Thought I would get this week’s thread started now that the trade deadline has passed. How would you rank the following wr’s widely available on waivers rest of schedule?

I would like to add an RB perspective, how would you rank?

@FF_Contrarian you’ve been touting Moore all season. I’d love to hear your answer to the above question as I’m considering spending 25% of my FAAB for Moore even though I don’t really have room for him currently. Really like him ROS and don’t want a contender to get him

I think Jameis being benched gives Godwin a boost as some of the targets that were going to Humphries and the TE will probably be directed toward WR. Disappointing that DJax didn't get traded (he seemed a logical replacement for Will Fuller).
Sutton becomes a WR2 (and Tim Patrick may be a dynasty stash). I don't know what to think of Parker. I'm gonna let someone else have him.
DJ Moore probably has the most upside and the easiest path to a WR1 role (Funchess and Olsen are less imposing than Emmanuel Sanders or the TB guys plus he was a 1st round pick).
MVS is in a situation similar to Godwin in that he's in a high octane passing offense but with lots of target competition (although he seemed more involved last week than Geronimo Allison). MVS's QB and coaching situation is more settled than Godwin's.
Tre'Quan is the clear WR2 by snaps and targets, but the passing volume of the Saints' offense has evaporated recently (the NO defensive TD vs Minnesota took the air out of the ball). But they have several remaining games at home that I expect to be high scoring affairs with more passing (Rams, Eagles, Falcons, Steelers).
If I had to rank them, I'd probably have Moore and Sutton in tier 1 (Sutton higher floor, Moore higher ceiling), Godwin and MVS in tier 2 (I prefer Godwin as he's been involved all season), and Tre'Quan in tier 3. Not sure where to put Parker. Probably tier 2ish. I'd also probably add David Moore to tier 2. Not a ton of volume in the passing offense but he's getting high value targets and Baldwin may not be healthy all year long.
For RBs, Aaron Jones is the clear #1 for me, Richard in PPR is #2, Royce and Ty Mo #3, and Booker last (I wish they'd give his touches to Lindsay or Freeman).

Morning all. I wanted to see if anyone had a view on the Jets RB situation ROS. Full PPR, start 2 RBs + 2 flex. I have Cannon, but am considering picking up Elijah McGuire instead. I just added Ito Smith to a ZeroRB-type roster with Chubb, Sony, Dalvin & Thompson. I feel in good shape at RB, if my guys could ever all get healthy.
As noted in @DumpsterDiveFF excellent weekly piece, The Buy Low Machine loves the Jets' upcoming schedule, but unsure about chasing production on a mediocre offense.

1) Glad you like Dumpster Dives!
2) If you need a guy now, stick with Cannon until week 10. If not I would consider stashing McGuire because I do think he is the better talent.
But I am with you, if I don't need to rely on the Jets backfield, then I would rather not. That being said, Cannon might be a trade chip if someone in your league needs a RB.

Really like the analysis from @mateoloco.
I would probably go:
Moore looks like the No. 1 in Carolina. I expect inconsistency in that type of passing offense - he's a rookie and the ball should be spread around - but his upside is significant. Agree with @FantasyNerd that he's an important pickup to block the other strong teams in your league.
Sutton could be opened up for the most volume of the group now.
Godwin, MVS, and Tre'Quan all have a ton of upside but are difficult weekly plays with their volume issues. I like Godwin a lot more again now that he has Fitzpatrick back, at least for this week. In leagues where MVS and Tre'Quan are available, they're also important adds because they have weekly blowup potential with Rodgers and Brees. I expect them both to continue to take market share and create big plays, putting them on the borderline of startability (but potentially remaining tricky starts until 2019).
Parker is Parker. I hope for him that he turns it around, but it's difficult to buy a poor receiver in a bad passing offense. (If you need help, however, I definitely wouldn't avoid him.)
At RB it's Jones and then it comes down to your needs. If you're targeting playoff upside, I'd go with Montgomery and Freeman. Both of those guys could emerge as big forces a month from now. If you need help through the byes, I'd target Richard and then Booker. Both players have a lot of garbage time upside for bye-week fill-ins.

@DumpsterDiveFF defo a fan of DD piece- really like finding hidden gems that half my league don't even bid on. Cannon a good example last wk. At the moment I'll hang onto Cannn. Not least because depending in Cook and Sony's health I may need to start him over next few wks.
#10 By: Matt Poliziani, October 31st, 2018 16:12
Thanks for the advice,
I presently have Njoku and Hooper at TE, someone dropped Doyle to make room for the bye. Would you drop Hooper or Tre"Quan Smith to grab him?
#11 By: Daniel Schultz, November 1st, 2018 13:26
I would drop Hooper as you don't need 3 TE. Though I don't see the fascination with Tre'Quan which seems pretty common in fantasy circles.
8 team standard league and need one WR to cover for multiple byes.
Best option is David Moore, Tyler Locket, D.J. Moore or Chris Godwin.
My other weeks are covered with Ertz, Boyd, and Thielen so this is a one week need.
My other dilemma is which RB to drop. I've already looked the trade route, but on one is budging for fear of helping my team.
Drop one of: Coleman, Lindsay, Fournette or Cook. I'm leaning dropping Cook..

@FF_Contrarian Where would David Moore fit into those rankings?
#13 By: Shawn Siegele , November 2nd, 2018 15:02
So this is Seattle since Moore got involved in Week 4.
He's still the third guy in terms of targets and Expected Points. He looks good because he's absolutely crushed expectation, as has Lockett. Both guys are interesting but tricky weekly starts since receivers on a good run with Wilson often blow away expectation for good stretches. The concern, of course, is that the No. 3 receiver on a low-volume passing offense really shouldn't be startable, and the weekly floor is very, very low.
Here's Moore with MVS and Tre'Quan. (All four started to see more work in Week 4, so it's relatively apples-to-apples.)
MVS has had the edge in targets and EP. MVS and Tre'Quan have also been above expectation, although not by the same amount. In situations like this, you expect two things to happen: The efficiency drops back to "normal" within the context of the skill of the receiver and the efficiency of the passer, the breakout player starts to receive more volume.
In each of these three cases, there is reason for optimism but also realism. Moore is unlikely to displace Baldwin and Lockett. MVS won't supplant Adams and Tre'Quan won't make inroads against Thomas. However, both MVS and Tre'Quan are positioned to solidify themselves as No. 2s. It's possible that Cobb and Allison earn more work in their second healthy weeks, but MVS is making himself the future more and more every week. (Looks like Allison could be out again this week.)
So, to answer the question, I'd have Moore right after the two of them, but it would be close, and it depends largely on how you see the respective offenses. (I've got a lot of MVS and Tre'Quan ownership, so I'm not exactly unbiased, but I picked Moore up a month ago in our RotoViz RSO 16-team league, and he's been a lot of fun to play in that one.)
