Waiver Wire Pick Ups

If you are like me, this was a brutal week for your fantasy team. I lost a handful of players to injury, and this week's waiver wire is especially important. Many of you might be in the market for a new Quarterback, so here are some good options for you:

  • Jeff Garcia (PHI) - He did a pretty good job last week when Donovan McNabb went down, and playing the Titans should have helped him get some rhythm back. It is not definite that he is going to start this week so be weary. I think he will get the nod though.
  • Trent Green (KC) - Many of his owners got frustrated by how long it took Green to recover from his injury and were forced to drop him. If he is still on your waiver wire, pick him up he will be a good addition to your team.
  • Joey Harrington (MIA) - He might not be a permanent solution, but if you are panicking with a short week ahead of us, he is a nice option against a poor Detroit Lions defense.
  • J.P. Losman (BUF) - I'd only pick him up if he is a last resort for you. Losman has a really tough schedule ahead of him (in his next 4 games he plays Jacksonville, San Diego, and New England). That may force him to throw a lot though, but he still would be a risky start.
Other players to consider:
  • Justin Fargas, RB (OAK) - LaMont Jordan could be out for the rest of the season, and any starting running back is usually good to have for insurance. I've like him all season, he is a strong runner and could have some room to run with Aaron Brooks back at QB.
  • Reche Caldwell, WR (NE) - Over the last few weeks he has been emerging as the number 1 WR for Tom Brady. He had 70 yards receiving and a TD last week against Green Bay.
