I'll be using Yahoo's "percentage rostered" data. Players are listed in order of priority, by position. Most of the players listed are available in at least 75% percent of leagues.

D.J. Chark

  • Available in 84% of leagues

Veteran WR D.J. Chark has missed six games this season so it’s easy to forget how effective he’s been. He has at least four targets in games that he’s played at least 50% of the snaps in (PFF) and that trend continued this week.

The Lions trounced the Jaguars as Chark handled the No. 2 role alongside WR Amon-Ra St. Brown. Chark’s 14% target share isn’t ideal but it was good for second on the team behind St. Brown (29%). Chark has the athletic profile you want in a wideout and could offer WR3 value moving forward.

Jameson Williams

  • Available in 53% of leagues

Rookie WR Jameson Williams made his long-awaited debut this week but only played eight offensive snaps (PFF). It’s likely wise that he’s being eased back in but fantasy managers are certainly eager to see what this talented wideout can bring to the field. The Lions have won four of their last five and are averaging 31 points per game over their last four.

Once Williams is back to full strength (hopefully soon), he could the playoff hammer your fantasy team needs down the stretch.

FAAB: 25%

Tyler Huntley

  • Available in 99% of leagues

QB Lamar Jackson suffered a knee injury that, while reportedly isn’t season-ending, will likely cost him some time. Backup QB Tyler Huntley steps back into the starting role, a position he held at over the second-half of last season.

From Weeks 11-18 last season, Huntley appeared in five games. In those games, he averaged over 20 fantasy points per game. He also averaged 56 rushing yards per game. Like Jackson, Huntley offers a rushing floor. Couple that with an excellent offensive system and Huntley could be the ideal pivot as we near the fantasy playoffs.

FAAB: 25%


Additional Waiver Targets

Michael Gallup

  • Available in 47% of leagues

WR Michael Gallup continued his strong run of success by finding the end zone twice as the Cowboys topped the Colts.

Gallup tied fellow WR CeeDee Lamb in targets (7) and continues to serve as the ideal No. 2 option in the Cowboys passing game. As long as QB Dak Prescott is playing at a high level, Gallup offers a nice piece of a high-scoring offense.

Zonovan Knight

  • Available in 53% of leagues

Rookie RB Zonovan Knight picked up right where he left off last week by racking up 118 scrimmage yards on 20 touches. He hasn’t scored through two games but his usage is extremely encouraging. He’s racked up 37 touches over two weeks and figures to remain the lead RB. Up next is a tough test against the Bills but he’s an RB3 with upside moving forward.

FAAB: 25%

James Cook

  • Available in 77% of leagues

Rookie RB James Cook handled 48% of the RB rushing attempts and 60% of the RB targets on Thursday night. His 20 touches shattered his previous high-water mark of 11 as the Bills were willing to let Cook get into an excellent rhythm.

We’ve been waiting for Cook to earn a larger role and we might be seeing that come to fruition. Rookies tend to improve over the second half of the season and it’s looking like Cook is trending in that direction. His 32 snaps (PFF) also represented a new season-high.

FAAB: 20%

Jerick McKinnon

  • Available in 59% of leagues

The only two RBs to receive carries in Week 13 were rookie Isiah Pacheco (14) and veteran Jerick McKinnon (8). McKinnon also scored through the air for the second time this season.

Interestingly enough, this was the first time that McKinnon did not record a single snap on special teams this season. His 10 total touches also tied his season-best mark (PFF). If the Chiefs want to incorporate McKinnon into the offense more down the stretch, that’s excellent for fantasy managers.

FAAB: 15%

Corey Davis

  • Available in 87% of leagues

QB Mike White has provided a much-need spark for the Jets offense over the last two weeks. One beneficiary has been WR Corey Davis.

His 10 targets in Week 13 only resulted in a 17% target share but he’s averaging 6.4 targets in non-Zach Wilson games. That’s solid volume, especially if the White continues to sling it each week. Davis has the talent and profile you want in a late-season waiver addition.

FAAB: 15%

Jahan Dotson

  • Available in 85% of leagues

Rookie WR Jahan Dotson had his best game since returning from injury. His nine targets (22% target share) in Week 13 were a season-high and his most since Week 3. He is working with QB Taylor Heinicke now as opposed to QB Carson Wentz so it’s encouraging to see him develop rapport with his signal caller.

The Commanders are on bye next week but Dotson is turning the corner just in time for your fantasy playoffs.

FAAB: 15%

Demarcus Robinson

  • Available in 88% of leagues

Veteran WR Demarcus Robinson, much like the Ravens offense, has been volatile this season. He has just one TD on the year but has racked up 21 targets, 17 receptions, and 186 receiving yards over his last three games.

He’ll work with QB Tyler Huntley for at least a week so we’ll see how that chemistry plays out moving forward.

FAAB: 10%


Cam Akers

Cam Akers

  • Available in 55% of leagues

Are we…recommending someone from the Rams? Indeed we are.

RB Cam Akers found the end zone twice in Week 13 and handled 85% of the RB rushing attempts. He also topped 50% of the offensive snaps for the first time this season.

The volume should continue to be there but the efficiency and production might not. He’s a touchdown-dependent option at this point but you could do much more from a talent perspective.

FAAB: 10%

Nico Collins

  • Available in 71% of leagues

In his first game without teammate Brandin Cooks (calf), WR Nico Collins caught three passes (10 targets) for 35 yards and a score. The catch percentage isn’t great but Collins has played at least 40 snaps (PFF) in all but one game this season. If that volume is going to see that level of volume, he’s worth a stash.

FAAB: 7%

Jordan Mason

  • Available in 85% of leagues

It’s nice to see that RB Christian McCaffrey still has matchup-winning upside. It’s also nice that we have some clarity to the 49ers backfield which is something we don’t say very often.

RB Jordan Mason handled 30% of the rushing attempts while fellow RB Tyrion Davis-Price did not receive a single opportunity. Mason has seen an increase in both rushing attempts and rushing yards over the last three weeks which culminated in a respectable 8 / 51 line on the ground this week.

CMC is the only RB you want to start in this backfield, but Mason looks like the clear No. 2.

FAAB: 5%

Ty Johnson

  • Available in 91% of leagues

It was fellow RB Zonovan Knight who commanded the majority of the rushing attempts this week but RB Ty Johnson remained heavily involved in the passing game. His seven targets accounted for only 12% of the target share as QB Mike White attempted 57 passes. Still, that passing down usage is encouraging and makes him a viable stash with six teams on bye next week.

FAAB: 5%

Tyler Allgeier

  • Available in 55% of leagues

Rookie RB Tyler Allgeier is averaging almost 11 rushing attempts per game and remains available in over half of leagues. In Week 13, he accounted for 40% of the RB rushing attempts and continued to split work with teammate Cordarrelle Patterson. It is worth noting that Allgeier out-snapped Patterson on Sunday after Patterson led the way last week.

The Falcons are on bye next week so Allgeier is nothing more than an end-of-bench stash.

FAAB: 5%


QB Streamers for Week 14

Brock Purdy

  • Available in 100% of leagues

QB Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot and will miss the remainder of the season. Up next, rookie QB Brock Purdy.

Purdy played exceptionally well in his first extended action. The seventh-round rookie out of Iowa State completed 25 of 37 passes for 210 yards, one TD, and one INT as the 49ers cruised to victory over the Dolphins.

Up next is a matchup with the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay has been stingy against the run this season (No. 5 per NFL DvP) but they are beatable elsewhere. San Francisco has the coaching, scheme, and talent to get the most out of Purdy who will spend all week getting the first team reps. He’s a fine option with six teams on bye next week.

FAAB: 5%

Mike White

  • Available in 82% of leagues

There wasn’t the same level of fireworks this week but QB Mike White turned in another solid fantasy outing. Despite not throwing a TD, he threw for 369 yards and now has 684 passing yards through two games. He squares off against the Bills next week but, like Purdy, he is surrounded by talent and is a decent streaming option during the last bye week of the season.

Defense Streamer for Week 14

Las Vegas

  • Available in 89% of leagues

My streak of streaming teams that play Houston is coming to an end. I mean, if you are part of the 96% of teams that roster the Dallas Cowboys, by all means play them next week against the hapless Texans.

Let’s pivot. The Las Vegas Raiders, fresh off a divisional victory over the Chargers, head to LA to take on the Rams. It’s well-documented how poor the Rams have fared this season and how injuries have piled up. The Raiders defense has racked up 21 sacks and nine turnovers thus far and will undoubtedly add to those totals next week.
