Found September 10, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
A look at players who are likely riding your waiver-wire who could be worth an add if you need a player to fill in for an injury, or a busted draft pick. A lot of these guys have very easy schedules coming up so if you're panicing over Roddy White, Danny Amendola, or Shane Vareen maybe one of these guys can help you out...Alex Smith (QB SD) 198 yards, 2 TD, 0 INTKansas City has the 3rd easiest strength of schedule for QBs over the next 4 weeks.Philip Rivers (QB KC) 213 yards, 4 TD, 1 INTSan Diego has the 4th easiest strength of schedule for QBs over the next 4 weeks.Julian Edelman (WR NE) 78 yards, 7 REC, 2 TDAs of right now, Edelman is Brady's only healthy ball-catcher who has more than 30 career catches.Rueben Randle (WR NYG) 101 yards, 5 RECDefinitely competing with Hakeem Nicks for a starting job on the team going forward. Eli seems like to like him.Brian Hartline (WR MIA) 114 yards, 9 REC, 1 TDNot sure that Wallace is getting any better and the Dolphins have the easiest strength of schedule for WRs over the next 4 weeks.Marlon Brown (WR BAL) 65 yards, 4 REC, 1 TDPretty much has won the starting job opposite Torrey Smith while Jacoby Jones is out.Andre Roberts (WR ARI) 97 yards, 8 RECPalmer seems like the real deal in Arizona and he can't throw everything to Fitz.Fred Jackson (RB BUF) 108 yards, 4 RECSeems to be a favorite target of EJ Manuel and could even take some touches from Spiller over the next few weeks.Legarrette Blount (RB NE) 15 yardsVareen is out for at least half the season and Ridley can't seem to hold onto the ball. Blount showed flashes of explosiveness in the pre-season and hasn't fumbled since 2011. New England has the 5th easiest schedule for RBs over the next 4 weeks.Joique Bell (RB DET) 92 yards, 5 REC, 2 TDReggie Bush is a glorified WR; Bell is essentially the starting tailback and obvious red-zone favorite.Brent Celek (TE PHI) 56 yards, 2 REC, 1 TDVick and Celek seem to be back on the same page and with the help of Chip Kelly, Celek could see a lot of red-zone looks.Kellen Winslow (TE NYJ) 79 yards, 7 REC, 1 TDWith Gronk still hurt, and Sudfeld's goose-egg in week 1, I'm going to look at Geno Smith's new best friend to make up some lost points. The Jets have the easiest schedule for TEs to score over the next 4 weeks and Winslow certainly showed he can still catch the ball.Greg Zuerlein (K STL) 4 FG, 1 XPThe Rams offense seems to be clicking, finally. Legatron should have no problem putting up a consistent 8-12 points weekly.Dallas (DEF) 3 Sack, 3 INT, 3 FR, 2 TDQuite simple here: Goodbye Rob Ryan, hello Monte Kiffin.
