Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Danario Alexander Ready To Hurt You, Himself Again

I'm surprised, but not stunned—after causing a brief Fantasy Football waiver wire stampede following his first breakout game, even the most dedicated sleeper hunters have thus far steered clear of Danario Alexander, the St. Louis Rams' number-one wide receiver with knees of clay. The big Rams fantasy winner this week is, delightfully, Sam Bradford—up 2.1% this week to 30% owned in ESPN fantasy leagues, perhaps as people ponder Ben Roethlisberger's sprained foot and the subsequent boot.

Even with Alexander showing off, and Brandon Gibson and Laurent Robinson showing signs of life, the Rams' top added receiver is once again slot receiver and Bradford Pressure-Release Valve Danny Amendola, who's owned in 29% of leagues.

Unfortunately for Rams fans, their biggest breakout candidate might be done for the season. Michael Hoomanawanui, who looked ready to wrest control of all those Bradford dump-offs to the tight end from his less-dynamic counterparts, Daniel Fells and Billy Bajema, encountered his second high ankle sprain of the season soon after his big touchdown reception Sunday. At least, as Turf Show Times notes, he might be back for the real postseason, if not the fantasy version of same.
