#283 The Top 5 Waiver Adds For Week 14

Posted on

In today’s Fantasy Life Newsletter, we recap MNF, share the top waiver adds of the week, and enjoy Linda’s kicker tiers. It's 12/7. Take it away, Peter Overzet…

I don’t always enjoy 14-10 games, but when I do there is 35mph wind gusts, divisional bad blood, a QB throwing three times throughout an entire game, and a nailbiter finish.

Fantasy points were mostly hard to come by due to the conditions, but that was a legitimately entertaining game.

Damien Harris (10-111-1) got loose for a big TD run and Rhamondre Stevenson (24-78) hammered away at the defense. 

Gabriel Davis (2-30-1) scored the lone TD for the Bills, who drop to 7-5 on the year. The Patriots, who apparently only had to endure one bad year sans Tom Brady, are 9-4 now and look poised to make a legit playoff run. Of course.

 

🛒 THE TOP WAIVER WIRE ADDS

 

Rotoviz’s Sam Wallace lists his top waiver wire targets for Week 13 as well as the percentage that they are currently rostered in ESPN leagues. Take it away, Sam…

  1. Dontrell Hilliard (RB - 36.1%) - The loss of Derrick Henry cannot be emphasized enough, but the tandem of Hilliard and Foreman both topped 100 rushing yards in a Week 11 loss to the Patriots. Hilliard offers more through the air, so he’s my preferred option moving forward.
  1. Tevin Coleman (RB - 41.3%) - In the absence of Michael Carter, Coleman continues to be the primary option for the New York Jets. He has at least 10 carries, 55 rushing yards, and three targets in back-to-back games and should remain a viable fantasy option until Carter returns.
  1. Russell Gage (WR - 24.9%) - Gage appears to have settled into his role as the WR1 for the Falcons in recent weeks. His 12 targets in Week 13 were a season-high, and he now has 27 targets in his last three games.
  1. Amon-Ra St. Brown (WR - 6.6%) - Rookie wideout St. Brown erupted for the best game of his young career as the Lions picked up their first win of the season. His line of 10-86-1 (on 12 targets) paced the team. He should see significant involvement as he continues to develop.
  1. K.J. Osborn (WR - 4.2%) - After the departure of Adam Thielen in Week 13, Osborn chipped in with four receptions, 47 yards, and a score on seven targets. It was Osborn’s best game since Week 6. If Thielen is limited or misses time with his ankle injury, Osborn has shown enough to be worth a spot on your team.

👟 LINDA'S KICKER TIERS


Linda aka Lindellions shares her kicker tiers for Week 14 to help you on the waiver wire. Take it away, Linda…

The Detroit Lions continue to lead the league in points allowed to the kicker position and FGs allowed to their opponent. Brandon McManus and the Broncos get them this week. We saw early in the season how McManus played against the likes of the Giants (9 points), Jaguars (13) and Jets (16)…Greg Joseph and Chris Boswell are pitted against each other for Thursday Night Football. The Vikings are an early three point favorite, but both teams are allowing top five field goal attempts per game to opposing teams this year and both teams are also attempting 2+ field goals per game this season. 

 

We’ll be back tomorrow with early Week 14 ranks for QB and Flex.
