This week’s latest dumpster diamonds, straight of your waivers and hopefully into your lineups.
Kirk Cousins QB, Redskins: RGIII is a no go, and Cousins will get the start. We’ve loved Cousins from the get go, and he should fill in adequately for the time being. Don’t be afraid to use him.
Tony Scheffler TE, Lions: Scheffler was already a focal point with Ryan Broyles and Titus Young Sr. inactive. Now that Brandon Pettigrew is out, the able veteran will be the no.2 option in Detroit behind Megatron.
Russell Wilson QB, Seahawks: Last week was disappointing. He had only ten fantasy points in a 51 point blowout of the Cardinals, but Wilson will bounce back this week in a big way versus Buffalo.
Greg Little WR, Browns: Josh Gordon is the deep threat in Cleveland, but Little is still seeing a healthy number of targets. He had 70 yards and a td last week, and should put up similar numbers this week in a reinvigorated Browns offense.
Mercedes Lewis TE, Jaguars: Lewis put up a dud against the Jets last Sunday, but he will bounce back against a Miami defense that is susceptible to tight ends.
Jon Baldwin WR, Chiefs: Dwayne Bowe to IR means this is Baldwin’s team for the taking if he wants it. He’ll get plenty of opportunities to prove himself against a burnable Oakland team.
Marlon Moore WR, Dolphins: One man’s loss is another man’s gain, and Moore will gain a healthy dose of targets in the absence of Davone Bess this week.
Bernard Pierce RB, Ravens: The rookie makes good every time he gets the ball in relief of Ray Rice. Coach Harbaugh wants to use him more, and a new offensive scheme courtesy of Jim Caldwell may just implement his wishes.
