14 weeks of NFL action are officially in the books, which means it’s time for the fantasy football playoffs. Whether you’re looking to take home a championship or just avoid coming in last, now is the time to search the waiver wire for all the best available quarterbacks. Heading into Week 15, you should set your eyes on Ryan Tannehill, Derek Carrand Drew Lock.

Note that in order to make this list, the player had to be available in over 50% of fantasy leagues. If you’re in smaller leagues, there may be better players available. Make sure to check your waivers to see if there are any diamonds in the rough before submitting your claims.

Ryan Tannehill, Derek Carr Highlight Fantasy Football Week 15 Quarterback Waiver Wire Streams

Ryan Tannehill

Adam Gase should be banned from the league for what he did to Ryan Tannehill. The former first-round pick is finally playing up to his draft stock in Tennessee, and Week 14 might have been his best week yet. Facing off against an overmatched Oakland Raiders secondary, Tannehill recorded 391 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He entered Week 14 as the QB6 since Week 7, and he’ll probably be even better after this latest outing. Not only is Tannehill a perfect stream against the Houston Texans, but you should leave him in your lineup for the remainder of the season.

Derek Carr

Derek Carr didn’t play well in Week 14, but he finished the night with a solid stat line, and that’s all that matters for fantasy. The former second-round pick ended his day with 263 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. This is a perfectly solid stat line for a quarterback stream, and he should easily meet or exceed those numbers in Week 15. Carr and company face off against a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that just got destroyed by the previously-struggling Los Angeles Chargers. This unit simply isn’t the same without Jalen Ramsey and Carr has a chance to finish as a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2. Either way, it’s production you can be happy with from the waiver wire.

Drew Lock

Is Drew Lock the real deal? It’s too early to know for sure, but the second-round rookie sure looks good so far. Lock had one of the best performances of the week, completing 22 of 27 attempts for 309 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. This comes one week after he posted 134 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in his NFL debut. Trusting Drew Lock is certainly dangerous, but he should be able to rack up yardage in Week 15 against Kansas City. Whether it’s part of a natural shootout or just garbage time, Lock should finish the week with a high yardage total and a couple of touchdowns.
