It’s playoff time! Most fantasy leagues have reached their money rounds and hopefully you’re a part of it. A player addition here or there could be crucial to getting that fantasy football ring you’ve always dreamed of (hopefully, along with some cash).
Here are a few players worth picking up off the waiver wire.
Don’t forget to tune in every Sunday at 9:00am for the OFN Fantasy Football show with Jamal, Greg DePalma and Dan Weinreich.
TE Stephen Anderson, Houston Texans…Anderson came out of nowhere to put up a five-catch, 79-yard, one-touchdown performance last week. He was targeted a whopping 12 times, which was four times more than he was targeted in each of his last two games and double his season high.
RB Peyton Barber, Tampa Bay Buccaneers…Barber rushed for 102 yards on 23 carries and caught four passes for 41 yards last week while previous starter Doug Martin sat out with a concussion. That performance likely guarantees at least a split of duties with Martin if he returns.
TE Cameron Brate, Tampa Bay Buccaneers…With Jameis Winston back in action, Brate had his best game in four weeks, making the most of his two receptions with two touchdowns. Likely due to Winston’s absence, Brate is currently owned in only 55% of leagues.
RB Mike Davis, Seattle Seahawks…Davis is now clearly the man in Seattle’s backfield. He rushed for 64 yards on 16 carries, while adding four receptions for 37 yards.
RB Matt Forte, New York Jets…Forte is basically splitting carries with Bilal Powell and often producing better results. Last week, Forte tallied 58 yards on 15 carries and 33 yards and a touchdown on three catches.
WR Marquise Goodwin, San Francisco 49ers…With Jimmy Garoppolo under center, Goodwin had one of his better games last week, catching eight passes for 99 yards. That’s a good sign, considering Goodwin was productive even before Garoppolo’s arrival.
