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

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Miami Dolphins (Owned in 66% of Yahoo! Leagues): Over the past four games for the Dolphins, Tannehill has been terrific. He has thrown for nine touchdowns and run for one touchdown as well while only having two interceptions. Despite having no good connection with Mike Wallace downfield, injuries on his offensive line and a stagnant running game, Tannehill has still put up great numbers. On Monday, he faces a New York Jets secondary that has struggled mightily in passing defense. Tannehill will be a low-end QB1 with the ceiling to be a top-10 QB play this week.

Mark Sanchez, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (52% Y!): Despite having six interceptions in the four games (three-and-a-half if you want to get technical) since taking over as the Eagles’ starting quarterback, he has also thrown seven touchdowns. In his last three games, Sanchez has thrown for two touchdowns in each. This week, he is up against a Cowboys’ defense that just got torched by Eli Manning for 338 yards and three touchdowns. Sanchez will be a mid-tier QB1 play this week.

Isaiah Crowell, RB, Cleveland Browns (59% Y!): With Ben Tate out in Cleveland, the running back situation in Cleveland is more clear. Despite Terrance West out-touching Crowell 15 to 12, Crowell had two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, and is showing that he is the more dynamic running back for the Browns. Cleveland is still one of the most run-happy offenses in the league and Crowell should get double-digit carries every week, and that might be all he needs to put up solid RB2 numbers on a weekly basis moving forward.

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Sunday was not the best showing for the Buffalo Bills this season and the scoreboard reflected that with a final score of 35-17 in the favor of the New Orleans Saints. That 18-point differential is the largest margin of defeat for the Bills this season, and Sunday was the first time this year that the Bills did not score 20 or more points.

The story of the game was the major differences between the starting quarterbacks. Bills quarterback Thad Lewis had one touchdown and three turnovers, while Saints quarterback Drew Brees had five touchdowns and zero turnovers.

The Bills stayed with the Saints early on in the game, even holding a 10-7 lead in the first half, but that score did not last as the Saints overpowered the Bills offensively and took home the win.
