2019 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

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

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

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

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...

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

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

5 days 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

5 days 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. He only turned his eight targets this past week into 27 yards, but... Read More

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

5 days 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

5 days 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

6 days 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

6 days ago

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

6 days 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

6 days 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

6 days 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

6 days 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

6 days ago

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. Ginn was... Read More

6 days ago

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

6 days ago

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

6 days 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

6 days ago

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

6 days 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

6 days 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

2 weeks ago

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. He also rushed three times for six yards. Hines is a weapon in the passing... Read More

2 weeks ago


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. That is why fantasy GMs all around the nation picked Calvin Ridley over Mohamed Sanu. And that is why I will keep loving my oldies year after year because I... Read More

2 weeks ago

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

2 weeks ago

Chris Herndon IV (TE, NYJ) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The team's fourth-round pick in 2018, Chris Herndon IV must sit out one more game before he can return from his four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Remember the Jets just had their bye week, so they've only played three... Read More

2 weeks ago

Diontae Johnson (WR, PIT) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Third-round rookie Diontae Johnson, not second-year receiver James Washington, has emerged as the No. 2 wideout in Pittsburgh behind JuJu Smith-Schuster after four weeks. The 5-foot-10, 183-pounder from Toledo has the speed and quickness to gain separation and beat defenders down the... Read More

2 weeks ago


Ricky Seals-Jones (TE, CLE) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: I've been very into the idea of tight end Ricky Seals-Jones for a few years now, but he never could put things together with the Arizona Cardinals. I eventually cut bait in all of my dynasty leagues, and of course now is when... Read More

2 weeks ago

Cole Beasley (WR, BUF) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cole Beasley has yet to score a touchdown. He has scored two or more from 2013 on, missing on the feat just in his 2012 rookie season. That's bad, right? Wrong. Beasly hasn't scored yet, but all the rest of his... Read More

2 weeks ago

Antonio Callaway (WR, CLE) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway will be making his debut in Week 5 after being suspended for the first four games of the season due to violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The timing of his return could be fortunate from... Read More

2 weeks ago

Keke Coutee (WR, HOU) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee has been nearly invisible this season, with former Dolphin Kenny Stills coming over via a trade just before the season and quickly establishing himself as Houston's third receiver. But Stills is dealing with a hamstring issue... Read More

2 weeks ago

Gardner Minshew (QB, JAX) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Gardner Minshew mania has reached a fever pitch. The mustachioed signal-caller has led the Jaguars to two straight wins and has thrown for 905 yards, seven touchdowns and only one interception in four games to begin the year with Nick Foles (collarbone) on... Read More

2 weeks ago


Dexter Williams (RB, GB) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: Opportunity trumps all else in fantasy football. With Jamaal Williams on the receiving end of a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on Thursday night, it seems likely that Dexter Williams will now find himself with an opportunity for playing time this coming Sunday. While the... Read More

2 weeks ago

Deebo Samuel (WR, SF) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Believe it or not, Deebo Samuel is still available in three out of four leagues out there. Yes, he's not the no- 1 option in San Francisco's offense. Yes, his raw numbers don't jump off the page at first sight. Yes, he... Read More

2 weeks ago

Dwayne Haskins (QB, WAS) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in two-QB leagues OWNED IN: 3% of leagues ANALYSIS: Yes, the number-one reason you're adding Dwayne Haskins in a two-QB league is that everyone in the league's got three quarterbacks already and you just really need a body. Nothing about his NFL debut should have been exciting to you, as Haskins came... Read More

2 weeks ago

Benjamin Watson (TE, NE) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: So, Benjamin Watson. After retiring this past offseason, Watson decided to unretire and join the Patriots. He was then promptly hit with a four-game PED suspension. That suspension is over. Tom Brady has a tight end now. This could be good. Watson... Read More

2 weeks ago

Noah Fant (TE, DEN) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: We all know the old story about rookie tight ends and how they struggle to adapt to the NFL. Noah Fant's no exception to that rule, as through four games he hasn't surpassed 37 receiving yards in a single game. But he's... Read More

2 weeks ago


Gerald Everett (TE, LAR) - Week 5 Waiver Wire

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Finding a tight end to rely on is becoming increasingly problematic in deep leagues. The dearth of talent at the position forces owners to keep returning to tantalizing but underperforming options, like Gerald Everett, who has never quite matched the hopes many had... Read More

2 weeks ago

Parris Campbell (WR, IND) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Slowly but surely, Parris Campbell has seen his role increase in the passing offense. The second-round rookie had just two targets and two catches in the first two weeks, but he's since had eight catches (11 targets) for 49 yards the last two... Read More

2 weeks ago

DeVante Parker (WR, MIA) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Nobody wants to roster players from the Dolphins. Understandable to an extent, even in Devante Parker's case. Miami is on pace to complete a historically bad season. The Dolphins have scored two touchdowns in four games, accrued a league-worst 900 yards on... Read More

2 weeks ago

Jeffrey Wilson (RB, SF) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We shouldn't lie to us by hailing Jeffrey Wilson as the next big thing. He isn't such a player, far from it. But he could be on his way to be the ultimate vulture and fantasy weapon if San Francisco keeps using... Read More

2 weeks ago

Jamaal Williams (RB, GB) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Bad for supporters of the #FreeAaronJones movement, but great for fantasy GMs, Green Bay's backfield looks like it'd showcase an even split between Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams weekly. Through three games that was the case, and although Williams had to leave... Read More

2 weeks ago


Kenny Stills (WR, HOU) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tough luck for Kenny Stills in his Week 4 game. Stills had to leave the game in the first quarter after pulling a hamstring running after catching a pass with a non-contact injury. We don't know more about the injury, or the... Read More

2 weeks ago

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: We keep saying over and over again that tight end is a wasteland. A few guys will pop for a week or two, but you really only have six guys that you feel confident starting every week: Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Zach Ertz,... Read More

2 weeks ago

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It is a little mindboggling how recency bias can affect our choices. You just have to look at Eric Ebron's and Jack Doyle's 2018 season. Ebron finished the year with a completely unsustainable--albeit historical, one must acknowledge--stat line of 66 receptions, 750... Read More

2 weeks ago

Tony Pollard (RB, DAL) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Leagues ANALYSIS: There's been a rather clear trend in the usage of Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard through four games this year. When the Cowboys have blown out opponents, Pollard has earned ten-plus touches. When the Cowboys have won close but comfortably, Pollard... Read More

2 weeks ago

Ryquell Armstead (RB, JAX) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Ryquell Armstead earned his first significant opportunity in an NFL game in Week 4. He carried the ball eight times for 42 yards and caught his only target in the passing game for seven yards. The team's... Read More
