Here are a few waiver wire guys to think over. I’ll probably throw some lesser known guys out there later, but these are the guys I would want if I needed some help, and I always need some help.
David Garrard: The Texans are just plain awful at stopping quarterbacks. They haven’t kept an opposing quarterback from getting less than 20 fantasy points. Garrard is the opposite of consistent, but he has had over 20 fantasy points in 4 of the 6 games he’s played in. With so many good quarterbacks on bye this week Garrard becomes a top 5 option.
Shaun Hill: While subbing for Stafford he put up great fantasy numbers and his schedule should keep that up. Of course this week is up in the air and we might see Drew Stanton, but there is a chance he could go. Keep an eye on this one, but he will be the guy
Tashard Choice: Who knows what’s going to go down in Big D, but Jason Garrett probably won’t keep things status quo. We won’t know for sure until they get out on the field, but Choice is worth grabbing just in case he becomes the main guy.
Mike Goodson: The Panthers running back situation is not a happy good times one by any stretch of the imagination, but if you’ve got no other options, any possible starting running back is worth a look. Sadly a lot depends on Tyrell Sutton and Deangelo Williams injury situation which won’t be clear until later in the week.
James Jones: With Mr. Rodgers throwing you the ball even King Friday could be a good fantasy option and that guy is old. Jones has the ability, but will be inconsistent, but he needs to be owned.
Nate Burleson: I sure wish Matthew Stafford wasn’t hurt, but Shaun Hill has shown he can keep fantasy players in points. Burleson will continue to benefit from single coverage as long as Megatron stays in his wide receiver form.
Sidney Rice: He may play this week, but unless you are desperate it would would be a good idea to sit him. If he is sitting in free agency it would behoove you to unseat him.
Blair White: Austin Collie won’t play in week 10 so The Blair White Project will be green lit once again. He makes for a nice pickup if you need a spot starter.
Vincent Jackson: He has just the bye and one game left to sit out and will have practiced with the starters for a month by the time he starts. Unless Philip Rivers all of the sudden turns into Philip Glass, VJax becomes a WR1 from day one.
