It's Time to tackle the waivers. It’s week three of this young football season, and we already have a number of nicely-ranked preseason IDPers who already have no business being owned. Let’s take a look at who may be available on your waiver that should be worth rostering. I know it can be hard to say goodbye to your beloved draft choices, but the best thing about this position, Depth!
These guys come in no particular order, just be sure to rank by your needs.
Jerrell Freeman, LB Ind
Even when Pat Angerer comes back, the dominance of Freeman (18 tackles, 1 sack, 1 int, and 1 forced fumble) will buy him more time and the field then not. If he’s available in your league, go ahead and snag him.
William Moore, S Atl
The loss of Brent Grimes creates more responsibility from the team’s leaders in the defensive backfield. You will see even more coverage tackles and pick opportunities from William Moore. He will excel with the added pressure because of his genuine hard-nosed play and nose for the football.
Erin Henderson, LB Min
Depending on his concussion possibility, Erin Henderson has started 2012 with a storm. He had double-digit tackles in each of the first 2 games, and looks to continue his breakout season after getting his first real taste of the NFL in 2011.
Justin Durant, LB Det
A perennial injury plagued underachiever who fell to the wayside after his breakout 2009 campaign. He has started the 2012 season with 19 tackles and looks to have regained his 2009 form. He claims to be healthy as ever. If he can continue to stay on the field, we should see his first 100-tackle season. His tackle totals week-to-week should be worth your blessings.
Randy Starks, DE Mia
Defensive Linemen are the hardest to find on the waivers. Each week these guys can be huge or be duds. Randy Starks has gotten some fantastic endorsements from his coaches and teammates. He had a dominant pre-season and shouldn’t have much competition at Defensive End this season. Keep an eye on his groin as it may be lingering.
Linval Joseph, DT NYG
He could be the name on this list that we will all know by seasons end. Already wreaking havoc in offensive backfields, the Giants will continue to ride him as long as Chris Canty is out. I see him holding onto his role and being a big name going into 2013.
Robert comes from an extensive background in fantasy football. He has competed in competitive leagues for over 10 years, which he has won on numerous occasions. He should bring a fresh perspective to a side of fantasy football looked over by the bulk of fantasy informers. Individual defensive players are possibly the most important element to having a well-rounded fantasy football team, as most people look to the big names to carry their team. Robert comes from a back ground in sports, where he played D3 college basketball at Millsaps College. As an intense competitor he wants to share his knowledge to help you compete in this years fantasy football season.
