He then missed the
Each week, we will run down the top waiver wire pickups with a focus on the coming week and rest of the season. QUARTERBACKS Jason Campbell (at Bengals)Last week: ByeThe Browns enjoyed their bye last week so if youre lucky other QB-needy fantasy owners may have forgotten his rather impressive Week 9. Against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens Campbell threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns. His injured ribs should be fully healed for the Browns road game in Cincinnati. Ryan Fitzpatrick (vs Colts)Last week: 22/33, 264 yards, 2 TDsFitzpatrick finished with a strong stat line in Week 10 replacing the injured Jake Locker and playing catch up against the no longer winless Jacksonville Jaguars. The Titans are a hard team to figure out, but one constant in Tennessee this year has been the strong fantasy numbers their QBs are putting up. Lockers injury appears to be a season-ender so owners could be getting six good weeks from Fitzpatrick. Josh McCown (vs Ravens)Last week: 6/9, 62 yards, 1 TDJay Cutler was lost again to a groin injury in Week 10 and yet there wasnt panic in Chicago. Thats a testament to McCowns play filling in this year. Cutler has been labeled as “week-to-week” which translates to at least a couple weeks so owners could get a couple starts out of McCown. The veteran is averaging more than a touchdown and nearly 200 yards per appearance this season. Scott Tolzien (at Giants)Last week: 24/39, 280 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTsTolziens decent numbers are made more impressive when you consider they were done in three quarters of action, and even more impressive when you consider the Packers current state of receivers. The Seneca Wallace era lasted only a quarter as Tolzien, fresh from the practice roster, looks to be the Packers QB until Aaron Rodgers returns from injury. Others: Christian Ponder (at Seahawks), Kellen Clemens (Bye) RUNNING BACKS Andre Brown (vs Packers)Last week: 30 carries, 115 yards, 1 TDBrown shot out of the gate in his first game of the season with a higher workload than he expected, and a much higher point total than many fantasy owners expected. The latest in a long line of starting RBs for the Giants, Brown was the sixth-highest scoring back in his 2013 debut. Those numbers shouldnt last all season long but Brown looks like he could be the Giants answer at tailback (finally!) and is worth at least an RB2 spot. Rashad Jennings (at Texans)Last week: 20 carries, 88 yards, 2 catches, 19 yardsJennings was inches away on two separate occasions from having a monster game against the Giants in Week 10. As it stood the backup still managed a very serviceable 10+ points on the day. Jennings looked good running the ball and if he cashes in his goal line opportunities in the future, he would certainly be worth an RB2 spot. Expectations should be tempered however, as Oaklands offence has regressed lately leading to fewer scoring opportunities. Until Darren McFadden returns from injury (and maybe even after that) Jennings should be provided enough opportunities to warrant a start. Brian Leonard (vs Falcons)Last week: 20 carries, 57 yards, 2 catches, 16 yardsNext man up. Brian Leonard doesnt have the talent of Mike James, and certainly not of Doug Martin, but hell be given first crack at replacing them in the Buccaneers backfield. His 57 yards on 20 carries against the Dolphins Monday night was far from inspiring but if youre desperate at the position, the former second-rounder offers you a starters workload, at least for now. Others: Rashard Mendenhall (at Jaguars) WIDE RECEIVERS Nate Burleson (at Steelers)Last week: InjuredBurleson, who has been practicing with the Lions lately, should return from probably the coolest injury story ever for Detriots Week 11 matchup against the Steelers. Burleson played three games this season, averaging 80 yards receiving, before crashing his car reaching for some dropped morning pizza. The 32-year-old should return to his starting spot opposite Calvin Johnson and see similar numbers to those he was putting up early in the season. If the veteran can find the end zone, hell be well worth the pickup. Kendall Wright (vs Colts)Last week: 7 catches, 78 yardsWright is owned by slightly more than half the fantasy leagues so it may be too late to grab him but if hes still available hes worth a grab. The sophomore receiver has emerged as the Titans go-to pass catcher, regardless of whos behind centre, and led the team in receptions and targets in Week 10 against the Jaguars. Wright has just one touchdown on the season however, scored way back in Week 2, so hell need to improve in the red zone to secure WR2 status. Riley Cooper (vs Redskins)Last week: 3 catches, 102 yards, 2 TDsCooper had his second straight big week, lending credit to the idea that his monstrous Week 9 – like QB Nick Foles – wasnt just a fluke. Cooper appears to have some chemistry with Foles although his targets per game are still on the low side. The speedy fourth-year receiver is a playmaker however, and seems to do a lot with his opportunities, no matter how limited. Others: Tavon Austin (Bye), Marlon Brown (at Bears), Brandon LaFell (vs Patriots), Ted Ginn Jr. (vs Patriots) TIGHT ENDS John Carlson (at Seahawks)Last week: 7 catches, 98 yards, 1 TDRemember him? Carlson came out of nowhere starting for an injured Kyle Rudolph to put up a surprisingly strong fantasy line in an even more surprisingly good Thursday Nighter. Carlsons 100-yard, one touchdown performance will almost certainly not be repeated but the veteran led Minnesota in targets Thursday night, meaning he should have ample opportunity to put up some points for owners in need of a tight end. Delanie Walker (vs Colts)Last week: 4 catches, 62 yards, 1 TDWalker has been a mainstay in the “Others” section of this article all year long nut after his best week of the year, graduates to a write-up for Week 11. Youd have to be desperate to grab Walker but should you need him, hell give you a fairly consistent five points or so. Its when, and only when, he reaches the end zone that hes worth a start. Brandon Bostick (at Giants)Last week: 3 catches, 42 yards, 1 TDWorking with a second-string and then third-string QB, Bostick put up his first strong fantasy line since replacing the injured JerMichael Finley. Bostick will have to find the end zone to be worth a start and thats certainly no guarantee in the Scott Tolzien-led Packers offence. His prospects may spike a little when Rodgers returns behind centre but until know hes for desperate fantasy owners only. Others: Heath Miller (vs Lions), Scott Chandler (vs Jets), Zach Ertz (vs Redskins) Discount Blazers Jerseys . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.

"Its a process and theres no carryover. You start over again and you try to get something done," Brandon told The Associated Press on Monday. "We just werent able to come up with a solution that worked for both parties, so you reset it and start again." Brandon said the team maintains "great communication" with Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, and said there are no lingering hard feelings from talks last year. "We all are hoping to get a deal done," Brandon said. "And were going to do the exact same thing this time, work our tails off to try to get another one done." Byrd is the Bills most high-profile player not under contract this off-season. He spent last year playing under a $6.9 million franchise tag after the sides were unable to reach a long-term deal by a mid-July deadline. The stalemate in talks led to Byrd waiting until the final day of training camp to accept the contract. He then missed the first five games of the season because of plantar fasciitis. Despite the missedd time, the fifth-year player was selected to his third Pro Bowl after he tied for the team lead with four interceptions, and added a sack and a forced fumble.dddddddddddd General manager Doug Whaley said the Bills are in the midst of putting together contract offers to pending free agents, including Byrd. Whaley wouldnt rule out using the franchise tag one last time on Byrd in order to retain his rights. The price of this years tag would jump to over $8 million for Buffalo. Byrd did not return after hurting his back in the first quarter of the Pro Bowl on Sunday. Byrd posted a message on his Twitter account that hes OK. Whaley had no update on the injury. He said Byrd was expected to return to the teams headquarters for evaluation. Brandon provided an update on another front. Without going into detail, he said hes had discussions with Rogers Communications regarding the teams concerns about its annual "Bills In Toronto" series. Brandon questioned the benefits of the series following a 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta at Toronto on Dec. 1. He wondered about the Bills possibly giving away a home-field edge by playing indoors. Brandon has not ruled out the possibility of the Bills pulling out of the remaining four years of the series.
