Fantasy Football Week 14: Add and Drop

Eddie Brown, The San Diego Union-Tribune on

Published in Football

Each week I'll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define "widely available" as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster.

Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week.

Here's my best bets off the waiver wire for Week 14:


— QB Taysom Hill, Saints (ESPN: 36%; Yahoo: 34%): I wrote here last week Hill had top-10 upside. He threw four interceptions, completed 46 percent of his 41 pass attempts and played most of the game with a torn tendon in his middle finger against the Cowboys ... and ended up QB4. Only Kyler Murray, Tom Brady and Justin Herbert produced more for their fantasy investors.

— RB Dontrell Hilliard, Titans (ESPN: 36%; Yahoo: 41%): Hilliard has thrived with an average of 14 touches the last two games. He's produced 215 total yards and a touchdown with nine receptions. Both he and D'Onta Foreman (ESPN: 34%; Yahoo: 41%) deserve to be rostered — Foreman finished with 109 rushing yards against the Patriots — and are widely available thanks to a bye in Week 13. It remains to be seen how Jeremy McNichols (ESPN: 11%; Yahoo: 11%) will factor in once he's healthy.


— WR Van Jefferson, Rams (ESPN: 64%; Yahoo: 68%): Jefferson should be universally rostered. He's WR22 in standard leagues (WR26 in PPR) since Robert Woods was lost for the season. Like Woods, he's operating out of the slot mostly and has received at least seven targets in four straight games.

— TE Ricky Seals-Jones, Football Team (ESPN: 6%; Yahoo: 5%): After initially believing Logan Thomas suffered an ACL tear on Sunday, an MRI revealed that wasn't the case. Thomas will still likely miss some time which makes Seals-Jones a borderline starting option until he returns.

— WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions (ESPN: 7%; Yahoo: 6%): St. Brown had the best game of his rookie season in Detroit's first victory of 2021 with 86 yards on 10 receptions (12 targets) and a touchdown. He's WR24 in PPR since Week 10.

— BONUS: RB Sony Michel, Rams (ESPN: 61%; Yahoo: 68%): Michel looked like a bell-cow ball-carrier against the Jaguars with Darrell Henderson Jr. active. Henderson is still dealing with a thigh injury and isn't known as a quick healer, but there's a chance Michel will see a bigger volume going forward regardless of Henderson's health and he's still available in around a third of leagues.
