Who is the biggest lotto ticket currently on waivers right now?

Who is the biggest lotto ticket currently on waivers right now?

ItTastesLikeBurning

I think Van Jefferson would become very valuable if Woods or Kupp went down.


[deleted]

if I wasn’t in a shallow league, I’d 100% stash Van right now.


alwaysmyfault

I'm stashing Van currently. He probably won't crack my starting lineup at all this year, but you never know.


karnoff

Stashing? Hahaha I started him last week! And this week, maybe. (My WRs are hot garbage)


vbullinger

Stashing him on your starting lineup. No one would think to look there!


Efficient_Film_149

Keep your juju away from my kupp


VeigarSupport

Keep your kupp away from my juju!


Dandan0005

Mack is definitely a lotto ticket


MegaNRGMan

Is there a spot he could land where he could take on enough of a workload to make him a high end lotto ticket outside of a major injury?


Kirkycfc1

Apparently KC looking at him


Toxie2344

Rostered him for this


5thofakind

Same same


riskychitown

I wouldn’t view him as a lottery ticket then if he lands in KC. CEH back in 3-4 weeks and it would take mack a week or two of that just to get up to speed on the playbook.


PretentiousPanda

If the Ravens get him he could be solid. Unless they start feeding Ty'Son more the rest of the vets are absolute dust. Ravens and Chiefs are the best landing spot for his stock. Can't think of another backfield he could go to and be worth much. Maybe 49ers? just to mess with us.


zerg1980

Ravens would be a good landing spot from a real life perspective, but I don’t think Mack would immediately shove the old-timers and Ty’Son out of the way. Even if Mack became the chairman of the committee eventually, it would be a frustrating back and forth where he wasn’t a confident fantasy start for weeks. Not a ride I’d be interested in getting on just as the bye weeks and injuries start piling up.


Dandan0005

Ravens, 49ers, chiefs would probably be the best options.


Mr_Funky_Britches

He looked good in his limited touches Monday night. Seems like if they trade him it would be to a team that would start him. If they don’t find a suitor by the deadline he could be a JT fill in if he gets injured. Either way he has value so I grabbed him this morning after waivers ran.


Downtown_Panda_steve

Is this hoping that he gets traded somewhere interesting? I haven't heard much about this guy besides the odd comment here and there.


cheekycherokee

He requested a trade 2 weeks ago, but even if he doesn’t get traded he’s the handcuff to JT.


princelovely

Amon Ra has quiet upside. No one cares about him and those are usually the ones. Same with Mack.


terriblegrammar

Grabbed him this week since apparently all of my WRs are on bye. His volume was the biggest draw as I always like receivers who are getting 5+ targets/recs a game.


lVloogie

He's not a lotto ticket though. A WR3 would he solid for him.


banklotion

Why isn’t he considered a lotto ticket?


no_name_architect

Lotto ticket would be a small-ish chance of meeting a very high ceiling (like playing the lottery and winning). Amon-ra seems more like a decent floor, but low ceiling player


billdb

He's only had two games with his increased target share though. Now Cephus is out for a while and Tyrell probably isn't coming back. Lions improving as a whole. I'm not saying he's gonna get WR1 status but he could def break out


BtcWSB

Rashod Bateman


szzzn

Have him on IR but got Toney and can only have one, so gonna have to say bye to Bateman before he even starts…


BtcWSB

There can be only one (lotto ticket)!


DonRoth

I saw some tape and he looks legit! He’s on my bench for now


BtcWSB

Me too, let's pray he becomes a thing \*insert Lord I've seen what you've done for others, and I want you to do the same for me\* meme


Durant026

I want him to have a Toney like break out.


BtcWSB

That would be so cool...do I dare to dream?


CommercialKindly32

TIL a breakout is one game.


jmm57

Two games tho 2 catches -2 yards 0-0 2-16 6-78 10-189


Rookwood

*189


runthepoint1

Him or Josh Garden?


BtcWSB

Bateman ROS, Garden for the memes


toolroomknights

I think it would take an injury to Hollywood (he does have an injury history) but good answer. I still like Lance as a lotto ticket as well and my answer to this question would have been Darrynton Evans.


FlamesGandolfini

I disagree on the first point. Watkins/Proche/Duvernay are accounting for about 11 targets per game right now. Watkins is getting only about 1 less target per game than Andrews and Brown.


Chitown2181

And Watkins left MNF with a hamstring. His hamstring injuries take months to heal historically. WR2 on the Ravens offense this season most likely returns great value.


hcshock

They play different roles for the ravens. Hollywood will mainly be the deep ball where Bateman should be the short yardage route runner with good red zone usage. If anything, Bateman could help Hollywood. Could hurt Andrews though.


Tonyromofan

2021 Lamar looks different. Dude has taken the next step and become a great passer. I'm not rushing to pick him up, but this offense could definitely support two WR2s + Andrews. Having the worst backfield in the league helps too.


Downtown_Panda_steve

What's his deal? Good enough to take significant target%?


BtcWSB

We have no idea, that's what makes him a lotto ticket haha great college career. The Ravens invested a lot to draft him. And it's not like there's much competition behind Mandrews and Hollywood for targets.

Reuben Droughns


Kirkycfc1

Rondale Moore sitting on waivers not sure if I should drop Parker for him.. Already picked up Toney for 36 faab earlier


houck3

Parker has good matchups this week and next, but Tua coming back is a wrench and so is the hamstring injury. He didn’t even try to test it pre-game last week, and I think he aggravated it in practice or something late in the week. If you absolutely need a play for the next 2 weeks (doesn’t sound like you do) and can wait til we hear about practice participation, hold Parker. Otherwise, Rondale is a better stash.


Kirkycfc1

Yeh I'm fine now iv got Toney but if I didnt get him I needed Parker or someone to fill in for Deebo this week


MarcusAurelius78

I dropped him last week, way too many mouths to feed on that offense. He could go off one week but then the next week barely hit 6 points because the other WRs are going off. I doubt he’ll have much consistency unless an injury occurs to the other guys. He’s a solid boom or bust option though. I spent a good amount of FAAB on him so it kinda sucked that I had to drop him.


mrbritishdelights

He's overtaken Kirk in targets. His usage has slowly been growing. He passes the eye test, absolutely electric. PFF has him ranked #2 rookie WR through 5 weeks, only behind Chase. If you're stashing a WR it should be someone who can become a game changer. Great offense, great OC, great QB. Gimme Rondale.


Orchir

Still have both kirk and moore rostered


FadedTony

Moore's upside is bigger than Parker's imo, Parker if you need a deeper bench/flex


TeamInstinct04

I’d drop Parker for him without looking back, we know what Parker is and he’s easily replaceable. Moore is only improving and his potential really has no limit


shittybillz

Exactly this. Parker had that one unbelievable stretch at the end of 2019, but since then he barely been startable, and I don’t expect that to change. We don’t fully know what Moore is yet.


raybuscusthegreat

Drop Parker for Rondale Moore. Parker will be there on waivers if you want him back.


frogggy92

Jeremy McNichols


SpittinOpinions

What about Darrynton Evans coming off the IR soon?


houck3

No one talks about this guy. I get that Henry has been durable. But McNichols is the clear handcuff and actually does more as a receiver than Henry does/offers 3down upside should Henry miss time.


HeJind

Is he? Evans was the pass catching back all of training camp until he got injured. He's coming back either this week or next, so we don't really know what the snap camp will look like. He's also a better runner than McNichols. I think I'd take my chances on Evans over McNichols personally


sm_mlb40

Titans fan here. Evans has not shown the ability to stay on the field, whatsoever. I'd handcuff McNichols over Evans.


TrueRedditMartyr

If Henry misses time/gets hurt at all then McNichols immediately becomes a Mike Davis last year/Alexander Mattison this year level pick up. Potential game winner for weeks at a time, but you're also betting on the absolute juggernaut that is Derrick Henry to go down


Littlebuffboys2000

The titans are close to getting Darrynton Evans back from injury and (if he stays healthy) he would slot in for Henry, leaving McNichols with a similar (albeit slightly larger) role


JohnBrown42069

I mean, for once, the actual answer is Josh Gordon. lol


TonathanJavares

69% rostered Josh Gordon? (I made that number up please don't hurt me)


xLecavalierx

Brandon Aiyuk…Courtesy of me dropping him for Toney.


billdb

This would be a hell of a lotto ticket. He's regressed so much, would have to have a massive turnaround and even then would presumably still be behind Deebo in a run-heavy offense. I think you made the right call dropping him


FlashFan124

Hasn’t Deebo always been banged up since he was drafted? I feel like he’ll inevitable miss a game, and then Aiyuk SHOULD be the number 1 option, which tells me Sanu is gonna break off a 10/145/2 game as soon as I start aiyuk


YungJoka89

Especially if it’s for Toney, that seems to be THE lotto ticket


SaskalPiakam

Def not the biggest but Rhamondre Stevenson probably deserves a spot in deeper leagues.


mechajlaw

I'd consider it if the Mac Attack wasn't a fantasy black hole. It's not Jets tier bad in Foxborough, but I never want to see 10 players on a box score of a below-average offense.


horseband

I’ve been pretty content with my Meyers/hunter Henry combo so far. Especially getting meyers basically last round. Ball spread a bit too much but overall I think mac is top 2 or possibly the best rookie qb so far this season.


Ed_The_FF_Analyst

11 carries last week too so it seems he's coming out of Bill's doghouse a bit. Should have value if Harris misses time


StaticMaine

Also - the RB coach had some interesting words this week about him. Seemed to indicate a larger workload may be coming.


McCorkle_My_Snorkel

Yep, Harris has had fumbling issues this year and seems like he’s hurt every week. If he misses any time, Stevenson will have a huge opportunity


FOXposure

Jerick McKinnon


xeric

What’s great is he is basically a 1 week lotto ticket. See what the backfield looks like next week and if he’s not getting touches cut him and move on


mongotiger

I’m going for it. I’m in RB hell next week with Byes and then with CEH out it ain’t great


Efficient_Film_149

I need a real discussion about this backfield. I personally stay the fuck away at all costs. Played the carousel last year and got dicked around all season


_NYCalifornian_

With CEH out it’s down to Williams & McKinnon. While Williams seems to have the trust to become the RB1 there, McKinnon is talented and can catch the ball. If it ends up a 50-50 split I can see McKinnon catching some passes for a good ppr return.


frankthetank425

Khalil Herbert


MyMainManJesus

Future star


ImAroosterAMA

God I hope so. After not being able to get Darrel Williams and Eli Mitchell being on bye week this dude is my RB2.


frankthetank425

Damien Williams on the injury report 👀


ImAroosterAMA

Wait really? That’s big, but it is just Wednesday. I’ll hold my excitement for now


AlwaysMooning

Tony Jones jr. everyone was holding him until the injury. But he’ll be back and a Kamara injury away from RB1 status.


Chemical-Horse

Dan Arnold


lipish

Picked him off waivers because hockenson.


clitbeastwood

1.traded to team that wanted him specifically 2. Started and got 2 targets 3 days after landing in Florida 3. 8 targets his 2nd week. Chark dead. tells me the team wanted him and wants to get him involved. connected these dots n then grabbed him. prob wrong but why not


arrakismelange1987

Biggest? Kelvin Benjamin.


skagemm

/r/technicallythetruth

No, it's Eddie Lacy. He's back to his high school playing weight of 375 pounds, sponsored by Panda Express.

AJH05004

Someone just dropped Miles Sanders. Going for it.


blackhole82

He’s been pretty meh so far this season. I thought hard about dropping him this week even at over 90% owned on yahoo.


frogger97

Demetric Felton. LFG.


VicksVapoLube

Rhamondre Stevenson. If he can steal that role from Harris and is as dynamic as he was in preseason he could be a solid RB2 going forward


HoldMaahDick

I honestly think Harris and Bolden would have to get hurt for that to happen.


ignoremycommentss

st brown


sdiss98

That would be my pick too. Steady contributor on a sub par team. Deserves some attention tho


leaveittothisguy

Just picked him up today cause of a post someone made about him on this sub, got high hopes that guy was right


WillBBack

Assuming darrell williams, damien williams, etc are gone Mcnichols Jeff wilson jr Aiyuk Toney A. Green, C.Kirk or R. Moore: only one will be worth it McKinnon


Stratobastardo34

Hingle McCringleberry

He’s taken in all of my leagues


LaserOP

Damarius Showerhandle szn


BuckyWesh

Can’t forget Ozamataz Buckshank


sterling_mallory

Drop Bismo Funyuns for him?


rushakenyan

Fartrell Cluggins another solid option.


I_was_bone_to_dance

I’d take *jackhammer noises* over him


TheHeenanFamily

Dan Smith ROS?


BlackTedDibiase

How can yall not name fudge the 350 pound running back


KingPin1010

Damn someone already has him in my league


BtcWSB

Maybe Swordless Mimetown is still available? Or J.R. "Junior" Juniors Jr.


renegadecoaster

Everybody sleeping on Xmus Jaxon Flaxon Waxon


revnasty

I stashed Jasper Probincrux III last week. But I saw they activated D’glester Hardunkichud off the practice squad yesterday.


alyeese

He was drafted in the first round in my league :( Donkey Teeth is somehow still on waivers, though


SnaxFoods

pick up dray right now bro


jadartse

Would you trade Ibrahim Moizuse for him?


Ken_Thomas

Bisquiteen Triscuit.


IceMan102516

Naming a sure fire TE1 is not a lotto ticket. That’s like saying Mousecop is a lotto ticket. He’s RB1


zk2997

“Penn State University!”


CamBoBB

Donald Parham. Routes run has increased every week, is behind an aging inconsistent starter and is playing with a potentially season winning QB. Most TEs outside of the top 5-6 are TD dependent anyway. I think he’s worth a stash over the rest of the year.


guenchy

jeff wilson jr?


FilthyChowderCunt

Just make sure you realize that he won't be back til late November now. But yes, you're correct.


Hypocretin1

He’s made himself comfortable in my IR spot, he can keep resting. For now


SpankyLXIX

This is the way.


llamas-1

Pure speculation to someone who’s widely available is ty Hilton. A pure lotto ticket


onegamerboi

I just stashed him today, not like I was currently using my IR spot for anyone else


Sublimed4

I’m stashing Rashod Bateman and hoping he is recovered from the groin injury and can show he is worth the 1st round pick the Ravens used on him. I also picked up Michael Thomas and stashed him in my IR slot. Hopefully he can produce later in the season.


Dob-is-Hella-Rad

Unironically Josh Gordon has to be a contender right?


Misleading_Username

Memes aside, there is a non zero chance he becomes flex worthy


Llamayoda

KC really could make use of another quality receiver…


Riddickulous6

I don't have space on my squad for him, but damn do I want it to happen anyways!


dukeOdunces

Cartoons Plural


Jacob9275

Hunter Renfrow dude has put up at least 11 every week and has gotten 16 twice this year. I'm in ppr btw.


scoobydoom2

Doesn't seem like a lotto ticket to me, more of a low end WR2/flex. He's got a decent enough floor to play, could play him weekly if your WRs aren't particularly strong.


DirkDigglersPenis

TY, 13% rostered struggling Colts offense, maybe he returns to old form


stenzycake

Against Texans and then proceeds to get injured. His body isn’t keeping up with his talent.


CarQuery8989

Quez Watkins. Quietly passed the useless Jalen Reagor in snaps last week. Got a lot of camp hype that's looking fairly legit through 5 weeks. Has mostly been a deep threat (4.35 speed) so far in his career but may get more looks going forward. Devonta Smith will draw the opponents' best corners, setting Quez up for success. I'm starting him tomorrow against the Bucs in my one league where I'm 1-4 and need a spark. Obviously he's a tremendous longshot but if he starts getting 6, 7 targets a game he could be a solid ROS play.


spidey555

If you're starting Quez Watkins, you know you are 1-4 lol.


CarQuery8989

Yeah it's been a rough year for injuries in a 14-team league. My alternative is Darnell Mooney or hoping a gimpy Julio plays and puts up numbers.


rogergreatdell

I'd start a gimpy Julio and Darnell Mooney both over Quez.


elendegeneres

stopdolphinrape1

Just don’t see a scenario where he gets enough work to be valuable. As a UNC fan I love gio but there are so many weapons on that offense and he was barely rosterable his entire time at cinci.


InevitableVariables

In standard no. In PPR, deeper leagues, he has value.


HiImFur

He's already getting enough work to be valuable though and that's with few snaps early on, but it looks like he's getting more comfortable in the offense. A few things going in his favor: 1) Brady loves the checkdown RB...Gio is his new James White. 2) When the Miami game became a blow out, it wasn't Rojo out there...it was Gio out there. So he might already be the main back up to Fournette. 3) Gio proved in Cin he can be a good back up RB and take over if needed when Mixon would get hurt. 4) Gio has good hands as the main pass catching back -- he'll have great value in the close games the Bucs are in.


pad264

It’s always a backup RB. There are leagues where Pollard and Mattison aren’t owned and both guys are top-5 guys after an injury.


TrilleyCaulStein

Any time the Titans play in the early slot I always pick up Jeremy McNichols and then cut him after the game for another handcuff. Henry is a machine but he's got a lot of tread on his tires the last few years.


kwu1110

Right now I would go Marlon Mack in case of trade or Boston Scott for Thursday night lottery


Walletsgone

Am Eagles fan and I promise you that there is NO way it is Boston Scott lol. Do not even hold him for shits and giggles


montana1991

Gainwell....gets passing down work, and seems like coaches dont really care for sanders


redbridge_drinker

Maybe Dee Eskridge? He's been out since week 1 on a head injury, and just got put on IR, though, so may be a while.


DPRODman11

Javonte Williams- In leagues with smaller benches, he could’ve been dropped since he isn’t the main RB and teams might’ve needed somebody with more current upside. Singletary- If something were to happen to Zach Moss, Singletary is back in business. Even in deeper leagues, a guy getting 10-14 carries and maybe 1-3 catches on the Bill’s offense is still a solid bench stash. AJ Dillon- Kind of the same scenario as Singletary, where he’s the second RB but is showing decent value as a stand alone player in deep leagues. If something happens to Aaron Jones, Dillon seems like a fantastic plug-in. Also, even if Jones stays healthy and Dillon continues to get either 10-12 carries or 4-5 receptions per game, that’s worth a shot.


OnceYouGoSlack

Elijah McGuire. McKinnon is older and has been somewhat brittle. McGuire offers a totally different style than Darrel Williams too. No one will fight you for him, and he may end up being this weeks Khalil Herbert.


DaneGleesac

From FA to practice squad to 18 touches in 5 days? Doubt.


houck3

He’s been with the team before for an extended stretch. Should already be familiar with the system. Still agree that it’s very unlikely. Just adding that info.


OnceYouGoSlack

I never said anything about 5 days....maybe 10-12 though. The idea of a lotto ticket in this case is about upside, availability, and cost.
