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

Fred Jackson BUF | RB

With Lynch gone Jackson has moved back into the starting position for Buffalo, and he should have some good value. He is coming off of a career year, and we think he will see a large majority of the carries. Look for Spiller to take away some touches, but we still expect at least 60% of the load to go to Jackson. (about 55% owned)

Marshawn Lynch SEA | RB

Lynch is now a Seahawk, and he couldn’t have been traded to a much better situation. Forsett will continue to get some carries, but we think Lynch will take over the starting job. This isn’t a guarantee, but Lynch needs to be owned just in case he does see a large majority of the carries. (about 50% owned)

Felix Jones DAL | RB

The news broke out late last week that Jones was going to start getting more carries. So how is he still available in so many leagues? Jones had 19 touches week 5 compared to Barber’s 6, so it looks like the starting gig officially belongs to Jones in Dallas. (about 70% owned)

Michael Bush OAK | RB

Bush is not going to make Tom Cable’s life very easy once McFadden comes back. We have always liked Bush more then McFadden and week 5 he showed us why. Bush had almost 30 touches, and he averaged about 5 yards every time he had the ball in his hands. Look for Bush to have value even after McFadden comes back. (about 75% owned)


Brandon Jackson GB | RB

Jackson finally had a decent game, but a lot of his owners had already lost faith and sent him packing back to the waiver wire. Jackson didn’t look they great his first few starts for the Packers, but he is still the starting running back on a great offense. He is going to be streaky, but he will have some more solid games this year. (about 60% owned)

Aaron Hernandez NE | TE

If you are at all looking for a tight end then give Hernandez a shot. With Moss out of the picture someone has to step up, and Hernandez could be asked to do a lot more. He is an athletic tight end, and he could end up being a top 10 fantasy player at his position. (about 55% owned)

Danny Amendola STL | WR

With Clayton hurt and out of the year look for Amendola to get a lot more targets. He had 12 catches week 5 and he is quickly becoming a PPR stud, and he should even have value in standard leagues as well. We think there is a chance the Rams will try to bring someone else in, but even if they do look for Amemdola to continue to have value. (about 25% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Kenny Britt TEN | WR

Britt has a touchdown in each of the last 3 weeks, and he is quickly becoming an interesting fantasy player. He was in the doghouse during the preseason, but he has turned things around and it looks like he could be worth an add. The Titans play the weak pass D of Jacksonville week 6, and he could be in line for another good game. (about 40% owned)

Vincent Jackson SD | WR

Don’t forget the Rams were the front runners when all the trade talks were going on for Jackson. With their best wide receiver now on IR, don’t be surprised if trade rumors pop back up. The trade deadline is only about a week away, so if you have a roster spot pick up Jackson and see what happens. (about 40% owned)

Steve Johnson BUF | WR

We had Johnson in our write up last week, and he had a monster game week 5. He has a touchdown in each of the last 3 games, and he has at least 3 catches every game so far this year. He is heading into a bye week 6, but it looks like Johnson could be the best fantasy wideout in Buffalo. (about 15% owned)

Add to Watch List

Nate Burleson DET | WR

If the Calvin Johnson shoulder injury turns out to be serious, then Burleson could end up having some fantasy value. We don’t think he will have a ton of value, but he will more then likely have some big games. (about 10% owned)

Marcedes Lewis JAC | TE

The Jaguars love Lewis in the red zone. He added 2 more TD’s Sunday, and he now has 5 TD’s for the season. Lewis could be a great bye week fill in if your regular TE has a bye. (about 55% owned)

Owen Daniels HOU | TE

Daniels is slowly getting worked back into the offense has he recovers from his knee surgery from last year. The TE position is so deep this year so more then likely your team already has a decent TE, but he could be a decent bye week fill in if needed. (about 50% owned)

Deion Branch NE | WR

Branch was traded to the Patriots to help fill the void left by Randy Moss. Those are big shoes to fill, and obviously he will not even come close to Moss type numbers. But, he could end up having some value in deeper leagues. (about 5% owned)
