Caleb Hanie, Toby Gerhart and Kevin Smith lead the way in week 12
The bye weeks are finally over and now we can just roll with what we’ve got. But what if injuries and poor play from your roster means you don’t have enough? Well, in an effort to guide you through the playoff push, here’s a look at who will be some of the hot commodities off the fantasy football waiver wire in Week 12. Some of them I think are decent plays for this week and maybe beyond, but most of the wire has players that should probably stay right there.
Tim Tebow has been a worthwhile fantasy start. But not this week.
I’ve told you before, don’t watch Tim Tebow play if he’s on your fantasy team; just look at the box score after the game and be satisfied.
The Denver Broncos’ quarterback continues to produce as a fantasy QB and a reality QB. Tebow is 3-1 as a starter and has fantasy games of 22.34, 14.18, 24.76 and 17.06 in Athlon’s scoring format where it’s six points for all touchdowns.
Lance Ball, Kendall Hunter and Laurent Robinson lead the waiver wire this week
It’s the last week of byes for the 2011 NFL season. And we lose some powerhouses this week at all four positions. Which means you're going to have dredge the waiver wire to save your team's chances of making the playoffs. Here's a few of the big names that are out.
WEEK 11 BYES: Houston, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Pittsburgh
Laurent Robinson, Chris Ogbonnaya and Roy Helu are the names to get in week 10
We take a bye from the byes for one week before the final four teams get their week off next Sunday. We have our first Thursday night game of the season (Oakland-San Diego) in Week 10. Here are quite a few names you should be able to get off the waiver wire to help you in your efforts to make a playoff push over the final four weeks of the regular season (if you’re postseason begins Week 14).
Carson Palmer, Antonio Brown and Ben Obomanu lead the list of names this week
It is Week 9, the fifth week of bye weeks, and some big names go on vacation this weekend. You need to find someone on the waiver wire to step in and hold down the fort for a week, or maybe more in some cases.
It is Week 8, the fourth week of bye weeks, and some big names go on vacation this weekend, so run to the waiver wire for some much needed help. You need someone to step in and hold down the fort for a week, or maybe more in some cases.
WEEK 8 BYES: Atlanta, Chicago, Green Bay, New York Jets, Oakland, Tampa Bay
It was being reported Friday that Sebastian Janikowski, fantasy football’s second-best kicker, may have to sit Sunday and several weeks thereafter due to a left hamstring injury.
It is not that often that fantasy kickers get any glory as we always tell you to wait until the last or second-to-last pick of your drafts to select the position. But Sebastian Janikowski brings what no other kicker in the league does on a consistent basis - the long ball. If your league awards bonus points for distance kicks, then Janikowski is the man to have. Through six weeks, he already has five 50-plus field goals and 12 field goals altogether.
