2015 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 17

Bill Steicher - USA Today Sports
The last week of the regular season is upon us and many of you are fighting for your championships.  There are a number of players at QB, RB, WR, and TE to consider as starters and spot-starters.  Good luck in your championships; it has been a fun year and thanks again for your support.

Must Grab:

Karlos Williams (RB, BUF) - as long as Lesean McCoy is on the sideline then Williams will get to start.  He is solid in TD only leagues and tends to find the end-zone weekly.  He is a solid pick-up this week for your championship game.

Kirk Cousins (QB, WAS) - he has been on a killer run the last couple weeks; he is has the upside in a QB you are looking for in your championship game.  If have been using an under-performing QB then it's time to gamble a bit and go with Cousins for the final game.

Spot-Starters:

Bilal Powell (RB, NYJ) - he has been on a rampage recently and has looked good on the ground and through the air.  I expect his success to continue into next week; he presents TD as well as PPR upside.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, NYJ) - he has been on this list weekly and continues to fill-in nicely for any under-performing QB's or injured QBs.

Markus Wheaton (WR, PIT) - he is only worth looking at in PPR leagues and does offer some TD upside; he is not the best spot-starter but for deeper leagues and can be utilized.

Ryan Mathews (RB, PHI) - not available in too many leagues, but he has the TD upside you are looking for in the final week and will be utilized in the red-zone.

Devante Parker (WR, MIA) - Miami will continue to get the ball to Parker and he presents some of the most upside of any WR listed here.  He is a solid WR to pick-up and start next week.

Dontrelle Inman (WR, SD) - with so many injured players in San Diego Inman has been given the opportunity to catch balls; he presents upside in PPR leagues.

Kyle Rudolph (TE, MIN) - solid TD this weekend and he has been getting between three to six catches a week; he is a safer TE with some upside if you need the help.

DuJuan Harris (RB, SF) - you need to keep an eye on the injury report to see if Harris will be getting another start, but he filled in nicely and if he starts again you could expect another 75 yards with TD upside next week.

Cameron Artis-Payne (RB, CAR) - splitting time with Whitaker, but he is getting some carries and has potential to put up usable numbers, especially if Carolina gets a solid lead and turns to the ground game.  He is a nice spot-starter.

Keshawn Martin (WR, NE) - with the injuries to the WR's in New England it has given Martin the opportunity to start.  He is not someone I am running out to grab, but if you are in a very deep PPR league then you can consider him.

Nate Washington (WR, HOU) - is being targeted by Weedon, but at this point he is another WR that I would only use in a dire situation.

Jermaine Kearse (WR, SEA) - he is a player that is a huge gamble, but gives the upside that you are looking for in an offense that spreads the ball around.

Terrance Williams (WR, DAL) - with Dez Bryant out due to injury Williams is the lead WR in Dallas.  He doesn't have a great QB throwing his way, but should be able to get four to seven catches next week with some TD upside.

Dorial Green-Beckham (WR, TEN) - Kendall Wright is injured again and Green-Beckham is a huge target with red-zone potential as well.  The Titans should bounce-back next week against the Colts, but it will still be tough.

Zach Ertz (TE, PHI) - PPR league owners should consider Ertz as Sam Bradford does like to look his way and is typically good for three to six catches a week with some TD upside.

Eric Ebron (TE, DET) - the thing that makes Ebron interesting is his red-zone play and if you are in a deep TD only league and hurting at TE then Ebron could fill-in for you.

Zach Miller (TE, CHI) - he is my favorite TE on this list and is a bigger target as long as Alshon Jeffery is sidelined.  He is a solid spot-starter for both PPR and TD leagues.

Isaiah Crowell (RB, CLE) - if you are in a TD only league and looking or a RB that is used in the red-zone then Crowell should fit in nicely for your championship game.

Charles Sims (RB, TB) - He has a tough match-up next week with the Panthers, so you will have to temper your expectations, but if you are in a PPR league he does have the ability to produce usable fantasy numbers.

Mike Gillislee (RB, BUF) - this kid has some serious speed and he has big play potential.  He can easily be thrown the ball and run for a ton of yards for a TD on any given play.  He is someone with tons of upside and if you are looking to gamble next week then Gillislee is a player that can put up some serious points.

Watch:

Brandon Weeden (QB, HOU) - he was able to find the end-zone a number of times and pick apart the Titans.  He is only worth consideration in super deep leagues that start two QB's otherwise you can just keep an eye on him.
