2015 NFL Fantasy Football Week 15: Waiver Wire Pickups

Here's Mike Dietrich's weekly spot to pick some widely available players in your 10- and 12-team fantasy football leagues.

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the semi-finals of your playoffs. I will call out a few guys that may be out there with good matchups in the upcoming week, of course assuming your league let's you make playoff moves.

QB

  • Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith: The Ravens are playing out the string, he should have a solid backend QB1 kind of game

RB

  • New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower: He got 28 touches last week based on workload alone. Worth a start this week.
  • Carolina Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne: Jonathan Stewart is questionable. If you have a way to make a move, this is a must.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson: It looks like T.J. Yeldon is out with the awful Falcons defense coming up.
  • Seattle Seahawks RB Bryce Brown: The next one up with Thomas Rawls now injured and Marshawn Lynch yet to return, Brown had some success back in Buffalo and is set up to carry the load the next week or two.
  • New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden: Consider this only if you are desperate. Still with LeGarrette Blount out, it's worth a flier.
  • New York Jets RB Bilal Powell: He has been a top 20 RB the past five weeks.

WR

TE

  • Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz: They have a nice schedule down the stretch and is a worthy injury replacement

Defense

Best of luck and hope you all win in your playoff games!
