The Week 15 Waiver Wire Wide Receivers article features receivers aplenty as several popped out this week who are worth looking at as you either head into the first round or semi-finals of your playoff run. Need wide receiver help? Check these guys out.
Also make sure to read:
LaVon Brazill/Da'Rick Rogers - Colts
Looks like we might be seeing a bit of a shift in the Colts receiving corps after what we saw Sunday against the Bengals. Brazill scored big with 2 touchdown receptions, while also catching 3 passes for 53 yards. Rogers, who I had told someone on the Google+ Fantasy Page to keep an eye on, also didn't disappoint with 6 catches, 107 receiving yards and 2 scores of his own. I list both of these guys together because I think both have equal value in terms of production now that the Colts have finally realized Darrius Heyward-Bey isn't the answer as a starter. I'd prefer to pick up Rogers over Brazill in regards to true talent, but both players can be considered WR4/WR5. T.Y. Hilton should continue to lead the receivers in snaps.
Cordarrelle Patterson - Vikings
Now we know why the Vikings took Patterson so high in the 2013 NFL Draft. After a disappointing rookie season thus far, Patterson had his best game of the season after racking up 141 receiving yards off just 5 receptions with a touchdown against the Ravens. Patterson also came through in the return game with 111 total kick return yards. The question for redraft owners is whether Patterson can produce in Week 15, 16 and maybe Week 17. That's hard to answer considering the mess at quarterback, but Patterson is definitely worth picking up for receiver depth. The upside is starting to show through.
Justin Hunter - Titans
It's really hard for me to list Hunter simply because of the offense he's surrounded by. Not to mention his last 3 weeks have been a roller coaster. Hunter reeled in 109 yards and a score in Week 12 against Oakland, reeled in just one pass a week later against the Colts, but then bounced back again with a 4/114/1 statline against the Broncos. Hunter has a lot of upside. But as you can see from the numbers, he can put up a dud at any time. Pick him up, but he's nothing more than a WR5.
Rod Streater - Raiders
Rod Streater doesn't really get much love in fantasy circles, but he's quietly put up a solid string of games worthy of a flex spot the last several weeks. Ever since his 1 catch dud against the Giants in Week 10, Streater has put up catches and yards of 6/84, 5/93, 3/57 and 7/130 with a touchdown Sunday against the Jets. I picked up Streater in one draft, unfortunately he didn't start coming on until it was too late. Hopefully, he doesn't suffer the same fate for you.
