Week 8: Waiver Wire

Here are some guys you might want to add if they are still available in your league:

QB Kyle Orton (CHI): Although his past few games have been against some easy defenses, he has looked good. And he should continue to do well enough to warrant a roster spot.

QB Gus Frerotte (MIN): Frerotte has been playing well and is worth a start against easy matchups.

QB Jeff Garcia (TB): Garcia had a huge game against the Seahawks (who are awful), but is worth a roster spot going forward. He does not make many mistakes and is a good bye week fill in.

RB Ryan Torain (DEN): I expect him to be the starter by week 9 or week 10 in Denver. Shanahan compared him to former Broncos RB Terrell Davis. Tough to predict, but I expect big things. Worth the risk.

RB Mewelde Moore (PIT): Rumors are Willie Parker should be back to practice this week, but given how many setbacks he’s had, I would add Moore if you need help this week. He has done well in place of Parker.

RB Pierre Thomas (NO): With Bush out for a month or so, someone has to split time with McAllister. And I think it will be Thomas, who has done fairly well in spot-duty over the past two years.

RB Cedric Benson (CIN): He is not great, but he is the starter in Cincy. And he wil get most of the carries. Which means he is worth owning.

WR Mike Furrey (DET): With Roy E. Williams in Detroit, Furrey steps into the starting lineup. He is definitely worth a roster spot in PPR leagues. But is also good depth in most other leagues.

WR Malcom Floyd (SD): He has played very well while Chris Chambers has been out, and should continue to be involved even after Chambers gets back.

WR Josh Morgan (SF): He had a great preseason, but was slowed by a staph infection. But last week, in his first start of the year, he had 5 catches for 89 yards and a TD. Mike Martz loves to throw the ball, so he could work out pretty well. It might be worth noting that Morgan was the college teammate of Eddie Royal, another rookie WR who is playing very well.

WR Donnie Avery (STL): Speaking of rookies, Avery (the first rookie WR drafted in 2008) has been performing very well lately. And now that the Rams are winning games, they are worth owning.

WR Kevin Curtis (PHI): After missing the first part of the season with a sports hernia, Curtis is finally scheduled to return this week. I do not expect too much from him right away, but he and McNabb did seem to have some chemistry last year.

TE Visanthe Shiancoe (MIN): He will not put up a ton of yards, but he does have 3 TDs in his last 5 games (all with Gus Frerotte at QB). TEs are very hit-and-miss this year. But Shinacoe is doing pretty well — in fact, he is the 6th highest scoring TE. But note that he is on a bye this week.
