Chuckie Keeton is one of this week's top pickups.
They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, right? That theme seems to play out in our waiver report this week as a few listed names below, if available in your league, were probably on rosters at some point earlier this season.
Chuckie Keeton, QB-Utah State
Statistically, Keeton had been rather average from a fantasy point of view throughout the non-conference portion of Utah State’s schedule. However, the sophomore quarterback has thrown for 530 yards, rushed for another 128 yards, and has accounted for eight total touchdowns in two WAC games.
Ameer Abdullah, RB-Nebraska
We’re no longer confident that Rex Burkhead will shake the injury bug that has plagued him for most of this season. If Abdullah is still floating around on the waiver wire, pick him up because he has potential to serve as a solid RB#2 as long as Burkhead stays on the sideline.
Latavius Murray, RB-Central Florida
Murray seems to have reassumed the starting running back spot after his 23-carry performance against Memphis this past weekend. It is very likely that Murray was tossed backed into the waiver pool after his injury earlier in the season. Given UCF’s upcoming schedule, Murray could be a tremendous asset for owners looking to make a late-season surge.
Jordan Parker, RB-Middle Tennessee
We were wondering who would shoulder the load at running back for the Blue Raiders after Ben Cunningham was lost for the season with a knee injury. Jordan Parker rushed for a team-high 66 yards on 13 carries at Mississippi State on Saturday. His modest numbers did not draw any attention and fantasy owners may not even have to put in a waiver claim for the freshman running back.
Antavious Wilson, WR-Marshall
Wilson’s value continues to rise in deep PPR leagues as the senior receiver has caught at least six passes in five-of-seven games this season and has a touchdown reception in each of Marshall’s previous three games.
Josh Schaffer, WR-Western Michigan
Since Tyler Van Tubbergen took over at quarterback for the injured Alex Carder, Schaffer has emerged as the Broncos’ leading receiver, catching 15 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns the past two weeks.
Charlie Moore, WR-Oklahoma St
Moore was a player we had high hopes for before the season began, but he managed only six receptions in the Cowboys’ first four games. The junior receiver should be back on everyone’s radar after hauling in 13 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns the last two weeks.
