Hot off the Wire-Waiver Wire Gems Week 6
Chad Henne-Henne torched the Jets for well over 200 yards and two scores. The schedule will remain difficult for the Phins and their running attack wont be as successful most weeks, so expect Henne to continue to develop. Keeper league owners should take notice, he can be a nice stashee for 2010 and beyond.
Mike Wallace-The guy is a big play machine. He doesnt get many touches, but when he does, he makes them count. He dropped a sure TD early then came back for a second long TD from Big Ben. If you count long TD's as bonus points, this guy is a steal. Think Nate Washington circa 2008.
Michael Bush-The guy is a bruiser and following a respectable effort against the Giants which saw him score and with McFadden out, he will get the carries as Fargas struggled to move the pile.
Anthony Gonzalez-Remember that the preseason sleeper should be returning from injury next week. Yes Garcon and Collie have been solid, but remember he has a full year in the system, developed great chemistry with Manning last year and has sure hands. Keep an eye on him and buy low.
Mike Sims Walker-Do not worry about the 0 he put up last week. He was suspended for missing curfew. Big deal. Grab him now while his owner thinks he was hurt. Pounce.
Miles Austin-This is a no brainer. 10 catches, 2 long scores, 200+ yards. If he is somehow available or on waivers, use your high waiver number on him.
Kyle Orton-I still dont think the Broncos are that good or one of the 4 best teams in the AFC, but Orton is playing very well and as a bye week fill in for a QB you start every week, you could do a lot worse. He moved the Broncos up and down the field and should continue to play mistake free football.
Donnie Avery-Back in the groove with Bulger back under center, went over 80 yards and a score and if he was dropped by an inpatient owner, now is a good time to grab him and stash on the bench for bye weeks.
Not So Bullish On...
Austin Collie-Yes 3 TD's in the last 2 games. What will return of Anthony Gonzalez do?
Anthony Fasano-Yes he scored on MNF, but did not much else.
Leon Washington-Where has he gone in the Jets attack?
Larry Johnson-See Leon Washington.
Chris Henry-After a huge preseason the Bengals talented receiver has been a huge disappointment. Cut bait.
