NFL Waiver Wired-Week 1
Each Week Fantasy Domination will make a list of suggestions as to players that may be available in your league and you should snag off the waiver wire. With kickoff two days away, lets get it started.
Cadillac Williams, RB, Buccaneers-The Bucs now have their Caddy atop the depth chart and if he somehow went undrafted in your league, it is time to gamble on him as a roster stashee. There is no way you can play him in Week 1, however you do not want to miss out at a potential RB starter.
Michael Bush, RB, Raiders-Raiders coach Tom Cable has yet to name a starter for Oakland. What if he shocks us all and selects Bush instead of Darren McFadden? Be prepared and have both.
Matthews Stafford, QB, Lions-Although he is surely gone in keeper leagues, Stafford is worth owning for three reasons in weekly leagues. The Lions will be terrible and will be playing from behind every week, thus needing more passing attempts to catch up. The second reason is Calvin and the third reason is Johnson. He developed a solid rapport with Megatron during the preseason and anyone with that asset should be owned in all leagues.
James Davis, RB, Browns-We have talked about Davis all preseason and now be your last chance to snag him on the wire before the season starts. Jamal Lewis looks old, slow, and done, while Davis is a sparkplug. Grab him in all formats.
Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jaguars-Walker was a surprise in 2008 and went undrafted in 2009 as he was battling an injury during training camp. Walker made it throught the Jags final preseason game and with much of the receiving corps unknown in Jacksonville, if he can continue to develop with David Garrard, Walker can be a solid bye week replacement at WR.
Chaz Schillens, WR, Raiders-Schilens is aiming for a Week 2 return, which makes Schilens a better use of a roster spot than your typical late-round fflier wideout like Devin Thomas or Brandon Stokely. He was the Raiders #1 WR when he went down, so grab him now with confidence.
Anthony Fasano, TE, Dolphins-Fasano was already a solid sleeper at TE that put up some huge games for Miami in 2008, but with news that David Martin is out for the season, more passes that were intended for his TE mate will now end up with Fasano. An excellent red zone target, Fasano should be watched closely.
Brandon Stokely, WR, Broncos-Stokely was a solid fantasy receiver when he played the slot for the Colts. Under new coach Josh McDaniels' offense guess where he is playing? The slot. And guess who played that role so well in New England where McDaniels last coached? Wes Welker. While he may not put up 100 catches like Wes, isnt it worth the risk to see if he can?
