If you’re wondering whether this article actually provides you with gems for your fantasy teams, consider what our recommendations from last week contributed this weekend.
Jacoby Ford hauled in just one grab before leaving the field with a sprained foot. The good news is that his grab was for a solid 41 yards. Next, we recommended Giants tight end Jake Ballard. He came up with three grabs for 35 yards, not too shabby for a tight end.
Number three on the list was the ever-volatile Reggie Bush. The Dolphins came up with another win and Bush led the way with the game’s two touchdowns. The second most wanted off the waiver wire in our eyes was Cowboys wide out Laurant Robinson. He shined brightest this weekend with 73 yards and two touchdowns.
Finally, last week top billing went to Roy Helu and Mike Shanahan frustrated us as usual. Helu led the ‘Skins with 41 rushing yards, and yet he only had six rushes! The rookie running back also chipped in with three receptions for 13 yards. So even though Helu may have not lived up to the top billing, he did contribute 54 total yards.
So hopefully, this leads to your confidence as we once again reveal the top five most wanted players from the waiver wire this week.
