College Fantasy Football Week 5: Waiver Wire Second Look

On Sunday, Joe Arpasi took a look at some possible waiver-wire additions (click here).

After further studying the stats from the weekend, today we take another look at some more wire considerations, or guys to at least put on your radar moving forward.

 

Waiver Wire Grab Bag – Week 5 Second Glance

QUARTERBACKS

Ryan Radcliff, Central Michigan

Radcliff is someone to keep on your radar. He threw for 347 yards and two scores against Northwestern, and still has six MAC conference games left on the slate.

Steven Threet, Arizona State

Threet shredded the Oregon defense for 387 passing yards and three TDs. 

He did throw four INTs. If you take out his game at Wisconsin, the Threet is averaging 23 fantasy points per game in his other three contests. 

Pete Thomas, Colorado State

The freshman has thrown for 300 passing yards in each of his last two games. 

Tough matchups await in the coming weeks against TCU and Air Force. If he can survive those battles, he could be someone to watch down the stretch when the matchup is right.

 

RUNNING BACKS

Stevan Ridley, LSU

Ridley has quietly become a solid fantasy prospect, especially in BCS-only leagues. 

How's this for consistency: 19 carries, 17 carries, 19 carries, 20 carries.  He has over 400 rushing yards and three TDs on the season.

Johnathan Franklin, UCLA

After an unspectacular start to the season, Franklin exploded in the past two weeks.  He posted a monster 28-158-3 statline against Houston two weeks ago. 

But that was Houston. 

This week against Texas, Franklin ripped off another good statline (19-118-1).

Vick Ballard, Mississippi State

Ballard put up a solid game against Georgia last week (14-77-2). 

He has scored six rushing TDs on the young season.  But what makes Ballard attractive over the next month is the schedule:  Alcorn State, Houston, UAB and Kentucky comprise four of the next five matchups (Florida is the only bad one in the mix). 

If you are in a TD-heavy league, Ballard is a decent option.

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

Jeremy Ebert, Northwestern

Dan Persa's favorite target just continues to produce. 

He logged a 5-83-2 outing against Central Michigan over the weekend. He now has four TDs on the season. Nice matchups against Minnesota and Purdue are up next. 

Ebert is another excellent BCS-only play or a consideration in deeper leagues.

Torrey Smith, Maryland

It's time to start taking Smith seriously, folks. 

In last week's game against FIU, he doubled his season total in receptions and scored another TD (8-159-1). He now has five TDs on the season and has amassed over 300 yards over the past two weeks. 

Duke is up next.

 

TIGHT ENDS

Ted Bolser, Indiana

All this guy does is score touchdowns. 

Although he only has nine catches over the first three games, four have been for scores.
