Good morning, evening, etc Mr. and Mrs. Razzballer. Here are some possible waiver adds if you are into that kind of thing. Sickos.
Kyle Orton: It’s hard to believe Tim Tebow can improve enough to not get benched at some point. Yes, they need to assess his ability, but he’s making it difficult to assess the ability of the other offensive players and he’s keeping the defense on the field an awfully long time. I know they aren’t in must win territory, but I don’t think anyone really wants to see this go on. Orton is not great by any means, but he’s reliable for 10+ fantasy points a game and the Broncos have a great fantasy playoff schedule.
Tarvaris Jackson: No, you can’t trust TJax, but he has been improving quite a bit from week to week and with no running game he’ll have to sling it. He’ll make a decent bye week filler against Dallas and could have matchup value.
Mark Sanchez: He has a nice schedule coming up and since he might have been dropped for his bye week he could be of some use even though I hate to say it out loud.
Christian Ponder: He’s impressed me so far and if he can continue to improve he could have some decent value. He’s more of a 2 QB leaguer, but upside of a bye week filler in standard leagues.
Javon Ringer: What can I say about Javon Ringer? He’s not Chris Johnson. Enough? Well, I don’t know if Johnson can get his groove back or not and that means you have to get Ringer. JR took over as the #1 back toward the end of the game on Sunday and he will continue to get his chances as long as CJ is struggling and I like a bulk of the matchups the Titans have for the rest of the season.
Michael Bush: He’s most likely not on waivers, but Darren McFadden isn’t assured to play this week and Bush is the bell cow when Run DMC be illin’.
Maurice Morris: He has shown that he is the best option for the Best-less Lions. He can’t be relied upon to lead your team to fake wins, but he is a good stop-gap measure.
Curtis Brinkley: He showed some nice hands, decisiveness and lateral movement in relief of Ryan Mathews last night and is worth a speculative pickup in deeper leagues. Mike Tolbert will most likely be back, but news on Mathews’ groin injury has yet to develop.
Antonio Brown: The Steelers are a throw first team and Brown is the guy Roethlisberger is throwing it first to. He’s all over the field and even though Emmanuel Sanders is a crisper route runner and better blocker Brown is Big Ben’s kind of guy. He goes all out and constantly is on the move trying to make backyard plays as Ben scrambles. He’s a must own in all formats.
Sidney Rice: Tarvaris Jackson loves chucking the rock at him. With TJax back it’s once again safe to start him.
Victor Cruz: He’s going to be inconsistent, but he keeps pulling out of the poor weeks to have big weeks. I’d want to be able to play matchups with him and this week he gets a great one against the Patriots.
Eric Decker: Tebow went back to Decker after targeting Demaryius Thomas 10 times in the previous game and targeted Decker 12 times and he caught his 5th touchdown of the season. After Tebow’s snubbing of him last week he may have been dropped. It will be hard to trust him with Tebow in there, but if Orton comes back I think he could be a WR2.
Damian Williams: Nate Washington is just not a #1 receiver. His 2 touchdowns were really nice last week, but they came near the goal line and I just don’t see that happening too often. He’ll need yardage to be able to make up for games without touchdowns and I worry that Damian Williams is their best bet now. He had 4 receptions for 60 yards and I like his upside the most out of the receiving corps. He’s not a must pickup by any means, but I like him in deeper leagues.
Laurent Robinson: He had his second 100 yard game of the season which is one more than Miles Austin and Dez Bryant combined. It’s hard to see much consistency in his future as the the fourth option on the team, but he’s looked good and will continue to get playing time.
Emmanuel Sanders: Sanders is going to continue to be productive on a per target basis because he is a smart player who runs great routes which get him open so he doesn’t have to fight for the ball. The problem is he’s just not going to get the targets that Wallace and Brown get.
Brent Celek: Brent had a big game when the Cowboys tried their best to take out the outside receivers and gave up the middle of the field/underneath routes. But besides that Celek has been seeing more work of late. And now he gets the Bears cover 2 that is susceptible to tight ends.
Jake Ballard: Jake continues to put up respectable numbers and is the 4th best fantasy tight end in the last 5 weeks. And this week he saw 7 targets which is his highest of the season. He’s also worth a start this week in what should be a shootout in New England.
