2019 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Darrel Williams (RB, KC) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: My thoughts on Darrel Williams are directly tied to my thoughts on another subject: whatever is going on with LeSean McCoy. McCoy was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Titans, with the indication being that the team wanted to ensure... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook leads in the NFL in rushing yards, so surely his backup doesn't have any standalone value in fantasy football, right? Well, Alexander Mattison has finished with at least 50 rushing yards in four of the past... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Well, Ronald Jones II is the starting running back in Tampa Bay now, so no need to keep Peyton Barber on your rosters or to grab him off waivers, right? Well, about that. Jones started, but it was Barber who got late... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The post-Kerryon Johnson injury Lions haven't had the best of luck at running back. Johnson last played in Week 7; since then, Tra Carson, Ty Johnson, Paul Perkins, and J.D. McKissic have all seen snaps at running back for Detroit. Carson played one... Read More

Brian Hill (RB, ATL) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The 2019 season has not been kind to the Atlanta Falcons from a win-loss perspective, and now they've started to add the injury bug on top of things. Before Atlanta's Week 10 game, the team placed backup running back Ito Smith (neck) on... Read More

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dallas Goedert must be one of the most underappreciated players in all of (fantasy) football, and surely one of the most under-the-radar assets out there. With just a 17% ownership rate, he outperformed one of the best tight ends in the league,... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It looks like fantasy owners have not caught up yet with Noah Fant’s exploits in Week 8, as his ownership rate is still at 12% is a little baffling. Sure, Fant has experienced the rookie-aids all season long and has not put on... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Bears offense isn't one to trust this year with Mitchell Trubisky leading it, but somehow Taylor Gabriel has been able to perform to a rather high level considering his environment. Being honest, Trubisky was able to complete quite a nice game in... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Since the start of the season Diontae Johnson has had up and downs but so far he’s the no. 2 wide receiver in Pittsburgh in snaps played (305) only behind JuJu Smith-Schuster (415). For someone playing that many snaps and averaging more than... Read More

Keelan Cole (WR, JAX) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Jaguars have lost two receivers in Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee, both of whom could be out for an extended period of time. though Westbrook has a chance to return in Week 11.

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dawson Knox lost fantasy owners’ favor during the past few weeks due to his underwhelming performances from weeks 5 to 9 but he came back this past weekend putting on a 9.5-point game that bolstered his value back a bit. The third-round rookie... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Another week, another game of backing up for Nyheim Hines in Indianapolis.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Back from their bye, the Falcons beat the Saints in Week 10 with Russell Gage again featuring prominently in Atlanta’s attack.

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Brandon Allen was the one to replace Joe Flacco and probably end his tenure in Denver prematurely after the veteran fell to injury. Allen is not young himself but is the only quarterback playable by the Broncos with Drew Lock in IR. Allen was... Read More

2 days ago

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Saints had a horrible game against Atlanta this past weekend. They couldn’t score a single touchdown and finished with just three field goals and a big 26-9 defeat. Worst of all, Ginn didn’t even catch a single pass in a game in... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton had a monster outing in Week 10 against the Jets.

Olabisi Johnson (WR, MIN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of leagues ANALYSIS: Olabisi Johnson came into the season as an unknown in Minnesota, but has garnered some attention in recent weeks with his production on the field.

Jay Ajayi (RB, FA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Detroit Lions have been working out free agent running back Jay Ajayi this week, and if he indeed ends up signing with the team, he could become a potential asset as an RB2 or at least a flex during the final... Read More

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I was the first to expect a heavier workload for both Jack Doyle and/or Eric Ebron this week after T.Y. Hilton was ruled out with an injury, but that wasn’t the case. Doyle was targeted four times and Ebron did so on two... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: What a relief. After a great game in Week 7 (eight targets, six receptions, 64 yards) with Ryan Tannehill as the starter quarterback, A.J. Brown went on and upset his owners all around the nation being targeted just three times in Week 8... Read More

Kalen Ballage (RB, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: In Week 9, Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage saw his highest snap total since Week 3. He logged 21 snaps in the game and carried the ball seven times for 19 yards. A disappointing output most definitely, but when you consider... Read More

1 week ago

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Bears are hard to trust in fantasy terms with Mitch Trubisky manning the QB position, but another week, another great--withing Chicago’s limits--performance by Taylor Gabriel. In a game in which Trubisky could only complete 10 passes for 125 yards, Gabriel completed a... Read More

1 week ago


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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: At the beginning of the season, not many people would have thought Ryan Tannehill could provide fantasy value in 2019, but here we are heading into Week 10 where he is worth an add in 14-team leagues. Tannehill was named the starter... Read More

1 week ago

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After seeing him go down with an injury, the Broncos opted to place Joe Flacco on injured reserve and thus to end his season.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With New Orleans coming back from its bye week, not a lot has changed around Ted Ginn Jr. and his situation in the Saints attack.

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I do not feel great about recommending Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Breshad Perriman as a waiver wire option, but as someone who pays a lot of attention to targets, I have to pay some attention to Perriman. The fourth-year wideout had... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Welcome to the Darius Slayton Show, folks.

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I’m not discovering new grounds here by saying Nyheim Hines is the clear backup and second option to Marlon Mack’s RB1 role in Indy. That is clear as water, but at the same time Hines has a very defined role in the Colts... Read More

1 week ago

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Feelings about Russell Gage after his first notable performance of the year were mixed, and the fact that that performance came in Week 8 and his ownership is still at zero is a good sign of that, as people didn't deem him...

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If we were discussing a potential trade target here instead of a waiver wire pickup, Dallas Goedert would clearly qualify as a go-to buy-low candidate. From Week 6 to Week 8, Goedert had out-performed Zach Ertz each and every time they shared the... 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: Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley continues to be a mostly solid PPR option in his first year with the Bills.

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After being traded to the Tennessee Titans this past off-season, Ryan Tannehill has had his chance to show what he can do the last few weeks.

Jaylen Samuels (RB, PIT) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After finally breaking out last week against the Dolphins, James Conner reminded us of the talent that he is and the upside that he brings fantasy owners.

Sam Darnold (QB, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After a rough start to the 2019 NFL Season, Sam Darnold has been a bit disappointing for fantasy owners. There’s a good chance that he’s a waiver wire option, even in Superflex and 2QB leagues. He’s missed three games this season, played in... Read More

Chris Herndon (TE, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It’s getting a little bit frustrating with Chris Herndon IV’s weekly injury news, but we need to stay patient.

Mark Walton (RB, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Kenyan Drake era is officially over in Miami, as the Dolphins traded him early on Monday morning to the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: You are not going to call Dallas Goedert Philadelphia’s leading tight end any time soon, but what if all we’re seeing is actually for real? For the second week in a row, Zach Ertz was outperformed by Goedert. With the Eagles running all over... Read More

Darren Fells (TE, HOU) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As a long-time Houston Texans fan, I've been suspicious of Darren Fells because the Bill O'Brien era has definitely not been kind to tight ends. But after another two touchdown performance, it's time to admit that Fells is worth a roster spot... Read More

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Josh Reynolds had his best game of the season by a longshot in Week 8 against the Bengals, catching three of his eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown.

Keelan Cole (WR, JAX) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If there is a week to pick Keelan Cole up, it is this one.

Raheem Mostert (RB, SF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert had a solid fantasy day in Week 8, despite his teammate, fellow running back Tevin Coleman, stealing the headlines.
