I say this with somewhat caution, the injuries seemed to have slowed down a bit and injured players are slowing making their way back into roster relevance. One major injury this week was quarterback Nick Foles. He suffered a broken clavicle, so obviously if he was your guy, you should have grabbed Eagles backup Mark Sanchez ASAP. At this point in the season, the waiver wire dries up a bit, but keep an eye out for guys who were dumped because of injury or suspension (Josh Gordon) as they could be valuable “adds” as your team prepares for a playoff push. This week’s “Waiver Wire W” are more week-to-week plays, but could still be of assistance as your lineup fills in to account for bye weeks and injuries.
QB Mike Glennon, Tampa Bay Bucs
There is talk that the Buccaneers might make a change at quarterback and go back to the failed Josh McCown experiment. I think Glennon continues to be the starter and this week he gets one of the worst defenses in football when playing at home vs Atlanta. The Bucs are consistently playing from behind at some point in games, which equals pass attempts for the second year quarterback.
RB Anthony Dixon, Buffalo Bills
It’s looking like Fred Jackson will be out for another week and Dixon is worth a look. In the last start he had before the Bills’ bye, he had 22 carries and will more then likely handle goal line work as well. With Kyle Orton being effective in the pass game, there should be some chances for Dixon. If Fred Jackson was one of your starters, ride Dixon for another week He will at least keep the position competitive for you and is owned in only 18% of Yahoo leagues.

WR Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins
What I see about Landry that makes him a good add is he is running as the clear number two receiver, his quarterback looks more comfortable every week, and he has the look of a good football player; he reminds me a little of Julian Edelman. The Dolphins will have to go to the pass a little more with injuries to their backfield as well. Landry isn’t going to explode every week, but he is a nice WR4 to have on the roster and is owned in only 7% of Yahoo leagues.
TE Mychal Rivera, Oakland Raiders
The Raiders have done it again this season showing that they are terrible, despite adding “upgrades” to their roster in the off-season. However, when looking toward the future, it’s the young guys that are beginning to shine for the team. Derek Carr has been the best quarterback out of this year’s draft and is doing everything he can to use his targets and make this team competitive. He has developed some chemistry with Rivera as of late targeting the tight end 20 times in the last two weeks. Rivera is still a risky start on fantasy rosters, but the volume is there.
