Each week, we will run down the top waiver wire pickups with a focus on the coming week and rest of the season. Randy Johnson Jersey . QUARTERBACKS Nick Foles (at Green Bay)Last week: 22/28, 406 yards, 7 TDsFoles, a now record-tying NFL QB thanks to his seven touchdown performance against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9, is owned by only a quarter of teams. Thats a lot of needy teams that missed out on his 40+ point performance. The former third-rounder has been impressive all year long in spot duty for the injured Michael Vick and is all but guaranteed to be the Eagles starter the rest of the year. Hes not going to throw seven touchdowns every week but he could be a borderline QB1, something almost impossible to find on the waiver wire this late in the season. EJ Manuel (at Pittsburgh)Last week: InjuredManuel was given the green light to return to action with the Bills on Monday and with that comes the green light to be picked up again by fantasy teams. Prior to Manuels knee injury, the rookie was averaging 13 points per game and, if his progression with a decent looking Bills offence continues throughout the year, hes worth adding, especially if you need a bye week fill-in over the next couple weeks. Case Keenum (at Cardinals)Last week: 20/34, 350 yards, 3 TDsKeenum was outstanding in his debut for the Texans and gave fans in Houston, after too much of Matt Schaub in recent years, hope for the future. The young, undrafted free agent doesnt appear to be afraid of taking chances and with a premier receiver like Andre Johnson on the other end of his passes, that could be a good thing. Keenum is a gunslinger and, while I wouldnt be surprised to see his interception totals spike in coming weeks, he should be always be good for healthy yardage totals. Jason Campbell (Bye)Last week: 23/35, 262 yards, 3 TDsAfter years of having nothing go right in Cleveland, nothing can seemingly go wrong for the Browns this year. Its still likely not enough to get the Browns in the playoffs, but their players can benefit fantasy teams with some big weeks. Jason Campbell, the third quarterback to start a game for Cleveland, had a huge game against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. The veteran hurt his ribs in Week 9 but should be fine when the Browns return from their bye week against the Cincinnati Bengals. If youve got room on your bench, Campbell could be worth an add. Others: Kellen Clemons (at Colts), Christian Ponder (vs Redskins) RUNNING BACKS Andre Brown (vs Raiders)Last week: InjuredBrown confirmed on Monday that hell be returning from the IR designated to return to make his season debut in Week 10, and with it the Giants hope their running back nightmare of 2013 is over. While its unlikely Brown will be the solution to all the Giants rushing problems, he could be for a needy fantasy team. Its hard to tell how effective Brown will be but he should get the most touches out of New Yorks backfield and that alone is worth a couple FAAB dollars. Donald Brown (vs Rams)Last week: 6 carries, 49 yardsBrown is just the second most owned running back in the Colts backfield (by a longshot behind Trent Richardson) but he shouldnt be. Since Richardsons acquisition Brown has proven to be the more effective back. While the two are likely looking at a timeshare in the backfield the rest of the way, Brown is the third-down back, lending to more passing opportunities. The former first-rounder was held to just six carries and 49 yards on Sunday Night but that was more because Indy was engaged in an aerial battle with the Texans; his carries should increase in coming weeks. Rashad Jennings (at Giants)Last week: 15 carries, 102 yards, 7 catches, 74 yards, 1 TDFor the second time this year, and seemingly millionth time in his career, Darren McFadden left a game with an injury for the Raiders. Jennings stepped in and stepped up, accumulating 176 total yards in Oaklands blowout loss to the Eagles. If McFaddens injury keeps him out in Week 10, the Raiders will have no problem feeding Jennings the rock against the Raiders. The former Jaguars backup has been the teams best back even when McFadden is healthy. Ben Tate (at Cardinals)Last week: 22 carries, 81 yardsThis suggestion is contingent on Arian Fosters injury status for Week 10 but since we likely wont know that until waiver bids are due, err on the side of caution and look to grab Tate. What we do know is that if Tate gets the start for an injured Foster, hes done enough over the past couple seasons to prove hes a decent RB2 if given a starters workload. Others: Jonathan Stewart (at 49ers), Daniel Thomas (at Buccaneers) WIDE RECEIVERS Riley Cooper (at Packers)Last week: 5 catches, 139 yards, 3 TDsAfter his early season controversy, it seems Cooper and the Eagles can coexist. After weeks of putting up below average fantasy scores, Cooper exploded in the Eagles rout of the Raiders. Cooper wont score three TDs every week but if the chemistry he appeared to have with likely new full-time starter Nick Foles continues to manifest, hell be an intriguing WR3/flex option in Philadelphia. Marlon Brown (vs Bengals)Last week: 5 catches, 54 yards, 2 TDsThe undrafted free agent had a big Week 9 against the Browns, and looks to be working his way towards more targets in the Ravens offence. Brown is nothing more than a bye week fill-in at the moment – through nine weeks hes averaging only about five points per week but his nine Week 9 targets were a team high, suggesting Joe Flacco could look to the young receiver more in the second half of the season. Others: Kris Durham (at Bears), Nate Washington (vs Jaguars) TIGHT ENDS Tim Wright (vs Dolphins)Last week: 4 catches, 58 yards, 1 TDWright could be an interesting add at the tight end position. The undrafted free agent is averaging six targets in his six games this season and while that has translated to just an average of 32 yards per game, if he can find the end zone on a more consistent basis – like he did last week in the Bucs near upset of the Seahawks – hes worth a flyer. Wright could have some chemistry with Tampas rookie QB Mike Glennon which would certainly help his fantasy stock. Others: Zach Miller (at Falcons), Coby Fleener (vs Rams) Nelson Cruz Jersey . The club was unable to retain hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who is bound for Atlanta. Seitzer replaces Greg Walker, who was assisted by Scott Fletcher this season as the Braves finished 79-83. Felix Hernandez Jersey . And all things considered, the first 40 games have offered a little bit of everything from a hockey club that faced many questions in its first year under new management, with a new head coach and with a number of new faces in the lineup. However, with a recent dip in scoring, it seems some of the same old questions persist and several new ones have been raised after a somewhat troubling homestand. http://www.baseballmarinersofficial.com/robinson-cano-jersey-c-4/ . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner.This Decision, as with everything in LeBrons world, is about legacy. It is about not one, not two, not six, not seven. It is about finding a path to being the undisputed best of all time. There are two choices and only two choices. Cleveland, or Miami, as it always has been.(Image Courtesy: The Canadian Press)The Miami Option Its Decision The Sequel time. Mercifully, LeBrons not spending this process preening with Jim Gray, backlit by a cross-legged wall of grade school flunkies, about to rip the hearts out of Ohios faithful in unprecedented fashion—no easy feat. Even with that atrocity behind him, true to form, he still cant help being the most drawn-out, narcissistic soap opera in sports. Which, of course, plays fine in Miami. That is because—now let me phrase this correctly—Miami fans suck at their jobs. (A point I raised in a May 18th column on BarDown ; and an April 22nd column; and back in 2011 . In Miami, LeBron doesnt need to worry about upsetting the fan base, about jersey burnings on Ocean Drive, because South Florida fans have never really treasured their basketball team, despite three titles and five Finals in nine seasons. They had to be encouraged to attend and cheer during the first season of the Big 3, and were caught exiting the turnstiles before the miraculous end of 2013s Game 6, a situation which would have elicited Beatlemania-esque hysteria from any other fanbase. For further research on the subject, I invite you to investigate "Marlins, Miami attendance" at your local search engine facility. Despite weak tea fans, LeBron is stuck with Miami as the place to concretize his legacy, if not entirely rehabilitate his reputation. In Miami he has done the unfathomable: lived up to the hype. His Decision, his smoke machine-filled stage declarations, our impossibly high expectations of his performance—he essentially matched them all. Hes been the overwhelmingly dominant force on a team with a short bench, a creaky supporting cast, an often wobbly second banana, and four consecutive Finals appearances, winning a couple of em. The last men to achieve four straight were 1980s-era Magic and Larry (who also only won two each, and surprisingly, not just while playing each other). In Miami, in the diseased Eastern Conference, even with a patchwork reassembly of the Big 3 coupled with this seasons minimum wage ring-hunters, it would be hard to keep LeBron from reaching a fifth straight Finals. Yonder Alonso Jersey. And nobody has accomplished that since Bill Russell, who, if memory serves, invented basketball.(Image Courtesy: Mike Gallay)The Cleveland Option On the other side of legacy is the Bernese Mountain Dog of fans, the loyal amongst the loyal: the Cleveland Ohioan. The Browns and Indians bear legacies of endless losing married to undying support, cherished to a level few rival. In the LeBron era, marked by achievement and heartbreak, the awkwardly-named Cavaliers scratched and clawed themselves to that hallowed category most precious to the die-hard fan: historical conflict. They have been granted passage into the realm of the beloved. "Hello, Cubbies." "Oh, hello Cavs, the Maple Leafs were looking for you." Scribes will try subterfuge, to distract you with the shaky relationship between LeBron and Dan Gilbert, to make you ponder the future of Andrew Wiggins or the arrival of Kevin Love, to stoke your consideration at what scheming forces Pat Rileys hair gel conceals, but its all blather in a Twittering sea of conjecture and empty suit speculation. Cleveland is LeBrons chance at redemption, and make no mistake, at an extended window of winning. When the dusts of time settle, nobody remembers who owned which team or how much anyone got paid. They just remember who was the best and who got the rings. Nobody wanted to condemn LeBron more than me four years ago, but he proved exquisite on the court, and savvy off of it. Ill never get accustomed to the four-step layups, nor the constant whining to officials, nor forget the Decision to team up with conference rivals instead of vanquishing them, but there is one place he can go where nobody, not in Florida or Ohio or clacking at their keypad, can doubt that a victory there will heal all wounds. LeBrons choice boils down to a simple question, because in his primordial bath of substance and ego, and hype and hype met, it is all he has ever asked: Where will he best be able to build a lasting legacy of excellence, winning and respect? Cleveland. (Nobody else has EVER answered that particular question that particular way.)
