Redraft Waiver Wire Targets: Championship Week

If you’re reading this, you’ve won, again! You’re on your way to the ship! For a lot of you, this is the end of it all. One last push for the belt, trophy, CASH or bragging rights. This could also solidify people in consolation rounds trying to win 3rd place (my work league 3rd and 4th get payouts). Either way, this is our second to last week before the fantasy season is over. Make it count!

Due to our scheduled releases, this will be completed before the Monday night games as well as before I’ve had time to digest every game in depth. So with that being said,  stay tuned to my tweets for more gems later on in the week and Follow THE Fantasy Vigilante HERE!

Quarterbacks:

I’m sticking with my thought process of not leaving your chances of winning in the hands of what’s left out there. So again, here’s the only one I trust:

Josh Allen

ESPN OWN %: 31.4

YAHOO OWN%: 23

His running backs are made of glass and he looks good running the ball. He’s becoming a threat to both run for high yardage and throw for enough to be beneficial. He and Robert Foster having been finding a great connection and it’s been great for his long ball. The Pats aren’t doing much to stop anybody these days and mobile QBs like Mitch Trubisky gave them heck in week 7. Even still, QBs are coming in and throwing for 250+ and a couple of TDs which is at least a good floor ceiling for him and production.

Wide Receivers:

Dante Pettis

ESPN OWN %: 37.2

YAHOO OWN%: 52

He’s going to get volume, we know this. The bears have been allowing the yardage to receivers but not the TDs. He’s a flex at best in this matchup with the Bears more than likely putting lots of pressure on Mullens.

Robert Foster

ESPN OWN %: 3.3

YAHOO OWN%: 14

It didn’t make me feel good last week but I advised you all to go after him anyway. Well it seemed to pan out for those who took the plunge and I don’t think it’s going to stop this week against the Pats. I can’t recommend Josh Allen and not talk up his favorite weapon.

DaeSean Hamilton

ESPN OWN %: 24.1

YAHOO OWN%: 22

He faces a easy secondary and he’s been being loved by Keenum who typically favors the slot guy. Think of Hamilton as Theilen and Sutton as Diggs. Another helpful play here for those who need it although, the floor is lower than one would like because of the amount that Keenum actually throws (197.7 yards and 1 TD per game avg).

Robby Anderson

ESPN OWN %: 18

YAHOO OWN%: 27

He will probably be one of the hotter pickups this week as he and Darnold are finding the same kind of Chemistry that Allen and Foster have found. With him being a deep threat, that always means he has a high probability of getting big gains and TDs relatively quickly, so the receptions may not be there but production will be. Treat him as a WR3 with WR1 as his upside, typically what you’d expect from a boom bust player.

Running Backs:

Latavius Murray

ESPN OWN %: 40.5

YAHOO OWN%: 49

Looking back at his history, Murray generally has a decent game if he manages to eke out 15 carries. As long as he can get that against Detroit, he’ll be a fine RB2 play. Less available but may still be out there.

Elijah McGuire

ESPN OWN %: 33.4

YAHOO OWN%: 33

The packers are better at defending the pass than they are with the run which makes this a good spot for anyone able to get a hold of him. Averaging about 15 ppr points since Crowell went down, Elijah is looking like a fine play for week 16.

Kenneth Dixon

ESPN OWN %: 11.4

YAHOO OWN%: 27

Still widely available, Kenneth is worth the pickup purely based on the fact that the Ravens are running SO much. Add the fact that the Chargers just allowed Damien Williams and Darrel Williams to have very good games bodes well for Dixon, Gus and Lamar.

Tight End:

C.J. Uzomah

ESPN OWN %: 30.9

YAHOO OWN%: 29

With Boyd now out for the duration, he should see extra looks. The other receiving options outside of Mixon, Ross and Bernard are gross so I’ll stick to what I said last week:

He’s averaging 3 receptions a game which is a good baseline for your tight end in this wasteland. If he’s available, he should be on your roster because he’s alive and gets looks every game. Not really much going out there for the tight end position.”

Dynasty Trash Pile: Week 16 Edition

I’ll be digging through the trash for your next waiver stash. Just like last week on the Trash Pile, we are recommending 3 stash players for next season each week from now until week 17. These players are owned in 15% or less in all FFPC leagues. The list may range from veterans, fringe players all the way to first round busts. If you’re in a rebuild and you are looking towards the future, maybe there is a guy that sparks some interest between now and week 17. If not, thanks for reading anyway. Here goes:

1. Breshad Perriman, WR, Cleveland Browns

(0.86% owned in FFPC leagues)

Perriman is a former first round pick (26th overall) from the 2015 NFL Draft out of UCF. When the Ravens selected Breshad, they thought they were getting the next Dez Bryant. Before his rookie season even started, he was placed on season ending IR with a knee injury. This would be the start of Perriman’s rocky career. Injuries to his knees and hamstrings to go along with multiple drops when he gets on the field, have cemented his status as a “draft bust”. Before the season had even started, Pro Football Focus had Perriman graded as their lowest ranked wide receiver. After the conclusion of the preseason and with more drops on his resume, the Ravens finally cut Perriman loose. After a short stop in Washington with the Redskins and being cut yet again, he was brought in for a try out and signed by the Cleveland Browns. After 9 weeks of being on the roster, it appears that Perriman may have found a home. Baker Mayfield looked Perriman’s way on the first play of week 14 against Carolina and hit him with a 66 yard strike. The play would have gone for a touchdown, but Perriman ended up losing his balance. This past week against the Denver Broncos, Perriman would finally hit paydirt. On a 3rd and 9 in the first quarter, Mayfield hit Perriman down the right sideline on a contested catch for a 31 yard score. Perriman has speed, but the main issue with his game is dropped passes. So far, he has been able to hold onto the ball. If he corrects this issue, his speed would make him an interesting option for Baker Mayfield moving forward. A lot of dynasty owners will be weary of grabbing Perriman, so even after this past weeks performance, he may still only cost you a few dollars of FAAB. At 25 years old, he’s still pretty young with plenty of game left.

2. Mike Boone, RB, Minnesota Vikings

(0.82% owned in FFPC leagues)

Mike Boone is an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati. The SPARQ freak would have a great preseason, which made his ownership spike up to almost 3%. In said preseason, Boone carried the ball 49 times for 185 yards in all 4 games and shredded Jacksonville week 2 for 91 yards. Due to having Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray in front of him, Boone’s regular season stats are very limited. He wasn’t even made active until week 3 against Buffalo and received only 2 carries in this contest for 11 yards. He also missed a block on a 3rd down in that game and it led to a costly sack. Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals was his best game to date, however. Boone had one carry in this game and made it count. In the 3rd quarter, Boone took the hand off, hit the gap and exploded up the middle for 20 yards. So far in the 7 games he has been active for, he has rushed the ball 11 times for 47 yards (4.3 YPC) and caught 2 passes for 1 yard. Also, since his first time being active in week 3, Boone’s ownership has dropped by 2%. This means he may not be on anyone’s radar at all in dynasty. As of today, Mike Boone is free for the taking. If Dalvin Cook were to get injured again like he did last season, Mike Boone could be a decent asset. Hey, the price is right if you have the roster room!

3. Tim Patrick, WR, Denver Broncos

(4.45% owned in FFPC leagues)

The Trash Pile this week ends with Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick. An undrafted free agent from the 2017 Draft class, Patrick was signed initially with the Baltimore Ravens, then cut and added to the San Francisco 49ers practice squad before finally landing with the Denver Broncos that same season. Since that time, Patrick has learned the ins-and-outs of the Broncos offense. It took a while before Patrick actually made any sort of impact. Finally, in week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick would catch his first career NFL touchdown. On this play, there was 9 seconds left before the half, Case Keenum found Patrick, who snuck by his defender in the back corner of the end zone for a 24 yard score. He would not make another an impact again until week 14 after Emmanuel Sanders tore his ACL and he was promoted up the depth chart. That is when Patrick would make an intriguing PPR add. Since that week 14 contest San Francisco, Patrick has led all Broncos receivers in targets (18) and yardage (150). He has also outplayed rookie sensation Courtland Sutton. Beyond this season, who knows what kind of value Patrick will hold. The Broncos could revamp their wide receiver stable in free agency and the draft, or they could roll with Tim Patrick. If you need PPR help in your championship game this week, Patrick does have a juicy matchup against Oakland, but you may need to blow the rest of your FAAB budget.

Redraft Waiver Wire Targets: Week 15

If you’re reading this, you’ve won. You progressed to the semi-finals. You need a pickup or two to solidify your options for game-day (don’t freak out, we help with start-sit questions too). You may even be in a pinch like I was, afraid to start your non-stud guys and need a capable stand-in. That’s what we’re here for, breath and read on.

Due to our scheduled releases, this will be completed before the Monday night games as well as before I’ve had time to digest every game in depth. So with that being said,  stay tuned to my tweets for more gems later on in the week and Follow THE Fantasy Vigilante HERE!

Quarterbacks:

There’s only one QB I’d possibly trust, as a last ditch option, this deep in the playoffs:

Josh Allen

ESPN OWN %: 16.9

YAHOO OWN%: 14

He’s giving us his best throwback Cam Newton impersonation and putting together pretty good fantasy games. In the last three weeks he has at least thrown and ran for a touchdown or both. Along with the fact that he’s getting you 99+ yards on the ground and 150 through the air, it makes him at worst, a safe play. Detroit isn’t a team that I’d be shaking in my boots playing my QB against either, so fire him up.

Wide Receivers:

Dante Pettis

ESPN OWN %: 19.6

YAHOO OWN%: 46

Very solid 3 weeks after the bye, Pettis has had 7 targets every single game. He’s turned those into 5,4 and 3 receptions for at least 50 yards and a TD. Couple that with a little recency bias of him facing the Seahawks this week who he gave a nice 5/123/2 and you have a wonderful wr3 with wr2 upside.With Goodwin and Brieda being healthy and “Kittles N Bits” taking the attention of the defense, it’ll only help.

Robert Foster

ESPN OWN %: Available

YAHOO OWN%: Available

This doesn’t make me feel good, but I can’t deny what he’s been which is playable. Outside of the game against MIA, he’s been great as a flex/wr3. Sneakily averaging 90+ yards on about 3 receptions per game, he is a most certainly “boom-bust” type. Not something you want to depend on during the playoffs, but sometimes that’s what it takes. Keep an eye on Zay Jones as well, the target share is there, with 8 per game over the last 4 weeks.

Curtis Samuel

ESPN OWN %: 32.5

YAHOO OWN%: 31

Didn’t even bother to take Curtis off from last week because I believe in him and the match-up he has AGAIN. New Orleans doesn’t have the strongest secondary and has allowed the #1 and #2 to routinely have good enough yardage games to not sink your ships. I have him in two places currently in the playoffs and who knows, he could be a sneaky championship piece. He’s getting opportunity to make use of his ability and capitalizing. Add to the fact that he’s had good games the last two weeks (15.6, 12 PPR) without touchdowns makes me feel safe. Add a touchdown to these games and we’re looking at a waiver wire week winner.

Running Backs:

Kenneth Dixon

ESPN OWN %: 2.6

YAHOO OWN%: 8

Everyone’s darling from a while ago, Dixon has started to round back into form and steal from Gus Edwards. With them running as much as they do and having TB on the docket next, Kenneth wouldn’t be a terrible flex in a pinch. They have allowed over 100 yards to the RB position over the last few weeks and I don’t imagine they’ll be able to slow down Dixon, Gus and Lamar enough.

Damien Williams

ESPN OWN %: 14

YAHOO OWN%: 17

If for some reason Ware can’t go or is limited, this would be the next man up. He’s seen enough to at least warrant a flex play and on a short week with not much out there RB wise, he is an option with some upside.

Tight End:

Vernon Davis

ESPN OWN %: 4.9

YAHOO OWN%: 5

Anytime Reed goes down, Davis is ready to step up. Davis is a solid replacement and a perfect security blanket for dump offs and shallow routes with a 4 string QB. Fire him up if you need him.

C.J. Uzomah

ESPN OWN %: 30.9

YAHOO OWN%: 29

He’s averaging 3 receptions a game which is a good baseline for your tight end in this wasteland. If he’s available, he should be on your roster because he’s alive and gets looks every game. Not really much going out there for the tight end position

Dynasty Trash Pile: Week 15 Edition


Is your league missing sweet silverware for your champion? Save 10% on ALL merchandise from Fantasy Champs with promo code “Top2”

I’ll be digging through the trash for your next waiver stash. Just like last week on the Trash Pile, we are recommending 3 stash players for next season each week from now until week 17. These players are owned in 15% or less in all FFPC leagues. The list may range from veterans, fringe players all the way to first round busts. If you’re in a rebuild and you are looking towards the future, maybe there is a guy that sparks some interest between now and week 17. If not, thanks for reading anyway. Here goes:

1. Robert Foster, WR, Buffalo Bills
(4.76% owned in FFPC leagues)

Robert Foster went undrafted in 2018. The former Alabama wide receiver signed as a free agent with the Buffalo Bills. At the draft combine, Foster ran the 5th best 40 time at 4.4. The main issue with Foster’s game is his hands. During training camp, Foster had problems catching passes and almost found his way on the roster bubble. Despite this issue, the Bills kept Foster on their 53 man roster and he has been active since week 1. Foster finally had his breakout game in week 10 against the New York Jets. In this game, Foster caught a 47 yard up route from Matt Barkley to set up a Shady McCoy touchdown. He would finish this game with 3 receptions for 105 yards. Foster would then have another stellar performance against Jacksonville week 12. In this matchup, Foster ended up scoring on a another bomb, this time from Josh Allen for 75 yards. He would finish that contest with 2 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown. This past week against the Jets, Foster was a PPR demon catching 7 passes for 104 yards. As you can see, the talent is there, but like most Trash Pile players, there is always a reason that they are barely owned. Robert Foster’s defect is a lack of consistency and also with dropped passes (as stated above). His speed, however, will be what keeps him on the Bills roster. Josh Allen has a cannon of an arm, this is no secret, and it’s very possible that Robert Foster will be his deep ball threat moving forward. After the release of wide receivers Andre Holmes and Kelvin Benjamin, there is certainly a large hole in the Bills receiving corps. In the coming weeks, you may see Fosters name more and more. If you are prepared to keep a player on your roster who has deep ball upside, Foster is your guy.

2. Jordan Akins, TE, Houston Texans
(13.27% owned in FFPC leagues)

We finish the Trash Pile with Jordan Akins. The Texans selected Akins in the
3rd round of the 2018 draft (98th overall) out of UCF. Akins is a monster. He is 6’3” and 249lbs and has exceptional hands. He is however, old for a rookie. Jordan is currently 26 years old due to having played minor league baseball for a few years before heading to college at UCF. Regardless of his age, Akins could still be worthwhile in dynasty formats. With his huge frame, he is an instant red zone option for Deshaun Watson. This year, Akins has not delivered for dynasty owners and has yet to have a real breakout game. This past week against the Indianapolis Colts, Akins showed off his skill set by catching a 24 yard contested catch on the right sideline by leaping and bringing down the ball in bounds. After having a pretty big first half in this game (2 catches for 40 yards), he would not catch another ball. His current stats won’t make you jump out of your seat (13 catches on 18 targets for 152 yards and no touchdowns). It’s just a matter of time with Akins, and with his ownership low, he could be easily had for your dynasty roster. If you’re looking towards the future and have a hole in your tight end spot, grab Akins up now.

3. J’Mon Moore, WR, Green Bay Packers
(12.2% owned in FFPC leagues)

J’Mon Moore is a big-bodied receiver (6’3” 205lbs) with great leaping ability out of Missouri. Moore was selected as the first of 3 wide receivers drafted by Green Bay in the 2018 Draft (4th round 133rd overall). Early on during camp, Moore was receiving first team reps which created a buzz among the dynasty community. Then after a few bad preseason games, he was passed over on the depth chart by other rookie receivers (Valdez-Scantling and St. Brown) and eventually an undrafted free agent (Kumerow). This was due to an issue J’Mon had developed during practices and then in preseason games with dropped passes. The lack of confidence Aaron Rodgers had in Moore and also a lack of concentration, made Moore’s stock plummet. He was made inactive a bunch of times and would only be activated for 9 of the teams 15 games. Originally most dynasty leaguers thought he would be the predecessor to Randall Cobb, but it hasn’t worked out the way most owners figured. His original ownership had dropped by 28% since the start of the year. In the 9 games he has been active for, he had only been targeted one time. Moore did end up catching this pass, however, for a 10 yard gain. In this past weeks game against the Falcons, Moore did get on the stat sheet by returning a kick for 26 yards, but he did not receive a target in the passing game. The knock on Moore is his limited route tree and more recently, his problem with drops. Moore is still somewhat of an unknown in the NFL and could definitely have value once given an actual chance in real-game action. If you’re rebuilding, he is someone to put on your watch list or even your roster, if you have the room. Any time you can add a pass catcher with Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback, you should at the very least be intrigued.

Redraft Waiver Wire Targets: Week 14


Is your league missing sweet silverware for your champion? Save 10% on ALL merchandise from Fantasy Champs with promo code “Top2”

Inhale deep, now exhale and give a Rick Flair-esque “wooo!” because you’ve made it. It’s playoff time and you’re ready to tinker and tweak those lineups to advance past round one!

Due to our scheduled releases, this will be completed before the Monday night games as well as before I’ve had time to digest every game in depth. So with that being said,  stay tuned to my tweets for more gems later on in the week and Follow THE Fantasy Vigilante HERE!

Quarterbacks:

Let’s be honest, if you made it this far, it wasn’t on the backs of some of the guys that are left. I won’t suggest QBs that are left at less than 50% own rate because they’re all bound to lose you the first round. Moving on.

Wide Receivers:

Tre’Quan Smith

ESPN OWN %: 43

YAHOO OWN%: 42

Frequently mentioned on this article, Smith continues to be a waiver wire darling ( I still have him in a few places). Tampa Bay is the team you want to green light all your players against and Smith is healthy. If you’re in need of a flex against a bad secondary, he’s one of the guys you should seek.

Adam Humphries

ESPN OWN %: 41.2

YAHOO OWN%: 50

Humphries has been having a quiet but great 4 weeks averaging 14.7 PPG. Even with the possible return of Desean Jackson looming, he won’t effect what Adam has going on. Godwin is another possible candidate here with the way he’s catching everything that comes his way, but may be stifled by Jackson’s return. Keep both in mind as wr3/flex plays this week.

Curtis Samuel

ESPN Own %: 12.5

YAHOO OWN%: 18

Didn’t even bother to take Curtis off from last week because I believe in him and the matchup he has. With Greg Olsen down, Funchess, Moore, CMC and Samuel with shoulder a heavier load going forward, not Ian Thomas. Which means more end around/motion plays that get him and Moore open where they can create in open space. Cleveland is that get right game for the Panthers and with no real #1 right now all three will have time on weaker defenders (even though CLE isn’t a pushover).

Running Backs:

Rashaad Penny

ESPN OWN %: 21.5

YAHOO OWN%: 30

With Mike Davis not running well and Carson injured, Penny could be in line for some heavier work. Minnesota isn’t shutting down the run game but they aren’t a walk in the park either. I look for this to be a matchup where he can manage to be a flex play at best with Mike Davis still getting most of the targets (Penny hasn’t been targeted in the last 4 weeks).

Ty Montgomery

ESPN OWN %: 13.1

YAHOO OWN%: 13

One of my favorite “scat-backs” from the offseason, Ty Mont is becoming a viable weapon for Lamar. He’s over 50 yards and at least 3+ receptions in the last two games. That should continue against KC seeing how Richard looked against them (126 yards from scrimmage). Depending on how Lamar slings it, I’d call Ty Mont a back end RB2. Gus Edwards should have a flex worthy game as well with the offense being more run oriented.

Jeff Wilson Jr.

ESPN OWN %: 0

YAHOO OWN%: 2

With Brieda missing this week (alert dropped while writing this) and Jeff having a great game last week, that makes him a great flex play against DEN. We have to expect Alfred Morris to be active but if Jeff sees any where close to what he got last week, he’ll be a fine play with RB2 upside in an offense that allows production.

Tight End:

Mark Andrews

ESPN OWN %: 1.6

YAHOO OWN%: 2

If you’re hurting at the position and can’t just let your TE spot sit empty, Andrews is your guy out of the few that are available. He’s the most productive TE on the team and KC isn’t exactly limiting any one position, especially the TE. In the last three games, they have allowed over 100 yards to the position.

Trust me, I’m right there with you in the waiver battlefields. I’ve tried every form of drafting strategy and they have little to no effect on my rosters because of, say it with me now, WAIVERS! As far as my redraft leagues go, 3 out of the 5 teams I have are going to the playoffs and most of the 21 teams I have lead the league in scoring and I hope this article has helped you accomplish the same.

Dynasty Trash Pile: Week 14 Edition


Want an easy, non-intimidating way to try DFS? Check out DRAFT with a free $3 entry.Use promo code “Top2”

I’ll be digging through the trash for your next waiver stash. This week on the Trash Pile, we are trying something different. I’m going to be recommending 3 stash players for next season each week from now until week 17 that are owned in 15% or less in all FFPC leagues. The list may range from veterans to first round busts, but should be interesting nonetheless. If you’re in a rebuild and you are looking towards the future, maybe there is a guy that sparks some interest between now and week 17. If not, thanks for reading anyway. Here goes:

1. Jonathan Williams, RB, Indianapolis Colts
(12.91% owned in FFPC leagues)

Jonathan Williams was projected as a high draft pick (possibly even the first round) after his junior year at Arkansas. An injury in his senior year before the season started killed his draft stock, and he was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the 5th round (156th overall) in 2016. Since being drafted, Williams has bounced around between a few practice squads and has also served a suspension of 4 games. However, Williams possesses many traits that any team would look for in a running back.

He is a great pass protector, has good vision, runs with power up the middle, has pass catching ability and is known for being slippery when defenders go in for the tackle. Currently sitting on the Colts practice squad, he has also had stints with the New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos that both resulted in his release. He seems to always be the “next man up”, but then is passed over for whatever reason. The Colts have activated Williams this season on 3 separate occasions, but he has only received 3 carries for 0 yards.

In the coming weeks, it is possible the Colts could push Williams into action a few more times to see what they have in him. If this happens, it could be an audition for a roster spot next year with the Colts, or another team. Williams is a gamble for sure, but there are 13% of FFPC owners who obviously believe in his talent.

2. Kevin White, WR, Chicago Bears
(14.7% owned in FFPC leagues)

I already know a majority of fantasy football owners hate Kevin White and I should too. I drafted the guy in my own Dynasty league and got burned. Injuries have derailed his career severely and that is a known fact. White still carries that high draft pick pedigree (selected 7th overall in 2015) and there will be a team that will take a chance on him next year because of this.

This season he has played sparingly. Most of his production came on a hail-mary pass in the game against New England where he hauled it in for 54 yards, but could not gain the extra yard to help the Bears secure a victory. It’s true that Kevin White has lost a step (his speed was his best asset), but he might have that chip on his shoulder mentality that could make him a serviceable roster option.

As of the writing of this article, his career stats are 24 catches for 263 yards and no touchdowns. I have no idea what the future holds for Mr. White, but I am certainly intrigued. If you are in the 85+% of leagues he’s available in, a $1 would probably get you Kevin White and that’s not a bad price coming from the Trash Man himself.

3. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, New Orleans Saints
(7.61% owned in FFPC leagues)

Teddy Bridgewater is a player I am definitely rooting for. Bridgewater is a former 1st round draft pick by the Minnesota Vikings (32nd overall) from the 2014 NFL Draft out of Louisville. After a breakout season in 2015 where he would end up making the Pro Bowl, Bridgewater tore his ACL and dislocated his knee joint in a gruesome injury in practice before the start of the 2016 preseason.

Since that time, he has been rehabbing and trying to make a comeback. In 2017, Bridgewater did the unthinkable and came back to play in week 15 against the Bengals. After a standing ovation, Bridgewater would end up tossing an interception in one of his only 2 pass attempts that season. After the conclusion of 2017, the Vikings would release Bridgewater. He was then signed by the New York Jets and after a decent preseason that saw him toss 316 yards, 2 td’s and 1 INT in 3 games, he was traded to the New Orleans Saints for a 6th round draft choice.

So far this year, Bridgewater has done nothing but take kneel downs for Drew Brees. However, the Saints could view him as the predecessor to Brees. In the Saints highly potent offense, this should excite any fantasy owner with a pulse. $1 would probably get Bridgewater on your roster. I’ve spent $1 of FAAB on worse players who would never sniff a Pro Bowl and I’m sure you have too.
