While writing the Pass Plays article at this time of year, I always think of that classic line by ESPN analysts Chris Berman and Tom Jackson: "Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is a trend."

We haven't quite hit the level where players can fall under the trend category, but anyone hitting the coincidence category is almost certainly a high-percentage waiver-wire pickup. There are nine pass-catchers who fit that description this week.


To read why Demaryius Thomas is a safe bet to be this season's Hakeem Nicks, plus eight other pass-catchers to target on your waiver wire this week before they get scooped up, sign up for ESPN Insider today.
