After watching games this week I noticed that every year some players have a breakout game in week one but do nothing for the rest of the year. Remember Frisman Jackson of the Cleveland Browns? I didn’t think so. His first game of the season he had 12 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown. The rest of the year he caught 4 passes. Here are some players to get and avoid on the waiver wire.
The Real Deal:
Chargers DST They don’t have to play the Raiders for Shawne Merriman to light teams up
Laurence Maroney RB Patriots The Patriots are always good at drafting and this rookie is no exception
Steve McNair QB Ravens With old teamate Derrick Mason it could be a fun year in Baltimore
Troy Williamson WR Vikings With no true number 1 receiver Williamson a former 1st round pick could come into his own this season
One Game Wonder:
Chad Pennington QB Jets Titans are one of the worst pass defense teams in the league and there is always question about the shoulder.
Laveranues Coles WR Jets (See Chad Pennington)
Bills DST The Bills have defensive talent, but they don’t have enough offense to keep them rested.
Vikings DST The Vikings have great corners but the linebacker position is questionable with 1st round pick Chad Greenway out for the year.
