I’m doing a trade that leaves my roster with two open slots and all of these guys are on the waiver wire. I’m thin at WR so I’m definitely going to get either Branch or Gage, but I need one more person. I have strong enough depth at RB where Jackson and Sproles are not necessary, but they could have great trade value later on. Here’s my RB/WRs
Addai, Thomas Jones, Chris Johnson, Chris Perry
Brandon Marshall, Jerricho Cotcherry, Roddy White
So which two of these four would you pick up off the waiver wire? Branch could return as soon as this week, and in the games he played with Seattle last year, he did very well.
I would get Darren Sproles for sure, as you stated his trade value may be very high, and if LT continues to have this toe problem, he could be on the field a lot. For the WRs you listed, neither strikes me as a great prospect. Id look at James Hardy of the Bills if he is out there, he had a TD last week, and he is a huge red zone target at 6’5.
