Waiver Wire Pickups

Johnny Manziel, QB, Cleveland Browns (Owned in 11% of Yahoo! Leagues): It finally happened. Manziel got his meaningful game action in place of Brian Hoyer on Sunday, throwing for 63 yards and also rushing for a touchdown in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. Head coach Mike Pettine has not named a starting quarterback for week 14, but it’s obvious that Manziel gives the Cleveland Browns the best chance of winning moving forward. Because of his dual-threat ability, Manziel should be seen as a high-end QB2/low-end QB2 moving forward and could be gold for fantasy owners in the playoffs.

Colt McCoy, QB, Washington Redskins (Y!: 5%): Moving onto another QB benching, Robert Griffin III was benched in favor of Colt McCoy in Week 13. McCoy did not lead the Redskins to a victory but had 393 yards passing and three passing touchdowns against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. McCoy has a lot going for him: tight end Jordan Reed is finally healthy, Roy Helu Jr. is a reliable pass-catching running back out of the backfield and DeSean Jackson is not expected to miss any games with a leg injury, according to NBC4′s Dianna Marie Russini. McCoy is a reliable QB2 who could put up a lot of garbage time stats on a weekly basis.

Kenny Stills, WR, New Orleans Saints (Y!: 41%): The main beneficiary of Brandin Cooks’ season-ending injury, Stills has put up two straight great games to help pick up the slack for the loss of Cooks. Stills has caught 13 passes for 260 yards, and one touchdown in the past two weeks. As witnessed on Sunday, teams will make their coverages around Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, making Drew Brees have to look for someone like Stills to throw to. Don’t expect Stills to let up anytime soon, and expect him to keep having great games as the fantasy football playoffs start. He is a solid WR3 with a very high ceiling.


Why Robert Woods Should Be The 2013 NFL Draft’s Best Wide Receiver

The Buffalo Bills initially held the No. 8 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, which was used to select a wide receiver.

That pick was made by the St. Louis Rams, who traded up eight spots with the Bills to select dynamic West Virginia playmaker Tavon Austin.

The Bills could have used that selection on a much-needed wide receiver, but instead waited until the second round. This was a smart move, as a player who will quite possibly be the 2013 draft class’ best wide receiver fell to their spot at the No. 41 overall selection.

USC’s Robert Woods was passed upon for the draft’s 40 picks, which included four wide receiver selections (Austin, Clemson’s DeAndre Hopkins, Tennessee’s Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter).

When the Bowl games were announced the Chick-Fil-A bowl between Clemson and LSU was a game that immediately caught my eye and the only Bowl game I’m looking more forward to watching is the National Title game. This game is the classic matchup between a stingy defense vs an explosive offense. (more…)
