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,...

Waiver Wire Sleepers for Week 10

Below, I will highlight some fantasy football waiver wire sleepers for Week 10 of the NFL season.  In most fantasy football leagues, waivers run on Tuesday nights.  But there’s still plenty of time to make waiver wire pickups, and as injury reports get released throughout the week new players should be targeted off your fantasy football waiver...

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...

Mike Tolbert – Carolina Panthers

Baller Move:  Add in Deep PPR Leagues Analysis:  Although Jonathan Stewart returned from his multi-week injury yesterday, Tolbert was still involved in the Carolina running back scheme.  DeAngelo Williams did not not play particularly well this week, and the Panthers want to try and keep Stewart healthy for the remainder of their playoff-bound season.  So Tolbert will continue...

Ben Tate – Houston Texans

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Analysis:  Although Arian Foster was active and “got the start” last night, he had to quickly leave the game on the opening drive with a back injury.  He was already very questionable coming into the game with a hamstring issue, and clearly wasn’t ready to play like an NFL running back...

Week 10 Waiver Wire Running Backs (RB) – Overlooked Players

In this space we will highlight some NFL running backs that need to be considered on the week 10 waiver wire. Some of these running backs are still being overlooked in fantasy, and should be owned in all leagues, and some players may not be as widely owned but can help fill-in for a bye week... Read More

Drew Davis, Atlanta Falcons - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in Deeper PPR Leagues Analysis:  With Roddy White still nursing an injury, and Julio Jones out for the year, Davis has been given an opportunity to play the past couple of weeks.  Last week, he received 71 out of 83 snaps, which is always a great sign when analyzing players off the waiver wire.  More importantly...

Jake Locker, Tennessee Titans - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in Deeper Leagues, All 2QB Leagues Analysis:  Locker was always considered a talented Quarterback, with running ability and a big arm, but struggled to put all the pieces together.  But that all seems to have changed this year.  In the five weeks that Locker has been healthy and active, he has put up 18.90... Read More

Shane Vereen, New England Patriots – Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Stash in All Leagues Analysis:  Vereen was able to practice today, for the first time since injuring his wrist in week 1.  I’m sure Tom Brady, Belichick, and every Patriots fan is ecstatic to hear this.  Vereen was a huge fantasy football sleeper coming into the 2013 season, and exceeded expectations in week 1 before going... Read More

Daryl Richardson, St. Louis Rams - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis:  Anyone who watched last week’s game against Seattle, saw that Zac Stacy is an impressive young running back for the Rams.  But towards the end of the game, Stacy had to exit with an ankle sprain.  The good news is he avoided a high-ankle sprain, which could take several weeks to recover... Read More

Shonn Greene, Tennessee Titans - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in Deeper Leagues Immediately Analysis:  Greene may seem like an odd person to see here on the waiver wire sleepers list, as he hasn’t really done much for fantasy football owners in 2013.  But that may all be changing soon.  Coach Munchak announced today that he plans to give Greene “15 carries...

Ben Tate, Houston Texans – Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Immediately Analysis:  For the past few years, Tate has been widely regarded as one of the top running back handcuffs in all of fantasy football.  This year he came in with even more sleeper appeal, as Arian Foster started the season off with some injuries.  But this Houston running back situation...

Waiver Wire Sleepers for Week 9

Below, I will highlight some fantasy football waiver wire sleepers for Week 9 of the NFL season.  In most fantasy football leagues, waivers run on Tuesday nights.  But there's still plenty of time to make waiver wire pickups, and as injury reports get released throughout the week new players should be targeted off your fantasy football...

Donald Brown, Indianapolis Colts

Baller Move:  Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis:  With the Colts coming out of their bye in week 9, the running back situation is an interesting one that should be monitored.  Trent Richardson has been rather ineffective for Indianapolis, and hasn’t been running well over the past few weeks.  Brown on the other hand has been given... Read More

Brandon Bolden, New England Patriots

Baller Move:  Add in Deep PPR Leagues Analysis: The Patriots continue to utilize Bolden as an important running back in their offense, leaning on him in hurry-up situations and third-downs. Bolden’s strength is his hands, and the ability to catch passes out of the backfield.  And the Patriots have been using a lot of formations recently... Read More

Daniel Thomas, Miami Dolphins

Baller Move: Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis: Miami came out of their week six bye, and somewhat surprisingly decided that Thomas was going to be an important part of their weekly game plan going forward.  Many thought that Lamar Millerwould emerge as the clear-cut running back for the Dolphins, after the coaches made their bye week assessments.  But... Read More

Mike Tolbert, Carolina Panthers

Baller Move:  Add in Deep Leagues Analysis:  Tolbert is going to get some love again in week nine’s waiver wire, as he just keeps producing as the third-down running back for the Panthers.  In PPR leagues, Tolbert put up a solid 16.40 points last week.  He also racked up 9.60 points in week 7 and... Read More

6 years ago

Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Immediately Analysis:  As the season progresses, Ellington’s running back role continues to grow within the Arizona offense.  Rashard Mendenhall continues to slip into fantasy football irrelevance, as he continues to be ineffective.  Ellington on the other hand is a young, fast, shifty, dynamic running back who can make plays.  On...

Week 9 Waiver Wire Running Backs (RB) – Deep Leagues

In this space we will highlight some NFL running backs that need to be considered on the week 9 waiver wire for deeper leagues, or running backs that are still just being overlooked in fantasy leagues.  For those who play in 12-14 team leagues (or more), have deep benches, or are really hurting at running back –...

Donald Brown (RB, IND) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis:  Ever since the Colts traded for Trent Richardson, everyone has been waiting for him to play to his potential and break out in a high-scoring offense.  Needless to say, that hasn’t happened yet.  Richardson has been decent, but still hasn’t mastered the Indianapolis playbook– and he can’t seem to find... Read More

Brandon Bolden (RB, NE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis:  Brandon Bolden had another decent game this week for the Patriots, as Bill Belichick continued to use him throughout the game.  Even with Stevan Ridley back and running well, Bolden received plenty of work early, especially when the Patriots were in the hurry-up offense.  He continues to act as the third-down back... Read More

Mike Tolbert (RB, CAR) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis:  After a slow start to the 2013 NFL season, Mike Tolbert has been picking it up over the past couple of weeks.  In Week Six, Tolbert put up 18.70 points in fantasy leagues (PPR), getting involved in both the running game and the passing game and putting up two touchdowns.  This... Read More

Michael Cox (RB, NYG) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move: Stash in Deep Leagues Analysis: Michael Cox is starting for the Giants on Monday Night Football, and should be rostered in deep leagues.  If your league settings still allow MNF players to be picked up and you have a bench player you can let go of, it may not be a bad idea to make the... Read More

6 years ago

Chris Ivory (RB, NYJ) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Add in Deep Leagues Analysis:  Everyone was excited about Chris Ivory signing with the Jets, since on paper he was the most talented running back on the roster coming into the season, and the Jets offense is always leaning on their running backs.  His injuries held him back through the first few weeks, and Bilal Powell was... Read More

Zac Stacy (RB, STL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Analysis: The fact that Zac Stacy is only 49% owned in Yahoo leagues is just craziness.  We already covered him in our Week Seven article, but it’s criminal that he’s still so underowned.  Stacy has emerged as the primary running back for the St. Louis Rams, and has clearly separated himself from... Read More

Week 8 Waiver Wire Running Backs (RB) – Deep Leagues

In this space we will highlight some NFL running backs that need to be considered on the week 8 waiver wire for deeper leagues, or running backs that are still just being overlooked in fantasy leagues.  For those who play in 12-14 team leagues (or more), have deep benches, or are really hurting at running back –... Read More

Shane Vereen (RB, NE) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Stash in All Deep Leagues Analysis:  Vereen still has a cast on, as he continues his recovery from a broken wrist, but he may be back by week 12.  Vereen has only played in one game this year, but it was quite a game.  After a lot of pre-season hype, Vereen didn’t disappoint... Read More

Brandon Bolden (RB, NE) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Stash in Deeper Leagues Analysis:  When looking for deep league running backs to add to your fantasy football team, it’s always a good idea to scout the third-down backs, especially if you’re in a PPR league.  The Patriots don’t have a dominant offense this year, and are looking for production from just about... Read More

6 years ago

Roy Helu, Jr. (RB, WAS) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in Deeper Leagues Analysis:  Helu is currently only owned in 18% of Yahoo leagues, which makes some sense as he’s not the lead running back for the Redskins.  But he is still getting some playing time behind Alfred Morris, and is taking advantage of his limited opportunities.  Helu is also the third-down back... Read More

6 years ago

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, ATL) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move:  Add in All PPR Leagues Analysis:  While Rodgers may not be the best long term solution for you at running back, he may be a solid week 7 option.  Steven Jackson has been sidelined with an injury since week 2, and it looks like he still won’t be ready for week 7 action even...
