Marques Colston is back and you might be surprised to find that he'll be out there on the waiver wire in a few leagues! While you're there, see if Danny Amendola is there. Let's see if we can help you out this wee, but first... Here were our recommendations from last week's Waiver Wire Wonders as well as how they performed:
Eric Decker, WR, Denver: 7 catches, 48 yards
Denario Alexander, WR, St. Louis: 2 catches, 28 yards
Early Doucet, WR, Arizona: 5 catches, 50 yards
Javon Ringer, RB, Tennessee: 6 carries, -6 yards / 2 catches, 17 yards
David Nelson, WR, Buffalo: 6 catches, 84 yards
Here are this week's Waiver Wire Wonders:
Bernard Scott, RB, Bengals - Ced Benson's appeal of his three game suspension will probably be taken care of next week and I would be surprised to see Benson come out completely free of a suspension. Because of that, Scott becomes a solid option even though it won't be for the long-term. Keep in mind that Benson will be the starter this week.
Roy Helu, RB, Redskins - The Rams are giving up an incredible 174 yards per game on the ground and the Redskins are a run-first team who will share carries between Tim Hightower and Roy Helu. With Helu's big play capabilities, he could end up having a sneaky big day despite getting shared carries.
Brandon LaFell, WR, Panthers - The Bears game will be an interesting challenge for Cam Newton, but if he "passes" the test like he did against the Packers then LaFell could be in for a solid game. Regardless, with the WR position being picked over, LaFell offers a decent option for fantasy owners.
James Casey, TE, Texans - If you are in a PPR league, Casey is a legit option at this point. The Texans have shown a willingness to target him in the preseason and then again last weekend in his big game vs. the Saints. Casey will be hit or miss from week to week, but he should be a target this week against the Steelers.
Vikings Defense - They play the Chiefs.... so there's that.
