Adds:

Leonard Hankerson, WR, Atlanta Falcons

Although Roddy White continues to see the field more than Hankerson, Leonard has outplayed him when he’s been out there. He caught 3 out of the 6 throws that went to him against the Cowboys on Sunday, while White was held catchless. If this performance continues, Hankerson will likely be on the field for more snaps than, which will give Hankerson several opportunities when the ball does not go to Julio Jones.

Lance Dunbar, RB, Dallas Cowboys

This is only for PPR leagues, as Dunbar is the Cowboys’ third down and passing back. He has developed a rapport with Brandon Weeden, catching all 10 of his targets Sunday for 100 yards. Considering the Cowboys do not have any other reliable receiving options, as Dez Bryant is injured and Jason Witten is ancient, owners of teams in PPR leagues will benefit greatly from Dunbar’s production.


 

Drops:

Cody Latimer, WR, Denver Broncos

Latimer is owned in a number of leagues, which would make sense if he played. As a draft prospect out of Indiana, he showed off an impressive combination of size and speed, but he has yet to put them together at the pro level. To put it simply, Latimer never plays. Like ever. If you own Cody, cut him sooner rather than Latimer.

Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco 49ers

Kaepernick completed 9 passes to his team last week and 4 to the other team. That’s not great. Kaep has upside due to his running ability, but most leagues have enough quarterbacks on the waiver wire to make Kaepernick not worth the risk. Unfortunately, Colin does not look like a keeper(nick) this season.


 

Buy Low:

Justin Forsett, RB, Baltimore Ravens

Forsett owners have been unhappy with him this season, as the running back has shown little ability to find room in the stagnant Ravens offense. While he might not return to the dominant player we saw last year, he should play better than he has shown thus far, especially with the Ravens playing a poor Pittsburgh Steelers defense on Thursday. See if a Forsett owner in your league will move him while he continues to struggle.


 

Sell High:

Sell High: Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals

Dalton has scorched opposing teams this year, and lit the Ravens up last week to the tune of 383 yards and 3 touchdowns. While he should continue to be a solid player, it is highly unlikely that his hot streak will continue. With a tough schedule looming over Dalton, see if you can get value now.
