Waiver Hub – Week 15

Happy Tuesday and welcome back to my weekly Waiver HUB! It’s time to hit the waiver wire and do what you can to improve your team moving forward. Mike Hubbard here, you can follow me on Twitter (@FantasyHubbard) for all things fantasy football throughout the season. Feel free to tweet me or message me with any comments or questions you might have regarding fantasy football.

Week 14 has concluded following the MNF game between the Patriots and Cardinals. It was an injury fest with the most fantasy impact leaning on Kyler Murray and Rhamondre Stevenson. Patriots walked away with a win and are closer to the playoffs.

Week 15 kicks off on Thursday with a matchup between the 9-4 San Francisco 49ers and the 7-6 Seattle Seahawks. The game is in Seattle with the 49ers favored by 3.5 and an over/under of 43.5. Possible comeback player of the year Geno Smith looks to extend his multi-TD game streak to 8 consecutive weeks while the last pick in this year’s NFL draft Purdy will look to build on his winning performance over the Bucs. My prediction is a 49ers win by a score of 24-20.

The fantasy playoffs are here so the waiver wire is more important than ever. Hopefully you made the playoffs but if you didn’t you can fight for consolation games or use the information to play DFS. Another week gone, another opportunity to make your team stronger and inch your way to that league trophy and an offseason of bragging rights.

Below are my top waiver wire priorities this week. Go get those hopefully available players to help your chances at a championship run. Good luck this week and remember to check back every week to stay informed on who you could target off waivers.

TOP PRIORITY OF THE WEEK

Jerick McKinnon – Kansas City Chiefs

Go off Jerick! The veteran RB for the Chiefs caught 7 of 9 targets for 112 receiving yards and 2 receiving TDs. Isiah Pacheco is the clear RB1 for KC, but McKinnon is that 3rd down RB who is a real threat to catch and run. McKinnon has 73 rushing yards on 14 attempts in his last 2 games combined and has also scored 3 receiving TDs in those 2 games as well. McKinnon set season highs in receptions, targets, receiving yards, and receiving TDs. KC takes on the rather terrible 1-win Houston Texans next game which can bode well for McKinnon if he gets more touches due to a blow out, but it could also hurt him knowing they won’t need to throw much. Chiefs get Texans, Seahawks, and Broncos next 3 games.
