Well fantasy football fanatics, it’s that time of year again. The playoffs are approaching and things are ever-changing week to week, including the best waiver wire targets.

The New England Patriots running back was fresh off a 201 yard, four touchdown performance against the Indianapolis Colts in week 11. The upside seemed huge, and then came Thursday.

On Tuesday morning, Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers released running back LaGarrette Blount for leaving the field early during the Steelers loss on the previous Sunday.

By Thursday, Blount had already re-signed with his former team, the Patroits.

Then, Gray overslept for a team meeting resulting in his benching against the Detroit Lions.

Blount would play in his place and had a two touchdown performance while Gray watched from the sidelines.

Things change fast in fantasy football, but that’s why were here to help.

On top of trying to secure your workhorse running backs handcuff, there are a few other targets worth taking a shot at as you prepare for the playoffs.
