Oh the fantasy football waiver wire, where teams can be rescued or resurrected. Each week we scour for that one player that will be a gem for the rest of the season, an injury filler, or maybe just a guy to fill in on a bye week. Also be on the lookout for bye week players that get dropped by other managers hoping to pick them back up after the bye. In many 10-12 team leagues there may not be much left on the wavier, but with injuries to stars stacking up around the league, some little known players will have bigger impacts.

WR – Marvin Jones
The Bengals have found a number two wide receiver in Jones, he clearly is the better fit over Mohammad Sanu. While Jones won’t top his 4 touchdown performance, he clearly is a redzone target for Andy Dalton. The Bengals have a favorable matchup on a short week against a reeling Miami team and even with multiple targets in the Bengals offense, Jones can be played with confidence as a WR3.
Should be owned in all leagues.
