Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 17: Streamers, James Cook, Jahan Dotson and future stashes

Funviralpark 1 year ago 0 3

The week of the Fantasy Football Championship is upon us, so it’s time to take home the glory with our Week 17 waiver. Week 18 he has a few potential flyers for teams that might rest in Week 18 if he wants to play as a one-off (or is insane enough to be part of the playoffs).

Heads up

  • Players must be less than 60% registered on Yahoo
  • listing priority — I often prioritize potential upside over short-term mediocre production
  • No FAB suggestions: Varies a lot depending on league trends, always relative (e.g. if you lose RB1 to injury and you have a clear backup, you’ll be more aggressive).
  • Streaming QB and TE are grouped— Rankings may change slightly when prediction/ranking is performed, DST may also shift a bit

waiver wire running back rank

  1. Tyler Allgaier, ATL — Despite a late start to his career and a few dips, Allgeier still has a 9.8 FPPG when given at least 10 carries.
  2. Zach Moss, IND — An unsubstantiated report alleged that Deon Jackson had an argument with Jeff Saturday, but even if it wasn’t true, Saturday said Jackson I didn’t want to use too much.
  3. Gus Edwards, BAL — Weekly RB3 in the top 15 upsides if he scores.
  4. Chuva Hubbard, CAR — No one knows what the Panthers plan will be in terms of workload, but Hubbard will always be involved and either 1) he will lead or 2) if the Panthers run more than 30 times, RB3 will We know it brings more benefits.
  5. James Cook, BUF — A lower bound near zero, but a possible top 20.
  6. Hassan Haskins, TEN … Titans and Jaguars Situation — The Jaguars played their first matchup, but neither team can clinch or be eliminated this week as the Titans have a better conference record. So week 18 is winner takes all. Derrick Henry “wouldn’t have practiced” on Monday, but it would be hard to trust the Haskins to the championship (or the likes of Jamaican Hasty or Snoop Conner) if either/both starters were off. Plus, if the Dolphins and others lose, there’s a slim chance the Jaguars will squeak as a wild card. That’s insane.
  7. Deejay Dallas, SEA — Dallas could be RB3 at half/full PPR if the Seahawks’ choice in the passing game and the Jets are unlikely to take an early lead.
  8. Lois Freeman, HOU — if you want a floor, Freeman has it.

Week 18 Exchange Potential

  • Alexander Mattison, MIN — Locked in division, but no 1st seed potential (if Eagles lose and Eagles win). Dalvin Cook and the rest of the team take time off to prepare for the playoffs.
  • Khalil Herbert, CHI — The Bears have nothing to play and David Montgomery is a free agent.
  • Samaje Perrine, CIN — The Bengals could be locked into the division title, but no chance of a bye. That means Joe Mixon could get a Week 18 rest.
  • Joshua Kelly, LAC — The Charger is locked in a wildcard spot and may rest in Week 18.
  • jordan mason, science fiction — If the Eagles clinch, the 49ers already have the West locked down, possibly limiting Christian McCaffrey (Mason got banged in Week 16, giving away part to Tyrion Davis-Pryce).
  • Kenyan Drake, BAL — JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards can rest the final week if they lose and the Bengals win.
  • Jaylen Warren, PIT — With nothing to play, Nagy Harris was able to get an early start to his offseason rest.
  • Durnest Johnson, CLE Like Kareem Hunt (free agency), Nick Chubb’s job may be limited.
  • Justin Jackson, DET — The Lions have been eliminated, and given his injury history, including this year, they may choose to sit Dundle Swift.
  • Ronald Jones, Kentucky — The Bills could secure the No. 1 seed and the Chiefs could decide to play a quarter or similar starter in Week 18.
  • Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell, PHI — can get the No. 1 seed and put Miles Sanders and many others to rest. Scott has had more work in the early downs and short yards in the past.
  • Zamir White, LV — Josh Jacobs is a free agent, so the Raiders may assess White as a potential new lead.
  • Salvon Ahmed, MIA — can be clinched, can be locked in wildcard spots, and could put Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert at risk if he rests from injury.
  • Gary Brightwell, NYG — potentially resting starters, including Saquon Barkley, by winning and earning a spot.


  1. Brandin Cooks, HOU — It’s a bit of a surprise to see Cooks return this year, but he’s back and the number one choice, going up against the Jaguars.
  2. Drake London, ATL — Desmond Ridder knows one thing in the passing game. Throw it in London.
  3. Romeo Dubs, England — Dub is here if Christian Watson doesn’t come out, as the Packers maintain their playoff hopes and take on the Vikings.
  4. Jahan Dotson, WSH — it would be better if Taylor Heinicke was the quarterback, given the rapport they’ve developed recently, but even if it was Carson Wentz, I’m not sure how Dotson would still be available.
  5. Isiah Hodgins, NYG — Hodgins and Richie James had something to say in Plus last month, and the former Bills receiver appears to be a favorite of Red Zone’s Brian Dabor and Daniel Jones. has at least four receptions for the NBA, and has scored a touchdown of at least 11.8 points in three of those games.
  6. Richie James, NYG — James has 12.3, 12.6, 3.5, 15.6, 6.2, 13.0 since the Giants’ bye.
  7. Greg Dorch, ARI — No, we’re not predicting double-digit targets every week, but Dorch rounds out the receiving trio of DeAndre Hopkins and Marquis Brown, and the Falcons are a great matchup…especially for slot receivers.
  8. DJ Chark, DET — Jameson Williams looks set to play in 2023. The good news: Jared Goff is feeling better outside and the Lions are back home this week.
  9. Kendrick Bourne, Nebraska — a major boom/bust play, but Week 16 shows the uptick many thought Bourne could have this year.
  10. Hunter Renflow LV — Renfrow returning to the mix even more for the second game is volume WR4.
  11. Russell Gage, tuberculosis — Week 15 marked the upper end of Gage and Week 16 was a more realistic output, but the upside potential is worth betting on.
  12. Rashid Shaheed, NO — The weather doesn’t seem to be much of a concern this week, but the Saints’ “no. 1” option has an Eagles defense.
  13. DeMarcus Robinson, BAL — Robinson is a solid WR4 if Lamar Jackson is back, otherwise he’s a boom/bust WR4/5.
  14. Chris Moore, HOU — Cooks is back and plaguing Moore, but he’s the clear number two. As mentioned, it’s a great matchup.
  15. Tralon Burks, TEN — Burks is a touchdown prayer against the Cowboys, as rolling the dice with Malik Willis in the Titans’ wideout will likely be difficult but necessary to keep up.

Potential Keeper/Dynasty Stash

This is the case in the Keeper League, as good players rarely linger on waivers in Dynasty. Nonetheless, it’s worth throwing out a few names with potential value for 2023 and beyond.Free agency can drive up value, so this list has some potential value during the offseason. Emphasize your purchase.


  1. Desmond Ridder, ATL — The Falcons could give him a chance and miss the top two quarterbacks (Bryce Young, CJ Stroud).
  2. Gardner Minshew, PHI — could enter the first gig of 2023.
  3. Malik Willis, TEN — Similar to the Falcons, but Ryan Tannehill’s deal is a little more expensive ($27 million, with a 2023 deadcap of $18.8 million), which could see Tannehill start again.
  4. Sam Howell, WSH — I know I like Taylor Heinicke, but they don’t seem into him or Carson Wentz. Howell could get a shot at winning the job.
  5. Jordan Love, UK — Aaron Rodgers is a constant retirement threat.

running back

  1. Khalil Herbert, CHI — David Montgomery is a free agent and Herbert shows RB1 dominance.
  2. James Cook, BUF — Devin Singletary was a free agent and Bills was able to walk him.
  3. Alexander Mattison, MIN — could be one of the “sleeper” signings after big names like Saquon Barkley and Jacobs, and if Mattison has a lead job, the RB2 value should be his floor.
  4. Zamir White, LV — Josh Jacobs is a free agent.
  5. Samaje Perrine, CIN — Like Mattison, the team liked what they saw when Perine led it, so they could get a discount deal.
  6. Chuva Hubbard, CAR — Donta Foreman is a free agent and the Panthers could bring in a complementary piece…or someone like Foreman will haunt us again.
  7. Jerome Ford, CLE — Kareem Hunt and Durnest Johnson will become free agents, allowing the Browns to give Ford a backup job.
  8. Killen Williams, LAR — Cam Akers looks good (too late), but who knows what Sean McVay will decide in 2023.
  9. Kevin Harris, Nebraska — Damien Harris is a free agent.
  10. Hassan Haskins, TEN — Like Derrick Henry, the risk of injury increases by the season (weeks?).

wide receiver

  1. Romeo Dubs, England — Allen Lazard is a free agent (as is Randall Cobb) and will make Christian Watson and Dubs the Packers’ top two receivers in 2023.
  2. Calvin Ridley, JAX — after a long layoff, we might toast, but given his ability and the rise of Jaguar/Trevor Lawrence, it’s still a top 25 possibility.
  3. Alec Pearce, Indiana — Paris Campbell exits rookie deal, but Colts need quarterback.
  4. Onedale Robinson, New York — Brian Daboll loved the talent and finding ways to get him the ball.
  5. Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore, Kentucky — JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman may not return in FA.
  6. Taycan Thornton, Nebraska — Jacobi Myers and Nelson Agholor were free agents and Thornton was blooming from the draft (and hurting at first).
  7. Khalil Shakir, BUF — Flashed earlier this year and passed Isaiah McKenzie again in Week 16. Shakir has a half/full PPR value when Shakir is a lock-in slot option.
  8. Terrace Marshall, CAR — Marshall showed why he could be the team’s number two receiver this year if the Panthers find a new quarterback.
  9. John Mechee, HOU — rooting for Metsy as he missed his rookie season with leukemia. can be set up (and yet another additional possibility).
  10. David Bell, CLE — Behind Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones, Bell has the talent to push the Democrats into a second role.

tight end

  1. Greg Dulcich, DEN “I’ve already seen his potential.
  2. Trey McBride, ARI — Zak Aerts is not 100% guaranteed to be himself and is struggling to hold back one of the best tight end talents of 2022 in the draft. vying for the highest ceiling in the
  3. Daniel Bellinger, NYG — looks like the Giants’ answer on tight ends, with Davor’s similar options like Dawson Knox at Buffalo.
  4. Jelani Woods, Indiana — Athletic matchup issues. Woods is the new quarterback and could be one of the best breakouts of 2023.
  5. Cade Otton, TB — Inconsistently, there were plenty of glimpses of hope that 2023 could be a top 15 year.
