Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 14 – Gibt è das Akers-Comeback? – TOUCHDOWN24

We’re entering the time of year where this column feels like a bit of a copy from the previous week. Many managers have long since given up on the year, and those who are still motivated tend to have solid rosters. As a result, fewer players are picked up from the waiver and are therefore still available the following week. However, today in Week 14 of NFL Waiver Wire we’re of course giving you a batch of new waiver goals for all league types.

My General Pickup List:

1. Cam Akers
2. DJ Dallas
3.Tyler Huntley

Week 14 quarterback waiver telegram

Tyler Huntley, Baltimore Ravens, 0.1% drafted

It came as a shock to the Ravens as Lamar Jackson sat out Sunday’s game with a knee injury, but backup Huntley was able to salvage the win on the road (10-9). According to Ravens head coach Jon Harbaugh, Lamar will be out “days or weeks,” which of course means absolutely nothing to us. As of today, I’d say there’s a good chance Huntley will start Week 14 against the Steelers. With his run up on the floor, the 24-year-old is perfectly capable of making it through the top 12 week after week.

Jared Goff, Detroit Lions, 22.6% of roster

As long as the Lions’ skill position players are in shape, Goff is on the fantasy radar. Amon-Ra St. Brown, D’Andre Swift and company proved it against the Jaguars over the weekend and now first-round pick Jameson Williams is returning from injury. The Lions have the seventh easiest game schedule for quarterbacks over the next four weeks, according to Pro Football Focus (PFF). Starting with Vikings in week 14, there should definitely be a heavy game script for Goff.

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans, 13.3% on the roster

Tannehill hasn’t been the epitome of consistency this year, but he should be able to put in a strong performance against the Jaguars. By Week 13, the Jags defense had allowed the eighth-most points to opposing quarterbacks—Jared Goff was only able to take advantage of that at the weekend. Tannehill’s ceiling isn’t huge in the Titans’ heavy offense, but the 34-year-old will at least give you a solid floor next weekend.

Runningback waiver thread Week 14

Cam Akers, Los Angeles Rams, 49.7% on the roster

The Rams’ offense is one of the biggest disappointments this year and Akers certainly played his part. However, in Week 13 against the Seahawks, LA was able to move the ball around a bit, which gave Akers opportunities which he converted (17 carries, two touchdowns). Without Matthew Stafford (IR-list), this offense will likely be nothing but mediocrity, but with the Raiders as a matchup in the Thursday Night Game, Akers returns to the Flex radar with this usage.

Zonovan Knight, New York Jets, 40.1% drafted

Knight, a mention in my column last week, once again looked like the best Jets back (15 carries, 90 yards) without the injured Michael Carter. He fielded 55 percent of snaps, including 11 of 12 plays inside the 10-yard line. Although Ty Johnson was the favorite for passing backs, Knight was also involved in the passing game (5 catches, 28 yards). We don’t know when Carter will officially return, but Knight’s performance will have earned him a role up front. For that reason alone, the rookie should be roasted everywhere.

DeeJay Dallas, Seattle Seahawks, 0.2% on the roster

The Seahawks’ running back room is becoming more and more like a hospital, where rookie Ken Walker was injured in the first quarter against the Rams — Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer were also out. This left Dallas ahead on offense, although he had to leave the field at short notice with an ankle injury. Everything looks good, though, giving Dallas a chance to star in a strong offense centered around star anchor Geno Smith: he screams RB2 value.

Wide Receiver Waiver Thread Week 14

Trent Sherfield, Miami Dolphins, 0.1% on the roster

Sherfield caught just three targets against the 49ers over the weekend, but made the most of his slim chances with a 75-yard touchdown run. With Jaylen Waddle struggling with a leg injury, Sherfield could draw a bigger role in Week 14 against the Chargers. Should Waddle lose the game, Sherfield is on the flexible radar. That makes him a speculative addition in a weak wideout waiver week.

Nico Collins, Houston Texans, 1.9% on the roster

Collins was a Target monster in the absence of Brandin Cooks (calf injury) but caught just three of his ten balls for 35 yards and a touchdown. However: This type of use cannot be found so quickly on the waiver. Additionally, there is an excellent schedule in playoff weeks 15 through 17 (Chiefs, Titans, and Jaguars). So taking Collins off the waiver now makes sense. Even in a tough matchup against the Cowboys defense next weekend, it could be a flex game.

Deep leagues or escort: Jameson Williams, Detroit Lions, 25.1% drafted

Williams made his NFL debut over the weekend, and while he only played eight snaps and failed to catch, it’s only a matter of time before he makes an impact. The Lions coaching staff will give him more credit each week, I’m not ruling out nearly 70-75% snaps in weeks 16-17. With big game potential shown in college, the rookie is an upstock that could turn out to be a championship winner.

Tight End Waiver Thread Week 14

Greg Dulcich, Denver Broncos, 28.8% on the roster

The Broncos looked to get Dulcich early and often in the game plan over the weekend: Wilson’s first three passes went in the rookie’s direction. At the end of the day, the 22-year-old had six catches for 85 yards, his best fantasy performance of the season. With Jerry Jeudy already injured and Courtland Sutton injured on Sunday, Denver has to look even harder at Dulcich as he is a top 12 option in Week 14.

Hunter Henry, New England Patriots, 19.8% of the roster

The Patriots don’t rely on Henry as much as he did last season, but his game against the Cardinals next Sunday is excellent. Through Week 13, Arizona’s defense allowed the second most fantasy points by opposing tight ends. In such a matchup, Henry is on the radar of the stream and will hopefully make it to the end zone—all you can expect for tight ends other than Kelce’s tight ends this year.

Deep leagues: Trey McBride, Arizona Cardinals, 0.7% on roster

Since Zach Ertz injured his knee, McBride has hit seven goals in two games. The Patriots, otherwise a strong defense, surprisingly allow the fifth-most points through opposing tight ends. The rookie is at least on the streaming radar, though his upside is limited by the Cardinals’ many other options in the passing game (Hopkins, Moore, Brown).

Defense Checkup – Week 14:

Arizona Cardinals vs. New England Patriots, 20.7% on roster

The Patriots offense under Mac Jones produces many turnovers and allows for many sacks. The Cardinals’ defense has gone up dramatically recently and should be one of the best starts of the week at home in Week 14.

Las Vegas Raiders @ Los Angeles Rams, 7.0% rostered

The Raiders defense isn’t great and will test my strategy of streaming every unit against the Rams offense sans Kupp and Stafford. However: The Rams’ offense is so weak that I’ll risk Las Vegas in some leagues.
