Fantasy Waiver Wire Week 15: 5 to add, drop, buy low, sell high

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (11) returns a punt in the first quarter of the NFL Week 14 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati on Sunday, Dec. 11, 2022. The Bengals led 13-3 at halftime. Cleveland Browns At Cincinnati Bengals Week 14

  • Add Donovan Peoples-Jones: The Cleveland Browns receiver recorded career-highs in receptions and yard in addition to playing 100% of his team's offensive snaps for the first time in his career. Peoples-Jones has a relatively easy schedule ahead.
  • Cut Kareem Hunt: He’s well past providing stand-alone value, and there are better handcuff options at this point of the season.
  • Buy low and sell high on rookies in dynasty: The final buy low and sell high of the year focuses on rookies. Any rookie can break out or have a sophomore slump, but these are the players I’d be looking to trade for and am willing to trade away in dynasty leagues.

This piece is a fantasy manager's one-stop shop for managing their fantasy roster early in the week. For more players to add, check out the weekly waiver wire, and for more on this past week's games in general, check out the fantasy football recap.


1. RB Jerick McKinnon, Kansas City Chiefs

McKinnon caught seven passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns while running the ball six times in the Chiefs’ Week 14 road victory.

  • McKinnon has been the Chiefs' third-down back all season. We’ve seen him, at times, garner more snaps on early downs, and that happened in this game.
  • Ronald Jones, the Chiefs’ third back, didn’t play any snaps on offense.
  • He tends to play more in closer games, and he played a lot while the Broncos were catching up late in the game.
  • He can likely be left on the bench this upcoming week while the Chiefs blow out the Houston Texans, but they have a competitive game against the Seattle Seahawks the following week.
  • They have a rematch against the Broncos during fantasy championship week.
  • It’s also fair to consider McKinnon a handcuff. He could see a heavy majority of offensive snaps if something happens to Isiah Pacheco, just as he did late last season.

2. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones, Cleveland Browns

Peoples-Jones put up a career-best eight receptions and 114 receiving yards in the Browns' loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • He played 100% of offensive snaps for the first time in his career.
  • Cleveland attempted five deep passes, and Peoples-Jones was the target on all five.
  • This marked the most deep targets for a Browns receiver in a game this season.
  • Cleveland has the fifth-easiest schedule for wide receivers over the rest of the fantasy season.

3. WR D.J. Chark, Detroit Lions
