IDP Week 15 NFL Fantasy Football 2010 Waiver Wire Pick Ups

DBs

CB Cortland Finnegan TEN again! He had a great game week 14 and will do it again vs. Houston where he and Andre Johnson will literally be fighting it out all game. (hopefully not ejected this time) and Michael Griffin (who really isn't a waiver wire guy, but he he's on your, he should be played vs. Houston.

SS Abram Elam CLE vs. Cincinatti is a definite start. Get him in there in this matchup.

SS R. Doughty WAS helped me a ton week 14. If Laron Landry is still injured, Doughty moves to the top of this list vs. Dallas. I think Landry will play though so Doughty can't be used if that happens.

SS Craig Dahl STL did an awesome job on my team with 9 solos and an INT week 14.  He won't have as big of a game KC, but he will still be solid as long as Matt Cassel is back at the helm. (which he should be)

CB Devin McCourty NE faces Green Bay who will be throwing a ton in this matchup and I'm guessing they'll be targeting McCourty



LBs

LB Takeo Spikes SF - OK, I admit when I'm wrong. I said to hold off on Spikes and he had a huge game again with 9 tackles, an INT and 2 pass deflections. Now he gets San Diego and I like it. He's the highest waiver wire pick up this week.

LB DeAndre Levy DET is probably not on your wire, but if he is, he's the top of this list vs. TB week 15.

LB Bradie James DAL is also not a waiver wire guy, but it's amazing to see who gets dropped during playoff time. He will have a solid game vs. the Redkins week 15.

LB Quincy Black TB is your next guy you want.  Detroit is actually very good for LBs and Black has been on fire. He's a solid LB to plug in.

LB Paris Lenon ARI had a slow week, but that was expected. He gets Carolina's run team next and should be started.

LB Bart Scott NYJ had 9 total tackles vs. Miami's run game and the Steelers should be similar plus the good possibility of a sack.

LB Calvin Pace NYJ is guaranteed a sack against Big Ben. That may be all he gets, but it's something to be aware of.



DEs

DE Jared Allen MIN is not a waiver wire guy, but don't forget to start him against Cutler & the Bears next week.

DE Charles Johnson CAR continued his sack streak and you can feel very good about starting him agains Arizona week 15.

Continue to start any and all potential sackers vs. Pittsburgh. Ben was sacked 4 times, which is approximately his average per week. He got sacked by an LB, DE, SS & DT so he's an equal opportunity guy to sack.

The Jets play Big Ben next.

DT Pouha NYJ had 10 total tackles and a sack and a fumble recovery week 14.

DE Ellis NYJ is worth a start vs. Big Ben as well.

Hi Monk. It's officially crunch time. So here's the IDP lineup:

Mayo
Bishop
Anderson
Spikes
Elam
Whitner

I need 1 LB, 1 DB, and 2 D for the lineup. Suggestions?

Ryan said...

Landry is on the IR now. I can pick up Doughty and play him over either Bell, Whitner, Tulloch, or Pollard. Would any of those be a good move to make for weeks 15/16? Bell has been a little inconsistent lately. Thoughts?

Anonymous said...

ok Monk need big help for the final 4 week 15 playoff run this week need to start 2 at each position.

DL mario williams,matt shaugnessy,aytha rubin

DB TJ Ward,Whitner,Chung,Widdle

LB Poz,Dhani Jones(been hot lately),Rudd,derrick Johnson,Bishop

thanks for your help this year hope you have some good analyzing going this week!

J said...

Monk,

1 pt tackles, 1/2 pt assists, 3 point picks and sacks. Week 15 and 16 playoffs.

Should I drop Farrior, Beason or R. Lewis for Dhani Jones or Takeo Spikes?

Also, Whitner looks like hes struggling. Should I drop for Eric Berry or Kerry Rhodes?

Thanks for the help,

J

Tom said...

Hey Monk,

Drop Whitner for Doughty? Would you take Doughty over Abram Elam, Kerry Rhodes, Dawan Landry or Eric Berry?

Kenyon Coleman or Matt Shaughnessy over Trent Cole? 3 points a sack, 1 per tackle, 3 per INT.

Michael Monk said...

@RJ

Mayo
Bishop
Anderson
Spikes
Elam
Whitner

Love Mayo no matter what
Next I'd go Whitner for DB and then Elam & Bishop for your other two D spots.

Playoffs are no time to get cute so even though Spikes has had 2 good games, you know the other guys will produce. I hate Anderson's matchup vs. Arizona. Arizona is so unpredictable and terrible vs. linebackers.

@ Ryan

Question: Landry is on the IR now. I can pick up Doughty and play him over either Bell, Whitner, Tulloch, or Pollard. Would any of those be a good move to make for weeks 15/16? Bell has been a little inconsistent lately. Thoughts?

Answer: Yes, over Bell in both weeks. Tullock has put up some montster games and is a must start, Pollard is playing really hard again, Whitner is extremely solid and a must start, but I would go Doughty over Bell.ok Monk need big help for the final 4 week 15 playoff run this week need to start 2 at each position. I have been and will continue to go Doughty over Lance Briggs.

Question: DL mario williams,matt shaugnessy,aytha rubin
Answer: like aytha rubin best then shaugnessy then williams

Question: DB TJ Ward,Whitner,Chung,Widdle
Answer: like Whitner best, then Chung, Ward & Weddle (he's so unpredictable)

Question: LB Poz,Dhani Jones(been hot lately),Rudd,derrick Johnson,Bishop
Answer: like Poz then Dhani, then D. Johnson, Bishop and Rudd

You should come out the otherside well with this guys.

Queston

For DB, should I go with Tyvonn Branch, Finnigan or DeAngelo Hall

Answer:
I like D Hall vs. Dallas. Extra motivation because of rivalry matchup and they should target Miles Austin a lot, who he'll be covering often.

Michael Monk said...

@ G
I like Dhani Jones vs. Cleveland better than all those guys.








Question:
I really need your help on the line-up this week.

Tk 1, Ass tk 1, sack 2, int 2 + 1 pt/10 interception yards. I have included the best from the waiver-wire as well.

LB (Pick 3):
Laurinaitis, D.Johnson, D.Levy, C.Wake, T.Hali or B.Cushing

Answer: Your first 3 you have listed above are the ones you want to start

DB (Pick 3):
G.Quin, Sensabaugh, Y.Bell, C.Dahl, C.Munnerly, Doughty or D.Whitner.

Answer: I trust Whitner, Dahl & Doughty more than the other guys listed

DL (Pick 3):
T.Cole, J.Allen, C.Dunlap, C.Cole, W.Hayes or M.Patterson.

Answer: Cole, Allen & Dunlap for a flyer (but that can be a gut call for you as well. it truly is just a guess for your 3rd DL. Honestly, I let my 7 year old daughter select my DL picks that I'm not sure about and she does pretty well. With Cole & Allen on your side this week, you can afford to take an risk reward guy for your DL and that might be Patterson from that list, but who knows. Don't lose any sleep over your 3rd DL)

Should I drop Farrior, Beason or R. Lewis for Dhani Jones or Takeo Spikes?

Answer:
Yes, I'd go Dhani Jones over Farrior this week

Question:

Drop Whitner for Doughty? Would you take Doughty over Abram Elam, Kerry Rhodes, Dawan Landry or Eric Berry?

Answer:
No, I like Elam best this week & stick with Whitner

Kenyon Coleman or Matt Shaughnessy over Trent Cole? 3 points a sack, 1 per tackle, 3 per INT.

Answer: No, you have to go Trent Cole. He's just too good and he's the one who got you here. It's a crucial time for the Eagles and he'll play hard.

Answer:
I like D. Hall & Grimes, but McCourty is extremely tempting but he's hurt and Aaron Rodgers may be out and I think GB might have a lot of 3 and outs.

Answer:
Thanks for that info. I write this late Sunday night so I admit I don't always have all the news. That makes Hayes more enticing though.

Thanks for another year of great picks. I was wondering for this week should i go with reed doughty or craig dahl. And is desmond bishop a good play this week or should i go with calvin pace. Please help

Anonymous said...

Which 2 DB's? Reed, Berry or Dahl?
Seymour or calais campbell at DL? thanks Monk Man

Adil said...

Monk,
Out of the following players, which 3 would you start this week?

Paul Posluszny
Desmond Bishop
Brian Cushing
James Harrison
Donte Whitner

Thanks

Your Question:

Answer: Dahl over Doughty, but it's really close. I'm a Redskins guy so I had to go with him vs. the Cowboys, but Dahl has been putting up huge numbers too and it should continue this week. They are basically the same guy, but Dahl is my pick by a couple points.

Bishop over Calvin Pace because if Pace doesnt get you that sack, he won't make it up in tackles for you.

Question

Which 2 DB's? Reed, Berry or Dahl?
Seymour or calais campbell at DL? thanks Monk Man

Answer for me is Berry & Dahl. I think the Raven you want is Dawan Landry and not Ed Reed and then I would choose Landry over Berry. So it wold be Landry & Dahl, but if you don't have that choice then Dahl & Berry. If you mean Reed Daughty then yes, Reed Daughty & Dahl together.

I have to get real with you on choosing one of those two DLs. YUCK! Do you seriously have not other options but seymour or campbell. Unless you are completely locked in, I would much rather have Pouha or Pierre-Paul or Kyle Williams or Charles Johnson or Chris Clemons or Lamar Houston or Kevin Vickorson or Rubin or Mincey or Cofield or Dunlap or anyone facing the Bears or Steelers or Redskins this week. I guess it would Campbell if your making me choose, but I like all the guys above better this week in the order in which I listed them and of course the guys I listed on my post this week. You must be in a super deep league and it must be expensive to hit the waiver wire, but if you can upgrade in any way for your playoff matchup, do it! Jared Allen & John Abraham are my personal favorites this week, but Pouha or Ray Edwards have just as much opportunity at more of a "buy low" option.

@Mightygunja Adil

Your question:
Out of the following players, which 3 would you start this week?

Paul Posluszny
Desmond Bishop
Brian Cushing
James Harrison
Donte Whitner

For this week, Whitner is my guess for your highest scorer off that list. You can never bench Poz because he's the rock of any team. I feel the same way about Harrison and he'll be super amped for the Jets matchup.

I feel pretty good about both Bishop and Cushing, but not near as good as I feel about your starting 3 Whitner, Poz & Harrison. That's a nice solid playoff winning team there. The all get solid tackles and any of them could get a big play like a INT for TD, an INT, a sack, pass deflections or fumble recoveries.
