The fantasy season is coming to a close and as a result, the pickings on waivers are slim. With that said, there are still players out there that have the ability to help your team. Every week, there are players that sit unclaimed who are good for nine or ten points in your lineup. This is something that happens with high frequency, so make sure to be alert when looking at your options.
Jarvis Landry, WR Dolphins: In a ridiculous rookie receiver class, Landry is going under the radar. He has been a huge addition to the Dolphins passing attack and already has the trust of Ryan Tannehill. With 49 catches for 450 yards and five touchdowns, Landry has had value as a WR3 (especially in PPR), but could have a big performance this week. With the Jets looking to limit Mike Wallace’s big play ability, Landry will be able to work over the middle. If you need a wideout, he’s probably available and could be good for a double digit point week.
Kenny Stills, WR Saints: Last year, Stills had the old Devery Henderson/Robert Meachem role in the Saints offense. He ran deep routes both frequently and efficiently. With Brandin Cooks out for the year, Stills is now running a more complete route tree. The effect has already paid off. Last night, Stills caught eight of the nine balls thrown his way for 98 yards. With favorable matchups down the stretch, Stills could play a big role for owners the rest of the way.
Dan Herron, RB Colts: With Ahmad Bradshaw out, many expected Trent Richardson to draw the start in the backfield. Instead, Herron got the start and made the most of it. On 17 touches, Herron recorded 96 yards. He showed his receiving chops as well with five of those being receptions. If you’re looking for a back with a definite role who has upside, it is worth giving the man known as “Boom” a look.
