It’s Week 14! We are now officially in the last part of the season. With fantasy playoffs here let’s take a look at Week 14 waiver adds to help you get that playoff win!
Whisnant’s Week 14 Waiver Adds
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Everyone thought that Jacquizz Rodgers was going to be the best option in the Tampa Bay backfield with Doug Martin gone. Instead, we were introduced to the Peyton Barber show. He rushed 23 times for 102 yards and had some work in the passing game. Although it would have been nice if he would have scored, he still put up good fantasy value. If Martin is out for a second straight week Barber is in for another solid start. Even with Martin in, Barber showed enough against the Packers that he could have some flex value. The matchup next week against the Lions is also appealing as their defense is a struggling one and a worse than average run defense.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, San Francisco 49ers
Goodwin was a start on Sports Al Dente Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em last week and performed well with new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the lineup. Goodwin had a season-high of 8 receptions and the relationship between quarterback and wide receiver looked good. Goodwin is a flex but has WR2 upside because he is a speedy threat to take it for a score every time he touches the ball. Goodwin gets to have a matchup against the 22 ranked pass defense of the Texans in week 14. So look for him to be a solid fantasy player this upcoming Sunday.
Jermaine Kearse. WR, New York Jets
All talk has been on Robby Anderson the past few weeks but Kearse showed in week 13 that the Jets have two capable wide receivers in their offense. In the last two weeks, Kearse has 16 receptions, 262 yards, and a touchdown. It seems good for fantasy owners that Kearse and Anderson are both fantasy starts with good upside. In Week 14, Kearse gets to go up against a Denver team that is one of the worst teams in the AFC. The matchup makes Kearse a good pick up on waivers this week.
Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks
One of the shockers of week 13, Davis was in complete control of Seattle’s backfield. His stats for the night were 16 rushes for 64 yards. While those stats are not too exciting, He does look like the lead back in the offense. Davis was also exciting to watch and had some explosive runs. If you need RB help, Davis can give you low-end RB2 value but has a tough matchup against the Jaguars. Either way, this is the man to trust in the Seattle backfield.
Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Besides a game against the Cardinals where he was locked down by Patrick Peterson, Marqise Lee has become the new number one for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Over the last four weeks other than the Cardinals game, Lee has 16 receptions, 261 yards, and three touchdowns. He is not a WR1 but can give you flex value and can be a solid WR3 in deeper leagues.
