Adds:

Bishop Sankey, RB, Tennessee Titans

Although Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt has refused to give Sankey carries so far, this will hopefully change soon. Sankey was one of the few bright spots against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, as he rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown while also collecting 23 receiving yards. Owners can expect Sankey’s numbers to increase once Whisenhunt finally gives Sankey the ball consistently instead of the ineffective Shonn Greene, so pick up this chess piece while he’s available. Sankey is owned in 92 percent of espn.com leagues and 64.2 percent of nfl.com leagues.

Larry Donnell, TE, New York Giants

Donnell burst onto the scene last week against the Washington NFL Team, as he caught three touchdowns and recorded 54 receiving yards. Fantasy owners should not expect this type of production from him throughout the season, but he is at the very least a worthwhile backup. Donnell is available in 26.8 percent of espn.com leagues and 19.4 percent of nfl.com leagues.


 

Drops:

Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots

I know it is heresy to even hint at dropping Tom Brady here in New England, but it does not look good for the Patriots’ QB. Not only is Brady playing abysmally, but his offensive line is in shambles, his wide receivers are mediocre, and Rob Gronkowski looks like a shell of his former self. It is probably not going to get better for Brady and the Patriots offense, so check the waiver wire for another quarterback.

Bernard Pierce, RB, Baltimore Ravens

Pierce is a graduate of Temple University, but even praying will not get him consistent carries the rest of the season. The Ravens coaching staff refuses to commit to Pierce as their starting running back, as they have had success with the tandem of Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro. If you need to clear up a spot, Pierce Bernard from your roster.


 

Buy Low:

Jordan Cameron, TE, Cleveland Browns

Cameron hurt his shoulder in the preseason and aggravated it in week one against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he says he is feeling better coming off the team’s bye. The Browns play the putrid defenses of the Tennessee Titans, Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Oakland Raiders over the next four weeks, so Cameron should have his opportunity to break out soon. Try to find an owner that’s willing to give him up on the cheap.


 

Sell High:

Steve Smith Sr., WR, Baltimore Ravens

After destroying his former Carolina Panthers Sunday to the tune of 139 yards and two touchdowns, expect Smith’s production to drop. His value will never be higher than it is right now, so see what you can get for him.
