Our weekly fantasy football waiver wire report provides you with valuable insight on who you should be targeting in your leagues. Josh Lieberman breaks down his top 10 list of NFL players with fewer than 30% ownership in Yahoo fantasy leagues.
Injuries, injuries and more injuries. What is a fantasy owner to do with all these key players going down? If you said, “Check out the Waiver Wire report from Touchdown Fantasy”, you would be on the right track to finding a reason to believe, to believe that you can overcome a Dalvin Cook or Derek Carr injury! We are here to help, so if you work your waiver wire right to find those potential diamonds in the rough, you can salvage your season and overcome these speed bumps. That’s right, just speed bumps, folks. Speed bumps along the road to your league championship! Let’s start helping you get there.
Here are the top adds for the upcoming week:
#7) Alex Collins (RB – BAL) – Collins gets the upgrade to the big boy board this week, after making it on the Honorable Mentions list last week. I am happy with my call from last week, as he rewarded owners who gave him a start with a decent effort (82 yards rushing). Mr. Collins did put the ball on the ground again, and that cannot keep happening if he hopes to play for a Harbaugh. 10% bid.
#8) Jaron Brown (WR – ARZ) – It is now time to get this kid some love, after a monster game against the 49ers. Jaron went off for 105 yards on 8 grabs, while being targeted 12 times by Palmer. Looks like Zona will be throwing a ton until David Johnson comes back, so there is a lot of volume to be scooped up, even after Fitz gets his. A 5-10% bid should give you a horse in the race.
#9) Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE – NYJ) – Another nomination on the Waiver Wire report for ASJ, as he had a decent day at the office for the Jets for the second week in a row. With his team picking up back to back wins, roughly two more than this guy thought they would get the entire season, there is hope that the Jets will still be playing to win some weeks, so ASJ might continue to see decent volume. He had 46 yards on four grabs, and is a worthwhile add at a talent depleted TE position.
#10) D’onta Foreman (RB – HOU) – On my waiver report last week, and he got the expected uptick in volume, though it was, admittedly, an underwhelming performance. 13 carries with a 3.5 avg won’t help pay the bills, but he increased his snap % to 29, up from 24 the previous week. Game flow was obviously strange in this game, and it’s always tough to scrutinize usage from a fantasy relevance perspective when your team wins 57-14! I am still on board with D’onta, and think he is worth rostering in deeper leagues, or simply as depth for your RB group. 5-10% should be a reasonable amount to bid here.
Honorable Mentions: JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR – PIT), Josh Docton (WR – WAS), Elijah McGuire (QB – JAC), Taylor Gabriel (WR – ATL), Jerick Mckinnon (RB – MIN), Bruce Ellington (WR – HOU)
