Unless you are in a 8 team league your waiver wire is getting pretty thin at this point.  With that being said there are always moves to make and players to grab off the scrap heap.  With some key injuries in Arizona and Tennessee there possible steals out there who could help you right away.  Please use the below list as a guide when perusing the waiver wire.  Our Pickup of the week happens to be William Powell.  WHO you may ask?  Well he is most likely the running back in Arizona who will carry the load for the foreseeable future with news that Ryan Williams is out for the season with surgery slated on his AC shoulder joint. 

Ryan Tannehill - Owned in 5.4% of ESPN Leagues

While the young QB isn't exactly lighting things up yet we see the potential.  He has a strong arm and a quick release to go along with solid accuracy.  He is a guy that could be a solid backup down the stretch.

Worth a look in larger leagues

William Powell - Owned in .1% of ESPN Leagues

Our pickup of the week as Ryan Williams went down for the year and Beanie Wells is out until week 12.  Powell is easily first in line to be the feature back in Arizona for the near future.

Should be owned in all leagues

Jamie Harper - Owned in .1% of ESPN Leagues

With Javon Ringer likely out for the season and Chris Johnson playing horribly bad Harper is a sneaky add and could pay dividends down the line

Worth a look in Larger Leagues

Josh Gordon - Owned in .3% of ESPN Leagues

The talented Supplemental pick of the Browns received his first start last Sunday and produced with a long TD grab.  He could be just what strong armed Brandon Weeden needs to get a jump start on his season.

Should be owned in Larger Leagues

Devery Henderson - Owned in 1.7% of ESPN Leagues

Here comes Henderson yet again.  With Lance Moore and Jimmy Graham hindered by injuries Brees is looking back to his old stand by in Henderson.  With 8 grabs for 100+ yards and a TD Henderson should get increased targets at least for the short term

Should be owned in Larger Leagues

Domenik Hixon - Owned in 17.3% of ESPN Leagues

Hixon is now a starting wide receiver for the NY Giants until Hakeem Nicks returns from injury.  In the pass happy Giant offense you could do much worse than adding Hixon to your roster.
