Week 2 Waiver Wire Garbage Grab With the Trashman

Garbage Grab week 2
Dorian Trashman Colbert, rosterwatch.com

So it’s week two, and you need some dumpster diamonds to fill in for some injured stud adversely affected by the lockout, or for insurance for someone who may or may not play this weekend. i just may have what you need. The following are guys who come at anything but a premium. Some you can play now, others you may have to sit on for a bit. Either way, you’re not gonna pay a lot for a Trashman pick.

Chad Henne QB Miami Dolphins: Yes, we all know Tom Brady had an amazing  game last Monday, but fewer paid attention to what the opposing QB did. Henne had over 400 yards passing, three tds, and almost sixty yards rushing against the Patriots. He may not do it again all season, but wouldn’t you like to be the owner who plays him if he does?
Jerome Harrison RB Detroit Lions: Harrison didn’t have a breakout game last Sunday against the Buccaneers, but he does look like the guy(not Maurice Morris) to own if Jahvid Best goes down, which might well be the case with his injury history and proposed workload. He shoed glimpses of greatness in Cleveland, and could burst back on the scene in Detroit before you can blink.

Mohamed Massaquoi WR Cleveland Browns: We’ve been hearing so much about Greg Little coming into the season that everyone seems to have forgotten the Browns’ number one receiver. Just shy of 80 yards last week, Massaquoi only stands to get more confident with up and coming QB Colt McCoy at the helm. It doesn’t hurt that Indianapolis, their opponent this week, gives up the ninth most fantasy points to receivers.  Owned in only 8% of Yahoo leagues, this guy is a steal right now.

Donald Jones WR Buffalo Bills: Wha what? a WR in Buffalo worth owning other than Stevie Johnson? I think so. Jones was targeted in the red-zone twice last weekend, converting once, and was on the field for 25 mors snaps than David Nelson, the “no.2”. With Fitzpatrick serving out footballs like peak form Pete Sampras, I would wager than Jones will catch his fair share of them, and several for touchdowns.

Earnest Graham RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers: If you’re wondering where LeGarrette Blount was last week, he was warming the bench for Earnest Graham. While Graham won’t always be useful, he is the Bucs’ go to guy whenever they are behind, which may be often, or on passing downs as Blount is not a great blocker. Proceed with caution, but if you’re in a pinch, there are worst moves you could make than to roll with this guy.

Dexter McCluster WR/RB Kansas City Chiefs: Thomas who? That’s right, McCluster looks like he could be the Yin to Jamaal Charles’ Yang. In fact, if Charles starts to falter, this little guy could just steal his job. McCluster was on the field 28 times to Charles’ 35, and you can still play him as a WR or RB in many leagues. He could be like  a Desean Jackson who runs the halfback toss. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.
