Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire: Pay a Visit to the Barber

Bucs Peyton Barber

It’s playoff time baby!!!!! At least for some of us. For those of you that didnt make it, hopefully there is a toilet bowl to playoff or avoid an awful punishment. The loser bracket loser gets a awesome trophy to display all off-season while another has to buy a pizza for the winner.

There is some value to be found on the Week 14 waiver wire. As much as we all hate to admit it, there are players on the wire that will swing leagues. Tim Hightower comes to mind as someone nobody wanted to start but were happy they did. Who can help you finish strong and bring home that trophy?


Peyton Barber | RB | Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It looks like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have found a RB that they can lean on. A week after finding the end zone twice on very limited carries, Barber got 23 carries. He got over the century mark against a Packers defense that has been solid against the run. Barber could be a RB to use down the stretch at a position that many of us are struggling to find bodies.

Giovani Bernard | RB | Cincinnati Bengals

Giovani Bernard has the potential to be something down the stretch. RB Joe Mixon left Monday’s game against the Steelers after taking a huge hit. If he misses any time, Bernard would a difference maker. He had 77 rushing yards on only 13 carries. He also caught 2 of his 3 passes for 19 yards. He is a great speculative add if you have space.

Mike Davis | RB | Seattle Seahawks

Mike Davis? Mike Davis? Yes, Mike Davis. The Seattle Seahawks gave Davis 16 carries on Sunday and he looked solid averaging 4 YPC. The upcoming schedule against Jacksonville and the Rams is not ideal but if you are looking for body, Davis could fit the bill.

The Houston Texans are desperate for WRs to line up across from DeAndre Hopkins. Both Braxton Miller and Bruce Ellington let Sunday’s game against the Titans due to injury. Andre Ellington caught 5 of his 6 targets for 56 yards. If you need RB help in PPR Ellington could be a great answer.

Jermaine Kearse | WR | New York Jets

The offensive juggernaut that is the New York Jets offense is rolling. Josh McCown is not only making Robby Anderson a fantasy stud but helping Jermaine Kearse be a flexworthy WR. He has 29 targets over the past three weeks. The last two weeks he caught 16 passes and went over 100 yards in both games. At Denver this week is a tough matchup but the last three games are real, real nice!

Marquise Goodwin | WR | San Francisco 49ers

Talk about flexworthy. Marquise Goodwin seems to be that and maybe more. He caught all of 8 of his targets for 99 yards on Sunday from new starter Jimmy Garoppolo. The offense seemed to move better as a whole against a Bears defense that has been has been good, especially at home. If they can convert more drives into 6 points Goodwin could be a reliable weapon. The 49ers play the Texans and Titans the next two weeks. Both defenses are really bad against opposing passers. Jimmy G could even be a solid streaming option the next two weeks if you’re a QB needy team

Cameron Brate | TE | Tampa Buccaneers

Jameis Winston is making Cameron Brate a thing again. Brate was targeted six times only catching two of them. Good news for fantasy owners both catches were in the end zone. If you need a TE for the stretch run, Brate should be a top option.

David Njoku | TE | Cleveland Browns

David Njoku is a widely available TE for those scrambling this week. He has 10 targets over the past two weeks and found the end zone against the Chargers. Now he is home to face a Packers defense that has been torched the past two weeks by opposing TEs allowing 3 TDs over that span. DeShone Kizer should continue to target his fellow rookie and hopefully he finds the end zone with one of those targets.
