Our weekly fantasy football waiver wire takes a look at the top pickups for Week 15 of the NFL season. Many of these players are still available in a majority of leagues and could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster. Others might be worth stashing on your bench, or are simply just players to add to your watch list. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Football Forum.

Running Backs

Kenneth Farrow SD | RB

Melvin Gordon got injured Week 14 and Farrow came in and played pretty well. It looks like Gordon escaped a major injury, but his status for the last couple of games is certainly in doubt. Farrow is a must add at this point since he will have good volume if given the chance to start. (about 25% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Ty Montgomery GB | RB

The Packers finally stopped giving James Starks the ball and Montgomery took full advantage. On his 12 touches he totaled 86 yards and he had a rushing touchdown as well. The Packers get creative with how they put the ball in Montgomery’s hands and I think he should continue to be a flex option over the last couple weeks of the fantasy season. (about 40% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Bilal Powell NYJ | RB

Matt Forte went down with an injury Week 14 and Powell finally got his chance to handle a full workload. He took full advantage racking up 179 total yards and two touchdowns. It sounds like Forte is highly unlikely for Week 15 and this could make Powell a great short term solution. (about 50% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Justin Forsett DEN | RB

The Denver running game is a mess and Forsett is certainly not the answer. However, he did out touch DeVontae Booker Week 14 and he looks like the guy to own in the Denver backfield. The Broncos have the Patriots Week 15, so it’s not a terrible matchup for Forsett if you are desperate for a running back in deeper leagues. (about 25% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Charles Sims TB | RB

Sims finally came back from injury and he picked up right where he left off. He will be the change of pace back for the Bucs for the rest of the way and he could have some value in PPR leagues. He will need a Doug Martin injury to have a ton of value, but he could be flex worthy Week 16 against the Saints if you are desperate. (about 20% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Wide Receivers

Taylor Gabriel ATL | WR

Gabriel had another monster game Week 14 with over 80 yards and another touchdown. He did this even with the Falcons getting up early and abandoning the pass in the second half. I think Gabriel could continue to have value even if Mohamed Sanu and Julio Jones are able to come back from injury Week 15. (about 50% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Ted Ginn Jr. CAR | WR

The Panthers got up early in Week 14 and they didn’t need to throw much in the second half. This led to Ginn having a down game, but I am still liking him as a high upside receiver during the last two games. His value comes when the Panthers are playing from behind or if they are in a shootout and I like the potential of those happening against the Redskins and Atlanta. (about 25% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Dontrelle Inman SD | WR

Inman continues to have solid production and he found the end zone for the third straight week. I like the consistent targets that he has been getting lately and I am a fan of his final two games against the Raiders and Browns. I know Inman isn’t a household name, but he could certainly help some teams win fantasy championships. (about 25% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Adam Thielen MIN | WR

Thielen’s numbers aren’t going to blow you away, but he it turning into a decent flex option in PPR leagues. He is averaging over eight targets a game over his last three and he is clearly one of Sam Bradford’s favorite targets. With his matchup against the Colts Week 16 I don’t mind him as a pickup and play if you need a receiver. (about 20% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Marqise Lee JAX | WR

At this point it looks like Lee is the only receiver we can trust on the Jags. He is averaging over six targets a game since Week 4 and while he doesn’t score many touchdowns he is still a fairly safe eight to ten point play in PPR leagues. You should only be looking his way if you are desperate, but the fact that he has such a high floor makes him someone to pay attention to. (about 15% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Robby Anderson NYJ | WR

I say it all the time, when there is a quarterback change then typically the targets get distributed differently than before. That’s been the case since Bryce Petty has taken over and he has been targeting Anderson early and often. He has 23 targets over the last two weeks and he could be a decent option down the stretch in deeper leagues. (about 5% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Quarterbacks

Sam Bradford MIN | QB

More then likely you have a quarterback that you are happy with for your Week 15 playoff matchup, but if not I don’t mind Bradford. He is at home against the Colts and it’s possible he has one of the best fantasy games of his season. The Colts defense isn’t that great and I feel the Colts offense can score some points against the Vikings solid defense. These factors could easily lead to one of the highest scoring Vikings games of the season. (about 15% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Defenses

Houston HOU | DEF

The Texans have a matchup at home against the Jags Week 15 and I like their chances for a big week. At this point it’s safe to say that Jacksonville is terrible at football and they should have a hard time moving the ball against Houston. (about 45% owned)
Recommendation: Worth a look as a pickup and play
