Week 1 Waiver Wire Steals: Chris Chambers and Patrick Crayton

Week 1 may seem too early to be reading articles on the waiver wire and to be looking for potential steals and sleepers. I mean, no actual games have been played yet, right?

This is true if you are looking at your fantasy football season on a week-to-week basis and not over the long haul of an entire season.

ProFootballinsight takes a look at a few players heading into Week 1 who can contribute on your roster all season long.

Waiver Wire Steal: Chris Chambers, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

chris-chambers-fantasyDid everyone forget what Chris Chambers accomplished last season after joining the Kansas City Chiefs? Chambers filled in nicely for Dwayne Bowe (as he served a four game suspension) by posting stats similar to his more youthful years.

In only 9 games last season, Chris reeled in 36 receptions for 608 yards and 4 touchdowns.  With a full 16 games, at that pace Chambers would have eclipsed 1,000 yards with ease.

Chambers still currently holds a starting WR spot with the Chiefs, and the addition of Dexter McCluster will only make the Chiefs’ offense more explosive, which in turn will free up Chambers from drawing top defensive back coverage.

The fact that he is heading into his second year with the teams and had his first offseason with Matt Cassel will only add to Chambers’ value, both in fantasy and real life, as he and the KC offense become more familiar with eachother.

Chris Chambers showed last year that he can clearly carry the Chiefs’ passing game from the receiving aspect.  In case you were wondering, Chambers is available on the waiver wire in nearly 90% of all fantasy leagues.

I look for Chambers to contribute on a regular basis in 2010.

Waiver Wire Steal: Patrick Crayton, WR, San Diego Chargers

Patrick Crayton is a name that was buried near the bottom of the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver depth chart only a few days ago.  There was no mention of Crayton as a player who could contribute in any way, shape, or form to a fantasy team on any level, or to the Cowboys for that matter.

It is amazing what a few days and a new location can do for your fantasy value.

  1. good morning. i just picked up isaac redman off the wire and i'm wondering if i should start him at my flex?? my other rb include moreno, and gore (starting both). i have buckhalter on the bench and my wr are derrick mason, jeremy maclin, jabar gaffney and aromashodu. also should i toss one of these wr for massaqoui? thanks as always.

    • I wouldn't overreact re: Redman yet. Let him actually do something in the regular season first. Mendenhall is still the clear #1 in Pitt. I'd rather Buckhalter in there over Redman since Moreno is banged up already.

  2. thanks jerrod. which wr should i start? my wr are derrick mason, jeremy maclin, jabar gaffney and aromashodu. also should i toss one of these wr for massaqoui?

  3. Hello, I'm in a non-ppr league and looking to bolster my wr corps. We don't have a lex but we start 3wrs. My WRs are Calvin Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Mike Sime Walker, Maclin and Knox. A lot to choose from on the wire. Who has the most upside for the season from the following group: Eddie Royal, Steve Breaston, Laurent Robinson, Chris Chambers, Bernard Berrian, Jabar Gaffney, Josh Morgan, Mike Williams (TB), Mike Williams (SEA), Louis Murphy, Patrick Crayton? I realize it's the beginning of the season, but wanted to get your thoughts.
