Week 15 Waiver Wire

Week 15 Waiver Wire

Waiver Group: May be available to you (ownership above 50% Lower than 90%) 

QB: BUF Josh Allen (85%), CLE Baker Mayfield (65%), Jimmy Garoppolo (70%) 

RB: GB Jamal Williams (69%), CLE Kareem Hunt (88%), PHI Miles Sanders (89%)

WR: CAR Curtis Samuel (74%),SEA DK MetCalf (86%),SF Deebo Samuel (58%), NYJ Robbie Anderson (60%), HOU WIll Fuller (73%) MIA Devante Parker (87%) 

TE: IND Jack Dolye (70%), PHI Dallas Goedert (59%)

Waiver Group: Should be available to you (ownership under 50%) 


TEN Ryan Tannehill  (43%) –  I’m not sure what Tannehill needs to do to be added in more leagues but I hope this is the last week id be allowed to have him here. He is a top three fantasy QB since becoming the starter in week 7. He does have a division game this week that just let Drew Lock dominate them. Tannehill can win you a championship, especially with this matchup and the fact that he still averages 19 fantasy points per game.

MIA Ryan Fitzpatrick (18%) – The Beard failed us in week 14 but he gets another opportunity to do well as they play the Giants. Besides the Dolphins themselves, the Giants allow QBs to have average more points than their season average in every opponent they have faced. I think if you made it this far with him last week then giving him another shot should do it. 

Other Group of QBs: CAR Kyle Allen (16%), JAX Garnder Minshew (14%), NYG Eli Manning (3%),

Allen has a decent matchup vs a Seattle team who has been allowing 280 yards & two touchdowns per game over the last two weeks. Minshew has a great matchup vs the Raiders who have been able to stop any fantasy QB.  If Manning starts in week 15 then he gets a great matchup vs the Dolphins.  

Running Backs

SF Raheem Mostert (38%) – Mostert seem to win the backfield again in a shot out battle with the Saints.  He had led in carries & targets during the game and had over 15 fantasy points. The Saints could continue to ride the hot hand vs the Falcons and have another productive fantasy day.

MIA Patrick Laird (15%) – Laird becomes an interesting prospect for week 15 as he goes up against the Giants. They aren’t the worst team against the run but they did just let no name Boston Scott have 100 all purpose yards against them. Enter Laird who can run & catch the ball for the Dolphins. If he is able to gain 15 carries against and perhaps six targets then he could end up with a great day.  

Other Group of RBs: PIT Benny Snell (44%), Min Alexander Mattison DET Bo Scarbrough  (42%), OAK DeAndre Washington (4%), WAS Adrian Peterson (42%), WAS Chris Thompson (12%), KC Darwin Thompson (13%)

If Connor remains out, Snell continues to carry the workload. Mattison had a solid game and is the number one handcuff in football.  Scarbrough is another option just strictly based on usage.  DeAndre Washington played well in relief of Jacobs and scored 18 fantasy points in week 14.  Has value if Jacobs doesn’t play. AP has a tough matchup vs the Eagles but with Guice’s injury AP should control the carries. Chris Thompson has ppr value with seven receptions in week 14.  Darwin Thompson does see PPR value as well. 

Wide Receivers

TEN AJ Brown (26%) – Brown will be a hot pick after a monster game on Sunday.  He has now two 130 yard and a touchdown in two of his last three games.  He has high potential of being a fantasy stud. He hasn’t been able to do it in back to back games yet so there is concerns. He does have a favorable matchup against the Texans. That game could have shot out possibilities with the division on the line.

TB Breshad Perriman (0%)- Perriman is widely available in leagues and could be in line for some high volume. Mike Evan is not expected back and could be thrown into the starting lineup.  He has back to back 80 yard games now. Could be a league winner. 

JAX Chris Conley (19%) –  Conley has already shown that he can provide us fantasy value for fantasy teams. From week 11 to 13 he had at least 4 receptions for 50 yards. If DJ Chark were to miss time this week then expect Conley to see targets. He also has a favorable matchup against the Oakland Raiders too. This could be one of those blow up games for him .

NYG Darius Slayton (33%) – Not common to have four receivers that need to be talked about but Slayton showed up on Monday night Football. His 154 yards and two touchdowns caught our eyes as we head into week 15.  There was concern that him and Manning wouldn’t be on the same page but they ended up looking well together. He gets a fantastic matchup against the Dolphins who let another burner in Robbie Anderson go over a 100 yards. You can trust Slayton for your week 15 matchup.

Other Group of Wrs: DAL Randell Cobb(35%), BUF Cole Beasley (35%), ATL Russell Gage(8%), IND Zach Pascal (32%), MIA Allen Hurns (1%), SF Kendrick  Bourne (1%), CHI Anthony Miller (20%), PIT James Washington (35%), PIT Diontae Johnson (11%), 

Cobb continue to be part of a pass heavy offense. Beasley has three straight TD games while John Brown gets the tougher matchups. Pascal continues to be the WR 1 for the colts with a decent matchup in week 15. Hurns could see more targets if Parker were to miss week 15 game. Bourne has four touchdowns in six games and gets Atlanta in week 15.  Miller has had three straight games with at least 10 fantasy points. Washington & Johnson both have flash potential but they are most of a high risk play.  Gage should also see more targets with Calvin Ridley out for the year.

Tight Ends

LAR Tyler Higbee (13%) – Higbee has dominated the last two weeks with back to back 15 point games. He has taken advantage of Everett’s injury and should continue to play well going into week 15 vs the cowboys. 

MIA Mike Gesicki(28%) – Gesicki was a major disappointment on Sunday. He’ll get a chance to redeem himself against the Giants.  The g-men have been good against TEs but recently especially on Monday vs the Eagles, they were torched. Devante Parker is injured so Gesicki could see more targets his way. Opportunity could lead him to success.

Other Group of TE: CLE David Njoku (29%), CAR Ian Thomas (1%), BAL Hayden Hurst (1%) DEN Noah Fant (29%),  TB OJ Howard(34%), TB Cameron Brate(4%) 

Njoku has the best week 15 matchup vs the worst team against TEs.  Thomas is worth an add if Olsen is out. He does play a favorable matchup vs Seattle.  Hurst could play a bigger role if Mark Andrews were to miss. Fant has been a favorite target to the rookie QB. Howard & Brate could see an increase in targets with Evans most likely done for the season. 

Deeper League 

CHI Mitch Trubisky 

BAL Gus Edwards

OAK Jalen Richard

PHI Boston Scott

IND Hyheim Hines 

KC Spencer Ware

MIA Myles Gaskin

WAS Steven Sims Jr

TB Justin Watson
