It’s time for the Week 15 fantasy football waiver wire. Fantasy waivers can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 15.

Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.

Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.

Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)


Ryan Tannehill, TEN (10-20%) — Since Week 7, only Lamar Jackson averages more fantasy points per game among quarterbacks. Tannehill is a QB1 for the final two weeks of the season.

Running back

Raheem Mostert, SF (50-100%) — The 49ers made it clear in Week 14 that Mostert is their guy. He's worth spending it all on this week.

Adrian Peterson, WAS (25-50%) — With Derrius Guice likely sidelined for the next two weeks, Peterson will be a high-volume, low-upside fantasy option.

Wide receiver

A.J. Brown, TEN (50-100%) — Brown is coming off a massive Week 14 performance and ranks fifth among wideouts in fantasy scoring over the last three weeks. He's worth unloading all your FAAB on this week.

Zach Pascal, IND (25-50%) — Injuries to the Indy wide receiver corps have left Pascal as the last man standing, and he's responded. The Colts wideout has posted the 12th-most fantasy points at the position over the last two weeks.

Tight end

Tyler Higbee, LA (20-40%) — The Rams tight end has had excellent matchups over the last two weeks, but his performance shouldn't be downplayed. With Gerald Everett still banged up, Higbee could see another big workload this week.

Noah Fant, DEN (15-30%) — The rookie has a great connection with Drew Lock and is coming off a massive Week 14 performance.

Regular leagues (12 teams)


Philip Rivers, LAC (7-15%) — With fantasy-friendly matchups against Minnesota and Oakland over the next two weeks, Rivers is a priority streamer.
