Work is a weekly
updated list of the top players found on the waiver wire that could
improve your roster, along with a suggestion of which players
may be holding you back. We assume standard scoring and a
size of 12.
really was just a matter of time. Tebow was our fantasy game's highest
point producer through the final 3 weeks of last season. Kyle Orton's
performance through 3+ quarters last week against the Chargers was
unequivocally, undeniably, absolutely the worst display of football so
far this season. He lost his starting job. Tim stepped in and in less
then a quarter almost brought his team back from a 16 point
deficit. It's Tebow time in the mile high city.
Earnhest Graham - RB - Tampa Bay
RB LeGaratte Blount missed practice again on Wednesday (knee) and all
signs are pointing towards him being inactive this week against New
Orleans. The Saints have a stout run defense but as Graham has proven
many times in the past, he can be a monster catching balls out of the
backfield (2 games already with 7+ receptions). If you are in a PPR
league, scoop him up and don't second guess starting him at RB2. If you
don't receive any points per reception, Graham is a risky play, but the
reception yards are sure to add up.
Jackie Battle - RB - Kansas City
lead the team in Week 5 with 19 carries for 119 yards. Head coach Todd
Haley has stated that Battle will receive more and more opportunities
going forward. The Chiefs have a bye set for this week but you can't
afford to wait. Scoop him up while you can.
Heyward Bey - WR - Oakland Raiders
has fooled us in the past, but the last two weeks he has woke up with 11
balls for 214 yards and a TD. He is QB Jason Campbell's main aerial
threat and most consistent receiver as of late. Facing CB Joe Haden and
the Cleveland Browns this week makes Heward-Bey a very risky option
(unless Moore/Ford/Murphy draws Haden), but if he produces again,
the waiver wire lineup will be long. Stay ahead of the
and give him an add.
Crabtree - WR - San Francsico 49ers
the Niners losing Josh Morgan for the season and Braylon Edwards still
(knee), Crabtree is the only wide receiver on the team worth owning.
Alex Smith will be looking towards his TE Vernon Davis a lot, but
Crabtree is a decent WR3 play this week @ Detroit.
Delone Carter - RB -
Addai missed practice again on Wednesday (hamstring). With the Colts
set to face the Bengals run defense this week, no Indy RB is a great
play. But the extent of Addai's injury is not yet known, so both Delone
Carter and Donal Brown could have increased value going forward. Delone
has been a popular Addai-handcuff all season.
Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
am actually not suggesting to add Baldwin right now, you can afford to
wait until this time next week (If Mike Williams is still out). Just
wanted to give you guys the heads-up. Seattle is on a bye this week and
then face the Browns in Week 7. One of the best corners in
league, Joe Haden, will have his plate full with Sidney Rice. This
leaves Bladwin the chance to exploit Sheldon Brown, which he proved he
can do in Week 5 against the Giants (8 Rec for 136 Yds and a TD)
Oakland Raiders - DST
Raiders have the putrid Browns offense scheduled for this week. With
the exception of promoted WR Greg Little (who has been one of our Prospects
all season), the Browns offense is sluggish. Oakland makes for a strong
play at home coming off an emotional win in Week 5 against Houston.
6 - Who to Drop?
Orton - QB - Denver Broncos
Orton's performance through 3+ quarters last week against the Chargers
was unequivocally, undeniably, absolutely the worst display of football
so far this season. He lost his starting job. It's Tebow time in the
mile high city.
Isaac Redman - RB - Pittsburgh
Mendenhall is not listed on the Week 6 injury report for the Steelers.
Unless you want to hold onto Redman as a Mendenhall handcuff, his
fantasy roster time has passed.
Scott Chandler - TE
- Buffalo Bills
is clearly just a red zone target. That's not a bad thing, it just
makes his weekly fantasy point production extremely unpredicable. In
the first 3 weeks he caught 9 balls for 89 yards and 4 touchdowns - the
last two weeks he's hauled in 3 catches for 12 yards. Too
unpredictable for head-to-head fantasy leagues.
