Rick Kamla’s Week 5 Waiver Wire

1. John Brown 10-144-0

CBSSports.com says, “With Carson Palmer taken out with a concussion on Sunday, this might end up a moot point, but we finally saw the John Brown we’ve been waiting to see in Week 4. He struggled with concussions of his own in the preseason, and entered the game Sunday with just 8 catches for 92 yards on 18 targets. He bested the first two marks — and nearly matched the third — against the Rams, hauling in 10 of 16 targets for 144 yards. Brown enjoyed a breakout season last year, but hasn’t quite looked like himself so far. However, after seeming to take a backseat not just to Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, but also Jaron Brown after the first two games, Brown has reemerged as a big part of the Cardinals’ passing game over the last two games, with 27 targets and 211 yards. If Palmer is forced to sit out in Week 5 against the 49ers, it might be hard to rely on Brown, but at the very least, he looks like a must-own player yet again.”

2. Robert Woods 7-89-0

3. Sammie Coates 6-79-0

According to SI.com, “Another game, another gain of 40-plus yards for the second-year man from Auburn. With his 47-yard catch in Sunday night’s demolition of the Chiefs, Coates now has five gains of 40 or more yards. Never mind that his target load has been relatively light: This is a dude who can do a lot with a little. It’s also reasonable to think that Coates is endearing himself to QB Ben Roethlisberger by repeatedly making big plays. Do yourself a favor and stash Coates away.”

4. CJ Spiller 2-12-0, 2-5-1

5. Eddie Royal 7-111-1

6. Hunter Henry 4-61-1

7. John Kuhn 2-5-2, 2-7-1

8. Brian Quick 2-69-2

9. Dontrelle Inman 7-120-1

10. Paxton Lynch 14/24 170 1-0
