Week 14 IDP Waiver Wire Pickups - NFL Fantasy Football

Immediate Pickups

Linebackers
(Some LBs to point out who were on this list before and should no longer be on your Waiver Wire are NaVorro Bowman, Rolando McClain, Ray Maualuga, Donald Butler, Daryl Smith, Wesley Woodyard, Paris Lenon, Thomas Howard, James Farrior, Brooks Reed, Kevin Burnett, Chris Chamberlain, Colin McCarthy, Perry Riley. If they are still on your Wire, pick up those guys before anyone listed below)

Mario Haggan (LB, Den) – Filling in for the injured Von Miller, Haggan posted 7 solos, 5 assists, a pass deflection and had an INT for a touchdown. What an incredible game! And if Miller is limited with his surgically repaired hand again, Haggan faces Chicago next, who threw 3 INTs and gave up 7 sacks in Week Thirteen.

Larry Grant (LB, SF) – This recommendation all depends on how bad Patrick Willis, is injured, but Grant finished the game with 5 solos, an assist and a sack.

D.J. Smith (LB, GB) – If Desmond Bishop can’t go again Week Fourteen, Smith is a decent play vs. Oakland. He finished his first full-time game with 6 solos and 2 assists. Those numbers are nowhere near what you would get out of Bishop, but they are serviceable as your number five linebacker.

Omar Gaither (LB, Car) – I don’t know if he’ll be back from his injury that has kept in out a game and a half, but watch the injury reports this week because he could be a sneaky start against Atlanta Week Fourteen. Other than James Anderson, he’s Carolina’s only other three down back and would get a lot of opportunities in the Atlanta matchup to rack up tackles.

Justin Houston (LB, KC) – Three sacks, 7 solo tackles and a pass deflection was the stat line for Houston Week Thirteen. This may not be something you can trust moving forward, but this stat line cannot be ignored. Note: This is the riskiest guy on the list this week as I don’t see him giving a repeat performance, but he is a “swing for the fences” guy if you truly have no one else to plug in.


Defensive Linemen
(Some DLs to point out who were on this before and should no longer be on your Waiver Wire are Kyle Vanden Bosch, Jabaal Sheard, Ahtyba Rubin, Andre Carter, Aldon Smith, Jeremy Mincey, Isreal Idonije, Greg Hardy, Carlos Dunlap, Chris Long, DT Phillip Taylor, DT Antonio Garay, DT Geno Atkins, DT Henry Melton, DE Robert Quinn. If they are still on your Wire, pick up those guys before anyone listed below)

Jurrell Casey (DT, Ten) – He’s been such a consistent tackler, especially as a defensive tackle. He put up 5 solos Week Thirteen.

Linval Joseph (DT, NYG) – Joseph went off with 9 solos vs. Green Bay Week Thirteen! Green Bay is very difficult to sack, but they face the Cowboys next, who just gave up 5 sacks so if Joseph can get at least 4 solos and add a sack onto that, he would really help out your team.

John Henderson (DT, Oak) – As I just mentioned above, Linval Joseph got 9 solos vs. Green Bay. Now Henderson faces Green Bay in Week Fourteen and he’s coming off a 6 solo tackle game. I like his odds to have another nice day.

Vince Wilfork (NT, NE) – Wilfork had 5 solos, 5 assists and a sack Week Thirteen and faces the Redskins Week Fourteen, who are becoming notorious for sacks and poor line play. He’s definitely worth a look if you’re in the market for a replacement.



Defensive Backs
(Some DBs to point out who were on this list before and should no longer be on your Waiver Wire are Morgan Burnett, Kam Chancellor, Dashon Goldson, Jon McGraw, Eric Smith, Sean Jones, George Wilson(or Da’Norris Searcy), Reggie Nelson, Amari Spievey, Charles Godfrey, Justin King, Charlie Peprah, Tanard Jackson, Ryan Clark, Lardarius Webb, Prince Amukamara. If they are still on your wire, pick up those guys before anyone listed below.)

Craig Dahl (SS, Stl) – If Darian Stewart is out again next week, find a way to get Dahl into your lineup vs. Seattle. He has the capability to put up better numbers than any of the guys I have listed above. He has a consistent IDP reputation of putting up huge tackle numbers over the years and he proved that again this week with 11 solos and 2 assists.

James Sanders (SS, Atl) – His 10 solos and a fumble recovery makes the second week in a row that he’s had a solid game filling in for the injured William Moore (quadriceps). If Moore is out again when Atlanta faces Carolina, get Sanders in your lineup as a solid DB2.

Craig Steltz (SS, Chi) – Starting strong safety Major Wright went down with a shoulder injury and Steltz jumped in and posted 9 solos and an assist in limited action. He’s a little risky to use going into your playoff run, but he also might be the missing spark you need to push you into the playoffs.

Glover Quin (S/CB, Hou) – For the second week in a row, he’s one of the top two leading tacklers on his team. Unfortunately, they are not “monster” IDP numbers as he averaging 5 solos a week as a starter. What makes him enticing in Yahoo leagues is he is listed as a cornerback, but plays the more tackle-heavy safety position. So he’s a sneaky play as your CB2.
