Waiver Wire Pickups

Drew Stanton, QB, Arizona Cardinals (Owned in 1% of Yahoo! Leagues): Carson Palmer is now out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee on Sunday. Welcome back Stanton, who was the starter for a few games at the beginning of the season while Palmer had a shoulder injury. Despite his shortcomings in talent, Stanton has a knowledge of the system and has plenty of weapons around him. He could end up being a serviceable QB2 and plug-and-play starter at points during the rest of the season.

Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants (57% Y!): The Giants are playing bad football right now, but Eli continues to put up decent fantasy numbers (890 yards, six touchdowns and only one interception in the past three games combined) despite losing his #1 WR and #1 RB. Manning seems to be clicking with Odell Beckham Jr. and is reportedly getting running back Rashad Jennings back in Week 11, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, which would give him another target. He has the potential to be a top-15 quarterback weekly and could be someone that Carson Palmer owners look at to replace him.

Waiver-Wire Pickups

Mark Sanchez, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (Owned in 3% of Yahoo! Leagues): Yes folks, I’m being serious. Mark Sanchez is now taking over in Philly for Nick Foles. And because of their offense being high-powered and fast paced, Sanchez is a must-own for Foles owners and anyone else who needs quarterback help. He will throw interceptions (two INTs on Sunday), but he should garner high passing yards (202 yards against the Houston Texans) and touchdowns (two TDs on Sunday).

Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals (61% Y!): Palmer has led the Cardinals to the best record in the NFL and has no shortage of talented pass-catchers. With Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Ellington and others, Palmer is in good hands with the Arizona offense. With a strong arm and veteran experience to boot, Palmer keeps putting up great fantasy points (nine TDs to two INTs in four games) and should be owned by anyone who has a QB on bye this week and/or needs a QB.

As we count down the days until training camps start around the NFL, many fans and teams are starting to analyze the pieces that make up their roster and ask themselves what the season has in store.

After I looked specifically at the Buffalo Bills last week, it’s time to turn our attention to the other teams in the AFC East and examine the questions they have to answer in order to reassure their fan bases that this season might not be one to forget.

Every year in the NFL, players seem to burst onto the scene, grabbing the collective attention of fans and opposing teams.

Last season, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and New England Patriots running back Steven Ridley were among the players who built off of early career performances and exploded in a big way, proving themselves to be legitimate NFL stars and players that opposing teams need to gameplan for.

Predicting who is going to breakout is an inexact science, but certainly a fun game to play. Looking at players’ overall skill sets, college pedigree, brief professional experience and the opportunity presented by their 2013 situation, I’ve selected an offensive and defensive player from each team in the AFC East who I think is primed for a breakout season.

2012 High Riser Team

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Robert Griffin III did more to improve his draft stock than any other prospect this year which is why he is the High Riser of the Year

Every year we see countless media outlets produce countless All-American teams and every year they all look roughly the same with one or two surprises. We have nothing against those lists and in fact enjoy reading and discussing those lists every year. We wanted to create our own All-American team but not really make so much about being an All-American. (more…)
