2017 Fantasy Football - Waiver-Wire Targets

Below are players I'll be targeting on the waiver wire this week. As usual, I'm using the 50-percent(ish) ownership threshold at Yahoo to determine who is allowed on the list.

Players are listed in the order I would assign waiver priority for each position.

Running Backs

Danny Woodhead (49 percent)
Woodhead wasn't needed much his first week back from injured reserve due to the Packers and Brett Hundley never putting up a fight, but he still caught five passes and played ahead of Buck Allen. In PPR, I would have Woodhead as my No. 1 waiver pickup.

Samaje Perine (35 percent)
Perine had done less than nothing this season until last week, which also coincided with Chris Thompson breaking his fibula, while Rob Kelley was already injured. The Redskins could add someone like Andre Ellington, which would hurt Perine's upside, but for now, he's set up as the lead back in a very good offense.





Austin Ekeler (35 percent)
Ekeler is still just Melvin Gordon's backup, but he keeps playing well enough that he's going to see work and Gordon is almost always banged up just a little bit.

Devontae Booker (7 percent)
Booker had more touches than C.J. Anderson last week and looks like he is the preferred hurry-up offense back. That may not mean much in the end, but it does give Booker enough PPR appeal to make sure he's on your team if you have room.
Damien Williams (35 percent)
Williams is the lead back in Miami, but will continue to lose work to Kenyan Drake. Williams has done enough for me to want him as a backup flex player.



Wide Receivers

Josh Doctson (28 percent)
Doctson's workload has increased significantly over the last month, and it appears he'll be Washington's No. 1 receiver, i.e. the player the opponent's best cornerback will shadow. Washington throws the ball enough to accommodate more than one receiver, which pushes me to Doctson over someone like Corey Coleman, who I like quite a bit.

Corey Coleman (31 percent)
Coleman was a huge part of Cleveland's game plan in his first game back from injury, and he actually put up a good game against the best pass defense in the league. That's enough right there to want him on my team.



Kenny Stills (37 percent)
Still has the chops to put up games like he did last week, and if Matt Moore sticks as the Dolphins' quarterback, I think Stills can be useful even when he's not putting up 180 yards and a score.

Danny Amendola (50 percent)
Amendola had a big game against the Raiders with Chris Hogan out last week. It's always tough to get a read on injury news from the Patriots, but the fact that Hogan hasn't practiced at all gives me the feeling that he will be out again this week, which would put Amendola in a good situation against the Dolphins.



Bruce Ellington (8 percent)
Ellington's usefulness will likely hinge on Will Fuller's injury status. If Fuller can't go, Ellington remains a decent PPR option.

Marquise Goodwin (9 percent)
Goodwin is the top receiver in a poor group in San Francisco, but I like that Jimmy Garoppolo is waiting in the wings.

Tight Ends

Charles Clay (33 percent)
If Tyrod Taylor takes back his rightful starting job, I expect Clay to get going sooner than later. They have a good connection, and Clay should be back into the swing of things now.

O.J. Howard (22 percent)
Howard is getting more involved, and Ryan Fitzpatrick seems to prefer him over Cameron Brate. Howard is risky, but when he gets targets, he's been useful in fantasy.
Quarterbacks

Tyrod Taylor (40 percent)
If Taylor wins his starting job back, he has a nice schedule to finish the season, with Kansas City, New England, Indianapolis and Miami on the docket. The man played just a half last week and finished as the 10th-best fantasy quarterback.
