Waiver Wire Suggestions

Last chance to churn your roster

Quarterbacks

  1. Chad Kelly (Denver): He has looked fantastic and Kennum has looked pretty bad. He is way more athletic and has a much stronger arm than Keenum. He was thought to be among the top QBs in his class but character concerns made him fall to the last pick in the draft.

Running Backs

  1. Marcus Murphy (Buffalo): This guy has looked electric. He reminds me of what we saw in Tarik Cohen last year. I believe he will beat out Chris Ivory for the number two spot behind McCoy.
  2. Chris Warren (Oakland): All of us Longhorn fans have seen this before. Warren looks fast and powerful. I believe he's a lock to make the team. Richard or Washington will be the player that is cut soon.
  3. Philip Lindsay (Denver): Some of the beat reporters believe Denver has already given up on Booker. Lindsay is their guy. He's rather small, but could play a role in the passing game.
  4. Rob Kelley (Washington): The Guice injury left the running back position up for grabs. Kelley has been running with the first team, and the team seems to have soured on Perine. I am not afraid of Adrian Peterson winning the job outright.
  5. Ryan Nall (Chicago): I was high on Nall during all of my rookie drafts. I picked him up with my last pick in several leagues.  After he looked bad in the first preseason game, I dropped him. Of course, he goes off in game number two. I have regrets. I think he will make the team and fight for a back-up role.
  6. Christine Michael (Indianapolis): He's back. The NFL and our dynasty teams can't get rid of this guy. The injuries, suspensions, and rookies in the backfield have made it a jumbled mess. I doubt Michael can win the job, but you never know.
  7. Mike Boone (Minnesota): He runs like Marshawn Lynch and Alex Collins. I enjoy watching him as a player, but wonder how he will get playing time behind Cook and Murray.
  8. Roc Thomas (Minnnesota): He was a top recruit in high school and is looking great in camp and in the preseason games. I really wish he was on a different team with less of a crowded backfield.
  9. Jeremy McNichols (San Fransisco): Someone has to run for the 49ers while McKinnon and Breida are out with injuries.  I believe he will make the team, but doubt he will get playing time after the preseason.
  10. Alfred Morris (San Fransisco): The Shanahan family has made a star of Morris before. He showed some signs of life running with Dallas last year while Elliot was out, but no team picked him up until they were hurt by injuries. He could just be a camp body.

Wide Receivers

  1. Marquez Valdez-Scantling (Green Bay): He has flashed in some preseason games and beat reporters seem to believe he has risen above the many other rookie wide receivers in camp.
  2. Ryan Grant (Indianapolis): It's nice to be Luck's number two wide receiver. He seems to have solidified the job opposite TY Hilton.
  3. Richie James (San Fransisco): He was a ball hog in college at a smaller school (Middle Tennessee State) and has been getting time in the preseason games. It's a crowded depth chart with a higher drafted rookie (Pettis) ahead of him, but I like his chances to make the team and play. 
  4. Rashard Higgins (Cleveland): Higgins has looked good filling in for Josh Gordon, who while back in camp is now behind. I remember being high on Higgins in rookie drafts a few years ago and drafted him several times.
  5. Jake Kumero (Green Bay): He has certainly made some flash plays this preseason. What I find most compelling is the priase he has received from Rodgers who likes to throw to guys he trusts.
  6. Cordarrelle Patterson (New England): Is he the new Randy Moss for New England? Normally the free agent wide receivers Bellichick brings in quickly fail, but there was that one time it worked.
  7. Eric Decker (New England): See above comments :)

Tight Ends

  1. Nick Vannett (Seattle): Russell Wilson has looked to him a lot in the preseason games. He has shown well too. With Dixon hampered by injury, he is taking advantage of his opportunity and could win the job outright.
  2. Blake Jarwin (Dallas): It seems like he has won the job in Dallas. He's had a variety of targets in the preseason and various depths.  Dallas schemes open their tight ends a lot. I like his chances.
  3. Vance McDonald (Pittsburg): Vance is far more athletic than Jesse James.  If they find a way to use his athleticism like they did in their last playoff game, then he could be a star. They are already too many pass catching stars in Pittsburg though.
  4. Stepehen Anderson (Houston): I am not sure who will win the starting position in Houston, but Anderson has looked the best to me thus far.
  5. Ian Thomas (Carolina): Olsen has looked really bad to me this preseason. I'm not sure he can hold off Thomas, the younger and faster rookie, for very long.
