We have reached Week 14 of the NFL season and the waiver wire is crucial. For some of us this may be the first week of the playoffs. For others, it could be a win to get in week! With the Colts, Patriots, Dolphins and Eagles on a bye, many managers will be looking for fill ins this week. I am here to give you a few Week 14 Waiver Wire targets to help you get that win.

Early Week 14 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Targets
K.J. Osborn (WR) – 4.2% Rostered
In Week 13, we saw Adam Thielen exit the game early with an ankle injury. It has come out that he sprained his ankle and could miss some time. K.J. Osborn saw 7 targets, which he was able to turn into 4 receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown. This was good enough for 14.7 PPR points. Prior to Sunday and Monday night football, he is the WR21 for Week 13. If Adam Thielen is to miss any time, KJ Osborn will be a viable flex play. In Week 14 the Vikings face the Steelers who allow over 30 points to the WR position each week. If he steps into the second wide receiver role, he should see double digit targets, with WR2 upside. He is only rostered in 4.2% of ESPN leagues. This makes him a must add on the Week 14 waiver wire target.

Russell Gage (WR) – 24.9% Rostered
As a popular offseason add, Russell Gage was a big let down early in the season. However, over the past few weeks he has turned it around in a big way. He has seen 27 targets over the last three weeks. As a result, he has produced 22 receptions for 241 yards and a touchdown. In Week 13 he took 12 receptions for 130 yards totaling 22 fantasy points. Aside from Sunday and Monday night football, he is the WR8 for the week. In Week 14, the Falcons have a divisional matchup with the Panthers who are ranked 12th best against wide receivers. Even in this tough matchup I expect Russell Gage to see 8-13 targets again. He will have an opportunity to produce WR1 numbers again, and this is why he is a must target on your Week 14 Waiver Wire.

Devontae Booker (RB) – 29.7% Rostered
Devontae Booker was a great add earlier in the year when Saquon Barkley went down. However this week he proved to have some stand alone value as well. He saw 6 carries for 38 yards, along with 4 receptions for 18 yards. This was good enough for 9.4 PPR points. In comparison, Saquon had 11 carries for 55 yards and 6 receptions for 19 yards. With the injuries continuing to mount for the Giants, I expect the ground game and these running backs to see a good amount of usage. In Week 14, the Giants face the Chargers who allow 24 PPR points a week to the position. They have allowed over 2,000 total yards to running backs this season. For this reason, I see Devontae Booker having Flex viability in Week 14. He is someone I would look to add to your Week 14 waiver wire.
Nick Vannett (TE) – 0.0% Rostered
As we can see by his roster percentage, Nick Vannett is far from a fancy name. In Week 13 against the Cowboys, he saw 4 targets which he turned into 3 receptions for 4.8 yards. That was good enough for TE15 on the week. I do not expect Nick Vannett to start lighting up the fantasy football scene. However, if you are in a tough spot with your tight end position, his Week 14 matchup is great. The Saints face the Jets who rank 32nd in fantasy points allowed to tight ends. They just gave up 28 plus points to Dallas Goedert this week. I think he will have an opportunity to finish as a low end TE1 in Week 14. Making him a good target for your Week 14 Waiver Wire if you need tight end help.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (WR) – 6.6% R0stered
In Week 13, we saw the potential of the rookie out of USC. He is currently the WR6 this week with 24.8 PPR points. This was a result of his 10 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown. This was his fourth double digit week this season. In Week 14, the Lions will face the Broncos. As a result I expect a game script similar to their Week 13 game. Along with this, the Broncos currently rank 14th in points allowed to wide receivers. The addition of Josh Reynolds has created a true deep threat to the passing game. This has opened up the middle of the field. This is where Amon-Ra St. Brown makes his money. Expecting low end WR2 numbers in Week 14 is not a crazy thought. This makes him a must target in your Week 14 waiver wire targets.

Laquon Treadwell (WR) -0.1% Rostered
This former first rounder seems to have found a home in Jacksonville the past two weeks. After DJ Chark went down earlier this year the Jaguars have been trying to replace his field stretching abilities. Over the last two games, Laquon Treadwell has seen 13 targets. He’s turned them into 8 receptions for 115 yards. In both of these weeks he has produced 19.3 fantasy points. He get to face off against the Titans in Week 14. Tennessee ranks 31st in the league in fantasy points allowed to the position. They are currently allowing over 45 points a week which creates a favorable matchup. I expect this divisional game to be hard fought. Treadwell should see 5-8 targets again. As a result I can see him producing WR3 numbers in Week 14. This makes him a must target in your Week 14 waiver wire targets.
Laquon Treadwell tied Laviska Shenault with the most targets for the Jags at wide receiver today (5).
James O'Shaughnessy led the team, though (6).
