Here's my top recommended waiver wire and streaming targets ahead of the coming week. Waiver Wire targets are designed to be multi-week roster-worthy options while streaming options are designed to be one-week lineup options based on matchup, injuries, and/or situation. To be eligible as a waiver wire or streaming option, the player must be available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues.
Top Waiver Wire Targets of the Week:
Tank Dell (WR - Houston Texans) - Dell is available in 52% of leagues after a string of down performances and a recent bye week - he won't be available going into next week. He returned to his early-season form that saw him go for back-to-back 20+ point games in weeks 2 and 3, posting an absurd 114 yards and 2 TDs (29.6 points) on 6 catches (11 targets). It's clear Dell has established himself as Stroud's preferred deep-threat weapon. The consistency won't be there, but the upside absolutely is. He needs to be added if available.
Antonio Gibson (RB - Washington Commanders) - Antonio Gibson somehow finds himself available in over 55% of leagues on Yahoo despite a fairly stable floor in PPR leagues. He is not the lead back in Washington - don't expect double-digit carries much if at all. He is a high-volume receiving back. He's gotten 5+ targets in 4 of his last 7 games and has posted 8+ points in 4 of his last 5 as a result, most recently going for 76 total yards and 12.6 points on 11 touches (5 catches) in Week 9. RB is a very scarce position and if you can find a serviceable plug-in RB3 with a reasonable floor and some upside in the event of an injury to Brian Robinson, take it. Gibson should not be on waivers, but if he is, scoop him up.
Keaton Mitchell (RB - Baltimore Ravens) - This is your potential 'home run' on waivers this week. I was a big fan of Mitchell this preseason as a potential sleeper, but he had fallen victim to injuries, opening the season on IR to a shoulder injury, then seeing his first action in Week 6 (0 touches) and tweaking his hamstring in Week 7, costing him Week 8. This past week was his first real action and boy did he produce. He was wildly explosive with a 60-yard run and a 40-yard TD in a 9-138-1 (20.4 points) game. He didn't get a ton of snaps (13) but he will in the near future at his efficiency. A depth RB option with RB2 upside down the stretch.
Tyjae Spears (RB - Tennessee Titans) - Similar story to Gibson, just to a slightly lesser extent. Spears has been trending down in utilization over the last few weeks but has still posted 6+ points in five consecutive games and registered 3+ catches (as well as 4+ targets) in five of his last six. He's worth the stash with his matchup-based plug-and-play availability and the handcuff value he offers behind Henry.
Demario Douglas (WR - New England Patriots) - Demario Douglas continues to be heavily involved in the Patriots offense, leading the team in targets for a second straight week with 7 targets, now making it three consecutive games of 6+ targets, 4+ catches, and 8+ fantasy points. He's not necessarily a priority add, but definitely someone I'd put a claim in for if looking to add some stability and WR depth.

Cade Otton (TE - Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
