Default Use waiver claim on Caron?

I've got the #4 waiver claim and Caron Butler was dropped. Use it or no, considering Gallo is my only other SF? Who do I drop, maybe Daniel Gibson or Frye?

10 team Roto, 8 standard cats, no TOs
CP
Monta
Deron
Gallo
Love
Harrington
Nene
Tyson Chandler
Hickson
Collison
-----
Biedrins
Frye
Daniel Gibson
Oden

Me personally? I wouldn't use the waiver. I own Butler in my league, and he could come back strong, but it's close enough that I'd wait to see if he clears. Maybe Gibson would be my drop if he does.

He's put up disappointing numbers even when healthy. I dropped him too.

Tought decision in only a 10 team league, but I would go ahead and pick him up. When he's healthy he gets the starting spot and a good amount of minutes. He put up pretty good numbers in Dallas last year. And if you're thin at SF anyway, he is a good fit for you. You look pretty stacked at PF and C so I would probably drop Frye.

Frye as a starter should far exceed Butler's value.

Now Mo Williams was dropped. Is he the better waiver claim?

I would def grab Mo Williams. He should be back soon and as long as he's healthy, should be the #1 option in Cleveland.

Well, Oden declaring microfracture surgery sure made my decisions a lot easier. They both clear waivers on the same day, so I'll be putting one in for both, with MoWill having precedence over Caron. Hopefully I can land one of them, but if not I'll at least have the ability to grab someone hot.

The bigger problem now is how to find blocks, as I'm being left in the dust there and Oden was my miracle savior plan

Maybe go after Wilson Chandler. Hickson+ might get him. He has been getting a ton of blocks and might not command much of a cost. I think he is going to keep it up because the Knicks are playing great defense. I think his minutes will rise too given his production. You could say that he has never had block numbers like this before (which is true and I would try to sell this to his owner), but I think it has a lot to do with the system and his numbers could even get better. Anyway thanks for the help with mine.

Default Re: Use waiver claim on Caron?

Well, I couldnt have asked for a much better scenario IMO. I landed MoWill in place of Oden with the waiver claim, and then Butler went through to the FA pool and I added him in place of Gibson. Two solid adds in one night feels pretty damn good. Team is now:
CP
Monta
Deron
Gallo
Love
Harrington
Nene
Tyson Chandler
MoWill
Frye
------
Collison, Biedrins, Caron, Hickson

I feel like I have all the depth I could ask for as any one of my bench players would be a starter in a 10 team league (and let's hope it stays that way). Once healthy, I'll be looking to send MoWill/Collison (or both if needed) for a shot-blocking/fg% big. I'm suddenly MoWill's biggest fan and would be willing to be his psychiatrist too, pro bono!

for SF depth look to see if you can get Al-Farouq Aminu. He has been starting for the Clippers and putting up some decent numbers.
