Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups to Target

Jared Goff (DET): 50% rostered

  • Next opponents: MIN, @NYG, @CAR
  • True value: $7
  • Desperate need: $11
  • Budget-minded: $4

Analysis: Goff was a QB1 in Week 13 against the Jaguars. It was his third appearance among the top 12 QBs this season. The former top overall pick tied a season high with 41 passing attempts for 340 yards and two touchdown passes to Amon-Ra St. Brown. Next week, the Lions take on a vulnerable Vikings secondary. Goff has performed best against teams with below-average coverage numbers. The two subsequent games against the Giants and Panthers are less than ideal, but Goff is a premium Week 14 streaming option with the way this offense is humming along.

Mike White (NYJ): 18% rostered

  • Next opponents: @BUF, DET, JAX
  • True value: $6
  • Desperate need: $10
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: Even in a loss to Minnesota, White had some moments of brilliance. He continued to pepper standout rookie WR Garrett Wilson, leading to many more big plays than seen at any point with Zach Wilson under center. A stunning dropped pass in the end zone by Braxton Berrios was the difference in the game, but White has seized the team’s favor over their first-round headache.

Mac Jones (NE): 13% rostered

  • Next opponents: @ARI, @LV, CIN
  • True value: $5
  • Desperate need: $9
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: I know, this is an ugly name to mention these days. Jones is coming off consecutive poor showings in the fantasy department and is the leader of the “sick of Matt Patricia” angry mob that has formed as a result. The good news is that the Pats have two games coming up that figure to offer less resistance for this struggling offense. New England has also gone to an unusually high neutral-script pass rate the last few games, putting Mac Jones in pole position to be a strong streaming option against Arizona and Las Vegas.

Ryan Tannehill (TEN): 17% rostered

  • Next opponents: JAX, @LAC, HOU
  • True value: $4
  • Desperate need: $8
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: Tannehill has been a top-12 QB in each of the past two seasons, but you wouldn’t know it by the way his name is dragged in the fantasy community. Thankfully, you can scrape him off the bottom of the scrap heap for a jaunt with the Jaguars in Week 14. Those strapped for FAAB cash can do a lot worse at the QB position than with the steady Titans signal-caller against one of the league’s worst pass defenses.
