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

Dustin Keller NYJ | TE

We have loved Keller the entire season, and it’s time for him to be universally owned. He is obviously the favorite target of Sanchez, and it looks like he could even become a top 5 TE this year. Even if you’re already set at TE pick up Keller for instant trade value. (about 65% owned)

LeGarrette Blount TB | RB

Blount is far from a guarantee, but we really like this guys upside. He looked great on Sunday with his 6 carries for 27 yards and a score. Williams has looked terrible so far this year, and we would be shocked if Blount doesn’t get a bigger work load week 5 after the Bucs bye week. Picking up Blount is a gamble, but in our minds it’s a great one. (about 5% owned)

Kyle Orton DEN | QB

Kyle Orton is second in the league in passing yards right now. Let me repeat that in case you missed it, Kyle Orton is second in the league in passing right now. Almost every wrote this guy off coming into the season, but he is proving a lot of people wrong. He does have a few tough games coming up, but we think Orton could end the year as a top 15 QB. (about 70% owned)

Peyton Hillis CLE | RB

It’s going to be really hard for the Browns to take carries away from Hillis after his performance week 3. Harrison will probably be back week 4, but we think Hillis will still get the bulk of the carries. At this point it looks like Hillis could be a great pick up. (about 45% owned)


Add in Deeper Leagues

Kenneth Darby STL | RB

If we had to guess we would say that Jackson will miss at least 1 week with his groin injury. This would open the door for Darby to start against the Seahawks. Darby looked ok on Sunday with 49 yards and a TD, so you might think about picking him up just in case Jackson misses time. (about 5% owned)

Marshawn Lynch BUF | RB

For the second week in a row Lynch has received the majority of the carries. It is still a mess out in Buffalo, but it looks Lynch is the guy to own as of now. There is also the the chance that he gets traded, and if he goes to the right situation he could have a bump in value. (about 25% owned)

Mike Tolbert SD | RB

It is still up in the air if Mathews will be able to play week 4. If he is unable to play look for Torain to get a decent amount of touches. Torain had a decent game on Sunday, and he could be worth a start week 4 against the Cardinals if Mathews is still on the sidelines. (about 65% owned)

Ryan Torain WAS | RB

It looks like there could be the beginning of a battle at the running back position in Washington. Portis is just not the running back he used to be, and he is going to start losing carries to the 24 year old Torain. The question is, how many carries? We think Torain could end up being the starter at some point, and he is worth a roster spot in a lot of leagues. (about 5% owned)

Laurence Maroney DEN | RB

Maroney received the majority of the carries with Moreno being out, and he also got the goal lines. Moreno is going to miss at least 1 more week, which makes Maroney a decent pick up if you are looking for a RB. They play the Titans and Ravens in week 4 and 5 which aren’t the best matchups, but Maroney should get a decent amount of touches. (about 40% owned)

Maurice Morris DET | RB

Best injured his toe on Sunday and he could miss some time. It looks like Morris would take over the starting job if Best was to be out week 4. The Lions are going up against the Packers, so it isn’t the best matchup but he could be a decent spot start if you are in a pinch. (about 5% owned)

Jabar Gaffney DEN | WR

The Broncos passing game has been way better then people expected, and some fantasy WR’s are emerging. Gaffney racked up an impressive 12 catches for 140 yards on Sunday, which obviously has caught our attention. The Broncos schedule doesn’t look so good over the next 3 weeks, but Gaffney is still someone that might be worth picking up. (about 30% owned)

Demaryius Thomas DEN | WR

Thomas didn’t have another huge game on Sunday, but he did manage 2 catches for 43 yards. Out of all the Denver WR’s we like Thomas the most, and he is worth a roster spot in a lot of leagues. We aren’t sure if Orton and the Broncos can keep this up, but if they do look for Thomas to end the year with decent numbers. (about 65% owned)

Brandon Lloyd DEN | WR

Lloyd’s numbers so far this year are somewhat unbelievable. He has been in the league since 2003 and he has never really shown this type of talent. We aren’t saying fluke just yet, but we want to see more before we drop a more proven player to take a gamble on Lloyd. But we do think he is a decent gamble if you a have a roster spot that you can use. (about 30% owned)

Dexter McCluster KC | RB/WR

McCluster in our opinion is only worth owning in leagues that count return yards, but Kansas City is finding many different ways to get him the ball. McCluster is an exciting player, and he should make many highlight reels this season. He will more then likely be inconsistent, but he should be good for about 1 big play a week. (about 40% owned)

Mario Manningham NYG | WR

Manningham had his third straight solid game, and it’s time for him to be picked up. We don’t think he will have a huge season, but his consistency so far this season is a nice surprise. (about 60% owned)

Jacoby Jones HOU | WR

Reports on Andre Johnson say that he might miss week 4 against the Raiders. This would make Jones a great option for your starting lineup next week. The Texans are still going to throw the ball, and we think Jones could have a nice day if Johnson is out. (about 65% owned)

Louis Murphy OAK | WR

We talked about Murphy last week as a guy to keep an eye on, but now it’s time to pick this guy up. He is the favorite target of Gradkowski, and he should continue to have some solid games. With a matchup against the Texans next week, he should be in a lot of teams starting lineups. (about 30% owned)

Roy Williams DAL | WR

Williams had a monster game on Sunday but we are saying this is a fluke. He hasn’t had a game like this in years, and we don’t think it will happen again this year. If you are desperate for a receiver then take a gamble, but don’t expect any more games like this. (about 30% owned)

Add to Watch List

BenJarvus Green-Ellis NE | RB

Don’t get too excited about the numbers from Green-Ellis week 3. Fred Taylor got hurt during the game, and the Patriots spread out their carries way too much. We think Green-Ellis does have an upside, but the Patriots run game is too unpredictable. (about 10% owned)

Lance Moore NO | WR

Lance Moore had a monster game week 3 and he will probably get picked up in a ton of leagues. However, we only suggest picking him up in deeper leagues. The Saints spread the ball around way to much for him to be consistent, and these big games aren’t going to happen too often for Moore. (about 10% owned)

Kenny Britt TEN | WR

Britt continues to slowly get involved with the Titans offense, catching his first touchdown of the season on Sunday. He didn’t have a huge game, but it was nice to see him in the endzone. We think Britt is the Titans best WR, and he could have decent value at some point this year. (about 40% owned)

Bruce Gradkowski OAK | QB

It looks like Gradkowski will keep the starting job for at least one more week, and with a matchup against the Texans this could be a good situation for fantasy owners. If your QB has a bye or a tough matchup, Gradkowski could be a decent pickup and play for week 4. (about 10% owned)
