Week 14 Waiver Wire Watchlist: QB

Groups on a Week 14 bye: Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles

Cam Newton, Panthers (42 p.c owned in Yahoo leagues) vs. ATL

Newton struggled in opposition to Miami, however he’ll be coming off of a bye week and ought to be extra comfy the offense. With Atlanta rankings as a bottom-four protection in opposition to fantasy QBs, Cam has sufficient upside to do harm on this one — assuming he is nonetheless beginning.

Taylor Heinicke, Washington (35) vs. DAL

Dallas is only a middle-of-the-pack protection in opposition to QBs, however as we have talked about in latest weeks, Heinicke must be thought-about in impartial matchups primarily based on his physique of labor this season. Dallas ought to rating with ease, so anticipate Heinicke’s cross makes an attempt to be excessive.

Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars (30) @ TEN

Lawrence carries danger into any matchup, however Tennessee has the second-most QB-friendly protection within the league. Mac Jones, Trevor Siemian, and Tyrod Taylor had good fantasy days in opposition to the Titans, so it isn’t out of the realm of prospects for Lawrence to have a QB1 week.

Taysom Hill, Saints (20) @ Jets

It appears like Hill goes to be the starter in New Orleans, and he averaged over 20 fantasy factors per sport (FPPG) in his 4 begins final season. You realize the drill: He can have an awesome fantasy day with restricted passing success primarily based on his speeding upside.

Teddy Bridgewater, Broncos (20) vs. DET

There is a state of affairs the place Denver merely runs the ball at will because it did in opposition to the Chargers, so Bridgewater won’t have the amount for a giant fantasy day. Nonetheless, he ought to be in scoring place typically, so two or three touchdowns is not that unlikely.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Watchlist: RB

Groups on a Week 14 bye: Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles

David Johnson, Texans (51); Rex Burkhead (7), Texans

This workforce, offense, and backfield aren’t arrange properly for fantasy success, however we’ll proceed to observe these guys. Their Week 14 opponent is Seattle, who provides up the second-most FPPG to RBs, so Johnson and possibly even Burkhead can nearly be handled as RB streamers.

Alex Collins (48); DeeJay Dallas (7), Seahawks

This duo sort of reminds us of the Texans’ backfield, however Dallas is getting used within the pass-catcher position whereas Collins continues to get essentially the most carries. Collins’ ceiling is low, however he does have considerably of a good workload. Look out for Dallas to doubtlessly have sneaky upside within the fantasy playoffs.

D’Onta Foreman (44); Dontrell Hilliard (39), Titans

Hilliard and Foreman have proven loads of flashes of explosiveness, and since they each rushed for 100-plus yards in opposition to the Patriots, we now have to observe them shifting ahead. It is robust to say which man is healthier to roster, however taking a flier on one in every of them is a brilliant transfer.

Boston Scott (36); Jordan Howard (14), Eagles

Scott is extra beneficial in the mean time, however Howard might be concerned within the run-heavy Eagles’ offense when he returns from a knee damage.

Ty Johnson (32); Tevin Coleman (24), Jets

This RBBC acquired slightly bit less complicated to determine when Michael Carter (ankle) went down, nevertheless it’s nonetheless clearly not the group with the very best upside. Coleman appears just like the clear-cut contact chief, however we anticipate Johnson to be extra energetic within the passing sport going ahead.

Matt Breida, Payments (34)

Is Breida one of the best working again on the Payments’ roster? It actually appears that manner, and it isn’t too shocking. Over the previous three weeks, he is had performances of 18.0, 7.7, and 13.5 (PPR) fantasy factors, and his emergence induced Zack Moss to be a wholesome scratch in Week 12. It is robust to utterly belief him, however he is one other man with sneaky upside within the fantasy playoffs.

Notable Handcuffs — Sony Michel, Rams (42); Devontae Booker (31), Giants; Jeff Wilson Jr., 49ers (33); Samaje Perine, Bengals, (5)

Alexander Mattison, Jamaal Williams, and Chuba Hubbard had been on this listing final week, and now they’re projected starters of their subsequent video games. Any of those 4 guys may very well be subsequent.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Watchlist: WR

Groups on a Week 14 bye: Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles

Kadarius Toney, (45); Sterling Shepard (29), Giants

These two have fallen dramatically in possession due to their damage considerations, however once more, the fantasy playoffs loom, and these guys have larger ceilings than a whole lot of gamers rostered forward of them.

A.J. Inexperienced, Cardinals (42)

Inexperienced has posted double-digit fantasy factors in six video games this season, so he is playable when the matchup is true. DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) ought to be again quickly, however can we actually depend on him staying wholesome? Inexperienced is sort of seen as a “handcuff WR.”

Laviska Shenault, Jaguars (40)

Shenault was out-snapped by Laquon Treadwell final week, so we may be getting to some extent the place Jacksonville refuses to characteristic him it doesn’t matter what. Nonetheless, a matchup with Tennessee in Week 14 means he ought to be on the streaming radar.

Kendrick Bourne, Patriots (35)

Bourne is the WR20 in commonplace and WR24 in PPR leagues, so simply primarily based on that, it is sort of absurd he is solely rostered in lower than 40 p.c of leagues.

DeVante Parker (33); Will Fuller (23), Dolphins

Parker (hamstring) and Fuller (finger) have to return again sooner or later, proper? We have stated all of it yr, however these guys are good stashes since Tua Tagovailoa is enjoying at a excessive degree.

T.Y Hilton, Colts (28)

Hilton has solely performed in 4 video games from begin to end, and in two of these video games, he had both 80 yards or a landing. He is not an attractive waiver acquisition, however he may very well be price one thing.

Russell Gage, Falcons (24)

In 4 of his previous 5 video games, Gage has six-plus targets and has eclipsed 13 fantasy factors in three of these contests. Whereas Calvin Ridley (particular person) is out, he stays on our watchlist.

Jamison Crowder, Jets (21)

Crowder hardly ever falls in need of six targets, and he attracts New Orleans in Week 14, who’s among the many top-five worst defenses in opposition to fantasy WRs.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Packers (21)

MVS has drawn 19 targets over the previous two weeks, and he will get Chicago in Week 14. If nothing else, he is a streaming possibility that week in one of the crucial favorable matchups for wideouts.

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Titans (16)

There’s an opportunity Julio Jones (hamstring) returns from IR in Week 14, however NWI can be the No. 2 WR in opposition to the Jags, at worst. A.J. Brown (chest) might be out at the least one other two video games after being positioned on IR, and the Titans get two WR-friendly matchups in opposition to Jacksonville and Pittsburgh earlier than he can return.

Curtis Samuel, Washington (15)

Samuel did not do a lot in his long-awaited return from a groin damage, nevertheless it’s good to see him again on the sphere, and he is usually a streamer in opposition to Dallas in what ought to be a pass-happy sport script for Washington. It is also price noting he could get some backfield run with J.D. McKissic (neck) doubtlessly sidelined.

Josh Reynolds, Lions (2)

Reynolds posted 70 yards and a landing in his first full sport again with Jared Goff, so maybe he’ll lastly be a good No. 1 WR in Detroit.

Jauan Jennings, 49ers (2)

Deebo Samuel (groin) is probably going going to overlook at the least two weeks, and Jennings is the subsequent WR on the depth chart. He caught a landing in opposition to Minnesota, and nearly had one other one, nevertheless it was dominated again.

WEEK 13 DFS: Greatest values | Greatest stacks | Lineup Builder

Week 14 Waiver Wire Watchlist: TE

Groups on a Week 14 bye: Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles

Evan Engram, Giants (31) @ LAC

Engram seemingly attracts a top-five TE-friendly matchup each week, and that continues right here in opposition to the Chargers. Los Angeles is the third-worst protection in opposition to fantasy QBs, so we won’t ignore Engram, though he is clearly not a protected possibility.

Gerald Everett, Seahawks (28) @ HOU

Everett has drawn extra targets than Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf since Russell Wilson returned to motion in Week 10, and Houston is a top-six workforce in fantasy factors allowed to tight ends. The numbers alone make Everett a good streamer.

Cole Kmet, Bears (25) @ GB

The Packers do not get abused by TEs like earlier within the season, however Kmet is eighth amongst tight ends in goal share (18.9 p.c), so he is a good streaming possibility in impartial matchups.

Austin Hooper (22); David Njoku (6) vs. BAL

These two groups performed simply final week, and Njoku and Harrison Bryant mixed for 80 yards and a landing in opposition to the fourth-worst protection in limiting fantasy TEs. Hooper was shut down, however we do not anticipate that to occur once more. It is robust to know which one in every of these guys to start out, however flip a coin, and hope for one of the best in the event you’re in a troublesome spot.

Foster Moreau, Raiders (13) @ KC

If Darren Waller (knee) is out for this matchup, Moreau is on the “must-start” bubble in opposition to the seventh-worst TE-stopping protection in Kansas Metropolis. A TE1 week ought to be so as.

Week 14 protection streamers and sleepers

Groups on a Week 14 bye: Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles

New Orleans Saints DST (47) @ NYJ

The Saints’ protection has been boom-or-bust this yr, however a matchup with Zach Wilson and the Jets is about as favorable as a D/ST can get.

Carolina Panthers DST (41) @ ATL

The times are gone of Atlanta having a high-powered offense, and it provides up essentially the most FPPG to D/STs. Three-plus sacks, a few turnovers, and even a defensive landing really feel very attainable on this spot with the Panthers enjoying at dwelling.

Denver Broncos DST (39) vs. DET

Denver’s protection is not fairly the elite unit some anticipated within the preseason, however a matchup with a sleepwalking Detroit offense means it ought to produce loads of factors this week.

Los Angeles Chargers DST (29) vs. NYG

Whether or not Daniel Jones or Mike Glennon begins for the Giants, the Chargers have loads of expertise on protection to overwhelm a nasty offensive line and benefit from an terrible New York offense.

Tennessee Titans DST (28) vs. JAX

The Titans’ protection has largely been hindered by its struggling offense, however Tennessee ought to get again within the win column right here. Even when Trevor Lawrence has a good day, he is normally due for a turnover or two.

Seattle Seahawks DST (12) @ HOU

Tyrod Taylor, David Johnson, Rex Burkhead, and Nico Collins are key contributors on this Houston offense, so until Houston is squaring off with a really horrible protection, we at all times contemplate a workforce that matches up with them.
