2013 Waiver Wire Pickups by Position

[ALL]  [RB]  [WR]  [TE]  [QB]  [DEF]

 

Leonard Hankerson (WR, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: It seems as though Hankerson has officially surpassed veteran Roddy White on the Atlanta Falcons' depth chart. Ready for this? Since Week 2, Hankerson has been targeted 25 times, while White has received five targets. Yes, five. This has resulted in White totaling... Read More

Blake Bortles (QB, JAX) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues / Matchup Streamer OWNED IN: 24% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Much like last week, I expect plenty of garbage time opportunities for Bortles in Week 4. The Colts have allowed 15, 15 and 18 total fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks so far. The Colts' first two games saw Tyrod Taylor and... Read More

Tyrod Taylor (QB, BUF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 43% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Look, I'm going to keep talking about Taylor until his ownership beats 50%. This man is a QB1 right now. He's the 3rd highest scoring QB this week (at time of writing) after finishing last week as the 6th highest scoring. The only leagues where he even has... Read More

Thomas Davis, IDP - LB, Carolina Panthers

Baller Move: Add in Standard Leagues (12+ Teams IDP Leagues) Analysis: This week I'm recommending Thomas Davis who has had 26 tackles (6.5/game), 10 assists, 1 Sack, & 1 interception the last 4 weeks.  While these numbers don't really jump off the page they are solid. If you are looking for a waiver pickup you could find worse... Read More

New England, DEF

Baller Move: Add in Standard Leagues (12+ Teams) Analysis: I imagine the Houston Texans had a different vision for the 2013 season.  So far they've been downright awful, and they achieved a new low last week by losing to the Jaguars and scoring just 6 total points.  This week New England will be coming to town to... Read More

Cleveland, DEF

Baller Move: Add in Standard Leagues (12+ Teams) Analysis: Last week I did not do well with recommending the Browns, however this week I will repeat and select them again as a waiver option.  Why?  They are playing the Jaguars and that is good news for their defense.  On the season Jacksonville has given up the most... Read More

Jacoby Jones – WR, Baltimore Ravens

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues only (12+ Teams Standard) Analysis: This season Jacoby Jones has been sidelined in large chunks due to injury.  This week he finally looked to be getting closer to 100% with his best game of the season (4 catches, 103 yards & 1 TD).  The previous two weeks Jones only had 4... Read More

Justin Hunter – WR, Tennessee Titans

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues only (12+ Teams PPR) Analysis: The past two weeks Hunter has tallied 13 target with 8 catches.  This past week Hunter had his breakout game of the season with 6 catches on 6 targets for 109 yards and 1 TD.  Hunter was a second round WR pick this season from Tennessee... Read More

6 years ago

Nate Burleson – WR, Detroit Lions

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues only (12+ Teams PPR, Standard) Analysis: Last week I didn't include an injured WR option for PPR leagues.  Nate Burleson is his name and he's in a big time passing offense in Detroit (the past 2 seasons feature the most passing in Lions history).  Sadly his season has been filled with... Read More

6 years ago

Bernard Pierce, Baltimore Ravens

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Ray Rice has been ineffective for most of the season, and the coaches have said that they will ride the hot hand going forward. Reports are that Rice is dealing with a hip injury, so Pierce may be getting more carries. Pierce hasn’t been that great himself this year, and... Read More

6 years ago


Mike Tolbert, Carolina Panthers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Tolbert has been quietly putting up a solid season, stepping up his pure touchdown-vulture status a little bit. He has 6 touchdowns already this year, but more notably has added over 300 yards from scrimmage. Whether you need a bye week fill-in, or have gaping holes in your RB depth... Read More

6 years ago

Brian Leonard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper PPR Leagues Analysis: Mike James seems to have suffered an ankle fracture, leaving the rushing duties to be split up between Bobby Rainey and Brian Leonard. Rainey looked the most competent with the ball, racking up 45 yards and a touchdown on just 8 carries. His work came mostly later in the... Read More

Bobby Rainey, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Mike James seems to have suffered an ankle fracture, leaving the rushing duties to be split up between Bobby Rainey and Brian Leonard. Rainey looked the most competent with the ball, racking up 45 yards and a touchdown on just 8 carries. His work came mostly later in the game,... Read More

Rashad Jennings, Oakland Raiders

Baller Move: Add in All Leagues Analysis: While DMC remains out, Jennings remains a viable starting option. Jennings didn’t blow up fantasy scoreboards like he did in Week 9, but he still put up 88 yards on 20 totes, and pulled down 2 balls for another 19 yards. These are solid numbers considering Oakland was losing for... Read More

6 years ago

Andre Brown, New York Giants

Baller Move: Add Immediately in All Leagues Analysis: I mentioned to stash him last week, and hopefully you did, as he is now available in just 50% of leagues. Andre Brown needed no time to work back into NFL ready condition, nor to run away with the starting RB job in New York, as I had been... Read More

6 years ago


Christine Michael, Seattle Seahawks

Baller Move: Stash in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Marshawn Lynch has been an elite running back again in 2013, and has been beasting it recently as usual. But in Seattle’s Week 10 matchup against the Falcons Michael rushed 8 times for 33 yards, all of that coming late in the game with the Seahawks in clock-killing mode. His... Read More

6 years ago

Dennis Johnson, Houston Texans

Baller Move: Stash in Deeper Leagues Analysis: The Texans have had some significant changes the past few weeks. Case Keenum has replaced Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback, and Arian Foster’s injuries have finally caught up with him. Foster will miss the remainder of the 2013 NFL season with his most recent back injury, and Ben Tate... Read More

6 years ago

James Starks, Green Bay Packers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: With the injury to Aaron Rodgers, an emphasis on the Green Bay running backs and their rushing attack has become even more important. Eddie Lacy has been a workhorse, and one of the best RBs in the NFL over the past few weeks. But Starks is finally healthy, and has... Read More

6 years ago

Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: The Panthers have a running back committee in their backfield, as Stewart is getting work along with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert. None of the RBs had a great game in Week 10, but Stewart had 22 snaps while Williams only played 20. He was given 13 carries against a... Read More

6 years ago

Donald Brown, Indianapolis Colts

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis: Brown had a decent game in Week 10 versus the Rams, as he excelled in the passing game racking up 5 catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. His rushing stats weren’t pretty, but the Colts were getting dominated by the Rams all game and were forced to throw whenever... Read More

6 years ago


Carson Palmer, Arizona Cardinals

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues (for the right matchups) Analysis: While Palmer hasn’t really been lighting up the fantasy world this year, he has been pretty solid the past couple of weeks and gets a tasty matchup versus the Jaguars in Week 11. In Week 9, Palmer totaled 17.78 points and in Week 10 he added... Read More

6 years ago

Josh McCown, Chicago Bears

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues Analysis: Jay Cutler is down again with a bad ankle, and McCown will get the starting nod in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens. The matchup against the Ravens is a mixed bag since their defense is coming off a 3 INT game in Cincinnati, but are still 23rd in the NFL with... Read More

6 years ago

Case Keenum, Houston Texans

Baller Move: Add in All Leagues Analysis: Case Keenum’s waiver wire star remains bright following a week of mediocre games by other waiver wire QBs.  If you’re looking for a quarterback to add to your fantasy team, do you really want to roll the dice with EJ Manuel or Geno Smith when you can pickup Keenum?  Keenum has... Read More

6 years ago

Antrel Rolle, New York Giants (IDP – S)

BALLER MOVE: Add in Standard Leagues (12+ teams IDP Leagues) ANALYSIS: For the past four games, Antrel Rolle has had 31 total tackles, two sacks and two interceptions (averaging around eight tackles a game).  This past week, Rolle had his best game of the season with 10 solo tackles and a sack.  The two sacks on the... Read More

6 years ago

Detroit, DEF

BALLER MOVE: Add in Standard Leagues (12+ teams) ANALYSIS:  Detroit will be playing a Pittsburgh Steeler offense which has given up the fifth-most points to opposing defenses.  Pittsburgh has struggled this season with turnovers and has a -11 turnover ratio.  While Pittsburgh has the potential to score points, I like Detroit’s chances to have at... Read More

6 years ago


Green Bay, DEF

BALLER MOVE: Add in Standard Leagues (12+ teams) ANALYSIS:  For this coming week, Green Bay will be playing a NY Giants team that has given up the third-most points on the season to opposing defenses.  Overall, the Giants have a -13 turnover ratio on the season and I expect that will not improve this coming... Read More

6 years ago

Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues only (12+ teams Standard, PPR) ANALYSIS: In Week 1 of this season, I mentioned that Patterson was going to be the new Percy Harvin on the Vikings.  So far, he hasn’t lived up to that, and Jerome Simpson has started longer than I anticipated.  But this week Simpson was arrested with a DWI. ... Read More

6 years ago

Leonard Hankerson, Arizona Cardinals

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues only (12+ teams PPR) ANALYSIS: For the past two weeks, Hankerson has had five catches per week and 116 yards.  While these aren’t mind-blowing numbers, they are decent WR numbers in a PPR league.  I am a bit concerned about his viability for long-term success, and I would only... Read More

6 years ago

Mike Brown, Jacksonville Jaguars

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues only (12+ teams Standard, PPR) ANALYSIS:  Last week, I mentioned that Justin Blackmon was suspended for the season.  Due to this suspension, the ‘next man up’ is Mike Brown.  While Brown did not have an opportunity to shine this week (the Jaguars were up the whole game, so they ran the clock... Read More

Dennis Johnson - RB, Houston Texans - Waiver Wire Pickup

With Arian Foster not practicing this week due to hamstring and back issues and Ben Tate facing four broken ribs, things are looking bleak for the running backs in Houston. Third-string option Dennis Johnson might well end up playing simply because there is nobody else. He played most of the second half in Week 9, and while Ben Tate has indicated he will... Read More

6 years ago


Garrett Graham – TE, Houston Texans – Waiver Wire Analysis

Baller Move:  Add in All PPR Leagues Analysis: In the 2 weeks that rookie quarterback Case Keenum has been under center, Houston’s tight end Graham has seen a slight bump in his passing targets.  In week 9 he saw 6 targets, and in the previous game he saw 8 targets.  This is a nice development, and hopefully a sign... Read More

6 years ago

Chris Ogbonnaya – RB, Cleveland Browns - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Stash in PPR Leagues, Deeper Standard Leagues Analysis: There are a few things we know about the Cleveland Browns in 2013.  Their team is much improved, sitting at 4-5, after bringing in a new head coach and offensive scheme.  They didn’t love what they saw in Trent Richardson, and decided to trade their starting RB to... Read More

6 years ago

Montee Ball – RB, Denver Broncos - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Stash in Deeper Leagues, Monitor in All Leagues Analysis: Ball has clearly emerged as the #2 running back for the Broncos after Knowshon Moreno, asRonnie Hillman wasn’t even active in their last game.  The Broncos have already said that they want to lighten the workload for their lead running back Moreno over the next few weeks,... Read More

6 years ago

Andrew Quarless – TE, Green Bay Packers – Waiver Wire Analysis

Baller Move:  Stash in Deeper PPR Leagues Analysis: Since Jermichael Finley went down with his injury, Quarless has been the only relevant tight end in Green Bay.  While his numbers haven’t been great, he did see a big increase in targets and receptions last week after Aaron Rodgers left the game with an injury. Seneca Wallace was then under center for the Packers,... Read More

6 years ago

Tim Wright - TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

After a silent start to the year, Wright has been climbing the ladder to fantasy relevance week by week. After Week 6, when he reached 91 yards, he’s become more impressive with each game. He’s reached the end zone each of the past two weeks and has become one of Mike Glennon‘s favorite receivers. Wright used... Read More

6 years ago


EJ Manuel - QB, Buffalo Bills

After the first few weeks of football, I could hardly have referred to Manuel as a “sleeper” but that all changed after he sprained his LCL on October 3rd. He is set to return to the field this weekend, and he could turn out to be a very solid sleeper surprise for those willing to... Read More

6 years ago

Denard Robinson – RB, Jacksonville Jaguars - Waive Wire Analysis

Baller Move:  Continue Monitoring in All Leagues Analysis: Earlier this week the Jaguars stated that Robinson would be their #2 running back going forward, over both Justin Forsett and Jordan Todman.  At this point of the season, the Jaguars need to be looking towards the future, and the very realistic probability that Maurice Jones-Drew will not be with the team next year... Read More

6 years ago

Riley Cooper – Philadelphia Eagles

Baller Move: Add Immediately (12+ Teams Standard, PPR) Analysis: As much as I don’t want to write, this I cannot deny that Cooper has some real chemistry withNick Foles. Maybe it’s Cooper’s golden locks that immediately bring attention to Foles eyes? The only big issue here is: will Foles remain the starting quarterback in Philadelphia? Because with Michael Vick orMatt... Read More

6 years ago

Doug Baldwin – Seattle Seahawks

Baller Move: Add Immediately (12+ Teams Standard, PPR) Analysis: Last week I failed to mention that the loss of Sidney Rice would present an opportunity for Doug Baldwin. Well now the secret is out and he shined this past week against Tampa Bay. Over the past two weeks Baldwin has received 18 total targets with 13 catches, 166 yards, and... Read More

6 years ago

Aaron Dobson – New England Patriots

Baller Move: Add Immediately (12+ Teams Standard, PPR) Analysis: Aaron Dobson is building chemistry with Tom Brady and it’s showing. This past week Dobson had 2 touchdowns, 130 yards, and 5 catches on 9 targets. For the long haul I see tremendous upside for Dobson because Tom Brady is an elite quarterback, and has been looking for a true #1 wide receiver... Read More
