Waiver Wire: Edwards and Reed set to shine in lead roles

Football Team

There's only two weeks left in the fantasy football regular season for most of you, and it's nearly do-or-die time to sneak into the postseason in hopes of getting hot at the right time.

So it's not exactly the best time to need to find major production off the waiver wire, but there are still a few targets to serve as a spot-starter this week. 

Gus Edwards: RB, Baltimore Ravens

With Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins testing positive for the coronavirus this week, Gus Edwards figures to be the lead back on Thanksgiving night against the Steelers. The Ravens ran for over 200 yards the last time they played Pittsburgh, so if they can move the ball well on the ground remotely as well this week, Edwards should benefit. 

Jordan Reed: TE, San Francisco 49ers

Reed could be the 49ers top skill receiver this week with George Kittle and Deebo Samuel out and Brandon Aiyuk's uncertain status for Week 12. Tight end production is so hard to find that it might be worth a big swing on Reed.

Taysom Hill: QB, New Orleans Saints

Hill got the surprise nod over Jameis Winston this week and provided plenty of teams a one-week cheat code by putting gup quarterback stats in the tight end slot. That gimmick is now over, but Hill may still be a solid play at quarterback. 

 

He protected the ball, was a real weapon in the running game and had a strong first performance as a starting quarterback. If you need a quarterback right now, you could do worse than Hill. 

Tim Patrick: WR, Denver Broncos

Patrick has slowly and steadily become a viable target for Drew Lock and if he hasn't been picked up in your leagues yet, make sure to get your hands on him as the Broncos look to end their season strong.
