You may have noticed1 that we did not publish a Live by the Waiver post last week. I assure you, we wanted to but, to be frank, we’re running out of players we can talk about each week and we’re getting pretty damn tired of telling y’all to pick up Robby Anderson. But with injuries to DeShaun Watson and a boatload of trades shaking things up this week, we’re here to point out a few undervalued fantasy assets that might still be available in your league.
Robby Anderson, WR, NYJ – Owned in 46.3% of leagues
Fuck, for real? Like, I bring him up in the opener and you’d think I’d have the decency to not talk about him anymore. But seriously, if you need a Flex play, pick this dude up. Over the last four weeks,2 Anderson has put up double digits in PPR scoring and has scored three times. Dude’s legit…and so are the Jets.
Eli Manning, QB, NYG – Owned in 45.9% of leagues
With Watson and Aaron Rodgers out for the foreseeable future, owners are desperate to find someone they can rely on to put up points. And while we’re not what you’d call fans of the youngest Manning, the Giants are looking at some favorable matchups up ahead. After Week 9, the Giants don’t play another team that ranks in the top third of the league for points given up to WRs. Plus Sterling Shepard is coming back this week, giving Manning a much needed additional route runner.
Tyler Lockett, WR, SEA – Owned in 43.1% of leagues
Since the start of the season, Lockett has been targeted at least three times in each game he’s played and has a solid catch rate of 66.7%. Two catches a game might not seem like a lot, especially in PPR, but Lockett is tied for the lead on Seattle for vertical targets, meaning he’s getting the ball deep. He’s averaging about 13.3 yards per catch and is even getting some rushes, running the ball in each of the last four games. He might not be putting up consistent numbers, but he’s definitely a threat and should be on your radar.
Corey Davis, WR, TEN – Owned in 30.4% of leagues
Davis is finally making his way back on to the gridiron. He’s been injured since the second week of the season, and the rookie has been anxious to get back to playing. Pick him up now before people remember that he caught six balls in his first game.
C.J Prosise, RB, SEA
J.D. Mckissic, RB, SEA
Thomas Rawls, RB, SEA
Eddie Lacy, RB, SEA
You know what, maybe you’re better off not picking up a Seattle RB. Seriously, can anyone tell me what’s going on out there? What a fucking mess.
