Waiver Pick of the Week: Van Jefferson

Week 12 is in the books, and the injuries are piling up at running back, so let’s hope you weren’t one of the unlucky Fantasy owners that lost one. Christian McCaffrey got knocked out for the season, Dalvin Cook was carted off the field with a shoulder injury, and Darrell Henderson Jr. was spotted at practice wearing a wrap on his thigh.

If you have waiver wire priority, Alexander Mattison is the clear choice given that Cook will be out for at least the next three games, but for everybody else, we’d advise against the quick plugin to fix your running back situation and instead suggest you scoop up this top wide receiver who’s not only going to help you this upcoming weekend but also through your playoff run.

This week, we feature Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson, who is rostered in just 42.9 per cent of ESPN leagues, yet is the 32nd-ranked wide receiver, averaging 9.5 Fantasy points. Since the release of DeSean Jackson and the season-ending injury to Robert Woods, Jefferson’s Fantasy stock has skyrocketed.

You may recall that we recommended Jefferson back in Week Five. That pick didn’t work out as he was only targeted four times, hauling in one reception for 16 yards. Undeterred, we’re giving him more love, and this time, we’re not alone.

Jefferson (6’2″, 195) is the perfect combination of speed and agility with the height to outjump most cornerbacks. He is a constant threat for the deep ball; just last week, he pulled in a 79-yard dime from Matthew Stafford (after which Jefferson even had the audacity to do a Lambeau Leap… as a visiting player — see video below).

Coming off a bye in Week 11, Jefferson turned nine targets into 93 yards receiving with a touchdown. Stafford passed the ball 38 times and tossed three touchdowns in a high scoring showdown against the Packers. In Week 13, the Rams face a struggling Jaguar defense that’s allowing 25.7 points and 258 yards passing per game.

Expect the Rams, coming off a disappointing loss to the Packers, to have a statement performance and lay a beat down on the Jaguars. Aaron Donald and Von Miller will be aggressive in trying to pressure rookie QB Trevor Lawrence, and Jalen Ramsey will be assigned to shut down Marvin Jones Jr.

We’re expecting a couple of Jacksonville turnovers, and plenty of short fields for the Rams to pile on the points. Add Jefferson to your team this week for a great insurance plan who you can use as your flex player or as part of your regular lineup in favourable matchups.

RotoRob Tune of the Day

American singer James Taylor has been at it since 1966. In 1970, he released his second album, Sweet Baby James, and from this effort came his breakthrough hit, “Fire and Rain,” which reached No. 3 on the charts.

The Wire Troll: Derek Grant Ascends in Anaheim

November 27, 2021 | By RotoRob | Comments Comments Off on The Wire Troll: Derek Grant Ascends in Anaheim
Need help in hits? Katchouk can provide some assistance in this department, piling up four on Friday, giving him 25 in the last seven games alone. Over this same stretch, the rookie has pitched in with three helpers, and has 10 PMs so far this season, so could deliver a boost in this area as well.

Waiver Pick of the Week: Curtis Samuel

November 25, 2021 | By Trevor Penn | Comments (0)
Last year, Samuel was a key piece of Carolina’s offense, chipping in with short receptions and acting as a constant threat in the run game. He was one of Washington’s big free agent pickups in the offseason, so the coaching staff want him to be a major piece of the attack.

The Wire Troll: Ed Davis Rebounding in Cleveland

November 20, 2021 | By RotoRob | Comments Comments Off on The Wire Troll: Ed Davis Rebounding in Cleveland
The move paid immediate dividends as Birch — mostly known as a defensive specialist — came through with 14 points on Thursday. He followed that up with a near double-double on Friday, adding four steals and two blocks. Birch could stick as a starter for the time being, so expect his bucket count to rise while he provides help on the glass and pitches in with the occasional block or two. He’s definitely a better post player than he’s given credit for, and now he has a chance to prove it.

The Wire Troll: In Search of Penalty Minutes

November 13, 2021 | By RotoRob | Comments Comments Off on The Wire Troll: In Search of Penalty Minutes
Don’t expect much in the way of points from the veteran, but with penalties in back-to-back games and as many as 53 minutes in a season before, he can help in that regard. The journeyman’s ice time is up and he’s already recorded 35 blocks with 20 hits, so could definitely be an asset in leagues that track these stats.
