This is my 12 man league. My team looks like this as of this morning due to the Shockey injury..I'm 3-0
QB: Tony Romo, Kurt Warner
RB: Gore, W. Parker, Mendenhall, Tim Hightower
WR: S. Smith, Cotchery, DeSean Jackson, Anthony Gonzales
TE: Shockey, Fasano, J. Stevens
Picked up Fasano(Bye) dropped DeAngelo Williams
Picked up Jeremy Stevens dropped Deion Branch.
Here is my dilemma. There are some FAs out there I'd like to nab and stash. I definitely will not keep 3 TEs..2 max, 1 minimum but Fasano, who I want is on bye so I needed Stevens.
One guy just dropped Laurence Maroney...wouldn't pick him up There is also Pierre Thomas out there who is a TD machine these days but wopuld only be used for byes They would help me, with Hightower, fill in some byes with Gore and the Steeler twins.
At WR there is both Deion Branch, whom I dropped and Bobby Engram. Both will be back in week 5 and can give me more depth at a depth heavy position..trade bait maybe too.
I'm 3-0 so always at the bottom of waivers so I like premaking moves in the waiver free zone.
Would you drop Shockey to make one of these moves since he is out 3-6 thinking Fasano or Stevens could fill in for 6 weeks and do well for the playoffs if that happens?
