It is time to dig deep on the waiver wire because bye weeks are coming! Geno Smith is an easy add for any QB needy teams or SF leagues, but the other three players are deeper stashes just in case you have a lack of depth from injuries and bye weeks! Let’s go win a ship!
Geno Smith, Seattle Seahawks
Rostered in 3% of MFL leagues (11% FAAB in 1QB and 55% in SF leagues)
Geno Smith will be the starting QB for the Seahawks for around six weeks. If you are a QB needy team in a Superflex league or you just lost Wilson, you should bid at least 55% of your FAAB on him. Smith did not impress from a fantasy standpoint in week 5, but that is without the team game-planning for him to be the QB. One exciting part of Geno’s game is he had 3 rushes for 23 yards. If he can maintain the rushing, he has a nice fantasy floor.
Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington Football Team
Rostered in 14% of MFL leagues (15% of FAAB)
Ricky Seals-Jones took over where Logan Thomas left off. Jones had 8 targets for 5 receptions and 41 yards. He was the TE14 on the week in PPR leagues and was also 7th out of all TEs in targets. If I recently lost Thomas to IR or I need a TE to spot start with byes coming up, I would spend 15% of my FAAB on Jones. He could see his volume maintained while Logan Thomas is injured.
DeAndre Carter, Washington Football Team
Rostered in 0% of MFL leagues (5% of FAAB)
Carter had the second most targets on the Washington Football team after only having 1 target in week 4. Carter went from 16.4% of snaps in week 4 to 69.9% of snaps in Week 5. Part of the increase in snap% was the injury to Curtis Samuel, whose status for next week is unknown. I would stash Carter for now and wait and see what happens. He could prove to be a spot start for teams in a rough place.
Jamal Agnew, Jacksonville Jaguars
Rostered in 3% of MFL leagues (3% of FAAB)
Agnew leads all WRs on the Jaguars in targets and receptions in week 5. Agnew was also on the field for 63.4% of the snaps in Week 5. This is a large increase in his snap% from Week 5, where he only had 14.3% of the snaps. I do not expect Agnew to be a regular contributor for the Jaguars, but he should be stashed over players with season-ending injuries like Maxx Williams in deep leagues.
