Default Help..need advice.

I am in a FF league that gives 6 pts per Rush TD, 1 pt for every 20 yds rushing/receiving, and 1 pt every 2 recepts.

My current RBs are:

Marion Barber
Ryan Grant
Mendenhall
Glen Coffee
Tim Hightower

Someone just released Willie Parker. I have the #2 waiver position. Should I use my #2 waiver position to drop Coffee (who's expendable with Gore coming back) and pick up Parker which would assure me of the Steelers' starter since I would have him & Mendenhall?

that part is no brainer...should I use my #2 waiver position to do it? I doubt Parker will clear waivers.

I actually would not do it.....not till after this week anyway Coffee is suppose to have a decent week against Atlanta who is in the top 10 in giving up fantasy points to running backs.....and face it parker isnt going to produce very much even when hes healthy ( and he might not play this week).....i would keep coffee for now and use him this week

unless you got some magical crystal ball that you see some big time starter come out of the woodwork in the future, i dont think waiver order will mean much more than this. i would get him if i were you.

Willie Parker has been a fantasy liability for a couple of years now. Don't wast your waiver on him. Plus, Gore is always injured and IMO San Fran will use Coffee more to help Gore.

with parker, you are guarenteed 2 starters in grant and parker/mendy.
grant-no one even close to taking his job
hightower - passsing team and beanie lurking to break out
coffee - this is gores team
barber- inujry prone and have 2 other good rb's that will share carries.

its all opinions though man. go with your gut.
