Fantasy College Football: Waiver Wire

If you want to have long-term success in fantasy football, you need to work the wire. Here’s a look at the top waiver wire adds of the week, including Shea Patterson’s replacement, Jordan Ta’amu …


Jordan Ta’amu, Ole Miss —

% Owned: >1%

Shea Patterson’s unfortunate PCL tear has left many fantasy owners flocking to waivers this week to snatch up a quarterback to finish out the season. The next man up for the Rebels is Jordan Ta’amu. Ta’amu has gone 7-for-11 this season with 78 yards and has rushed six times for 52 yards. He’s a bit of an unknown, but he gets to take on Arkansas, Kentucky, and Louisiana Lafayette in three of the last five games, which basically means there’s a chance Ta’amu could show out.

Charlie Brewer, Baylor —

% Owned: >1%

Baylor has been rather disappointing this season, to say the least. However, their offense has had its high points this season despite playing with three quarterbacks. Anu Solomon has taken a backseat, and Zach Smith is treading water as the starter. There’s a strong chance that Brewer will take over the starting job before the end of the season. And if his 109-yard, two-touchdown performance in relief of Zach Smith means anything, he could help your team make a playoff push at the end of the season.

Running Back

Shamari Brooks, Tulsa —

% Owned: 11%

Tulsa’s D’Angelo Brewer has established himself as an RB1 when healthy. However, with the spotty quarterback play coming from Chad President, Shamari Brooks may have emerged as an RB2. Brooks has rushed for 100 yards in three straight contests with five touchdowns. Brewer’s injury last week helped Brooks top 150 yards, but he has proved over time that he still retains value even with Brewer on the field.

Josh Hokit, Fresno State —

% Owned: 1%

Fresno State has looked substantially better this season and really caught the attention of College Football fans by smacking San Diego State this past weekend. Hokit doesn’t top 100 yards from week to week, but he has a nose for the end zone, as he’s scored five touchdowns in the past three games.

Wide Receivers

Reggie Bonnafon, Louisville —

% Owned: 3%

The quarterback-turned-wideout-turned-running back has seen a steady increase in action over the past two weeks as the second rushing option to Lamar Jackson. His appeal comes as a running back that can play the wide receiver spot in most fantasy lineups, similar to how Jaylen Samuels can play tight end.

Korey Robertson, Southern Miss —

% Owned: 16%

No, I’m not talking about the Duck Dynasty wife. Korey Robertson has made a splash in the Golden Eagle offense this season by scoring seven touchdowns and racking up 500+ yards. Robertson is a good bet to either find the end zone and/or put up 100+ receiving yards on a weekly basis, making him a quality fantasy option.
