Wire Tap: It's never too late
A week ago,
With so many Browns players dealing with injuries, Moore could be a quiet savior for fantasy owners in the final weeks of the season.
Here are a few other waiver wire candidates to consider ...
Hey, why not? In Week 12 Buckley was given a goal-line carry in the fourth quarter that tied the game against Washington. On Sunday, against Atlanta, the first-year back out of Tennessee-Chattanooga carried eight times for 33 yards. The Eagles are experimenting with different backfield combinations as they make a run for the playoffs. Buckley is no
Long has been a bit player in Kansas City's passing game this year, the only real highlight being an eight-catch, 74-yard effort in Week 9 against Jacksonville. This past Sunday, however, Long showed potential, if for nothing by having eight balls thrown in his direction. Only
No, not that
Coming off his first loss of the season, Young's asking price should be down from where it was. Now is the perfect time to pounce. The Titans have three winnable games remaining, and the schedule should favor strong play for Young. The Dolphins, Seahawks and Rams all rank in the bottom half of the league in pass defense. Only the Chargers could present problems, and even they are a mid-level unit in terms of touchdown passes allowed and completion percentage. If you are not on board already, it's time to show a little faith in Young.
Life could be worse for the Rams' only legitimate offensive weapon. Dealing with injuries that have caused him to miss practice time over the last few weeks, Jackson has still performed well for fantasy owners on Sunday. In the next four weeks he'll face four middle-of-the-road run defenses. Of them, only San Francisco should strike fear. And Jackson will get another crack at an Arizona club that he rushed for 116 yards and a score on only a few weeks ago. Jackson should have a strong finish for a pathetic Rams team competing for the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.
The biggest passing play of Heap's night on Monday was the one
Over the past four games, Manning has thrown seven touchdowns and has averaged more than 250 passing yards. Not bad. In December those numbers are going to head south, however, and it's time for fantasy owners to bail last second, if possible. The Giants finally found their running game in last weekend's win over Dallas, and as much as they'd like for Manning to guide them into the playoffs, the matchups suggest it'll be tough going for the Giants passing game. Manning struggled against Philadelphia in the first meeting this year, and Carolina's pass defense has allowed just 12 passing touchdowns all year. And the season finale against Minnesota won't be a treat for New York's signal caller, either.
Do what you want, but there is reason to believe Marshall-the-Great will struggle in these final weeks. His next two opponents (Indianapolis and Oakland) rank among the top five in the league for fewest passing touchdowns allowed, and a date with Oakland means Marshall will have to lock horns with all-world corner
Bess has a bright future in Miami, as he has slowly emerged as the team's primary receiver for
