Waiver Wired, Week 5: Bye Bye Brady

We've survived the first bye week with six of the better teams in the league on a two week vacation. It led to unusual results and other players taking a turn in the other spotlight. Miami and Oakland are the only teams on bye in Week 5 after they beat up on each other in London, so there aren't that many players you need to replace this week. Oakland also needs to replace...

Bridgewater faced little resistance from the Falcons defense in his first career start, en route to his first career win; it’s a great first step in building confidence for what could be a productive 2014 fantasy season (Ann Heisenfelt/AP). With just the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders having a Week 5 bye upon their returns from London, England, your roster won’t have too...

EJ Manuel Benched, Kyle Orton Will Start In Week 5

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton has been named the starter over E.J. Manuel for Week 5 against Atlanta.Fantasy Spin:Orton is a solid backup, but not a fantasy starter anymore. In four games this season Manuel never threw for more than 238 yards and the change could perk up fantasy values across the board as the offense won't be limited with a veteran under center.

MNF, Week 4: Patriots vs. Chiefs

These are not your father's Patriots. Mostly because they sucked more back then. But here in the 21st century, we are used to the Greatriots. Not so much anymore. More like the Mediocriots, amiright? Tom Brady, the Uggs Overlord himself, is ranked 30th in the league with just 5.54 yards per attempt, and has just completed 1 of his 13 attempts of 21 yards or longer downfield...

Buffalo Bills Bench EJ Manuel, Name Kyle Orton Starter

#455877306 / gettyimages.comIt looked like this was the year for the Buffalo Bills. The New England Patriots and Tom Brady aren't the same team from years ago, so the AFC East appeared up for grabs. After a 2-0 start, people for praising the Bills. EJ Manuel did a great job managing the offense over the first 2 weeks, as he completed 32/48 passes (67%) for 375 yards with 3...

The Kansas City Chiefs Are the Most Boring Franchise in Football.

By Justin C. CliburnI can't be the only one who thinks this. I grew up in Oklahoma, so I've seen plenty of Chiefs games in my 25+ years of watching football . . . and the Chiefs are by far the most boring franchise over that time. It's not even close. I'd like to preface this by saying I am a traditionalist. I respect the history of the game and classic uniforms that...

LeSean McCoy Has Miserable Game In Week 4

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rushed for just 17 yards on 10 carries against San Francisco.Fantasy Spin:Seventeen rushing yards and no receiving yards, this is becoming an ugly trend. He's yet to rush for 80 yards in a game and has one touchdown. That's not what fantasy owners paid high dollar for on draft day. Hopefully the Eagles injured offensive line will get healthier...

Nick Foles Has Terrible Outing vs. 49ers

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21-of-43 passes for just 195 yards and two interceptions.Fantasy Spin:OK, everyone is allowed a bad day now and then ... except Peyton Manning. Foles couldn't do anything on offense and still had a chance to win the game on the final drive, but came up short. Credit the 49ers defense and move on.

Roddy White Gets 14 Targets In Week 4

Falcons receiver Roddy White was active as promised and led the team with 14 targets in Week 4 against Minnesota.Fantasy Spin:His hamstring injury was never a real concern. He turned those targets into 73 yards and one touchdown. We think Ryan forced the ball to White too often and down the road will utilize Julio Jones more, but we're happy to see White was healthy.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan continues to struggle on the road, though he did throw for 298 yards and three touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:He also threw two interceptions and that's five in two road games this year after throwing 14 on the road (versus three at home) last season. He's become an "only start at home guy."

Cordarelle Patterson Continues To Struggle

Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was a non-factor in Sunday's win over Atlanta.Fantasy Spin:Minnesota needs to utilize him more, as he only saw four targets all day and no rushing attempts. The only thing he contributed was two kickoff returns, one for 49 yards. He's got too much talent to be used this way.

Jarius Wright Leads Team In Week 4

Vikings backup receiver Jarius Wright led the team in targets (10), receptions (8) and yards (132) against Atlanta.Fantasy Spin:The targets total was more than double any other receiver. It will be interesting to see whether this continues or was a one-time thing. He's really only the team's third-best receiver behind Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson.
