The last week of bye weeks before the playoff push is coming up. Keep working the waiver wire and building up your team.


5-Star Pickups

Danny Amendola (WR, StL) - Check his stats from this week and previously when he has played; he is the pickup of the week.


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 a 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 three to six catches a week with TD upside, then go with Myers. He's a 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) - If he is on your waiver wire; he is a stash at this point, but looking better each week.

Dennis Pitta (TE, BAL) - Pitta 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 WRs 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 WRs available out there.

Scott Chandler (TE, BUF) - Chandler has been getting many targets from Fitzpatrick but is not going to set the world on fire.

Chris Ivory (RB, NO) - Just looked solid on his long run. There are so many RBs 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.
