Here are some waiver wire options that you might want to take a look at before your league counterparts can beat you to the punch.
Each and every year there are a few guys that lay around on the waiver wire for a few weeks before exploding onto the scene and becoming fantasy legends like Ryan Grant from a year ago.
It's important you keep evaluating your talent each week and don't be afraid to drop someone on your roster that has been getting by on name recognition alone.
To those of you who are counting on big games from your players tonight to either seal the deal or play catch-up, good luck. It should be a good one.
J.T. O'Sullivan, 49ers QB - Sullivan had his second impressive start in a row Sunday against the Seahawks and looks to have a good feel for offensive coordinator Mike Martz' system. With Detroit looming next week, O'Sullivan could be a great spot starter for your team or even a good backup to have for a bye week.
Brandon Jackson, Packers RB - All of you Ryan Grant owners out there take notice: that hamstring problem probably won't go away this year. It's one of those injuries that just lingers throughout the season and won't heal until the season ends. Jackson picked up the slack this week (7 carries, 61 yds, TD) and could end up making some mid to late season starts if Grant can't go.
Isaac Bruce, 49ers WR - After failing to make a catch in the season's opener against Arizona, Bruce looked like his old self against the Seahawks with 153 yds receiving. He might be a nice pickup in deeper leagues if you're in need of a wideout.
Darren Sproles, Chargers RB - This kid is simply electric. With LaDanian Tomlinson in and out with a toe injury, Sproles stepped in and made a few jaw dropping plays. He finished with seven carries for 53 yds, and two catches for 72 yds. And one of those catches just happened to be a 62-yard touchdown.
If I'm a Tomlinson owner out there I'm picking this kid up immediately.
Kerry Collins, Titans QB - Despite playing in 50+ mph winds Sunday, Collins managed to go 14-for-21 for 128 and a TD against the Bengals. He looked sharp in relief of Vince Young and the Titans actually looked like a team with a passing game.
The Texans come a calling next Sunday and Collins should do even better.
Michael Bush, Raiders RB - Depending out how bad Justin Fargas' groin injury turns out to be, Bush could assume his role in the RBBC situation in Oakland. Coach-for-now Lane Kiffin game him 16 carries and he made the most of them, running for 90 yds and a TD.
Trent Edwards, Bills QB - Back to back solid outings are starting make the people in Buffalo think big things for 2008. He has yet to throw a pick and has gone for over 200 yds and a TD in both weeks. If you didn't like what you saw from Matt Cassel, Edwards might not be a bad option.
