Week 5 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

I do write these myself but due to some unforeseen circumstances I have put together quoted list of guys from the source below and eliminated suggestions I find have no value and are a waste of a pick-up.

"QB Derek Anderson, Browns: Anderson had the best performance of any Brown quarterback so far this season, completing 26-of-48 passes for 269 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He is probably not worth starting yet, but if you are in a quarterback pinch with bye weeks Anderson could be a decent play against Buffalo next week as they rank 21st in the league in pass defense."

A deep league candidate who could reemerge into his 2007 form.

"RB Rashard Mendenhall, Steelers: Mendenhall, starting in place of Willie Parker, carried 29 times for 165 yards and two touchdowns against the Chargers Sunday night. He also added two receptions for 26 yards. Mendenhall responded to his benching in Week 3 by finally showing why the team drafted him in the first round two years ago. Not only did he have a career day statistically, he also had a couple of Hines Ward-like blocks in the game to put a stamp on his performance. As well, he had some key runs in the fourth quarter when the Steelers tried to eat up the clock as the Chargers were mounting a fourth-quarter comeback. Let the talk of a running back controversy begin as he had more yards rushing Sunday than Willie Parker has had all season (159)."

With Willie Parker's constant injury issues he is great player to have on your bench and a great start should Parker miss this weeks game.

"RB Jerome Harrison, Browns: Harrison carried 29 times for 121 yards and also caught five passes for 31 yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Bengals. With James Davis done for the season and Jamal Lewis inactive, Harrison was forced into a lead role and he more than held his own, with the one downer being a lost fumble. Even when Lewis is back, Harrison has likely earned himself some extra touches going forward with his capable Week 4 effort."

"RB Ricky Williams, Dolphins: Williams had 16 carries for 85 yards on Sunday versus Buffalo . The Dolphins destroyed the Bills with their ground attack to the tune of 250 yards. Williams had another big game, averaging 5.3 yards per carry, with a long of 28 yards and a touchdown. Look for the Dolphins to continue to keep the ball on the ground to take the pressure off quarterback Chad Henne."

"WR Kenny Britt, Titans: Britt had seven catches and recorded his first 100-plus yard game of his career (105) against the Jaguars on Sunday. Britt had the best game so far in his short career in both receptions and yards, but did not come away with a touchdown catch. He is looking as if he may become a productive starting receiver in the future."
