They say the most popular player in any given city is the backup quarterback. I don't think there are many fantasy owners who share that sentiment.

This Sunday, we saw a few players step into a more prominent role and shine after players above them on the depth chart went down to injury. If you followed my advice and started James Jones of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, for example, you know what I'm talking about.

But this week, I'm seeing more duds than studs in the backup department. As of now, it's looking like a bare market for those owners searching for value on the waiver wire.

Instead of wasting your waiver priority on one of the below players, however, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. The following guys will only leave you disappointed.
