Fantasy football approaches its halfway point, and the waiver wire can make or break a someone’s season. You could either find the next Puca Nacua or James Robinson or someone who takes you out of the playoff race altogether. The first player to look at is one if you need a quarterback. Tennessee Titans rookie Will Levis looks like a perfect fit in the Titans offense since taking over for the injured Ryan Tannehill in Week 8. In those two weeks, it has been up and down for Levis.

In the first week, Levis debuted with 239 yards passing and four touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons, who currently rank sixth in defensive yards allowed per game. This accounted for 26.62 fantasy points for Levis. The second week, Levis cooled down a bit against TJ Watt and the Pittsburgh Steelers, with the rookie putting up more yards than his first week (262) but no scores.
This week, Levis takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense, who have a formidable foe for any rookie QB. There are many stars on that roster, such as linebacker Devin White and safety Antoine Winfield Jr. However, the Buccaneers rank 29th in the entire league in defensive yards allowed per game, according to Fox Sports’s rankings. Levis was named the starter for Week 10 by Titans head coach Mike Vrabel. Expect a big game from the young QB this week and have him as your QB2 or starter if you are dealing with bye week troubles.
The next player who should be on everyone’s waiver list is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Trey Palmer. Even though Palmer is behind stars Mike Evans and Chris Godwin on the wide receiver depth chart, Palmer has received more targets since the bye week, with seven, two, six, and four respectively. He is also the first man up as the WR2 if one of Evans or Godwin is dealing with an injury.

In the Buccaneers matchup with the Titans this week, I would not discount Palmer having an impact on Sunday’s game. Palmer is more of a long-term option as a WR3 or flex option, but don’t discount Palmer’s immediate impact in the Buccaneers offense. He can explode on any play.
