2019 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

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

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

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

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

Week 1 Waiver Wire Pickups & Adds

Welcome to the 2019 NFL season and our first edition of the Waiver Wire weekly series for fantasy football! It might seem early to be talking waivers since the season hasn't officially started yet. I'm here to tell you it's never too early to find ways to improve your team! If you're like me and... Read More

Derek Carr (QB, OAK) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

You can convince me about drafting a top-tier running back inside the first four or five picks; we're talking about true game-changers there. You can convince me about drafting a top-tier wide receiver from picks five to 15; there are just a few elite-wideouts available, after all. But will you never convince me of getting... Read More

Philip Rivers (QB, LAC) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~120 Overall Current ADP: ~130 For the wait-on-quarterback crowd, Philip Rivers is the embodiment of why it's perfectly fine to be one of the last people in your league to draft a QB. I continue to be amazed by how undervalued he is from year to year. His "worst" season in... Read More

Kirk Cousins (QB, MIN) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~145 In 2018, Kirk Cousins finished as the fantasy QB13, which is just at the edge of the QB1 tier. So why did Fantasy Football Twitter collectively decide that Cousins was a complete bust last season? Well, Cousins had gotten a lot of hype behind him when he went to Minnesota.... Read More

Sam Darnold (QB, NYJ) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

The New York Jets and quarterback Sam Darnold enter 2019 expecting to improve upon their 4-12 record from a season ago. To achieve this, they have brought in free-agent running back Le'Veon Bell and former Miami Dolphins Head Coach Adam Gase. The Jets feel that adding these two pieces should significantly improve their offense, which finished... Read More

Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB, MIA) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

What we enjoyed in Tampa Bay just last year with the Winston-Fitz pair we will enjoy in Miami with Fitzpatrick joining Josh Rosen. Prepare for some fireworks, because they are coming. To call Ryan Fitzpatrick a sleeper is falling short. Fitzpatrick is more akin to your sleeper's favorite sleeper if anything at all. Let me... Read More

Lamar Jackson (QB, BAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

Heading into your fantasy football draft, remember that quarterback is not a position you need to target early in the draft. Historically, there always are sleepers available late that could help you win a championship. We had a perfect example of this last season with Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes was only the 16th-ranked quarterback in drafts... Read More

Dak Prescott (QB, DAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~110 Overall Current ADP: ~120 Prescott finished at QB10 in scoring last season, which continued his streak of placing within the top 10 during each of his three professional seasons. However, his current ADP leaves him available after 14 other quarterbacks have been selected during the draft process. That lack of... Read More

Josh Allen (QB, BUF) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~140 Overall Current ADP: ~160 Ongoing concerns about Allen’s deficiencies as a passer have lingered in the aftermath of last season’s 52.8 completion percentage. However, any apprehension about drafting the second-year signal-caller should be overshadowed by his scoring potential as a dual-threat performer. This provides the prospects of significant production during... Read More

Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

The final week of the NFL season always brings a high degree of uncertainty, unexpected breakouts, and a slew of DNPs for star players.

Week 17 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

Why are you still playing season-long fantasy? It's Week 17 for goodness sake. Let's make like the Raiders and pack it in for the year. There's a golf course in Tampa with Jon Gruden's name on it.

Week 16 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

It's Championship week in most fantasy football leagues, and a rough week to be streaming quarterbacks at that. Most of the truly terrible defenses are taking on universally owned quarterbacks, which means slim pickings on waivers. Philip Rivers against the Ravens and Jared Goff against the Cardinals are the two highly-owned quarterbacks facing tough matchups... Read More

Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

If at least one of your fantasy teams is still in contention for a championship, congratulations. Rather than wishing you good luck in Week 15, it would be more prudent to offer sage advice on which waiver wire adds could become valuable streamers or backups for the last couple of weeks of the 2018 season....

Week 15 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

It's the semi-finals in most fantasy leagues, so most owners should have their quarterback locked in permanently. If that's not the case don't fear, there are still good streaming options available in plenty of leagues. There are a few tough matchups for highly-owned quarterbacks this week. Aaron Rodgers @ Chicago, Matt Ryan vs. ARI, Matt... Read More

Josh Johnson (QB, WSH) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Maybe the Skins lucked themselves into a quarterback. The top pick in the recent AAF quarterback draft (don't tell me you're not familiar with the Alliance of America Football), Josh Johnson was brought in to be the backup to Mark Sanchez because, well it's good to...

Nick Mullens (QB, SF) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens has proved his mettle the last couple of weeks after being on the verge of losing the starting job following Week 12. He threw for 332 yards and a pair of scores against the Broncos, giving him consecutive... Read More

Ryan Tannehill (QB, MIA) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Miami Miracle overshadowed everything else that happened in the stunning victory over the Patriots in Week 14. Before that last-second upset, quarterback Ryan Tannehill had himself a fine day, throwing for 265 yards and three TD. That ranks him better than Aaron Rodgers or Jameis Winston for... Read More

Eli Manning (QB, NYG) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Not long ago, a road matchup with Washington looked like a tough task. Instead, it was a laugher from the start as New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning tossed three touchdowns and 197 yards in just 22 pass attempts before being relieved by Kyle Lauletta....

Derek Carr (QB, OAK) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is, in this writer’s opinion, better than his numbers have shown over the course of the season. He unfortunately suffers from a dearth of talent surrounding him on the Oakland offense, particularly on the offensive line. While his supporting cast... Read More

Joe Flacco (QB, BAL) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: This is obviously contingent on Lamar Jackson’s status for next week, but if Jackson’s injury is more serious than initially believed than Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will fall into a dream matchup against Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers have allowed the third-most fantasy points... Read More

Jeff Driskel (QB, CIN) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: This one is purely matchup-based, as Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jeff Driskel hasn’t done much to prove himself since taking over for Andy Dalton in Week 12. He hasn’t been bad, but he’s been a low-ceiling game-manager type. His already low-ceiling is hurt with A.J. Green on the... Read More

Josh Allen (QB, BUF) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Even though Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen meets the ownership threshold to be a deep-league option, he can be considered in leagues of all depth. Allen has been everything we’ve wanted Lamar Jackson to be since Allen returned from injury. In his three games... Read More

Case Keenum (QB, DEN) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It looks like the ceiling is going to remain low for Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum regardless of matchup; he only threw for 151 yards and one score in a mouth-watering matchup with the Bengals. The running game will keep doing the heavy lifting... Read More

Ryan Tannehill (QB, MIA) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Dolphins finally finished what they started and came away with a victory over Buffalo, as quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for three touchdowns. He's still being held back by his coaching staff, throwing 24 times on the day for 137 yards after throwing 25... Read More

Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

The picture is pretty clear for fantasy owners seeking help on the waiver wire.

Josh Rosen (QB, ARI) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As far as relying on a rookie QB for the fantasy playoff stretch, it's definitely not advised. Those looking for a streaming option in TwoQB leagues could consider Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen at home against the Lions, who allow the 11th-most fantasy points... Read More

Josh Allen (QB, BUF) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is outdoing Lamar Jackson at his own game, rushing for 135 yards in Week 13 after rushing for 99 in Week 12.

Week 13 Quarterbacks - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

We've got some exciting options still on waivers this week, as a few potentially league-winning quarterbacks are still available in far too many leagues. There are no more bye weeks, which means fewer owners will need fill-in quarterbacks. It also means there will be less competition on waivers for quarterbacks, and a few high-end backups...

Josh Allen (QB, BUF) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is raw in terms of passing ability, but he put up 26.3 points thanks to a 13 carry, 99 yard, one touchdown rushing performance this week against Jacksonville. He went just 8-for-19 passing for 160 yards and a touchdown... Read More

Derek Carr (QB, WSH) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Considering Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had a road game in Baltimore with a depleted receiving corps, he didn't do too badly. 197 yards and one TD won't get the job done in fantasy, but a matchup with the Chiefs might actually work in...

Case Keenum (QB, DEN) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The ceiling seems to get lower for Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum each week. The Broncos as a whole may not be missing Demaryius Thomas too much, but there isn't a wealth of quality options for him in the receiving corps. Keenum retains some level of... Read More

Eli Manning (QB, NYG) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We saw more of early-season Eli Manning in Week 12, as he threw for a good amount of yardage (297) but only found the end zone once. The Eagles don't quite qualify as a tough defense anymore so we can only excuse him so... Read More

Colt McCoy (QB, WSH) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Eagles were without their top three cornerbacks in Week 12, and those injured players joined three other defensive backs on the sidelines, as Philadelphia’s secondary has been decimated by injury like no other. Poor Malcolm Jenkins is left picking up the slack of... Read More

Lamar Jackson (QB, BAL) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Marty Mornhinweg and the Ravens took an alternative approach to their gameplan this week, and quarterback Lamar Jackson had a stat line that looked more like that of a bell cow running back than a quarterback. He rushed 27 times for 117 yards, while... Read More

Jameis Winston (QB, TB) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Oh Dirk Koetter, how about a little decisiveness? A little conviction.

Week 12 Quarterbacks - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

It was another week full of excitement, tragedy, and confusion at the quarterback position.
