Waiver Wire Watch: Week 15
To bye weeks, we now say, "Bye Felicia." Thankfully, bye weeks are now a thing of the past as many leagues shift into the postseason thanks to the expanded 18-week schedule. Another tweak is that Saturday games are back in the mix, with the Raiders traveling to face the Browns, and the Patriots battling Jonathan Taylor and the Colts on Saturday this week. Be sure to keep that in mind when making waiver wire moves, as well as setting lineups. Keeping the right players in flex spots can allow you more maneuvers with the stretched-out schedule. Anyway, good luck to those of you still fighting for a fantasy championship.
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.
