Waiver Wire Watch Week 14

As a refresher, The Drop List consists of players who are rostered in at least 50% of Yahoo leagues and are no longer must-have assets, recommended additions are available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues, the Watch List contains in-depth notes on fringe waiver adds, and Deep Cuts includes player notes on those rostered in 5% or fewer of Yahoo and FFPC leagues.

Bye Weeks: Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, Washington Commanders

The Drop List

Russell Wilson’s last five weekly finishes: QB22, QB21, QB20, QB29, and QB26. All prioritized quarterbacks below should be started over him in Week 14.

Damien Harris (thigh, week-to-week) was on crutches in the locker room following Thursday’s loss, suggesting he won’t be around at any point for the fantasy postseason. Any return during the most important stretch of the year is also a start/sit headache worth avoiding.

Kyren Williams logged 18 snaps to Akers' 46 against the Seahawks as Sean McVay yet again shuffled this backfield with no rhyme or reason. You're on your own starting any of them.

Brandin Cooks had been out-targeted 26-18 by Nico Collins in their last three games together prior to the veteran's supposed calf injury. It would not be shocking to see Cooks shut down for the remainder of the year.

Curtis Samuel popped for his highest target share (7, 17%) in any game with Taylor Heinicke against the Giants but still finished third on the totem pole to Terry McLaurin's (12, 29.2%) and Jahan Dotson's (9, 21.9%) volume. Heinicke’s 41 pass attempts over 70 minutes of action can be ignored since he had averaged 28.5 attempts per game prior to Sunday's tie.

Cooper Kupp has not officially been ruled out for the year just yet following "tightrope surgery" on his ankle, but Matthew Stafford’s career-threatening neck injury will inevitably keep Kupp glued to the sidelines for the last-place Rams through the 2022 season.

Tyler Higbee has averaged 2.7/24.5/0 receiving across his last seven games.
