Just like last week’s waiver wire, this week does not have any major pickups that will make a significant impact on your fantasy team. The good thing is that there are officially no more bye weeks, so looking to the waiver wire will not be needed as much as previous weeks. Here are the picks for the week:
Donald Brown, RB, Indianpolis Colts
Brown has been playing relatively well for a player on the Colts. He notched 70 yards on 16 carries against the Falcons in Week 9. However, he is a Colt, which means he’ll probably never get a touchdown.
Laurent Robinson, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Starting WR Austin Miles went down once again with a hamstring injury, leaving Robinson to take the starting job from him. Robinson is probably the best value on the wire right now, catching a total of 10 passes for 135 yards and two scores in the last two games. He’ll likely start for the next 2-3 weeks in place of Austin.
Denarius Moore, WR, Oakland Raiders
Making his second appearance on this list, Moore and fellow Oakland wideout Jacoby Ford have been benefitting greatly with QB Carson Palmer tossing them the pigskin. Palmer threw for a hefty 332 yards last game, which is nice looking for any suitors of the Raiders WR corps. It also helps that Moore returns punts, giving him the possibility of another way to score a TD.
Jacoby Ford, WR, Oakland Raiders
Earl Bennett, WR, Chicago Bears
Bennett and fellow Vanderbilt product Jay Cutler seemed to have a nice connection during last Monday’s Bears-Eagles game. Bennett caught a team high five receptions for 95 yards (also a team high) and a score. Stash Bennett for further progress.
Austin Pettis, WR, St. Louis Rams
Pettis is thrust into the starting role due to the ridiculous amount of injuries the Rams’ receiving corps has suffered this year. In addition to losing Danny Amendola earlier in the year, Greg Salas also went down with a season-ending injury last weekend. Pettis should get a fair amount of catches, but don’t expect too much out of him from here on out.
Heath Miller, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers
