He's in the Jahvid Best mold, less explosive, but more durable


Agree with the assessment although the durability may unfortunately be an understatement given Best's current status.

While these things usually don't work out, isn't that the only way to stay ahead of the curve? If you sit back instead of jumping at every opportunity you ultimately just end up missing out on the good waiver wire players.

Unless you have a huge roster, jumping at every opportunity can cost you a good waiver player when you drop them for Shane Vareen.

Every week I have one spot I use for waiver wire adds that, unless the player continues to do well, I switch out for the next weeks waiver wire goodies. While this is mostly a revolving door of players, it has gotten me murry in one league and decent use out of decker and david nelson earlier this season.

This week I'll be dropping lance ball for smith/gerhart which I'm fine with considering they won't touch my lineup unless they blow up.

Edit: I don't trust Vareen at all, especially considering how little faith I have in the Patriots keeping a consistent running game going with a lead back not named BGE that doesn't change on a weekly basis.

^^This. It costs you waiver priority to chase all of these guys instead of picking your spots for guys that have a legit shot of sustaining success and cracking your line up. And the way to stay ahead of curve is to grab these guys before they hit the scoresheet - like grabbing Kevin Smith before last game like I was going to do, but decided at the last minute to not pull the trigger. :F The exception being backups being promoted due to injury, which is difficult to predict.

anyone who watched that game to the end knows he didn't look AMAZING.

He was pretty good and ripped one long run. They then tried very hard to let him find paydirt for payoff on the long run.

Far from amazing. Impressive with the few carries he got, but completely fantasy irrelevant from here on it

Exactly. Might be relevant to the Patriots, but not fantasy relevant.

He's worthless while BJGE is still around and even of he goes down there's still Woodhead and Ridley. Ridley has looked great at times this year but doesn't get touches.

If you have a bench spot ok but I'd rather have a lottery ticket stud handcuff on my bench. I learned a while ago to stay away from Shanahan and Belichek backfields.

So true. I black them out on my draft board and never bother bidding on them on waivers.

Plenty of options on the other 30 teams in the league.

If it's an athletic playmaker drafted high that was hurt earlier on a team with a great passing game, but lousy rb's.

Look at all the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rd wr's and rb's that cracked the fantasy radar at 1 point this year. Some went undrafted in fantasy land.

A.J. Green, Julio Jones, Ingram, T Smith, DeMarco, Helu, Ridley, Little.

There are more, this is just off the top of my head. Most top picks get a good look at some point in the year. His is just coming later. Everyone on that list is relevent in a 12 team league except for Ridley right now.

Do u dispute this or do you just hate on people that don't share the same obvious views as yahoo fantasy videos? Like I said earlier, If you have no waiver priority some of us have to dig deeper. You were probably bashing Kevin Smith last week :lol:

Wide receivers are different. More of them get to play with all the 3-, 4- and 5-WRs sets common in today's NFL.

But RBs, only one gets to play at a time.

And, when it's a Pats RB, it's even dicier. I mean, Law Firm is the starter, and you don't even know week-to-week when it's safe to start him.

:roll:
Lets explain this a little better, instead of having the knee jerk reaction of he was amazing.


basically what happen was a rb who is a 5 back rotation(35 y/o faulk,ridley,BJGE,woodhead) of being active on any sunday showed up on the box score of a game in the 4th qaurter in a 27-3 games. Now basically BJGE is on a 1 year deal and bill has to decide if he is going to roll with the guys he drafted last draft for next year. He will most likly have to decide if the pats want to keep BJGE and if he will keep faulk on next year. So my guess is he gave vereen a shot to see if this is a viable plan. How much longer will this happen, have no idea, but the guy could be inactive any week for the rest of this season, BJGE has been more than adequate this year and I see no reason for them to replace him at this point in the season.. Did he look amazing on 8 carries ? IDK, why dont you step back for a minute and think about it. \:D/

So far in this thread, there's one guy (who admits to drinking heavily during the game) that loves Vereen as an add.
Then there is every other response that says "don't get too excited"
