We are five games into the season and it's not too early to make some moves in your league. Plan for the future, prepare for the postseason. There are a few waiver gems still out there, but for the most part the "start now" players are already scarfed up. Who should you be targeting for the stretch run? I'll give you some options that you can look to acquire at each position, some of which may not break the bank.
Who will get you there?
Andy Dalton, CIN - Andy Dalton is currently sitting in the Top 15 (13th) and he may be on your bench, or possibly on the waiver wire. The Bengals have a favorable schedule over the next 6 weeks with games vs PIT, at KC, vs TB, BYE and at NO. Those teams are ranked 19th, 30th, 31st and 32nd in pass defense this season. Cincinnati's schedule gets harder in the second half, including a road game at Cleveland, who is currently 4th in the same category. Dalton may not win your league, but he can help you get to the playoffs where perhaps your "other quarterback" can seal the deal for you.
Alex Smith, WAS - An alternative to Andy Dalton is Alex Smith. Washington has a great middle of the fantasy season schedule that includes opponents CAR (20th pass defense), DAL (26th), at NYG (22nd), ATL (27th), at TB (31st), HOU (29th), at DAL (26th). That string of six games starts this week. Things get much tougher after Week 12, but look for Smith to have a lot of productive games in the next six weeks.
