It’s the end of the regular season in the majority of NFL pools, which means it’s time to get down to business.
The 14th week of Goodell Circuit activities will be the last some teams will be given time off. It is time to abandon the players who are practically sure of no longer being part of your roster and to get their hands on substitutes who will have a real chance of helping you win.
Here are two players per offensive position to target on waivers:
-Taysom Hill, quarterback (available in 66% of Yahoo! leagues)
Even though he threw four interceptions in his last game, the New Orleans Saints player still had a lot of points. The fact that he runs a lot with the ball is particularly interesting for “poolers”. In addition, he will face the New York Jets this Sunday and he will not be the victim of so much theft in every game.
-Trevor Lawrence, quarterback (available in 71% of Yahoo! leagues)
Lawrence is to be targeted in leagues where you have to dress two pivots. The freshman isn’t playing particularly well these days, but his team will face rivals who have allowed quarterbacks plenty of points since the start of the season. Indeed, the Jacksonville Jaguars have an appointment with the Tennessee Titans, the Houston Texans and the Jets in their next three duels.
-Chuba Hubbard, running back (available in 24% of Yahoo! leagues)
Hubbard shouldn’t be available in most leagues. If it is in yours, do not miss such an opportunity. He will be called upon to replace Christian McCaffrey by the end of the season for the Carolina Panthers backfield. Few of the number 1 backers are still free at this point in the season. Ameer Abdullah will also be involved in the Panthers’ game plan. However, he represents a much less attractive option than his teammate.
-Tevis Coleman, running back (available in 59% of the Yahoo! leagues)
As long as Michael Carter is on the sidelines, Coleman will have the chance to show off for the Jets. Obviously, a player from such a dying team represents a risk. There aren’t many options for the running backs that can make an impact at this point in the campaign, however.
-Van Jefferson Jr., wide receiver (available in 32% of Yahoo! leagues)
During the last two meetings of the Los Angeles Rams, Jefferson Jr. has been heavily involved in his club’s game plan. He was notably targeted nine and eight times. The sophomore is a must-have for those needing a catcher to dress up on a daily basis.
-Russell Gage, wide receiver (available in 65% of Yahoo! leagues)
Gage saw 12 balloons sent in his direction last week. He caught 11 for gains of 130 yards. Such a used athlete deserves our attention. However, he fell victim to the Atlanta Falcons’ lack of production in the pay zone. Pledge is a valid option as a third receiver or “flex”.
-Tyler Conklin, tight end (available in 70% of Yahoo! leagues)
Since the start of hostilities in 2021, Conklin has always been a threat near the end zone. Desperate for a win, the Minnesota Vikings will need his services, especially if wide receiver Adam Thielen has to be absent with an ankle injury.
-Ricky Seals-Jones, tight end (available in 95% of Yahoo! leagues)
With the knee injury suffered by Logan Thomas last week, Seals-Jones will be the starter of the Washington football team for a little while. When he got this role earlier in the season, an average of six balls per game were destined for him.
