Marcel Reese (RB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Stash in deeper leagues/All PPR leagues. Analysis: I mentioned Marcel Reece earlier, and he once again becomes worth a look this week for most owners, as he is still available in over 90% of leagues. Furthermore, Rashad Jennings left the game in Week Five after suffering a hamstring injury, and his status is up in the air... Read More

Andre Ellington (RB, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash in all leagues Analysis: I mentioned Ellington last week as someone to keep an eye on in the event he could win the confidence of his coaching staff over struggling teammate Rashard Mendenhall. He took yet another step towards accomplishing this in Week 5 by tallying 52 yards on just 7 carries. He also had... Read More

Zac Stacy (RB, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Add in all leagues Analysis: Stacy got the start in Week Five against Jacksonville and managed 78 yards on 14 carries (5.6 YPC) before being knocked out with a minor rib injury. He is expected to start next week, albeit in a tough game against Houston. The St. Louis running back situation has been a... Read More

In this space, we will highlight NFL running backs (RBs) that are recommended fantasy football waiver wire pickups to consider as candidates for Week Six of the 2013 fantasy football season, and your fantasy football rosters.       Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 6 Running Backs  Zac Stacy (RB, St. Louis Rams) Baller Move: Add in all...

Danny Woodhead (RB, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Stash in all PPR leagues, Start in deeper PPR leagues. Analysis: I called for this same move last week, and with Woodhead still available in nearly 60% of leagues, it bears repeating. Woodhead continues to make the most of his opportunities, and as a result, his role should continue to increase. While Ryan Mathews performed better this week,... Read More

Mike Goodson (RB, NYJ) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash in deep leagues. Analysis: Goodson's four-game suspension is now over. With Ivory sidelined indefinitely, Goodson will have a chance to show why many people believe he is the most talented and dynamic back on the Jets' roster. It would be crazy to start him immediately, but if you are weak out of the RB... Read More

Andre Ellington (RB, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash in all leagues. Analysis:  Ellington's potential path to becoming the Cardinals' feature back is really coming into focus. Mendenhall continues to disappoint, with only 21 yards on 12 carries this past week. He dropped the ball both literally and figuratively, fumbling twice and dropping an easy catch. He also failed to hit the... Read More

Rashad Jennings (RB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash/Start (probably) in all leagues. Analysis: Jennings will likely never get to take the trip to Honolulu for a Pro Bowl, but he could be a sneaky play in Week Five. With Darren McFadden suffering a hamstring injury and no timetable yet given for his recovery, it is a pretty safe bet that DMC will not play... Read More

Roy Helu, Jr. (RB, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash in deeper leagues. Analysis: Helu Jr. is worth a stab in the dark if you have or can safely make the space on your bench. He is also close to a must-add for Morris owners who wish to cover themselves. Alfred Morris left the Redskins' Week Four victory over Oakland with a rib injury. The... Read More

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 5 Running Backs (RB)

In this space, we will highlight NFL running backs (RBs) that are recommended fantasy football waiver wire pickups to consider as candidates for Week Five of the 2013 fantasy football season, and your fantasy football rosters.     2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 5 Running Backs    Roy Helu Jr. (RB, WAS): Baller Move: Stash...

Danny Woodhead (RB, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in all PPR leagues; start in deeper PPR leagues. ANALYSIS: Ryan Mathews owners already know that Woodhead is starting to see an increased role. Add this to Ronnie Brown's TD vulture, and Mathews owners are certainly starting to sweat. Woodhead has now seen double-digit touches in back to-back weeks, and he put up some solid numbers for... Read More

Jason Snelling (RB, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in deeper leagues or PPR leagues. ANALYSIS: Snelling proved Sunday that the RB situation in Atlanta is going to be a real time-share with Jackson out for the next few weeks. Snelling tallied four catches and 111 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown in Sunday's upset loss to the Dolphins.  Jacquizz saw more snaps and had more... Read More

Marcel Reece (RB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in deeper PPR leagues. ANALYSIS: Reece has a very nice match up this week against the Redskins reeling defense. Reece is a monster, and he has a good opportunity on Sunday to show that he deserves his new contract. He showed his raw talent last season after DMC went down, and he is one of... Read More

Bilal Powell (RB, NYJ) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in all leagues. ANALYSIS: Bilal's slow start has contributed to him still being available in most leagues. While he is on bye next week, he is worth taking a stab at if he is available in your league. With Chris Ivory banged-up from a hamstring injury he received early in the Jet's Week Three win over the...

2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 4 Running Backs (RB)

In this space, we will highlight recommended fantasy football waiver wire pickups to consider as candidates for Week Four of the 2013 fantasy football season, and your fantasy football rosters.     2013 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups: Week 4 Running Backs    Bilal Powell (RB, NYJ): BALLER MOVE: Stash in all leagues. ANALYSIS: Bilal's slow start has contributed to... Read More

Fred Jackson (RB, BUF) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add immediately in all leagues. ANALYSIS: I’m shocked that Fred Jackson is still available in nearly 50% of leagues. In a year with such a thin RB class, Jackson should at least be riding the pine in nearly every league. In spite of being C.J. Spiller‘s backup, Jackson has outperformed Buffalo’s starter and forced... Read More

Bryce Brown (RB, PHI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in all leagues. ANALYSIS: As much as I hate to admit it as a LeSean McCoy owner and fan, Chip Kelly’s offense makes a full season for Shady far from a guarantee. Should McCoy miss any time, Bryce Brown, still available in 60% of leagues and former High School Player of the Year, stands to step... Read More

Joique Bell (RB, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add immediately in all leagues. ANALYSIS: While Bell has been claimed in most leagues, he is still available in many. Joique is a versatile back who has put up huge numbers so far, especially considering he’s a backup. Reggie Bush is in no danger of losing his starting role, but his injury list is growing....

Mikel Leshoure (RB, DET) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in deeper leagues (12+ teams). ANALYSIS: Mikel Leshoure is available in 90% of leagues. This is probably not a shock to most, considering he has yet to register a carry, but he is worth stashing in deeper leagues. Last season, Leshoure put up over 1,000 yards from scrimmage with nine touchdowns on... Read More

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in deeper leagues (12+ teams) ANALYSIS: Only consider Rodgers if you are desperately thin at RB. Depending on the severity of Steven Jackson‘s injury, Rodgers could see some time as a starter in a timeshare with Jason Snelling. That said, Snelling outperformed Rodgers in Week Two, running for 19 yards and a touchdown on... Read More

6 years ago


James Starks (RB, GB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add immediately in all leagues. ANALYSIS: With Eddie Lacy leaving Week Two with a concussion, Starks made the most of his opportunity to head Green Bay’s rushing attack. The versatile Starks ran roughshod over the suspect Redskins’ defense to the tune of 132 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. He also added 36 receiving... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 15) - Targets and Avoids

Week 13 was a pretty chalky one with just three underdogs winning outright. The biggest upset was the Broncos absolutely annihilating the Houston Texans who were still celebrating their "Super Bowl" win against the Patriots the week prior. Three weeks remain and I'd be a fool to think there are hundreds who are reading this... Read More
