Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups to Target

Corey Davis (NYJ): 13% rostered

  • Next opponents: @BUF, DET, JAC
  • True value: $4
  • Desperate need: $6
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: Davis looked good in his second game back from injury. He finished second among Jets wideouts in snaps, routes and receiving yards in Week 13 behind only Garrett Wilson. Davis drew a 17.5% target share, turning it into 85 receiving yards (1.84 yards per route run). Before losing time to injury in the middle of the season, Davis was quietly playing well, ranking 27th in PFF receiving grade and 26th in yards per route run (minimum 25 targets). Davis’s upcoming schedule is pretty favorable. Since Week 7, Buffalo has allowed the 13th-most fantasy points per game to perimeter wide receivers. Over the same period, Detroit and Jacksonville have coughed up the sixth- and seventh-highest yards per reception to wide receivers.

Jameson Williams (DET): 47% rostered

  • Next opponents: MIN, @NYJ, @CAR
  • True value: $4
  • Desperate need: $6
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: Williams only played eight snaps on Sunday, running two routes while drawing one target in his NFL debut. Rightfully so, Detroit is easing its first-round stud into the mix at wide receiver. It won’t take Williams long to establish himself in this WR room, even on limited snaps out the gate. Williams has nice matchups in two of the next three games to do just that. Since Week 7, Minnesota and Carolina are 32nd and 31st in fantasy points per game allowed to perimeter wide receivers. Williams could be a difference maker for your squad in the fantasy playoffs.

Parris Campbell (IND): 43% rostered

  • Next opponents: BYE, @MIN, LAC
  • True value: $3
  • Desperate need: $5
  • Budget-minded: $1

Analysis: Campbell entered Week 13 with top-36 WR outings in four of his last five games with Matt Ryan under center (WR9, WR5, WR11, WR32). Sunday night against Dallas, he only handled a 13.5% target share and had 43 receiving yards, but better days are ahead after the bye. Campbell faces the Vikings, who have conceded the sixth-most fantasy points per game to opposing slot receivers over their last five games.

D.J. Chark (DET): 16% rostered

  • Next opponents: MIN, @NYJ, @CAR
  • True value: $3
  • Desperate need: $5
  • Budget-minded: $1

Analysis: Chark resumed his role as a full-time receiver in the Lions’ offense in Week 12. Since then, he has had a 14.1% target share as the team’s field stretcher. Chark secured a touchdown against the Bills to save his fantasy day in Week 12 before exploding for 98 receiving yards against the Jaguars in Week 13. Chark should enjoy the same plus matchups as Jameson Williams on the outside against the Vikings and Panthers in the coming weeks. Notably, Minnesota is also giving up the ninth-highest deep ball completion rate. Chark is a strong WR3/flex play in Week 14.

Mack Hollins (LV): 31% rostered

  • Next opponents: @LAR, NE, @PIT
  • True value: $2
  • Desperate need: $3
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Hollins’ production has been a rollercoaster this season, but he’s now earning consistent volume in this offense. Over his last three games, he has a 22.3% target share. With Foster Moreau now injured, Hollins could earn an even bigger share of the passing pie. He has advantageous matchups in two of his next three games against the Rams and Steelers, who entered Week 13 having conceded the 12th-most and the most touchdowns to opposing wide receivers.

Julio Jones (TB): 18% rostered

  • Next opponents: @SF, CIN, @ARI
  • True value: $2
  • Desperate need: $3
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Jones is getting healthier at the right time, with 70% and 67.4% route participation rates in Weeks 10 and 12. When Jones has been (presumably) healthy, he has flashed glimpses of his former self, with two games with above 75.0 PFF receiving grades and 2.25 yards per route run (per PFF). After a date with San Francisco, Jones’ schedule looks quite favorable. Since Week 7, Cincinnati has looked like a shell of its former self, with the sixth-highest yards per attempt allowed. Over the same stretch, Arizona has permitted the most passing touchdowns in the NFL.

Stash Candidate: Kadarius Toney

Kadarius Toney is a must-stash player if you have the bench space. In Week 10, we got a brief look at his upside in the Chiefs’ passing attack. With only a 14.7% target share and 43.6% route participation rate, he rolled up 3.35 yards per route run and a 29% target per route run rate. If Toney’s balky hamstrings comply, he could push your team over the top as a smash flex play.
