Waiver Wire Receivers

Posted on: September 13, 2009 4:04 am
 
Based on my two Fantasy League teams, WR waiver wire is pretty slim pickins, There are a few possible good receivers available like

1.  Chris Henry, might look like all troubles are behind him and Carson P coulb be healthy again good number 3
2.  Justin Gage was decent last year if he stays healthy could be a good number 3
3.  Than you have the old guys Joey Galloway and Isaac Bruce stll out there
 
But the real story is the guys who just cracked the starting lineups and could potentially have big years and are currently under the radar, remember Desean Jackson of last year.  So here are my 3 picks that should be worth watching in the next couple of weeks and might be a good fill if you are desperate for some WR help.  These are very cautious picks but should be watched just in case they blosson into something and they are

1.  Malcolm Kelly, WR for Washington a 6-4 wideout  2nd year player just won the starting position for the Redskins2.  Maurice Stovall WR for TB I know just number 3 right now but is worth watching if B Leftwich ever regains his old form back, and if AB or MC go down with injuries, already nursing.
3.  Laurent Robinsion, looking to make his mark with the Rams, tall gangly receiver and looked good in preseaon.  Yahoo has him as a sleeper pick this year.  If Rams defense is a porous this year as last year, Bulger will be gunslinging all year, problem with that he always on his back, it is a wait and see.

These are three that I will be watching but you never know there is always someone that comes out of nowhere and just hope you are the first to bag him before the other teams do.

Good luck and have fun this year, Fantasy Football is back.

You have two number 1's in your starting lineup that is solid. Moss was shutdown last week but that will not happen every week, Wayne is a stud and knox, well you know it would not be fantasy if you do not take some chances.  good luck to you too.

Knox is a great pickup. He is going to be a solid number 3 WR. I just dropped Austin Miles for Knox. I am sitting Santana Moss and going with Knox this week. My starting 3 WR's this week will be Randy Moss, Reggie Wayne, and Knox. Good luck.

With those three starters probably only need him on a bye week or if they have a tough opponent in a certain week.  Andre should never be benched but with Detroits weak offense there might be a time you might consider Robinson if Det is on the road against a tough opponent, but I just looked at the schedule Chi GB and Balt are the toughest road opponents so Calvin could be a decent play every week.  Calvins bye is week 7 and rams are at home against Indy.  I like Desean as well even with Kolb he is still a threat.

I wished I had your receivers, I have Marshall, R Williams and S Moss, all hype but no results, had to pickup Knox and Manningham for backup, playing Knox this week against seattle and Manningham against TB, not playing marshall or moss until I see some results.  Knox has a tough matchup on the road so not sure what to expect, Knox might be the number 2 guy at Chi going forward.  Giants are a run first team so their receivers are hit and miss but TB not playing well this year so just taking my chances
