Ivan Nova (SP, NYY) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues ANALYSIS: Ivan Nova, the Yankees # 4 starter, is available in more than 50% of mixed league formats and really should not be.  He hits 93 mph consistently on his fastball and drops down to 80 mph on his curve which is enough to keep most hitters off balance.  But the...

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

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

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...

Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups - Quarterbacks (QBs)

In this space we will highlight some NFL quarterbacks (QBs) that need to be considered on the Week 11 waiver wire for your fantasy football teams. Some of these quarterbacks may have a good matchup for Week 11, have been putting up relevant points recently, or are just under owned.   Fantasy Football Week 11 Waiver Wire -... Read More

Case Keenum - Houston Texans

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues (for the right matchups) Analysis: Case Keenum had already put up a very good game against the Chiefs’ 3rd ranked passing defense and proved that was no fluke in week 9.  He is now officially fantasy relevant following a 20-of-34 350 yards and three touchdown performance in his week 9 Sunday night matchup against the Colts.  He... Read More

Nick Foles - Philadelphia Eagles

Baller Move: Add in All Leagues Analysis: Nick Foles’ 13 TD and 0 INT are absolutely legitimate.  Even when you try to discount his 7 TD performance against the porous Raiders defense you can’t deny his 6 TD and 0 INT in his other starts.  He faces the Packers 19th ranked D in week 10 and should be able to...

Mike Glennon – Tampa Bay Bucs

Baller Move: Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis: Mike Glennon survived his short-week matchup against the Carolina Panthers’ fourth-ranked defense, and followed that by almost leading the undermanned Bucs to a seemingly improbable upset of the 7-1 Seahawks.  In a tough week 9 matchup Glennon played carefully throwing 17-23 with 168 yards and 2 TD/0 INT.  Despite consecutive matchups against top...

Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups - Quarterbacks (QBs)

Mike Glennon, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baller Move: Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis: Mike Glennon survived his short-week matchup against the Carolina Panthers fourth-ranked defense, and now he faces an equally tough Week 9 matchup against the Seahawks.  The positive here is that the Bucs seem to be letting him air it out, calling for 51 passing attempts in Week 8, on which Glennon managed...

Carson Palmer, Arizona Cardinals

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Analysis: Palmer has solidified himself as a QB1 in the Cardinals pass-happy offense. Although the Cardinals have a BYE in Week 9, Palmer is an attractive player to consider for the remainder of the season.  He has multiple weapons to exploit in Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Ellington, and he’s a proven passer with an ability to... Read More

Terrelle Pryor, Oakland Raiders

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Analysis: Pryor continues to fly under the radar as an above-average QB option.  Despite his mediocre passing game, he’s able generate plus numbers with his elite running ability.  His recent 93-yard run set a new record for longest ever by a QB, and his 106 yards total with a TD were his best...

Terrelle Pryor (QB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Analysis: Pryor comes off his BYE week facing a rejuvenated Steelers team which just held the Baltimore Ravens to fewer than 300 total yards.  Even though Pryor stumbled in Week Six against the stellar Kansas City defense, he was able to sneak out a decent performance thanks to his 56 rushing...

Ryan Tannehill (QB, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues Analysis: Tannehill couldn’t lead the Dolphins to a fourth-quarter comeback against Buffalo in Week Seven, mustering only a couple of failed drives and losing a fumble when his team needed him most.  He still threw for 194 yards with three TD and two INT, and with a weak running game, the...

Mike Glennon (QB, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis: Mike Glennon faces a short turnaround this Thursday with a matchup against the Carolina Panthers and their fourth-ranked defense. He’s fared much better than expected so far, but the last two weeks he has also faced two teams near the bottom in passing defense.  Still, he kept the Bucs in the game against... Read More

Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups - Quarterbacks (QBs)

In this space we will highlight some NFL quarterbacks that need to be considered on the week 8 waiver wire for your fantasy football teams.  Some of these quarterbacks may have a good matchup for week 8, have been putting up relevant points recently, or are just under owned.   Fantasy Football Week 8 Waiver Wire -...

Eli Manning (QB, NYG) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE:  Week 7 Matchup Play ANALYSIS: We’re going out on the limb recommending Eli, but his matchup against the 1-4 Vikings is a prime opportunity for him to breakout of his slump.  Eli had the Giants in the game until the final minutes last week, with much credit going to the revived running game that saw Brandon...

Ryan Tannehill (QB, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Week 7 Matchup Play ANALYSIS: In only his second year, Tannehill is displaying the consistency you would expect from a seasoned veteran.  The Dolphins offense runs through him– in five games, he’s thrown the ball at least 34 times and has had at least 236 yards in each game.  With the exception of one poor game against... Read More

Nick Foles (QB, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately ANALYSIS:  The best thing going for Nick Foles in his Week Seven matchup is that he’s playing the Cowboys, who are second in the league in points scored per game at 30.5.  The Eagles are fourth in points scored, averaging 27.7 points per game, so it's very likely that this game will turn into...

Joe Flacco (QB, BAL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Matchup Play in 12 Team Leagues ANALYSIS: Flacco is in line to have a massive passing game in a shootout this week against the strong Green Bay offense.  Factor in that the Packers are the 25th-ranked passing defense, and this looks like a truly great matchup.  Flacco is coming off consecutive 269- and 347-yard performances that... Read More

6 years ago

Terrelle Pryor (QB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12 Team Leagues ANALYSIS: Pryor is an adequate passing QB whose running ability incrementally raises his fantasy value.  Even though he is near last in passing attempts with barely over 100, his 8.13 yards/attempt are top-10, which tells you that the Raiders coaching staff is utilizing the running game to maximize their passing... Read More

6 years ago

Geno Smith (QB, NYJ) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting (1 QB Leagues) / Matchup Play (2 QB Leagues) ANALYSIS: Smith follows up a masterful performance against the Falcons with a surefire letdown game against the 0-4 Steelers.  When you look past the upset win, you’ll see that the Jets didn’t ask much of Smith.  He did throw for three TDs on 16-for-20, but...

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 6 Quarterbacks (QB)

In this space, we will highlight recommended fantasy football waiver wire pickups to consider as candidates for Week Six of the 2013 fantasy football season, and for your fantasy football rosters.     2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 6 Quarterbacks    Geno Smith (QB, New York Jets) Smith follows up a masterful performance against the Falcons...

Brian Hoyer (QB, CLE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting ANALYSIS: Hoyer’s season continues with a winnable matchup in Week Five against Buffalo, who are near dead last in team defense, giving up close to 400 yards per game.  If Hoyer starts his career with three wins, Cleveland fans may just start to begin to forget about LeBron. He's still a candidate to watch... Read More
