Kansas' James Sims is one of the top pickups this week.
This week's Waiver Wire may be the weakest of the season in regards to past fantasy performance, but the list offers several names with a lot of fantasy potential over the final six weeks of the season. For those of you jockeying for a playoff spot, do not sleep on anyone listed below because you must assume that your opposition will not.
Trevone Boykin, QB-TCU
Boykin was impressive commanding the offense against Baylor on Saturday and his dual-threat ability adds extra value for owners needing quality depth at the quarterback position.
Taylor Kelly, QB-Arizona St
Kelly has thrown at least three touchdown passes in three consecutive games and has rushed for at least 40 yards in three of his six starts.
James Sims, RB-Kansas
Since his return from suspension, Sims has rushed for 344 yards and four touchdowns in three games and has carried the ball at least 27 times the past two weeks.
Jeff Scott, RB-Ole Miss
Scott has three 100-yard performances to his credit this season and has scored a touchdown in five of the six games in which he has played.
Bronson Hill, RB-Eastern Michigan
When a guy comes out of nowhere and rushes for 283 yards and four touchdowns this late in the season, we’re going to make room on our roster for him, especially when he plays in the MAC
Jeremy Hill, RB-LSU
We know the Tigers are loaded at running back, but don’t leave him on the waiver wire and let someone else have a shot at the talented freshman, especially if you play in a BCS-only league.
Devin Street, WR-Pitt
Street has caught at least ten passes in his last two games and has scored a touchdown in three of his last four. Even better, the junior receiver should continue his hot streak over the next two weeks as the Panthers play Buffalo and Temple.
Richy Turner, WR-Nevada
Turner has caught at least seven passes in four of Nevada’s previous five games and has found the end zone two weeks in a row.
Jordan Leslie, WR-UTEP
Leslie is averaging five catches and 83 yards per game and has scored in four of seven contests. UTEP’s six losses have all been by ten points or more, so expect the Miners’ to be playing from behind for most of the remainder of the season.
