Top Waiver Adds

Elijah Moore, WR, New York Jets (27% rostered Yahoo / 32.9% rostered ESPN)

Wait... people didn't flock to the waiver wire to pick up Moore after Zach Wilson got benched? C'mon!

I had mentioned the second-yard wideout as a worthy pickup in this column a couple of weeks ago on the assumption that a change at QB would help right the ship.

Turns out that logic has worked out. Moore ended Sunday's contest against the Bills with 10 targets and finished as the WR32 in PPR scoring. Additionally, Week 13 against Minnesota was quiet for him, but Moore did secure six targets in that matchup as well.

Why does that matter? Since Week 12 (aka since Mike White took over at quarterback), Moore is tied for second on the Jets in target share with tight end Tyler Conklin at 14.3%, per 4for4. It is clear Moore is ramping up and getting more involved. Snag the talented wideout before it's too late.

D.J. Chark Jr., WR, Detroit Lions (40% rostered Yahoo / 22.9% rostered ESPN)

Chark has been tremendous over the last couple of weeks. According to 4for4, the veteran ranks second on the Lions in target share (17.3%), a team-leading 36% share of air yards, while averaging 96 receiving yards per game in that span. As exciting as the debut of rookie Jameson Williams has been, the Lions' wide receiver worthy of consideration here is Chark.

With how efficient the Lions' passing attack has been of late, adding Chark for your playoff run would be a wise move. Act now!

Damien Harris, RB, New England Patriots (55.7% rostered Yahoo / 50% rostered ESPN)

While my bosses here at Fantasy Six Pack used to have me write this piece on Sunday nights, I pivoted to waiting until Mondays to jot these thoughts down juuust in case weird injuries happened in primetime action on ESPN. This week is an example of why I do it this way.

Running back Rhamondre Stevenson left Monday night's contest against the Arizona Cardinals with an ankle injury, and while it is too soon to know how this will affect his availability going forward, it does make Harris a must-add. There isn't a whole heck of a lot I can say about the RB14 overall in PPR from last year that people don't already know. He's good!

He barely fits the criteria for this article, but Harris is just available enough that he needs to be the priority off of the wire in leagues where he's out there. In a world where Harris is sub-50% rostered across most platforms, he'd be at the tippy-top of this article.

Chigoziem Okonkwo, TE, Tennessee Titans (14% rostered Yahoo / 4.3% rostered ESPN)

Shoutout to the great state of Maryland. The rookie tight end out of the University of Maryland is someone I have stashed on many dynasty rosters but did not think would pop up on the redraft radar in 2022. Yet, here we are! I talked about him a bit on the most recent episode of The Lateral Show, and boy, did that pay off!

Over the last three weeks, Okonkwo is tied as the leader in target share on the Titans (17.3%) on a measly 47.4% route participation. Translation: he may not see the field a ton, but when he does, the Ryan Tannehill-led offense means business and likes to get the rookie involved.

Granted, the health (or lack thereof) of wide receiver Treylon Burks has helped Onkonkwo's case lately, but even as Burks gets healthier, those looking for tight end help should look no further.

Khalil Herbert, RB, Chicago Bears (37% rostered Yahoo / 28.2% rostered ESPN)

QUICK! Which Chicago Bears RB leads the team in rushing this year? Ah, too slow. Sorry.

  • David Montgomery: 160 attempts, 641 yards, four touchdowns (12 games played)
  • Khalil Herbert: 108 attempts, 643 yards, four touchdowns (ten games played)

Guess who's slated to return from IR soon, too? That's right, you clever readers: Khalil Herbert! A Week 15 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles does kind of suck, but I don't know that immediately thrusting the second-year back into your lineup would be an ideal situation, regardless. Anyhow, remember that Herbert is coming back soon. Be early! Be proactive!
