ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Week 14-16 Playoff Defense (DEF) Streamers and Starts - 2019 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

The playoffs are here, and that means we're going to do things a little differently. I want to take a look at the playoffs as a whole (and in this case we are considering Weeks 14-16) and determine which DSTs you can ride all the way through and which ones you should stream this week.... Read More

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dalvin Cook came out alive of Minnesota's MNF game. Barely, though, as he had to leave the field in the third quarter with a chest injury, supposedly for precautionary reasons. Keep in mind that Dalvin Cook has yet to complete a full season...

Breshad Perriman (WR, TB) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As if we hadn’t had enough headaches with Tampa Bay’s offense and its multiple receiving options, Breshad Perriman went full-force in Week 13 and finished the day five receptions on six targets for 87 yards to help the Bucs win their game against...

Anthony Miller (WR, CHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: You might not believe me, but in the last three weeks Anthony Miller has out-targeted no. 1 Bears receiver Allen Robinson 33 to 28. Fantasy football is all about opportunities, and that is why this little fact is reason enough to trust... Read More

A.J. Brown (WR, TEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Even in a “bad” game considering what he had been up to lately, A.J. Brown still led all Titans wide receivers in receptions (three) and yards (45) this past Sunday in another win for Tennessee over the Colts. Ryan Tannehill has flipped this... Read More

2 days ago


Josh Reynolds (WR, LAR) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Brandin Cooks has been back from his concussion two weeks now, but he’s logged just six targets and caught four passes in the span for 56 yards. Those are not horrible numbers, but they are fram from Cook’s average production so one has... Read More

2 days ago

Hunter Renfrow (WR, OAK) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Consider this a stash and just an option in super deep leagues in which you have either the room to risk rostering a non-playing WR or are so needy of players that you must go all-in with risky gambles. That being said, Hunter... Read More

2 days ago

Taylor Gabriel (WR, CHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I have to start this little column by speaking of Mitchell Trubisky. I’m not a believer, but the quarterback has been putting on some work lately. He has his best game of the season in Thanksgiving to the tune of 338 yards... Read More

2 days ago

Russell Gage (WR, ATL) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I said it last week and I keep saying it now: Russell Gage can be a league-winner hidden in plain sight. Just in case you don’t know, Julio Jones was also out of Atlanta’s last game and given the status of the franchise... Read More

Mike Gesicki (TE, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It took quite some time, but it looks like Mike Gesicki has finally arrived. The second-year tight end has been targeted at least six times in his five last games and although he had a couple of duds in weeks 10 and 11... Read More

2 days ago


Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Although Dawson Knox fell a little short of a great performance in Thanksgiving, he was able to improve on his Week 12 outing and finish the day with six more yards on one more catch and four targets (his highest mark since Week... Read More

2 days ago

J.D. McKissic (RB, DET) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It looks like the Lions will ride with Bo Scarbrough as their leading rusher for the rest of the year after signing him a few weeks ago, but it is also true that J.D. McKissic profiles as the pass-catching tailback go-to guy... Read More

2 days ago

Nyheim Hines (RB, IND) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While it was reasonable to get excited about Jonathan Williams’ potential impact on the Colts offense once Marlon Mack went down injured (Williams had back-to-back 100-plus yards games of 15.7 and 21.1 fantasy points), I also suspected that couldn’t be for real...

Mitchell Trubisky (QB, CHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Had you asked me about adding Mitchell Trubisky, let alone play him, a month ago I would have probably deemed you crazy. Good for fantasy owners, though, the second-year quarterback has been able to make amends and has performed to good levels lately.... Read More

Week 14 Kicker Streamers and Starts - 2019 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

Week 14 is here, and the fantasy playoffs are upon us. Congratulations are for those of you who have made it this far. These are the weeks that matter most because, once you lose, there is no going back. Picking the right kicker to get to a championship remains a key decision. In Week 13,... Read More

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 14

It's playoff time in fantasyland, and while the playoffs generally mean fewer owners streaming quarterbacks, those that do stream will need to be even more diligent in their research. While owners shouldn't adjust their strategies too much between the regular season and playoffs, it's important to understand that even one dud can cost you your... Read More

Week 13 and Playoff Defense (DEF) Streamers and Starts - 2019 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

This is your last shot at the playoffs--don't miss out because you neglected something as important as your DST! That's only half-sarcastic. Below are RotoBaller's Week 13 defense tiers and rankings, or which defenses to stream, start and target off the waiver wire for Week 13 of the NFL and fantasy football season. In case you...

Week 13 Kicker Streamers and Starts - 2019 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

It's Week 13, and we're in the final week of the fantasy regular season for a lot of you. Some of you may even be in the playoffs already, or you're playing for the consolation trophy. Whatever the case, kickers still matter. In Week 12, we saw a quiet week from some of our kickers,... Read More

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 13

With Week 12 mostly in the books, bye weeks are finally behind us, and the need for quarterback fill-ins should taper off significantly. That means less competition on waivers for those of us who prefer to stream quarterbacks, which is great news because we've got some exciting options this week that should be easy to... Read More

Rashaad Penny (RB, SEA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny had a breakout performance in Week 12 against the Eagles, carrying the ball 14 times for 129 yards and a touchdown. It was a season-high in carries for Penny and the first time he'd topped 65 yards... Read More

1 week ago


A.J. Brown (WR, TEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Don't look now, but the Tennessee Titans are right in the thick of the AFC playoff race and rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown has been a big reason why. The team is 4-0 this year when Brown has either 90-plus receiving yards... Read More

1 week ago

Benny Snell Jr. (RB, PIT) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Benny Snell Jr. led the way for the Pittsburgh Steelers backfield in Week 12 against the Bengals. He carried the ball 21 times for 98 yards while no other running back had more than six carries in the game. Jaylen Samuels earned... Read More

1 week ago

Ryan Tannehill (QB, TEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I’m afraid we’ve seen the last pass of Marcus Mariota as a Titan. Ryan Tannehill started his fifth game this year against Jacksonville on Sunday and although he kept it quiet in terms of volume, his efficiency was massive. On just 18 attempts,... Read More

1 week ago

Nyheim Hines (RB, IND) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Nyheim Hines is quite an efficient player, but he can be a little frustrating for fantasy owners. Just this past week, against Houston, Hines had a relatively good game. You wouldn’t think so given his 61 yards from scrimmage on 11 touches,... Read More

1 week ago

Cole Beasley (WR, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I'm tired of writing about Cole Beasley. The Buffalo Bills slot receiver remains under 30 percent owned for some reason despite his strong recent play. Beasley's been a big part of Buffalo's short passing game, and his target share plus his... Read More

1 week ago


Mecole Hardman (WR, KC) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill should play in Week 13 against the Raiders, though hamstring injuries are tricky. If Hill's out, Hardman should step into a bigger role and have a chance to produce. In the first five games of the season,... Read More

1 week ago

N'Keal Harry (WR, NE) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New England Patriots rookie wide receiver N'Keal Harry scored the only touchdown in the team's 13-9 victory over the Cowboys this past week. In a game where the team was without wide receivers Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion), they needed... Read More

1 week ago

J.D. McKissic (RB, DET) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Detroit’s backfield is a mess. I’m not going to lie to you here. They have featured more running backs than anyone in the league this year due mostly to injuries, but even with that, it’s become too random to predict. The last... Read More

1 week ago

Jakobi Meyers (WR, NE) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Sure, N'Keal Harry had the only touchdown on Sunday for the Patriots, but it was another little-owned receiver who had the most interesting day. Meyers was targeted nine times against Dallas, catching four of those for 74 yards on a day where... Read More

1 week ago

Allen Hurns (WR, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It's time to talk about risk. Allen Hurns is a huge, huge risk this week, and the reward isn't sky high. A lot of people won't want to take that risk. But the Dolphins are throwing a lot, and Hurns still... Read More

1 week ago


Chris Conley (WR, JAC) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Nick Foles has now played in two games since returning from collarbone injury. He's thrown 95 passes in those two games. NINETY-FIVE. The Jaguars are playing from behind a lot, which has led to more throws now that they've got a quarterback... Read More

1 week ago

Brandon Allen (QB, DEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Brandon Allen had a day to forget this past Sunday against Buffalo. That was against the third-best defense in the league against QBs, though, which keeps the hopes at least a bit alive for the rest of the season. Allen could only complete 10... Read More

1 week ago

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While Dawson Knox had one of the worst games of his season so far in Week 12, we can’t forget about what he did in the prior two weeks to this one and the state of the tight end position. Sure, Knox finished... Read More

1 week ago

Russell Gage (WR, ATL) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I’d be ecstatic to have Russell Gage on my team going forward, and I’d be pretty excited at the chance of adding him to it through waivers at this point. Gage is only owned in 4% of the leagues but he is clearly... Read More

1 week ago

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We’re in prime handcuffing season, folks. No matter the league you play in, most of the great options will be already off the board, so you have to take advantage of everything with a minimum value that you can get for free. Enter... Read More

1 week ago


Ted Ginn Jr. (WR, NO) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Although Ted Ginn has struggled to post fantasy points this year, New Orlean’s matchups remain so good that I find it hard to not trust him exploding sooner rather than later. Truth be told, Ginn’s only superb games came all the way back... Read More

1 week ago

Taylor Gabriel (WR, CHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: A bad game against the Giants this past weekend and the return to life of Mitchell Trubisky (278 yards on 25 completions and 41 attempts) might turn Taylor Gabriel into an easy-to-acquire waiver wire target this week. Truth be told, Gabriel is... Read More

1 week ago

Hunter Renfrow (WR, OAK) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Keep in mind that Renfrow sustained an injury in his last game so there is the risk that he misses time. It's a rib-related injury, so it could come down to play under pain, but that only Renfrow knows. We all know Tyrell... Read More

1 week ago

Randall Cobb (WR, DAL) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After a year of fairly middling production, Randall Cobb has found both the end zone and the 100-yard mark for two consecutive games as the Cowboys have started committing more to their passing game. In Week 11, Cobb caught four of his... Read More

2 weeks ago

Taylor Gabriel (WR, CHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Bears are such a mess, but that didn't keep Taylor Gabriel from getting targeted 14 times against the Rams. Gabriel caught seven of those, finishing with 57 yards. The Bears promised to run the ball more, but Matt Nagy must have... Read More

2 weeks ago


Darius Slayton (WR, NYG) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The argument for Darius Slayton is pretty simple: He's got a pair of multi-touchdown games in the last three games, and he's coming off a 10-catch, 121-yard performance against the Jets. The upside is clearly there for the rookie, who is turning... Read More

2 weeks ago

James Washington (WR, PIT) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: JuJu Smith-Schuster is hurt. Diontae Johnson is hurt. Both players have their status for Week 12's meeting with the Bengals up in the air, which is a good reason to take a look at Washington. His numbers don't jump off the page... Read More

2 weeks ago

Josh Reynolds (WR, LAR) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Brandin Cooks (concussion) still out and his return date in question Josh Reynolds was already looking like a solid fantasy add. But now Robert Woods (personal issue) has missed a game and we don't know what to expect in terms of... Read More

2 weeks ago

Mike Gesicki (TE, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki had a rough game in Week 11 against the Bills. He was targeted six times in the game, which is good to see, but he managed to gain just 18 yards on the day, despite catching... Read More

2 weeks ago

Bo Scarbrough (RB, DET) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Running back Bo Scarbrough certainly made his presence felt in his Detroit Lions debut in Week 11. He led the team with 55 rushing yards and 14 attempts and scored the team's first touchdown of the game. The Lions have struggled to run... Read More

2 weeks ago


Jonathan Williams (RB, IND) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Before Sunday afternoon, Colts running back Jonathan Williams was hardly on anyone's radar. Tomorrow, he's about to be one of the most added players in fantasy. Starting running back Marlon Mack was running well, and he averaged over seven yards per carry. He... Read More

2 weeks ago

Peyton Barber (RB, TB) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber found the end zone for the second straight week in Week 11 and continues to make life difficult for all Ronald Jones II owners. Barber now has five total touchdowns on the year. The Buccaneers only... Read More

2 weeks ago

Ryan Griffin (TE, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets tight end Ryan Griffin exploded for a season-high 109 receiving yards in Week 11. He led the Jets in receiving in the game and scored his fourth touchdown of the year. Griffin caught all five of his targets in... Read More

2 weeks ago

Diontae Johnson (WR, PIT) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Diontae Johnson has been up and down all season long, but he’s showed a ceiling as high as low his floor has been. Sure, he has had four games of under-five fantasy points in 2019, but he also has another four with double-digit... Read More

2 weeks ago

Noah Fant (TE, DEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It is happening in Denver. Just two weeks ago (with a bye last weekend), Noah Fant caught three passes for 115 yards and a touchdown on four targets. This last Sunday he finished the day with a massive 11 targets of which he... Read More
