It all started back in spring or the summer. All the mock drafts, research, sleeper articles, and strategy advice. The countless hours spent preparing for this very scenario: survive until Week 17. Make it to the finals.

Congratulations on advancing through what will undoubtedly go down the most challenging season ever. It took a special effort to navigate the myriad injuries, pandemics, and other calamities that made 2021 so complex.

Now, the only thing left is to give your squad the best chance you can in wrapping up that final victory. Knowing which fantasy football free agents to target on the waiver wire is one of the best ways you can do that. Here are some of the players to target ahead of the 2021 finale.

FAAB denote Free Agent Acquisition Budget

Boston Scott (RB) Philadelphia Eagles (35% FAAB) – Miles Sanders has already been ruled out this week with a broken hand and Jordan Howard is dealing with a shoulder injury. After Sanders exited Sunday’s victory, Scott got a dozen carries including a goal-line plunge, and could be in for a big role this week if Howard is also ruled out.

Dare Ogunbowale (RB) Jacksonville Jaguars (25% FAAB) – After James Robinson tore his Achilles, Ogunbowale came in and took over Robinson’s lead dog role, racking up 19 touches in relief. With Robinson out, Ogunbowale should maintain a very high snap rate, including plenty of targets against New England’s stout run defense…

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 16

Emerging from that Week 15 with a fantasy football playoff victory took immense skills or luck. Either way, consider yourself fortunate if you were able to navigate that slate and move on to Week 16. To win one more, you’ll likely need reinforcement after last week’s debacle. Here are some of the key fantasy football […]

Emerging from that Week 15 with a fantasy football playoff victory took immense skills or luck. Either way, consider yourself fortunate if you were able to navigate that slate and move on to Week 16.

To win one more, you’ll likely need reinforcement after last week’s debacle. Here are some of the key fantasy football free agents to target heading into the semi-finals.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

Ronald Jones (RB) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (65% FAAB) – This is what you saved up some of your FAAB for. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) expected to miss the remainder of the fantasy season, Jones is now in prime position to see 15 touches for a Bucs’ offense that should be motivated to rebound quickly against the Panthers. Jones isn’t much of a receiver but looked more explosive as a runner Sunday night. View Jones as a locked-in Weekly RB2 moving forward and try to add him everywhere you can.

Duke Johnson (RB) Miami Dolphins (40% FAAB) –

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 15

Congratulations on making it to the fantasy football postseason. Undoubtedly, proactive waiver wire choices were a big help in that achievement, especially in a season as wild as 2021. Now that we’re in a do-or-die mode, each remaining FAAB dollar is more valuable than ever. Let’s take a look at some of the key free […]

Congratulations on making it to the fantasy football postseason. Undoubtedly, proactive waiver wire choices were a big help in that achievement, especially in a season as wild as 2021.

Now that we’re in do-or-die mode, each remaining FAAB dollar is more valuable than ever. Let’s take a look at some of the key free agents ahead of Week 15 and figure out how much of that remaining budget we should use.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget 

Rashaad Penny (RB) Seattle Seahawks (40% FAAB) – The talent has always been there but Penny has always struggled to stay healthy. Week 14 delivered on that skillset as Penny took lead back duties for the Seahawks and turned 35 snaps into 17 touches, 138 yards, and two scores. With Adrian Peterson inactive and Alex Collins playing just 14 snaps, Penny is poised to be a real difference-maker while healthy and is worth a substantial FAAB bid.

D’Onta Foreman (RB) Tennessee Titans (10% FAAB) – Tennessee continues to trot out a two or three-man backfield but Foreman appears to be the easy choice in fantasy formats. Even though he was out-snapped by Dontrell Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols…

The fantasy playoffs are right around the corner. Now is the time to make free agent moves to secure must-win late-season victories, or beef up your bench for the postseason run.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget

Russell Gage (WR) Atlanta Falcons (8% FAAB) – Still available in over three-quarters of ESPN fantasy leagues, Gage has averaged nine targets per game over Atlanta’s past three contests and just had a season-best 11 grabs and 130 yards against Tampa. Gage is unquestionably Atlant’s No. 1 wideout and offers weekly WR3 value.

Ricky Seals-Jones (TE) Washington Football Team (7% FAAB) – Logan Thomas‘s return to the lineup didn’t last long. With Thomas projected to be back on the shelf for an extensive amount of time…

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 13

The Thanksgiving slate certainly had more than its fair share of drama and unexpected performances but out of that chaos comes opportunity. A slew of injuries has opened the door for several key free agent players that might be available on your league’s waiver wire.

Here are the key free agent players to target ahead of Week 13, with remaining FAAB recommendations.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Acquisition Budget 

Alexander Mattison (RB) Minnesota Vikings (75% FAAB) – Odds are that Mattison is already rostered in your league, but if he happens to be available, Mattison offers league-winning upside down the stretch. Mattison has routinely shined in the featured role when given opportunities and should have multiple weeks to star as Davlin Cook is sidelined multiple weeks by shoulder injuries. If Mattison is available in your league, be prepared to make an aggressive bid to add a potential RB1 to your roster.

Chuba Hubbard (RB) Carolina Panthers (55% FAAB) – Like the Vikings, the Panthers also lost their starting running back, this time Christian McCaffrey for the remainder of 2021. When CMC miss several weeks earlier this season, Hubbard did a fine job in relief, averaging 12.9 PPR points per start. At this point…
