Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups to Target

Roschon Johnson (CHI): 21% rostered

  • Next Opponents: DET, @CLE, ARI
  • True value: $14
  • Desperate need: $23
  • Budget-minded: $9

Analysis: The other rookie RB from the University of Texas looked strong in primetime in Week 12. The Bears made a concerted effort to get Johnson touches on the ground and through the air in that game, and he finished with 10-35-0 rushing and 5-40-0 receiving. A post-bye rookie bump could be in order for Johnson, a perfect complement to Justin Fields in the RPO game.

Noah Brown (HOU): 40% rostered

  • Next Opponents: @NYJ, @TEN, CLE
  • True value: $4
  • Desperate need: $6
  • Budget-minded: $2

Analysis: Brown finally returned to the Texans’ lineup in Week 13 after dealing with a knee injury for the previous two weeks. He was immediately reinstalled as a full-time starter, as Robert Woods and John Metchie split snaps. With the unfortunate season-ending injury to Tank Dell, Brown should be Nico Collins‘ running mate for the rest of the season. In Weeks 8-10, Brown had a 17.1% target share, a 23.4% air-yard share, 4.55 yards per route run and a 16.7% first-read share (per Fantasy Points Data), as he averaged 127.3 receiving yards per game over that stretch. Any receiver tied to C.J. Stroud warrants flex consideration, but Brown could develop into a weekly WR3 with his standing in the target tree now elevated.

Brevin Jordan (HOU): 15% rostered

  • Next Opponents: @NYJ, @TEN, CLE
  • True value: $1
  • Desperate need: $2
  • Budget-minded: $0

Analysis: Jordan was Houston’s starting tight end in Week 13, as Dalton Schultz was sidelined with a hamstring injury. As long as Schultz is out, Jordan will be the full-time tight end tied to the magic-producing football cannon that is C.J. Stroud‘s right arm. Last week, Jordan played 77% of the offensive snaps with a 14.8% target share and 2.37 yards per route run. He finished second on the team in receiving yards. With Houston’s wide receivers having to deal with Jets CBs Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed in Week 14, Jordan could see an elevated role. Don’t be surprised if he is a TE1 in Week 14.

Jameis Winston (NO): 1% rostered

  • Next Opponents: CAR, NYG, @LAR
  • True value: $2
  • Desperate need: $5
  • Budget-minded: $1

Analysis: Derek Carr was playing like hot garbage, with Saints fans raining boos down on him before he was obliterated by a free rusher. Carr entered concussion protocol and also had sore ribs and a creaky throwing shoulder. Enter Winston, who has been a QB1 in fantasy before. I’ve long contended that Winston is a better QB than Carr, so we’ll see what he can do to keep the Saints alive in the playoff race.
