Baller Move: Add in 12+ Team Leagues Owned In: 22% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: Tommy Joseph catches a lot of flack from Fantasy Baseball Managers and those who believe he is just the Philadelphia gatekeeper at first base during the organization's rebuild, and the reasoning is perplexing.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Ben Roethlisberger has been slinging to start the season, and it looks like second-year receiver Sammie Coates has caught the quarterback's fancy.

Clive Walford (TE, OAK) - NFL Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: It turns out that a slightly disappointing Week 1 performance isn't a death sentence, and Clive Walford embodied this lesson with a huge bounce-back game in Week 2. Walford caught just three passes on an encouraging five targets against the Saints to start...

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14- and 16-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: It will always be a gamble, but with Marqise Lee's athleticism and agility, the dunk-down passes can net some serious results.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- an 14-Team Leagues, All PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 47% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Phillip Dorsett has been targeted plenty over the first two weeks, and considering how great Andrew Luck's start to the season has been, those targets mean a whole lot.

Davante Adams (WR, GB) - NFL Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12- and 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: The Week 1 excitement surrounding Davante Adams has cooled and expectations have been trimmed, but that doesn't mean the hype didn't have a lot to back it up.

Baller Move: Add in All Leagues Owned in: 13% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: Between young standouts like Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Corey Seager, Trevor Story, Tim Anderson, and Alex Bregman; it would seem like the MLB has been given the unusual gift of early shortstop development in bulk. Then former Vanderbilt star and #1 overall... Read More

Cameron Maybin (OF, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in 12+ Team Leagues Owned in: 24% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: Cameron Maybin can run fast, and make contact with the ball.

Carson Wentz (QB, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in 12+ Team Leagues Owned in: 7% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: The Vikings lost Bridgewater, got desperate, snagged Sam Bradford, and suddenly Carson Wentz found himself off to a promising start to his NFL career.

Tajae Sharpe (WR, TEN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in All Leagues Owned in: 46% of Fleaflicker Leagues Analysis: Despite a combined 2,600 yards and 12 TDs in his final two seasons at UMass, Tajae Sharpe slipped to the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft and rewarded the Titans for their faith in Week One.
