Fantasy football: Hot waiver wire pickups

A week ago, it was Green Bay running back Brandon Jackson who was the hot guy off the waiver wire with starter Ryan Grant out for the season.

This week it's Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas, No. 88. The rookie has been hampered by foot injuries andmissed the first week of the season because of it. On Sunday against Seattle he had an impressive eight catches for 97 yards and a touchdown.

While some fantasy football sites are urging you to be cautious with Thomas since it was only one game, I'm telling you to grab this guy if he's on your waiver wire. He is supposed to be the next coming of Brandon Marshall in BroncosLand. The key item is the Broncos' schedule, which is quite favorable as the season progesses.

Other waiver wire guys to pick up are Houston receiver Kevin Walter, Jets tight end Dustin Keller if he's out there, Oakland receiver Louis Murphy, New England receiver Aaron Hernandez and Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew.

If you're looking for a kicker: if Houston's Neil Rackers is still available he's a double-digit fantasy production threat every week.
