There are a lot of bad teams out there in the NFL in 2018 as you will see in the list below. Some expected, like the Raiders and some not so much, like the Jaguars. Whether bad by design, bad injury luck, or bad coaching (the Raiders fit all three), some players still stand out... Read More

Waiver Wire Express - Week 11 Lightning Round

In case anyone felt in control after a chalky Week 9, the NFL brought a swift reminder of its chaos in Week 10.

Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

Offense reigns supreme in the NFL these days. In Week 9, we saw scores of 45-35, 42-28, 37-21, and 38-14.

Waiver Wire Express - Week 10 Lightning Round

Week 9 felt a bit "chalkier" than other recent NFL slates, with many big names going off and very few lower-owned players coming on to vulture touchdowns from the big guns.
