I'll spare you the lengthy discussions and elaborate statistical displays in this post. My "Lineup Calls" pieces and the endless parade of radio barking opportunities will dazzle you with impassioned speeches for or against a player along with the requisite bells and whistles.
Let's just get to the heart of the matter and mine for gold.
Tim Tebow, DEN - At times, you wish you could chuck him into the Flex spot or as a RB2. There will be some maddening moments along the way, but he's likely to rush for 40+ every week & assumes the Cam Newton-like goal-line role.
Andy Dalton, CIN - Dalton and A.J. Green are on a roll with Indy coming into Cincinnati. Indy choked away a huge lead to Kansas City in Week 5 by allowing four TDs to Matt Cassel.
Matt Cassel, KC - Speaking of Cassel, the Chiefs are on a Bye. The rise of Steve Breaston (worthy of a roster add) as a strong complement to Dwayne Bowe has me intrigued.
Jackie Battle, KC - New leaked about Battle's possible rise to first chair toward the end of the practice week. He then topped 100 yards to create separation from Thomas Jones and Dexter McCluster.
Earnest Graham, TB - LeGarrette Blount sustained a knee injury in Sunday's beatdown by the 49ers. Graham is also dealing with injuries of his own, but is the more likely back to play at home against the Saints. He's a fantastic receiver, so owners can expect solid returns in PPR leagues.
Delone Carter/Donald Brown - Carter scored a touchdown, but Brown ran well in Week 6 while spelling Joseph Addai. Addai appears unlikely to go this week at a minimum.
Victor Cruz, NYG - Cruz has been a beast for three consecutive weeks. He shouldn't be on the wire anymore.
Darrius Heyward-Bey, OAK - I'll be the first to admit that I was among many wondering if/when Heyward-Bey would ever take a step forward. In Heyward-Bey's third year, you're finally seeing Jason Campbell (waiver worthy as well) throw the ball downfield with regularity to take advantage of his speed options.
Doug Baldwin, SEA - Baldwin has been fantastic in three of the Seahawks' first five games, taking full advantage of opportunities presented because of injuries to Sidney Rice and Mike Williams. It's tough to trust him with the Jackson/Whitehurst tandem at work, but he's definitely roster-worthy in standard leagues.
Harry Douglas, ATL - Julio Jones might be out of action for Week 6 in a huge spot for the Falcons. Douglas would step into the starting lineup.
Ben Watson, CLE - Watson comes out of the Bye in a strong spot against the Raiders.
I'll be back with additional waiver support as we round out the practice week. We'll put on our helmets and dig deep.
