My waiver additions are based off of 10-man leagues. I use the average ESPN percentages and stats to supply the information I use within my waiver additions. Some of the players listed may be taken in your league, but I will go in depth to add deep waiver additions as well. I broke it down by position, listing it by the most value at the top leading to the least value at the bottom. I will try not to list players from week to week but there are no promises. As we go week to week, the waivers will become more and more barren. Make sure you make your waivers count, as they are what help you build a winning team. Players from last week that would still be solid waiver pickups if they are available: Lamar Jackson, Jameis Winston, Josh Adams, Gus Edwards, Tre’ Quan Smith, and DJ Moore.
Dak Prescott, QB- Dallas Cowboys- 43.5 % Owned
Upcoming Schedule: NO, PIT, IND
Prescott has been on fire, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop. After having a dull beginning of the season, he has been killing it in recent weeks. Next up is a Saint’s defense that has been better as of late, but is still beatable. I see Prescott as a low end QB1 this week and for the rest of the season.
Baker Mayfield, QB- Cleveland Browns- 42.9 % Owned
Upcoming Schedule: HOU, CAR, DEN
Baker has been up and down this year, but he wasn’t this past weekend. Completely torching the Bengals D, he looked like the kind of player we expected him to be. Bakers next few matchups are not sublime, but if you are in a tight spot you could do a lot worse than throwing Baker into your lineup.
LeGarrette Blount, RB- Detroit Lions- 18.5 % Owned
Upcoming Schedule: LAR, ARI, BUF
Blount was back to his old form on Thanksgiving Day, and made those who played him look like a genius. His stock depends solely on Kerryon Johnson’s status. If Johnson is out, I like Blount as a flex play this week against a good Rams defensive line. He should still get the carries, and should put up a decent number.
Frank Gore, RB- Miami Dolphins- 33.1 % Owned
Upcoming Schedule: BUF, NE, MIN
Frank the Tank. I wrote about him before during his bye week and here he is again. He faces beatable defenses, and his share of carries should continue to be in the double digits. He will not be a game changer, but he has the ability to fill in as a low end rb2/ flex if needed.
John Ross, WR- Cincinnati Bengals- 18.5% Owned
Upcoming Schedule: DEN, LAC, OAK
Ross is similar to Blount, in that his value depends on whether AJ Green comes back this week or not. If he doesn’t, then Ross again has value as a red zone target for the Bengals. He would be a flex with upside in this week’s matchup.
David Moore, WR- Seattle Seahawks- 6.8% Owned
Upcoming Schedule: SF, MIN, SF
Moore had two bad weeks, but now he has been solid again. I would be willing to roll the dice on him this upcoming week against a 49ers D that was just burned by the Tampa Bay receiving core. He is a low end flex with big upside if he can deliver a long touchdown.
At a position that has such a large fluctuation of points scored, any type of solid production is always acknowledged.
Chris Herndon, TE- New York Jets- 9.9 % Owned
Upcoming Schedule: TEN, BUF, HOU
Herndon has been low key one of the most consistent tight ends in fantasy this year. His schedule doesn’t scare me and his QB situation couldn’t get worse. I would be fine putting Herndon in my tight end slot and receiving a solid 8-10 points, especially in full PPR.
