upside, but he's unplayable unless something happens to McCoy.
