Check the waiver wire (players that shouldn't be on the wire but worth checking)
TY Hilton (WR, IND) - most likely not on the waiver wire, but he is a special talent. He had a great week, but it's far from a fluke. He is worth a bench spot for sure.
Danny Woodhead (RB, SD) - Mathews is just not getting it done and Woodhead is now the feature back in San Diego. He is a wonderful addition to any PPR league and if he is still on the waiver wire he is an absolute must grab.
Justin Blackmon (WR, JAX) - came back and had an instant impact on offense. He will be up and down but he is a must grab.
Robert Woods (WR, BUF) - he is drawing a ton of targets. If he is still on your waiver wire then do yourself a favor and pick him up. He is a wonderful PPR WR. The QB situation is extremely rough currently but Woods is a nice stash for now as EJ will be back for your play-offs.
Willis McGahee (RB, CLE) - it was only a matter of time before he was given all of the carries. He has been on this waiver wire list for the past three weeks. He is a must grab at this point for the bye weeks.
Zac Stacy (RB, StL) - He will be splitting time with Daryl Richardson but if you are in need of a running-back he may continue to see more and more carries weekly since Richardson has not been effective on the ground.
Andre Ellington (RB, ARZ) - he makes this list weekly as he keeps eating into Mendenhall's workload. The nice part of Ellington is that if you are in a PPR league he has tons of upside. He has found the end-zone as well, so Ellington is a must-grab starting this week.
Pierre Thomas (RB, NO) - Extremely solid game for Thomas, but he will still share the workload with Sproles. He is a flex option during the bye weeks or for injuries.
Alshon Jeffery (WR, CHI) - two weeks in a row of putting up solid fantasy numbers. He is a solid grab for the rest of your bye weeks.

LeGarrette Blount (RB, NE) - if Ridley remains sidelined then use Blount as a fill-in.
Marcel Reece (RB, OAK) - keep an eye on Jennings and McFadden's injury. Reece makes a nice PPR play if both of those two are out.
Terrence Williams (WR, DAL) - had two solid games, from a fantasy perspective, in a row and can't be ignored. When Miles gets back it will lessen his value so keep an eye on Miles health status.
Rueben Randle (WR, NYG) - Solid game for Randle finally, but he is still a boom or bust WR.
Brandon Bolden (RB, NE) - coming off an injury and filling in for Vareen and Ridley with Blount. If Ridley remains out and you are in a PPR league Bolden can be used.
Charles Clay (TE, MIA) - he is putting up usable fantasy numbers weekly and if your current TE is underperforming or you need a bye week TE then Clay is your new TE.
Nick Foles (QB, PHI) - Filling in for Michael Vick due to his hamstring injury. He has a good arm and could fill in if you are hurting at QB. He is the best QB available on the waiver wire only if Vick misses next week.
Josh Freeman (QB, MIN) - He couldn't have picked a better spot. It won't be long until the Vikings put their new QB in a starting role. There are a number of weapons in Minnesota and he is a solid stash right now.
Keenan Allen and Vincent Brown (WR, SD) - the issue with Chargers WR's is that they can be extremely boom or bust. If you are facing the bye-weeks in a deeper league and you are in need of a WR then either of these WR's is a plug and play. Brown is a safer pick while Allen has more upside.
Brandon Jacobs (RB, NYG) - Wilson should return next week and Jacobs is not exactly someone you want to rely on next week.
Rashad Jennings (RB, OAK) - if Darren McFadden is still out then Jennings can be started. Once McFadden is back Jennings will go back to being fantasy irrelevant. Keep an eye on Jennings injury as Reece will be the one to target.
Sean McGrath (TE, KC) - he is putting up usable fantasy numbers. If you are in need of a bye week filler at TE then look to McGrath.
Ryan Broyles (WR, DET) - Calvin should be back next week and Broyles didn't have a solid week. He is still a player to watch.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, BUF) - Had a pretty good game against a tough KC defense. If you are in a 2 QB league and need a QB then Fitzpatrick isn't too bad.
Brandon Weedon (QB, CLE) - Weedon is not extremely impressive but with a couple injured QB's if you are in a two QB league then you have to keep an eye on him.
