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


Waiver WireAdd – Josh McCown New York Jets

A popular pickup a couple of weeks ago is back in the fold as Josh McCown is playing next level quarterback play. If you started him for your playoff push, then you’ve probably clinched due to his 6 touchdowns and 638 yards against the Panthers and Chiefs over the last two weeks. McCown has exceeded all expectations for the Jets who’ve already won more games than they did all of last season and more than likely saved head coach Todd Bowles job for another year. With the departure of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker in the off-season and the injury to Quincy Enunwa, the Jets came into the year without their top 3 receivers. However, McCown’s quarterback play has catapulted receivers Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse to career years. If you’re in the fantasy playoffs and want to ride the hot hand of McCown, you can probably roll with him another week against the unrecognizable Broncos defense that just gave up 35 points to Jay Cutler and the Miami Dolphins.

Running Backs

Add – Mike Davis Seattle Seahawks 

The former San Francisco 49er Mike Davis has found a new home in Seattle. Likewise, the Seahawks who’ve rotated running backs all season long appear to have found their guy to hand the ball off too in December/January. Don’t make any mistakes about it, this is still Russell Wilson’s team and he will handle the ball for the majority of snaps whether it’s passing or running the football but Davis should be rostered as he will get 15 carries with the potential to score a TD each week. Davis is a decisive runner that can hit the hole and make a guy miss in the open field. This is something that Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls are unable to do at this point in their careers. Davis should be the top running back add this week and be a potential flex play for your team.

Wide Receivers

Waiver WireAdd – Jermaine Kearse New York Jets

Let’s get another Jets player highlighted in this week’s fantasy waiver wire post. I mentioned Jermaine Kearse above as he is reaping the benefits of the improved play of Josh McCown. The Jets made a move for Kearse at the beginning of the season after dealing with injuries at the position. After a strong start to the season, Kearse cooled down and it was the Robby Anderson show for the majority of the season. Well over the last 2 weeks they’ve both put on a show with Kearse catching 16 balls for 262 yards and a touchdown. Kearse is putting up numbers in the short, intermediate and deep game which makes him a nightmare cover for defensive backs. The playoff schedule is a little tough (Broncos, Saints, Chargers) however the Jets could be in shootouts which gives Kearse a good shot of putting up more 100 yard receiving games.

Add – Ricky Seals-Jones Arizona Cardinals 

Ricky Seals-Jones is here to stay folks. Some may have thought his numbers have been something of a fluke and he will go back into oblivion for the Arizona Cardinals. Although he didn’t have the same success against a tough Rams defense that he had the previous 2 weeks, he still received 5 targets and gained 44 yards. Seals-Jones’ playoff schedule is pretty nice as he plays against the Titans who’ve struggled against the pass and the Redskins and Giants that have given up big numbers to opposing tight ends all season long. Seals-Jones is a sneaky play that can win you a fantasy championship.
