Double Check Waiver Wire:
Carson Palmer (QB, ARZ) - did someone drop Palmer? Well make sure to grab him as he puts up strong numbers with a solid receiving core around him.
Jerrick McKinnon (RB, MIN) - McKinnon is now the lead dog and will continue to get the majority of the carries as he becomes the RB of the future for the Vikings.
Cecil Shorts (WR, JAX) - finally healthy again and getting targets. He is only usable in PPR leagues.
Jordan Reed (TE, WAS) - he should not be out there on the waiver wire but if he is then you have to grab him.
Bishop Sankey (RB, TEN) - he is the lead back for the Titans for the rest of the season.
Rueben Randle (WR, NYG) - he should not be on the waiver wire but he is going to benefit the most from the Victor Cruz injury.
Branden Oliver (RB, SD) - we can't be friends if you don't pick up Oliver.
Ronnie Hillman (RB, DEN) - he was recommended last week and be was given the lion share of the workload. You can expect his workload to continue and he should see a TD every now and then as well.
Scott Chandler (TE, BUF) - PPR league only owner should apply here, but he is getting a ton of targets from Kyle Orton.
Andre Williams (RB, NYG) - he is the lead dog as long as Rashard Jennings is out. The Giants had a rough week, but he will bounce back and put up solid numbers next week.
Odell Beckham (WR, NYG) - he didn't have a great week against the Eagles strong defense, but with Victor Cruz done for the year then Beckham is a must grab.
Mohamed Sanu (WR, CIN) - as long as AJ Green and Marvin Jones are out Sanu will be the WR1 on the Bengals. When AJ returns Sanu will still be usable but Sanu should get you through the bye-weeks.
Andre Holmes (WR, OAK) - he was on the watch list last week and now he is a spot-starter. Don't be surprised to hear his name over and over every week as he is a huge target in Oakland.
Bernard Pierce (RB, BAL) - it appears he will be getting 50% of the carries and the goal-line runs so he can help in a dire need.
Louis Murphy (WR, TB) - he is getting a ton of time and targets, but he is a complete boom or bust.
Mike Glennon (QB, TB) - he continues to be a bye week fill-in QB. Derrick Carr (QB, OAK) - he had a huge game this weekend and will still be boom or bust, but with a new coaching staff Carr should continue to develop over time.
Brandon LaFell (WR, NE) - he is a true boom or bust but he is a big target for Brady. He is someone to gamble on if you are in a super deep league.
Tim Wright (TE, NE) - not on the field a ton and not going to get a ton of PPR points but if you are in a TD only league and really need a TE then Wright is a gamble.
Malcom Floyd (WR, SD) - he continues to put up usable fantasy scores but Rivers spreads it around the field so he will always be a risky start.
Antone Smith (RB, ATL) - he is putting up solid fantasy numbers every week and at this point he is a nice bye-week filler with strong upside in PPR leagues.
Storm Johnson (RB, JAX) - if you are in a deep league and need a RB then go add Storm as he is a better option than Toby Gerhart going forward.
Davante Adams (WR, GB) - he should only be started in PPR leagues and for an injury or bye-week.
Jace Amaro (TE, NYJ) - Jace would only be startable in PPR leagues and it would be a huge gamble.
Brandon Bolden (RB, NE) - he is really dependent on the injury to Steven Ridley and he is still a risk to start, but he is worth watching if you are in dire need of a RB.
Theo Riddick (RB, DET) - Only PPR league owners should consider him and only as long as Reggie Bush is out.
Jarvis Landry (WR, MIA) - he is someone to keep an eye on but he can't be started yet as we need to see more consistency before he fills in for your bye-weeks.
