The fantasy football season nears its halfway point for most leagues. Sorry for the bad news. Nobody wants to be halfway done with football.

But that does not mean it is time to quit on your fantasy team, even if it looks hopeless. Keep churning the waiver wire this week with these adds:


Andy Dalton, Bengals [264-1]
With A.J. Green emerging as a No. 1 wide receiver, Dalton and the Bengals are getting it done in the passing game.

Colt McCoy, Browns [215-2; 4-16]
Bye week fill-in quarterback only. The emergence of Greg Little will help his numbers going forward.

Running Backs

DeMarco Murray, Cowboys [10-32; 1-7]
Felix Jones suffered a high ankle sprain and could miss several weeks. Tashard Choice is an option here, too.

Donald Brown, Colts [5-35-1; 2-16]
Good as a change-of-pace back, should see more work going forward with Joseph Addai out after a nice stat line.

Montario Hardesty, Browns [11-35; 2-18]
With Peyton Hillis suffering a hamstring injury, Hardesty is slated for more work in the coming weeks.

Earnest Graham, Bucs [17-109; 2-22]
LeGarrette Blount could miss several weeks, so this is Graham’s job with no real threat behind him.

Wide Receivers

Jerome Simpson, Bengals [6-101]
As long as he can skirt a suspension/arrest, Simpson is going to see single-coverage with A.J. Green on the other side of the field.

Michael Crabtree, 49ers [9-77]
Looks like he is getting healthy and into a rhythm. Could be a PPR monster.

Greg Little, Browns [6-72]
Should have been picked up last week when he was named a starter coming off the bye.

Tight Ends

Lance Kendricks, Rams [4-71]
Really liked this guy during preseason, looks like the Rams made it a priority to get him the ball in space yesterday.

Jake Ballard, Giants [5-81]
Another player who should have been picked up last week. Still is out there in most leagues.
