NFL fantasy wire tap
In the Windy City, once-lost wide receiver
Lloyd is a low-risk pickup as a No. 4 or 5 receiver who has the natural ability to develop into a spot starter. Here are a few other waiver wire candidates for fantasy owners to consider this week ...
Following his no-show performance in Week 1, Jordan earned praise in New England's win over New York on Sunday. His 5.6-yard per carry average was better than the other Patriots backs, namely
Through two games Camarillo has been the Dolphins most consistent receiver. He caught three balls in Week 1 and led Miami with four catches (49 yards) in Sunday's loss to Arizona. The Dolphins are not a team that is going to go wild on the scoreboard but they will undoubtedly need to throw a ton this year due to the likelihood of playing catchup more often than not. That could be a good thing for Camarillo, and for fantasy owners in search of bench depth at the position.
Edwards completed an amazing 80 percent of his attempts on Sunday, but that's not why fantasy owners might want to make a move on the second-year quarterback. In Week 3 he faces the Raiders at home before heading to St. Louis the following week to light up the league's lowest-ranked pass defense. In Week 7, Edwards has a date with a San Diego defense currently allowing 293.5 passing yards per game, second only to St. Louis. The future is bright for Edwards, and fantasy owners should get on board for the ride.
An ankle injury to
Rivers is not to be given away, but if the value on the table is good,a trade would be advisable. The San Diego quarterback led the league in passing for Week 2, but 377-yard days won't be plentiful in Rivers' future. For one, this is a team that relies heavily on the running game, and against Denver it was absent; that won't be the case most weeks. Also, Rivers has reached the 300-yard mark just twice in each of the past two years. He's a mid-level fantasy quarterback coming off of a career day -- sounds like a good time to trade up for someone more reliable week to week.
Jones' 127-yard day against San Francisco on Sunday was typical of the 27-year-old back, who has never been consistent for fantasy owners. And while there will be those fantasy owners excited by the idea of Jones being the Seahawks feature back now that
Hmmm ... four catches for 153 yards and a touchdown. Could it be that Bruce is back to his old self, or that he simply had a remarkable week? The latter seems more likely. Seattle's pass defense has struggled so far this year, which could explain the outburst. And Bruce's age has slowly been catching up to him (specifically his hamstrings) so fantasy owners can no longer expect consistent numbers. If someone in your league is willing to pay a fair price for the 35-year-old wideout, it'd be wise to bail on Bruce now.
