Week 15: Waiver Wire

Here are some names to consider adding to your roster:

QB Matt Schaub: He played well against Green Bay, but the Texans play Tennessee next week. This is not a good matchup for him. But he looked sharp in his first game back from injury.

QB Kyle Orton: You could do worse. He plays the Saints, Packers, and Texans during the last three weeks of the season.

RB Tashard Choice: The rookie piled up 170 total yards in place of injured RB Marion Barber (toe, calf) against a very stout Steelers defense. Keep an eye on Barber’s status, though. If he is back next week, Choice has very little value.

RB Tatum Bell: Bell will take over the starting RB position in Denver now that RB Peyton Hillis is on IR with a hamstring injury. Be careful, though. RB Selvin Young could also get some carries, and you just never know what will happen in Denver.

RB Pierre Thomas: Oddly enough, he is still available in some leagues.

RB Ladell Betts: It seems like RB Clinton Portis is still banged up and the Skins are going to give Betts a chance to rack up some yards. He had 60 total yards against a tough Ravens defense, but keep an eye on the status of Portis. It is unclear how much work each will get, at this point.

RB Cadillac Williams: Cadillac scored a TD in his second consecutive game. Although he has only averaged 23 rushing yards since returning to the lineup, he might be worth adding to see how the Bucs use him down the stretch.

WR Domenik Hixon: He was the hot waiver wire add last week, so I doubt he is available. But he had a fairly poor showing (although he dropped a long pass that could have turned into a TD), so maybe someone dropped him again. He should do well against Dallas this week.

WR Devin Hester: He is actually playing pretty well lately, and he has some very easy matchups down the stretch (Saints, Packers, Texans).

WR Deion Branch: He had 2 TDs last week and looks to be (mostly) healthy. Plus, he has some favorable matchups coming up (Rams, Jets, Cardinals).
