There might be some interesting guys out there in your league, but for the most part this week’s waiver wire is boring. A lot of guys from last week graduated to being too highly owned. I would empty the wallet if someone like Sammy Watkins was still available.
This seems like a stock up on players that are an injury away from being a fantasy starter. No one really jumps out as a must start player.

And like I always say, you know your league better than I do. Some of these bids might be far too high, some too low. Depth of the league and your roster construction has a lot to do with how much to bid as well. However, at this point, there is little reason not to spend whatever remaining FAAB dollars you have stashed away.
|Position||FAAB||Burn waiver priority?|
Kapri Bibbs – Bibbs left part of Sunday night’s game with an injury and still was only outsnapped by Booker 46-30. This is a time share that people don’t want to talk about. Sure Booker had more carries than anyone heading into the Monday night games, but that doesn’t mean Bibbs can’t have value.
Dontrelle Inman – If you didn’t get him a few weeks ago it is probably going to be harder to get him now. The Chargers are about to get a really nice playoff schedule.
Alfred Morris – Still here as the most valuable handcuff out there.
Tyreek Hill – We saw the potential Sunday night. I just don’t think you can be confident enough to start him in the playoffs unless you’re in a deep league or desperate.
Marquess Wilson – Had a nice week. It is tough to say if it will continue. He might be the top option in the passing game for the rest of the season. He might also fade into irrelevancy. I can’t imagine a scenario where I would want to start him the rest of the way.
Tyler Boyd – Probably the best receiver to own with Green down. Just not nearly as interesting as you want out of a waiver wire flier this late in the year.
Colin Kaepernick – My usual streamer needs to be owned just about anywhere now. The running to go with the passing offers too nice of a floor to let one of your opponents own him.
Vernon Davis – If Jordan Reed is out he is a borderline top-five tight end.
Adrian Peterson – The odds are more against him providing fantasy relevance than they are for him. If you need a handcuff to your running backs I would take any of the ones below him instead of him. In a vacuum I don’t want to go against him in the fantasy playoffs. Stash him on your bench; you don’t have to start him.
Cameron Artis-Payne – A handcuff to an injury prone back.
Jalen Richard – Looks like the next man up after Washington was a healthy scratch. He should have some deep league appeal without a Murray injury. If a Murray injury does happen he would be really interesting.
Mike Gillislee – Only reason he is down this far is because he got hurt this week. If something happens to McCoy he is one of the best handcuffs you can have.
Paul Perkins – I am still interested in the talent. Other than pass protection I am not sure Rashad Jennings offers a ton.
DuJuan Harris – Proved to be a nice option when Hyde doesn’t play.
Alex Collins – Next in line behind Rawls.
Deeper league adds
Quarterback: Matt Barkley (CHI)
Running back: Charles Sims (TB), Ameer Abdullah (DET), Andre Ellington (ARZ), Rex Burkhead (CIN), Denard Robinson (JAX), Damien Williams (MIA)
Wide Receiver: Malcolm Mitchell (NE), Taylor Gabriel (ATL), Ted Ginn (CAR), Brandon LaFell (CIN)
Colin Kaepernick @ Bears: Like I said above, his running offers a great floor. He doesn’t need to do much through the passing game to have a good game.
Tyrod Taylor @ Raiders: A nice matchup, and he should have Watkins playing nearly a full workload of snaps.
Alex Smith @ Falcons: An extremely boring play. The matchup is nice, and it should mean they have to throw a lot to keep up. That is about all I can say.
Chargers vs. Buccaneers: The Chargers have played some really nice defense this year for fantasy purposes. Winston looks great at times, but he is almost always good for a few random passes that go nowhere near where they should.
Jets vs. Colts: The Jets have a nice line but a bad secondary. The Colts have a horrid offensive line. The Jets should get some sacks and maybe some of the pressure forces the Colts into a few turnovers.
