Week 15 is fast approaching, which means we’re officially nearing the end of our fantasy football seasons. For those who are still alive in the playoffs, well played! Week 15 is the second-to-last week to make moves for the final push to secure some hardware in your fantasy leagues, heightening the importance of adding potential impact players on the waiver wire.
I’ve compiled the most intriguing waiver wire additions ahead of Week 15 based on their usage rates, production and schedules moving forward.
QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles — 17% rostered
The prophecy has arrived. I’ve hammered the “add Hurts” option for weeks now — and we all know why after his Week 14 performance. The rookie stepped in against one of the best defenses in football in the New Orleans Saints and dominated to the tune of 19.28 fantasy points.
Hurts was the first player — alongside teammate Miles Sanders — to surpass 100 rushing yards against the Saints' defense in 55 (!) games. He also tossed the rock around, gaining 167 passing yards and throwing a touchdown on a jump ball to Alshon Jeffery.

There are literally zero reasons for the Eagles to turn back to Carson Wentz, making this Hurts’ team for the time being. His rushing ability and safe playstyle are sure to keep his floor relatively high, though his ceiling is also capped. Look at the rookie as a safe option for the remainder of this season.
