At this time of year, you have to be prepared to pounce on any available player as soon as he shows even the slightest sign of a fantasy pulse.

Just because you're prepared doesn't mean you have to pull the trigger, though. Often, you can cost yourself wins in head-to-head play or lose ground in a category in rotisserie if you're too trigger-happy.

Because of the many injuries to key players around the league, everyone is looking to catch lightning in a bottle -- and maybe more, if Lady Luck is in your corner. As the jockeying continues close to halfway mark in the season, there are recent developments that warrant your attention.
