Week 14 Waiver Wire Advice

smitty staff

Below are our Week 14 Waiver Wire recommendations.

Ladarius Green (TE/PIT)

He appears healthy, and he pulled in 6 receptions for 110 yards and 1TD in Week 13. He’s a strong back-end TE1 moving forward — for as long as he stays healthy that is.

Malcolm Mitchell / Chris Hogan (WR/NE)

He had 8 receptions for 82 yards in Week 13. Rob Gronkowski is out, so that almost guarantees solid targets for Mitchell moving forward! Same goes for Hogan, who will now see more targets moving forward. He pulled in 23 yards and a TD in Week 13.

Mike Gillislee (RB/BUF)

Gillislee would have great numbers per start if McCoy ever missed time. He is even flex-worthy each week in larger leagues, as he could score a TD even in his sharing situation.

Dontrelle Inman (WR/SD)

He seems to find the end zone lately, scoring last week and the week prior.

Adam Thielen (WR/MIN)

He has pulled in at least 5 receptions and at least 50 yards in each of his last three games. Last week, in Week 13, he pulled in 7 receptions for 86 yards.

Week 13 Waiver Wire

smitty staff

Dion Lewis (NE/RB)

(Available in near 50% of all leagues)
In Week 12, he ran the ball six times for 24 yards and added four catches on seven targets for 34 yards. Sure, he is sharing carries with James White and LeGarrette Blount, but he has a strong chance to bump White out of a lot of playing time. And, since he pulls in passes more than he runs, Blount and Lewis can co-exist. There is risk, but he has low-end RB1 appeal if a full go and getting those touches!

Tyreek Hill (KC/WR)

(Available in near 65-70% of all leagues)
Hill scored a rushing, receiving and return touchdown against the Broncos, becoming the first to do all three in a single game since Gale Sayers back in 1965. He isn’t likely available in any dynasty leagues, but check just in case. However, in redraft, he makes a fine WR3/4 and he is available in 60-70% of most leagues.

Tim Hightower (NO/RB)

(Available in near 50% of all leagues)
Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower keep producing awesome numbers together in New Orleans. It’s crazy how both of these rushers keep thriving. In Week 12, Hightower totaled 105 yards (51 rushing, 54 receiving) all while Ingram ran for 146 yards and 1TD, while also pulling in a receiving score. Mark Ingram was insane in Week 12, that needs to be said. He has two 140+ rushing games in the last four games. He also has 4TDs in that span. While Hightower could have some bad games coming up should Ingram continue to shine, it’s important to note how productive one of these rushers would be if starting by themselves. Hightower is a must add for that reason, and he also has strong flex value right now in larger leagues.

Malcolm Mitchell (NE/WR)

(Available in near 80-90% of all leagues)
Last week, he pulled in 4/98/1TD… this past weekend, against the Jets, he pulled in 5/42/2TDs. He’s a must-player WR3/4 in larger leagues (with upside for more), and he is a potential gem in dynasty (and not likely available in competitive dynasty leagues).

Wendell Smallwood (PHI/RB)

(Available in near 70% of all leagues)
Ryan Mathews is officially out for Monday night’s Week 12 game against the Packers, and while Darren Sproles is expected to play, Smallwood has super-strong flex value in this Monday night battle. Smallwood isn’t likely open in any dynasty leagues, but clearly redraft leaguers have continued to leave him on the waiver wire. Mistake!

More Week 13 Adds:

C.J. Fiedorowicz (HOU/TE)
Tyler Boyd (CIN/WR)
Anquan Boldin (DET/@NO)
Mohamed Sanu (ATL/WR)

Week 11 Waiver Wire

smitty staff

Hey folks… Week 11 Waiver Wire Recommendations are below. Enjoy!

Rob Kelley | RB WAS

Despite being on our Waiver Wire List a few times this year already, Rob Kelley is still available in about half of all leagues. He has excellent flex-type value, if not higher, if he continues to get starter carries. In Week 10, he rushed 22 times for 97 yards in Week 10 against the Vikings.

CJ Prosise / Thomas Rawls | RB SEA

C.J. Prosise carried the ball 17 times for 66 yards in Week 10 against the Patriots. He also pulled in seven passes for 87 yards. Christine Michael was hurt (hamstring) in this one, and Thomas Rawls is expected back from injury, so there is a chance he has a big role moving forward, but there is also a chance either Michael or Rawls get those starter carries. Grab both Prosise and Rawls in case Michael falters or gets replaced, as the starter in SEA has strong value.

Eli Rogers | WR PIT

In Week 1, Eli Rogers pulled in 6 passes for 59 yards and 1TD, but he has been kind of banged up until recently. His last two games: 6/103/0TDs and 4/42/1TD. He easily has strong fantasy WR4-type value, if not higher, moving forward.

Tyreek Hill | WR KC

His last three games: 5/98/1TD, 3/11/0TDs and 10/89/0TDs.

Cameron Brate | TE TB

Cameron Brate has been on our list before. His last three games: 3/22/1TD, 5/43/1TD and 7/84/1TD.

NOTE: Last week, James Starks was a must-add and should be ranked in right around 1-2 above if available in your league.

Week 8 Waiver Wire

smitty staff

Ok, before I list the Top Week 8 Waiver Wire Adds, let me start off by saying that make sure last week’s top adds aren’t still available. If so, you could likely miss out, as these three players will get snagged right out of the gate: Jacquizz Rodgers, Jay Ajayi, Ty Montgomery (and even Knile Davis)… Rodgers just ran for his second-straight 100-yard game and looks like a strong RB2 for the moment. Congrats to those who grabbed him two weeks ago as we advised. Also, congrats to those who grabbed Ajayi last week, again as advised… Ajayi just rushed for his second-straight 200-yard game, something that only a couple running backs have ever done in the history of the game. As for Ty Montgomery, he looks like a ‘slash’ type player that will get a handful of runs and 5+ receptions per game each and every week. Green Bay is going to use him all over the field due to Eddie Lacy’s injury.

Davante Adams (GB/WR) – In Week 7, the guy pulled in 13 receptions for 132 yards and 2TDs. Temper expectations a bit heading into Week 8, but he is a fine WR3 until he proves otherwise!

Devontae Booker (DEN/RB) – Things could change fast after the Monday night game, and we told everyone to grab him last week, so hopefully you already own him. If he gets a huge workload today (Monday night game), he will be the first player added heading into this week’s waiver process. If for some reason he doesn’t make noise and the team sticks with CJ Anderson for the most part, still grab Booker, as I believe his time is coming.

Tyrell Williams (SD/WR) – His last three outings: 5/117/1TD, 3/28/0TDs and 7/140/0TDs. Grab him as a WR3/4 moving forward!

Jamison Crowder (WAS/WR) – His last two games: 3/52/1TD and 7/108/0TDs.

Chris Thompson/Rob Kelley (WAS/RB) – After two fumbles by Matt Jones in Week 7, it’s time to look ahead and anticipate a change. Kelley would be the guy that goes nuts if starting, but the team could turn to Thompson first, so both are players to grab if you have the spots to burn.

Jack Doyle (IND/TE) – Could be a strong low-end TE1 for those looking for a cheap one.

Brandon LaFell (CIN/WR) – Solid WR4/5 type player if you need one!

Week 7 Waiver Wire

Below are your top pickups heading into Week 7 of the 2016 fantasy season. Don’t miss out on guys that can help you win in Weeks 7-16!

EDIT 10/18/16 Knile Davis (RB/GB) – The Packers have just traded for former Chiefs RB Knile Davis, who now sits as the only healthy running back on the Packers roster (with Lacy maybe looking at missing multiple weeks with his ankle, and Starks could be out up to four weeks or more). Ty Montgomery, who has experience at RB from college, could get more carries in Week 7 than anyone expects, and so could Cobb, but I’ve always loved Knile Davis, and if you remember back near two years ago, Knile was a Bold Prediction of mine that failed due to not being used. Talent has never been his problem. I love Knile in Green Bay, it’s a great situation. I just hope he gets the touches. If he does, he should thrive.

Jay Ajayi (RB/MIA) – He just rushed for 204 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6. Will he get starter carries moving forward? He should, but grab him until we know, he could be a beast down the stretch if MIA feeds him the rock.

Cameron Meredith (WR/CHI) – In Week 5, he posted 100 yards and 1TD. This past week, he again posted 100 yards. Are we looking at a rising star?

Hunter Henry (TE/SD) – Henry had 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 and is a top 5-10TE moving forward.

James White (RB/NE) – This week he pulled in 8-of-9 targets for 47 yards and two touchdowns. He had a strong receiving week last week, so in PPR, he is a must play let alone must add.

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB/TB) – Tampa is coming off the bye and we don’t know where Doug Martin is health wise yet. But, Rodgers, who rushed for 100 yards the week prior, would be a workhorse if Martin couldn’t go in Week 7.

More Adds

Devontae Booker (RB/DEN)
Cole Beasley (WR/DAL)
Torrey Smith (WR/SF)
Mike Gillislee (RB/BUF)
Tony Romo (QB/DAL)
Dion Lewis (RB/NE)
Kenny Britt (WR/LA)
Ty Montgomery (WR/GB)

Week 6 Waiver Wire

Below are the top Adds for Week 6 of the 2016 fantasy season. Obviously, make sure Jordan Howard isn’t still available, as he would be atop this list if he was. He was our top pickup recommend last week.

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB/TB)

After a huge Week 5, rushing for over 100 yards, Quizz is a must-add. It’s tough to say what is in store for Doug Martin and his return, but if he misses more time, Quizz is now the main man in TB.

Chris Hogan (WR/NE)

After pulling in 114 yards in Week 5, it’s safe to say his preseason hype was legit. Tom Brady makes him gold. Hogan has high-end fantasy WR3-type value moving forward.

Sammie Coates (WR/PIT)

He pulled in 139 yards and 1TD in Week 5. He should be owned as a bye week WR in all formats and has more upside than that if the team keeps feeding him targets.

Jeremy Kerley (WR/SF)

His last two games: 6/88/1TD and 8/102/1TD. He is looking like a solid WR3 in larger leagues moving forward.

Cameron Meredith (WR/CHI)

He pulled in 130 yards and 1TD in Week 5.

Week 4 Adds

Below are just a few names to grab off the waiver wire heading into Week 3. Of course, make sure guys like Dak Prescott, Christine Michael and Josh Gordon (due back from his suspension in Week 5) aren’t available, for instance if you play in a very small league.

Updated: 9/27/16

Jordan Howard (RB/CHI) could start for 4-6 weeks With Jeremy Langford (ankle) likely out that long with the ankle injury. Howard, who is 6-0, 222 pounds, is the top pick up at this point given the new 4-6 week Langford timetable.

Davante Adams (WR/GB) could be set to produce consistent WR3/4 type numbers moving forward, as he found the end zone in Week 3.

Jamison Crowder (WR/WAS) – He pulled in 4/78/1TD in Week 3 and really is a player WAS counts on. He could be a fine WR3/4 in larger leagues moving forward.

Terrell Pryor (WR/CLE) – He pulled in 8 receptions for 144 yards, but also threw for 35 yards and ran for 21 yards and 1TD. He lines up in the wild cat formation and rotates at QB. Expect this to continue until Josh McCown returns (potentially returning in a couple weeks) and expect Pryor to be a sneaky WR3/4 moving forward.

Trevor Siemian (QB/DEN) – While he wont do what he did in Week 3 every week, which was 312 yards and 4TDs, he’s a fine backup QB in 2016, and a solid match-up start. Most of all, his solid play makes D-Thomas and E-Sanders owners smile, as their fantasy stock returns to form.

More Adds

Rob Kelley (RB/WAS)
Kenny Stills (WR/MIA)

Week 3 Waiver Wire

Players Not Likely Available

Make sure these guys aren’t sitting on waivers. If so, grab them ASAP!

Stefon Diggs (WR/MIN) – Top level WR3 moving forward, with upside for more!
Corey Coleman (WR/CLE) – With the QB situation a mess in CLE, it’s tough to say how consistent he will be, but a must own!

Available In Most Leagues

These players are far more likely to be available in fantasy leagues than the group above.

Travis Benjamin (WR/SD) – High upside as the team’s likely no. 1 moving forward!
Jerick McKinnon (RB/MIN) – Most own with AP on the mend for a while.
Charles Sims (RB/TB) – Martin is banged up and questionable for Week 3.
Tyrell Williams (WR/SD) – Benjamin might be better for 2016, but this kid has huge upside for the future, and nice WR3/4 value in fantasy moving forward.
Devontae Booker (RB/DEN) – Huge sleeper stash!
Kenyan Drake/Jay Ajayi (RBs/MIA) – RBBC mess in MIA!
Dennis Pitta (TE/BAL) – Solid numbers lately, but can he stay healthy?
Fozzy Whittaker/Cameron Artis Payne/Mike Tolbert (RBs/CAR) – Stewart could be out at least a week. Fozzy is the guy to own, for now. This could be a mess of a RBBC situation.
DeAndre Washington (RB/OAK) – Nice stash.

Week 15 Waiver Wire Adds

Week 10 Waiver Wire Adds

Top Three Pick-Ups For Week 10

Karlos Williams, RB, Bills – If starting, and it sounds like (as of now) LeSean McCoy could play Thursday night, Williams would be a beast. He is a must-own regardless, as McCoy continues to get banged up. Williams is one of the best backup running backs in the NFL right now.

Jeremy Langford, RB, Bears – If you need a RB this week and this guy is still out there, he needs to be grabbed ASAP. He has 100 total yard upside each week that he starts, and with Matt Forte banged up, he is currently starting.

James Starks, RB, Packers – Eddie Lacy is struggling bad, and he is not banged up. Given he is having weight issues and banged up, the odds of injury go up with him. Starks is a sneaky RB to own and might already be producing decent flex numbers even if Lacy is on the field.
