Waiver Wire Rankings: Week 15
By Bob Miller (@DynastBobFF)
Week 14 was tough. Kyler tears his ACL, Baltimore is down to their 3rd quarterback, Pickett gets hurt, etc. Ugh.. let's move on. By the looks at what's on the Waiver Wire, there may not be very much that can help you in your fantasy playoffs. Maybe a handful of guys if available. First, let's take a look at some notable injuries to keep an eye on:
BAL: Lamar Jackson (knee)
HOU: Dameon Pierce (ankle)
BAL: Tyler Huntley (concussion)
DEN: Courtland Sutton (hamstring)
SEA: Kenneth Walker (ankle)
CIN: Hayden Hurst (calf)
CIN: Joe Mixon (concussion)
Now let's check my Week 15 Waiver Wire Rankings:
|30||Odell Beckham Jr.||FA||WR14|
Quarterback: Well.. Brock Purdy came out of nowhere. He had an impressive game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Don'e be scared to roll him out there if you're in a pinch. He's an ideal pick-up for the Lamar Jackson/Kyler Murray owner. Jared Goff had him a game as well against Minnesota. Those are your top two QB pick-ups this week. Goff's matchup is a more difficult against the Jets, however I expect Amon-Ra St. Brown to be peppered with targets in that contest. On the other side of the field Mike White should have a good game against Detroit's secondary. He can be trusted as well.
Running Back: I really like what I'm seeing from Jerick McKinnon. He just keeps getting it done when it comes to fantasy. Kansas City is getting the ball to him in different ways. After putting up 32.40 fantasy points in Week 14, he needs be owned in all formats. Zonovan "Bam" Knight shouldn't be available. So if he is, grab him immediately. Same goes for Cam Akers and James Cook. All other RBs are dart throws.
Wide Receiver: I have said for weeks and weeks to pick up Donovan Peoples-Jones. He looks like the #1 in Cleveland. If he is available, he should be the #1 priority and plugged into your starting lineups. Chris Moore is a player worth grabbing as well. He could be the WR1 in Houston moving forward. DeMarcus Robinson is a safe get as well. I like his floor for the rest of this season.
Tight End: Evan Engram was an absolute stud on Sunday putting up a ridiculous 39.20 fantasy points. He is a must-have if available. Chigoziem Okonkwo is becoming a go-to guy in Tennessee and should be universally owned as well. Any other waiver wire TE is just a crap shoot.
