Week 1 Waiver Wire: RB Pickups


RB Mike Bell (Saints)- RB Pierre Thomas is expected to sit this week against the Lions. Thomas is suffering from a MCL sprain and a minor laceration on the same knee. He did not practice yesterday and the Saints should not play him to risk further injury. Last season  Bell scored his lone TD vs. the Lions.  He rushed for 115 yards on 15 carries during the preseason and makes a strong flex play this week.

RB James Davis- Jamal Lewis barely broke 1,000 yards last season and averaged 3.6 yards per carry. He is now 30 years old and his load could be decreased. Davis, was selected in the sixth round (same round as  RB Terrell Davis) out of Clemson.  He has  has good size 5’11” 218 pounds and could eventually take over the starting job. The rookie ran for 186 yards on 24 carries, averaging  to 7.8 yards per carry.

Honorable mention: Glenn Coffee (49ers)
