Danny Trevathan of the Denver Broncos is back from injury and is a must-add in all fantasy football IDP leagues.
Trevathan was a first round draft pick. Then he fractured his leg. And then you had to drop him to fill out your rapidly depleting roster. Now Trevathan is back. And the linebacker who finished last season with 129 tackles, two sacks, and three interceptions needs to be your first waiver wire consideration. Don’t expect fireworks right away, just know it’s going to happen.
Keenan Robinson, Washington, Linebacker: Did you know the Seattle Seahawks have given upthe fourth most fantasy points to linebackers this season? Did you know that Washington will be playing the Seahawks in week five? Until last week Robinson was at best meh. But last week he slipped on the big boy pants and accumulated 13 tackles, one pass defended and one interception. Robinson is worth a look especially since you can expect Washington’s defense to be on the field a lot.
Prince Shembo, Atlanta Falcons, Linebacker: The time share experiment has apparently come to an abrupt end in Atlanta. Shembo was on the field for 59 of 79 snaps. His time share buddy Joplo Bartu saw six total snaps. It’s time to go in on Shembo. And as bad as the Falcons’ defense has been it looks like there will be plenty of tackles to go around.
Michael Johnson, Defensive End, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: This is once again an acquisition of a player who was drafted early and then injured. He was also most likely dropped out of necessity. Now it is time to pick him up. Last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers he was good for five tackles, two sacks and one force fumble. Get him.
Mike Adams, Indianapolis Colts, Defensive Back: There is always that pick of necessity, Adams is so defined. As LaRon Landry will be forced to sit out four games, Adams is the next man up. So far Adams hasn’t been impressive. Let’s just hope necessity forces him to be serviceable.
