Week 15 Waiver Wire Targets

It’s Week 15 and if you’re reading this, then you’ve likely made it into the second round of your season long fantasy league playoffs. Or, your league has a weird schedule. Or, you’re looking for daily fantasy tidbits. Regardless, it’s time to dig into those waiver wire adds that could bring that championship home. Good luck!

DuJuan Harris (RB, Seattle Seahawks)

Yo, dawg. I heard you like handcuffs, so I hope you had handcuffs for your handcuffs. Lynch is out and now Thomas Rawls is lost for the season with a broken ankle. Next up will be Harris. He and Bryce Brown will be shouldering the load, but Harris should be the better option of the two. On second thought, you better pick them both up. Tis the season.

Brandon Bolden (RB, New England Patriots)

LaGarrette Blount went down in Week 14 and that means once again it’s next man up time for the Patriots. Bolden will see the greatest jump in carries and James White should continue to emerge as a passing down back that will also play the joker role. Both are decent adds, but I’d lean towards Bolden right now. White has PPR upside.

Tim Hightower (RB, New Orleans Saints)

New Orleans pulled the ole switch-a-roo on us in Week 14. Many were expecting C.J. Spiller‘s role to drastically increase after the loss of Mark Ingram. What we really saw was Tim Hightower explode onto the scene. He had a huge 28 carries and showed that he’s going to be the primary workhorse on the ground for the Saints. Spiller retains PPR potential as the more versatile threat.

Denard Robinson (RB, Jacksonville Jaguars)

Rookie T.J. Yeldon could miss time with a knee injury, so that means Robinson will get a chance to step up much like he was asked to do around this time last season. He’s versatile but isn’t going to plow through anyone. He rushed 14 times for 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against a lackluster Colts defense. The matchup in Week 15 is good versus Atlanta’s shoddy run defense.

Tyler Lockett (WR, Seattle Seahawks)

Russell Wilson and the Seattle passing game has been on fire in recent weeks. Doug Baldwin has been putting up ridiculous numbers, but Lockett led the team in yardage in Week 14. With their running back woes, you have to figure they will lean even more heavily on passing the ball. That spells good things for the rookie.

Dorial Green-Beckham (WR, Tennessee Titans)

The rookie’s targets have been up in recent weeks, and it looks like he has potential to heat up down the stretch. He has 8 receptions for 172 yards and a touchdown over the last two weeks. His size gives him an advantage against defenders and if he’s growing into his game with fellow rookie Marcus Mariota, the sky’s the limit. He’s still available in 80% of ESPN leagues.
