Waiver Wire Watch: Week 14
This is the final week with byes of the year, and thank the football gods as the waiver-wire is really starting to get thin. Tight end remains a disaster, but even wide receiver feels a little barren as a combination of more concentrated passing attacks and injuries are limiting the viable pool of options. Don’t forget that in addition to Thursday Night Football, there are Saturday games next week as well, so you’ll need to be sharp when it comes to adding help from the wire, and keeping track of your lineups with games spread out across four different days.
Recommendations are based on a PPR-scoring, four-point passing touchdown, 12-team league, with roster percentages coming from Yahoo. Typically, we will not be writing up players who are rostered in over 50% of leagues. We may include them on the lists, though, as a friendly reminder to scan your waiver wire for those names. Free-agent budget recommendations are based on a standard $100 budget for the season. I try to mention when a player is a better streaming play (short-term/one-week starter) versus a long-term addition. Lastly, the great John Paulsen will edit this article every week and adjust rankings (and prices, starting next week), if necessary. Essentially, you’re getting two minds collaborating on this piece instead of one, so lucky you.
