  • Here are five players worth targeting on the waiver wire this week who could be useful in your starting lineup going forward.

    D.J. MOORE

    When talent and opportunity meet, that’s the intersection where you can find fantasy value.

    After a slow start to the season, Moore appears to be getting his opportunity, with the Carolina Panthers wide receiver racking up 129 total yards in his first start this past weekend.

    He was a first-round draft pick for a reason and isn’t someone who needs a heavy serving of targets to make plays.


    Okay, you don’t have to convince us anymore David Moore. It’s reached the point where end-zone visits for the Seattle Seahawks wideout are no longer a fluke, but a trend.

    He’s scored in three straight games now and is doing it efficiently without many targets. It’s unlikely he keeps up his touchdown rate to this degree, but he’s widely available as a home-run play.


    Fitzmagic is back, baby!

    With Jameis Winston playing himself out of the starting job thanks to his love of interceptions, Fitzpatrick could take the reins of the Buccaneers offence once again.

    If he is named the starter, don’t expect Fitzpatrick to put up the kind of numbers he did in the beginning of the season, but he’s obviously capable of capturing lighting in a bottle once in a while.


    The Philadelphia Eagles backfield is unpredictable right now, so use that unpredictability to your advantage by taking a stab on Adams, who may end up emerging as the lead back.

    It was Adams and not Wendell Smallwood or Corey Clement who received the most carries on Sunday, and it’s possible that continues to be the case considering his efficiency this season (5.4 yards per carry).



    Having as many shares of the Los Angeles Rams offence as possible this season has been a winning strategy, so why not target Reynolds?

    It’s true his value is largely dependent on how much more time Cooper Kupp misses, but with how well the Rams are playing, they can afford to play it safe with their starting wideout as he recovers from an MCL sprain. In the meantime, Reynolds can thrive.
