Week 15 Playoff Waiver Wire Pickups
[picappgallerysingle id="10374242"]The second week of the fantasy football playoffs is coming up, and hopefully last week was a success for your squad. Players like Aaron Rodgers hurt fantasy owners while Darren McFadden was a hero with his huge performance against the Jaguars. For those of you that need some help due to ineffective play or injury, keep the names below in mind.
Tim Hightower @ Panthers: Many fantasy owners gave up on the Cardinals’ offense a long time ago and Tim Hightower may still be available in various leagues. Against the Broncos, Hightower posted 148 yards and two touchdown and he gets the Panthers this week. Look for Hightower to have a strong game for the second contest in a row.
Ryan Torain: The problem for Ryan Torain hasn’t been his talent or his play on the field but his health has killed his ability to be a star name in fantasy football. Against the Buccaneers, Torain finally returned from a hamstring injury and ran for 172 yards on eighteen carries. Look for Torain to be a useful flex play option going forward.
Arrelious Benn: With fellow rookie Mike Williams banged up, Arrelious Benn became the top option in the passing game for Josh Freeman against the Redskins. Benn posted an explosive 122 yards receiving on only four receptions. Look for Benn to be the continued top target going forward if Williams should stay slowed.
Falcons: Look for Atlanta to continue their success on defense as they play against a shaky Seahawks offense this week. The Falcons will continue their winning ways and Matt Hasselbeck is making poor decisions in the passing game with backup receivers playing.
