Fantasy Football waiver wire The best options to search for reinforcements in the virtual grid
Si are reading this, Either you are an absolute fan of Fantasy, or you have a good chance of winning your league, that the vast majority on the virtual grid start with the Playoffs. If so, my biggest congratulations on achieving the first goal, but the jackpot is still a few weeks away.
So it’s time, like every week, to dive into the waiver. After two and a half months of rest weeks, except for a mini-break on Thanksgiving, now all 32 teams are free, so you will have your entire squad at your disposal. This does not mean that you should not look for reinforcements, but rather the opposite, to seek to scratch some points here and there for injuries, Covid, favorable duels that may end up being the difference.a.
Like every week, we look for the options that are available in 50% of leagues on NFL.com, although contrary to other editions, Now there’s no tight end or quarterbacks to look for since all will be available and the options for week 14 do not bring attractive duels.
Cam Akers (RB LAR, 34.6%). The Rams’ backfield was a mess all year, with Malcolm Brown taking center stage for a few weeks, then Darrell Henderson. Cam Akers was technically the starter until the start of the year, but he lost a couple of games through injury and went to the bottom of the queue … but he’s back as clear # 1. He has 4 games scoring on the ground and the Rams, since the Gurley Era, run a lot in the red zone. From there, Akers had 52 plays against Henderson’s 18 and Brown’s 13. Akers had 21 carries for 6 of the other two combined, and caught a pass. We have a RB2 on waivers.
Damien Harris (RB NE, 47.1%). The Pats’ backfield is crowded, but it was the one that had the most carries and yards, as well as one reception to finish with 95 total yards. It is much better choice than Sony Michel
Ty Johnson (RB NYJ, 0%). The eternal Frank Gore was shocked and it was Johnson, not Josh Adams, the beneficiary with 104 yards and 1 TD in more than double the plays (39 vs 19) and carries (22 and 8). He also caught 2 passes. Suddenly we have a flex.
J.D. McKissic (RB WSH, 34.8%). Antonio Gibson’s injury leaves the backfield open in the capital. Peyton Barber scored on the ground against the Steelers, but McKissic presents a more consistent option, especially in PPR leagues, because he participates a lot in the passing game of Captains Escape Valve Captain Alex Smith. Since the veteran started in Week 10, McKissic has 22 receptions (10 against Pittsburgh), # 18 among all players and the only RB above 20. Flex or WR2 in PPR leagues.
Patrick Team (WR DEN, 7.0%). We’re not just talking about Denver’s best WR, but # 35 so far this season. Throwing away the game against New Orleans with QB Hinton properly, he has double-digit points in four straight games. They have a favorable duel against Carolina in week 14. Flex or WR2.
T.Y. Hilton (WR IND, 38.3%). TY seems to have been reborn. He loves playing the Texans, on his way to 25 points, his second 80-yard touchdown game in consecutive weeks. They have the Raiders on their doorstep, who almost lost to the Jets … and in two weeks Houston repeats. WR2 potential.
The Texans can’t run even though their life depends on it, their defense gets them into shootouts, so with the Fuller casualties for cunts, Stills for being cut and Cooks for one more commotion, Keke Coutee (5.1%) and Chad Hansen (0%) they are attractive options with both having more than 100 yards against the Colts. Yes, Coutee has more of a history with Watson.
One of my favorite strategies, looking to attack the worst teams in the league. Every year passes: if you choose a defense that that week goes against the worst teams in the league, you have a Top 5 defense at the end of the year.
The Jets are are exploitable every week. Also they Cowboys DiNucci, Gilbert and even Dalton, as well as the Jaguars as long as they don’t have Minshew. Now the Bengals join after the Joe Burrow injury. The 49ers They can also be, although they recover injured players, and the Broncos y Ravens if they continue with so many on the Covid list. Many better options than trying to make your defense survive Mahomes …
Seattle (62.6%). The Jets lottery pick this week. They’re getting better since they got their receivers back, but Seattle must be furious about losing to the Giants.
Dallas (10.7%). Their defense is really bad, but they go against Cincinnati, where Brandon Allen was injured and they still have to go with Ryan Finley as QB.
San Francisco (48%). The WFT is improving, but they remain a slow offense and the Niners recovered several key injuries.
