Waiver Wire Watch: Week 14

Every week, I highlight a few players that you should target in waivers. I use the ESPN league data when filtering players, so the only players eligible for discussion here are those that are available on the waiver wire of at least 50% of ESPN’s leagues. I’ll list each player’s percentage-owned after their name so you have an idea of how available they are in leagues around the country. I’ll always try to mention a few players that are available in 90% of leagues for those of you in 12-team leagues or leagues with big rosters. I’ll rank them in the order I’d pick them up in a league with a high-performance, PPR scoring system.

Please note that these rankings are for total value through the end of the year. Players with particularly good matchups this week are in bold.

RUNNING BACKS

Peyton Hillis (62.3) would be a great play against Kansas City this week. Le’Ron McClain (52.4) appears to be the RB1 in Baltimore right now, but matchups against Washington and Pittsburgh over the next two weeks. make him an iffy pickup.
