If you’re a picky eater like I am, then going to a fast food restaurant is like taking a trip to Vegas. The hopes are high as you go in to get your hamburger with mustard and ketchup only. Like Vegas, the fast food “house” usually foils your plans, slipping a pickle underneath your sandwich, despite the fact that no one really likes pickles on their hamburgers.
A lot of fantasy football players saw the house win this past week. Joseph Addai owners are looking for the mustard on their burger, after salivating all week over his match up against the Raiders. Tony Romo and Tom Brady owners each got an extra serving of pickles under their burgers. Shaun Alexander owners are fed up with their service, and are looking for that new restaurant that is serving up Aaron Stecker and Sage Rosenfels.
That new restaurant is the Waiver Wire Café, where you can feast on some waiver wire wonders. While it is nearly impossible to predict which one of your stars will have a day like Brady or Romo, it is easy to off-set their poor performance with strong outings from waiver wire guys like Stecker. This week’s waiver wire wonders will help you find those types of solid performances, with no pickles hiding under the burger.
