Waiver Wire Pickup for Week 5
If you've been monitoring my Waiver Wire Pickup list on FantasyFootballManifesto.com, then you already have one of the better up-and-coming NFL rookie wideouts on your fantasy football team. If not, then you've probably already missed the boat on Kansas City Chiefs rising star, Dwayne Bowe. I targeted Dwayne Bowe after Week two, and told folks to grab him then. Since Week Two, the 6'2", 221 lb Bowe has gone on an offensive tear for a total of 299 yards and three scores. Dwayne Bowe has excellent size, elusive speed, and amazing hands. This kid has the toughness to steamroll over defenders and the soft hands to cradle the ball in the endzone. Dwayne Bowe victimized the helpless San Diego Chargers defense on rout to a 30 -16 drubbing of the 1-3 Chargers. After years of first round draft wide receiver flops, the Kansas City Chiefs have finally hit on a winner. If he's available grab him immediately.
My other Waiver Wire pick for Week5 is Denver Broncos running back Selvin Young. In spot duty for Travis Henry, Young has amasses 195 all purpose yards. Young is an elusive running back with great speed and good hands. He's a formidable dual-purpose threat with the capability t run between the tackles and well as catch balls out of the backfield. Travis Henry may have himself in a heap of trouble with a possible violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. If he is suspended Selvin Young will be a very viable option in Mike Shanahan's Denver rushing juggernaut.
