Taking waiver wire players you don't need


Guy I'm playing this week is in need of a TE. He's going to pick someone off waivers. Would it be a dick move if I unloaded some of my bench players and picked up any viable TEs remaining just to keep them away from him?

That being said, if I do it, who would you want to take away from him (He currently dropped Keller, picked up Pitta, then proceeded to bench Pitta):

Finley @ Chicago
Tamme @ Baltimore
Fleener @ Houston
Clark @ New Orleans

Yes, but that's playing hard ball and he should be expecting it.

I've done it and had it done to me. All in good fun, usually.

Just worry about your own team. Wasting time worrying about your opponents lineup will get you no where.

Oh I've worried plenty about my team

My lineup is set, and any players I drop from my bench are going to be useless to me for the remainder of the season anyway. It can't hurt to weaken my opponent without any detriment to me.

Sure, but it is fairly hard to predict the output of TEs when you are in week 15 scouring the waiver wires.

My advice (probably worth nothing) is just play with your strongest lineup possible. Set your line up and be at peace with who you start.

I am probably in the minority on this.

No. You play to win the game.

This would be my TE ranking of the four listed.

QB's and RB's definitely, but like they said. TE's are so hard to predict unless you have a top 5 one. Dallas Clark scored against the Saints and hasn't done much since. He's got the Saints this week.

I would pick up Finley, just to keep away from him.
