Welcome back to the final regular season waiver wire blog. If you are anything like me, you gave up on your fantasy football season a few weeks ago, and are now realizing you have a chance and are hoping with every last ounce of your faith that you pull an upset and get to sit with the big boys… in the fantasy football playoffs.
That is my situation – win and in. I took this week thanks to Christian Watson and Garrett Wilson but will need some more luck to take down the top seeded, 11-1 team to advance to the playoffs.
Anyways, last week I told you to pick up Cam Akers, Brian Robinson, and Zonovan Knight. All hit, but Jelani Woods certainly did not.
Here are a few waiver decisions for Week 14.
- Zonovan Knight, RB | NYJ
Zonovan makes this list yet again. He is the lead back in NYC and I don’t care what Michel Carter has to say about it, albeit he has been injured for the past two weeks. If Carter comes back it might put owners in a tough situation, but Knight is a must-start when given the RB1 declaration.
- Isaiah Pacheco, RB | KC
Pacheco has put in four consecutive weeks with double digit carries and scored in two consecutive weeks. I should have seen this coming, as you knew McKinnon was not going to take over as the lead back in KC – it was always Pacheco’s job to win, especially after the injury to CEH.
- Greg Dulich, TE | DEN
My team is down bad on TEs – I thought Trey McBride was the answer and he was not. Dulcich has put together a solid season on the most depressing offense in football this year after returning from injury. He will NEVER score a touchdown again, but solid targets on seven yard completions is what we need here. We need more than zero points out of our TE. I know there are others like me out there, as the TE position is incredibly top heavy this year.
- Mike White, QB | NYJ
Our Lord and Savoir, Mike White, I ask you to please save me from my putrid fantasy start/sit in weeks 7-12 and deliver us LOTS OF POINTS IN WEEKS 14-17. Anyways, Mike White has been good and Garrett Wilson is now a league-winner. White has a very easy schedule against the Lions, Jacksonville, and the Seahawks after he plays Buffalo next week. Is he the playoff fantasy of your dreams?
- Alex Pierce, WR | IND
Micheal Pittman is not that good. Alex Pierce is a DAWG on contested catches. He really impressed me earlier in the season in the game against Kansas City and has steadily turned into a legit part of the Indy offense. He is an add and stash until Pittman or Campbell take a week off.
