Dynasty Adds To Target On Waivers, Going Into Week 15
Congratulations to those dynasty owners who made it to the next round of their fantasy football playoffs. In the one dynasty league that I had to play last week, I lost. In my other two leagues I’m coming off of the bye week, and in one league I lost Mike Evans. Below I’ll go over each offensive position; quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight ends in dynasty to help guide you to who should be added going into week 15. I’m going to use My Fantasy League for this article, but these suggestions should apply to other formats too. Let’s dive into the depleted waiver wire and who are the top dynasty adds.
Quarterback – N/A
I would check out my quarterbacks article to see if any of these players are still available for the remainder of the season or going into the off-season.
Running back – Deandre Washington
(Season Stats: 62 carries 209 rushing yards 2 rushing touchdowns, 24 catches 210 receiving yards)
Deandre Washington filled in for starting running back Josh Jacobs, who was out with a shoulder injury Sunday. Washington ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and added 43 more yards on 6 catches, Sunday. Jacobs is scheduled to undergo an MRI in the beginning of the week. Depending on the results, the rookie could miss this week’s game against Jacksonville. If you’re a Jacobs owner, Washington needs to be owned, and should be owned regardless. Deandre makes a strong RB2 for however long Jacobs is out. The Raiders play the Jaguars, Chargers, and Broncos to finish the season.
Wide Receiver – Steven Sims
(Season Stats: 18 catches 120 receiving yards, 6 catches 82 yards and 1 touchdown)
Rookie Steven Sims, 22, is someone that I thought about including here for a few weeks now. That he’s part of the Redskins offense is the reason why I haven’t mentioned him earlier. I can no longer ignore his involvement from week to week. His snap percentage has continued to increase each week since week 11. Sims also saw his greatest target volume of the season, with 7, and catches, with 4. If you have an open roster spot and are in need of wide receiver depth, Sims should be someone you look to add. It wouldn’t shock me to see the top receivers for 2020 being McLaurin, Harmon, and Sims in D.C.
Tight End – Hayden Hurst
(Season Stats: 26 receptions 286 receiving yards 2 touchdowns)
With starter Mark Andrews going down with a thigh contusion Sunday, Hurst stepped up. Hurst ended the day with 3 catches on 3 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown. With the Ravens playing on Thursday night, against the Jets, there’s a chance Andrews misses this game. If that’s the case then Hurst would make for a streaming option. More so, if Jackson also misses this game. This is an add for this week, not so much long term, due to how many tight ends are involved in their offense.
Depending on the size of your dynasty leagues and roster sizes, these players may be deeper adds. Nonetheless, it is always important to stay one step ahead of your fellow owners on the waiver wire. The savvy dynasty owner is looking for opportunities along with current usage. Always remember to check your waiver wire(s) every week, even if you think there isn’t anything worth adding. Good luck in week 15!
