It’s hard to due to roster size in eveyone’s leagues to tell who is on your waiver wire, but here are some pickups that could be out there.

– Josh Freeman- Hide him on your roster for your bye week if you have room.

-Alfred Morris- He was a hot name at draft time so he should be on a roster but if he’s not scoop him up now

-Dexter McCluster- Some sights have him listed as WR and not RB either way he’s a big piece of Chiefs passing game

– Jonathan Dwyer- Mendenhall will be a question mark for a few more weeks

-CJ Spiller- If you picked Fred Jackson you should already have him. If  he’s available pick him up now!!

The Waiver Wire question is the top 3 Wr picks had big weeks ones but are you ever really going to start them over Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson or even Austin Miles? It’s almost fool’s gold unless proven wrong over a few weeks but here are the names

James Olgetree- owned in .2 % of leagues before Wednesday and 87%  after! Gotta love prime time opening games

Stephen Hill- Could be the real deal still would like him in a better situation

James Jones- He’s only good if he gets in the end Zone #3 option if not lower

Alshon Jeffery- Still cautious would like to see his defined role for a few weeks

Martellus Bennett- Former team + prime time equal fools gold

Don’t Let Your Opponent Out Work You!!
