Waiver Wire is our weekly look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Football Forum.

Add in all Leagues

Michael Bush OAK | RB

A preseason thumb injury dropped Bush on many draft boards. He’s back on the practice field and is likely to play in Week 1. While the injury may limit him early in the season, we still like his long-term value much more than Darren McFadden. (about 80% owned)

Jerome Harrison CLE | RB

With Montario Hardesty done for the year with an ACL injury, Jerome Harrison will get the bulk of the workload for the Browns. While Peyton Hillis and James Davis will be in the mix, it looks like Harrison will get a chance to prove he can handle the majority of the touches. (about 75% owned)

Devin Aromashodu CHI | WR

We still think Johnny Knox is the top WR fantasy option in Chicago, but Aromashodu could easily outperform Devin Hester this year. Aromashodu had a strong finish to the 2009 season and with Mike Martz as Bears new offensive coordinator there should be plenty of looks to go around. (about 75% owned)


Clinton Portis WAS | RB

While we don’t necessarily like the Week 1 matchup against the Cowboys, we do think that Portis is worth an add if he was ignored on draft day. Shanahan has a history of success with running backs, but he also has a history of leaving fantasy owners guessing which back will get the majority of the touches each week. Either way, Portis should be owned in all leagues. (about 75% owned)

Carnell Williams TB | RB

With Derrick Ward out of the picture, Williams will get the bulk of the workload to start the season. Despite a history of injuries, Williams did play 16 games in 2009 and appears to be healthy for the start of 2010. Although Kareem Huggins may snag a few touches as the change-of-pace back, it will be Williams’ job to lose. (about 65% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Justin Forsett SEA | RB

Forsett has been named the Seahawks’ starting running back for Week 1. While both Leon Washington and Julius Jones will be involved in the Seahawks’ offense, Forsett has the most fantasy value, at least right now. He’s worth an add, especially in PPR leagues. (about 75% owned)

Tim Hightower ARI | RB

Hightower is listed as the Cardinals starting running back heading into the season. He’ll be sharing the backfield workload with Beanie Wells and both backs will have fantasy value as they will be used in different situations. Although we feel Hightower is worth owning in all fantasy formats, he does have even more value in PPR leagues. (about 60% owned)

Derek Anderson ARI | QB

Anderson beat out Matt Leinart to win the starting QB job for the Cardinals. With all of the offensive weapons in Arizona, including stud wideout Larry Fitzgerald, Anderson could have a rebound season. While he may not repeat his 2007 Pro Bowl performance, he is definitely an intriguing pick and worth an add in most deeper leagues. (about 15% owned)

Leon Washington SEA | RB

We know Forsett is the starter in Seattle, but there is a good chance that Washington ends up having the most value. He can catch out of the backfield, and he looked pretty good last year before he had his leg injury. If both of these guys are available in your league then we still say go with Forsett, but we think Washington has a big upside. (about 30% owned)

Steve Breaston ARI | WR

With the quarterback mess out in Arizona it seems like no one is talking about Breaston. We think the Cardinals will still have a decent offense and Breaston could be a big reason why. There will be so much attention on Larry Fitzgerald every week, which should leave Breaston with many opportunities. (about 75% owned)

Donald Brown IND | RB

We don’t understand why Brown isn’t owned in more leagues. His roll should increase this year for the Colts, and if Addai goes down he could be a stud. At the very least all of the Addai owners out there should pick up Brown for a handcuff. (about 50% owned)

Add to Watch List

Devin Thomas WAS | WR

All of the reports are saying that Joey Galloway is going to start and not Thomas. If this is the case, it will not be this way for long. Thomas will be a starter at some point this year, and we think he could end up being the best fantasy wide receiver in Washington. (about 20% owned)

Dustin Keller NYJ | TE

The tight end position is really deep this year, but we still thought Keller would be getting more love then he is. He ended last year really strong, and there is a good chance he carries that into this year. If you are looking for a second tight end then take a look at Keller. (about 55% owned)

Legedu Naanee SD | WR

All signs have been pointing to Floyd being the most productive wide receiver in San Diego, but don’t sleep on Naanee. It doesn’t look like Jackson is coming back for the Chargers this year, which leaves a lot of yards to go around. We think Naanee is worth keeping a close eye on, and maybe an add in really deep leagues. (about 10% owned)
