Every Monday of the season, theScore’s Justin Boone goes down the recommended waiver wire mics.

The percentages in the list are based on Yahoo Leagues. Free agent budget (FAB) amounts are offset by a salary cap of $ 100. Only players registered in less than 50% of the leagues are taken into account.

Quarterbacks

Taysom Hill, Saints

Following Roster FAB
against DAL 5% 4 $

Hill looked like the Saints’ best quarterback option when Jameis Winston suffered a season-ending injury. However, Hill wasn’t 100% at the time, and Trevor Siemian did just enough to keep the job… until now.

New Orleans reportedly saw enough of Siemian and gave Hill more first-team reps in practice with a plan to launch him on Thursday against the Cowboys.

Remember, Hill made four starts last year replacing an injured Drew Brees and was the QB8 in fantastic points per game during that span.

His rushing ability puts him in the mix as a low-end fantasy QB1, and that should cause problems for the Dallas defense in the short week.

Delivery options: Taylor Heinicke at LV (36% in list), Tua Tagovailoa against NYG (33% in list), Jimmy Garoppolo at SEA (34% in list)

Streaming options (if healthy): Justin Fields vs. ARI (21% registered)

Alexander Mattison, Vikings

Following Roster FAB
he 50% 49 $

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has denied reports that Dalvin Cook suffered a torn labrum and will miss time. Instead, Zimmer calls Cook every day and doesn’t rule him out for week 13.

It makes things difficult when screening Mattison, but he’s still worth a significant chunk of your remaining budget. The 23-year-old is one of the best running backs in the league, and there’s a good chance he’ll get at least one start while Minnesota allows Cook to heal.

Mattison was RB6 and RB7 respectively in the two games in which he saw significant volume this season, and he posted over 150 yards of scrum in each game.

Jamaal Williams, Lions

Following Roster FAB
against MIN 39% 24 $

Lions head coach Dan Campbell has strongly suggested that D’Andre Swift would not be available for this week’s game against the Vikings due to a sprained shoulder.

That would put Jamaal Williams in the lead against a team that just gave up 168 yards of scrimmage and a touchdown to Elijah Mitchell.

Williams doesn’t have Swift’s elite skills, but he has a well-rounded back capable of handling a three-way role. He can debut as RB2 in some fantastic lineups this week.

Dontrell Hilliard / D’Onta Foreman, Titans

Following Roster FAB
on Goodbye 29 %/46 % 19$/19$

The Titans ‘backfield duo had surprising success against the Patriots’ defense, with Hilliard shooting 133 yards of scrum and a score on 13 touches, while Foreman compiled 112 yards on 20 touches.

Both players were on the court for about 50% of Tennessee’s snaps, and each fumbled once.

The Titans are goodbye, but that should give fantastic managers hope that offense can still generate rushed production even in the absence of Derrick Henry.

While Jeremy McNichols will likely return for the next Tennessee context, Hilliard and Foreman deserve another chance. The Jaguars, the Titans’ next opponent, are expected to provide a positive play scenario, making Hilliard and Foreman intriguing RB3 with RB2 on the rise.

Matt Breida, Factures

Following Roster FAB
vs. NOT 23% 19 $

Breida went from third place on the Bills Depths chart to a pretty clear starter in a matter of weeks.

Zack Moss was a good scratch at Thanksgiving, and it paved the way for Breida to amass 55 yards and a touchdown while serving as a point guard. Most of Devin Singletary’s work came when the game was beyond the reach of the Saints.

It’s still the Bills backfield, which means multiple running backs will be involved and Josh Allen is a threat to steal throw-ins on the goal line. Buffalo’s schedule doesn’t do Breida a favor either, with clashes against the Patriots, Buccaneers and Panthers in the next three weeks.

Either way, Breida needs to be listed everywhere to see if he can continue producing as a fantastic RB3 with an RB2 cap.

Ameer Abdullah/Chuba Hubbard, Panthers

Following Roster FAB
on Goodbye 0%/37% 14$/14$

Christian McCaffrey is out for the year after suffering an ankle injury on Sunday, but things are different in the Panthers back room this time around.

While Hubbard played a dominant role in McCaffrey’s last injury stint, Abdullah has recently seen more snaps as a side option.

This will likely lead to a committee with the two full-backs sharing the time in a rushed attack capped by Cam Newton’s prowess on the goal line.

They should both be solid RB3 / flex options in their Week 14 competition against the Falcons, but beware of playing them in the fantastic playoffs when they face three tough defenses against the Bills, Bucs and Saints.

High potential backups like Sony michel (27% enrolled), Ronald Jones (19% enrolled), and Khalil Herbert (19% registered) should be registered in most leagues.

Flex options (if healthy): Jordan Howard in NYJ (16% enrolled)

Risky flexible options: Tevin Coleman vs. PHI (18% enrolled), Ty Johnson vs. PHI (41% enrolled), Rex Burkhead vs. IND (8% enrolled), Boston Scott in NYJ (19% enrolled), DeeJay Dallas vs. SF (10% enrolled)

Flexible options for throwing darts: Brandon Bolden at BUF (24% on roster), Ty Montgomery vs. DAL (0% on roster)

Other backups to register: Devontae Booker at MIA (35% on list), Jeff Wilson at SEA (46% on list), Latavius ​​Murray at PIT (34% on list), Samaje Perine vs. LAC (5% on list), Carlos Hyde at LAR (10% on list), Phillip Lindsay against NYG (12% on list), Jaret Patterson at LV (1% on list), Eno Benjamin at CHI (3% on list), Kenneth Gainwell in NYJ (12% on the list), Kene Nwagnwu (0% on the list)

Wide receivers

Van Jefferson, Rams

Following Roster FAB
against JAX 49% 24 $

DeSean Jackson’s departure helped Jefferson play an important role in the Rams’ passing offense.

He’s averaging 7.2 targets per game over the previous five games with stat lines of 4-43-1, 3-88-0, 3-41-0, 3-54-0 and 3-93 -1 – the latest numbers being his best and most recent performance on Sunday.

His comfort on offense is evident, and it wouldn’t be shocking if he outshines Odell Beckham Jr. for the remainder of the season. Treat Jefferson like a WR3 / flex option with a lot of benefits if Matthew Stafford stays healthy.

Josh Reynolds, Lions

Following Roster FAB
against MIN 1% 3 $

We recently highlighted Reynolds as a hiding place in Start, Sit, Stash, Quit after the Lions picked him up.

The logic was simple, Detroit lacked a real leading option in the receiving body, and Reynolds has a history with Jared Goff going back to their time together on the Rams.

It took a few weeks, but Reynolds left his mark on Thanksgiving by catching three of five targets thrown from 70 yards and one score.

With very little target competition on the roster, fantasy managers should immediately hide Reynolds to see if this continues.

Long-term upside reserves: Will Fuller (24% registered), DeVante Parker (30% registered)

Flexible options: Russell Gage v VG (17% registered), Kendrick Bourne at BUF (23% registered), DeSean Jackson v WAS (5% registered), AJ Green at CHI (41% registered), TY Hilton at HOU (28% registered), Tre’Quan Smith against DAL (5% registered), Laviska Shenault at LAR (41% registered)

Flex options (if healthy): Kadarius Toney at MIA (47% registered), Sterling Shepard at MIA (29% registered)

Risky flexible options: Rondale Moore at CHI (22% on list), Tim Patrick at KC (27% on list), Marquez Callaway vs. DAL (20% on list), Byron Pringle vs. DEN (1% on list)

Flexible options for throwing darts: Curtis Samuel at LV (13% on list), Amon-Ra St. Brown against MIN (5% on list), Quez Watkins in NYJ (1% on list), Jamison Crowder against PHI (24% on list) ), Darius Slayton at MIA (5% on list), Jauan Jennings at SEA (0% on list), Zay Jones vs. WAS (0% on list), Laquon Treadwell at LAR (0% on list)

Goodbye hiding places of the week: Marquez Valdes-Scantling (26% roster), Donovan Peoples-Jones (14% roster), Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (19% roster)

Other receivers to store: Nico Collins vs. IND (1% on list), Cedrick Wilson at NO (25% on list), Ashton Dulin at HOU (0% on list), Gabriel Davis vs. NE (2% on list)

Tight ends

Cole Kmet, Ours

Following Roster FAB
against ARI 24% 1 $

Kmet secures the spotlight spot in the tight ends section for the second straight week after delivering an eight catch, 65 yard performance against the Lions on a whopping 11 targets.

He has now seen at least five targets in five of his last six appearances and has finished in the top six among tight ends twice in the past month.

The 22-year-old has a bright future ahead of him, and we are witnessing the start of that ascent. It’s still a TE2 that’s best deployed as a fantasy streamer, but Kmet could be a starter for you the rest of the way if you’re desperate for the position.

Delivery options: Foster Moreau vs. WAS (1% on list), Jared Cook at CIN (48% on list), Evan Engram at MIA (34% on list), Gerald Everett vs. SF (27% on list)

Risk options de streamer : Tyler Conklin at DET (33% registered), James O’Shaughnessy at LAR (0% registered), Jonnu Smith at BUF (22% registered), Jack Doyle at HOU (1% registered),

Dart Throwing Streamer Options: CJ Uzomah versus LAC (18% registered), Ryan Griffin versus PHI (1% registered), Brevin Jordan versus IND (0% registered)
