Notable waiver wire pickups


Robert Woods (WR)

Even with Nico Collins acting as the obvious front-runner for the Texan’s offense, Robert Woods should have plenty of volume going into his matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. Against a 24th-ranked defense, Woods should sit comfortably in the 8-10 target range. Woods already commands a 22.1 percent target share on the fifth most pass-friendly offense. Especially as CJ Stroud gets more comfortable in his role under center, Robert Woods looks like a great WR3/Flex option in a PPR league. 

Roschon Johnson (RB)

With the league-changing injuries this week, there are some standout running backs on the waivers, namely Jerome Ford and Matt Breida, who are taking over their respective starting spots. If you are not lucky enough to pick one of them up, turn your attention to Roschon Johnson. Johnson recorded only four carries for 32 yards on Sunday and while his recent stats are underwhelming, his future may be bright. At some point, even the abysmal Bears offense will start recognizing Johnson’s incredible efficiency of 5.8 yards per carry. Although Johnson may not be an obvious start this Sunday, after Ford and Breida are off the board, Johnson will be an excellent investment to stash.
