Waiver Wire Additions Week 15

Colt McCoyMcCoy will likely be under center on Sunday for the Browns, which is good for the Cleveland faithful as well as fantasy owners in search of a quaterback. McCoy has been out the last three games with a high ankle sprain, and while the Browns have won two of those three games, their victories have zero to do with Jake Delhomme. McCoy isn’t a top option this week, but with Brodie Croyle starting in place of Matt Cassell, Alex Smith at San Diego and the likes of Jimmy Clausen and John Skelton as options, McCoy becomes a top 20 quarterback. If you are in a two quarterback league, take a chance on McCoy as the Bengals are giving up an average of 33 points in their last four games.

Jason CampbellComing off a week where he threw for 324 yards and two touchdowns, it’s impossible not to endorse Campbell for a spot start. While Campbell has been inconsistent, he’s going against a Broncos team who he beat in week seven with a quaterback rating of 127.9. The Denver defense ranks 19th against the pass and with the exception of giving up 10 points to the Chiefs two weeks ago, teams have scored 35 or more in four of the last five weeks. Fantasy football is about the unexpected, so expect Campbell to bring you to a fantasy championship.

Derek HaganSteve Smith has officially been place on IR with season-ending knee surgery, and with Mario Manningham not a guarantee to start vs. the Eagles, Hagan could step into the number two receiver slot for the Giants.  With Hakeem Nicks getting so much attention, Hagan should see a ton of targets from Eli Manning, making him very useful in ppr leagues. Against the Jaguars on December 5th Hagan caught seven balls for 65 yards, stepping up when New York needed some extra hands. Keep an eye on Manningham’s status for Sunday, as Hagan makes for a nice flex play against Philadelphia due to the Giants injuries.

Kevin BossOn Monday Night with Nicks back in the lineup, Manning still gave Boss plenty of attention as he scored his fourth touchdown in six weeks. In 2010, the tight ends have gone in trends, as almost everyone has been inconsistent with the exception of Antonio Gates. It’s a position where you are riding the hot hand and with Zach Miller and Jacob Tamme cooling off, Boss has gained momentum becoming a top five tight end option.

Shayne GrahamWhile it’s seems odd to recommend picking up a kicker, with the Patriots offense scoring over 30 points in their last five games, Grahams value has sky rocketed. Graham has scored 21 fantasy points in the month of December and is a top five kicker as you head towards your fantasy championship. Cut earlier this season, Graham is now part of a championship pedigree in New England and is a must own in all leagues.
