Matt Harmon and Andy Behrens break down Monday’s news coming out of week 14 of the NFL schedule before diving into some waiver wire recommendations for teams that need help in week 15

Deebo Samuel’s ankle is probably bad enough that you should drop him, even though Brock Purdy has the 49ers’ offense cruising.

The Atlanta Falcons put Marcus Mariota on IR, clearing the path for rookie QB Desmond Ridder. At the same time, the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins are hoping for big games from their respective QBs (Mike White & Tua Tagovailoa).

Speaking of Tua, he was terrible in the Dolphins’ loss on Sunday night football to a Los Angeles Chargers team that might be getting healthy at exactly the right time.

The guys cover the breaking news of the Dallas Cowboys signing WR T.Y. Hilton before diving into their recommendations for who to grab on your waiver wire and who you should consider dropping from your active roster.
