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.

Waiver Wire Pickups

Brian Hoyer, QB, Cleveland Browns (Owned in 14% of Yahoo! Leagues): Despite having a quite pedestrian game on Sunday (20-of-50 passing for 330 yards with one touchdown and one interception), Hoyer finally gets some relief as Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon returns from suspension is fully expected to play Sunday. The No. 1 WR in fantasy football last season will help pad Hoyer’s stats and give him a great target to throw to. Hoyer is definitely worth consideration as a high-end QB2 going forward.

Mark Sanchez, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (53% Y!): Throwing for 346 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, Sanchez’s stats from Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers look better than they really are. Most of it came in garbage time and the whole Eagles team did poorly overall. But because of the offensive scheme and the talent around him, Sanchez is still a low-end QB1 in fantasy football. He has a great matchup in Week 12 against the Titans that could put him right back on track.

Jonas Gray, RB, New England Patriots (19% Y!): The floodgates opened up last night as Gray ran for 199 yards and four TDs against the Indianapolis Colts. He ran on 38 attempts and absolutely controlled the touches in the New England backfield. The obvious replacement for Stevan Ridley (who is he again?) going forward, Gray has high-end RB3 appeal every week and makes for a great flex play as the top RB for the Patriots. He would be great to have with fantasy playoffs happening soon.

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.
