Fantasy Check

Wired Up: Week 5


Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall had a breakout game on Sunday night, so it's no surprise he's the top choice on virtually all waiver wire lists. Here are some links to get you started:

Fantasy Guru has Mendenhall first on its waiver wire. Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi also is high on the list, along with teammate Jerome Harrison, whose fantasy value skyrockets with James Davis out for the season and Jamal Lewis nursing a hamstring injury.

Mendenhall and Harrison both make an appearance on Bruno Boys' Pick Them Up report. David Garrard is the only quarterback listed, but he's probably unavailable in most deep leagues.

In addition to Mendenhall and Harrison, KFFL recommends Michael Bush and Justin Fargas, both of whom figures to get plenty of work now that Darren McFadden is expected to miss two to four weeks with a knee injury.

The same cast of characters shows up on Walter Football's list, along with Derek Anderson, Kenny Britt and and Matt Stafford. Walter Football recommends ignoring Austin Collie and Kyle Orton despite solid performances.

Fantasy Pros 911, however, advocates picking up Collie, as well as Mike Sims-Walker. It's doubtful Sims-Walker is available in deeper leagues, but Collie should be available.

I like the report they had. After reading all the ones listed here, they had the most insite.

Bruno Boys was second. I really didn't care of the KFFL one.

Thanks for the quick looks.

I thought the one was the best too. A little bit deeper, a little better analysis than the other.

These are the types of articles I like. It makes it easier for me to find things.
