6 Waiver Wire Adds for Week 15: Playoffs

Jacob Adler breaks down the top players on the fantasy football waiver wire for Week 15.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

If you're reading this, you're probably in the playoffs. If that is the case, congratulations! It's been a long season filled with injuries, and those injuries didn't stop in Week 13 as Andy Dalton, Thomas Rawls, Tyler Eifert, and many others went down.

There aren't any quarterbacks or tight ends that I felt strongly about to recommend here. Who you add at those spots will depend on who is available. Good luck!

Tyler Lockett

Is this the emergence of Tyler Lockett that we've been waiting for all season? In Week 13, he posted seven catches for 90 yards at Minnesota and wrecked the Ravens' defense in Week 14 for 104 yards and two touchdowns. It's fair to argue game flow could get in the way at home against a horrid Browns team, but the Ravens game this past week showed the Seahawks could still air it out with a big lead.

Denard Robinson

With TJ Yeldon on the shelf, Denard Robinson racked up 75 yards and a touchdown in relief against the Colts. I'm not a fan, but Robinson deserves to be owned in most leagues given the volume he should get.

DuJuan Harris

After Thomas Rawls suffered a season-ending ankle injury, DuJuan Harris looks like the next man up for the Seattle Seahawks at the running back position. He'll fight with Bryce Brown for carries, which will cloud his forecast for this weekend in a juicy matchup with the Browns at home, but is an upside play that should be owned in all leagues. Fred Jackson is expected to keep a limited role as the passing-game back.

Ted Ginn Jr.

Regression alert!? Ted Ginn Jr. made the most of his three targets versus the Atlanta Falcons, catching two for touchdowns and totaling 120 receiving yards on the day. That follows up his 80-yard, two-touchdown game in New Orleans. The Giants can get burned and it wouldn't surprise me if Ginn breaks off a long catch. Volume is a concern, though.

Willie Snead

Hopefully over his injury, Willie Snead had his first game over 10 PPR points since Week 9 with a seven-catch, 122-yard line against Tampa Bay. The Saints face Detroit, Jacksonville, and Atlanta over the remainder of the regular season, and Snead will be a strong play in each matchup if he stays on the field.

Tim Hightower

28 rushes for 85 yards and a touchdown seems like a reasonable ceiling for Tim Hightower. The Detroit Lions are a tougher run defense than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Hightower is likely nothing more than a touchdown play. He's low-floor, moderate-ceiling.
