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.
