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.

Waiver Wire Pickups

Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders (Owned in 4% of Yahoo! Leagues): The young gunslinger is perhaps the only glimmer of hope for Oakland Raiders fans. After throwing four touchdowns against a very tough San Diego defense, he is one of the better options as a No. 2 quarterback for the coming bye weeks. He is building a connection with his bevy of wide receivers and has the chance to put up top-15 numbers every week from here on in.

Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals (30% Y!): After sitting out for more than a month with a nerve injury in his throwing shoulder, Palmer returned Sunday against the Washington Redskins and revitalized the Arizona Cardinals’ passing game by throwing for 250 yards. Arizona loves to throw the ball, and Palmer has good amount of weapons. Pick him up as a streamer quarterback option for bye weeks.

Waiver Wire Pickups

Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants (Owned in 47% of Yahoo! leagues): A 300-yard, four-touchdown game is not something we will see every week out of Manning, especially since he did this against a weak Washington Redskins defense in Week 4, but it is major improvement over what he had done the first three weeks of the season. It took Manning some time to adjust to the new West Coast offense but now that he seems to be making major strides with it, he is definitely worth a look as a QB flier for those going into more bye week trouble moving forward.

Curing That Fred Davis Hangover

By Glenn Gifford

Being a Bills fan is torture at times. I cannot believe how much I wanted Fred Davis to be a Bill. News has just flashed from multiple media outlets that Fred Davis will remain a Redskin for the 2013 season. I get it Fred, you live there, you have an up and coming quarterback in RG3 and you signed a 1 year deal. This one year deal will allow you to prove to the NFL that you have recovered from your Achilles injury and in a year’s time you can hit the Free Agency market again for a chance at a big pay day. All signs were pointing to a Redskins return for Davis. I feel like the Bills were once again “Tyson Clabo’d”. (more…)
