Fantasy Football Week 15: Waivers

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

WR:

Michael Crabtree (54%): He’s slowly working his way back into the offense and his targets doubled (8) in his 2nd week back on the field. I expect his targets to stay around that level and his production to increase as he gets back in game shape. He’s a borderline flex start right now with WR2 upside the rest of the way.

Cordarrelle Patterson (26%): This kid can fly and the Vikings are making a concerted effort to get him the ball lately. Over the last four games Patterson is averaging just under 8 targets per and has scored a TD in the last two. If your league counts kick/punt returns that is another bonus as he as already taken two kicks to the house this year. Patterson is an explosive athlete and if the Vikings keep finding ways to get him involved, he has much upside as almost any receiver in the league.

Rod Streater (20%): I was ready to give up on Streater after he was a non-factor on Thanksgiving and was partly responsible for me losing a playoff match-up by 4 points, but he bounced back with a big week 14 (7-130-1) against a solid Jets defense and has been very productive in three of McGloin’s four starts. Even with the one dud, he’s still averaging 7 catches and 91 yards since McGloin took over.

Max FAAB: $15

Justin Hunter (2%): Like most rookies, he’s been inconsistent but has over 100 yards and a TD in two of the Titans last three games. Hunter is the most explosive receiver on the Titans roster and I expect them to target Hunter more often over the last three weeks.

TE:

Dennis Pitta (13%): Joe Flacco seemed happy to have Pitta back as he targeted him 11 times in Pitta first game of the season. Pitta didn’t look rusty at all and grabbed 6 passes for 48 yards and a TD. He’s a top-5 TE the rest of the way.

Max FAAB: $20

Heath Miller (51%): Boring, but solid. Miller is averaging 5.5 catches per game over the last four. You can’t afford a zero from any position in the playoffs and there is some value in knowing Miller is going to get you at least 6-8 points most weeks.

Max FAAB: $10

Garrett Graham (37%):If consistency isn’t your thing, Graham is your guy. In the last four weeks he’s had two huge games (209 total yards, 2 TDs) and two duds (68 total yards). It’s risky, but he has more upside than most TE options.

Max FAAB: $7

Ladarius Green (25%): Speaking of upside, Green is a freak (6’6, 240, 4.5 speed) and was on a roll before last week’s dud (0 fantasy points). He has touchdowns in 2 of the Chargers last three games and is a high risk / high upside play.
