Waiver pickups for Week 14

We’re heading into the stretch run.  This is where the savvy owner makes the last minute pickup to either solidify their playoff push or take advantage of bye week matchups heading into the playoffs.  Some interesting names have emerged:

Derek Lee (CHI) – Chicago has been looking for a second receiver to take the pressure off of Reggie Gray.  They may have landed a better one in Baby Moss, who finally played and finished with 8 catches for 98 yards and 2 TDs.  Grab him if you have a high waiver pick…

Tod Devoe (KC) – 8 for 103 yds, TD — Devoe is now the hot receiver in the Brigade offense (Steve Savoy, Aaron Hosack, Bret Smith and Brad Chavez have all had their turns).  Pick him up and play him next week.  Just don’t be surprised when he falls off the face of the earth.

Waiver Ideas for Week 10

It’s slim pickings as the season progresses.  Did you move on some of the suggestions in the past few weeks?  If you didn’t, you may have already missed out on some of the guys on this list…

Amari Jackson (TAM) – 10 for 146, 2 TDs — With Hank Edwards on injured reserve, Jackson will get his chance to shine.  Took full advantage last week.  Kansas City won’t be able to stop him.

Otis Amey (SJ) – Did you miss out?  Amey led the Sabercats with 6 catches for 109 yards and 2 TDs.  Wait until he gets into shape.

Ben Nelson (SJ) – Nelson came back too and chipped in 6 catches for 82 yards and 2 TDs.  Wait until HE gets into shape.

Waiver ideas for Week 9

Syvelle Newton (PHIL) – 4 for 85, 3 TDs — I’d like to see the catches improve but he could be useful and has been finding the end zone

Dan Raudabaugh (DAL) 29/35, 377 yards, 7 TDs — got a Qb on bye?  Give Raudabaugh a chance against an Iowa squad that lets up points

Waiver ideas for Week 7

Mykel Benson (MILW) 6 rushes, 18 yards, 2 TDs — The Mustangs are completely unpredictable but if you need FB help this may be a stopgap measure

Ryan Vena (PHIL) 18/33, 225 yards, 4 TDs, 2 rushing TDs – I’m thrilled that the Soul keep losing.  Vena is producing from a fantasy perspective and should be on a roster.

Grant Gregory (TAMPA) 23/29, 211 yards, 6 TDs — Did you really think the Storm would be THAT bad all season long?  Gregory looks like he’ll produce some nice games…

Syvelle Newton (PHIL) 7 for 105, 2 TDs — someone’s gotta catch them in Philly, since Donovan Morgan doesn’t seem to wanna be consistent.

Waiver Ideas for Week 5

Lots of teams on bye this week.  Only 8 teams are playing this week: Dallas, Georgia, Utah, San Jose, Philadelphia, Orlando, Iowa, and Kansas City.

In most cases, players on these teams will already have been picked up and won’t offer much bye week coverage.  With that in mind, here’s some ideas for waiver picks this week:

Emery Sammons (SPOKANE) 7 for 79, 2 TDs, rushing TD, 3 tackles, assist — could do some good things from here on it given the unpredictability of the Spokane WRs but he’s on bye this week.

Shaun Kauleinamoku (SPOKANE) 5 for 77 2 TDs — Same here but to a lesser extent

Amarri Jackson (TB) 5 for 84, TD – fair stats but no help during the bye week

Week 3 Waiver Pickups

Here are some players to look at pickup up in Week 3 waivers…

Robert Quiroga (ORL) 8 catches for 103 yards, 3 TDs, 3 tackles, 1 assist – Did you miss out on grabbing him last week?  Don’t miss out this week.  Quiroga is an all-around threat.
Bobby Sippio (ORL) 7 catches for 104 yards, 2 TDs — Sippio is back and should take over this offense soon.  If owners slept on him during the draft, now is the time to make your move.
