2010 Fantasy Football All Waiver Wire Team - Page 3
Todd Heap, Baltimore Ravens - I wish I took my own advice. I picked up Heap on waivers and after two weeks dropped him for Brandon Pettigrew. Pettigrew is nice but Heap is far better. Heap is currently ranked number four among all tight ends ahead of players like Vernon Davis, Dustin Keller, and Tony Gonzalez. Not bad for a guy most didn't expect to be productive at all this season.
Chicago Bears - The Bears are back and so is their ferocious defense. Nobody saw this one coming and the Bears were one of the few defenses that went undrafted. To put into perspective how good they are for fantasy owners, they are a full 25 points better than the New York Jets this season that not only went first, but even went with high draft picks in some drafts. The have five double digit games through 12 which is really impressive for a defense, undrafted nonetheless.
Dan Carpenter, Miami Dolphins - There really isn't a whole lot of attention paid to kickers in fantasy football, but they can be the difference in a tight game. I don't take kickers before my last pick because of situations like this where some of the best kickers wind up on the waiver wire. Dan Carpenter has been one of the few bright spots for the Dolphins this season. Six of Carptenter's eleven games have been double digits. Take a how many single digit losses you have at the end of the season and think about how different your record would have been with a kicker like Carpenter.
