    Use 3rd waiver on Ricky Rubio?

    While I think Rubio should definitely be owned in all 12 team leagues, and will eventually play better than he is right now, I don't think I'd use your waiver on him, for a few reasons.
    1) With Nash, Irving, Vasquez and Iggy I don't think you really need the assists that badly
    2) Rubio's injury may effect his game all season. Even when healthy he had poor FG%, high TO's and relatively low scoring.

    3) Luke Ridnour, JJ Barea and Alexy Shved have all produced this season. Making i easier for the coach to limit Ricky's minutes.

    4) If he's still a FA, and somebody dropped Hibbert, it sounds like the dummies in your league might drop someone else more valuable in the future.

    I would personally not use 3rd priority on him in your specific situation. In other situations it would probably make sense, but not in yours.
    If he does happen to become a FA and nobody else takes him with a waiver,I'd feel comfortable dropping Humphries. I think Leonard is much more valueable than Hump.

    1 suggestion for your team would be to trade away some of your guys who have inflated value due to high FT%. If you are punting that category, you may be able to trade them for players who are better in the categories you need but have a lower value becuase of thier poor FT% which won't hurt you if you are punting.
    OR trade all your bad FT shooters, which would be much harder.
