Lions win! Lions win!

The now 1-10-1 Lions will look to extend their season-best winning streak in Week 14 against the Denver Broncos

The 2021 Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire will try to focus on players rostered in under 35% of Yahoo leagues.

Quarterbacks

Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints (34% rostered)

Hill did not have a good real-life game on Thursday, completing just 19-of-41 pass attempts for 264 yards and four interceptions. But we don’t really care about that, do we?

Hill’s 24.66 Fantasy points were good enough for QB4 through Sunday’s games, thanks to a pair of touchdown passes and 101 yards on the ground. 

Hill will be attempting to play through a “mallet finger” injury, which could further affect his throwing. However, the Saints’ QB has a good floor thanks to his rushing ability and has a nice bounceback spot against the Jets in Week 14.

Running Backs

D’Onta Foreman, Tennessee Titans (40% rostered)

Foreman was the Titans’ lead running back in their Week 12 loss to the New England Patriots. The former Houston Texan gained 109 yards on 19 carries against New England but lost a key fumble early in the third quarter.

Despite the miscue, Foreman should have at least a 50-50 split with Dontrelle Hilliard (also 40% rostered) against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14. Although the Titans’ offense has struggled without Derrick Henry, they should have no problems moving the ball on the ground against the Jags.

Kenneth Gainwell, Philadelphia Eagles (12% rostered)

This went so well last time Miles Sanders got hurt that we just have to try it again. After Sanders went down with an ankle injury, Gainwell became the main ‘back for the Eagles. The rookie took 12 carries for 54 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 33 yards.

Without Boston Scott and Jordan Howard available, Gainwell performed well in an increased role. The Eagles have a bye this week but Gainell is still worth an add for managers with bench room in the event that Sanders is unable to play in Week 15. Just keep in mind that he has a very low floor is Scott and Howard are able to suit up.

Other Options: Adrian Peterson, Seattle Seahawks (17% rostered)

Wide Receiver

Russell Gage, Atlanta Falcons (34% rostered)

Gage has been the Falcons’ No.1 wide receiver in the absence of Calvin Ridley. Since the beginning of November, Gage has averaged over seven targets per game and has been out-targeted Kyle Pitts (38-32) over that span.

Gage had his best game of the season last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, catching 11 passes for 130 yards. Gage should once again be in for a heavy workload in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

The receiver has a decent floor thanks to the volume he’s been seeing and could be a low-end WR3 in the final regular-season matchup in many fantasy leagues.

Other Options: K.J. Osborn, Minnesota Vikings (4% rostered)

Tight Ends

Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings (30% rostered)

Adam Thielen sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 13 and will likely miss multiple weeks. Conklin saw a bump in targets in his absence, drawing nine from Kirk Cousins and catching seven for 56 yards.

Receiver K.J. Osborn will see more opportunities as well, but Conklin should soak up enough of Thielen’s targets to become a low-end streamer this week against the Steelers.

Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears (26% rostered)

Kmet continued to see solid volume in the Bears’ offense with another seven targets in Week 13. The production didn’t quite follow, as he caught just three passes for 41 yards against the Cardinals.

However, the seven targets were the seventh-most among tight ends this past week and he should continue to be the Bears No. 2 passing option behind Darnell Mooney.
