ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Brandon Allen entered his second professional game aiming to upset the Vikings to go 2-0 in the season, but he couldn’t keep up his early success and finishing carrying the loss. That didn’t mean he had a terrible game, though, as he finished the... Read More

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

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

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. Enter Brandon Allen, the 27-year-old backup quarterback for Denver that took the reigns of the team for the first time... Read More

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. The Titans benched Marcus Mariota and Tannehill played about half of the game in Week 6 against... Read More

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

Teddy Bridgewater (QB, NO) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Unfortunately for Saints fans, Drew Brees has missed the majority of the season so far with a thumb injury in Week 2 against the Chargers. Teddy Bridgewater has stepped up in a big way and the Saints are currently 6-1. While Brees is... Read More

Kyle Allen (QB, CAR) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of leagues ANALYSIS: I have to confess that I love bye weeks. Actually, what I like the most is not the fact of teams not playing for a weekend, but rather the moment when they are ready to come back. A lot of players are dropped... Read More

Sam Darnold (QB, NYJ) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Raise your hand if you thought the New York Jets offense was an abject disaster before Sunday's win over the Cowboys. *waits* That's what I thought. With Sam Darnold (mono) out, the Jets looked so lost that even getting Darnold back felt... Read More

Joe Flacco (QB, DEN) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Nobody cares about Joe Flacco because Joe Flacco is one of the blandest players in the league, but in fantasy football, some storylines and playing trends don’t have a lot of importance. Actually, after moving from Baltimore to Denver, Joe Flacco has been his... 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

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

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

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

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

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

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...

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

Kyle Allen (QB, CAR) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of leagues ANALYSIS: With all of the recent news and buzz surrounding the Panthers star quarterback Cam Newton, there has been some cause for concern that is hard to ignore. After heading into the season with questions regarding his health, we've seen Newton sidelined... Read More

Mason Rudolph (QB, PIT) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, Ben Roethlisberger was viewed as a solid late-round quarterback option who would likely put up solid fantasy numbers yet again. Unfortunately for the Steelers, that will not be the case as Roethlisberger will spend the year on Injured... Read More

Daniel Jones (QB, NYG) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Well... While it's too early for the Daniel Jones naysayers to eat crow -- which is good since I was one of them -- his performance in Week 3 was good. Like, historically good. Rookies making their first NFL start don't put... Read More

Jacoby Brissett (QB, IND) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Remember when Andrew Luck retired and it looked like doomsday for Indianapolis fans and fantasy GMs who had already drafted him? Drop those fears and trust Brissett! Listen, Jacoby Brissett might not be a league winner, but out of the quarterbacks that mostly... Read More

Gardner Minshew (QB, JAX) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2QB Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I hope you don't bring prejudices with you and you can bear with me on this one. Gardner Minshew looks like a legit NFL quarterback. I'm saying that about a guy who plays at the most important position for a mediocre team in... 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

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

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 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.

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.
