Hello everybody, welcome back. I apologize for missing last week and maybe costing you that precious waiver wire gem. While I was gone I managed to fall down the stairs carrying a bowl of soup and did not spill a single drop. A real accomplishment. Another accomplishment I'm looking forward to is grabbing you the best picks on your waiver and getting you to the playoffs. There were some key injuries last week, making a few new starting quarterbacks in case you missed a big one before.
Murray was one of the more well known AAF players, right up there with Dustin Vaughn, Shoelace and Trent Richardson. Murray was a decorated quarterback in college at the University of Georgia. Many expected him to be an above average NFL QB comparing him with Case Keenum. With the injury to Matt Sims, Murray led the Legends to their first win and is primed to become a top 5 QB. With 4.89 wheels you can expect a lot of scrambling and extra yards.
Sankey is a former second round pick for the Tennesee Titans. While he never did anything in the league, he did have the tools to rightfully be highly selected. With underperforming backs Gardner and Watson, Sankey could come right off IR and take over the backfield. If that happens, getting a lead back in the middle of the season would be huge. I wouldn't advise you to play him his first week anywhere except DFS unless you're in a really bad spot.
Some of you might remember Tyms from when he looked like the next big thing the patriots dug up. Tyms is 6 foot 4 and ran a 4.4 back at his pro day. After a spectacular preseason, fans were throwing around the name Randy Moss when Tyms was on the field. A 4 game PED ban erased those thoughts and the people forgot about him. Last week he caught 4 of 5 targets for 32 yards in his first bit of game action.
I have the players listed from most important to least. If you don't have one of the top 2 QBs go get Murray. Tyms would be an above average flex play if you need one and that makes him valuable. Having said that, Sankey could be a league winner if things go his way. Make sure you get those waivers in and lets lock in another big week here at FantasyKnuckleHeads!
