Acquire Add player (in most circumstances)
Consider Add for speculation or because of need
Watch Track player, consider if trend continues
Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)

Times are tough, but in the season's final week, especially if you play in a league with daily lineups, you have a chance to cycle players who can have a short-term impact in certain categories, like the cumulative ones, and gain a surprise point or two, where they're close.

David Aardsma is sidelined for a few days with a strained oblique. Rarely does optimism regarding a strained oblique meet the result it's hoping for.

Things have been a little rough for League lately, but he has filled in for Aardsma quite capably this year in similar circumstances. He has four saves, to go along with a 3.55 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and a grounder rate of more than 60 percent.

Shallow mixed: Consider

Deep mixed: Acquire
