Felix Jones and More Great Waiver Wire Pickups

1. Felix Jones, DAL RB

A few weeks ago, I told you to pick up RB DeMarco Murray, backup to the at that time injured Felix Jones. Now, Murray is sidelined for the year with a broken foot. Jones did well in his place, carrying 16 times for 106 yards, an average of 6.6 YPC. And with a very favorable matchup vs. TB, Felix is going to be a nice RB play.

2. Marion Barber, CHI RB

With Cutler and Forte out, Barber has stepped up and shown he can prosper. The past four games he has a 4.2 YPC AVG. He will run the ball a lot, and will be a nice play at Flex or RB2.

3. Cedric Benson, CIN RB

Benson has a great YPC average of 4.0 YPC, and facing off against the “Swiss Cheese” “Get well” Rams DEF, and with rookie Andy Dalton getting snaps, Benson will rack up some numbers.

4. Demaryius Thomas, DEN WR

Tebow is getting better, and Thomas has been having some good games lately. His next game is against the terrible pass DEF, NE. Look to him to give you a playoff boost.

5. John Kasay, NO K

Drew Brees can get downfield, he can throw touchdowns, but sometimes, NO will look to Kasay to do the job of getting points, who is playing MIN, the worst Kicking DEF in the NFL.

6. Tim Tebow, DEN QB

Tebow is getting better, and his rushing can’t be stopped. RB Willis MaGahee is playing poorly, so Tebow will air the ball out more. Expect him to get some points against NE.


More Waiver Wire Pickups


1. Reggie Bush

I bet a few weeks ago you would of thought me crazy if I told you this: it’s time to pick up Reggie Bush. The past few weeks he’s been posting double-digit numbers, including a two touchdown wonder in week 10. That’s some fantasy numbers.


2. Brandon Lloyd

I know. He’s owned in 95% of all Yahoo! leagues. But you can still trade for him. Here’s the deal. The Rams’ offensive coordinator used to be Lloyd’s head coach on the Broncos.  That means that Lloyd will be more known and more plays on him will be made. If you’re thinking of trading him, think twice.  (or thrice)

3. Marshawn Lynch

This time, Lynch is owned in only 83% of Yahoo! leagues. He has a season average of 11.20 Yahoo! standard points (anything >10 is good). In fact, Lynch scored an incredible 22.70 points(Yahoo!)! Believe me; you want him.

3 Players to Grab Off the Waiver Wire

1. DeMarco Murray, RB Dallas Cowboys

With double digit fantasy points almost every single game since starting RB Felix Jones’ injury, Murray is already showing potential. Even when Jones returns, Murray might eat into his carries and should be the #1 RB on the Cowboys.

2. Michael Bush, RB Oakland Raiders

With Yahoo! standard scoring, Bush rapped up an incredible 30.20 points. He ran for 157 yards and a score with 85 receiving yards. He’s most likely not gonna do it again, but if Mcfadden doesn’t return soon, Bush will be racking up some numbers.

3. Laurent Robinson, WR Dallas Cowboys

Robinson is just like Bush and Murray in that both starting RBs (Jones and Mcfadden) were injured. This time, however, Robinson stepped up when the starting WR Miles Austin was sidelined with a second hamstring injury. He produced 19 Yahoo! points and got a 58 yard TD pass from Tony Romo. Expect him to put up more numbers next week.
