Fantasy Football Waiver:
Starks Your Engine (Week 3)
BEAST DOME NATION.
James Starks is back. Yes, the same James Starks who I told everyone to own last season when Cedric Benson went down. The Packers went straight to Alex Green and were happy enough with his 3 yards per carry. Sunday James broke out as one of the Top 5 RBs having a BEASTLY 120+ Yards and a TD. His long-term success relies on the health of Eddie Lacy. If there is one thing for certain, this could be the start of the RBBC in Green Bay.

RYAN TANNEHILL – QB – MIA
I have been promoting his all Preseason, and now he delivers with a nice 300 Yard game. He is not a Top 10 QB, but he can find himself in the mid 15s more often than not. Add him if you have Josh Freeman.
JAMES STARKS – GB – RB
Hard to say if James Starks is going to be more than a one week wonder, but he does have his chance to make a statement for at least one game. James will likely be somewhere in the Mid-20 Range at RB. See if you can pick him up, at the very least you take him away from another owner. I do not see much long-term potential.
BILAL POWELL – NYJ – RB
The Jets are going to be losing a lot of games, which means Powell will be seeing his garbage time more often than not. Not a bad addition if you are thin at RB. Not a great one either.
JASON SNELLING vs. JACQUIZZ RODGERS
Both players will be splitting time while Steven Jackson is out with his quad injury. Neither player is Must-Own and will be RB#3 at very best, small edge to Snelling because of Redzone touches.
BERNARD PIERCE – RB – BAL
With Ray Rice potentially missing next weeks game, Bernard Pierce is a good addition off the Waiver Wire. If you own Ray Rice, he is Must-Own.
EDDIE ROYAL – SD – WR
At first I was not a big believer on Eddie Royal. When Malcolm Floyd went down for what looks like a season ending injury, you might as well add him. His potential is really #3 WR, but he has been playing like a #1. I would pick him with the upside of being a better Lance Moore.
CHRIS GIVENS – STL – WR
With the way Sam Bradford has been throwing the ball, Givens belong on the bottom of at least one teams bench in every league. He will be inconsistent, but he can get the deep bomb like he’s Desean Jackson. That is about it on him.
ROD STREATER – OAK – WR
Streater may never be a good fantasy play with the way Terrelle Pryor is throwing the football. That can all change at some point this season as Pryor gets adjusted to being a starting QB. Good upside.
CHARLES CLAY – MIA – TE
KICKER OF THE WEEK. VIP Only
For those of you that were afraid TB would be bad, and I warned you that if they do well you will lose them for good. Well now you better re-claim them. Top 6 Unit.
