Week 1 NFL Waiver Wire



Gardner Minshew-QB-JAC (ESPN 14.9%) (Yahoo 26%)

After completing 19 of 20 passes and throwing for three touchdowns, Minshew could be an exciting player to have on your radar as someone who could sneak into the top-12 by season end. Minshew will also add yards with his legs. He gained 19 on five carries. There should continue to be a ton of volume for Minshew as the Jaguars defense is lacking and the reliable weapons at wide receiver (DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault).

Nyheim Hines-RB-IND (ESPN 34.4%) (Yahoo 18%)

When the Colts drafted Jonathan Taylor, it appeared along with Marlon Mack that Nyheim Hines would be regulated to a third-down role. After Week 1, Hines is more the bell-cow than a regulated running back. Hines finished with 28 yards on seven carries and caught eight balls for 45 yards and a score. Taylor (9-22) did have more carries and should continue to handle the rock. However, Hines led the team in receptions and was second in targets behind Parris Campbell and TY Hilton. Now, with Marlon Mack out for the season with a torn Achilles, Hines will continue to have a huge role behind a great offensive line.

Next up: MIN

James Robinson-RB-JAX (ESPN 29.1%) (Yahoo 56%)

Robinson was brought in as an Undrafted Free Agent, and with an injury to Devine Ozigbo and Ryquell Armstead testing positive for Covid-19, he was thrust into action. One of the reasons he was not drafted was a horrid 4.64 40-time, but he didn’t play that way. Robinson gained 62-yards rushing on 16 attempts and caught a pass that Robinson took for another 28. He is the bell-cow until further notice, and the duo of Armstead and Ozigbo is not much of a threat.

Next up: @TEN

Joshua Kelley-RB-LAC (ESPN 11.3%) (Yahoo 13%)

Kelley was drafted in the fourth round and was impressive in backing up Austin Ekeler. Kelley’s 12 carries netted him 60 yards and a touchdown, and he was heavily used inside the ten-yard line. He was not targeted but had a long for 26 yards. Many speculated that Justin Jackson would be the number two back. Kelley must have stolen that spot over a Zoom meeting (lol).

Next up: KC

Parris Campbell-WR-IND (ESPN 29.8%) (Yahoo 22%)

Campbell tied the team lead in targets (9), tied in receptions (6), and led the team in yards (71). Philip Rivers consistently looked for him on slant patterns, and they make an excellent tandem. Hilton and Campbell look as though they can be a dangerous set of weapons as rookie Michael Pittman learns the ropes. Campbell is in his second season after missing most of last year with injuries. He suffered from a broken hand, a fractured foot, and a sports hernia. With a 94th percentile SPARQ score on his athleticism, he should continue to be a threat downfield.

Next up: MIN

Anthony Miller-WR-CHI (ESPN 38.2) (Yahoo 56%)

Miller caught four of his six targets for 76 yards and a touchdown. His score came from 27-yards out to give the Bears the lead in the last two minutes of the game. Miller saw some action in the slot and looks primed to elevate his game in year three. It is still Allen Robinson as the number one wideout. Nevertheless, if Mitchell Trubisky can demonstrate why he was chosen early in the first round, the sky could be the limit for Miller.

Next up: NYG

Dallas Goedert-TE-PHI (ESPN 27.2%) (Yahoo 56%)

The tight end is a significant weapon for the Eagles, as we have seen with Zach Ertz over his career. However, Philadelphia and Ertz have been in contract negotiations, and things don’t look promising. Perhaps, they have soured on him and want to see what Goedert can them? In Week 1, Goedert caught eight passes on nine targets for 101 yards and a score.

NFL Draft Day is Here!!



Hello, my name is Dr. Jesse Morse, and I am a sports medicine doctor located in Miami, Florida.

The other thing that was frustrating to me is that if I wanted to follow all the different individual team writers and reporters, I would have to follow thousands of people on Twitter or Instagram.

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).
