Chuckie Keeton should be sidelined for a few more weeks with a sprained knee, making Myers an attractive waiver addition given his dual-threat ability. Not only did he pass for 137 yards and a touchdown leading the Aggies to a 33-18 win over Colorado State on Saturday, but he added another 191 yards and a TD on the ground.
James Summers, QB-East Carolina
Summers has earned significant playing time in the Pirates’ previous two games and has totaled seven TDs (3 pass, 4 rush). His dual-threat ability adds a running dimension to the ECU offense, an element that had been missing until Summers’ emergence.
Jarveon Williams, RB-UTSA
Williams is averaging 131 rushing yards per game over the last three weeks and has scored at least one touchdown per game during that time and the Road Runners have some favorable matchups in the coming weeks.
Jahray Hayes, RB-Central Michigan
Hayes took over at running back after starter Devon Spalding was lost to a broken collarbone and finished Week 5 with 88 rushing yards on 29 attempts in the Chippewas’ 29-19 win over Northern Illinois.
Justin Silmon, RB-Kansas State
Silmon has emerged as the Wildcats’ primary ball carrier, totaling 39 carries in the past two games and he has now scored in two of the past three games.
Mike Warren, RB-Iowa State
If you listened to last week’s Spreecast, we identified Warren as a breakout performer in Week 5, and he ran for 175 yards and two TDs against Kansas. In the Cyclones’ past two games, the freshman back has rushed for 301 yards and 2 TDs on 39 carries.
Donovan Harden, WR-Georgia State
Harden finally made his 2015 debut and caught 5 passes for 179 yards and a TD on Saturday. Chances are pretty good that he was thrown back into your leagues waiver pool and is available this week.
Joshua Atkinson, WR-Tulsa
Atkinson may have been plucked from the waiver wire after his 10-catch game at Oklahoma two weeks ago, but if he’s still available, the 6-2 junior receiver has posted three consecutive 100-yard games in an offense ranked among the top teams in the FBS in offensive snaps per game.
Mike Thomas, WR-Southern Miss
Thomas was a non-factor for the first three weeks of the season, but has caught twelve passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns in the past two weeks, and should continue to post decent numbers on a week-to-week basis in an offense that is clicking right now.
Ajalen Holley, WR-LA Monroe
Holley has recorded at least eight receptions in three consecutive games and is the Warhawks’ primary receiving threat now that Rashon Ceaser has been lost for a significant amount of time.
Calvin Ridley, WR-Alabama
The freshman receiver is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season and has scored in two consecutive games. Ridley should only getter better as the season progresses.
