Fantasy football: Hot waiver wire pickups

FANTASY FOOTBALL BLOG SCHEDULE

Monday - recap of Sunday games, Wednesday - injury report, Thursday-waiver wire report, Saturday-who to start, who to sit

Receiver Deion Branch has been one of the top pickups off fantasy football waiver wires all across the Internet this week since he went to New England. With Randy Moss shipped out to Minnesota, Branch should be a great addition to any fantasy team.
But the guy flying under the radar is Seattle receiver Mike Williams. This guy is still available on many waiver wires and you're missing the boat if you need a receiver and don't pick him up. I added him in three leagues where he was available. Although the Seahawks added Brandon Stokely it will be Williams given the No. 1 WR status. Coach Pete Carroll has gone on the record to say so.

Be advised that Seattle will be an interesting team fantasy-wise from here on out. Pieces are falling into place to make Seattle fantasy relevant again. The addition of back Marshawn Lynch takes some pressure off QB Matt Hasselbeck and the receivers, including tight end John Carlson.
If you're in a points-per-reception league, grab Williams if he's out there.

Other tight ends to add if you need a productive one are Pittsburgh's Heath Miller and Kansas City's Tony Moeaki. Miller has been quiet this season. But the return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger makes Miller extremely valuable. I see at least 50-60 yards and a touchdown for him in Week 6. As far as Moeaki, he is leading the Chiefs in receptions and has produced well.

Call me crazy, but keep an eye on Colt McCoy starting for Cleveland in Week 6. All this guy did in college was win games and he will be pumped for this despite going up against the tough Pittsburgh D. The Steelers will likely win but the Browns will be competitive with McCoy under center.
