Hello Everybody. Welcome back to another wonderful week of AAF football. Last week I advised you to grab Rashad Ross with your number one waiver add. If you did, you're probably sitting pretty with a win because he went off. The revolving door depth charts for this league leave a lot of quality players unowned in only 8 team leagues. Did anyone see the Phillip Nelson hook shot completion? This league is bananas. Now for the Waiver gems.
De'Marcus Ayers- MeKay is the big name WR on this team that probably went at the top of your drafts. That would be fantastic if SA had a QB that averaged more than 5 yards per average. Woodside's skillset best fits a 5 foot 9 jitterbug who excels at gaining yards after a catch. Last week he turned 8 targets into 8 catches for 80 yards. Pick him up before the blowup game comes.
Tim Cook- Cook exploded onto the scene this week with 14 touches for 77 yards. Pressley is still on the team but this is looking more like a timeshare than T-rich's bellcow status. Cook is a big powerful presence who could really be useful on the goalline.
De'Mornay Pierson-El- Pierson-El looks more like a running back than a wide receiver. Once he has the ball in his hands, he is a violent runner after the catch and always finishes. In week 2, he had 6 targets and 1 carry, turning those into 4 catches for 28 yards and 1 carry for 14. Last week Salt Lakes starting QB, Josh Woodrum was injured. He should return week 3 making Pierson-El much more desirable. I'm following the targets this week and with the expected bump in quarterback play, Pierson-El could be a top 10 WR next week.
