Waiver Wire Week 1

Here's 5 players that may be available in your league.. These are not neccessarily the 5 best performances from Sunday, rather a combination of their performance and expected production in the coming weeks..

Devery Henderson (WR-NO) - 103 yards, 1 td
*As with last year, his production will probably be again like a roller coaster ride, depending on how many yards/points New Orleans puts up.. Against weaker defensive teams, Henderson is actually a pretty good start..

Todd Heap (TE-BAL) - 74 yards, 1 td
*Once a top 3 TE, Heap has had problems with injuries the past few seasons.. For Joe Flacco to have another successful season, he may have to rely on Todd Heap quite a bit.. Still a lot of TE's that should be played before Heap, but in deeper leagues, he shouldn't be on the waiver wire much longer..

Justin Gage (WR-TEN) - 78 yards, 1 td
*Former Missouri TE seemed to be Kerry Collins favorite target against Pittsburg.. Will that continue throughout the season?? That remains to be seen, but someone in need of WR help could look to Gage for some production.. Beware of a disapeering act on any given week...

Mark Sanchez (QB-NYJ) - 272 yards, 1 td, 1 int
*Against a decent defense, in his first career NFL start, Sanchez was able to manage the game and guide his team to a victory.. There will be setbacks throughout the season, but Sanchez is a viable play against weaker defenses or for a bye week fill-in... In deeper leagues, Sanchez could be a savior for teams experiencing injuries or lack of production from the QB position..

Robert Royal (TE-CLE) - 60 yards, 1 td
*Expect Brady Quinn to utilitize the TE as he progresses as a starting quarterback.. Questionable running game could result in Quinn having to drop back and throw the ball 30 times a game.. Although redzone trips will be somewhat limited, Royal will get looks when Cleveland is inside the 20.. Quite a reach in a smaller league, but in a 16+ team league, Royal could provide suprising results..
