Listen, if you read this blog, you know we know our stuff. Go back and look at our track record. We have called out waiver wire picks weeks before those “other sites.” We do not state the obvious. We do the work and you get the results.
At this time of the year, the waiver wire gets slim. if you are in a smaller or shallow league, look back at our posts from the past few weeks, those guys might still be out there in your league.
The playoff push begins now!
RB Andre Brown – He is coming back. We told you to get him last week, if he is still there get him now! He could be inline for some serious carries if David Wilson is out even longer.
WR Mike Brown – Another Brown here. Justin Blackmon is suspended and Brown is the next man up. He has been fairly impressive on his limited opportunities thus far. 13 catches for 226 and a TD. In this offense I don’t see him more than a WR4, but at this point in the season when the waiver wire is bare he could be worth the risk.
WR Jericho Cotchery – He is probably still out there in your league. He has been very inconsistant and has had inconsistant opportunities, but he did have 3 TD’s last week. It wouldnt suprise me if he cut into Sanders or Antonio Brown’s workload some. I mean, Brown was benched for part of the 4th quarter last week.
RB Shonne Greene – He received 9 carries for 38 yards and a TD last week. If he is finally healthy, this could be the type of workload to expect moving forward. Very much a depth kind of pickup, but in this RB thin part of the year, he may be worth the roster move.
RB Rashad Jennings – Firstly, he is McFadden’ sback up so he should already be on your radar. Secondly, he had 176 total yards and a TD last week. Yes, this was mostly in garbage time, but he still put these numbers up. As long as he is starting for the injured McFadden, he is a boarderline flex play.
Browns Defense – They are sitting out there a little over of half the leagues. Now that the offense is functioning at a reasonable level, there is no reason not to pick this team up for your playoff run. They have a great front 7, Joe Hayden, and a great defensive coordinator.
