Shane decided that going on an anniversary with his wife was more important than football, fantasy football, and writing a waiver wire piece, I agree with him. Congratulations to you and your lovely bride young man.
It’s been a few minutes since I’ve written a waiver piece, so, this will probably be awesome!
Case Keenum (Min) @ Cle (in London) - 10.9%
Case Keenum is a butt of a few jokes, but he is a gunslinger. This is likely his last start for the Vikings this season, so expect him to show off the goods. It doesn’t hurt that he’s playing against the Browns.
Andy Dalton (Cin) v Ind - 32.9%
Yes, Andy threw a ball away when it was 4th down. He wasn’t playing against the atrocious Colts team though. Malik Hooker, who was looking like a potential DROY, is out, so a bad defense just got worse. Andy Dalton plays well and there’s no AJ McCarron talk for one more week.
Tyrod Taylor (Buf) v Oak - 59.3%
No Streaming segment would be complete without Taylor being on it. Playing against Oakland this week makes for another great matchup.
Rob Kelley (Was) v Dal - 59.4%
Kelley is the starting back in Washington when healthy. He hasn’t been healthy for the past few weeks, but expect him to play and play well against Dallas. He’s not only a good play for this week, but a good guy to have on your roster for the rest of the year.
Matt Forte (NYJ) v Atl - 49.9%
Forte is the best RB in the Jets backfield, when healthy, and when they decide to give him the ball. Forte took some injury time off, so he is fresher than usual at this time of the year. Atlanta has some problems, Jets will stay competitive, so Forte will stay involved.
Alex Collins (Bal) v Mia (TNF) - 32.5%
Typically, TNF are running back games. This year is doing it’s best to buck that trend. With that said, I believe this will be a running game, and Collins and Ajayi will be the stars of the game.
Tyrell Williams (LAC) @ NE - 54.9%
The Patriots have seemed to somewhat fix the defense. With that said, Rivers isn’t afraid. Expect a lot of offense in this game. Williams should be able to get loose for a big play or two
Josh Doctson (Was) v Dal - 13.3%
Doctson looks like he’s the best big play wide out in Washington. Former first round pick, and touted as the best WR coming out of that draft. Pryor hasn’t been good, it’s time for Doctson to become the man.
Bennie Fowler (Den) @ KC - 10.2%
DT should be showed by Marcus Peters, we saw last week what the WR on the other side does to KC. Fowler is low end, but could pay off HUGE.
Austin Hooper (Atl) @ NYJ - 48.6%
Hooper is due for a big game. It doesn’t hurt that this week his opponent is the Jets.
George Kittle (SF) @ Phi - 13.8%
Kittle went to school with CJ Beathard. Pretty easy to say, safety blanket. Philly is going to get after the 9ers, so except a lot of dump offs to Kittle
Tyler Kroft (Cin) v Ind - 10.8%
If Andy is going to have big week, multiple pass catchers will also. Kroft should be one of them
New Orleans Saints v Chi - 49%
The Saints are good...the Bears are not
Cincinnati Bengals v Ind - 35.6%
Burfict wasn’t suspended, Andrew Luck isn’t coming through the doors anytime soon for the Colts.
Miami Dolphins @ Bal - 35.1%
TNF usually is good for running games and defenses. It’ll happen this week.
Teddy Bridgewater (Min) - 1.9% - Two QB must at this point
Marlon Mack (Ind) - 26.5% - Lost season, might as well make Mack matter.
Dion Lewis (NE) - 20.4% - NE is seeing that he's the best back in NE
Cooper Kupp (LAR) - 40.7% - He’s Goff’s guy
Corey Davis (Ten) - 23.3% - He’ll be a top 30 WR from here out.
Everyone on this list is 60% owned or below. I hope that you’ve been able to withstand all of these injuries. Sometimes it’s hard to watch.
