NFL Waiver Wire Week 3
Byron Leftwich-At the rate the Bucs defense is giving up points, it seems like Leftwich will be airing i tout to play catch up in every game. He has a solid stable of talent, especially if Antonio Bryant ever returns, so add him as a solid QB2 or bye week fill in.
Trent Edwards-Edwards has been rock solid so far for the Bills, throwing 2 more TD passes Sunday. He also has solid weapons, especially when Fred Jackson plays in the backfield. With all of that talent, Edwards is also a solid bye week fill in and borderline starter against the right defense.
Kevin Kolb-There is still no word on whether Donovan McNabb will be back for this weeks game, but Kolb almost threw for 400 yards and added 2 scores against the Saints. The Eagles have always been a run heavy offense, so expect Kolb to post solid numbers going forward. Vick will be back this week, but will not have as much impact as Kolb will as the starter.
Tashard Choice-If Marion Barber cannot go Monday Night Choice may be the Cowboys backup to Felix Jones. Given that Jones is not an every down back, Choice may see some extra carries and be in line for a solid flex spot. If Barber's injury is more serious then originally thought, Choice can be a gem.
Rashard Mendenhall-After watching the first two Steelers games it is clear Willie Parker has lost a step and it seems like it has left him forever. Mendenhall is a 1st round talent with game changing speed and it is about time for the Steelers to hand him the reigns.
LeSean McCoy-Brian Westbrook is shockingly back to game to game status for the Eagles. At any time this can become a serious problem and McCoy is next in line. All owners of B-West should own McCoy but if not, he is a solid prospect down the line.
Mike Sims-Walker-With Troy Williamson out for the year, Walker will re-emerge as the Jags starter on the other side of Torry Holt. He scored and caught 6 balls in week two, so watch out for him to do more of the same if the Jags are constantly playing from behind.
Mario Manningham and Steve Smith-It goes without saying that this Giants duo needs to be owned in every format. No one catches 10 balls in a week like these two do and doesnt end up on a roster, so if you have time, place a waiver claim in for one of these two targets, as it is clear Eli Manning loves to toss the ball in their direction.
Chansi Stuckey-His performances may not be consistant throughout the entire year, but Stuckey is a playmaker who has made some big plays for the Jets so far this season. If he can develop more of an ability in route running, his ability to get open and burst through the secondary makes him a solid WR3 during bye weeks.
Todd Heap-Back from the dead? Two games, two touchdowns.
Brent Celek-Has become the Eagles best receiving target and shows no signs of being impacted by who the quarterback is.
