Waiver Wire Week 5

Some WR gems this week

Please note that I play in 10 and 12 team leagues with 27-30 player rosters, so between 300-324 players are already on rosters in my leagues. That said, here are some of the guys I'll be putting bids in on this week.


Last week I listed Joe Flacco and C.J. Beathard.  Beathard is still available in most of my leagues.

  1. Chad Kelly (Denver): Case Keenum is not getting the job done. Nor is Vance Joseph, the Denver coach. The coach and the quarterback may be on the hot seat already.  Kelly played fantastic in the preseason, easily pushing out Paxton Lynch for the #2 role. I added him to several of my rosters during the preseason but dropped him at the cut date in all of my leagues.  Now I may add him back. He was an elite college prospect but fell to the last pick in the NFL draft largely due to character issues which so far have not reemerged at Denver.

Running Backs

Last week I listed Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman.

  1. Kyle Juszczyk (San Fransico): I think I would only do this in PPR leagues.  He's the RB 42 so far in my 1/2 PPR league.  He was already their best receiving back.  Now Breida is injured.  Alfred Morris cannot catch.  He's going to see even more action.  He was a was averaging 3 targets a game after 4 weeks.  After Breida went down this week, he received 7 targets from "check-down Beathard" and turned that into 6 receptions for 75 yards.

Wide Receivers

Last week I listed Rashad Higgins and Willie Snead.  Both are still available in most of my leagues.

  1. Chad Williams (Arizona): I was surprised to see him available in one of my leagues.  I assumed most people had hung on to him even though he has yet to produce.  Rosen threw him one TD last week (really 2 but one was called back).  They seem to have a connection.  He was targeted 6 times last week.  Sad to say, but Larry Fitzgerald is about to need a replacement.
  2. David Moore (Seattle): I love this one!  I actually added him to several of my teams late last week.  It's always fun when you jump on a guy few people have heard of and then he scores two TDs that week.  He played awesome during the preseason.  I added him in several leagues hoping he would beat out some of the weak Seattle WRs.  Well he finally has.  He has won the WR 3 role there and played 52% of last week's snaps.  He had an incredible SPARQ score.  Seatlle always knows how to find guys like this.
  3. Equanimeous St. Brown (Green Bay): While Marquez Valdes-Scantling was rostered in all my leagues, ESB was not.  Rodgers certainly had more of a connection this week with MVS, connecting 7 times for 68 yards and one TD.  But ESB did well too.  In his first game, he had 5 catches for 89 yards. I know Allison will come back and ESB's play time will be limited.  But we're talking dynasty, right?  He's definately worth adding to your team if you had to drop him during the final preseason cuts.

Tight Ends

Last week I listed Nick Vannett, Tyler Kroft, and Rhett Ellison.  Vannett is still available in most of my leagues.

  1. Geoff Swaim (Dallas): This is no long-term solution, but if you're one of those teams who have lost TEs due to injury in this crazy season of TE injuries, then Swaim could help you out.  He only caught 3 balls on Sunday, but he turned them into 55 yards.  What I liked most, is that some plays were designed specifically for him.  Also, he is likely Dallas's best red zone threat since their WRs are so bad.
  2. Niles Paul (Jacksonville): Paul stepped up after ASJ went down with a season ending injury on Sunday.  He'll be Jacksonville's starting TE now.  He did well in game one, though it was in a lot of Bortles garbage time.  But that's what Bortles does, so maybe he'll benefit more often than not.  ASJ was a big part of their offense, so I assume Paul will be too.
