community news, Fantasy football waiver wire Week 14: Patrick Laird, Russell Gage

If you’re reading this, congratulations! That means you’ve likely made the playoffs and are looking to improve your team for a championship run. There will be less competition on the waiver wire going forward, but those still alive will be paying very close attention to all of the potential options. Below are players I recommend adding who are owned in fewer than 40% of leagues on Yahoo and/or ESPN. All point totals referenced are for PPR leagues.

Quarterbacks

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins

FitzMagic just won’t go away. The 37-year-old led the Dolphins past the Eagles on Sunday with 365 yards and three touchdowns. It was Fitzpatrick’s second straight 23-plus point performance after having 259 total yards and three total touchdowns against the Browns in Week 12. The Dolphins will spend the next two weeks in the New York area, taking on the Jets this week. It’s a good, but not great, matchup since the Jets’ defense plays better as a whole at home, but Fitzpatrick put up 288 yards and three touchdowns against them in Week 9 (23.7 fantasy points). Sam Darnold typically plays better at home, so this game could be a sneaky shootout. If you’re desperate, maybe a little FitzMagic can get you by.

Thanks for watching!

Sam Darnold, New York Jets

A lot of people are jumping off the Darnold hype train after his poor performance against the Bengals in Week 13. But he returns home and has an awesome matchup against the Dolphins this week. Miami ranks as one of the five worst defenses in the NFL against fantasy QBs and has really struggled lately. They just allowed 24.4 fantasy points to Carson Wentz after allowing 33.8 points to Josh Allen and 23.5 points to Baker Mayfield in the two prior weeks. Darnold has been a better QB at home so far in his career and had nine total touchdowns and an average of 25.4 fantasy points per game in the three weeks prior to Week 13. He’s worth throwing out there again if the weather is better at the Meadowlands this week.
