Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups
By Michael Visconti December 12th, 2016
Hopefully you had LeVeon Bell going this weekend, but if you did not hopefully you did not play against him. I am not sure what happened this weekend, but it seemed to be one of the lowest scoring weeks overall for season long leagues but a high scoring DFS week. Interesting.
This is actually a decent waiver wire week if you need to find a starter for week 15. Below are a few of our favorites.
At this stage of the year rather than suggesting a rest of the way Quarterback pickup we will be offering our best streamers in order of our weekly standard rankings. Here are the stream options for Week 15:
Trevor Semien vs NE
Alex Smith vs TEN
Andy Dalton vs PIT
Kenneth Farrow SD – Melvin Gordon left Sunday’s game killing a lot of fantasy seasons with an injured hip. Farrow played after offensive snap in his absence and did OK. There has been talk of a Ronnie Hillman time share, but he’s not very good. I’ll take Farrow.
Justin Forsett DEN – Straight off the street Justin lands a starting gig. Kind of. He led the way in Denver and as Booker is on the decline look for Forsett to be involved over the next couple of weeks.
Ty Montgomery GB – Mike McCarthy declared Ty a running back today. He looked pretty good on Sunday against the Seahawks and he has a decent flex matchup this upcoming week against the Bears.
Kenjon Barner PHI – Well, here we go again. Smallwood is on the IR and Sproles is in the concussion protocol with Mathews fresh back from injury. Barner will see an increased workload this week against the Ravens should Sproles miss the game.
Bilal Powell NYJ – Powell is likely taken in most of your leagues but with the uncertainty on the severity of Matt Forte who is dealing with a knee injury Powell would be a great pickup for a Week 15 start.
Kenneth Dixon BAL – Dixon ran really strong on MNF against the NE Patriots. He really looks to be like a really talent in this backfield. Look for him to have 1 big game before the end of the year solidifying himself as the lead back in Baltimore. It might come this week versus the Eagles.
Watch List – Dwayne Washington DET, Rex Burkhead CIN, Shaun Draughn SF, Charles Sims TB
Pierre Garcon WAS – Pierre has been showing up in this offense as of late and I love his Monday Night Football matchup this week. Start your Redskins!
Ted Ginn Jr. CAR – You could do worse if you are in a long TD league and need a flex play. I like him in a MNF shootout this week against the Redskins.
Malcolm Mitchell NE – Mitchell scored again on Monday night. He is quickly becoming a mainstay in the Patriots offense. He might be the fantasy rookie Wide Receiver of the year when it is all said and done.
Robby Anderson NYJ – Robby and Petty have a 3rd string thing going on. Anderson had 6 catches for 99 yards and continues to be the favorite target of the rookie Petty. He has a decent matchup this week against the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football and should see the most targets on the Jets offense.
Watch List – Dontrelle Inman SD, Paul Turner PHI
Jermaine Gresham STL – Turns out Big Gresh is one of the biggest targets in this hugely disappointing offense. Still one more 5 catch performance has him looking like a low end TE1 for Week 15.
Watch List – Garrett Celek SF, Gary Barnidge CLE, Jack Doyle IND
