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

Dexter McCluster KC | WR/RB

I don’t think McCluster is going to get the most carries now that Charles is out, but he is now their best playmaker. I expect around 15 touches a game, and with the dual position eligibility his value is even higher. He is a must add in all leagues, and in my opinion it’s worth using a #1 waiver number to get him. (about 30% owned)

Thomas Jones KC | RB

I think McCluster has the bigger upside now that Charles is out, but Jones is going to get a lot of touches. Jones will also get most of the work around the goal line. He still has some left in the tank, and he should be able to have some solid games this year if he can stay healthy. (about 40% owned)

Daniel Thomas MIA | RB

Someone please explain to me why Thomas is only owned in about half of fantasy leagues. He was drafted to potentially be the running back of the future for the Dolphins, and he is behind one of the most brittle players in the NFL. It looks like Thomas is going to get enough touches even without a Bush injury. Thomas needs to be owned in all leagues, and he could have nice value this season. (about 55% owned)


Devery Henderson NO | WR

Henderson continues to put up solid numbers with Colston sidelined. For the second straight week Henderson was over 100 yards, and he has found the end zone both weeks as well. With matchups against Houston and Jacksonville the next two weeks, things just keep looking better and better. (about 65% owned)

Ben Tate HOU | RB

Foster had a setback with his injury and he could be missing more time. Tate has taken over has the primary backup for Foster, and should be owned by all Foster owners at this point. Tate has looked great so far this season, and he could be a nice temporary solution. (about 65% owned)

James Starks GB | RB

Starks is another guy that I am shocked to see how many leagues he is still available in. He has a great chance of taking over the time share in Green Bay. He has looked way better than Grant so far, and should be a big part of that high powered offense for the rest of the season. (about 70% owned)

Delone Carter IND | RB

The timeshare in Indy continues to be about a 50/50 split, but we think Carter could end up taking over as the lead back. The Colts look like they aren’t going to be making the playoffs, so eventually they might move more towards their young running back to see what he can do. All Addai owners need to add Carter for insurance, but even if you don’t own Addai he is still worth a roster spot in pretty much all leagues. (about 20% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Jerome Simpson CIN | WR

We were high on Simpson coming into the year, and after two weeks of the season is he is looking pretty good. The Bengals offense is extremely young but they have been fairly productive so far this year. It looks like Dalton could be the real deal, and I think the Bengals offense will only get better as the year goes on. (about 20% owned)

Fred Davis WAS | TE

Davis is quickly becoming a huge weapon for the Redskins offense. For the second straight week he been the Skins leading receiver, and he got his first TD this week against the Cardinals. Cooley is still going to be in the mix, but the Redskins would be stupid to not involve Davis as much as possible in their offense. (about 20% owned)

Roy Helu WAS | RB

Hightower has looked pretty good this year, but I am still thinking that Helu might have more value when it counts the most. He did a lot with his 13 touches against the Cardinals, and look for the Skins to slowly get Helu more involved. Hightower owners should consider picking up Helu just for some extra insurance. (about 25% owned)

Eric Decker DEN | WR

The Denver receivers are dropping like flies, and this has open the door for Decker to have some value. Lloyd is still banged up and Royal went down with what appears to be a serious groin injury. Decker took full advance of the playing time against the Bengals with 2 touchdowns and over 100 yards. He is a great short term pickup with the potential of offering long term value. (about 15% owned)

Lardarius Webb BAL | CB

Webb continues to rack up the tackles for for the Ravens defense. He already has 19 solo tackles on the year, and he has big play potential as the Ravens main punt returner. This makes Webb an extremely interesting player in IDP leagues that count return yards. (about 10% owned)

David Nelson BUF | WR

Nelson is turning into an interesting young receiver, and it’s time to start picking him up in some leagues. He ended last year with a touchdown in each of his last three games, and he has carried that momentum into 2011. The Bills offense appears to be solid this year, and Nelson could be in line for a breakout season. (about 5% owned)

San Francisco SF | DEF

The 49ers play the Bengals week 3 and I think their defense could get decent fantasy points. The Bengals have looked a lot better than a lot of people (including myself) were expecting, but they could have a hard time moving the ball next week. (about 60% owned)

DeMarco Murray DAL | RB

The rookie running back is slowly starting to get more involved with the Cowboys offense. Felix Jones separated his shoulder week 2 and he could miss some time. It would be a timeshare between Murray and Choice, but the rookie should get plenty of touches including the goal lines. (about 10% owned)

Kevin Ogletree DAL | WR

The Cowboys are banged up on offense, and this is going open the door for some of the young receivers to step up. Ogletree doesn’t have longterm upside this season, but he could be serviceable while Austin is out. (about 5% owned)

Keep an Eye on

Denarius Moore OAK | WR

Moore had one of the best catches you will see all year week 2, and he may have earned more playing time. The Raiders receiving corp is very crowded, but Moore is clearly one of the most athletic guys they have at that position. He is worth an add in really deep leagues, but I am not sure he will have much value if everyone is healthy out there. (about 15% owned)
