Widely Dropped Due To Injury, Corey Coleman Could Be Back As Soon As Week 9
Without doubt the Cleveland Browns are the worst team in the NFL. In contrast to the success of NBA Champions Cavaliers and the current favorites to win the World Series Cleveland Indians, the Browns have had no success despite plenty of high draft picks. Indeed you can point to the injury to Robert Griffin, or Josh Gordon’s inability to shake his troubling dependance issues to explain the lack of success this season, but this has been happening long before now. In the meantime, the Browns are winless and looking for any spark. Corey Coleman could be thrust into a high volume passing attack as soon as next week. As always, all of the players mentioned in the waiver column are available in over 50% of yahoo leagues. For more information and interaction, visit the forums page and our twitter.
Corey Coleman (42%) Cleveland Browns
To repeat an important point. The Browns are terrible. As a result there can be negative consequences for the fantasy options on the team. Coleman coming back may have a negative impact on Terrell Pryor’s stellar year. At the same time, according to NFL.com, the Cleveland Browns attempt over 37 passes per game ranking them 12th in the NFL. Therefore the addition of a 2nd reliable option may not affect Pryor’s production. Lets look at Coleman’s performance before his injury. In his first game he led his team in receiving yards with 69 yards on 2 catches. In the second game of the season he exploded for 5 catches for 104 and 2 touchdowns. Although the number one receiver spot seems to be solidified as Terrell Pryor’s role on the team, I wouldn’t be surprised if Coleman replaces him as the main receiving threat in Cleveland.
Quincy Enunwa (44%) New York Jets
Quincy Enunwa is frequently mentioned as a suggested waiver add because he is actually a pretty reliable option. After a strong 2 weeks at the beginning of the season, he registered a highly inefficient game in week 3 registering 4 catches for 37 yards on 11 targets. That game was the low point of his season. Since then he hasn’t had less than 42 yards in a game and has replaced Eric Decker as the second receiving option behind Brandon Marshall. In the last 2 weeks Enunwa is averaging 83 yards and a touchdown. In week 9 the Jets get an easy matchup against a Miami defense giving up 367 total yards per game.
Tyreek Hill (3%) Kansas City Chiefs
Remember when Chris Johnson blew everyone away at the combine with a 4.24 second 40 yard dash? That was the fastest time ever recorded and Tyreek Hill tied that record. You can see his speed pop off the screen when you watch him play and there is no doubt the Chiefs are finding ways to get him involved. He has a touchdown in back to back games and including 5 catch 98 yard game against the Colts this past week. With the Jacksonville Jaguars coming up in week 9 Hill could be a sneaky start.
