Jerricho Cotchery (WR, PIT) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Matt Hartman - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue monitoring (10+ teams)

ANALYSIS:  I will say on record that I do not think that Cotchery is going to hold his position (slot receiver) over Markus Wheaton.  However, until Wheaton gets the opportunity, Cotchery will continue to be the warm body for the Steelers.  The Steelers defense has not been great this year, which has necessitated a lot more passing as they are playing from behind. In Week Four, Cotchery was the main beneficiary of that increased air attack, with five catches on six targets for 103 yards and a TD.  Cotchery will regress, which is why I wouldn’t recommend him in standard formats at this time.
