NFL waiver wire

Vince Young, QB (TEN): After accumulating 429 passing yards, zero passing touchdowns and six interceptions Week 4 through 9, Vince Young was probably dumped onto the waiver wire in most leagues. The Madden curse has taken it's effect on Young in his sophomore season, but he's come back to life in the previous two weeks and is worth owning again. He has 562 yards and three total touchdowns in the last two weeks and has posted season highs for passing yards in back-to-back weeks -- a sign that he is looking crisp again.

Kolby Smith, RB (KC): Kolby "Caillat" Smith is looking like a bubbly pickup now that Larry Johnson is sidelined with a foot injury and Priest Holmes is expected to retire thanks to a pain in his neck. For better or for worse, the Louisville product is going to get the bulk of the carries, which means he's worth a shot.

Andre Hall, RB (DEN): Although the Denver backfield has been murky the past few seasons, it's starting to clear up. With Travis Henry dealing with a PCL sprain and a pending suspension, and Selvin Young forced out of Monday's game with a knee sprain, rookie free agent Andre Hall stepped in and ripped off a 62-yard touchdown. Although Young returned, Hall should see some more carries and is definitely a person of fantasy interest. He could become worth a lot should he become the starter.

Ron Dayne, RB (HOU): With Ahman Green in and out of the lineup, and consistently questionable each week, Ron Dayne has stepped in and been productive for the Houston Texans. The Great Dayne has 237 total yards and a touchdown over his last two starts and should see more running room now that the passing game is back in full effect with Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson healthy. With December approaching, it is worth noting that Dayne totaled 429 rushing yards and five touchdowns Week 13 through 16 last season.

D.J. Hackett, WR (SEA): With the Seattle Seahawks focusing more on their passing game, than their running game, D.J Hackett has been a beneficiary. He's caught 23 passes for 295 yards in his last three games, notching a touchdown grab in each one. Even with Deion Branch returning, there's plenty of passes to go around for Hackett to continue his success.

Javon Walker, WR (DEN): Not a lot needs to be said here. Javon Walker is returning from a lengthy injury and if somebody dropped him to the waiver wire, now is the time to pick him up. He has potential to be a No. 1 fantasy wideout and should return to his role as the Broncos' top wide receiver.

Alex Smith, TE (TB): If you are looking for help at tight end, Alex Smith has proven to be a productive option of late. He's been dealing with an ankle sprain all season but looked strong last week after the Buccaneers returned off of their bye. He's a talented player and the Bucs are still looking for a second option to Joey Galloway, it's just a matter of consistency.

Arizona Cardinals Defense: This is an easy call: the Cardinals are facing the San Francisco 49ers' offense this week. For the 49ers, they might be better off putting their defense and special teams on the field because their offense simply can't score points. Regardless of who is at the helm, it is a constant uphill trek to reach 200 yards for the 49ers' offense and the Cardinals have proven to be a tough out at home.
