Adds:

Drew Stanton, QB, Arizona Cardinals

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer tore his ACL last week, meaning that Drew will have to Stanton for the rest of the year. The Cardinals sport a talented group of offensive weapons including Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, and Andre Ellington, so Drew can Stanton the pocket and find guys open down field. No matter where you Stanton your league, look to pick Drew up, especially if you need someone to Stanton at quarterback. Also if you need a new team name, adding Drew opens up “Stanton Island” and “Stanton in the Rain”. Stanton is owned in 3 percent of espn.com leagues and 3.4 percent of nfl.com leauges.


Jordan Matthews, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

Back in training camp, Matthews was quarterback Mark Sanchez’s favorite receiver, as Philadelphia beat reporters raved about the connection the two formed on the practice field. A few months later, and the two are still in sync: Matthews caught seven passes for 138 yards, and two touchdowns in Sanchez’s first start on Monday against the Carolina Panthers. While Sanchez might not be as close to Jordan as Iraq during the Gulf War, look for the quarterback to continue to feed Matthews the ball down the stretch. Matthews is owned in 33.4 percent of espn.com leagues and 15 percent of nfl.com leagues.


 

Drops:

Anthony Dixon, RB, Buffalo Bills

Dixon’s time as the main running back in Buffalo appears to be over, as Fred Jackson made an early recovery from a groin injury. Although he will get some carries, Dixon’s upside is very limited.


Juwan Thompson, RB, Denver Broncos

Even after Ronnie Hillman was injured against the Oakland Raiders, Thompson only received four carries for eight yards. A few weeks ago, many people thought he would receive some goal line touches, but those hopes have faded, especially with Montee Ball returning from injury soon. If you have Thompson on your roster, Juwan to drop him.


 

Buy Low:

Rashad Jennings, RB, New York Giants

Jennings has missed the past five weeks with a knee injury, but he should see the field in the next few weeks. See if his owner is ready to give up on this New York running back and get him on the cheap.


 

Sell High:

Kansas City Chiefs defense

The Chiefs defense had a strong performance against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, as they only gave up 13 points and recovered two fumbles. Unfortunately, their remaining schedule includes potent offenses such as the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers, and San Diego Chargers. As rapper Chief Keef probably never said, “Trade the Chiefs defense now if you can get anything for them.”
