Baller Move:  Add in Deeper Leagues Immediately

Analysis:  Greene may seem like an odd person to see here on the waiver wire sleepers list, as he hasn’t really done much for fantasy football owners in 2013.  But that may all be changing soon.  Coach Munchak announced today that he plans to give Greene “15 carries per game” moving forward, as long as he remains healthy.  This is a bit surprising, given that Greene hasn’t had many carries this year, but at the same time Chris Johnson has been mostly ineffective.  The plan was always to get Greene involved in the running game this year, and now that he’s healthy it looks like he will get his chance.  Any running back getting 15+ touches per game becomes immediately viable for fantasy football.  It may be best to see what truly transpires in week 9, but regardless the Titans have a juicy matchup versus the Jaguars in week 10.  Running backs with this type of volume are rarely available off the waiver wire, especially later in the week after waivers run.  So if you have room on your roster, are a Johnson owner, or are looking for a RB flyer – Greene should be targeted as a week 9 sleeper off the waiver wire.
