CFB Waiver Wire: Players to Pick Up for Championship Week
CFB Waiver Wire: Players to Pick Up for Championship Week

This article is part of our CFB Waiver Wire series.

Welcome to another installment of the waiver wire watch. It's time for the fantasy championship! As I've done for all of the fantasy regular season and playoffs, I'll pick two players from every conference who either caught my eye in the previous week or who have a favorable matchup in the championship week. As always, I'll get to any questions or comments you have in the comments section below.

AAC

Tyler Snead, WR, East Carolina
Sorry about the Demetrius Mauney recommendation last week —  that was clearly the wrong direction in the backfield. I didn't see Darius Pinnix Jr. getting 27 carries as he hadn't recorded a carry since early September. I'll go with a much safer option this week in Tyler Snead, who has managed an eye-popping 35 catches for 366 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games. East Carolina seems very content on dropping off check-down passes to Snead, which results in monster PPR performances for the freshman.

Jadan Blue, WR, Temple
I'm not sure if the Owls even know if they have any other receivers as Blue garnered 19 targets in their recent loss at Cincinnati. Blue has three straight 100-yard receiving performances and is averaging more than 16 targets per game in that stretch. That's far too much volume to ignore. Quarterback Anthony Russo should also be a strong start against a weak UConn defense this week.
