Waiver Wire: NFL Week 9



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.

DeeJay DallasRB-SEA (ESPN-11.7%) (Yahoo-25%)

Being a running back for the Seattle Seahawks usually results in many fantasy points. It was no different for Dallas. On 18 carries, he ran for 41 yards and caught five passes for an additional 17, and when you toss in two touchdowns, Dallas becomes the RB4 on the week. Only a rookie, so Seattle may want to take a comprehensive look, especially in the passing game.

La’Mical Perine-RB-NYJ (ESPN-33.6%) (Yahoo-41%)

The Chiefs offense put a damper on anything ground game-oriented as they jumped out to a big lead over the Jets. Perine did look good while totaling 33-yards but saw fewer carries than Frank Gore and only got two targets. Perine could be a solid flex-option, but it’s riding on a good game script that New York is rarely in.

Nyheim Hines-RB-IND (ESPN-34.9%) (Yahoo-29%)

Most people seeing a running back from Indianapolis scoring twice would assume it was Jonathan Taylor doing the work; instead, it was Hines. Hines was wrecking ball scoring on two excellent plays, and if that wasn’t enough, he sprung into a cartwheel that he turned into spin mid-air after crossing the goal line. He is a dangerous receiver out of the backfield and could be highly utilized if Taylor misses any time.

Cam Akers-RB-LAR (ESPN-33.9%) (Yahoo-31%)

In Los Angeles, the running game involved Darrell Hendersonand Malcolm Brown. At the same time, Akers became forgotten entirely outside a snap or two. However, Henderson left the competition early, and it re-opened the door for the rookie Akers. On nine carries, he rushed for 35-yards but was behind Brown’s 10-40 stat line. Perhaps now we will get to see more of the rookie?

Damien Harris-RB-NE (ESPN-31.3%) (Yahoo-47%)

Harris rushed for his second 100+ yard game in his last four contests. He is averaging more than 5-yards per carry. The two major roadblocks for Harris is his absence as a receiver and the return of Sony Michel. Without the receptions, Harris has a low floor and is dependent on touchdowns and large rushing totals.

Others to Consider: JaMycal Harris (SF). D’Onta Foreman(TEN), Brian Hill (ATL), Eno Benjamin (ARI), Jordan Wilkins (IND), Tevin Coleman (SF), Gus Edwards (BAL).

Jalen Reagor-WR-PHI (ESPN-14.3%) (Yahoo-24%)

In his return to the lineup, Reagor posted 16 yards on three receptions but did score a touchdown. It’s not overwhelming statistical numbers, but Reagor is just a rookie and is returningfrom an injury. The Eagles are high on him, and he should continue to be involved in the offense. Keep in mind that Philadelphia is off in Week 9.

Denzel Mims-WR-NYJ (ESPN-5.7%) (Yahoo-9%)

The Jets didn’t move the ball well on offense, and Sam Darnold targeted Braxton Berrios frequently (11 times). Since Mims is a rookie, the Jets will want to get him involved, and with the Jets poorly performing, they may have to lean on the passing game consistently.

Michael Pittman-WR-IND (ESPN-5.0%) (Yahoo-7%)

T.Y. Hilton was injured last week, and he isn’t doing much anyway. Pittman was heavily involved in the offense, and he is a big receiver standing at 6’4” and weighing 223 pounds. The Colts don’t throw much, but he is an exciting player to stash if possible.

Mecole Hardman-WR-KC (ESPN-27.3%) (Yahoo-30%)

Kansas City has an exciting offense for fantasy owners to take as much ownership of their players as possible. Hardman is one that reflects the boom/bust profile. Last week against the Jets, he brought in seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown. Hardman has posted three touchdowns but also has gone three contests without a score and 30-yards or less. It could get much tighter when Sammy Watkins returns

Others to Consider: Curtis Samuel (CAR), Mike Williams(LAC), Jakobi Meyers (NE), Kendrick Bourne (SF), Quintez Cephus (DET), Auden Tate (CIN), Scotty Miller (TB), Russell Gage (ATL), Danny Amendola (DET).

Logan Thomas-TE-WAS (ESPN-8.1%) (Yahoo-23%)

Since Thomas is coming off a bye week, he gets buried by others that had stand-out weeks. In his last two games, he has at least 40 receiving yards and a score. The Redskins offense is not top-tier, but they are better with Kyle Allen at quarterback than Dwayne Haskins.

Others to Consider: Dallas Goedert (PHI). Robert Tonyan(GB). Trey Burton (IND), Albert Okwuegbunam (DEN), Jordan Reed/Ross Dwelley (SF). Darren Fells (HOU), Dalton Schultz (DAL).

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 RiversIND (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).


Running Backs:

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).


Wide Receivers:

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).


Tight Ends:

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).
