Week 14 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football by Utter-Fantasy Football Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles
The Bye teams are over. Week 14 of the NFL season had the last two teams off on a “Bye”. We had a couple injuries in Week 13, so there are a few players needed around the league to step for NFL teams ( and for fantasy football owners on the waiver wire.) The following are your Utter-Fantasy Week 14 Waiver Wire recommendations.
Week 14 Byes: No More Byes.
Week 14 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Quarterbacks
BALT QB Joe Flacco ( at NE )- Impressive Week 13, and the Pats 28th vs the pass.
SF QB Colin Kaepernick ( vs NYJ )- “Kaep” could look like Tom Brady vs the atrocious Jet’s defense in Week 14.
CHI QB Matt Barkley ( at DET )- Playing for a resume vs the 31st worst defense..
CLEV QB Robert Griffin III ( vs CINN )- Likely available but not recommended.
Week 14 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Running Backs
TB RBs Jacquizz Rodgers/ Charlie Sims ( vs NO)- I’d pick up Rodgers if I needed a back from Tampa because he’s proved his healthy, Sims has not.
DEN Rb Justin Forsett ( at TENN )- With RB Bibbs injured in Week 13, Forsett could see action as Booker’s back up.
BALT RB Kenneth Dixon ( at NE )- 10 touches in Week 13. Bad match up week 14. Only owned in 46% of Yahoo leagues.
Deep Leagues OAK RB Jaelen Ricard ( at KC)- 16 rushes, past 2 weeks.
Week 14 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Wide Receivers
CAR WR Ted Ginn Jr ( vs SD )- A TD in 3 straight weeks. Ginn poured it on at the end of last season as well. Only owned in 23% of Yahoo leagues.
CINN WR Tyler Boyd ( at CLEV )- Only owned in 53% of Yahoo leagues.
SD WR Dontrelle Inman ( at CAR)- WR T Benjamin’s drops means more for Inman. Nice game Week 13. Panthers secondary is weak. Only owned in 21% of Yahoo leagues.
KC WR Jeremy Maclin ( vs OAK)- Due back Thursday for this big division game.
ATL WR Taylor Gabriel ( at LAR )- WR Julio Jones has turf toe.
NE WR Malcolm Mitchell ( vs BALT )- Ravens #1 vs the run. Brady will have to throw.
CINN WR Brandon LaFell ( at CLEV )- Big Week 13 for LaFell with a TD reception.
Week 14 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Tight Ends
TB TE Cameron Brate ( vs NO)- Oh what a sweet match up!
PITT TE Ladarius Green ( at BUFF)- Huge Week 13, and no other wide outs have worked out for the Steelers, so Green may be the answer.
WASH TE Vernon Davis ( at PHIL )- QB K Cousins will need TE Davis in Week 14 with WR Crowder suffering a hip pointer in Week 13 against the Cardinals.
SF TE Vance McDonald ( vs NYJ )- I have recommended TE McDonald for weeks and vs the Jets, his best game might come in Week 14. ( you saw what IND TE Allen did against the Jets)
IND TE D Allen ( vs HOU)- Don’t expect such a great week vs the Texan’s 4th best team guarding opposing tight ends.
