The FDx Wire grasps the traditional waiver-wire report. However, we have added our FDx Score to illustrate how our proprietary algorithms feel about the player. The higher the number, the better that player will perform. Also, includes a projected point total for the week. Visit The Fantasy Doctors Analytics HERE for our Top Week 10 Projections. You will not see any adds to a player over 70% ownership in two leagues.
Jacoby Brissett, QB IND (45.23 FDx Score/12.5 Projected Points)
14.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
59% ownership in CBS leagues
19.8% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Jacoby Brissett put the Houston Texans on ice last week as he completed 20 of 30 passes for 308-yards and two touchdowns and 12 carries on two runs. He hit T.Y. Hilton twice for touchdowns. One was a 45-yarder and then hit him again for 80-yards. The long gainer was mostly due to Hilton diving over a defender and not being ruled down, got up and completed the score. This is the second week now where he has thrown for two-touchdowns. He now has a 10-4 total touchdown to interception ratio.
Damien Williams (51.93 FDx Score/4.69 Projected Points)/Kenyan Drake (73.19 FDx Score/10.15 Projected Points) RB, MIA
23.8/57.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
50/85% ownership in CBS leagues
33/53% ownership in Yahoo leagues
The Dolphins shipped off Jay Ajayi which opened the door for Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake. This is a toss-up situation as both players should get equal time on the field. Against the Oakland Raiders the experiment was first tried and as expected it was split. Williams had seven carries for 14-yards while Drake had nine rushes for 69-yards. Williams caught six passes for 47-yards and Drake pulled in six for 35-yards. The difference is that Williams scored on one of his receptions.
Devontae Booker, RB DEN (51.07 FDx Score/4.57 Projected Points)
5.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
21% ownership in CBS leagues
4% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Even though the running back committee is backloaded in Denver, Booker has the freshest legs. He is coming off an injury that has kept him out for most of the season. Against the Chiefs he carried the rock six times for 40-yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes. He will remain the backup to C.J. Anderson, but he has a lot of potential to get more shares as the Broncos slip deeper out of the playoffs.
Corey Clement, RB PHI (Not Ranked)
0.8% ownership in ESPN leagues
5% ownership in CBS leagues
2% ownership in Yahoo leagues
The Philadelphia Eagles have a crowded cabinet when it comes to running backs. Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, Wendall Smallwood, and now Corey Clement. It’s a good thing that both Darren Sproles and Donnel Pumphrey are both out for the season. Clement is a mixture of both Sproles and Ajayi and he got 12 carries which he turned into 51-yards against the Broncos. This is the second consecutive week with 50+ yards. Clement has totaled 105-yards on 22 carries (4.77 ypc). He wont take over Ajayi nor Blount, but he should continue to get 10-12 carries a game.
Robert Woods, WR LAR (58.68 FDx Score/4.58 Projected Points)
26.3% ownership in ESPN leagues
25% ownership in CBS leagues
35% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Jared Goff and Robert Woods exposed whichever defense the New York Giants decided to throw their direction. Woods would score twice and gain 70-yards on four receptions. The first came on a third-and-33. On a short pass, he was able to play Frogger all the way into the end zone, maneuvering his way through the defense. His second was a shorty four-yard play. Woods and the Rams will take on the weak secondary of the Texans next week, so he could double-up again.
Marquise Goodwin, WR SFO (68.3 FDx Score/6.78 Projected Points)
9.3% ownership in ESPN leagues
15% ownership in CBS leagues
12% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Goodwin is a playmaker and a boom or bust fantasy option. For instance, in the last three games he has six receptions for 148 yards. That is a 24.6 yard average per catch. In that, however is zero touchdowns and he didn’t catch a single pass in one game in that set. The 49ers are hurting though. With both Kittle and Garcon out, Goodwin could come into play a lot more.
Cole Beasley, WR DAL (46.32 FDx Score/2.67 Projected Points)
17.2% ownership in ESPN leagues
30% ownership in CBS leagues
19% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Beasley was good on four of six targets for 24-yards and two touchdowns. That isn’t going to light the pinball machine when it comes to just four-yards a catch. The reason why I like him is that Dez Bryant could be out anywhere between one and three weeks. He hasn’t had more than four receptions in a game, but I think that will improve with Bryant out of the lineup for a bit. Also, don’t forget Zeke missing time as a possibility as well.
Curtis Samuel, WR CAR (51.85 FDx Score/3.49 Projected Points)
4.9% ownership in ESPN leagues
12% ownership in CBS leagues
9% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Samuel hasn’t done much as a rookie, however, with the trade of Kelvin Benjamin it opens the door for the multi-talent wide receiver. In eight games this season he has 10 receptions on 19 targets for 70-yards, he also has 64 yards rushing. Last week he did get the most receptions and tied for most targets. Three receptions on five targets. Willing to take a risk with a high ceiling receiver, Samuel should be your guy to grab.
NFL Draft Day is Here!!

Waiver Wire: NFL Week 14
Fantasy football teams are starting to take shape. Hitting the waiver wire is a critical task in filling the holes or adding significant depth, especially as we enter bye-weeks and an increasing list of injuries. My goal is to find you the best player available for the lowest owned percentage. Therefore, you will see some of the more prominent names under others to consider.
Philip Rivers–IND (ESPN-16.5%) (Yahoo-40%)
Rivers has averaged at least 292 passing yards and two touchdowns in his last six games, and he just feels short of theaverage against Houston with 285 yards and two scores. In the next two weeks, the Colts will face Las Vegas, who allows over 20 Fantasy Points Per Game to quarterbacks, and Houston. Getting Rivers will bring you a top streaming signal-caller for two-straight weeks.
Others to Consider: Jalen Hurts (PHI), Mitchell Trubisky(CHI), Sam Darnold (NYJ), Tua Tagovailoa (MIA), Baker Mayfield (CLE).
Cam Akers-LAR (ESPN-35.8%) (Yahoo-53%)
Akers has seen an increase in snaps over the last few weeks, and he may have full ownership after his 21 carries for 72 yards while catching a pass for another 22 yards and a score. Both Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson will have a role, but Akers should be the bell-cow. The Rams tried him at the goal line on several attempts, but he couldn’t punch it in. Rams face the Patriots and Jets in the next few weeks, and both teams he should exploit for good fantasy performances.
Cordarrelle Patterson-CHI (ESPN-4.8%) (Yahoo-7%)
Patterson has become a running back, and he fits the role well. David Montgomery will be the bell-cow when healthy, but Patterson has gotten extensive looks. Against the Lions, Patterson carried the rock 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown. Patterson has spent his career as a receiver; therefore, catching the ball is no issue. The Bears have Houston this week, and they are horrible against the run.
Ty Johnson-NYJ (ESPN-0.3%) (Yahoo-2%)
The ancient one Frank Gore was the Jets bell-cow until he suffered a concussion. Enter Johnson, who rushed 22 times for 104 yards and a score. Johnson showed promise and someone who deserves more of a look. He will face the Seahawks and Rams next, but he is of good value this late in the season.
Others to Consider: Peyton Barber (WAS), Phillip Lindsay(DEN), Gus Edwards (BAL), Carlos Hyde (SEA), Jeff Wilson(SF), Ito Smith (ATL), Benny Snell (PIT), Adrian Peterson(DET).
T.Y. Hilton-IND (ESPN-47.0%) (Yahoo-45%)
Through 11-weeks, Hilton was sitting on the garbage pile. Then against the Titans, he caught his first touchdown on the season to go along with four receptions for 81 yards. It got even better against the Texans as Hilton brought in 8 balls on 11 targets for 110 yards and a score. He is looking more and more like the stud we drafted him to be. Now the Colts face the Raiders and Texans in back-to-back weeks.
Jalen Guyton-LAC (ESPN-0.3%) (Yahoo-0%)
Guyton was on speed-dial for Justin Herbert. He targeted his receiver seven times, and Guyton brought in two for 38 yards. Fantasy owners may wonder how Guyton can be valuable with Mike Williams, but looking at the numbers and there isn’t much difference. On the season, Guyton has 20-369-3 while Williams stat line 36-572-4 in 11 games. That is just one reception and 18-yards more on average. The Chargers have Atlanta and Las Vegas next, which are prime spots for exploitation.
Rashard Higgins-CLE (ESPN-3.4%) (Yahoo-8%)
Higgins is the one that looks to be the number two receiver, and he lit up the Titans last week for six receptions, 95 yards, and a touchdown. Higgins has deep speed and will make plays downfield. The schedule will be tough next week against Baltimore, but the Giants and Jets could be an easy route for teams in the playoffs and championship.
Others to Consider: Tim Patrick (DEN), Keke Coutee (HOU), Sterling Shepard (NYG), Nelson Agholor (LAS), DenzilMims (NYJ), Breshad Perriman (NYJ), Gabriel Davis (BUF), Allen Lazard (GB).
Logan Thomas-WFT (ESPN-24.9%) (Yahoo-40%)
The Washington Football Team likes to target Thomas, which was prevalent against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Afternoon Football. Thomas brought in nine balls for 98 yards and a touchdown on nine targets. Even outside this performance, he is getting at least four targets each game. Thomas has another tough performance next week against San Francisco, but the Seahawks and Panthers are scheduled for Weeks 15 and 16.
Others to Consider: Jordan Reed (SF), Cole Kmet (CHI), Anthony Firsker (TEN), Dalton Schultz (DAL), Kyle Rudolph (MIN), Jacob Hollister (SEA), Jordan Akins(HOU).
