Paul Charchian's Top Adds - Week 5

Allen Hurns – The Jaguars' No. 2 receiver, Allen Hurns, has been remarkably consistent.  He's managed to accumulate more than 60 yards in every game, and he's now scored in back to back games.  He's actually got more receptions than No. 1 wideout Allen Robinson.  As a Jaguar, his upside is pretty limited, but he's a solid bye week fill-in. Blind bidding recommendation: 10%

Willie Snead – Rookie receiver Willie Snead has seen his snap count rise from 18 in Week 1 to 48 last week. He caught all six of his targets from Drew Brees last week. If you've got Brandon Coleman, you should make the same switch that the Saints have made. For a very raw project out of Ball State, Snead has done remarkably well, catching 16 of 20 passes thrown his way. The Saints schedule might be the league's easiest. Blind bidding recommendation: 7%

Kamar Aiken – With Steve Smith out for a month, Kamar Aiken is thrust into the team's No. 1 receiver role. The four-year journeyman may not be ready for it, but he's got no choice. His talent is pretty middling, but he brings some decent size to the position, and can be a physical player.  Maybe those traits will help him.  Blind bidding recommendation: 5%

Crockett Gillmore – A lot of people dropped Crockett Gillmore last week when he couldn't play on Thursday night. I don't blame them.  But, the Steve Smith injury means that Gillmore is going to get a lot of attention when he's healthy, which could be as early as this week. Blind bidding recommendation: 5%

Christine Michael – Former Seahawk Christine Michael finally got onto the field last week, albeit only for one carry.  Joseph Randle has hardly cemented his starter's status (2.3 YPC last week), and Darren McFadden hasn't done anything to suggest he's ready to lead the Cowboys. At some point in the next month, Michael may get the opportunity to show that he's the lead back the team needs. Blind bidding recommendation: 5%

Chris Thompson – The ugly Washington running back committee has turned even murkier with the addition of Chris Thompson.  Most people viewed Thompson as a change-of-pace pass-catching back, but in consecutive weeks he's looked better than Alfred Morris or Matt Jones. I'm not sure you want any part of this rotation, but if you're in a pinch, Thompson looks rosterable in big leagues. Blind bidding recommendation: 3%

Duke Johnson – I love that the Browns finally started using Duke Johnson as a receiver last week. He posted nine receptions, 85 yard, and a beautiful, long touchdown catch.  His running, though, remains moribund (just 3.2 YPC!).  And, we can't count on many more 10-target games. Blind bidding recommendation: 3%

Reggie Bush – Reggie Bush is back from his Week 1 injury, and saw limited action last week.  That should change in the future, though. As the team's pass-catching back, he'll get plenty of use, as the Niners' defense frequently has the team playing from behind. Blind bidding recommendation: 3%

Jamison Crowder – Media reports say that DeSean Jackson is still a long way from returning from his hamstring injury. Jamison Crowder works out of the slot, so he's not a direct replacement for Jackson, but he's been way more active than Andre Roberts or Ryan Grant.  The rookie has been targeted 18 times over the past two weeks. And last week, he was on the field for 62 plays, second only to Pierre Garcon's 66 among wideouts. Blind bidding recommendation: 2%

Zach Zenner – Between injury and ineffectiveness, Joique Bell's contributions to the Lions have been zilch.  Rookie Zach Zenner got three touches on Monday night, but could be in line for more work. Blind bidding recommendation: 2%

Roy Helu – Latavius Murray has always been an injury risk, and we're starting to see the nicks accumulate already.  He was in and out of last week's game, and Roy Helu is his immediate backup. Helu isn't a gifted runner, but he's got great hands, and is a valuable handcuff behind a perpetual injury risk. Blind bidding recommendation: 2%

Josh McCown – I'm shocked that Josh McCown has posted 350 yards and two touchdowns in back-to-back games. But, I'm looking at the box scores right now, and yep, that's what's happened.  McCown is startable next week against the Ravens' slumping secondary.   But after that he faces Denver and St.Louis, so he's probably a one-week player for your team.
