Fantasy Football: Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

From Adam Ronis, here is his Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups article with player recommendations to keep your Fantasy Football teams strong!

QB Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

It’s highly unlikely anyone is streaming for Week 15 in the Fantasy Football playoffs. If you have made it this far and continue to do so, Allen is in play. Allen has a lot of flaws as a passer, going 18-for-36 for 206 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions against the Jets, but he rushed for 101 yards on nine carries with a touchdown. Allen has rushed for 335 yards the last three weeks, providing a high floor.

RB Elijah McGuire, New York Jets

McGuire returned from the injured reserve in Week 9 and hasn’t played a significant role. He had ten touches, nine, seven and seven before Sunday. Isaiah Crowell left the game with an injury and McGuire became the lead back against the Bills. McGuire had 17 carries for 60 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 23 yards on four targets. McGuire should be the lead back with the Texans and Packers ahead.

RB Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens

Dixon returned from the injured reserve in Week 13 and looked good. He played 17 snaps and rushed for 37 yards on eight carries with an eight-yard catch. Dixon saw more snaps in Week 14 and rushed for 59 yards on eight carries with a touchdown and a 21-yard catch. Gus Edwards had 16 carries for 67 yards and has one target in eight games. Dixon is still running behind Edwards, but the Ravens are often running with Lamar Jackson at quarterback and Dixon’s role could grow.

RB Damien Williams, Kansas City Chiefs

Spencer Ware is the starter and looked better in Week 14. Ware had 20 touches, but Williams had 12 and saw many snaps in the red zone. Williams had eight carries for 14 yards with a touchdown and caught four passes for 16 yards with a touchdown. In an explosive offense, he’s worth a roster spot in case Ware gets hurt.

WR DaeSean Hamilton, Denver Broncos

Hamilton saw an increase in playing time with Emmanuel Sanders out for the season. Hamilton saw a lot of time in the slot and was targeted nine times, catching seven passes for 47 yards with a touchdown. He will continue to see a lot of snaps and could be featured more if Courtland Sutton’s quad injury lingers or the opposition looks to focus on him.

WR Robert Foster, Buffalo Bills

Foster took on a more significant role with the departure of Kelvin Benjamin. Foster had a season-high eight targets and caught seven passes for 104 yards. In the last four games, Foster has 105, 94, 27 and 104 yards. Josh Allen will take shots deep, giving Foster a chance to make plays and the matchup is favorable against the Lions in Week 15.

TE Ian Thomas, Carolina Panthers

Thomas was quiet early in the season when Greg Olsen was out, but he’s more involved in the last two games. Thomas had 11 targets in Week 14 and caught nine passes for 77 yards. Thomas caught all five of his targets for 46 yards after Olsen left the game in Week 13. Thomas gets the Saints and Falcons the next two weeks.
