Fantasy football waiver wire, Week 15: Best players to add include Raheem Mostert, DeAndre Washington

The Week 15 Fantasy football waiver wire will see plenty of traffic this week after a number of low-owned players put on impressive performances. Rams tight end Tyler Higbee, who's filling in for the injured Gerald Everett (knee), hauled in seven receptions for 116 yards in Los Angeles' victory over the Seahawks. Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown continues his stellar rookie campaign, catching five passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns against the Raiders. Can either of those players be trusted in your Week 15 Fantasy football lineups? These are the type of questions owners are asking themselves before submitting their Week 15 waiver wire claims. And with Fantasy football injuries beginning to pile up across the league, the wire will be stocked with players who have week-winning potential.

One player Smith is advising owners to target on the Week 15 waiver wire: 49ers running back Raheem Mostert.

Mostert has stormed onto the scene in recent weeks for the Niners, scoring at least one touchdown in his last three games. In San Francisco's thrilling victory over the Saints on Sunday, Mostert carried the ball 10 times for 69 yards and a touchdown, while also catching two passes for 40 yards and another score. Even with both Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman in the lineup, the fifth-year running back ended up leading the 49ers' backfield in touches (12), yards (109) and touchdowns (two). He'll look to make himself a staple in San Francisco's backfield again in Week 15 against the Falcons, a defense that gives up 26.4 points per game, the seventh-worst mark in the NFL.  

Another waiver wire target he's all over entering Week 15: Raiders running back DeAndre Washington.

Washington is coming off an impressive performance against the Titans on Sunday. With Josh Jacobs (shoulder) sidelined, Washington stepped into a lead role and finished with 14 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown. He also proved to be a lethal pass catching threat out of the backfield, hauling in six receptions for an additional 43 yards. Washington led the Raiders in carries and finished third in receiving yards against the Titans, and if Jacobs remains sidelined this week, the fourth-year running back will remain heavily involved in Oakland's offensive game plan. 

Smith is also all-in on a shocking running back who has massive upside. This player is still widely available and could be a huge boost to your Fantasy football roster moving forward. Anyone who adds this player could hit it big.

So which players should you target on the waiver wire before Week 15? And which shocking running back could lead your team to Fantasy glory? Visit SportsLine now to see the best league-winning free agents entering Week 15, all from the Fantasy expert named one of the most accurate in the nation.
