Week 5 Solid Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Adds

Week 5 Solid Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Adds...

Quarterback
Marc Bulger, STL
- The Rams have been disappointing, Bulgar gets benched, the bye week, but now Head Coach Jim Haslett has said that Marc Bulgar will the starting QB for the rest of the season, "unless something happens". I am seeing Bulger on the wire in a few of my personal leagues and with the bye week, someone must have dropped him to clear roster space. If this is the case in your league, why not pick up Bulger and stash on your bench in case he ends up finishing the year strong. You'll also have a solid bye week QB where you could catch lightning in a bottle with a good performance. He simply can't be this bad all season long.


Running Back
Mewelde Moore, PIT - The Steelers are all banged up. Willie Parker is out. Rahard Mendenhall is out. Fullback Carey Davis is out. You'd expect the Steelers to rely on the pass, and so does everyone else, but don't be surprised if Moore busts out with a decent game, and by "decent", I mean 75+ yds and a TD. There is no way that the Steelers will be an all pass team. It just won't happen. Plus, Moore has started 11 games in his career and rushed for 100+ yards in 4 of them.

Wide Receiver
Braylon Edwards, CLE - Are you finding Edwards on your waiver wire? Getting trade offers with Edwards from desperate managers? Now is the time to strike. Fact is, no one knows whether or not Derek Anderson is for real, in a slump, or just isn't that good. We don't know if Brady Quinn is ready to step up and if he does, will he create a successful connection with Edwards? We don't know. What we do know is that Edwards is a top-notch recieving talent whose value is extremely low right now. Add in the fact that Cleveland is on a bye week and you just might get the opportunity to buy low on Edwards. I am not saying he'll be a star the rest of the way, but it might be nice to know that you have a surefire weapon stashed on your bench for later in the season!

Tight End
John Carlson, SEA - There was a craze a few weeks back to pick up Carlson for week 3 after two solid weeks receiving. Then in week 3 he disappointed and went to a bye week last week. Now, there he is again sitting on the wire. Scroll down to the week 3 article I did which explains more about Carlson. Fact is, Matt Hasselbeck has struggled, there have been no wide receivers to throw too, especially in week 3. Now with some players coming back, Carlosn may see more open looks. Need a TE this week, why not take a risk on John Carlson.
