With the holiday season right around the corner, the fantasy football season approaches its stretch run as owners make your final push towards the playoffs. That is also the ultimate week we have to worry about byes, but the waiver wire will continue being an important factor.
The good news for fantasy owners is that the wide receiver position didn’t suffer way too many serious injuries. Chris Hogan sat out, but that was expected with his shoulder ailment. Will Fuller suffered a cracked rib and will probably miss one video game, but his fantasy stock currently took a nosedive with Tom Savage under center. He no longer should be owned in 12-workforce leagues.
This week’s bye teams are the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, and SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 49ers. Which means Christian McCaffrey, T.Y. Hilton, Robby Anderson, and Marquise Goodwin won’t be available for fantasy owners.
Once more, let’s dive in with a look at the best waiver wire large receivers, owned in 50 percent or perhaps less of Yahoo! regular leagues.
Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans (48 percent)
We’ve been looking forward to Davis to enjoy a bigger role since coming back from a hamstring damage, and it would appear that he’s gained it. Davis led the Titans with 10 targets within their win over the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing with four catches for 48 yards. The one blemish was a lost fumble that could’ve been a touchdown, but it’s encouraging to observe Davis get this many appears from Marcus Mariota. He is actually a difference-maker in the ultimate month of the season.
Josh Doctson, Washington (29 percent)
We’re still waiting in Doctson to turn his potential into results, but that hasn’t seriously happened. In the last two games, he has just seven catches for 89 yards, failing to take good thing about Terrelle Pryor falling out in clumps of the gameplan. The good news is that Doctson is still a beginner and Washington might have to lean on the complete games with Rob Kelley injured again. Doctson gets the New Orleans Saints next.
Corey Coleman, Cleveland Browns (22 percent)
Coleman is set to return from a hand damage that landed him on injured reserve in Week 2. It’s not really a moment too soon for the Browns, whose criminal offense went in the tank without a legitimate No. 1 receiver for DeShone Kizer to toss to. It’s practical Coleman will become on simple count, and he’s a hardcore sell going against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week, but fantasy owners need to add him in every formats. He’ll likely be fed as many targets as practical when 100 percent.
Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions (seven percent)
Remember him? Golladay set the fantasy world alight with two touchdowns in Week 1, and his hype train quickly derailed when a hamstring damage knocked him out for five games. Golladay finally came back in Week 10 and received 64 yards on two catches, playing just 11 snaps as he rounds back to shape. He’ll likely take up more going forward, but with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones both healthy at this time, Golladay is extra of a “hang on and observe” bench stash in deeper leagues.
