As we head into the final stretch of the fantasy football regular season, let’s take a look at the waiver wire for some last minute help. Whether you need depth for your playoff appearance or help getting to the postseason, the waiver wire could hold the answer.
Damien Williams (RB - MIA)
When Jay Ajayi was traded to the Eagles, it was unclear who would take over the primary role in Miami. Though it seems Kenyan Drake will get the most carries, Williams will be heavily involved in the passing game. He racked up six receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown along with seven carries for 14 yards against Oakland in Week Nine. He may be merely a flex option right now, but Williams is a decent bet if you need to add some depth or need a streaming option for the next few weeks.
Robert Woods (WR - LAR)
Woods has played well on and off all season, with plenty of receiving talent to go around for the Rams. Last week, he exploded for two touchdowns and 70 yards, marking his first scoring game of the year. He still has to compete for targets with Sammy Watkins and Cooper Kupp, but Woods is a decent pickup on an extremely thin waiver wire.
Marqise Lee (WR - JAX)
Lee has racked up at least 72 yards over his last three games and finally found the end zone against Cincinnati last week. He has a few good matchups left on the schedule this season and could be a solid plug in option if you’re trying to replace an injured player or someone on bye. If Lee can find the end zone a little more regularly, he’d be a great fantasy asset for the postseason as well.
Josh Gordon (WR - CLE)
I’ve been hoping to write about Gordon in my fantasy column for several years now. His return will be huge for Cleveland and could be huge for fantasy owners (despite the lackluster QB talent the Browns have). If Gordon is available in your league, grab him and stash him for the postseason. He is set to return from his suspension in the next few weeks and would easily be the top guy in Cleveland if he can return to his former dominance.
C.J. Fiedorowicz (TE - HOU)
There aren’t a ton of viable tight end options left on the waiver wire, but Fiedorowicz is set to return from his injury this week. He may not start right away. Don’t worry. He’s worth grabbing if you need help at tight end moving forward. Temper your expectations, though - Deshaun Watson is gone for the year and Tom Savage isn’t great at moving the offense along, finding the end zone, being a QB, etc.
