Its a FAAB waivers so just a matter of how much I want to bid on him. I'm in 1st with 6th highest waiver budget in a 12 team league, we start 2 RB and 2 flex with my RB being Freeman, Gore, Woodhead, and Hillman at the moment so getting Williams is not make or break for me but I am always looking to add depth and seems like just when I think of dropping Hillman he has a big game sitting on my bench. One guy lost Bell and Lewis these past 2 weeks and lost his bid on DeAngelo last week so he probably is going to bid on Karlos
I'd love to add another WR but its really slim pickings right now with a lot of matchup boom or bust type WR types being it's a PPR league WR waivers are always competitive.

I'm in this same boat but throwing another twist into this topic... Would you rather own Williams or Starks over Hillman right now? I'm thinking possibly yes on Williams but no on Starks? Just when you think Hillman is finally going to take the job in Denver Anderson seems to work his way back into it plus now Hillman has an injury to deal with too that he won't be 100%

Walker until Julius shows he's healthy and going to be a big part of the offense. He doesn't have Manning throwing to him anymore. I think you could go either way at WR but I like Jones just because he has the best QB in the league throwing to him and always seems to catch a TD. He's only had 1 game this season without a TD and he still had 6 targets for 98 yards in that one

I'm certainly not a fan of Watkins, guy sure talks a lot for only having about a handful or so of good games in his career so far and now I see he's gone public about not getting enough targets so he's official a WR diva. He's such a boom or bust guy, I already dropped him in the league I owned him in and the guys that has picked him up since hasn't gotten a point out of him yet.

Gore, Foster, Lynch in that order. Gore will probably see a lot of touches in a rivalry game with Luck just coming back. Foster is a really juicy choice too with the Jags defense but I'd like to see him show he is 100% before trusting him too much. Lynch is just coming back, hard to trust him until you see how healthy he really is

Well going into this season after the draft I had I was concerned with RB with our scoring format because in a 12 team PPR league we start 2 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 2 Flex, 1 TE, K and individual defensive players at LB CB S DL and a D Flex. Luckily I drafted Brady and Luck so I was set there but some guys really loaded up at RB so waivers for RB are pretty slim in our league with those 2 flex spots. I'm bidding somewhat agressively on West tonight because 1 injury or demotion at RB in our league can really affect your roster so I guess I will gamble on an unproven guy that should see the most snaps over a guy that is pretty much in a 50/50 time share right now. At least if I get outbid I still have Hillman on my roster

That is for you to decide how valuable that player is to you right now in your current situation. If he fills a long term need you bid aggressively but if you have holes in your roster you think you wll need to address later in the season then bid conservatively and save your money for a bigger need. I'm in a competitive 12 team PPR league where 1 guy has already spent all $100 of his waiver money and 3 others already are under half of theirs, I'm 4-1 with the highest scoring team with only a 5-0 team in my way of 1st so while West is not going to make or break my RB situation I am bidding fairly agressively on him tonight because if he does take the KC job and do well it will be money well spend and if he is nothing special I really didn't lose anything taking that risk. Based off what Jones went for I think you probably need to bid in the $55-65 range at minimum because Jones was still in a time share with an established starter, West probably will share some with Davis but the RB1 job is up for grabs in KC with Charles out so it's not like there is a controversy like Washington has.

Also sounds like Big Ben is wanting to get back sooner than later too. I doubt he plays this week but he originally may have been back on week 8 so a week 7 return may not be out of the question. You are only talking about maybe 1 or 2 more starts by Vick possibly

I'll be honest I am not a fan of Watkins and in fact I dropped him in 1 league because he's only had 1 decent week in the 3 weeks he has actually played. Last year he did a bulk of his fantasy scoring in only 3 or 4 games I believe, he is a boom or bust WR I think. I know Graham has had his struggles so far this year too so I guess it's a matter of which guy you think will actually get it together and have a better season.
