NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2019-2020 Week 14


This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups for week 14 of the 2019-2020 NFL season.


It is not for the following:



Comments that fall into one of these categories or are otherwise not on topic for this thread will be removed.


Some discussion of waiver suggestions is allowed, but this is not the place for an extended debate on the merits of any particular player. Take these in-depth discussions over to the outlook threads for the individual player(s) in question.

Myles Gaskin

 

Ballage is now likely out for the rest of the season, and while the articles will be about Laird and he'll get all the waiver/FAAB love, his 16 for 36 (2.25 YPC) on the season isn't blowing anyone away. Take away his "long" run of 13 yards on the year, and it's even more dismal at 15 for 23 (1.53 YPC).

 

I wouldn't want to start either, and it's no sure thing that he even gets carries, but Gaskin will likely be a free pickup, and I have higher confidence in him becoming a featured back long-term than Laird.

 

For those who didn't see his thread earlier this year, I mentioned the following there:

Yup, had the benefit of watching Gaskin play quite a bit. He was the first freshman in University of Washington history to rush for 1,000+ yards, and he was ultra-productive in college (he's 13th all-time in NCAA rushing yards, and you'd recognize many of the name ahead of him as a starting NFL RBs).

The weird thing is he's not overly "elite" at any one skill, but he's a plus in basically every category.

 

He can be shifty, can run hard, can be fast (he won a state title in the 100m dash in high school), and can catch passes. He rarely fumbled, and was a core reason the Huskies won as many games as they did the last few seasons..

The Vikings might be on the wire in a lot of leagues coming off the bye. They get Detroit and Blough at home next week if anyone needs a DST.

 

Add then now before the game starts if need be.

Pascal if Hilton remains out ?

This is what I came to post. He's a very boom/bust risky option, but the ceiling is pretty enticing, particularly in a great matchup.

Only problem here is you dont know which Jameis you are gonna get, turnovers could kill ya setting up the other offense with great field position.

I recommend Alexander Mattison in super deep leagues (4+), he could be a major surprise for most people that didn't see him coming.

Was this your attempt at humor, or did you mean to say 14+ team leagues?

Robby Anderson is floating around on my wire. Gotta think he's the best pick up and play option for this week available on most wires? I have Jamison but can't possibly trust him after two duds in a row and I'm thinking Robby is a great high upside play against the dolphins

if youre not going to play them, would much rather pick up an extra defense or rb handcuff (if any remain).  really no need for a wr4 or 5 at this point in the season....

Depends what your opponent needs. Might be able to run interference.
