David Garrard – Jac = @SD / 26%
Easily displaying his ability last week, Garrard should not be considered QB garbage in fantasy football leagues right now. If you are looking for a solid backup, and potential spot starter this week, Garrard is the name you should be calling. 200 passing yards and 1 touchdown is very likely this week against a sketchy Chargers defense.
Michael Vick – Phi = @Det / 22%
Matt Cassel – KC = @Cle / 30%
Jason Campbell – Oak = StL / 17%
Matt Hasselbeck – Sea = @Den / 22%
Jimmy Clausen – Car = TB / 1%
Brandon Jackson – GB = Buf / 30%
Jackson has all the makings of being the premier early season waiver wire pickup of the year in all fantasy football leagues this season. Don’t be the one to miss out on all the fun. Put your waiver claim in and pick him up. 75-100 rushing yards and 1 touchdown is very easily within reach for Jackson this week at home against the Bills defense.
Darren McFadden – Oak = StL / 57%
Peyton Hillis – Cle = KC / 9%
Dexter McCluster – KC = @Cle / 45%
Jabar Gaffney – Den = Sea / 40%
With a solid first game under his belt, it looks like the preseason hype on Gaffney may actually have some truth to it. At just 40% owned, Gaffney is well worth picking up if you are looking for a WR3 start this week or if you are just looking to add a solid bench WR for future use. 50-75 receiving yards is likely, with a touchdown possible as well.
Mohamed Massaquoi – Cle = KC / 49%
Jacoby Jones – Hou = @Was / 64%
Legedu Naanee – SD = Jac / 23%
Brandon Tate – NE = @NYJ / 6%
Mike Thomas – Jac = @SD / 7%
Jermaine Gresham – Cin = Bal / 33%
In terms of both short and long term season potential, Gresham is the tight end you want to pick up this week. After last weeks debut, there is no denying that Carson Palmer will be looking to Gresham quite a bit this season. With a matchup against Baltimore this week, Palmer may be looking to Gresham quite a bit for dump off passes. Then after this week, the next three teams the Bengals face are Caroline, Cleveland and Tampa Bay. So if you have the room, take the plunge now and be ready to reap the rewards in the upcoming weeks. All in all, 50 receiving yards is likely this week for Gresham, and offering excellent red zone potential, a touchdown is always within reach.
Marcedes Lewis – Jac = @SD / 30%
Rob Gronkowski – NE = @NYJ / 10%
Aaron Hernandez – NE = @NYJ / 3%
Tony Moeaki – KC = @Cle / 1%
