Lawry was listed as one of our Week 9 Sleeper Picks earlier last week before we reported that he had officially been named the starting running back. If you did not grab him last week, you may find yourself amidst the waiver wire frenzy to claim the freshman back, especially after he ran for 148 yards and four touchdowns against the Hilltoppers over the weekend.
Next three weeks: @ Vanderbilt, FIU, bye
Brian Hill, RB-Wyoming
D.J. May has been lost for the season due to a knee injury and Shaun Wick will reportedly miss the next 4 weeks with a hand injury. Hill carried the ball 28 times for 121 yards and two touchdowns against Colorado State and he should continue to lead the rushing attack for the Cowboys in Wick’s absence.
Next three weeks: @ Fresno State, Utah State, bye
Wayne Gallman, RB-Clemson
After carrying the ball 28 times for 101 yards Saturday against Syracuse, Gallman seems like the best Clemson running back option for fantasy owners moving forward. However, scoring opportunities will likely be limited until quarterback Deshaun Watson makes his return.
Next three weeks: bye, @ Wake Forest, @ Georgia Tech
Saylor Lavallii, RB-Central Michigan
Much like West Virginia’s Wendell Smallwood last week, Lavallii is insurance for owners of Thomas Rawls, who left Saturday’s game against Buffalo with a knee injury. Rawls’ availability for the Chippewas’ upcoming game against Eastern Michigan may not be known until the end of the week.
Next three weeks: @ Eastern Michigan, bye, Miami (OH)
Jordan Taylor, WR-Rice
Since his return from injury, Taylor has re-established himself as Rice’s primary target. The senior receiver has gone over the 70-yard mark and scored a touchdown in three consecutive games for the Owls.
Next three weeks: @ FIU, UTSA, @ Marshall
Donovan Harden, WR-Georgia State
There is good news and bad news as you consider putting in a waiver claim for the Georgia State junior receiver. The good news is that you would be getting one of the hottest receivers in college football, as Harden has hauled in 21 passes for 318 yards and six touchdowns over the past two weeks. The bad news is that you are very unlikely to have Harden duplicate those numbers should you happen to land him, but his most recent performances offer plenty of promise on the back end of your season.
Next three weeks: @ Appalachian State, @ Troy, bye
Dwayne Stanford, WR-Oregon
After catching five passes in the first four games of the 2014 season, Stanford has hauled in 18 receptions, including three touchdowns, in the Ducks’ most recent four games. By comparison, Devon Allen has 13 receptions and only one touchdown during Stanford’s successful string of games.
Next three weeks: Stanford, @ Utah, bye
Be sure to check previous Waiver Wire reports for additional names that may still be available in your league.
