|Scott Rovak - US PRESSWIRE|
5 Star Pickups
Danny Amendola (WR, StL) - check his stats from this week and previously when he has played; he is the pick-up of the week.
Beanie Wells (RB, ARZ) - he will be back soon and you want to stash him now. When he comes back he will take over.
4 Star Pickups
Danario Alexander (WR, SD) - Alexander has replaced Robert Meachem as a starting WR in SD. If you are in need of a WR then Alexander will be boom or bust weekly WR, but one of the better waiver wire targets of the week.
Daniel Thomas (RB, MIA) - Reggie Bush keeps losing snaps to Thomas and Reggie was benched this week after a fumble. Stash Thomas for now.
Marcell Reece (RB, OAK) - Oakland has turned to Reece for their starting RB while Mike Goodson and Darren McFadden are away. He will do even better in PPR leagues as he is a converted WR to FB/RB.
Joique Bell (RB, DET) - if you are in a PPR league Bell is going to put up consistent points and has TD upside.
Brandon Myers (TE, OAK) - if you need a TE that will give you 3-6 catches a week with TD upside then go with Myers. Better play in PPR leagues.
3 Star Pickups
Jake Locker (QB, TEN) - he has made this list almost weekly; fine as a backup QB for your roster.Golden Tate (WR, SEA) - seems to find the end-zone every week. Big time boom or bust but you could gamble on worse.
Andre Brown (RB, NYG) - The Giants were getting blown out and NYG allowed Brown to handle the rock. He looks pretty darn solid and Bradshaw is known for injuries.
Mark Ingram (RB, NO) - is he on your waiver wire; he is a stash at this point but looking better each week.
Dennis Pitta (TE, BAL) - had a nice weekend but still a boom or bust TE at this point, which makes him dicey to start.
2 Star Pickups
Donald Jones (WR, BUF) - he is very much a boom or bust WR, but when Buffalo is playing from behind against tough matchups he can be a sneaky start.
Cecil Shorts/Laurent Robinson (WR, JAX) - two WR’s that will truly be up and down from week to week. Shorts has been the more consistent of the two and has a bit more upside. Only use for bye week emergencies at this point, but there are better WR’s available out there.
Scott Chandler (TE, BUF) - getting many targets from Fitzpatrick but not going to set the world on fire.
Chris Ivory (RB, NO) - just looked solid on his long run; there are so many RB’s in NO that it’s hard to recommend him has a starter.
1 Star Pickups
Nick Foles (QB, PHI) - Vick had a concussion this Sunday and it gave Foles a chance to play for a while. Foles is only someone to keep an eye on at this point.
