ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Rex Burkhead (RB, NE) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: We've all heard about how frustrating the New England Patriots' backfield can be for fantasy football purposes. Sometimes this backfield can be impossible to predict, so we just have to sit back and see who Bill Belichick wants to feed the ball... Read More

Gardner Minshew (QB, JAX) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Jacksonville Jaguars suffered a major loss in Week 1 as Nick Foles broke his collarbone. He started off hot, as he completed five of eight passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. Gardner Minshew came in and threw for 275 yards, two... Read More

Justice Hill (RB, BAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, one of my favorite rookie running backs outside of the “big three” was and still is, Justice Hill. He is quick and elusive. He’s got great hands and possesses that home run type of ability where he’s... Read More

Gus Edwards (RB, BAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of leagues ANALYSIS: If you recall back to the 2018 season, there was a brief period towards the end of the year where Gus Edwards was very useful for fantasy purposes. In Week 11, he was named the starter and put up 115 yards and... Read More

3 days ago

KeeSean Johnson (WR, ARI) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Arizona Cardinals have been one of the most talked-about teams during this past off-season. That talk can be chalked up to the young quarterback out of Oklahoma, Kyler Murray. We all know about David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald and their roles... Read More

3 days ago


Bennie Fowler (WR, NYG) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The New York Giants might have one of the most depleted groups of receivers in the NFL right now. Sterling Shepard missed time with a concussion in Week 2 and is looking like he'll be inactive again in Week 3 on the... Read More

3 days ago

Chris Conley (WR, JAX) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Jacksonville Jaguars suffered a big loss to their offense in Week 1 after Nick Foles broke his collarbone. Fortunately enough, Gardner Minshew has stepped in and appears to be serviceable. Heading into the 2019 season, the WR1 for the Jaguars was... Read More

3 days ago

Mason Rudolph (QB, PIT) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in two-QB leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: In a crushing blow for the Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger will undergo surgery on his right elbow and miss the rest of the season. Mason Rudolph, the team's third-round pick in 2018, made his NFL debut in Big Ben's absence in Week 2 against... Read More

5 days ago

Teddy Bridgewater (QB, NO) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 0% of leagues ANALYSIS: In the early days of 2019, no position has gone from "yeah, it's really deep" to "umm" faster than quarterback. Andrew Luck retired. Nick Foles broke his collarbone. Ben Roethlisberger's season is over. And in New Orleans, Drew Brees went down with... Read More

5 days ago

Jason Witten (TE, DAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm sure that a lot of people viewed Jason Witten's return to the Cowboys less as an indication that he was still a productive football player and more as an indictment on his failed broadcasting career, but in Week 2 we got... Read More

5 days ago


A.J. Brown (WR, TEN) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We'll start off right away with the disclaimer: The Titans have a slow-paced, run-first offense led by an inaccurate and injury-prone quarterback in Marcus Mariota. Rookie A.J. Brown, a second-round pick this spring, caught three passes for 100 yards in his NFL... Read More

5 days ago

Randall Cobb (WR, DAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-team PPR leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: It's the first time in his career that Randall Cobb isn't in a Packers uniform. However, his new offense might be just as good of a situation for the converted college quarterback. Through two games, Cobb has been his same old efficient self,... Read More

5 days ago

Jeffery Wilson (RB, SF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 0% of leagues ANALYSIS: In a move that went unnoticed by a lot of fantasy owners late last week, the 49ers added Jeffery Wilson from the practice squad to the active roster with Tevin Coleman (ankle) expected to miss several weeks. San Francisco immediately used a... Read More

5 days ago

Preston Williams (WR, MIA) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team PPR leagues OWNED IN: 2% owned ANALYSIS:Most people will scoff or just outright bust a gut laughing at the simple mention of picking up any Miami Dolphin right now. But this undrafted free agent might actually turn out to be their best pass-catcher. With the team constantly playing from behind,... Read More

5 days ago

James Washington (WR, PIT) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14 team leagues OWNED IN: 29% of leagues ANALYSIS: James Washington just became one of the highest priority waiver wire adds with the news that Ben Roethlisberger's (elbow) season is over. His new quarterback Mason Rudolph is an old friend from Oklahoma State and the two have already shown off their well-established... Read More

5 days ago


D.J. Chark (WR, JAC) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: The 22-year-old product from LSU didn't do much with Blake Bortles at quarterback in his rookie season, catching only 14 passes for 174 yards and no touchdowns in 11 games. Through two games in 2019, though, D.J. Chark is just three catches... Read More

5 days ago

Nelson Agholor (WR, PHI) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Nelson Agholor's value on the waiver wire depends entirely on the injury outlook of the rest of Philadelphia's receivers. Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) were both hurt, playing a combined 17 snaps before exiting the ball game. With them out,... Read More

5 days ago

Demarcus Robinson (WR, KC) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson had himself a game in Week 2, catching all six of his targets for 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Raiders Defense just seemed unable to contain Patrick Mahomes' deep ball, and that... Read More

5 days ago

JJ Arcega-Whiteside (WR, PHI) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: JJ Arcega-Whiteside was a popular name during training camp and the preseason, impressing coaches with his work ethic and production. But when the regular season began he became a forgotten name behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor. Then Sunday night... Read More

5 days ago

Vernon Davis (TE, WAS) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If you're reading this profile, chances are you passed on every highly-priced tight end on draft day, opting for a cheap option in a late round to just stream the position all season long or at least until finding someone valuable to pick... Read More

5 days ago


Raheem Mostert (RB, SF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: With Tevin Coleman (ankle) out, the 49ers turned to a committee approach to the running back position in Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Raheem Mostert ended up leading the team in rushing attempts, carrying the ball 13 times for 83 yards... Read More

5 days ago

Deebo Samuel (WR, SF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I might be wrong but I consider myself one of the very few believers in this 49ers team. Most projections put San Francisco under the Rams and Seahawks in the NFC West and didn't give the 49ers more than seven wins all season... Read More

5 days ago

Mecole Hardman (WR, KC) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Back in Week 1, when Tyreek Hill left the game injured, we all looked at the Chiefs' depth chart looking for answers to fill the hole that his absence would open in the offense. It wasn't hard to pencil the No. 1 contender... Read More

6 days ago

Frank Gore (RB, BUF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Do you know the first time Frank Gore ran for a touchdown in the NFL? Back in 2005. You do know the last time he did so? Just this weekend against the Giants. New Yorkers would be happier if that was all Gore... Read More

6 days ago

Danny Amendola (WR, DET) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team PPR leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: Week 2 was certainly a letdown after Week 1's emergence, but Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola still presents some value in PPR leagues going forward. In Week 1, Amendola led the Lions in both targets (13) and receptions (7) while compiling... Read More

6 days ago


Jamaal Williams (RB, GB) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 7% of leagues ANALYSIS: Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams was heavily involved in the offense in Week 2, touching the ball a total of 12 times. He only gained 41 total yards on those 12 touches (nine rushes, three receptions) but managed to find the... Read More

6 days ago

Cole Beasley (WR, BUF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: There aren't many players in the NFL as solid as veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley. He might not be as sexy as other options out there, but if Beasley does something, it's producing on a weekly basis. Yes, he finished 2018 as the WR53,... Read More

6 days ago

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team PPR leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Cincinnati Bengals run game has struggled mightily out of the gate and No. 2 running back Giovani Bernard has been just about as ineffective as starter Joe Mixon, but Bernard could have a good chance at receiving more of a workload... Read More

6 days ago

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I refused to believe what happened in Minnesota during their Week 1 game against the Falcons. The Vikings won their season-opener 28-12 with a shocking 10-38 pass-run split on offense. Those numbers belong to the 1970s, not the current football era. Indeed, Week... Read More

6 days ago

Marquise Goodwin (WR, SF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: The San Francisco 49ers offense came alive in a big way in Week 2, totaling 313 passing yards and 259 rushing yards in the team's 41-17 win over the Bengals. One of the biggest contributors to the offensive breakout was wide receiver Marquise... Read More

6 days ago


Danny Amendola (WR, DET) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team PPR leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Believe it or not, Danny Amendola was tied for third in the NFL among receivers in Week 1 with 13 targets. Matthew Stafford looked his way early and often, and Amendola came down with seven catches for 104 yards and a touchdown... Read More

2 weeks ago

Chris Thompson (RB, WAS) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: A knee injury is going to cost Derrius Guice some time, and while that injury was thankfully to the non-ACL tear knee, Washington is still likely going to be cautious with the second-year back. Behind him on the depth chart, Washington... Read More

2 weeks ago

D.J. Chark (WR, JAC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As a rookie, Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark had 14 catches for 174 yards and no touchdowns. Sunday against the Chiefs, he ended up with four catches for 146 yards and a score. Nearly doubling your career receiving yard mark in one... Read More

2 weeks ago

Terry McLaurin (WR, WAS) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Virtually every NFL team has a wide receiver who can be considered fantasy relevant, but things in Washington were such a mess entering this season that no one seemed to have any idea which receiver -- if any -- would be the... Read More

2 weeks ago

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: Giovani Bernard outcarried Joe Mixon (ankle) seven to six in Week 1 against the Seahawks after the latter left with an injury. While Bernard was nothing special on the ground -- 3.0 yards per carry for 21 yards -- Mixon could wind up... Read More

2 weeks ago


Ronald Jones II (RB, TB) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: No rookie had a worse year in 2018 than Ronald Jones II. The USC product played in just nine games and ran 23 times for 44 yards (1.9 yards per tote) and only one touchdown. He worked hard in the offseason and was... Read More

2 weeks ago

Gardner Minshew (QB, JAC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Week 1 didn't go well for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who saw their starting quarterback Nick Foles leave the game early with a broken collarbone and land on the injured reserve. That'll put the most important position in football in the hands of sixth-round... Read More

2 weeks ago

Malcolm Brown (RB, LAR) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: Much was made this offseason about the Rams' plan to limit Todd Gurley's workload in order to keep him healthy for the entire season. We finally got to see that plan in action in Week 1 against the Panthers. But it was veteran... Read More

2 weeks ago

Marquise Brown (WR, BAL) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: Very few expected much from Marquise Brown in his regular season NFL debut in a run-first offense, especially since he had missed some practices and preseason games while recovering from a Lisfranc foot injury. Not only did he look fully healthy, but Brown... Read More

2 weeks ago

Mecole Hardman (WR, KC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While there's still not much clarity on the Tyreek Hill injury situation, we do know that Hill is set to miss at least some time, leaving the Kansas City Chiefs fairly light at the wide receiver position. There's Sammy Watkins, who was the... Read More

2 weeks ago


Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Minnesota Vikings running game was out in full force in Week 1 and rookie running back Alexander Mattison played a big part in it. In his NFL debut, Mattison had nine carries for 49 yards, averaging a solid 5.4 yards per carry.... Read More

2 weeks ago

Devante Parker (WR, MIA) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has been the definition of inconsistency throughout the first four years of his NFL career. There've been flashes of brilliance followed by weeks of complete irrelevance. But is there reason to believe this year could be different?... Read More

2 weeks ago

John Ross (WR, CIN) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: John Ross was largely overlooked as a fantasy asset this offseason, despite Cincinnati's thin wide receiver depth chart and a large potential workload with A.J. Green on the sidelines. Since being selected ninth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, Ross has been... Read More

2 weeks ago

Matthew Stafford (QB, DET) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Last week's game against the Cardinals could be a predictor of future performance for Matthew Stafford. Stafford has thrown for over 4,200 yards in every season since 2011, except last season's downtrodden performance where he finished with 3,777 yards and 21 touchdowns. This season,... Read More

2 weeks ago

Mike Davis (RB, CHI) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While all the Bears talk of the offseason was about rookie David Montgomery, it was former Seahawks running back Mike Davis who saw the most usage in Chicago's season-opening loss to the Green Bay Packers. Davis carried the ball five times for... Read More

Mike Davis (RB, CHI) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

A lot has been said about what is and what is not a sleeper. And in most cases, looking at sleeper lists, one gets truly surprised to find some great names thrown in them. This season, to me, there are not many players that can be considered capital-S Sleepers like Mike Davis can be. Be it because... Read More

Sammy Watkins (WR, KC) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~67 Overall Current ADP: ~90 Currently, Sammy Watkins is barely a tier-five WR in our rankings with an ADP around 90. All of this while being the number three receiver on a Chiefs team that will have the undisputed QB1 of the league at the helm. Production is coming, whether you... Read More

Larry Fitzgerald (WR, ARI) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~80 Overall Current ADP: ~100 The hype surrounding Kyler Murray is real. Everybody is buying into Arizona's fast-paced and bombing offense under Kliff Kingsbury. Oh, and Larry Fitzgerald will keep burning defenses as he has been doing for the last gazillion years. Some things never change. Who are we trying to lie by... Read More
