  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • HOU Keke Coutee (30% owned) vs TEN
      • Demaryius Thomas put up a GOOSE on 1 target, while Keke saw NINE targets. He turned those targets into 5 catches for 77 yards.
    • DEN Courtland Sutton (56% owned) vs PIT
      • Probably owned but a top add at WR if not.
    • CHI Anthony Miller (42% owned) @DET
      • Has scored 5 times in past 8 games
    • CHI Taylor Gabriel (31% owned) @DET
    • LAR Josh Reynolds (43% owned) on Bye
      • On Bye in Week 12, but scored another TD filling in for Kupp.
    • CAR D.J. Moore (39% owned) vs SEA
    • NO Tre’Quan Smith (26% owned) vs ATL
      • BIG game in Week 11, after many fantasy owners had dropped him. He obviously has boom potential in this offense. However, he did miss practice on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday’s practice report will be a telling sign.
  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • BAL Gus Edwards (3% owned) vs OAK
      • Hop on the Gus Bus if you need someone at RB. The Ravens “rode the hot hand” in Week 11 giving Gus 17 carries for 115 yards and a TD. However, the Ravens could certainly pivot back to more of a mix between Edwards, Alex Collins, Javorius Allen, newly-acquired Ty Montgomery, and Kenneth Dixon (when he’s back from IR) anytime.
    • NYJ Elijah McGuire (14% owned) vs NE
    • PHI Josh Adams (32% owned) vs NYG
      • Mike’s Rising Star pick. He looks like the best runner on the Eagles and also had 6 targets in Week 11 with a terrible game script.
    • OAK Jalen Richard (44% owned) @BAL
    • OAK DeAndré Washington (0% owned) @BAL
      • Doug Martin dealing with an ankle injury. May not miss anytime though.
    • DET Theo Riddick (32% owned) vs CHI
    • DET LeGarrette Blount (9% owned) vs CHI
      • With Kerryon Johnson not expected to play on Thanksgiving vs the Bears, that could mean more opportunity for Theo Riddick and Blount. Blount has been terrible so far this season, but Theo could be a solid PPR play.
    • DEN Royce Freeman (52% owned) vs PIT
    • MIA Frank Gore (25% owned) @IND
      • Returning from Bye. “He is infinite. He is Gore.”
  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • DEN Jeff Heuerman (24% owned) vs PIT
    • PIT Vance McDonald (61% owned) @DEN
      • Probably owned but worth checking
    • TB Cameron Brate (21% owned) vs SF
      • With Jameis Winston back at QB for the Buccaneers and O.J. Howard has been ruled out for the season. Brate is a great TE add this week and rest of season.
    • LAR Gerald Everett (3% owned) on Bye
      • BIG game against the Chiefs in Week 11 going 3/49/2 on 4 targets.
    • NYJ Chris Herndon (7% owned) vs NYJ
    • TEN Jonnu Smith (7% owned) @HOU
    • LAC Antonio Gates (3% owned) vs ARI
