Tight Ends Waiver Wire - Week 8 Pickups and Adds

While there were plenty of movers and shakers on the fantasy scene, the tight end position didn't see as much volatility.

Deeper Sleepers for Standard Leagues (Week 8)

If you read this list last week and thought Justin, how dare you suggest I pick Josh McCown up. I will never read you again, then...well, in that scenario you likely aren't actually reading this. But McCown was fifth among QBs in scoring for the week going into Monday night and he gets Atlanta in Week... Read More

Deeper PPR Sleepers Heading Into Week 8

We have somehow managed to escape Week 7 without any significant injuries to top fantasy contributors. Yes, Carson Palmer and Jay Cutler were knocked out, but speaking purely from a fantasy perspective, this was as tame of a week as we could hope for. With that in mind, you'll notice some more repeat names than usual this week.... Read More

Going Extreme with All Bench RB in Week 7

Zero RB is a widely discussed strategy that I happen to buy into.  I love the WR position and don’t enjoy the injury risk at RB, therefore avoiding the use of my high draft capital on the position. Today I’d like to discuss a strategy that compliments Zero RB very well but can also apply... Read More

N-JO-KU NOW! - Why You Should Add David Njoku This Week

Fortunately for you, he did not deliver and is still available in nearly 90% of Yahoo leagues. Here is your opportunity to pick up a player a week or two early and... Read More

Fake News Or Real Deal? Week 7 Waiver Outlooks

We've seen a lot of fake news throughout the years. From "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq to an Ohio postal worker destroying absentee ballots cast for Donald Trump, the news is littered.

Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

Even in today’s NFL, quarterbacks get hit to the ground rather often -- and usually, they bounce right back up. Aaron Rodgers did not bounce right back up, and could now miss the rest of the 2017 season with a broken collarbone. The bright side of losing a QB is that streaming that position tends... Read More

Wide Receivers Waiver Wire - Week 7 Pickups and Adds

It's already Week 7 of the NFL and fantasy season, time flies doesn't it?

Only two teams on bye this week but some big-time receivers like DeAndre Hopkins,... Read More

Running Backs Waiver Wire - Week 7 Pickups and Adds

If you're back here looking for more options off the waiver wire at RB, chances are you didn't bother to pickup Adrian Peterson last week.

Deeper Sleepers for Standard Leagues (Week 7)

Last week I mentioned Brian Hoyer as a good streaming option, which quickly looked like a bad call when Hoyer was benched for C.J. Beathard. But hey--the 49ers offense looks surprisingly not terrible, so maybe I just had the wrong quarterback penciled in! But seriously, I don't know what to think about San Francisco--every week...

Deeper PPR Sleepers Heading Into Week 7

Although it doesn't quite factor into a column about PPR sleepers, we should take a moment to acknowledge the injury to Aaron Rodgers. A broken collarbone is likely to end his season.
