2023 Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire

2023 Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire

Hello Fantasy nerds! NFL Week 13 has wrapped up, so it is time to discuss the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire!

What a wild ride Week 13 was. Unfortunately, it was a tough week for injuries. First things first we lost waiver wire darling Tank Dell for the season due to a leg injury. Then we lost Derrick Henry to concussion protocol and his status is up in the air for Monday's matchup.

Plus we had New England lose their best offensive player Rhamondre Stevenson who went down with an ankle injury that will shut him down for a few weeks. If you want to the full injury report, check out Michael Bonni's Injury Impact article.

At this point of the season, every fantasy team is dealing with injuries or draft-day busts on their teams. That means the waiver wire is more imperative this week, with only a week away from playoff time.

In this article, we will target players on the waiver wire who are under 50% on the FantasyPros consensus roster percentage.

At this point in the season, we have gotten a larger sample size, so finding that waiver wire darling can be harder because the cupboards are bare. I am here to help with that. Now let's jump into the 2023 Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire!

Top Waiver Adds

Tyjae Spears, RB, Tennessee Titans (33.5% Rostered)

Tyjae Spears has been in and out of this list this season. But if you have held onto him up to this point congrats. But for the leagues with him on the waiver wire he should be a priority target this week if Henry remains in concussion protocol.

With Henry getting banged up Spears saw 16 carries for 75 yards and saw six targets catching four of them for just 13 yards. That is just a massive workload, that we would expect to stay in this one.

The Titans have a matchup against the Miami Dolphins this week, which is a tougher matchup as they rank 9th in fantasy points allowed to running backs. But it is hard to argue against the workload he will see if Henry is out.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, New England Patriots (37.1% Rostered)

Elliot made my waiver wire article last week because of the six teams on bye. Well, if you ended up rostering him you ended up lucking out with him now being the lead back in New England. Zeke saw 17 carries for just 52 yards so it wasn't pretty on the ground.

But what we love to see is the work Eliott saw through the air this week. He caught four of five targets for 40 yards carrying him to a top-13 RB finish in PPR formats. As of now the other running backs on the roster are JaMycal Hasty who they claimed from Jacksonville, and veteran Ty Montgomery. This matchup with the Steelers will be an ugly one, so it looks like it should be a slow ground-out matchup, which works out in Elliot's favor.

Keaton Mitchell, RB, Baltimore Ravens (42.5% Rostered)

Keaton Mitchell is starting to get more and more work with the Baltimore Ravens, and we have forgotten about him with the Ravens being on bye last week. Mitchell played 33 snaps leading the backfield ahead of Justice Hill (20) and Gus Edwards (19).

It looks like all of these running have a role, as Keaton Mitchell is the explosive back, Edwards is the goal line back, and Justice Hill is the change of pace guy. Mitchell just seems so explosive as he is averaging over nine yards per carry through six games this season. We saw that against the Chargers when he got nine carries for 64 yards and caught both of his targets for 25 yards.

The matchup is a tough one against Aaron Donald and the Rams who have allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points to running backs this season. That's not ideal, but if you are in a pinch at the moment, it could be much worse.

Jayden Reed & Romeo Doubs, WR, Green Bay Packers (49.8% & 46.1% Rostered)

Injuries have been the main topic of this article this week, and Christain Watson went down with what looked like a non-contact hamstring injury. Both Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed should have been rosterd already, but now they are both must-haves for your roster.

Watson missed the first three weeks of the season and we saw what Doubs and Reed could do in his absence. Doubs saw 20 targets and caught three touchdowns finishing as WR14, WR83, and WR17 in PPR formats. Jayden Reed was less productive with 20 targets as well finishing WR20 in Week 2 but finishing outside the top 50 the other two weeks. However, Reed has been coming on strong as of late finishing as a top-25 wide receiver in three of his past five games.

These two also have a great matchup against the New York Giants who have allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Elijah Moore, WR, Cleveland Browns (38.7% Rostered)

I have been pounding the table for weeks for Elijah Moore, and all it took for him to have a big game was Joe Flacco taking over in Cleveland. Flacco was the quarterback in New York when we saw Moore break out in his rookie season.

Then in one week with Flacco in Cleveland Moore saw a season-high 12 targets catching four of them for a season-high 83 yards finishing as a top-30 wide receiver this week. That was Moore's fourth straight game with at least seven targets and his ninth on the season. Moore has a solid role in this Browns offense.

Looking at the matchup this week for the Browns wide receivers and it is a good one against the Jaguars. Jacksonville has a good defense, but they have allowed the seventh most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season.

Noah Brown, WR, Houston Texans (37.2% Rostered)

This one is a bit more scary of a play this week but it could pay off and that is Noah Brown. Unfortunately, Tank Dell went down with a leg injury as he was starting to emerge as the alpha wide receiver in this offense. Noah Brown has struggled with injuries all season long missing six games.

When Brown is on the field, his ceiling is as high as anybody. Brown has finished as WR3 and WR6 in two of the six games he has played in. This offense is also humming with rookie CJ Stroud running the show, and you want a piece of it.

Unfortunately, this is sketchy because they take on the Jets who have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. But with a player like Noah Brown, all it takes is one play to save his fantasy week. If you are looking for a massive ceiling play this week, Brown is your guy.
