2015 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire

The Waiver Wire is where you replace your slackers with starters and build your bench and trade material into an unstoppable arsenal of fantasy goodness. Most leagues have the waiver wire locked until after the games are complete or you're stuck in some sort of waiver priority, both of these limit when you can pick up players off the waiver wire. Nevertheless, typically we post our waiver wire picks on Monday morning every week.

Below you'll find our dripping wet weekly fantasy football waiver wire articles.

Ty Montgomery To Replace Nelson? Fantasy Impact

It doesn't matter if you're a Jordy Nelson owner or not, the fantasy impact of his injury must be reviewed by everyone. If you've prematurely just taken the “Next Best” guy on the teams WR core depth chart then you need to read this. In short, it's really looking like Ty Montgomery will replace Nelson, not Jeff Janis. I’m certain we all agree on the fact that Janis has the edge with his Olympic weight lifting regiment and better catching radius. But we’ve overlooked one important component on Jeff Janis, he's still very raw!   And as we know so well once the press coverage is applied being raw doesn't cut the mustard.

Ty Montgomery Is The Right “Fit”

Whether you’ve researched anything about Ty Montgomery or not, he’s going to be the guy in Green Bay this year, mark my words! I stress the term “Fit” because just like in your professional work career in your hometown, often times it’s not all bout what your resume says: Yale, Princeton, MIT, blah, blah, blah, this and that. More and more big Corporations now-a-days are seeing past the surface structure of where you went to school and seeking how you fit into their scheme. Look no further than Ty Montgomery here folks; with his strong personal character and super poise he’s considered one of the good guys. His highest praise comes out of the combine saying that he’s an “accountable teammate” by coaching staffs, and oh yeah… by the way, he’s taller than Randall Cobb.

Scouting Report on Ty Montgomery

Alright, so by now you’ve already Googled him, and seen his combine weakness. I hear you! You doubt me, because why should you just take my word for this guy? You’ve witnessed the scouting report, and have burning questions like these:

  • Route running capabilities?
  • Non-Natural wide receiver characteristics?
  • Opportunity with catching hands?
  • Too muscled physically?

People! This is exactly why A-Rod is gonna turn this kid into a friggin’ Monster! I don’t care about the above scouting report, what I do C-A-R-E about is the known fact! Ty Montgomery CAN run inside & outside extremely well, you can line him up anywhere. Also, he’s played Defensive Back in his past (great vision) and perspective when he’s on offensive etc. Stanford educated, yep he’s a smart and a well coached individual from the Pac-12.

Oh, and the too muscled bit? Hah hah, that’s the best part of all, because he’s gonna be really tuff to “Jam” at the line of scrimmage!

When I’m looking for a Sleeper, or a Waiver Wire fill in (such as this article) I tend to check my “Believe Window” for Fantasy Football, and seek the truth.   What’s your belief window? Are there principles etched in glass that you won’t see past? Is the NFL scouting report the end all for you? I love to challenge thoughts that I believe to be true even thought I have zero data on the player yet to make his NFL debut.

Summary

It’s the workload that I’m banking on for Ty Montgomery this year. When you run the numbers in this pass-happy Green Bay offense, a solid defense is going to take focus on your “Top” Stud wide receiver, that’s just a given. With Jordy gone Cobb will play that main WR role and in my humble opinion DaVante Adams will invade his numbers only to leave the door wide open for my boy Ty Montgomery to shine, just as Cobb did his rookie year looking back when Greg Jennings used to play for the Pack.

Will the shoe fit? Can we “TY” this one on? I’m here to say 100% YES!!

Week 17 Waiver Wire

If your fantasy league continues into week 17, good luck. There will be a mess of fantasy studs who rest their bodies in your championship week in order to get ready for the playoffs. Predicting who will sit and how much guys like Peyton Manning will play is nearly impossible. The best advice I can give you is: prepare for the worst, and follow the news closely. You don't want to be caught empty-handed come Sunday when you find out Tom Brady is slated to play 1 quarter. Here are some guys who should be available on the week 17 waiver wire who could provide value this week. Note: None of these players are backups, I'm writing as if everyone will play. Don't look for Brock Osweiler or Jimmy Garoppolo here.

Waiver Wire Quarterbacks for Week 17:

Andy Dalton (CIN) @ PIT- It would take a lot of guts to play someone as inconsistent as Andy Dalton in the fantasy playoffs. But you can't overlook how bad the Pittsburgh defense is. From week 7 to week 15, every QB facing PIT scored 2+ TDs. Last week that streak stopped, but did you really think a QB like Alex Smith would throw 2+ TDs? In their last matchup, Dalton put up 26.28 fantasy points, with 302/2 through the air and 4/22/1 on the ground. A.J. Green and Dalton could have a field day this week. With the latest kickoff of the week, Dalton is a great backup plan at QB for week 17.

Andy Dalton has great matchup on Sunday Night Football and is worth a look as a QB streamer.

Teddy Bridgewater (MIN) vs. CHI- The 1st round rookie has made great progress for the Vikings this season. After a slow start, Bridgewater has scored less than 14.5 fantasy points once since week 9. The Chicago secondary is bad, I like Teddy's chances of getting to 200+ yards with 2+ TDs this week.

Waiver Wire Running Backs for Week 17:

Matt Asiata (MIN) vs. CHI- He's not very exciting and rarely, or never, breaks off a big run. But he grinds his way through the defense and always falls forward. Although Asiata is as TD-dependent as they come, he has a good chance to get in the end-zone against a weak Chicago defense.

Branden Oliver (SD)- Oliver was the Chargers' workhouse with Ryan Mathews inactive. He had 81 yards on 16 touches. He's an interesting play against the Chiefs defense. Although his TD chances are low (the Chiefs D simply does not allow rushing TDs, only 3 on the season), KC does have the 3rd-worst YPC allowed. He's a quality yardage play for week 17 should Mathews miss another game.

Kerwynn Williams (ARI) @ SF- The San Francisco defense has regressed to an average unit. They greatly miss Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. Williams saw only 2 touches Sunday night against Seattle, but his replacement Stepfan Taylor was horrible (1.7 YPC). Williams saw 34 touches the previous 2 weeks, with Ryan Lindley at QB I expect a heavy dosage of running plays for Arizona. Williams should have some good volume for a waiver wire RB.

Devonta Freeman (ATL) vs. CAR- Freeman shined after Steven Jackson was forced to leave the game with an injury. Freeman had 8 touches and racked up 84 yards and a TD. He has more big play ability than Jacquizz Rodgers. If Steven Jackson misses this week's NFC South championship game, Freeman is the ATL RB I want.

Waiver Wire Wide Receivers for Week 17:

Greg Jennings is a solid WR3 given the improved play of Teddy Bridgewater.

Greg Jennings (MIN) vs. CHI- Bridgewater has an eye for Jennings in the red zone. Jennings has a TD in 4 of his last 5 games. He has a dream matchup with Chicago that only boosts his chances of scoring yet another TD this week.

Marquess Wilson (CHI) @ MIN- In his 1st game with Jimmy Clausen, Wilson saw 10 targets. He had a bad drop, but the Bears will continue to evaluate his skills and give him chances. He's got great volume for a WR on the waiver wire. With Cutler back he has a better chance to make a big play down field.

Chris Hogan (BUF) @ NE- PPR ONLY, I expect the Bills to have to pass to stay in the game against New England. With Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner on the outside, I can see many passes being funneled to Hogan over the middle. Note, in the Bills last 4 losses, Hogan has averaged 8.5 targets/game. If you think the Bills will be losing at New England, then Hogan makes for an interesting PPR play.

Waiver Wire Tight Ends for Week 17:

Mychal Rivera (OAK) @ DEN- Chase volume when streaming. Players with the most volume are most likely to score, Rivera is actually 8th in targets among TEs. Denver gives up the 3rd most fantasy points to TEs thanks to poor safety play, Rivera is a fine TE streamer for week 17.

Jermaine Gresham (CIN) @ PIT- He saw 11 targets last week and scored a TD. The tight end position has been dead this year, Gresham has 4 TDs in his last 5 games. He's not a bad guy to take a shot on this week.

Scott Chandler (BUF) @ NE- The same logic for Chris Hogan applies to Scott Chandler. With the Pats top corners locking down Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, I expect Kyle Orton to look to the middle of the field often. Chandler should see a handful of looks, especially if the Bills get into the redzone.

Waiver Wire Defenses for Week 17:

Barry Church and the Cowboys defense look like a strong streaming D against Washington.

New Orleans Saints @ TB- The Bucs netted less than 100 yards of total offense last week. Even though the Saints D isn't elite, you want to target the sack & turnover machine known as Josh McCown.

Minnesota Vikings vs. CHI- The Vikings defense is 2nd in the league in sacks this year. They have a great matchup at home against a shaky Chicago offensive line. They have scored 8+ points in 4 of their last 5 home games, with the exception being a game against Green Bay.

Dallas Cowboys @ WAS- They had a great showing at home against the Colts last week. Now they face the Redskins and the shaky Robert Griffin III. Remember, the Cowboys are undefeated on the road this year. It's an average defense with a great matchup for those who are desperate.

Good luck in week 17, remember to post if you have a question or comment. Good luck in your fantasy finals.

Week 16 Waiver Wire: Championship Week

Championship week is upon us. Congratulations if your team has made it this far. A lot of you were probably burned by Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Jordy Nelson, or Julio Jones this past week; and if you survived last week even with those players consider yourself lucky. The playoffs of fantasy football remind us of one thing, Luck. Generally speaking, it takes skill, mixed with a little luck, to get to the fantasy playoffs. But winning in the playoffs is all luck. Jordy Nelson dropped a 94 yard touchdown, that's unlucky for your fantasy team. But if you had Nelson on your team, that's because you were smart and probably drafted him. In the end, just remember to have fun, after all its Fantasy football. Here are the best players on the week 16 waiver wire, good luck with championship week!

Waiver Wire Quarterbacks for Week 16:

Robert Griffin has a perfect matchup against the Eagles in championship week.

Robert Griffin (WAS) vs. PHI- RGIII will get the start in place of Colt McCoy on Saturday, yes Saturday; Griffin is a fine streaming option against Philly. I think Griffin is a terrible QB and was overrated due to media hype coming out of college. But that means nothing in fantasy. The Eagles pass defense is one of the worst in the league. Griffin has the potential to connect on a few deep balls against a very burnable secondary. His rushing stats should help raise his floor as well. Simply put, Griffin is a bad QB who has a good chance of having a good statistical game this week. If you can stomach the risk, take the chance.

Teddy Bridgewater (MIN) @ MIA- Bridgewater isn't really a QB1 this week, but he makes for a safe QB2 play against a reeling Miami defense. The 1st round rookie has scored less than 14.5 fantasy points only once since week 9, so he has a good floor. But he plays in a limited offense that caps his upside. If you are really in a bind, or a 2 QB league, try Bridgewater.

Waiver Wire Running Backs for Week 16

Joseph Randle (DAL) vs. IND- With the news of DeMarco Murray's hand surgery, there is a good chance Randle will be the lead RB in Dallas for week 16. We have seen flashes of Randle's ability this season, if Murray were to be out he'd surely be an RB2.

Matt Asiata (MIN) @ MIA- Like Bridgewater, Asiata isn't a recommended fantasy start. But when you are scraping the bottom of the fantasy barrel, you are looking for opportunity. Asiata has averaged 15.5 touches/game the last 4 weeks and consistently gets checkdowns from Bridgewater. If you are in a PPR league, Asiata makes for a safe and uninspiring FLEX play.

Toby Gerhart (JAX) vs. TEN- Filling in for an injured Denard Robinson, Gerhart led the Jaguars RBBC and totaled 63 yards on 15 touches. It was nothing special, but this week's matchup against Tennessee is much better for the fantasy draft bust. If Gerhart can lead the committee again, and that's a big IF, he can flirt with FLEX value.

With Frank Gore concussed, Carlos Hyde could become the leader of the San Francisco backfield.

Carlos Hyde/Bruce Miller/Alfonso Smith (SF) vs. SD- Frank Gore went down with a concussion against the Seahawks last week. Hyde later went down with an injury and Miller and Smith formed a committee in their place. If Hyde is active, he should dominate the San Francisco backfield and would have the volume you are looking for in a RB. If not, Miller and Smith will likely form a value killing timeshare, but if I had to pick one it would be Miller. The fullback Miller saw 6 targets last week and at least has passing game volume.

Branden Oliver (SD) @ SF- If Ryan Mathews can't play again; Oliver is worth a look as a FLEX. He has the lion's share of the running back committee in San Diego when Mathews is out. We saw that he can produce in weeks 5 and 6 when he had 45/215/2 on the ground.

If you are desperate for a RB this week, CHASE VOLUME! There aren't many good options, so grab the guys who get the most touches and hope for a goal-line TD.

Waiver Wire Wide Receivers for Week 16

Charles Johnson (MIN) @ MIA- I can't beat the drum on Johnson any longer, he's playing too well to be owned in just 32% of leagues. Johnson has seen 7+ targets in 4 of the Vikings last 5 games. And if they didn't blow out the Panthers in week 13, I'd bet that would be 5 of 5. He has the volume and the physical tools. He is a solid WR3 for those in need during championship week.

Harry Douglas (ATL) @ NO- Douglas did his thing filling in for an injured Julio Jones putting up a 10/131 line on 14 targets. The undersized WR is not going to score many TDs, but he is pure gold in PPR. If Jones is forced to miss another game, fire up Douglas as a WR3. In his 2 starts this year, Douglas has a combined 19/247/0 on 26 targets.

Nate Washington (TEN) @ JAX- I wouldn't want to play anyone in this Jaguars vs. Titans game. It is a matchup of 2 bad defenses with 2 bad offenses, something has to give right? Washington is interesting at the least as he saw 10 targets last week and went over 100 yards. I wouldn't play him unless I really had to, and even then I wouldn't be too excited.

Devin Hester (ATL) @ NO- He's not a very good WR, but the Falcons understand that they must manufacture touches for Hester when Julio Jones is out. Without Jones and Antoine Smith, Hester is the only offensive playmaker for Atlanta. If are a high risk fantasy player, Hester fits your style this week if and only if Julio Jones is out.

Waiver Wire Tight Ends for Week 16

Jared Cook (STL) vs. NYG- He has 13 targets the last 2 weeks, not bad if you are looking for a streamer.

Heath Miller (PIT) vs. KC- In week 4 he had 10/85/1, in week 8 he had 7/112/1, in week 13, he had 8/82/0. His big games are completely random, but seem to come every 3-4 weeks...I'm saying there's a chance. There aren't any good TE pickups out there, but if Miller is there give him a shot.

Brent Celek (PHI) @ WAS- With Mark Sanchez struggling the Eagles may call more inside passing plays, that bodes well for Celek, an in-line TE.

Waiver Wire Defenses for Week 16

Carolina Panthers (vs. CLE) - Did you see Johnny Manziel play Sunday? Of course you did. The Browns offense almost kicked a field goal with Johnny Football at the helm. Although I don't expect that bad of a performance again, the Browns offense is really bad right now and should be targeted for fantasy defenses.

Luke Keuchly and the Panthers defense make a solid streamer against the Browns and Johnny Manziel.

San Diego Chargers (@ SF) - They have trouble creating turnovers, but have held New England to 23 points and Denver to 22 points over the last 2 weeks. Colin Kaepernick has taken 4+ sacks in 6 of the Niners last 8 games. Kaep has 5 INTs in his last 4 games. Plus, Frank Gore may be out with a concussion. The Chargers D is a risky play, but they have a great matchup.

Cleveland Browns (@ CAR) - If Cam Newton is out again, the Panthers won't be a threat to score many points. Their o-line is a mess and could give up a handful of sacks as well. Just keep an eye on Joe Haden's injury status this week. The Browns D may be without their shutdown corner.

Tennessee Titans & Jacksonville Jaguars- I hope this is the Thursday night game to end all Thursday night games. The short week leads to bad football week after week after week. With 2 historically bad teams playing this Thursday, don't be surprised to see a score of 11-4 and a new record for punts in a game. Note: Neither defense is good, but neither offense is good. By starting one of these defenses you are playing with fire. I'm all for gambling on this game if there are no better options, but each defense carries huge risk.

Good luck in the finals this week, I wish you all the best. Thank you for reading the waiver wire posts this year, and if you have any questions or comments about any player post below.

Week 15 Waiver Wire: Playoff Gems

Week 14 was more about duds from fantasy stars than it was about sleepers breaking out. Josh Gordon, Drew Brees, and Jimmy Graham likely spoiled your fantasy season if you started them last week. Sure, players like Jarius Wright and Cole Beasley had good games, but you don't want to pick them up. No top players were injured and there are no players screaming "Add me!" on the wire. But there are still players you should pickup, even with only 2 weeks remaining in the fantasy season; you need to maximize your roster until the end. Here are the top players on the week 15 waiver wire:

Waiver Wire Quarterbacks for Week 15:

Mark Sanchez is a league-winning QB with good matchups in weeks 15 and 16.

Mark Sanchez- Many owners probably dumped Sanchez last week as he had a tough matchup with Seattle. If the "Sanchize" is available in your league go get him! He finishes his season with matchups against Dallas and Washington. He is your league-winning QB Streamer.

Jake Locker-There are not many attractive streamer options available on the week 15 waiver wire. If you can handle the risk, Locker is a logical play. Zach Mettenberger is out with an injury, and locker steps in with a tasty home matchup versus the Jets. The Jets should have allowed 25 fantasy points to Teddy Bridgewater last week. Locker is athletic and has a big arm, he can make some big plays and some dumb ones. He is a fine dart-throw QB2 this week.

Waiver Wire Running Backs for Week 15:

Latavius Murray- Thank You, Tony Sparano! The Raiders FINALLY featured Murray in their offense, giving him 25 touches last week. Although he only finished with 85 yards, the usage is encouraging. Next week he gets the Chiefs porous run defense, which he shredded for 112 yards and 2 TDs on just 4 carries the last time they played. This means nothing, but the Raiders are 2-0 since giving Murray more playing time. Also, he is taller, heavier, and faster than Adrian Peterson, let that sink in. Murray is a physical freak.

Kerwyn Williams- He came off the practice squad to rush 19 times for 100 yards against the Chiefs last week. Unfortunately, Kerwyn's matchups during the next 2 weeks (@ STL, vs. SEA) are very tough. If you desperately need to play a RB with volume, grab "Kerwyn the Frog".

Marcel Reece has been underappreciated his entire career. He's a solid PPR play in the playoff weeks.

Marcel Reece- Remember when you used to wait for Darren McFadden to get hurt so Marcel Reece could be unleashed? The Raiders may have finally learned that Reece is a great player. He's better suited for PPR leagues, as he is a great receiver out of the backfield.

Waiver Wire Wide Receivers for Week 15:

Marquess Wilson- He is stepping into Brandon Marshall's starting role now that Marshall is done for the season. That sounds good on paper, but I see Wilson sliding in as the 4th option in the Bears passing "attack", behind Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, and Matt Forte. He has WR3 upside, but given the problems the Bears have had its tough to say he's going to make an immediate fantasy impact. Brandon Marshall wasn't having a good season in that same role.

Harry Douglas- Julio Jones went down late Monday night with a hip injury. Although we don't know if Jones will miss time, Douglas is a must-add. If Jones were to miss this week's dreamy matchup vs. Pittsburgh, Douglas is an immediate WR3.

Charles Johnson- His athletic ability is showing and he has become the starting "X" receiver in Minnesota. That's the key role you want in Norv Turner's offense. If you need to gamble on a WR, take a bet on Johnson's physical ability and volume.

Donte Moncrief- The targets aren't there quite yet, but the snaps are. Moncrief finally passed Hakeem Nicks on the Colts' depth chart and is now the No. 3 WR. He has a sky-high ceiling but also a really low floor. He will be an intriguing boom-or-bust WR3 in week 15. If Reggie Wayne continues his poor play, Moncrief could jump into the number 2 spot for next week.

Chris Hogan- Hogan is PPR Gold. Hogan works underneath and catches a lot of short passes. If you are in a PPR league and need a WR, Hogan is a safe play next week against Green Bay. The Bills will likely be trailing and need to throw often.

Marquise Lee- He's not exactly going to set the world on fire, but those of you in deeper leagues should take notice. He has 8 targets in his last 2 games and has had moderate success posting a 11/142/1 line in those games. The Jaguars offense is hard to trust, but Lee makes a nice bench piece this week. He gets Tennessee during championship week.

Waiver Wire Tight Ends for Week 15:

Mychal Rivera- After fading for a few weeks, Derek Carr has turned back to Rivera giving him 15 targets in the last 2 weeks. The Chiefs are middle of the road against TEs, and are missing Eric Berry badly (prayers to him and his family). Rivera is a solid TE desperation play; the position has been so bad all season.

Scott Chandler- like Chris Hogan, I think Chandler isn't a bad play because the Bills will probably be playing from behind. I wouldn't recommend playing Chandler, but you could do worse.

Waiver Wire Defenses for Week 15:

New York Giants- Hello, Washington Redskins. The Redskins offense has been a mess, creating sacks and turnovers in bunches. The Giants have feasted on cupcake matchups the last 2 weeks, notching 15 sacks and 3 turnovers. A home game with Washington will once again be rewarding for fantasy owners.

Jason Pierre-Paul and the Giants have 15 sacks the last 2 weeks. They have another good matchup in Washington this week.

Green Bay Packers- A date at Buffalo is not easy, but the Packers defense has looked great since Clay Matthews moved to inside linebacker. They also get the atrocious Tampa Bay offense during Championship week.

Cleveland Browns- Joe Haden has been playing at an all-pro level lately, and has historically shut down A.J. Green. Take A.J. Green away and Andy Dalton usually crumbles. The Browns are a risky play with high-upside this week.

Tennessee Titans- They have a good matchup with the Jets, but I actually HATE THE TITANS THIS WEEK and wanted to shed light on this game. The Jets are a bad offense; they struggle passing and are prone to the pick-6. They usually fall behind early and are forced to throw. The Titans can't score and they can't stop the run. The Jets will pound the rock with success, I wouldn't be surprised if the Jets only threw the ball 15 times this week, I'm not touching Tennessee's defense.

Good luck this week, I hope you all make it to championship week. If you have any questions or comments, even on players not on this list, please post below.

 

Waiver Wire Week 14, Fantasy Playoff Breakouts!

Here's our week 14 waiver wire pickups, ranked from best to worse (by position) based on my own lousy opinion. As you work hard to make it deep into the playoffs the waiver wire can be rocket fuel to propel you to the Fantasy Football Super-Bowl. If you asked me what my secret sauce is on all my winning teams it's the waiver wire. Don't over look the options this week especially Stills, Murray and Sanchez. These three guys could help you carry home the championship this year.

Dan Herron, RB, Indianapolis Colts (6 percent owned)

  • It's obvious that Trent Richardson is done as a featured back. Herron is the new lead back on a high powered offense and a must add in all formats head into the fantasy football playoffs.

Latavius Murray, RB, Oakland Raiders (20.0 percent owned)

  • Murray has only shinned for us once, but two things are very obvious at this point in the season. 1) difference making RB's are very hard to come by on the waiver wire and 2) you have got to own anyone with the potential Murray has shown us.

LeGarrette Blount, RB, New England Patriots

  • Gray has faded to black as Blount handles the majority of carries for this high powered offense. New England's backfield is one I'd rather avoid but in deeper league you may not have a choice.

Pierre Thomas, RB, New Orleans Saints

  • In PPR formats he could be your best "what the hell" flex play in a pinch. His production will be up and down so temper your expectations.

Kenny Stills, WR, New Orleans Saints (12 percent owned)

  • Stills has not only been a beast since Cooks went down, he has been extremely reliable and that sir will net him consistent targets from Brees. Stills is a must own in all formats.

Donte Moncrief, WR, Indianapolis Colts (2.0 percent owned)

  • Moncrief is worth a flier in deeper leagues as his big play potential and snap count could rise in the coming weeks.

Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (0.9 percent owned)

  • The new garbage time monster is alive in Jacksonville, only a pickup for desperate owners without better WR/2/3 options on stronger offenses.

Jordan Reed, TE, Washington Redskins (62.0 percent owned)

  • As long as he's healthy, Reed is a top 10 fantasy tight end.

Mark Sanchez, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (16.0 percent owned)

  • His matchups down the stretch include the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins. You will not start Sanchez in Week 14 against the Seahawks defense.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Houston Texans (4 percent owned)

  • Mr. Fitz-magic just threw for six touchdown... Yes 6. It was very painful to watch it happen as I dropped down the winning ranks in my Fanduel plays with all the top scorers having played Fitz.. Anyways, you probably have better options but he's worth a mention in our week 14 waiver wire article based on his 6 TD performance alone.

Johnny Manziel, QB, Cleveland Browns (18 percent owned)

  • Johnny Football could be the new Browns QB going forward, oh and he's throwing the rock to one of the best WR's playing the game right now. Add his rushing prowess and you've got a solid QB-2 in the making.

Colt McCoy, QB, Washington Redskins (1 percent owned)

  • McCoy is another decent option, just one slot below Manziel in my waiver wire picks for week 14. He has a stable of productive receivers and should provide QB-2 numbers down the stretch.
