FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE: HIS NAME IS JONAS (WEEK 8-9)
FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE:
HIS NAME IS JONAS (WEEK 8-9)
BEAST DOME NATION.
If you are like much of the BEAST DOME NATION. Arian Foster and his 3 TD performance led you to an easy victory in Week 8. While many of you are still fighting in MUST-WIN mode, there are a few good free Agents that fell to everyone in the Fantasy Football World. All of these players are good adds and should be picked up in just about every 12 man league that has a deep bench.
MICHAEL VICK – QB – NYJ
It only took Rex Ryan 7 losses to finally make the switch to Michael Vick. The Jets waited too long to make this switch as this is now purely a Fantasy Football situation for the Jets moving forward. Michael Vick will make this offense dynamic right away and everyone from CJ2K to PERCY HARVIN will all see a boost in production. Michael Vick has a tough matchup against KC this upcoming Week 9, but a QB everybody should stash if you are desperate for a backup. 100+ Yards rushing is never out of the picture for Vick.
JONAS GRAY – RB – NE
The Patriots are going to use Jonas Gray as if he were Stevan Ridley. After tearing up the Bears for 86 Yards on 17 Carries, the sky is the limit for Gray as he cannot be tackled when defenses spread wide for the Patriots passing attack. Jonas can easily be the Steven Jackson that everyone is waiting for and probably benched Week 8, and then the TD comes. Regardless, Gray has nice RB #3 potential moving forward as he will see double-digit carries every week moving forward. I would still rather have Steven Jackson as the Falcons offense finally showed some life again.
CHARLES SIMS – RB – TB
There is rumor that Doug Martin is going to get traded. If that happens Charles Sims will have a clear path for the RB spot in Tampa. If Doug Martin does not get traded, look for a 3 headed monster with Doug Martin still leading the way. Tampa is not coverting any 3rd downs which leaves any Tampa RB with low-end potential moving forward. For now, keep an eye on Sims/Martin, but do not make it a priority to add him unless you see a trade go through.
BRANDON LAFELL – WR – NE
LaFell has been solid for about 4 Weeks in a row now and can officially be a WR #3 in all Fantasy Leagues moving forward. He is quickly becoming a favorite option of Tom Brady and leaving Julian Edelman as the #3 WR in the Patriots offense behind Gronk. LaFell has always been explosive and is showing what he can do with a superstar QB instead of the wild Cam Newton. LaFell should be owned in nearly every league.
KENNY BRITT – WR – STL
Britt is going to have the green light to run the show for the Rams now that Brian Quick is done for the year. No expert ranked Britt higher than myself after I loved his potential with Shaun Hill. While Austin Davis appears to be the QB until the end, he will have to get chemistry with Britt at some point this season. When the matchups are good, Britt has been productive. Look for a great 2nd half and close to the season as Britt should be a huge factor on all playoff teams.
AUSTIN SEFERIAN-JENKINS – TE – TB
Looks like the Bye Week was all about making Brandon Myers out of the picture and letting Jenkins run away with the TE job. Jenkins has HUGE size and is an immediate big-time threat in the Bucs passing game. Huge fumble ended up costing the Bucs this past week, but he will continue to get all the targets he can handle. Jenkins can easily be a Top 10 TE to close out the year and is a must-add in all leagues.
