Waiver Wire for Week 8!
It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark…
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart… (6 teams on byes!!)

You try to scream, but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes…..
BUT here comes AUSSIEGUYS!!!

Yes, it’s our Halloween Waivers – and they are bound to be a THRILLER!!

G’s picks are up first – though his idea of horror is more Texas Chainsaw than Michael Jackson…

Corey Coleman (WR) Cleveland Browns

“Boy, the next word that comes out of your mouth better be some brilliant fuckin’ Mark Twain shit. Cause it’s definitely getting chiseled on your tombstone.” Well it might have to be, “I grabbed Coleman while you were asleep at the wheel”. This may just be the case as I’m guessing he was dropped in a lot of leagues after breaking his hand in practice a week after smoking the Ravens secondary for 104 yards & 2 TDs. Just ask Shareece Wright about his speed. Coleman’s tombstone will read like this, “I’m here to kick ass and chew gum, and I’m all out of bubblegum”.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB), Jets

Before my next waiver l must add this disclaimer.
“That cold ain’t the weather, that’s death approaching”
With 6 QBs avoiding the Halloween massacre this weekend and another handful that you were wishing would fall asleep in the vicinity of Elm Street, you may need to reach out, close your eyes and press add on someone like Ryan Fitzpatrick. Please..”No tears, please. It’s a waste of good suffering.” The Jets do have the Browns this week!

Russell Shepard (WR), Tampa Bay

They hadn’t heard of Jack Burton either and he managed to kick some serious Little China mystic ass. Is Big Trouble a horror movie? Actually probably not – but you can now see that AJ is at the wheel coz the edge has gone off this thing in a big way! VJax is done and Famous doesn’t have all that many targets anymore…. Mike Evans is THE man – and he is THE #1 man in many people’s eyes. Cameron Brate is doing OK, but then after that, it’s a mess. Enter Russell Shepard! YES – THE Russell Shepard! Against the Niners, he caught 5 passes for 71 yards and a TD. Grab him while he is hot and opportunity is knocking.

AJ’s IDP picks

I’m tempted to go back to the Raiders LBing corp this week, but that would be 3 in a row and I’m simply not going to do it. It’s driving me mad. For the record, James looks like he has been outplayed (certainly in the coaches eyes) by Perry Riley – who basically played every snap. There I said it. Do whatever you like with that – I think I’m done and I’m looking elsewhere!!

Jordan Hicks (LB), Eagles

He may not be available in your league, as Hicks had a fair bit of hype in the pre-season. I certainly grabbed him in every league I could! Well his season has been up and down, but this week just gone, as the Eagles laid the hurt on the Vikes, Hicks played 76 snaps (100%) on the way to 11 tackles and a sack. Now THAT’S more like it! If an impatient owner kicked Hicks to the curb, pick him up, dust him off – and take him on a revenge laiden IDP blood-bath of your opposition from this week on!!

William Gholson (DE), Tampa Bay

Against the Niners, 4 year DE Gholston had 7 tackles and a sack (his first of the season). Tampa DC Mike Smith called it Gholson’s best game of the season. You may well be looking for DL help with the teams on bye and Gholson will not be a bad pick up.

Adrian Janson

Adrian Janson (AJ) is one of the AussieguysNFL team and a (fairly) one eyed Charger supporter. His favourite player (was and) is Junior Seau and he is wondering why he is writing this in the third person. He has no idea!
