A trio of players top this week’s list of players to target on the waiver wire. All are players that can contribute as fantasy starters right away. Well, let’s clarify and mention that one of them is a running back for Washington, so that carries some automatic question marks about the long-term value.
We talked about Robinson in this space last week, and since he’s still only owned in 35 percent of online leagues, he makes a repeat appearance. Reports out of Dallas are that Miles Austin will be out for 2-4 weeks, and that opens up a spot in the starting lineup for Robinson. Tony Romo has already shown a likeness for him, as Robinson has caught five passes and a touchdown in each of the last two games. He’s worth owning in all leagues and worth considering in your starting lineup as a WR2/WR3.
Here we go again with the Redskins, coach Mike Shanahan, and a running back. Last week’s running back-du-jour in Washington was Helu, and he didn’t disappoint, going for nearly 150 yards in total offense, including 14 catches out of the backfield. He was on the field for nearly every offensive play, and Shanahan is at least saying that he’ll ride Helu as long as he can. Though many will shy away from Helu due to past performance of Shanahan backs, Helu is worth owning and starting in all formats. At least until Shanny changes his mind.
After finally getting clearance to play, Bennett didn’t waste any time becoming Jay Cutler’s favorite target on Monday night in Philadelphia. He caught five passes for 95 yards and a touchdown, with Cutler looking to him on almost every third down passing play. The Bears offense has been crying out for a go-to guy in the passing game, and a healthy Bennett appears to be that player. He should be owned in all formats and is another player worth considering in your starting lineup as a WR2/WR3.
