Fantasy Football 2015: Week 15 Waiver Wire Update
Taking a Look at the Week 15 Waiver Wire Trends
December 15, 2015
It’s Tuesday, and we’re coming out of another fantasy football week. That also means it’s time once again for us to take a closer look at the trends on the waiver wire and see if there are any interesting finds out there for Week 15. Let’s examine a few of the top names to see if anyone’s right for your team.
Denard Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: We’ve got a few injury-replacement guys on the waiver wire this week, and heading up that group is Robinson. He posted 14 rushes for 75 yards and a TD after starter T.J. Yeldon went down with a knee injury.
Depending on Yeldon’s status, Robinson looks like a nice RB2 heading into the Atlanta game. He was very effective as the Jags’ three-down back.

DuJuan Harris, RB, Seattle Seahawks: Harris is another injury-replacement RB, as he got most of the carries after Thomas Rawls went down due to an ankle injury in the Baltimore game.
Harris posted 18 carries for 42 yards, but also lost a fumble. He should be the primary back ahead of Fred Jackson this week, then after that we’ll see if Marshawn Lynch is ready to return or not.
Tim Hightower, RB, New Orleans Saints: Let’s check out one more running back before we move on today. Hightower put up 15.5 fantasy points in Week 14, with 28 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown.
Hightower had a couple of scores vultured away, but got all kinds of touches throughout the game. He seems like a very nice play against the Lions and beyond.
Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks: Lockett has emerged along with the Seattle passing game over the past month, and it’s paying off for fantasy owners. He hung six grabs for 104 yards and two touchdowns on the Ravens, his third outing of the last four that has produced at least 9.7 fantasy points.
Lockett is on quite a roll, and probably won’t slow down this week. He’ll get the Browns at home and is creeping into WR3/flex territory in fantasy.
Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Carolina Panthers: Feel like gambling this weekend? Ginn is your guy. He hauled in two catches for 120 yards and two touchdowns against the Falcons, giving him five grabs for 200 yards and four scores over the past two weeks.
Ginn has a reputation as a ball-dropper, and thus is a boom/bust fantasy play. He could be huge against the Giants this weekend, or he could fizzle.
