To all our readers who are still perusing Fantasy Football articles after Week 13, congrats!! The marathon regular season is over, and now it gets real. Some of you maybe even have a bye this week, but don’t ignore the wire, as planning ahead is a rare luxury. While it is a “thin” waiver wire, there’s no question your playoff roster could use some depth and streaming defenses. Enjoy!
Mike Davis, RB, SEA
I’m not sure if a Seattle RB will ever become trustworthy, but it’s clear that Davis has earned the lead back role after a valiant performance against the Eagles top ranked run defense. It may take one more “prove it” week of production, but I’m hopeful/excited to start Davis in Week 15 against the Rams run funnel defense.
Peyton Barber, RB, TB
So much for the Jacquizz show. Barber was given his first ever bell cow audition in Lambeau on Sunday, and did not disappoint. It makes no sense to rush Doug Martin back from a concussion in a lost season, and Barber could continue to produce as a cheap RB2 through Week 16.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, NYJ
Shockingly, and sadly, the Jets have a thriving passing game centered around a QB who is two years older than Eli. Kearse is McCown’s slot weapon, and has cleared 100 yards in back-to-back outings. He could be a WR3/flex option if you don’t like the matchups of your usual starters.
The Packers get the Cleveland Browns this week. This is all.
Baltimore Ravens DST
If you have a bye this week, make the Ravens DST your prime target. They get the Browns next week and the Colts in Week 16. Remember, when you have the Week 14 bye, you’re guaranteed to play weeks 15 and 16 (third place game), so feel free to look ahead to those matchups when making waiver claims today.
