It's time to make your move, Brainiacs. The playoffs are right around the corner and Adam Filadelfo (@Frostt24) is back to talk about possible roster modifications heading into week ten.
It's time once again to hit your waiver wire to get those coveted free
agents to help your fantasy team reach the playoffs. At this point in
the season, every move (good or bad) holds extra weight and owners will
be looking for every little advantage that they can find. The waiver
wire is the place where fantasy championships are won or lost.
Nick Foles- There's a good chance Nick Foles is already owned in most
leagues but if he isn't, quarterback needy owners should grab him
immediately. The only downside to Foles is it isn't certain he remains
the starter once Vick is healthy enough to return but seeing how Foles
just tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in a single game,
it's hard to see Chip Kelly going with Vick even if he is healthy enough
to play. On the season, Foles has passed for over one thousand yards
and thirteen touchdowns to zero interceptions.
Aaron Dobson- It looks like Tom Brady may finally have a dependable
receiver from his rookie receiving corp. Dobson played ninety percent of
the snaps in week nine and did not disappoint. He finished with five
receptions for one hundred fifty yards and two touchdowns. Dobson should
be added as it appears the Patriots are starting to get healthy on
Case Keenum- At this point in the season, it's apparent that Matt Schaub
will not be getting his job back with the Texans. Case Keenum played
well enough in week nine that he deserves to be the starting quarterback
going forward. Week nine saw Keenum pass for three hundred fifty yards
and three touchdowns. He's even made Andre Johnson fantasy relevant
again. Through two starts, Keenum has thrown for six hundred twenty one
yards and four touchdowns. There may be growing pains with Keenum but
for owners in need of a starting signal caller, Keenum can be the savior
to your fantasy season.
Riley Cooper- As long as Foles remains the starter in Philadelphia,
Riley Cooper should continue to produce. Week nine saw Cooper finish
with five receptions for one hundred thirty nine yards and three
touchdowns. Through nine weeks, Cooper has four hundred fifty three
yards and five touchdowns. While he won't have games like week nine very
often, he does remain a receiver four with three upside as long as
Foles is under center.
Jerricho Cotchery- Don't let his week nine performance fool you. Aside
from his seven receptions for ninety six yards and three touchdowns in
week nine, Cotchery has been forgettable for the first eight weeks.
Before this week, he had only two touchdowns and averaged just over
three catches per game. His performance was based more on Big Ben
throwing almost fifty passes.
Saints DST- Last week the Saints allowed 26 points to the Jets without getting a pick, a fumble recovery, or a defensive touchdown. They only managed two sacks and in many formats only produced one fantasy point. This week they've got the Dallas Cowboys, which is obviously a dramatically more difficult matchup. In ESPN leagues their ownership is actually up 5% this week, but you do not want any part of these guys this week.
