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 11 Projections. You will not see any adds to a player over 70% ownership in two leagues.
Case Keenum, QB MIN (50.66 FDx Score/14.16 Projected Points)
13.3% ownership in ESPN leagues
27% ownership in CBS leagues
18% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Case Keenum has been achieving solid numbers since taking over for Sam Bradford. Against the Redskins he completed 21/29 passes for 304 yards with four touchdowns and two picks. His weapons are solid with Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs. Keep in mind that Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared to play, so they may change their sites if Keenum begins to struggle.
Latavius Murray RB, MIN (58.20 FDx Score/5.86 Projected Points)
61.2% ownership in ESPN leagues
66% ownership in CBS leagues
44% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Latavius Murray is getting the work routine and had 17 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown against Washington on Sunday. This makes four weeks in a row where he has had 15 or more carries in a game. He is also the man near the goal line. He won’t catch many passes but will put up enough points to make a worthwhile in flex position or in a bye-week replacement.
Rex Burkhead, RB NE (43.92 FDx Score/3.45 Projected Points)
11.7% ownership in ESPN leagues
21% ownership in CBS leagues
14% ownership in Yahoo leagues
He was heavily involved on 36 out of a possible 70 snaps and carried 10 times for 36. He also added three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown. All this against the Denver Broncos. Comparably, Dion Lewis and James White totaled 32 snaps. It’s hard to declare who will be the winner from week-to-week in New England, but Burkhead will be heavily involved while healthy.
Devontae Booker, RB DEN (66.4 FDx Score/8.16 Projected Points)
10.4% ownership in ESPN leagues
27% ownership in CBS leagues
7% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Devontae Booker had his snap count raised once again last week in the blowout loss to New England. This makes it a difficult read on the offense, as its unclear if it was planned or had to be abandoned, because of the beating put on by the Patriots. As the Broncos fall farther out of the playoffs, it is my belief they are going to want to get Booker more involved in the offense.
Willie Snead, WR NO (43.5 FDx Score/2.23 Projected Points)
27.2% ownership in ESPN leagues
33% ownership in CBS leagues
28% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Willie Snead is seeing more action now. It took him sometime to bounce back from his injury. He played 36 snaps, but still hasn’t been targeted in the past three games. However, over those three games he has seen his snap share percentage increase from 7-30-47. There are many leagues out there that have abandoned Snead, take advantage of that. It won’t be long before he starts putting up good numbers.
Corey Davis, WR TEN (52.51 FDx Score/3.6 Projected Points)
34.4% ownership in ESPN leagues
58% ownership in CBS leagues
48% ownership in Yahoo leagues
After getting hurt in week two, Davis has finally made it back in week nine. Therefore, in his last two weeks he got six receptions for 76-yards and no touchdowns. He came close to scoring last week, instead he fumbled at the goal line. Davis is a freak show in the terms of Randy Moss. He won’t perform at the level of Moss, but should generate solid numbers for your team if you need a wide receiver.
Jermaine Gresham, TE ARI (83.74 FDx Score/6.90 Projected Points)
1.4% ownership in ESPN leagues
2% ownership in CBS leagues
2% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Jermaine Gresham has been a viable starter in the last two weeks. Against the 49ers, he was able to put up two receptions and a touchdown, and Seattle allowed him to catch five balls for 65-yards and a touchdown. Uncoincidentally, this has been with Drew Stanton. New starting quarterbacks love their security blanket, which is usually the tight end. He has some prime matchups on the way, and the Cardinals already had their bye week.
NFL Draft Day is Here!!
Hello, my name is Dr. Jesse Morse, and I am a sports medicine doctor located in Miami, Florida.

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).
