Do what? Pick up CJ, a 4th RB on the Broncos roster, to sit on the bench?

Yes, if he's got the potential to become a starter. If he doesn't step up, you keep churning hoping to get an upgrade. The backup you cut wasn't going to score any points anyway.

You just do this on your weak positions.

Picked him up, just in case. Not starting him, though. Had to waive Ben Tate, but can probably reclaim him if CJ doesn't do anything since the Texans are on a bye.

Damn it, why can't Broncogary be in my league!

I may pick him up, but damn do I wish I had Tate instead.

Twelve team league. I' m 6-1, tied for first.

Remember Reuben Droughns? Peyton Phillis?

Anytime I can get a guy who is a potential starter over a guy who's a back-up on his own team, I do it. If he doesn't show anything, I keep looking.

I told you, I can pick Tate up Sunday afternoon if CJ doesn't flash (that's for Bmore).

You have the top waiver claim, then? Because in almost any other twelve-team league Ben Tate gets claimed right away.

The strategy is fine and all, but it seems like an insane waste of a guy like Tate.

What kind of waiver system lets you pick guys up on Sunday afternoons?

He's got four broken ribs and he doesn't get that much playing time unless Foster is out.

I'm trying to get a go-to guy and they're are hard to find at this time of the year.
