Fantasy Football Waiver Wire (Add/Drop) – Week 14

Fantasy Football waiver wire style. Keep up to date on all fantasy news at

(Add recommendations will include players owned in less than 50% of leagues)


Add – Joe Flacco Baltimore Ravens

If you are in need of a quarterback this late in the season you are probably not in the playoffs. Flacco is the only name under 50% that has some relevance after he threw for a ridiculous 381 yards and 4 touchdowns on 47 attempts. However, he should not be picked up or played in your fantasy playoffs unless you are extremely desperate. There are no bye weeks and no notable quarterback injuries. The only argument I can make for picking up and starting Flacco is if you are scared of the Marcus Mariota vs Broncos matchup or the Blake Bortles (are people still starting Bortles) vs Vikings matchup. Even then it will still be difficult to roll with Flacco.

Drop – Blake Bortles Jacksonville Jaguars

Running Backs

Add – Derrick Henry Tennessee Titans

Other Players who deserve an Add
  • Ty Montgomery Green Bay Packers
  • Mike Gillislee Buffalo Bills
  • Jacquizz Rodgers Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Drop – James Starks Green Bay Packers

Wide Receivers

Add – Malcolm Mitchell New England Patriots

There are quite a few wide receivers that you can plug and play on the waiver wire, none greater than Malcolm Mitchell. The injuries to Gronk and Danny Amendola has freed up additional targets in the Patriots offense and the biggest beneficiary is Mitchell. The Patriots fourth round pick has flashed a dynamic upside over the last couple of weeks and will be on the field producing in the final 4 weeks of the regular season. The Patriots are the best team in the NFL at adjusting to whichever circumstance they face and it showed last week playing a predominately three wide receiver set. The injury to Gronk boosts not just Mitchell’s stock, who played 85% of the snaps, but it also boosts Julian Edelman’s and another waiver wire pick up Chris Hogan’s stock. I expect the Patriots offense to keep ticking.

Other Players who deserve an Add
  • Corey Coleman Cleveland Browns
  • Tyler Lockett Seattle Seahawks
  • Dontrelle Inman San Diego Chargers
  • Marqise Lee Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Brandon LaFell Cincinnati Bengals
  • Ted Ginn Jr. Carolina Panthers
  • Chris Hogan New England Patriots

Drop – John Brown Arizona Cardinals

Tight Ends

Add – Ladarius Green Pittsburgh Steelers

Well it took 12 weeks for the Steelers and almost 5 years for Ladarius Green but last weeks 110 yard 1 touchdown game could be the start of a promising career. Green who has been hyped as a fantasy sleeper over the last 3 seasons can produce big numbers down the stretch as his snap count has increased over the last 3 weeks. Ben Roethlisberger needs a reliable receiving threat outside of Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, who better to fill that role than the athletic tight end that creates mismatches on the football field. A tight end 1 upside addition is definitely a move you need to make on your waiver wire this week.

Other Players who deserve an Add
  • Vernon Davis Washington Redskins
  • Dennis Pitta Baltimore Ravens

Drop – Julius Thomas Jacksonville Jaguars
