Fantasy Football Pickups of the Week
The fantasy playoffs are just around the corner. If you’re fighting for one of those last couple of spots there are a couple of players you might want to target on the waiver wire this week.
Mohamed Sanu (Bengals WR) – Sanu has emerged as the No. 2 wide receiver in Cincinnati. He has scored in consecutive games including a 2 touchdown performance this past week. The Bengals face weak pass defenses in the coming weeks. Sanu could prove a worthwhile addition down the stretch.
Brandon LaFell (Panthers WR) – LaFell appears to have found a consistent role as the teams No. 2 receiver again. He has also scored in consecutive weeks and tied for the team lead in targets against the Eagles. LaFell should continue to see targest opposite of Steve Smith.
DeAngelo Williams (Panthers RB) – Panthers’ running back Jonathan Stewart picked up an ankle injury and may face a few games on the sidelines. The Panthers are now calling the injury a high-ankle sprain, which can require several weeks to fully recover. Williams is worth an add if you need running back help and Stewart misses time.
