Jared Goff, owned in 23% of Yahoo leagues
So what if he’s going up against the Seahawks? They haven’t been the beacon of consistency on defense. Goff has outperformed his projections in three of four weeks and deserves the respect.
Brian Hoyer, owned in 8% of Yahoo leagues
Admittedly, Hoyer is a boom or bust candidate but so are you if you’re looking for this waiver advice. Hoyer is up against one of the worst rosters in the NFL, the Colts. They give up the eighth-most points to quarterbacks and that seems too nice for how bad they are.
J.D. McKissic, owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues
The Seahawks are trying everything at running back and J.D. turned into TD on Sunday. He’s a target in the short passing game as well and scored 18.5 points this past week, give him a shot.
Jermaine Kearse, owned in 39% of Yahoo leagues
Mike Wallace, owned in 33% of Yahoo leagues
He’s Joe Flacco’s most targeted receiver, last week he caught six of ten for 55 yards and a score. The Raiders have not been able to contain receivers and he may be a good play this week.
Cameron Brate, owned in 50% of Yahoo leagues
Going up against the Patriots, who give up the second-most points to tight ends, he’s got a big shot. He already killed the New York Giants for four receptions, 80 yards, and a touchdown. Go grab him before someone else does.
Richard Rodgers, owned in 0% of Yahoo leagues
So the Cowboys aren’t letting tight ends get it done thus far, that changes this week. Aaron Rodgers loves Richard Rodgers and with some injuries on the Green Bay offense, he’ll need someone out there to beat one-on-ones. Aaron is going to torch the Cowboys secondary somehow, Rodgers is a candidate for a big game.
Buffalo Bills, owned in 13% of Yahoo leagues
The Bengals are giving up the fourth-most points to defenses, the Bills could make it tough on the “Red Rifle”.
San Francisco 49ers, owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues
They’re up against the Colts who give up the most points to opposing defenses. The 49ers will get some opportunities for sacks and turnovers.
Greg Zuerlein, owned in 40% of Yahoo leagues
He crushed the Cowboys a week ago with seven field goals made. This week, he’s against the Seahawks, who give up the fourth-most points to kickers.
