Fantasy Football Week One Waiver Wonders

These Fantasy Football week 1 waiver wonders had some impressive games for their respective teams.  Be sure to pick them up on your fantasy football team or at least keep an eye on them through week 2.  They will definitely be on our radar.

Eddie Royal, WR, Denver Broncos,

Royal busted onto the fantasy scene with his incredible performance on Monday night.  He accumulated 146 yards on just nine catches along with 1 touchdown in a convincing win over the Raiders.  If the guy is available in your league pick him up immediately.  The only thing that should concern you is that Brandon Marshall who was suspended for the first game will return in week two and will regain his role as the number 1 wide receiver in Denver.  


Dante Rosario Dante Rosario, TE, Carolina Panthers,

This second year tight end was the heroes in Sundays win over the Chargers as he had a career game with 7 Receptions for 96 yards and the game winning touchdown.  You should look to add this guy to lineup right away as Steve Smith will not return until week 3.  Also, after catching the game winning score Delhomme should have a lot of confidence in this guy and will continue to target him in upcoming games.


Le’Ron McClain, RB, Baltimore Ravens,

McClain, a converted fullback bulldozed his way to a great performance in week one against the Cincinnati Bengals.  Mclain carried the ball for 18 times gaining 86 yards and also had 2 receptions for 24 yards, not bad for a fourth round compensatory pick.  McClain could have some value as a handcuff for Willis Mcgahee owners.   


Tim HightowerTim Hightower, RB, Arizona Cardinals,

This rookie had only 8 rushes for 13 yards and 3 receptions for 21 yards but did score a touchdown.  James is no longer the player that he once was which means he will be losing many touches to Hightower in the coming weeks.  It also looks like he might be the goal line guy which should give him some value in fantasy leagues.
