I'm playing the guy at the top of the standings (even though I have the most points) this week and he has P. Manning on a bye week. He has no backup QB and the waiver wire sits Favre, Hasselbeck, Alex Smith, Sam Bradford, etc. I'm thinking of scooping up Favre so he doesn't. Normally I wouldn't be scared of Favre but he's playing in GB next week so he may put up some points. Do you think this is a good strategy or will this backfire?
We are only allowed two transactions a week, so I'd be stuck with Chi DEF against Washington, which is okay since there's no sure-thing defenses out there this week. I have to use one of my moves to replace Kaeding though.
