Orleans Darkwa– 69% owned- Darkwa is a solid waiver wire pickup if you need a spot starter for a player on a bye. He’s the starting back, and should get a lot of carries against the Cheifs, due to the weak Giants pass attack.
Latavius Murray- 67.5% owned- Latavius Murray is starting to emerge into his old self. Since week 6, he’s been getting 15+ carries every week and he’s making the most of his opportunity averaging 9.9 points over that span. Going against the 29th ranked Rams run defense, Murray should be a good pickup.
Rishard Matthews- 67.1% owned- Matthews is one of Mariota’s favorite targets and should be relied on against a solid Steelers pass defense. Matthews has consistently put up points every week, averaging 9 fantasy points per game.
Cooper Kupp- 51% owned- On the Rams, everybody is bound to rack up fantasy points. Their high scoring offense is unstoppable and Jared Goff has a surplus of targets to choose from. Kupp has been averaging about 8.5 points per game, and should be targeted more with the Vikings cornerbacks covering Sammy Watkins and the red-hot Robert Woods.
Julius Thomas- 22.9% owned- Solid fantasy tight ends are hard to find on the waiver wire, but this week Julius Thomas could potentially be a solid pickup. Over the past two weeks, he’s been one of Jay Cutler’s favorite targets and going up against a week Buccaneers team, he should continue to get targets.
