After a (long) hiatus your weekly waivers and free agents column (or wwfac for short) is back!! Woo, I hear you all cry, just in time for London and it’s shit 4G signal in Wembley. The list below is my top 5ish players at each position (excluding kickers and DST’s….coz you all hoard them). Enjoy and hopefully I’ll make it back from a dodgy Redskins fan night in ol’London town on Saturday night.
Dak Prescott– The future is now. Prescott is playing really well and is a solid QB1. Although Tony Romo is due back, he’s made of glass and one hit away from retiring. He’d make an ideal tonic for those owners suffering at QB (ahem Quakes….Bohos and 187s!)
Tyrod Taylor– Welcome back to fantasy relevance Tyrod. Two nice weeks against powder-puff opponents and next week he faces the Patriots. He’ll be a decent streamer with the Pats just average against QBs (16.67fp)
Colin Kaepernick– Two solid showings and a tasty encounter with the Saints D in Week 9…..probably not worth a stash, but could help out in a busy bye week.
Damien Williams– 3 solid weeks of 7 points per game. Sometimes beggars can’t be choosers.
Ka’Deem Carey– John Fox hates rookies. Carey isn’t a rookie so he’ll try and give him as many touches as possible so that he doesn’t have to rely on a rookie. It doesn’t make sense…….it just will be.
Peyton Barber– Jizz Rodgers won’t last at a 25+ carry rate. Barber is next man up and is NO slouch.
Rob Kelley– Producing on limited touches.
Cole Beasley– He’s small, white and scoring touchdowns. Dak Prescott loves him…..perhaps he’s worth some of your fantasy love?
Quincy Enunwa– Finally scored after taking a couple of weeks to adjust to increased attention. He’s big, fast and has good hands, SNAP HIM UP!
Cordarrelle Patterson– If you love Tavon Austin but hate his inconsistency…..here’s his bigger, faster and more inconsistent cousin <<buyer beware>>
Darrius Heyward-Bey– The Steelers love big, fast WRs who can’t catch. However, they also like to chuck long bombs at them until they catch them. While their other stone-handed receivers are out, H-Bey is worth a look…..if you squint hard enough Landry Jones might even look like Big Ben.
Dorial Green-Beckham– Seeing more reps and targets, hmmmm
CJ Fiedorowicz– He’s big, slow, can catch and is starting! What more can you ask for…
Lance Kendricks– The Rams love Kendricks…..he’s not very good unless you’re happy with 5 points production from TE.
Antonio Gates– He’s been a disappointment this season and seen most of his targets move to the Chargers younger, talented WRs. However, don’t be fooled by the Henry hype, Rivers love big Antonio and if you can live with the odd 2 pointer he’ll reward you with the odd 7 pointer 😉
