Marcus Mariota (35.3% rostered)

Marcus is not a sexy option at QB, but he provides opportunities to land as a top 15 QB more than most options on waivers right now. He has landed as a top 10 QB 4 times this season, and is currently ranked as QB11 on the year. His rushing ability has an additional boost for fantasy purposes, along with the conservative play of the Arthur Smith led Falcons. There is no expected change for QB in Atlanta right now, and Mariota faces a favorable schedule with Washington, Pittsburgh, and New Orleans upcoming in the schedule. If you need a stream QB, Mariota is a secure option.

Rachaad White (34.7% rostered)

Leonard Fournette is expected back soon which caps White's upside, but is a solid option for those lacking depth or strength at RB going into playoffs. Fournette is an older back with an injury history, so White has a lot of potential as a handcuff backup. White saw 22 carries when Fournette went down, and turned that into a solid 105 yards. He has been trending up with Fournette's inefficiency, and could see more action as the weeks progress. Despite not seeing a target this week, White has been utilized more than Fournette in the passing game so far this season. Tampa bay also ends the season on a high note facing Carolina and Atlanta in weeks 17-18 making him a good matchup option for the later weeks.

Isiah Pacheco (17.3% rostered)

Pacheco finally took the starting role while CEH has virtually fallen out of this offense. Pacheco saw 16 carries in Week 10, and faces the struggling Chargers run defense in Week 11. Pacheco has started to take a chunk out of McKinnon's receiving work as well as being the clear lead back on running downs. Pacheco will face Houston in Week 15, which could be a big opportunity for fantasy managers looking ahead to the playoffs. Picking the lead back on one of the best offenses in football is never a bad thing.

Kadarius Toney (49.3% rostered)

Toney saw increased usage this week with JuJu Smith-Schuster getting injured and he made the most of it. Toney is talented with the ball in his hands and managed to land in the top 10 WRs in fantasy with both Hardman and Smith-Schuster out. Toney could see an increased role in this offense as he builds trust with Patrick Mahomes, and could be in line for plenty of scoring opportunities. Toney is a waiver wire pickup that could elevate any team to the championship as long as Patrick Mahomes is slinging it.

Darius Slayton (5.3% rostered)

Slayton saw a huge role in a limited passing game in Week 10, and could remain the only big receiving option for Daniel Jones. The Giants clearly do not want to pass the ball, but when they do Slayton is the biggest benefactor. Barkley is going to remain the highest utilized offensive weapon for the Giants, but Slayton could easily turn 4-5 targets into fantasy production. Slayton saw 4 targets turn into 3 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown, which landed him inside the top 10 fantasy scoring WRs this week, and with several receivers facing bye weeks or injuries, Slayton could be a huge pick up. The Giants face some extremely favorable matchups in the upcoming weeks including Detroit, Dallas, Washington (2x), and Minnesota. Slayton is a guy who could fill in for an injured Cooper Kupp or Ja'Marr Chase and have top 10 upside.

Cole Kmet (49.4% rostered)

Tight ends will never be a consistent position if you did not land Kelce, but Kmet has provided some big value in the past couple weeks. Kmet has been the TE1 over the past two weeks, accumulating 15 targets and turning them into 11 receptions for 126 yards and 5 TD. Kmet is the 6th most used TE in the red zone over the entire year, and the most used TE in the past two weeks. Kmet is clearly Fields most trusted option in the red zone and has big TD opportunity for a Bears team that has been riding the legs of Justin Fields. Kmet ends the year faving Detroit and Minnesota, which is favorable for those who will need TE's later in. the year. Kmet is one of the few TE's that could provide top 5 TE potential on the waivers.

Cade Otton (15% rostered)

Otton has seen an increased role with Cameron Brate being used less frequently. Otton has been a top 10 TE since Week 6, and has been a top 15 TE twice in that span. TE is a wasteland, but Otton faces a good matchup against Arizona, Carolina, and Atlanta to finish the year, which could provide him with some huge matchup upside for fantasy managers making a run in playoffs.
