Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups to Target

Michael Badgley (DET): 16% rostered

  • Next opponents: MIN, @NYJ, @CAR
  • True value: $1
  • Desperate need: $2
  • Budget-minded: $1

Analysis: After going 4-of-4 on field goals and 4-of-4 on extra points vs. the Jaguars in Week 13, Badgley gets a Week 14 date against the Vikings, who entered Week 13 having given up the fourth-most fantasy points to kickers. Badgley will get to kick inside a dome for that one, and the Lions offense has given him consistent doses of scoring opportunities.

Jason Sanders (MIA): 16% rostered

  • Next opponents: @LAC, @BUF, GB
  • True value: $1
  • Desperate need: $2
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Tied to the potent Miami offense and kicking in warm Los Angeles, Sanders is an attractive Week 14 streamer against the Chargers. Sanders has been one of the hottest kickers in the league, with 16 field goals in his last five games.

Cameron Dicker (LAC): 37% rostered

  • Next opponents: MIA, TEN, @IND
  • True value: $1
  • Desperate need: $2
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Dicker finally missed a kick in his sixth game of the year and his fifth with the Chargers, failing to convert a 52-yard try Sunday against the raiders. Dicker is now 12-of-13 on FGs for the year and 12-of-12 on extra points. He’s tied to a good Chargers offense, but next two matchups are against the Dolphins and Titans, which have been two of the least generous kicker opponents this season.

Jake Elliott (PHI): 37% rostered

  • Next opponents: @NYG, @CHI, @DAL
  • True value: $1
  • Desperate need: $2
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Too many extra points, not enough field goals – that’s the risk of trotting out Elliott as your fantasy kicker. Having a kicker tied to such a prolific offense means a decent weekly floor. But Week 13 was a perfect example of the Elliott experience. He kicked five extra points in Philadelphia’s 35-10 win over Tennessee and didn’t attempt a single field goal. Elliott is 37-of-39 on extra points but only 9-of-11 on field goals for the year. He has a decent Week 14 matchup against the Giants, who entered Week 13 having allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to kickers.

Greg Joseph (MIN): 18% rostered

  • Next opponents: @DET, IND, NYG
  • True value: $1
  • Desperate need: $1
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Joseph has been erratic this year, missing five field goals and five extra points, but he was a perfect 2-of-2 on FGs (including a 51-yarder) and 3-of-3 PATs Sunday against the Jets. As the weather turns colder in many parts of the country, Joseph is weather-proof for the next three weeks, kicking in Detroit’s dome next week and in the Vikings’ domed environs against the Colts and Giants in Weeks 15-16.
