There are two weeks until the fantasy playoffs; which waiver wire guys can help you secure that playoff spot? Let us take a look at five guys this week that can help you achieve that!
Alex Singleton – LB – Eagles (15%)
Alex Singleton has been playing out of his mind the past two weeks, posting 28 tackles. He started at inside linebacker and played 100% of the Eagles’ defensive snaps in another tough loss. Singleton has racked up over nine fantasy points in each of the past six of seven weeks. He has 17.5 in week ten and 25.5 this past week. If he can keep playing like this, he should be able to keep putting up those numbers.
Harold Landry III – LB – Titans (36%)
With the loss of Jadeveon Clowney and now Jayon Brown, Harold Landry should see an uptick in production. Brown left last week’s game with a fractured and dislocated elbow, ending his season. Landry has played over 90% of the snaps in every game this season, except for one. He has also not finished with less than eight fantasy points in any game this season either. He has the opportunity, and he should be owned in more leagues than just 36%. If he is on the waiver wire, don’t hesitate and pick him up.
Matt Judon – EDGE – Ravens (29%)
Matt Judon is another gut that should be owned more than is shown. He didn’t play in week seven and only played ten snaps in week eight, but the past three weeks, Judon has averaged over 13 points per game since coming back from injury. He has only played on average 69% of the defensive snaps, but he is still getting the job done. Over those three weeks, Judon has 15 tackles, two sacks, three quarterback hurries, and one pass deflection.
Kyle Dugger – S – Patriots (24%)
Kyle Dugger got a lot of praise since the Patriots drafted him; however, his season started very slow. He played over 40% of the snaps twice and none over 50% until weeks ten and eleven. In week ten against the Ravens, Dugger racked up 12 tackles, good enough for 13 fantasy points, and in week 11, six tackles for 9.5 fantasy points. His snap count over those two weeks were both over 75%. He will produce if he can continue to get increased snaps.
Rayshawn Jenkins – S – Chargers (25%)
Rayshawn Jenkins is another guy that is getting all the reps (except for one week). He isn’t blowing the door off the stats, but he is consistent. Jenkins has been averaging just under ten fantasy points per game, but he does have 59 tackles, three pass deflections, one sack, and one interception on the year. Jenkins could be one of those sneaky pickups off the waiver wire for the beginning of the fantasy playoffs. He has teams like the Patriots, Falcons, and Broncos to finish out the year.
