Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 15
Hopefully you don’t have to use them, but these waiver wire options could help carry you to the fantasy championships if utilized properly. Here’s the Grab…
Salvon Ahmed, Dolphins
Ahmed is questionable to play, but it looks as if he’ll be good to go against the Patriots as lead RB with Myles Gaskin out with Covid-19.
Tony Pollard, Cowboys
Pollard has gotten double-digit touches the last 2 weeks with Ezekiel Elliott banged up. The 49ers are tough, but Pollard has enough shake to break open some plays.
Sony Michel, Patriots
Damien Harris is out with an ankle injury, leaving Michel to take the role of workhorse this week. Miami defends the run well, but the Patriots just don’t have that many other weapons. Michel will get plenty of touches.
Rashard Higgins, Browns
Higgins has had over 65 yards and/or a TD in 3 of his last 4 games in the new-look Browns offense. He might have his hands full with the Giants James Bradbury, but Higgins should get enough targets to make it worth your while.
Russell Gage, Falcons
Julio Jones will be out again this week, so Gage and Calvin Ridley will presumably take the bulk of passing targets.
Kendrick Bourne, 49ers
Deebo Samuel is out again, and George Kittle is still at least a week from returning, so it’ll be Bourne and Brandon Aiyuk to round out the 49ers passing attack against a toothless Cowboys secondary.
Cole Kmet, Bears
Kmet is the no.1 TE in Chicago as of the last few weeks, averaging 7 targets a game over his last two. He and Allen Robinson seem to be the only consistent pass-catchers with Mitch Trubisky under center.
Irv Smith, Vikings
Smith has 3 TDs in his last 2 starts in place of Kyle Rudolph, and he’ll get a Bears team this week that is the 4th best matchup for TEs in the league.
Jalen Hurts, Eagles
Hurts has a built in running floor as new starter for the Eagles, so he can manufacture his own points. Anything he does through the air is just gravy.
