Week 14 Waiver Wire Targets

December 6, 2017


Running Backs



Jamaal Williams (65% owned on NFL):

Jamaal Williams is coming off his second 100 yard game with a touchdown in a row. Although Aaron Jones returned to the field this week, he wasn’t used until overtime when he busted off a 20 yard game-winning rushing touchdown. Though Aaron Jones did well on his single opportunity Williams should still be the featured guy going forward. Aaron Jones is worth an add in deeper leagues too.



Kenyan Drake (59% owned on NFL):

Other than a disappointing Week 11, Drake has been productive since the Dolphins traded Ajayi. In Week 13 Drake accumulated 120 yards and a touchdown on the ground and 3 catches for 21 yards through the air. This stat line may be near his high-water mark for the season, but Drake has shown he can be relied on for RB2 production.



Mike Davis (.5% owned on NFL):

In Mike Davis’ first game back after missing a week with a hamstring injury he got 20 touches while no other Seahawks Running Back got more than 2. He racked up 101 combined yards on those touches, but didn't get into the endzone. I wouldn't start Davis with confidence this week, but if he can put up another respectable stat line this week he could help RB depleted teams down the stretch. Definitely worth and add in Dynasty.



Peyton Barber (.4% owned on NFL):

With Doug Martin sidelined in Week 13 Peyton Barber got a lions share of the workload piling up 102 rushing yards and another 41 yards through the air on 4 catches. Doug Martin will likely be back this week, but with Barber’s stellar performance in Week 13 he should remain involved in the offense.



James Conner (1% owned on NFL):

Injury handcuff to Le’Veon Bell. If Bell gets injured Conner has RB1 upside.


Returning from Injury(?): David Johnson


Wide Receivers



Martavis Bryant (64.6% owned on NFL):

Bryant only managed to put together 40 yards on his 4 receptions in Week 13, but with JuJu Smith-Schuster suspended for Week 14 Bryant should get a lot more targets and I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a high-end WR2 this week.



Josh Gordon (26.5% owned on NFL):

In Josh Gordon’s first game back in almost 3 years he put up 85 yards against talented Chargers corners. Gordon should only continue to improve as he plays more games and him and Kizer get on the same page. Gordon is a must-add for his upside, even if you are stacked at Wide Receiver, add him so your opponents don’t.



Nelson Agholor (42.9% owned on NFL):

After a impressive stretch of games between Week 5 and 7, Agholor dropped off for a few weeks. He remerged this week in the Eagles Sunday night showdown against Seattle. Agholor had 141 receiving yards and a touchdown in the Eagle’s loss. After three disappointing weeks prior to this massive game, I still have a few doubts about his consistency coming into this week, but he is a high upside play if you need help and could be a reliable contributor in the final weeks of the season.



Josh Doctson (7.9% owned on NFL):

Josh Doctson continues to not get a ton of volume, but has had 10 PPR points in each of the last 3 weeks. He also seems to make an incredible highlight play in every game. We’ll see if Washington starts working him more into the offense, as of now Doctson is still a bench stash, or an emergency Flex, but he has the upside to be dominant.
