Week fourteen of the 2023 NFL season is over and this is where boys become men. All your hard work drafting has been for naught. Your roster has taken its lumps, but if you play the next couple of weeks right, a championship can still be had. We are late enough in the season that even the waiver wire can only do so much. If you were not active before, it may be too little, too late. I’m going to provide you with the best options available. If I don’t mention someone whom you think I should be talking about, just know there are many reasons why I overlooked them. Maybe they are owned in most leagues. Maybe they are so bad I don’t even consider them. Maybe it’s because your opinions cannot be trusted. After all, you are here. So let us examine who our best week fifteen waiver wire players for your championship run are…
Week Fifteen Waiver Wire QBs
Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (45% rostered)
This is pretty easy. The Washington Commanders are the worst pass defense in football. If you need a quarterback, and based on the last month you absolutely do, then Matt Stafford is probably the best possible streaming option for you.
Week Fifteen Waiver Wire RBs
Chase Brown, Cincinnati Bengals (3% rostered)
Full disclosure. Chase Brown was my number three running back in this draft class. I liked him almost as much as I liked Gibbs and Bijan. If you watched Brown have 105 all-purpose yards and 1 touchdown in week 14 against Jacksonville, you know why. The dude is electric. Since he has been hurt for most of the year, we haven’t gotten to see Brown play. I’m not sure what his usage will look like going forward, but the big play potential for him is worth grabbing.
Jerick McKinnon, Kansas City Chiefs (35% rostered)
Last year, Jerick McKinnon was a league winner in the fantasy playoffs. With Isaiah Pacheco hurt, McKinnon ended up with 28 all-purpose yards and 1 touchdown in week 14. If Pacheco misses extended time, McKinnon could be a league winner. Time is a flat circle.
Week Fifteen Waiver Wire WRs
Noah Brown, Houston Texans (39% rostered)
With Tank Dell out for the season and Nico Collins hurt, Noah Brown might be one of the only receivers left on one of the most explosive offenses in football. While Brown had a bad week 14, he was playing the New York Jets. All wide receivers have a bad day against them. Brown has the potential to see lots of targets in one of the highest passing volume offenses in football. Brown also has two really strong match-ups in the fantasy playoffs.
Odell Beckham Jr., Baltimore Ravens (42% rostered)
In week 14, Beckham had 4 catches for 97 yards and 1 touchdown. Odell Beckham has double-digit fantasy points in 4 of his last 5 games. Odell Beckham plays for the best team in the AFC. Odell Beckham has 2 plus playoff matchups. Get Odell Beckham.
