NFL Week 15 Fantasy Waiver Wire Wonders

 

With Fantasy playoffs underway and major players going down for injury it is very important that you take a look at a couple of theses guys going into your Week 15 match-up!

QB - Nick Foles PHI
Foles had a monster breakout week in Week 14 throwing for 381 yards and 2 TD. While he is unlikely to match those numbers again this week it is clear that Andy Reid to taking the training wheels off Foley a bit and letting him throw the ball around. If you are an RGIII or Michael Vick owner Foles would be a good pick-up for a playoff fill-in.
QB - Brandon Weeden CLE
The Browns are winners of three in a row and have a legitimate chance at a 4th this week against Washington, particularly if RGIII doesn't play. He has shown your typically rookie growing pains over the course of the season but is beginning to hit his stride coming down the stretch. It is a stretch to imagine but if Cleveland were to run the table they are a playoff team. For that to happen Weeden will have to be a major contributor.
RB - David Wilson NYG
Bradshaw is likely to be a game-time decision. If he doesn't play the explosive Wilson becomes the feature back in a big time match-up vs Atlanta. Wilson showed what he is capable of last week both on the ground and on returns. If he gets some space no one is catching him. Keep an eye on Bradshaw's status late in the week. If he doesn't play, Wilson is a must start. 
RB - Brian Powell NYJ
Powell is splitting carries with Shonn Greene but has put up 70+ yards and a touchdown in consecutive weeks. Facing the league's 23rd rated rush defense this week expect the Jets to keep the ball on the ground leading to the potential for big games from either or both backs.
WR - Danario Alexander SD
If Alexander is still available in your league you would be crazy not to pick him up. He has developed into the #1 man in San Diego as seen last week with a pair of touchdowns. Surprisingly, Alexander is only owned in about 30% of fantasy leagues. Go get him!
WR  - Justin Blackmon JAX
Cecil Shorts is likely out next week against Miami. Chad Henne going up against his former team will have a little chip on his shoulder and something to prove. With Blackmon as the new #1 man expect him to be targeted early and often.  *EDITOR'S NOTE - Shorts will play this week 12/16*
TE  - Dennis Pitta BAL
Pitta is starting to heat up again finding the end-zone last weekend against the Redskins. Baltimore draws a Denver team who has been vulnerable against TE's this season. The Ravens are fighting for home field in the playoffs. A win against the Broncos would go a long way towards accomplishing that goal. Expect Pitta to draw some more red-zone targets this weekend.
