Waiver Wired

At this point in the season you are simply looking for players to replace injured stars, fill in for bye weeks, or players on the cusp of busting out.  We have all of those recommendations all in one place.

Ryan Moats
Obviously everyone is going to try and grab him this week after a 3 TD week against Buffalo.  But remember 2 things.  He has not been named the clear starter over Steve Slaton and Buffalo is the worst defense against the run.  Moats may be a solid waiver wire add, but for those expecting 100 yds and a score every week, you will be disappointed.

Kevin Walter
For where he was drafted in many leagues, Walter has been a huge bust.  Now that Owen Daniels is out for the year, expect Walter to get more targets and start to earn his draft position.

Dustin Keller
The Jets TE was dropped in many leagues, however his 8 catch and a TD game this week, he can be a solid option for teams looking to replace a Chris Cooley or Owen Daniels.  He was stopped just short of hte goal line on another catch, so watch him explode in the 2nd half as Sanchez becomes more comfortable throwing his way.

Malcolm Floyd
Floyd has always been a solid option for the Chargers down in the red zone and now with their release of Chris Chambers, Floyd can be a threat between the 20's as well.  A solid WR3 or flex play going forward in that explosive offense.

Alex Smith
Smith played very well against the Colts and now seems locked in as the 49ers QB for the rest of the year.  With Crabtree and Davis he has 2 solid targets, not to mention a ground game that causes defenses to respect the run.  He can be a solid QB fill in for an injury or bye week, especially a solid add in keeper leagues.
