  1. A guy in my league dropped Brian Hartline today. I have Amendola injured and D. Thomas on bye this week and need WR help. Would picking up Hartline be worth the waiver priority? I have a roster spot available to pick him up, if so.

  2. And I just realized Hartline is also on bye this week.... oh well.

  3. Worth a pickup though, so wait until he clears waivers and get him "free" as a free agent
