Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Top Pickups for Week 15

Damien Harris (NE): 50% rostered

  • Next opponents: @LV, CIN, MIA
  • True value: $6
  • Desperate need: $11
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: The love going to Rhamondre Stevenson this season is well-earned, but the inability of Damien Harris to stay healthy has contributed to those opportunities. Harris is more than capable of piling up yards and scoring touchdowns while complementing Stevenson’s role in the New England offense. Mac Jones has been lost this season without a steady running game or a competent offensive coordinator. Harris should be back for a wonderful matchup versus the Raiders and for decent matchups against the Bengals and Dolphins to wrap up the fantasy season.

Gus Edwards (BAL): 49% rostered

  • Next opponents: @CLE, ATL, PIT
  • True value: $12
  • Desperate need: $19
  • Budget-minded: $5

Analysis: The Ravens might have prevailed over their hated rivals from Pittsburgh on Sunday, but they also lost backup QB Tyler Huntley to an injury. Baltimore is already a run-heavy offense under OC Greg Roman, but now the Ravens might lean into that strategy even more with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards healthy and back in the fold. Edwards toted the rock 13 times for 66 yards in Week 14 – about even with the more productive Dobbins’ 15 carries. The Gus Bus has the ability to outperform Dobbins in a given week, so he is a worthy addition for the fantasy playoffs.

D.J. Chark (DET): 40% rostered

  • Next opponents:@NYJ, @CAR, CHI
  • True value: $6
  • Desperate need: $10
  • Budget-minded: $3

Analysis: Over the last two weeks, Chark has been crushing as the Lions’ deep threat. He has a 16.2% target share, 2.46 yards per route run and at least 94 receiving yards in each of his last two games. Wake up! He should not still be below 50% rostership entering this week. That needs to change ASAP! This week’s matchup against the Jets isn’t fantastic, but Chark should still get enough volume to remain a low-end flex. Chark gets two cake matchups after the Jets, though. Since Week 8, Carolina has given up the fifth-most fantasy points per game to perimeter receivers. Over that same period, Chicago is 31st in yards per reception allowed to receivers.

Elijah Moore (NYJ): 27% rostered

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

Analysis: Moore led the Jets in targets in Week 14 (21.2% target share) while playing 82.4% of the snaps. Moore’s playing time crept upwards in Week 13, and the trend continued in Week 14, as he ran a route on 100% of the Jets’ pass attempts on Sunday. Moore is a strong flex moving forward. His remaining matchups are all fantastic for a slot receiver. Since Week 8, the Lions have allowed the most fantasy points per game to slot receivers, and Jacksonville has permitted the third-most. Then, Moore faces the Seahawks, whose easiest corner to pick on is in the slot.
