Week 14 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: D’Onta Foreman & Rashaad Penny

on

Week 14 brings the final week with teams on a bye. The Colts, Patriots, Eagles and Dolphins will all have the week off, so fantasy managers might be searching for some replacements, especially at the running back position. Here are some players to consider adding who are still available in the majority of leagues. You can also use our Waiver Wire Pickups tool to help find viable options and determine how much of your FAAB you might need to use for each player.

Fantasy Football: Week 14 NFL Waiver Wire Pickups

D’Onta Foreman, Tennessee Titans (66% available)

The Titans had a bye in Week 13, which they desperately needed. They have been hammered by injuries, so a week off to regroup could help. The problem is none of their top injured players are expected back yet. With Derrick Henry (foot) out again, that means Foreman should remain one of their top running back options. He thrived in their last game against the Patriots, rushing 19 times for 109 yards. Add in a favorable matchup against the Jaguars this week, and Foreman should be a hot option off the waiver wire.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 1 (10%-12% of FAAB budget)

Dontrell Hilliard, Tennessee Titans (64% available)

The Titans operate a run-heavy offense, and factoring in their injuries at wide receiver, it is not a big surprise that Hilliard was also busy in Week 12. He recorded 12 carries against the Patriots, finishing with 131 yards and a touchdown. With the high probability for another game with at least 10 carries, he could be in line for a productive afternoon, especially considering that the Jaguars have allowed the fifth-most touchdowns rushing (15) in the league.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 2 (10%-12% of FAAB budget)

Rashaad Penny, Seattle Seahawks (92% available)

With their offense struggling, the Seahawks decided to make some changes at running back. They brought in Adrian Peterson and made Alex Collins inactive for their matchup against the 49ers. Peterson found his way into the end zone, but he only turned 11 carries into 16 yards. Penny was also more involved, turning 10 carries into 35 yards while catching his only target for 27 yards. Expect him to split carries with Peterson, but a Week 14 matchup against a Texans team that has allowed the most yards rushing per game in the league could work in his favor.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 3 (5%-10% of FAAB budget)

Russell Gage, Atlanta Falcons (75% available)

Gage made this column last week and did not disappoint, catching 11 passes for 130 yards against the Buccaneers. He received 12 targets in that matchup, marking the fourth time over the last five games that he has seen at least seven passes thrown his way. He caught at least five passes in all four of those games and recorded at least 62 yards receiving three times. As long as Calvin Ridley (personal) is out, Gage should remain in an expanded role.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 4 (1%-3% of FAAB budget)

Josh Reynolds, Detroit Lions (97% available)

The Lions finally earned their first win of the season last week, knocking off the Vikings in the final seconds. They scored 29 points, which is only the second time all season that they scored at least 20 points in a game. Reynolds was a key contributor in the win, catching four passes for 69 yards. Over the last two games, he has seven receptions on 12 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown. Expect him to remain one of their top wide receivers down the stretch.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 5 (1% of FAAB budget)

Jamison Crowder, New York Jets (75% available)

Corey Davis has missed three games for the Jets this season and could be on the shelf again after leaving Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a groin injury. Over the three previous games that Davis missed, Crowder received a total of 17 targets, which he turned into 14 catches for 127 yards. With Davis going down last week, he caught four of six targets for 62 yards. If Davis were to miss time again, Crowder would be a viable WR3 option in PPR leagues.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 6 (1% of FAAB budget)

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Tennessee Titans (97% available)

It is slim pickings for the Titans at wide receiver with A.J. Brown (chest) and Julio Jones (hamstring) both on IR. Westbrook has 14 targets over the last two games, catching nine of them for 132 yards and a touchdown. With the expectation that the Titans will not have a hard time moving the ball against the Jaguars porous defense, Westbrook-Ikhine is a viable waiver option for deep leagues.

Week 14 Waiver Wire Priority: 7 (1% of FAAB budget)
