This week we have an abbreviated showcase of our waiver wire pickups. The percentages owned in most leagues are as of Tuesday evening and will change by this time tomorrow. In addition to the five players listed below, also mentions include Zach Miller- TE-Seahawks (we already gave you Charles Clay last week!) and Denarius Moore WR- Raiders (in deeper leagues). Good luck!
1. Donnie Avery-WR-Chiefs- 12% owned

2. Jason Snelling-RB-Falcons– 19% owned

3. Danny Woodhead-RB- Patriots- 36% owned
#39 RB Danny Woodhead can be a serviceable add for those in PPR leagues as he had a team-high seven receptions for 55 yards and five rushes for 31 yards. Photo: Fredrick Breedon/Getty Images
4. Ryan Tannehill-QB-Dolphins- 17% owned
#17 QB Ryan Tannehill could fill in nicely for Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers on byes this weekend. Charles Clay and Brian Hartline bring him the necessary ammo he needs to keep the Fish undefeated. Photo: USPRESSWIRE
5. Alex Smith-QB-49ers- 43% owned

Here’s my roster for this week
Looking good again. Thompkins could lose a bit of his value if Gronk returns (as expected this week) We have Bell in several leagues as well and just hope that the Bears D doesn’t hurt his fantasy day..
Holmes is a FA in my league and so is Edelman, Dobson, and Hartline. I have Ronnie Hillman on my bench.
We like Hartline. Clay and him have a great thing going on with Tanehill. We touted Clay last week in our waiver wire pickups.
Not so sold on Hillman as long as he’s part of that three-headed monster RB corps.
I like Tannehill and Smith. I wonder if Harbaugh is thinking about his move to put Kaepernick in as starter last season. Smith is an effective game manager, and KC is 3-0…
Very cerebral. No picks in three games! Plus a nice 92.1 rating. The move to Kaepernick being the correct decision by Harbaugh will be more determined by what happens this season, his first under center as the full time every week starter. Let’s see how the Niners regroup after the Colts’ stunning victory last week…
Thanks for checking in SJ..
Well, the next question is how long would coach stay with young Kaepernick if he and the Niners continue to struggle?
And, what gives with Eli?? Some real surprises already in the NFL.
