Our weekly fantasy football waiver wire takes a look at the top pickups at each position for Week 14 of the 2018 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. With that in mind, here’s a list of players should you consider adding to your squad for Week 14.
For a more in-depth look at the players on this list, watch our our Week 14 waiver wire video.
Top QB pickup: Dak Prescott (60% owned)
Prescott completed 24-of-28 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys’ 13-10, Week 13 win over the Saints. He now has over 200 yards passing in four-straight games, while totaling seven touchdowns and failing to toss an interception over that span. With upcoming matchups against the Eagles, Colts, and Bucs to finish the fantasy season, he’s the top priority at the position this week.
Top RB pickup: Jaylen Samuels (10% owned)
With James Conner out this week and potentially longer if rumors of a high-ankle sprain are accurate, Samuels is a priority wavier add. It is possible that the Steelers use a running back by committee with Stevan Ridley taking a share of the early down work. However, Samuels should be the preferred option in the Steelers backfield because of his usage in the aerial attack. In a plus matchup at Oakland in Week 14, he could be a difference maker in the first round of the fantasy playoffs.
RB priority list: Jaylen Samuels (10% owned), Jeff Wilson Jr. (5% owned), Rashaad Penny (35% owned), Justin Jackson (25% owned), Ty Montgomery (15% owned), Rex Burkhead (25% owned), Damien Williams (25% owned), Chase Edmonds (5% owned), Ronald Jones II (10% owned)
Top WR pickup: Adam Humphries (55% owned)
Humphries continues to have an expanded role with DeSean Jackson out with a thumb injury. In Week 13 against Carolina, Humphries caught 7-of-9 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown. He now has has scored at least 14 PPR points in five of his past six games, with a touchdown in three straight. Humphries is in the WR3 conversation if Jackson returns in Week 14, but he’s a must-start option in all formats if Jackson remains out.
WR priority list: Adam Humphries (55% owned), Dante Pettis (5% owned), Curtis Samuel (20% owned), Courtland Sutton (50% owned), Zay Jones (5% owned), Rashard Higgins (5% owned), Jordy Nelson (35% owned), DeVante Parker (15% owned), Michael Gallup (10% owned), Randall Cobb (35% owned), Bruce Ellington (10% owned)
Top TE pickup: Gerald Everett (35% owned)
Everett had three TD catches in Weeks 11-12 before a Week 13 dud against the Lions in which he had one catch for seven yards. The absence of injured WR Cooper Kupp has made Everett fantasy-viable, but he’s a risky week-to-week play without a steady amount of targets. However, he’s become a red-zone presence on an explosive offense, which keeps him in the streamer conversation.
