Fantasy Football Week 18 Waiver Wire: Brock Purdy, Zack Moss, Rashid Shaheed can help win your leagues


The only story that matters today in the NFL is the health of Buffalo safety Damar Hamlin, who collapsed on the field during Monday night’s game at Cincinnati. We hope to get a positive update Tuesday, and our thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and the Bills organization.

The game Monday night between the Bills and Bengals was postponed in the first quarter, and once the NFL determines what will happen with that game, then we will update you on your Fantasy leagues for Week 17. Clearly that is of little importance right now, but we know you have questions regarding scoring for your Fantasy championships.

If you would like to support Hamlin, he organized a fundraiser in 2020 called the Chasing M’s Foundation Community Toy Drive, in which he raised money to distribute toys at Kelly and Nina’s Daycare Center in Pennsylvania.

Hamlin, 24, created the GoFundMe page in December 2020 to purchase toys for children ahead of the holidays, writing “as I embark on my journey to the NFL, I will never forget where I come from and I am committed to using my platform to positively impact the community that raised me.”

The goal of the GoFundMe page when it was created was to raise $2,500. As of Tuesday morning, the donations were over $3.5 million. You can make a donation here.

As for the Week 18 waiver wire, which will run overnight on its normal schedule in CBS Fantasy leagues, we know there are some of you who still have leagues continuing into the final week of the regular season, so we want to support your needs. With that in mind, here are the players you could be looking to add if you need help.

Editor’s note: For this waiver wire column, we are only looking at players rostered in less than 65 percent of CBS Sports leagues.
