Week 17 Defense (DEF) Streamers and Starts: 2017 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

Welcome to Week 8 everyone. Somehow, we're halfway through the 2017 fantasy season. Can you believe it? With a whopping six teams on bye this week -- Packers, Titans, Rams, Giants, Cardinals and Jaguars -- there is more reason than ever to be active on the waiver wire. There will probably be someone that can... Read More

As the season wears on, this list will feature more name brand players that you may have trouble letting go. Peyton Manning owners remember all too well how a big name can derail an entire season if you refuse to accept that he simply no longer has value. The names on this list no longer... Read More

In today’s installment, I want to give you a peek behind the curtain as to my motivation for writing this article each week, but I’ll start with a mea culpa on the Green Bay Packers passing game. My gut call on the Packers pass-catchers was that they were more likely to surprise in a positive... Read More

Week 7 was a rather ugly slate overall, though folks who didn’t bail on Ezekiel Elliott were handsomely rewarded (as were all Dallas-player stocks) and many might feel that “no news is good news” after we’ve seen several top players go down these past few weeks. That said, Carson Palmer will miss at least eight... Read More

In trying to bring you, the esteemed RotoBaller, the most timely information, consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 8. This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions. Waiver pickups... Read More

The waiver wire gets thinner each week, as you will soon find out. There are some retreads here that have been added and dropped twice over, but still could prove valuable as we enter the middle portion of the fantasy regular season. With a staggering six teams on bye in Week 8, the best you... Read More

We're on to Week 8 and that means just six weeks left for most of you before the fantasy playoffs. Whether you're fighting for your playoff lives, or comfortably in and trying to bolster your roster, we've got you covered. There wasn't a lot of change in the wide receiver landscape in Week 7, but... Read More

While there were plenty of movers and shakers on the fantasy scene, the tight end position didn't see as much volatility. Injuries have been the biggest story in the tight end world, but the tight ends remained healthy, at least during this past week. So here we are, feverishly looking to analyze statistics and projections to... Read More

Hey there RotoBallers! With Week 7 almost in the books, it's already time to turn an eye toward the waiver wire in Week 8. As always, this column will aim to highlight Week 8 waiver wire adds and streamers for quarterbacks, players that you should consider targeting on your league's waiver wire. In the past few seasons, streaming the... Read More

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

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

Below are RotoBaller's Week 7 defense tiers and rankings, or which defenses to stream and start for Week 7 of the NFL and fantasy football season. Our tiered defense rankings are your guide to drafting defenses, making waiver wire pickups/adds to improve your lineups, and to decide which defenses to start, sit, target, avoid or stream for Week...

It's Wednesday morning. You dropped a player last night expecting to make some moves on the waiver wire, only to wake up and find out you weren't able to get anyone you put a claim in for. What now? If you've got an open roster spot, its always a good idea to plan ahead for... Read More

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

You need to grab David Njoku now. You should have grabbed him last week, because his breakout potential for week 6 was high. 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

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. The same holds true for fantasy football, we've seen plenty of news columns hyping a certain player, only to be left hugely... Read More

It's Week 7 RotoBallers and we're obsessing over kickers again! Yes, that’s right – kickers. After all, points are points, and even though kickers are very difficult to predict for fantasy points week to week, having the right one in your Week 7 lineup could be a difference maker. We're here to give you that life changing... Read More

In efforts of bringing you, the RotoBaller aficionado, timely information as quickly as possible, consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 7. This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions.... Read More

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

Welcome to Week 7 everyone. With two more teams on bye (Lions, Texans) as we approach the midway point of the 2017 season, there are still players that can make a difference for your fantasy squads down the stretch as you attempt to make a playoff run. Below are my recommended FAAB waiver wire bids... Read More

It's already Week 7 of the NFL and fantasy season, time flies doesn't it? While Week 6 didn't open up many new opportunities for wide receivers, there are still plenty available on wires who can help teams in need going forward. Only two teams on bye this week but some big-time receivers like DeAndre Hopkins,... Read More

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. While I certainly can't claim knowing he would look that good in Arizona, he was the top mention in last week's article and was by far more valuable as a... Read More

While there were plenty of movers and shakers on the fantasy scene, the tight end position didn't see as much volatility. Injuries have been the biggest story in the tight end world, but the tight ends remained healthy, at least during this past week. So here we are, feverishly looking to analyze statistics and projections to... Read More

As always, this column will aim to highlight Week 7 waiver wire adds and streamers for quarterbacks, players that you should consider targeting on your league's waiver wire.

This list is ordinarily exclusively about the players who are popular drop considerations from week-to-week who nevertheless have enough value to hold if you have the roster flexibility. I’m going to break format ever so slightly this week to discuss a group of players who I want to caution against selling low, and that group... Read More

Plainly and simply, this will be your weekly list of those end-of-roster guys that you can safely let go of, with the occasional unfortunate star player that finds his way here due to injury. Each week from now until the end of the season, I’ll be offering my thoughts on players who don’t deserve to... Read More

Waiver Wire Rankings for Week 7

This is our priority list for running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and quarterbacks to add. Darren McFadden (48%) and Alfred Morris (54%) are sitting atop the list, just in case they are still available in your leagues. Go get 'em asap. We always receive a lot of questions of which players to add off the waiver... Read More

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... Read More

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. For the record, that's way more disappointing for real life NFL football than it is for fantasy. Seeing a superstar go down with... Read More
