Waiver Wire Week 15

I keep adjusting this because ownership percentages are so whacky this time of the year. I am no longer using any sort of cutoff for ownership percentage. Instead I am doing players that I feel as though have a good chance to be on waiver wires in 10 and 12 team leagues.

At this point make sure your last couple bench spots are handcuffs, getting a week ahead on nice matchups. If you aren’t going to be starting someone in week 15 and likely won’t in week 16, they really don’t deserve a spot on your roster.

As usual, feel free to ask any questions and I will try to help you figure out the best course of action. You can also reach me on twitter –

Marquise Goodwin – has been on a pretty nice roll since week seven. Goodwin should be a solid flex for any team these last couple weeks.

Peyton Barber – After Martin started, he eventually fumbled and was benched. Barber has put up the best numbers for the Bucs this year. If he gets the chance he again could be a viable flex.

Theo Riddick – If Abdullah misses again he is a borderline RB2.

Mike Davis – He is the back in the offense you want.

Johnathan Stewart – Had a huge game, but are you really going to start him in your semifinal?

Randall Cobb – Aaron Rodgers is expected to return. I wouldn’t start him but I would be opposed to it in week 16 if I was desperate.

Tyrell Williams – The Chargers are on a roll right now and that includes the passing game. Williams isn’t a must start but like many others on this list is flex worthy.

Dede Westbrook – I don’t think I could ever trust what is basically the third option for the Jaguars.

Will Fuller – He was on fire with Watson. I don’t know how that translates now, but I wouldn’t get too excited.

Rod Smith – I don’t think I could have any confidence starting him next week, and after that he is irrelevant.

Quarterback Streamers

Aaron Rodgers – Not really a streamer, but just in case people have been sleeping on him and he isn’t owned.

Case Keenum – The Bengals are hurting on defense and we are now at the point in the season where you see teams that are out of it just fall apart completely. The Vikings should roll.

Jimmy Garoppolo – He has played well so far this season and the Titans have been a nice matchup for quarterbacks.

Blake Bortles – I couldn’t rely on him but he gets the Texans so there is that.

Marcus Mariota – He seems lost right now but if you are digging this deep odds are you have another option or you are eliminated.

Defense streamers

Saints – The Jets will start Petty probably so the Saints at home should be a top streaming option.

Broncos – In Indy but it doesn’t matter. I don’t think they should really be on the waiver wire regardless of how they have played lately.

Bills – Jay Cutler is almost always a nice quarterback to target. The Dolphins have had 11 turnovers in the past three games and allowed 10 sacks.

Lions – They get to host the Bears. The Bears haven’t been great for streaming against, but the Lions defense is worth a start if the first three options are owned.

Dolphins – If Tyrod Taylor doesn’t start the Dolphins are a really nice play. If he does start he might be limited in what he can do mobility wise.
