Wavier Wire Pickups

Kevin Smith, RB, Detroit Lions : I was going to put him away on my bench last week but I didnt have room, but Smith is a good waiver add, Considering his 201 yards from scrimmage Sunday versus the terrible Carolina Panthers run D. He’s your obvious No. 1 add this week, though  he has a much tougher matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Smith has a chance to stick as the Lions’ starter.

Toby Gerhart, RB, Minnesota Vikings: Adrian Peterson won’t play in Week 12, making Gerhart an option for AP owners Sunday against a strong Atlanta Falcons run D. Im concerned about the Vikings offense, but he should have a full workload to himself, and that’s worth something.

Ryan Grant, RB, Green Bay Packers: I figured I’d mention him just in case he’s been dropped in your league. James Starks suffered injury last week, and considering the Packers get only three days off Starts will most likely be out. That likely means Grant gets the most backfield touches Thursday.

C.J. Spiller, RB, Buffalo Bills: Fred Jackson reportedly will be out Week 12 against the New York Jets. That would likely mean Spiller gets the start. The Buffalo offense looks just awful these days and with the Jets playing the run quite well, between touches from scrimmage and catching passes he should put up some numbers.  He also has some good matchups coming up.

Montario Hardesty, RB, Cleveland Browns: Chris Ogbonnaya has submitted two good games in a row, racking up 243 yards from scrimmage in Weeks 10 and 11 combined.  But Hardesty is a stronger, tougher runner, and would definately get some of the touches.

Jerome Simpson, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: Simpson’s 152 yards receiving on eight grabs versus the Baltimore Ravens last week got peoples attention. With A.J. Green out of the lineup,  Simpson got bumped up to the No. 1 receiver role,.  Simpson could get Andy Dalton‘s primary looks again.
