Waiver Wire Hotlist
Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: MSW is only available in roughly 40% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, but you’re advised to make a move if he’s currently listed as a free agent. Sims-Walker has found the end zone in three of his last four games and finally looks to be on the same page as quarterback David Garrard.
Jacob Tamme, TE, Indianapolis Colts: Tamme made an appearance on this list last week and we really hope you followed that advice. If not, check to see if the three-year veteran is still available. Tamme caught six passes for 64 yards and a touchdown on Monday night against the Houston Texans and has a very favorable upcoming schedule. As always, quarterback Peyton Manning makes everyone around him better.
Keiland Williams, RB, Washington Redskins: Clinton Portis has been nursing a groin injury and now backup Ryan Torain is battling hamstring issues. Adding Williams won’t turn your season around, but it’s rare you can find a starting running back available at this point in the season. Keep you expectations in check because we’re still waiting for updates on both Torain and Portis, but go after this guy if you need RB help or have some dead weight on your roster.
Nate Washington, WR, Tennessee Titans: After Kenny Britt went down with a hamstring injury on the fourth play of Sunday’s loss at San Diego, Washington stepped up and posted his best stat line of the season (4-117-1). Somebody needs to catch the ball for the Titans with Britt on the shelf and Washington currently looks to be the most suitable option.
Troy Smith, QB, San Francisco 49ers: Smith is only advised as an option for owners in deeper leagues and even then you should taper your expectations. However, the former Baltimore Raven looked good on Sunday against the Broncos in London as he completed 12 of 19 passes for 196 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. As long as he can keep winning games, the job is his to lose.
Damian Williams, WR, Tennessee Titans: If you can’t land Nate Washington, this is your next best option. With Britt out of commission due to a hamstring injury, Williams’ role in Tennessee is about to get bigger.
Mike Hart, RB, Indianapolis Colts: The former Michigan standout picked up 103 total yards on 15 touches Monday night against the Houston Texans while averaging an impressive 7.0 yards per carry. He went down with an injury at the end of the game, so be sure to keep that in mind. However, with Donald Brown failing to produce and Joseph Addai still banged up, this guy now has a chance to shine.
Randy Moss, WR, Unknown: If the Moss owner in your league drops him due to everything that’s going on, hit the waiver wire faster than Rex Ryan hits the fridge for a late-night snack. There’s always upside with the original straight cash homey.
