Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets
Written by Derek Brown
Luke Musgrave (GB): 18% rostered
- Next Opponents: DET, @LV, BYE
- True value: $5
- Desperate need: $10
- Budget-minded: $3
Analysis: Musgrave has been checking the boxes for playing time that we look for in tight ends. The on-field production hasn’t been there, though. His 18.1% target share and 49 receiving yards in Week 3 might not look like it, but it’s an extremely good sign. Against New Orleans, those are sparkling numbers. The Saints have been a dreadful matchup for tight ends for a few seasons. Musgrave will have peaks and valleys in his production as with most rookies, but the usage remains for Musgrave to grow into a weekly TE1.
Jake Ferguson (DAL): 41% rostered
- Next Opponents: NE, @SF, @LAC
- True value: $2
- Desperate Need: $4
- Budget-minded: $1
Analysis: Brace yourself. It’s a tough scene on the waiver wire if you’re looking for tight end help. Ferguson is among the best available options this week. He played 69% of the Cowboys’ offensive snaps in Week 3, with a 61% route participation mark. His 17.5% target share was nice, but Ferguson’s playing time will make it difficult to trust him week to- week. Entering Week 3, Ferguson was leading the NFL in red zone targets. If we’re just touchdown-hunting by picking him up, at least we can feel pretty good that Ferguson is a decent bet to make at the TE position.
Julian Hill (MIA): 0% rostered
- Next Opponents: @BUF, NYG, CAR
- True value: $1
- Desperate Need: $2
- Budget-minded: $0
Analysis: If you just had to google Julian Hill‘s name, don’t be ashamed. After looking at Week 3 player usage, I had to research who Hill was as well. With that said, let’s all learn about Mr. Hill together. Hill is a rookie UDFA from Campbell University. In his final collegiate season for the Fighting Camels, he ran from the slot on 45% of his snaps with 1.35 YPRR (per PFF). Hill checks the athleticism boxes with a 4.7 time in the 40-yard dash and a 71st percentile burst score (per Playerprofiler.com). Hill only drew one target in Week 3, but he ran only one fewer route than Tyreek Hill and played every snap except one. In his first NFL game, Hill shoved Durham Smythe to the bench. The Dolphins’ target tree gets thin quickly receiving options after Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Miami’s backs. Hill could be a zero, but he could also carve out a role in one of the best offenses in the NFL. He’s worth taking a shot on now.
