David Johnson (RB, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 58% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Assuming Andre Ellington misses at least one more week, David Johnson remains fantasy relevant.

Davante Adams (WR, GB) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 4-5 as Low-End WR2 ANALYSIS: A second round pick in 2014 by the Packers, Davante Adams thrived in his role as the third wide receiver on Green Bay's depth chart as a rookie.

Denard Span (OF, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues ANALYSIS: Upon returning from a core injury on Sunday, April 19, Denard Span should have immediately been added in all but the shallowest of leagues.

Kevin Kiermaier (OF, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep AL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: Kevin Kiermaier joined the Rays' in 2014 as a rookie meant to provide depth and defense in the outfield, but found his way into the starting lineup by June. In 2015, his defense will still keep him in the lineup everyday, but his presence at the plate... Read More

Cameron Maybin (OF, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep NL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: After re-loading the outfield, the Padres helped out Cameron Maybin's fantasy value by shipping him off to Atlanta in the deal that netted AJ Preller and Co. star closer Craig Kimbrel. Maybin came up with the Tigers in 2007 as a potential five-tool player, but didn't get... Read More

Chris Owings (SS, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep NL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: The Diamondbacks gave the starting shortstop job to rookie Nick Ahmed, but Chris Owings seems to have locked down second base.

Asdrubal Cabrera (2B/SS, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in AL-Only or Deep Mixed Leagues OWNED IN: 40% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Asdrubal Cabrera is not going to be the Asdrubal Cabrera we saw put up 25 and 17 in 2011, but that doesn't mean he can't help your fantasy team.

Shin-Soo Choo (OF, TEX) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~125 Overall ANALYSIS: Shin-Soo choo is coming off a year in which he posted the worst slash line of his career: .242/.340/.374. Injuries to Choo and several teammates hold some of the blame, but it is fair to say he did not live up to expectations in his first season with the Texas Rangers. With a healthy lineup behind... Read More

Prince Fielder (1B, TEX) - 2015 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target as High-End 1B2 ANALYSIS: All this talk about Prince Fielder's declining career must stop.

Teddy Bridgewater (QB, MIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Keeper Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Over two months ago, I wrote about Bridgewater, claiming that at the very least, the rookie out of Louisville could be owned in long-term keeper leagues that were deep enough for an owner to stash him.

Caleb Sturgis (K, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues OWNDE IN: 46% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Kickers tend to go under-appreciated in fantasy football.

Marion Grice (RB, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: With Andre Ellington likely not playing in Week 14, rookie back Marion Grice becomes an interesting add late in the week.

Kenny Stills (WR, NO) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues OWNED IN: 56% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: With a career-high 162 yards in Week 13 against the Steelers, Kenny Stills has cemented himself as a legitimate threat to opposing defenses.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 58% of Fleaflicker Leauges ANALYSIS: The rookie out of Auburn broke the 100-yard mark for the second time in three games in week 13 against the Raiders.

Ryan Tannehill (QB, MIA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues OWNED IN: 68% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Ryan Tannehill has improved his completion percentage and quarterback rating in each of his three years in the NFL, and could be headed for the first winning season of his young career.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 73% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Delanie Walker is coming off a monster Week 13, having caught five passes for 155 yards against the Eagles.

Ben Tate (RB, MIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Most Leagues OWNED IN: 73% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Vikings picked up the 26-year-old Tate after Cleveland cut him following a two-carry, negative nine-yard showing in Week 11 against Houston.
