Week 15 has been the most chaotic week of the 2021 season. Arguably no fantasy playoff round has ever been more challenging than this. The waiver-wire moves that fantasy gamers are making this week are season-saving moves made at the eleventh hour in reaction to COVID-IR transactions and late-breaking inactives. This reality feels likely to spill over to Week 16 as well. This week’s waiver-wire offerings will be those players who appear likely to occupy near-full-time roles in their upcoming games.
T.J. Watt is making a case for DPOY with his production on the field this season. The fifth-year pro out of Wisconsin had a massive day against the Raven, accounting for six total tackles, a TFL, a forced fumble, and 3.5 sacks of Lamar Jackson. Watt has now contributed 47 tackles, 16 TFLs and 16 sacks in his 10 games played this season. The former first-round pick is the top edge rusher in IDP fantasy football right now and will be for years to come.
What is up DFF Army? It’s that time of the week for us to provide some insightful Week 11 suggestions. Although new information always causes us to reconsider things, we now have enough information to drive decision-making. As we discover trends through the season we will be able to make more determined analyses on specific picks. To go along with matchups and trends, we will look at key fantasy players who have the most beneficial or detrimental matchups.
It was only a matter of time before this Wisconsin Alum made it into the top performers list. Coming off of his worst game of the year, Watt made up for his poor week five in a big way against Seattle Sunday. The fifth-year veteran produced seven total tackles, a TFL, a forced fumble, two sacks, and three defended passes in the game. Watt continues to be a strong IDP option, especially in sack premium leagues, so start him every week with confidence.
