2019 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Tony Pollard (RB, DAL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Cowboys rookie running back, Tony Pollard has been quietly very efficient in his rookie campaign.

Ito Smith (RB, ATL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: Many fantasy football owners drafted Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman with hopes of a resurgence. As the RB14 in PPR scoring leagues, Freeman has been picking things up as the season continues on. However, it’s worth noting that he’s seeing a career-worst... Read More

Deebo Samuel (WR, SF) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: The San Francisco 49ers have shocked the world this year and currently are undefeated at 5-0. The offense has definitely not been what’s making them so good this year, but their defense has been great and appears to be here to stay. The... Read More

Geronimo Allison (WR, GB) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, there was some debate on who would be the WR2 in Green Bay this year. We all know just how good Davante Adams is, and with the second wide receiver spot up for grabs, it’s between Marquez Valdes-Scantling... Read More

Rex Burkhead (RB, NEP) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of leagues ANALYSIS: The New England Patriots continue to offer frustration for fantasy football owners. Whether you own James White or Sony Michel, there’s a good chance that you never truly feel comfortable with starting them week in and week out. Rex Burkhead will continue to... Read More

Darren Fells (TE, HOU) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: For the first time in years, it's time to stop ignoring Houston Texans tight ends. Ever since the team let Owen Daniels go, they've struggled to fill the position, but in 2019 it appears they've found an unlikely contributor who can provide... Read More

Sam Darnold (QB, NYJ) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Raise your hand if you thought the New York Jets offense was an abject disaster before Sunday's win over the Cowboys. *waits* That's what I thought. With Sam Darnold (mono) out, the Jets looked so lost that even getting Darnold back felt... Read More

Darrell Henderson (RB, LAR) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson got his first real opportunity in NFL action this past week while the team's starting running back Todd Gurley (thigh) was sidelined and he performed exceptionally well. It remains to be seen whether or not... Read More

Chase Edmonds (RB, ARI) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Look, I'm not saying that the Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray combination is destined to be the next Brady/Belichick, but it's undeniable that the Cardinals offense has improved greatly this season after looking atrocious last year, and one way you can tell...

Auden Tate (WR, CIN) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate led the team in targets in Week 6 with a season-high 12. He also led the team in receptions (5) and receiving yards (91). Tate's had six-or-more targets in four straight games and has clearly established... Read More

Albert Wilson (WR, MIA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It is tough to make a case for Albert Wilson, but here I am. It is tough first because I was a true believer of Wilson’s potential entering the year--yes, I had him as one of my go-to sleepers in almost every draft--and... Read More

1 day ago

DeVante Parker (WR, MIA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I learned something this past Sunday, and it is that bad teams are bad no matter who they face. It was the case in the Washington versus Miami game from Week 6, which some reasoned would be a slugfest just because both... Read More

Benny Snell Jr. (RB, PIT) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: There is no better time to jump on Benny Snell Jr. than this week. Let’s recap: Pittsburgh is missing its starting quarterback and the backup to the starting quarterback. JuJu Smith-Schuster looks nothing like the JuJu Smith-Schuster we know. And most of...

Ted Ginn Jr. (WR, NO) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Time flies. It’s been more than 10 years since Ted Ginn Jr. was drafted in 2007 by the Dolphins and he keeps grinding. Now in his third season with the Saints, it is normal that he has fallen in the dark a bit... Read More

1 day ago

David Moore (WR, SEA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Seahawks are a run-heavy team (they’re rushing on 48.4% of their plays, fourth-most in the league) but they’re also a highly efficient squad on the passing game. So far this season they rank second in yards per attempt (9.0), completion rate (72.5%)... Read More

Darius Slayton (WR, NYG) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Giants spent a fifth-round pick on Darius Slayton this past offseason, but even with some players missing in the offense he wasn’t able to debut in the NFL until Week 3 as he got injured in July. Don’t get too high on... Read More

1 day ago

Tyler Higbee (TE, LAR) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tyler Higbee is the most-established tight end in Los Angeles. This is his fourth season with the team and he has played every game to date with the Rams. Although his usage has never been mindblowing (he had a career-high 45 targets back... Read More

Keke Coutee (WR, HOU) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After injuring his hamstring, Kenny Stills has already missed two games and Keke Coutee has been the main beneficiary of it, slotting as the no. 3 wide receiver of the Texans attack. Back in Week 5 (the first game Stills missed), Coutee was targeted... Read More

1 day ago

Dante Pettis (WR, SF) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dante Pettis wasn’t bad in 2018, but he wasn’t so good as to merit all the hype and praise he got this past preseason. Everybody was high on Pettis becoming the leading receiver of the 49ers (other than George Kittle), but then the... Read More

2 days ago

Joe Flacco (QB, DEN) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Nobody cares about Joe Flacco because Joe Flacco is one of the blandest players in the league, but in fantasy football, some storylines and playing trends don’t have a lot of importance. Actually, after moving from Baltimore to Denver, Joe Flacco has been his... Read More

A.J. Brown (WR, TEN) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It's been a bit of a rollercoaster season so far for Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown. He started the year off with a bang, tallying exactly 100 receiving yards in his NFL debut. Since then, he's mostly been quiet apart... Read More

Boston Scott (RB, PHI) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott saw his first action with the team this past week, carrying the ball four times for 30 yards. While the team's No. 1 back Jordan Howard led the way with 13 carries, Scott had one more... Read More

Preston Williams (WR, MIA) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Preston Williams is exactly the type of player I love the make a living off during the season. No one wants to have a single share of the Dolphins offense, which is reasonable. Devante Parker, who isn't that bad, is the most-owned player... Read More

6 days ago

Sam Darnold (QB, NYJ) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Sam Darnold is finally back--or so he should be. Everything pointed to a Week 5 return, but Darnold himself and the Jets staff both deemed it too risky to push the sophomore to make an appearance this early. But Week 6 will see... Read More

6 days ago

Chase Edmonds (RB, ARI) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of leagues ANALYSIS: Chase Edmonds is in his second season in the NFL as the backup to David Johnson. While it's tough to get much volume behind someone as talented as Johnson, it's worth noting that Edmonds has been quite efficient with the ball in his... Read More

6 days ago


Auden Tate (WR, CIN) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Bengals are 0-5, Andy Dalton is a complete boom-or-bust quarterback yet here we are, trying to get Auden Tate (who most people probably didn't even know until three weeks ago) to save our fantasy teams and help us recover from our... Read More

Geronimo Allison (WR, GB) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison had a disappointing showing in Week 5, catching just two passes for 28 yards. However, on the bright side, he did lead all Packers wide receivers in targets with six, two more than Marquez Valdes-Scantling.... Read More

1 week ago

Byron Pringle (WR, KC) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Tyreek Hill still out and Sammy Watkins now dealing with a hamstring injury, the WR1 job in Kansas City is temporarily up in the air. Based on Sunday's game, rookie Byron Pringle could be in line for an expanded role moving... Read More

1 week ago

Gardner Minshew (QB, JAC) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We've now reached the point of the season where the sample size on Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew is big enough to justify him being a roster option in single quarterback fantasy leagues. Minshew had his best game as a passer... Read More

1 week ago

Diontae Johnson (WR, PIT) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson has earned at least six targets in three straight games and led the team with eight targets in Week 5 against the Ravens.

1 week ago


Keke Coutee (WR, HOU) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: When Kenny Stills fell injured in Week 4, Keke Coutee had an opportunity to step up. Coutee could only catch one of three targets for 11 yards but he also added 10 more on the ground in a losing effort. After that,... Read More

1 week ago

Demaryius Thomas (WR, NYJ) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets -- yes, that's right, New York Jets -- wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has had a roller coaster couple of years. He started 2018 on the only team he's never known, the Denver Broncos. Then he was traded to Houston,... Read More

1 week ago

Gerald Everett (TE, LAR) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The tight end position has been a hot mess so far this year. Judging only by the first quarter of the season, there were five tight ends to score at least 50 fantasy points in that span in 2018, while we have... Read More

1 week ago

Tony Pollard (RB, DAL) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of leagues ANALYSIS: After another exciting week in the NFL, it's time to look at the waiver wire for some players we can pick up. We all know just how valuable a handcuff can be in fantasy football, and Tony Pollard is one of the top... Read More

D.K. Metcalf (WR, SEA) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 57% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We now are starting to get into the true meat of the byes, as there are at least four teams off in six of the nest seven weeks. So you have to aggressively pursue quality depth. D.K. Metcalf has already emerged as a... Read More

1 week ago


Marcus Mariota (QB, TEN) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Just when it felt like Marcus Mariota had put everything together, Buffalo came and ate him alive. Mariota's 21.5 PPR fantasy points per game ranked 12th, sandwiched between old-foe Jameis Winston and GOAT Tom Brady. You know what Mariota did against the... Read More

1 week ago

Paul Richardson (WR, WAS) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: There is nothing unknown hidden in Paul Richardson's game. He is a 27-year-old veteran, this is his second season in Washington, and he has lost ample time to injury in the past. His best days are a couple of years away from... Read More

1 week ago

Antonio Callaway (WR, CLE) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: Before this week's Monday Night Football matchup gets underway, there is one name that fantasy football owners should remember from last year, and that's the second-year wide receiver in Cleveland, Antonio Callaway. Callaway had a decent rookie campaign posting a stat line of... Read More

1 week ago

Teddy Bridgewater (QB, NO) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I must admit I am surprised by Teddy Bridgewater. I thought Bridgewater would play the role of the average backup and rely on his tailback and just throw short, safe passes. Indeed, that was the case in Weeks 2 and 3. Alvin... Read More

Ted Ginn (WR, NO) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New Orleans Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn caught his first touchdown of the year in Week 5, a 33-yard score that provided the bulk of his statline for the game, which was two catches for 35 yards and a touchdown.

Ito Smith (RB, ATL) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Atlanta Falcons have two things going for them that every fantasy owner should love: they have an elite offense and a horrendous defense. As a result, you can expect a lot of fantasy points to be scored from the Falcons' skill... Read More

Deebo Samuel (WR, SF) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, one of my favorite wide receivers to target late was rookie Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers. Between his skillset and his opportunity in this offense, it was hard to ignore the upside that he offered both... Read More

1 week ago

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of leagues ANALYSIS: We all know just how valuable handcuffs can be in fantasy football. Getting that one running back off the waiver wire late in the season after the lead running back goes down can really end up being a game-changer. One of the most... Read More

Dante Pettis (WR, SF) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, one of the more popular breakout candidates was the San Francisco 49ers Dante Pettis. After a strong showing towards the end of the 2018 season, we've seen nothing but disappointment from Pettis this year. He is currently the... Read More

1 week ago

Josh Rosen (QB, MIA) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: A thing that I'm always hesitant to admit is that I'm still a Josh Rosen believer. His NFL career's gotten off to a rough start, but I still think there's something there. The Dolphins made the right call replacing Ryan Fitzpatrick with Rosen... Read More

1 week ago


Geronimo Allison (WR, GB) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With no offseason additions at wide receiver and Randall Cobb out of town, the slot position was left open for Geronimo Allison to fill from day one. Indeed, only Davante Adams has been aligned more times at the slot than Allison, though Adams... Read More

Nyheim Hines (RB, IND) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines had his best game of the young season in Week 4, catching all six of his targets for 39 yards.

A.J. Brown (WR, TEN) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Slowly but surely A.J. Brown is becoming a true offensive weapon for Marcus Mariota in Tennessee. Yes, Tennessee. Not the best attack of the league, without the best play-caller in the NFL, but still good enough for Brown to out-perform his expectations. After... Read More

2 weeks ago

Mohamed Sanu (WR, ATL) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Everybody likes a good, interesting, new, sexy player on draft day.

Jacoby Brissett (QB, IND) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of leagues ANALYSIS: Jacoby Brissett hasn't really stood out through four weeks, but he's been admirable as a QB2, especially the last two weeks. In games against Atlanta and Oakland, the 26-year-old has gone 52-for-83 for 575 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. He has a... Read More
