FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE:
NOT DUJUAN YET (WEEK 15)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Fitzmagic had more Fantasy Points than Big Ben, Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady in Week 14. If you used him, along with Randy Bullock like I suggested in the TEAM BEAST DOME article. You are advancing to the next round.
Before we get excited about Matt Stafford and his matchup against the Saints on Monday Night Football. First let us go over the few players that must be added in all leagues. Tim Hightower should have been added in all leagues last week when the news of Mark Ingram broke of him being placed on the I.R. When the Saints announced Sunday morning that CJ Spiller has no future with the Saints, he became a Top 20 RB.
So besides Tim Hightower, here are the players to add in Fantasy Football for Week 15.
UPDATED RB WAIVER WIRE ORDER
DENARD ROBINSON – JAX
TJ Yeldon is very questionable for Sunday, and chances are looking possible that he sits in a big home game against the Falcons to be 100%. If this becomes true, Denard Robinson could be a low-end RB#1 in all leagues with 100+ Total Yards and a TD. He catches the ball, he runs with solid power. He would easily be a better play than DuJuan Harris in all leagues. Yeldon has been battling groin issues for the past few weeks, now you can add a knee sprain.
DUJUAN HARRIS – SEA
While the Seahawks did bring in the electric Bryce Brown, you have to imagine that DuJuan Harris is going to be the lead back for the Seahawks who have so far refused to give the ball to Fred Jackson 10+ Times a game. It would be interesting to see what Fred Jackson could do given the opportunity, he proved he had plenty left in the tank last season. It is unlikely a player who has not played for a team will get many carries in his first game like Bryce Brown. But if DuJuan wets the bed, aka Fumbles the Football, Bryce could take advantage. DuJuan will be a RB#2 against the Browns.
*UPDATE. HARRIS WAIVED. BRYCE BROWN NAMED STARTER*
Bryce Brown is a risky RB#2 this week with upside to turn into a RB#1 if he gets comfortable in Seahawks offense. Fred Jackson is still in picture, but Fred is only being used as a change of pace RB. Add Bryce Brown over Denard Robinson in all leagues. Add Bolden over Bryce Brown.
BRANDON BOLDEN – NE
LeGarrette Blount may be out on Sunday, and if that is the case Brandon Bolden could see 18+ Touches as the Patriots should have no problem dominating the Titans from the 1st Quarter through the entire game. When it comes time to burn the clock and run the ball, Bolden will get the call over James White. If Blount is OUT, Bolden becomes a High-End RB#2.
*Update LeGarrette Blount out for the season. Add Bolden in all leagues as the #1 WW move*
JAMES WHITE – NE
With LeGarrette Blount suffering a hip injury. The New England Patriots have more reason to use the next coming of Dion Lewis in James White. While his rushing attempts have been nothing to brag about, he is a BEAST in PPR leagues and should definitely make a dent on Sunday. If Blount plays, White is a low-end RB#3. If Blount is out, you have a solid RB#2.
*Update LeGarrette Blount out for the season. Add White in all PPR Leagues*
*FOZZY WHITTAKER – CAR*
The * symbolize that he was just added this morning with the news that Jonathan Stewart is in a walking boot. I do expect J-Stew to be fine, but there is definitely a chance he misses Week 15 with a Sprained Foot. Fozzy is a solid RB who would be low-end RB#2 Quality against the Giants. Keep in mind that Mike Tolbert will have a larger role as well. Fozzy is more of a Must-Add for J-Stew owners.
CJ SPILLER – NO
While people may be dropping CJ Spiller after he failed to get going last week. This matchup upcoming against the Lions is a very nice opportunity to scoop him up. The Lions Run D was looking BEASTLY ever since the Bye Week until they let Todd Gurley run all over them in the 2nd Half. They contained Gurley to 13 yards at Halftime. If the Lions D shows up, Tim Hightower may not be the best fit RB for the Saints who could go very pass happy in that game. CJ is still a low-end RB#3 in PPR leagues, but he is worth adding just in case he breaks out in a favorable matchup.
CHRIS POLK – HOU
Polk was getting his touches early and he looked good, but the Texans are not afraid to throw a committee of RB’s in the picture. As long as Jonathan Grimes is getting touches, Polk is nothing more than a RB#4 with RB#3 upside in PPR leagues. Still with everyone having their season on the line, it is best to ignore Polk for now.
TYLER LOCKETT – SEA
Pop. Drop. And Lockett. Tyler has exploded along with Doug Baldwin and Russell Wilson since Jimmy Graham and his season ended. Lockett is too fast for words, and the Seahawks are relying on their passing game to dominate anyone that stands in their path. The Seahawks should continue to soar the rest of the season through the air, which makes Tyler Lockett officially a WR#3 with WR#2 upside.
MARQUES COLSTON – NO
Are you desperate for a WR? Grab Marques the BEAST who turned back the clock with a 2 TD game. Despite both TD’s being Goal Line plays, Colston still has enough left in the tank where he should be a factor against a collapsing Lions Defense who should be on their heels all game against Drew Brees. Colston will be a WR#3 with WR#2 upside heading into this matchup.
SAINTS – NO
All of us including myself is expecting a Hall-Of-Fame performance from Matt Stafford on Monday Night Football in New Orleans. One of the big reasons why I had everyone draft Matt Stafford was because of this vital Playoff Game to get you into the Championship as being basically a shoe-in. Just make sure you play Prater as well.
While Fantasy Defenses do not offer many points as anything in the Double Digits is a Solid Game. It is time to Hedge your Bet and play the Saints Defense. Everytime Stafford gets sacked, you do not have to cringe. Every time Stafford makes a mistake and throws an INT, you do not have to cringe.
If the Saints D/ST scores 0 Points for you this week, then Matt Stafford did enough to lead your team to a victory and the chance to play for the Fantasy Football Championship. You can take that statement to the bank.
This week for us Matt Stafford owners. The Best Fantasy Football Offense, is using the opposing teams Defense.
