Week 15 Waiver Wire
Week 14 is done – the Fantasy playoffs are in full swing and it is time to finalize your roster for the final two weeks in the Fantasy season.
While depth for you roster may not be the main goal at this point in time, there are a couple of intriguing options on the Waiver Wire that could help you on your way to the Championship. Take a gander at Dave B’s Week 15 Waiver Wire and Good Luck the rest of the way!
Rex Grossman – Washington Redskins – If you were reliant upon Jay Cutler, Matt Schaub or Matt Cassel to guide you to the Fantasy Championship, Rex Grossman could be an option for you. Grossman hasn’t been lights out but he hasn’t been terrible either – 2 touchdown passes in three of his last four games. In Week 15 he gets a crack to the Giants defense that gave up four touchdowns to Tony Romo in Week 14.
Jake Locker – Tennessee Titans – Jake Locker was impressive in relief of Matt Hasselbeck who may or may not sit out Week 15 Locker went 13-for-29 for 282 yards, and a TD and added 6 rushes for 36 yards and a TD against New Orleans and could build on that assuming that he gets the start.
TJ Yates – Houston Texans – Yates threw for 300 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on Sunday and is really coming on for the Texans. He looks comfortable and effective and has a juicy matchup against Carolina in Week 15.
Others to Monitor: Joe Webb, John Skelton
Felix Jones – Dallas Cowboys – DeMarco Murray broke his ankle on Sunday night. Felix Jones is now the only healthy Cowboys’ running back. Although a backup will be signed, Jones should be in for monster workloads down the stretch as Dallas looks to secure a playoff berth.
Ryan Grant – Green Bay Packers – Starting in place of an injured James Starks, Ryan Grant rushed 10 times for 85 yards and two touchdowns and added one reception for 13 yards in Week 14. With Starks and now Saine banged up, Grant becomes the man in a dream matchup against Kansas City next week.
Marion Barber – Chicago Bears – Barber is probably gone in your league but if not he is a worthwhile add. He had 27 touches for 108 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 – to bad about the fumble in overtime! He has a tough Seattle defense at home in Week 15 but may be worth a look.
Others to Monitor: Chris Ivory, Montario Hardesty, Kahlil Bell, Chauncey Washington, Keiland Williams
Demaryius Thomas – Denver Broncos – Thomas had an astounding 13 targets on Sunday, grabbing 7 for 78 yards and a touchdown. He is clearly Tim Tebow’s favourite target and will be second to only Felix Jones as the most popular Waiver Wire target.
Titus Young – Detroit Lions – Titus Young caught four passes for 87 yards with a touchdown in the Lions’ Week 14 win over the Vikings. He had seven targets as Calvin Johnson continues to get a ridiculous amount of attention. He is an interesting yet desperate Fantasy prospect in Oakland next week.
Donte Stallworth – Washington Redskins – Donte’ Stallworth caught four passes for 96 yards in the Redskins’ Week 14 loss to the Patriots. He is still the third option in the offense behind Santana Moss and Jabar Gaffney so he is a huge Fantasy risk at this point of the season. [ad-8469823]
Donald Driver – Green Bay Packers – Greg Jennings is gone for the season meaning that there are lots of receptions to replace. Driver stepped up in Week 14 with four catches for 75 yards – he has the most chemistry with Aaron Rodgers other than Jordy Nelson – he is an interesting potential pickup.
Others to Monitor: Kevin Walter
Jake Ballard – NY Giants – Ballard continues to produce and may be the best of the limited pool of Tight End talent left on the Wire. Ballard had four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 and now has at least three catches and 47 yards in his last three games.
Dallas Clark – Indianapolis Colts – Clark was dropped in most leagues but made his return to the lineup on Sunday. Despite catching only one ball for 13 yards, he was targeted 6 times against Baltimore. Things should be a little easier against Tennessee in Week 15.
Tennessee Titans – Tennessee is a decent overall squad in every aspect of their defense. In Week 15 they have the honour of playing the Indianapolis Colts. They are a great play in Week 15 if you are not confident about your present DST.
Arizona Cardinals – Arizona has actually been fairly solid lately – 10 sacks in their last 2 games. They have the ability to force the occasional turnover as well. In Week 15, the Cards play a low scoring Cleveland team that could be without Colt McCoy. Even with McCoy, the Cards matchup with the Browns is more than favourable.
