Welp, it’s crunch time. Many leagues have reached the semifinal rounds, while other smaller leagues are just entering their playoffs. 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.
RB Tarik Cohen, Chicago Bears…Cohen has been gracing a few waiver wires since his hot start subsided, somewhere around the middle of the season. He is still capable of big things, however, evidenced by his 12-carry, 80-yard performance at Cincinnati on Sunday.
WR Corey Coleman, Cleveland Browns…The presence of Josh Gordon may be opening things up for Coleman. He had a productive Week 14, catching five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown against Green Bay.
QB Jay Cutler, Miami Dolphins…If you’re still alive in the playoffs and have QB issues, old (un)reliable Cutler is available and seemingly hot after throwing for 263 yards and three touchdowns versus New England last night.
RB Wayne Gallman, New York Giants…Whether due to the Giants’ coaching change or Orleans Darkwa’s health, the young Gallman received an increased workload and made the most of it on Sunday. He rushed for 59 yards on 12 carries and caught seven balls for an additional 40 yards.
QB Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers…For those who lost Carson Wentz over the weekend, Garoppolo is your best bet. He threw for 334 yards to go along with a touchdown and an interception in a win at Houston on Sunday.
TE Jesse James, Pittsburgh Steelers…James and Big Ben connected well Sunday night, with James catching ten passes for 97 yards vs. Baltimore.
RB Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers…It took awhile for Stewart to produce, but his 103-yard, three-touchdown performance on Sunday showed he could be valuable over the next couple weeks.
RB Kerwynn Williams, Arizona Cardinals…With Adrian Peterson out, Williams has been getting touches and yards. He followed up a 16-carry, 97-yard showing with a 20-carry, 73-yard game versus Tennessee on Sunday.
WR Albert Wilson, Kansas City Chiefs…Wilson caught five passes from Alex Smith for 72 yards on Sunday and is averaging over six targets in his last three games.
