This will be the final edition of “Sleeper Math” for this season but it’ll be back next year. For the remainder of the season we’re going to focus on matchups for the playoffs, Keepers, and setting the table for the offseason. Here at Razzball we’ll be active all the year leading up to next year’s draft. Speaking of next year’s draft we’re going to have free draft guides that will blow you away. Why, you ask? I guess you’ll just have to wait until August 2010 to find out! I do want to thank all of our readers because without you there’d be no website. We hope that we’ve been able to help you be more competitive in your league and assure you that next season we’ll be back even stronger!
If you’re reading this chances are you’re in the finals of your league. If you’re in the finals chances are your team is fairly stacked and you don’t need a lot of help. But as I preached last week I think it’s important to finish strong and roster the best team possible because you never know. In addition by snagging players off the wire you’re taking them away from your opponent.
The other group of active owners is people in Keeper leagues. In some leagues you have to declare your Keepers at the end of this season. In others you declare before the draft next year. Either way you should be looking to bolster your roster with as many young studs as possible to give you more options and your opponents fewer.
And while you’re here make sure you enter our contest!
Worth a Waiver Claim
Jerome Harrison – for obvious reasons…
Maurice Morris – He’s getting the bulk of the carries. Opportunities equal production or something like that.
Darren McFadden – in PPR you should take a look at him. McFadden’s had several productive weeks in row, particularly in the passing game.
Ryan Moats – There’s no telling what crazy man Gary Kubiak has in store for Fantasy owners this week. Arian Foster got benched after fumbling and Ryan Moats got the most carries with 13. Would I play him in Week 16? Probably not but you have to put a claim on him regardless.
Michael Bush – Justin Fargas suffered a knee injury (the extent of which we’re not really sure right now) and Bush took over, gaining 144 yards. It’s unknown at this point whether Fargas will play in week 16 but the Raiders will be facing the Browns; that’s reason enough to put a claim in on him.
Jeremy Maclin – He was dropped in a lot of leagues due to the injury and missing Sunday’s game. Definitely worth adding to your roster in case you need another starter.
Worth Grabbing in Free Agency (after Waivers clears)
Josh Morgan – This early season bust has benefited from the improved San Francisco passing game. He put together seven catches this week (one for a touchdown). You might have more useless junk on your roster than him.
Chris Brown – As I mentioned above we’re not really sure what the end game will be in the backfield in Houston. More than likely you’ll want to avoid the situation at all costs.
Kenneth Darby – The Swine Flu wreaked havoc on the Rams this week, including SJax but he still played. Like all the players in this group you’re not expecting production unless there’s an injury at the top of the depth chart.
Aaron Brown – Maurice Morris played well (as expected) and should be in no danger of losing his job. If there is some sort of an injury, however, the speedy Aaron Brown could step in and be productive.
Tyrell Sutton – DeAngelo Williams left Sunday’s game with an injury. Sutton’s probably completely irrelevant for this year but he’s worth stashing if you have room in leagues where you don’t have to declare Keepers until next season.
