Week 14: Waiver Wire Pickups
The Rams and fantasy owners have been searching for the successor to wide receiver Brian Quick for several weeks now. There have been a few false starts, but Bailey looks like the best candidate right now. He's had two weeks of heavy usage and corresponding statistical success. Last week, he turned a team-high nine targets into seven catches for 89 yards and a touchdown. In Week 13, he caught five of his six targets for 100 yards. He could've had an even better stat line Sunday had the Rams not blown out the Raiders and gone into clock-killing mode for most of the second half. Bailey is a fast, somewhat undersized WR who is seeing increased involvement in the Rams' offense. He should merit WR3 consideration next week against the Redskins.MyFantasyLeague availability: 100%
What's true for Adams is also true for Moncrief. The Colts' rookie has struggled to achieve fantasy consistency, primarily as a result of his usage. Prior to Week 13, his only remarkable game of the season came when veteran Reggie Wayne was sidelined with an injury in Week 8; Moncrief caught seven passes on 12 targets for 113 yards and a score in Pittsburgh. However, it's increasingly clear that Wayne is slowing down, and this is very likely his last year in the NFL. Moncrief's been seeing an increased number of offensive snaps and made it onto the field for about 40 percent of them in Week 13. He has the speed to be a serious deep threat and plays in one of the league's most prolific passing offenses. If you're badly outgunned in your playoff or consolation matchup and are searching for a potential home run hitter, Moncrief is a solid option. His floor is very low, but his ceiling is high. Additionally, Moncrief should be owned in every dynasty league there is.MyFantasyLeague availability: 100%
Rodgers has been a favored player in this piece over the past handful of weeks for a few reasons. First among them is the fact that his offense is scoring points at a tremendous rate. Aaron Rodgers is playing some of the best football of his career, and he's spreading the ball around. Secondly, the Packers' organization is invested in Richard Rodgers. They spent a third-round pick on the former college wide receiver in the 2014 draft, and they want to see him succeed. He's had an increased presence in the red zone through the past two games as evidenced by his touchdown in each. If he can continue to develop a steady role for himself in this offense, he'll merit starter consideration very soon.
