Some interesting names on the wire this week. We are getting down to those crucial weeks and some of you may be fighting for that last playoff spot in a couple of weeks. A majority of these players are players you want to stash and watch for a week, and some are ready to help right now.
QB Colt McCoy- Cleveland Browns
He had 281 yds and a TD, yes he threw 2 int's, but for God sake he was playing against a scary Pittsburgh Defense. If your in a deep league you have to pick up McCoy and watch him grow, I think he's really gonna be something special! As for Delhomme and Wallace, I doubt they see the field the rest of the year, unless McCoy just really stinks it up.
QB Sam Bradford-St. Louis Rams
Proved once again he's not a fluke, if your in desperation mode at QB and by desperation I mean resorting to David Gerrard, Jason Campbell, Max Hall, any Cleveland QB, or Jimmy Clausen then Bradford should be picked up and put in your lineup. If your not in desperation mode and have an available spot for QB's then pick him up now! He's really really good!!
RB Ryan Torain-Washington Redskins
I called it right on last week, well sort of. I predicted that Torain would have at least 100 yds and a TD and by George he had 100 yds and 2 TD's!! Pick him up if he's available in your league's free agent pool. Keiland Williams looked to be the 3rd down back, and could interfere with Torains touches. For now, I'm betting on Washington to stick with Torain, even if Portis comes back.
RB Derrick Ward-Houston Texans
If you have Arian Foster you have got to handcuff Ward. He is a change of pace back and in the last couple of weeks he's found the end zone.
RB Chris Ivory-New Orleans Saints
Maybe the addition of Julius Jones lit a fire under Ivory. He tore up the Bucs defense for 158 rushing yds. When Pierre Thomas returns, Ivory will go back to the bench. If you need a bye week filler pick up Ivory, he should produce for you.
RB Danny Woodhead-New England Patriots
I know Belichick uses the RB by committee approach but Woodhead had 52 receiving yds and 63 rushing yds. Belichick will reward him with more touches. Also, he did this against the mighty Baltimore Defense.
RB Jason Snelling-Atlanta Falcons
If you have Michael Turner, Snelling needs to be picked up immediately.
RB Justin Forsette-Seattle Seahawks
Well Forsette showed that he wasn't going to give up his spot without a fight. He had more yards then Lynch, they both had TD's though. Looks like Seattle will be using the duel threat, Forstette should be a good flex play.
WR Deion Branch-New England Patriots
Welcome back Deion, pick him up start him and watch him shine.
WR Dez Bryant-Dallas Cowboys
He's going to be really good. Possibly like T.O good, he's physical after the catch and has great hands.
WR Kenny Britt-Tennessee Titans
4 straight TD's that speaks for itself.
WR Nate Burleson-Detroit Lions
Burleson put up good numbers Sunday. The Lions offense is clicking no matter who they have at QB. Detroit is on bye this week, keep an eye on Burleson he might end up being a good flex play.
WR Mike Williams-Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Seattle's Mike Williams is creating a chemistry with Matt Hasselbeck. Tampa Bay's Mike Williams is an up and coming rookie with huge upside and is one of those players who should be picked up and stashed away.
WR Danario Alexander-St. Louis Rams
With Mark Clayton out for the rest of the year, Bradford hit Alexander 4 times for 72 yds and a TD. He could be Bradford's new go to man.
WR Davone Bess-Miami Dolphins
Might be a nice play if you need a quick fill due to bye week or injury. He should be last resort though.
WR Michael Jenkins-Atlanta Falcons
First game back he proved to be a threat with 5 receptions for 99 yds. Thank God they don't have to play Philly every week.
TE Heath Miller-Pittsburgh Steelers
Big Ben's back and so is Heath Miller, pick him up ASAP.
