Wire Tap: Stuck on Stuckey
The package of players and undisclosed draft picks that got
Now, almost two months removed from that trade, the Browns are starting to see results from Stuckey, who has fit in better in Cleveland than Edwards has in New York so far.
Last Sunday, Stuckey led all Browns receivers in catches and yards (eight targets). In Week 11 he caught five balls for 76 yards and a score against Detroit.
Stuckey could be a solid pickup for fantasy owners, and may hold value as a fill-in play late in the season, especially in Cleveland's upcoming games against low ranked pass defenses Kansas City and Oakland.
Here are a few other waiver wire candidates to consider...
Stroughter has not caught more than three passes in any one game this season (his best effort being a 65-yard day against Carolina in Week 6). He has gained more attention in the passing game, however, and on Sunday was targeted seven times by Buccaneers quarterback
New England could probably pull the gas clerk in off the street and get him a half-dozen catches, but Aiken's performance against New Orleans was nonetheless an eye-opener.
Here is a look at this week's buy and sell candidates:
No joke. Houston's next three games favor the passing game -- Jacksonville (26th against the pass), Seattle (25th) and St. Louis (22nd). Schaub performed well against Indianapolis, and should have had a third touchdown on a ball
What the heck, if you sold him already buy him back!
Gonzalez was targeted 12 times in the win over Tampa Bay on Sunday, helping him to post his highest catch total (nine) of the year. If
It's been fun, Ricky, but we're afraid the party's over. The Dolphins will host a motivated New England defense next week before consecutive road trips to Jacksonville and Tennessee (both top 10 run defenses). Williams' three straight 100-yard efforts is a remarkable story, but his fade in December will wound those fantasy owners that do not act soon.
Henderson is a big-play receiver, capable of stretching the field. The Patriots had no answer for Henderson on Monday, as he torched them for 116 yards on just three catches. But this is rare, and Henderson is more bust than boom. Fantasy owners hanging on to the Saints' one-dimensional wideout may want to shop him now while New Orleans fever is at an all-time high.
