Fantasy Football playoffs begin in Week 15 in many leagues, and while the core of most rosters is already defined, there are always potential big contributors emerging later in the season. This is especially true in the wide receiver, where KJ Osborn and Amon-Ra St. Brown have shown they can be considered worthy during the Fantasy Playoffs. Osborn caught a 62-yard pass in Week 14. St. Brown was shot 12 times for the second game in a row and finished with eight receptions.
Should Osborn or St. Brown be among your top picks for Week 15 Fantasy Football waiver sons? And what other Fantasy Football waivers are worth adding to boost your playoff chances? Before figuring out who to target on the Week 15 Fantasy Football waiver thread, be sure to see what SportsLine Hall of Fame member Scott Engel has to say.

Now he’s revealed the best widely available Fantastic football free agents entering week 15. You can see his top Fantasy NFL waiver picks and full analysis on SportsLine.
Best fantasy football waiver son picks for week 15
One Engel player advises fantasy players to target on the Week 15 waiver thread: Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny. Injuries have continuously kept Penny from producing as hoped since the Seahawks drafted him in the first round in 2018. This season he had just 27 races heading into Seattle’s Week 14 game with the Texans.
Penny, however, entered this week’s game ready to start, and he faced a Houston defense that had allowed RBs the most rushing yards this season. He won for the best performance of his career, finishing with 137 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries. Penny has breathed new life into a sagging Seattle racing game and could be heading for a strong end to the 2021 season.
Engel also highly recommends Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman. The Ravens viewed Bateman as a centerpiece in hopes of improving their passing game this season. He was drafted in the first round by Baltimore this season, but the start of his first professional campaign was delayed by a groin problem.
After undergoing groin surgery, Bateman landed on the injured reserve to start the 2021 season. He wasn’t able to make his NFL debut until Week 6. But Bateman may have ultimately delivered a groundbreaking performance in Week 14. He caught seven of eight targets for 103 yards against Cleveland on Sunday. Bateman might be ready to make a significant contribution to Fantasy during the playoffs.
