Week 14 Fantasy football waiver wire pickups to make
The fantasy football waiver wire can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 14.
Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Lamar Jackson, BAL (25-50%) — He offers almost nothing as a passer, but Jackson’s upside as a runner is still very appealing for the fantasy stretch run.
Jameis Winston, TB (25-50%) — It could implode at any time, but Winston is in the QB1 conversation for now.
Josh Allen, BUF (25-50%) — Allen is on fire. He went over 100 rushing yards last week and threw for two passing scores.
Dante Pettis, SF (25-50%) — The rookie is finally healthy and he exploded in Week 13. Look for Pettis to continue to produce down the fantasy stretch.
Adam Humphries, TB (20-40%) — He doesn’t offer as much upside as Godwin, but Humphries will continue to see plenty of work for the Bucs.
Jaylen Samuels, PIT (20-40%) — Yep, he’s TE-eligible on some commissioner sites.
Regular leagues (12 teams)
Baker Mayfield, CLV (5-10%) — It wasn’t the best performance out of Mayfield last week, but he still managed to nearly throw for 400 yards.
Jalen Richard, OAK (10-20%) — There’s still a somewhat crowded house in the Oakland backfield, but Richard has consistently shown explosive ability this season.
Rex Burkhead, NE (10-20%) — Burkhead is clearly the third man in the Patriots’ backfield pecking order, but he’s worth stashing as a premium handcuff.
Giovani Bernard, CIN (5-10%) — While there isn’t a ton to like about the Bengals offense right now, Bernard did see a lot of work in the passing game last week.
Ty Montgomery, BAL (5-10%) — Montgomery isn’t likely to get many touches in the run game, but he’ll factor in on passing downs in December for Baltimore.
Zay Jones, BUF (10-20%) — Jones has flown under the radar for much of the season, but he finally surfaced as a fantasy option last week with two scores against the Dolphins.
Curtis Samuel, CAR (10-20%) — Samuel’s role has continued to expand, and he actually led the Panthers in targets last week.
DeVante Parker, MIA (7-15%) — There isn’t a ton of juice to Parker for fantasy purposes, but he did find the end zone last week.
C.J. Uzomah, CIN (5-10%) — Uzomah doesn’t have much upside, but he continues to see plenty of volume for the Bengals.
Chris Herndon, NYJ (5-10%) — Despite lackluster fantasy numbers, Herndon saw seven targets in the Jets Week 13 loss.
Deep leagues (14-plus teams)
Derek Carr, OAK (1%) — Carr bounced back last week with three passing scores against the Chiefs.
Ryan Tannehill, MIA (1%) — While his yardage total didn’t impress, Tannehill did toss three touchdowns against a good Bills defense in Week 13.
Charcandrick West, KC (1-3%) — He’s behind Damien Williams in terms of fantasy preference, but West is worth a look in deep leagues.
Stevan Ridley, PIT (1%) — Ridley is a sneaky deep league add with James Conner banged up.
Antonio Callaway, CLV (3-5%) — Callaway’s big play upside again came to the surface last week.
DST streamers for Week 14
Buffalo Bills (1%) — The Bills are a prime spot to be this week’s top fantasy unit with an extremely favorable matchup against a Jets that has thrown at least one interception in 10-of-12 games this season. Buffalo notched double-digit fantasy points in their previous meeting against the Jets back in Week 10.
Tennessee Titans (1%) — Jacksonville’s offensive struggles have resulted in 12 sacks and four giveaways over their last three games. That means good things for the Titans this week.
Arizona Cardinals (1%) — Detroit has spiraled on offense through the middle of the season and have allowed double-digit fantasy points to five of their last six opponents. The Cardinals haven’t been a strong fantasy option for much the season, but they’re a high-upside streamer play this week.
