Fantasy Football Free Agent Frenzy featuring Tim Tebow!


Hello Fantasy Football Fans!

Welcome to the 6th week of the season!  Each week, I will list the best free agent pickups of the week every Tuesday.   I build this list by looking at the many leagues I am in which range in participation from 10-14 teams so I will try and have pickup for every level.   Please start looking at your bye weeks and plan accordingly. There is finally some running back to take a chance on.   Even though he is on bye it is the week of Tebow!  There are a few guys listed last week that may be still out there;  Torain, Cruz, Redman,  Garcon, Watson, Avant, L Robinson.  Let’s get to this week’s list;


Average Size Leagues

  • Tim Tebow-Even though they are on the bye week and he has been named the starter.  Since there are not many leagues that penalize you for comp %, you need to run and grab him.  IN the last 3 weeks of the season in 2010 he was the #1 fantasy QB in the league.  He has an odd way about him but he fills up the box score.
  • Jackie Battle-Another guy on the bye week and while he is not the quickest guy, Haley gave him a shot and he delivered last week.
  • Kerry Lumpkin-Blount is out for Sunday and he should at least get a time share.
  • Montario Hardesty-Hillis is having contract issues and the last game they played there was a 50/50 split.
  • Delone Carter-He was on this list earlier in the year but with Addai out for 1-3 weeks, he will be the guy.
  • Doug Baldwin-He got to break out the past 2 weeks as all the coverage seemed to lean toward Rice.
  • Mark Clayton-He comes back to the Rams next week and was a top 20 WR last year before he got hurt and had nice chemistry with Sam Bradford.
  • Malcolm Floyd-He is finally healthy and on a bye but could be a nice grab and stash.
  • Steve Breaston-With the Chiefs playing better, he should continue to get 5-8 targets every week.
  • Alex Smith-With a nice 7-1 TD-int ratio, you can do worse for a bye week fill in.

Deep Leagues

  • Donald Brown-He now enters a time share for Indy, maybe this is his time

  • Jonathan Dwyer-Redman got banged up and he stepped in nicely.

  • Chaz Schilens-Always had a lot of talent but injuries have held him back, now looking healthy.

  • Darious Heyward Bey-Back to back good games but not a high recommendation.

  • Jason Hill-He is the #2 WR for the Jaguars and expect them to be trailing all weeks.
