Top 5 Fantasy Football Free Agents
1). Danny Amendola STL WR 15 Receptions 160 yards 1 TD
He’s the number one receiver on a pass heavy offense. What more could you want? Oh, he also set an NFL record with 12 receptions in the first half last week.
2). Andre Brown NYG RB 90 Total yards 1 TD
Not shockingly, Ahmad Bradshaw has gone down with a injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, it looks like Brown, not David Wilson, will fill in as the number one back.
3). Donnie Avery IND WR 9 receptions 111 receiving yards
Even without Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts offense still looks to be a solid source for multiple wide receivers. Avery looks to be a solid number two behind Reggie Wayne.
4). Dennis Pitta BAL TE 8 receptions 65 Receiving yards
In case you’re still searching for a tight end, Pitta looks to be a solid addition. This season he already has over 24 targets, which is among the league leaders for tight ends.
5). Andrew Hawkins CIN WR 2 receptions 56 yards TD
Hawkins has seemingly found his place as the number 2 receiving option in the Cincinnati Bengals offense. His ability to make big time plays and his previous 8 reception performance in week 1 make him an intriguing add.
Three Trends to Watch
1). Have the wheels fallen off for Chris Johnson? 79 total yards out of a 1st round draft pick is just ridiculous.
2). With Steve Smith going down, Brandon LaFell has to be upgraded. That man should see a lot of action his way!
3). I would sell high on Wes Welker. It seems like the New England Patriots are phasing him out of their offense with Justin Edelman seeing more snaps and starting in front of Welker.
