Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups & Adds

Running Back Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7

Some of you have been rewarded for your meticulous roster planning by receiving excellent production from your running backs. Unfortunately, many of you have been equally prepared when making roster decisions, but have been undermined by injuries, inconsistent usage, or underwhelming performances. If that applies to you, then those unwanted outcomes have forced you to... Read More

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7

We weren't really surprised by the top-scoring fantasy wide receivers from Week 6. Out of the top-20 receivers, only Jamison Crowder, Auden Tate and Jaron Brown were less than 50% owned. Jaron Brown (0% owned) was only targeted five times but he scored two touchdowns off of those five targets. Auden Tate (23% owned) hauled... Read More

Tight End Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers – Week 7

Another week, another four teams on bye in the NFL. Fantasy football players are going to have to make due this week without Carolina’s Greg Olsen, Tampa Bay’s O.J. Howard and Pittsburgh’s Vance McDonald, not to mention Seattle’s Will Dissly, who was injured this past Sunday. It could be a worse week for fantasy players... Read More

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 7

It was another big week at the quarterback position, as five quarterbacks topped 30 points and 12 scored more than 20 heading into Sunday Night Football. Most of the big performers were players we expect, such as Matt Ryan and Deshaun Watson, but we also got some surprising starts from quarterbacks who are widely available.... Read More

Waiver Wire Express - Week 7 Lightning Round

The Jets are back! OK, maybe not back because they were never here but at least there's some actual hope and fantasy value to be had from a previously winless team. The tight end landscape has changed drastically again, as Hunter Henry returns right at 60% ownership, while breakout second-year Seahawk Will Dissly's season appears... Read More

Week 6 Stream Team - Free Agent and Bye-Week Streamers

Now that bye weeks are in full swing; streaming becomes a more viable and almost necessary strategy. Knowing who to add and when to start them could be the ultimate difference-maker in a weekly matchup. Making the right streaming decisions throughout the season could easily be the difference in winning a championship. Each week, I... Read More

Extracting Fantasy Value from Winless Teams

It's typically a good rule of thumb to invest in good offenses when playing fantasy football. After all, good offenses score points and points are kind of what makes this whole fantasy football train roll down the tracks. But that doesn't mean all bad offenses deserve to be quarantined from fantasy owners' rosters. Let's take... Read More

Deeper League Free Agent Pickups for Week 6

Bye weeks are now in full effect with the Colts, Raiders, Bills, and Bears all enjoying some rest and relaxation. So this week you may need to pillage the waiver wire in order to fill your starting lineup. Hopefully, you've been paying attention to this article in previous weeks and have been picking some of...

Stash Running Backs the Right Way

For those who don't know, I am the #AllBenchRB guy and I will reiterate what that means if you didn't peep my primer last year. I believe that your bench should be filled with RBs. RBs are the most injury prone and RB depth charts the most variable providing you with the greatest opportunity to... Read More

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 6

This is Christian McCaffrey's fantasy world and we're all just living in it. At this point, it's just that simple, as it doesn't seem to matter who he's playing with or against. Run CMC is running and catching whatever and whenever he wants. If you played against him in Week 5 (*cough-cough*), you probably got... Read More

FAAB Bidding - Week 6 Waiver Wire Targets

Assisting our famous waiver wire pickups list, and our weekly waiver wire columns by position, this column focuses on suggested waiver wire bidding percentages for fantasy football owners in leagues using a Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB). As a caveat, these prices do not by any means indicate how much these free agent players will... Read More

Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups & Adds

If you thought the waiver wire was getting barer every passing week, you would be correct. These days, a half-decent running back can't gain more than two yards without getting snatched up by desperate fantasy owners. The wide receiver position is more promising, however. While there aren't many surprises at QB or TE, the first... Read More

Running Back Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 6

Some of you have been rewarded for your meticulous roster planning by receiving excellent production from your running backs. Unfortunately, many of you have been equally prepared when making your roster decisions, but have been undermined when your players encountered injuries, operated with inconsistent patterns of usage, or delivered discouraging performances. If that applies to... Read More

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 6

Time flies in the NFL. It seems like the season just started, but now five weeks of football action are behind us. Sunday was a day headlined by some of the league's heavy hitters. The top 11 scoring wide receivers from Thursday and the Sunday noon slate were 70 percent owned or better, so this... Read More

Tight End Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers – Week 6

If you have Oakland’s Darren Waller as the top tight end on your fantasy football team, then you are going to need a replacement this week. This is the first four-team bye week of the season, so not only will fantasy owners be without Waller, they will also have to go in other directions if... Read More

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 6

It was a monster week for Quarterbacks, as six QBs topped 30 points and 14 topped 19 points (in six-point passing TD leagues) heading into Sunday Night Football. Some of the high-scorers were the usual suspects, such as Deshaun Watson, Matt Ryan, and Tom Brady, but we also saw huge weeks from the backups, as... Read More

Waiver Wire Express - Week 6 Lightning Round

Fleaflicker's Most Added and Dropped: Week 5

Before we get into the waiver wire analysis, I want to state that the Patriots have put together a football dynasty like none we've ever seen. However, I think we should all agree that a 16-game season is a whole lot less taxing when six of them every year are against the Dolphins, Bills, and... Read More

Unpacking the Fantasy Value in Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers were hit hard by injuries in their Week 4 loss to the Eagles. First, the team’s No. 2 running back Jamaal Williams was taken off the field on a stretcher after a vicious late hit at the beginning of the game. Then, the team’s No. 1 receiver Davante Adams left the... Read More

Deeper League Free Agent Pickups for Week 5

The deeper into the season we get, the harder it's going to be to find worthwhile waiver wire pickups. Rarely are the hot-ticket players going to be staring you in the face.

Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups & Adds

There were plenty of fireworks on Sunday, with eight teams scoring 30 or more points. The vultures also came out to roost, assuming that's what vultures do. In other words, several unknown players came onto the field simply to steal a touchdown away from a fantasy stud and frustrate fantasy owners. We won't list those... Read More

Running Back Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 5

Some of you have been receiving outstanding results from the running backs that you selected during your draft process.

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 5

Let's talk about wide receivers! This week's waiver wire list has some strong names on it. This has been a really deep year for wide receivers, and Week 4 was no exception when it came to lightly-owned players putting up strong numbers. There was A.J. Brown getting two touchdowns. There was another strong Mohamed Sanu... Read More

Tight End Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 5

There will not be a stampede of fantasy players searching for tight ends this week. The Week 5 bye teams will not really kill any fantasy owners at the tight end position, as Detroit’s injured / inconsistent rookie T.J. Hockenson and Miami’s underwhelming Mike Gesicki are the two starting tight ends off. That does not... Read More

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 5

The year of the backup continued in Week 4, with Mitch Trubisky going down early against Minnesota and Case Keenum taking a well-deserved benching in Washington. These moves along with the already existing injuries to major quarterbacks means many owners will be looking for short-term and long-term options this week. We've got Detroit and Miami... Read More

Waiver Wire Express - Week 5 Lightning Round

A quarter of the fantasy football season is over. That means no more waiting around to make important decisions about the state of your roster.

Week 3 was an exciting one, with big injuries, big comebacks, and big debuts. Also, another blowout loss by the Miami Dolphins as they continue the unprecedented Great Tanking of 2019.
