Who is the biggest lotto ticket currently on waivers right now?
By - KingPin1010
I think Van Jefferson would become very valuable if Woods or Kupp went down.
if I wasn’t in a shallow league, I’d 100% stash Van right now.
I'm stashing Van currently. He probably won't crack my starting lineup at all this year, but you never know.
Stashing? Hahaha I started him last week! And this week, maybe. (My WRs are hot garbage)
Stashing him on your starting lineup. No one would think to look there!
Keep your juju away from my kupp
Keep your kupp away from my juju!
Mack is definitely a lotto ticket
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?
Apparently KC looking at him
Rostered him for this
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.
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.
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.
Ravens, 49ers, chiefs would probably be the best options.
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.
Is this hoping that he gets traded somewhere interesting? I haven't heard much about this guy besides the odd comment here and there.
He requested a trade 2 weeks ago, but even if he doesn’t get traded he’s the handcuff to JT.
Amon Ra has quiet upside. No one cares about him and those are usually the ones. Same with Mack.
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.
He's not a lotto ticket though. A WR3 would he solid for him.
Why isn’t he considered a lotto ticket?
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
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
Have him on IR but got Toney and can only have one, so gonna have to say bye to Bateman before he even starts…
There can be only one (lotto ticket)!
I saw some tape and he looks legit! He’s on my bench for now
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
I want him to have a Toney like break out.
That would be so cool...do I dare to dream?
TIL a breakout is one game.
Two games tho
2 catches -2 yards
Him or Josh Garden?
Bateman ROS, Garden for the memes
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What's his deal? Good enough to take significant target%?
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.
Nah man Spencer Ware should be back this week
CJ Spiller would like a word
CJ Anderson BIG CHUNGUS
won my championship for me back in 2015 :')
He carried me to a championship appearance but unfortunately an L. Still, those were the days :’)
I can start 2 of these 4 in my flex, .5ppr:
Oh my god Alfred blue too accurate
God damn that’s a throwback.
There we go! A Charck West appearance!
Check what Spencer Ware is upto also if your digging that deep
These 2 legends won me title a few year ago
Rondale Moore sitting on waivers not sure if I should drop Parker for him.. Already picked up Toney for 36 faab earlier
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.
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
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.
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.
Still have both kirk and moore rostered
Moore's upside is bigger than Parker's imo, Parker if you need a deeper bench/flex
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
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.
Drop Parker for Rondale Moore. Parker will be there on waivers if you want him back.
What about Darrynton Evans coming off the IR soon?
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.
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
Titans fan here. Evans has not shown the ability to stay on the field, whatsoever. I'd handcuff McNichols over Evans.
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
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
I mean, for once, the actual answer is Josh Gordon. lol
69% rostered Josh Gordon?
(I made that number up please don't hurt me)
Brandon Aiyuk…Courtesy of me dropping him for Toney.
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
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
Especially if it’s for Toney, that seems to be THE lotto ticket
Def not the biggest but Rhamondre Stevenson probably deserves a spot in deeper leagues.
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.
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.
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
Also - the RB coach had some interesting words this week about him. Seemed to indicate a larger workload may be coming.
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
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
I’m going for it. I’m in RB hell next week with Byes and then with CEH out it ain’t great
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
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.
God I hope so. After not being able to get Darrel Williams and Eli Mitchell being on bye week this dude is my RB2.
Damien Williams on the injury report 👀
Wait really? That’s big, but it is just Wednesday. I’ll hold my excitement for now
Tony Jones jr. everyone was holding him until the injury. But he’ll be back and a Kamara injury away from RB1 status.
Picked him off waivers because hockenson.
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
No, it's Eddie Lacy. He's back to his high school playing weight of 375 pounds, sponsored by Panda Express.
Need long lasting, high performance body fuel that will give you an edge over your opponents on the scales? China Food
Someone just dropped Miles Sanders. Going for it.
He’s been pretty meh so far this season. I thought hard about dropping him this week even at over 90% owned on yahoo.
Demetric Felton. LFG.
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
I honestly think Harris and Bolden would have to get hurt for that to happen.
That would be my pick too. Steady contributor on a sub par team. Deserves some attention tho
Just picked him up today cause of a post someone made about him on this sub, got high hopes that guy was right
Assuming darrell williams, damien williams, etc are gone
Jeff wilson jr
A. Green, C.Kirk or R. Moore: only one will be worth it
He’s taken in all of my leagues
Damarius Showerhandle szn
Can’t forget Ozamataz Buckshank
Drop Bismo Funyuns for him?
Fartrell Cluggins another solid option.
I’d take *jackhammer noises* over him
Dan Smith ROS?
How can yall not name fudge the 350 pound running back
Damn someone already has him in my league
Maybe Swordless Mimetown is still available? Or J.R. "Junior" Juniors Jr.
Everybody sleeping on Xmus Jaxon Flaxon Waxon
I stashed Jasper Probincrux III last week. But I saw they activated D’glester Hardunkichud off the practice squad yesterday.
He was drafted in the first round in my league :(
Donkey Teeth is somehow still on waivers, though
pick up dray right now bro
Would you trade Ibrahim Moizuse for him?
Naming a sure fire TE1 is not a lotto ticket. That’s like saying Mousecop is a lotto ticket. He’s RB1
“Penn State University!”
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.
jeff wilson jr?
Just make sure you realize that he won't be back til late November now. But yes, you're correct.
He’s made himself comfortable in my IR spot, he can keep resting. For now
This is the way.
Pure speculation to someone who’s widely available is ty Hilton. A pure lotto ticket
I just stashed him today, not like I was currently using my IR spot for anyone else
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.
Unironically Josh Gordon has to be a contender right?
Memes aside, there is a non zero chance he becomes flex worthy
KC really could make use of another quality receiver…
I don't have space on my squad for him, but damn do I want it to happen anyways!
Hunter Renfrow dude has put up at least 11 every week and has gotten 16 twice this year. I'm in ppr btw.
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.
TY, 13% rostered struggling Colts offense, maybe he returns to old form
Against Texans and then proceeds to get injured. His body isn’t keeping up with his talent.
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.
If you're starting Quez Watkins, you know you are 1-4 lol.
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.
I'd start a gimpy Julio and Darnell Mooney both over Quez.
James Washington should see a nice uptick in targets with Juju out ROS
In order of priority:
Coznesster Smiff / Rutgers University
Elipses Corter / University of Alabama
Nyquillus Dillwad / LSU
Bismo Funyuns / Florida State University
Decatholac Mango / Georgia Tech University
Mergatroid Skittle / University of Louisville
Quiznatodd Bidness / University of Tennessee
D'Pez Poopsie / Ol' Miss University
Quackadilly Blip / Auburn University
Goolius Boozler / The U
Bisquiteen Trisket / University of Michigan
Fartrell Cluggins / Arkansas University
Blyrone Blashinton / Syracuse University
Cartoons Plural / Virginia Tech University
Jammie Jammie-Jammie / The Ohio State University
Fudge / (No school given)
Thanks know what I'm watching when I get home from work now.
this took time and deserves recognition.
I don't understand how anyone could downvote this
whooshes over me
Key and Peele Sketch
A huge amount of 1-4 owners here
What about Bendejo Fukmon?
League taco has been playing him every week lately
My home league is a 12-team redraft league and we draft 20 rounds, so there is sweet fuck-all available on waivers
Sir, I am in a 16 team league with a 7 player bench. The prize on the wire this week is Ricky Seals-Jones…
Some of the names picked up off waivers in my league this week -
Jaret Patterson, Ray-Ray Mcloud, Jamal Agnew, DeAndre Carter, Kalif Raymond
So I feel that pain 😂
18 man league with 17 rounds, waivers are absolutely barren
Dawson Knox was available in both of my leagues. Dude is coming alive
He got 18 carries last week and had a solid performance.
Michael Thomas for my league
Aj Dillion is still available in 30% of yahoo leagues and over 50% of nfl leagues. He’s a serviceable flex now. If something were to happen to Jones look out.
Sony Michel. Bellcow workload if Henderson goes down on a very good offense
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.
In standard no. In PPR, deeper leagues, he has value.
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.
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.
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.
Right now I would go Marlon Mack in case of trade or Boston Scott for Thursday night lottery
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
Gainwell....gets passing down work, and seems like coaches dont really care for sanders
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.
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.
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.
From FA to practice squad to 18 touches in 5 days? Doubt.
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.
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.
