Fantasy Football Waiver Wire by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Tim Patrick (WR, DEN) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Up until his week fourteen performance against the San Francisco 49ers, Broncos rookie and University of Utah alumnus Tim Patrick had accumulated just four receptions out of eleven targets for 67 receiving yards through twelve games played. In fact, the most targets he had seen in a game up until that point had been four which came in week nine againstcontinue reading...

It's Championship Week, at least for most of you, so every lineup decision is critical. Hopefully, we've been able to help you along the way with some key waiver wire recommendations. Whether you're looking for an injury replacement or playing matchups, there could be a potential league-winner waiting for you to add. Let's do it one more time. In this weekly waiver wire series, we provide a curated list of fantasy-viable players that are typically ownedcontinue reading...

Week 16 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

It is Week 16 of the NFL season and if you are still setting a fantasy football lineup this week, it means you are more than likely playing for a championship! If you are not, you should be because Week 17 fantasy football championships should be against the law. Either way, congrats if you are still worried about matchups and the waiver wire this week. Even this deep into the season, you should have your eyecontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 16 Lightning Round

Whether you're approaching your championship game, playing for third place or looking to avoid the sacko, we here at RotoBaller are here to help and get you waiver information as fast (and as accurately) as possible. Consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 16. This column is published early every week and then updated after the MNF game. Each day of the week will also yield other more in-depth waiver wirecontinue reading...

John Ross (WR, CIN) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Things have been getting extremely ugly for the Cincinnati Bengals. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green have been out for the past few weeks and are both out for the remainder of the season, Jeff Driskel is starting at quarterback, Marvin Lewis is (it has to be true this time right?) probably on the way out, andcontinue reading...

Curtis Samuel (WR, CAR) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Things haven't been going well for the Carolina Panthers in their attempt to take a hold of the NFC wild card spot, but the heightened play of Curtis Samuel amidst an uptick in on-the-field opportunity has been a recent bright spot. The Panthers and offensive coordinator Norv Turner have deployed Samuel in a variety of situations so far through 2018. In tencontinue reading...

Chris Conley (WR, KC) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It sounds like Tyreek Hill is dealing with a foot injury that could cause some issues the remainder of the season and the often injured Sammy Watkins continues to miss time. So as Kansas City prepares to face the Chargers in Week 15, is it possible that Chris Conley could be the WR1 for that game? It is possiblecontinue reading...

Robert Foster (WR, BUF) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Foster is demanding attention with a series of big games and a golden opportunity to establish himself as an every-week starter. His seven-catch, 104-yard effort in Week 14 makes three of the last four games in which he's gotten at least 90 yards. As a speedster on a run-first offense, there will be many peaks and valleys.continue reading...

Zay Jones (WR, BUF) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: All the stars were aligned for Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones to have a monster game in Week 14 with the Jets on tap and Kelvin Benjamin out of the way but it just didn't happen. He was targeted nine times and proved to be Josh Allen's favorite receiver as expected but he only pulled downcontinue reading...

Jamison Crowder (WR, WSH) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of Leagues ANALYSIS: You can't be blamed for forgetting about Jamison Crowder and avoiding him this week with Mark Sanchez behind center. He was a non-factor until Josh Johnson took over and hit him in stride for a 79-yard TD in which Crowder really did most of the work. He only had one other catch for nine yards butcontinue reading...

Daesean Hamilton (WR, DEN) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 37 of Leagues ANALYSIS: We knew some of the other rookie receivers would need to step up with Emmanuel Sanders on IR and they did. Daesean Hamilton caught seven passes for 47 yards and a touchdown, far outpacing Courtland Sutton who finished with two catches for 14 yards. Although Tim Patrick saw more targets and yards, Hamilton got thecontinue reading...

Robby Anderson (WR, NYJ) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Sam Darnold back at QB, it was Robby Anderson as the latest Jets receiver to randomly pop off for a big fantasy game. Anderson finished with four receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown against a Buffalo team that is statistically the best in the league against opposing WRs. The Texans aren't a much better matchup but Anderson has thecontinue reading...

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. In this weekly waiver wire series, we provide a curated list of fantasy-viable players that are typically owned in less thancontinue reading...

Week 15 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

Hopefully you survived Week 14 of the football season, a week that was littered with the unexpected. Owners were still battling injuries, including unexpected ones like Odell Beckham Jr and when we ran to look for help, a majority of the players we leaned on where underwhelming at best. So, if your fantasy season is still alive, here are some guys we may hev forgotten about and some up and comers. Instead ofcontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 15 Lightning Round

The fantasy football playoffs are off and running, and we here at RotoBaller are here to help and get you waiver information as fast (and as accurately) as possible for your championship push. Consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 15. This column is published early every week and then updated after the MNF game. Each day of the week will also yield other more in-depth waiver wire articles forcontinue reading...

David Moore (WR, SEA) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore has gone without a catch in back-to-back games, but is still a good play for Week 15. Moore was not targeted in either of the last two games as well, odd considering that he had a 103-yard game against the Panthers in Week 12. For the season, Moore has caught 22 of his 43 targets forcontinue reading...

John Ross (WR, CIN) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Cincinnati Bengals have place wide receiver A.J. Green (toe) on IR, opening up space for second-year receiver John Ross to take on a bigger role in the Bengals offense. Ross was targeted 20 times in the first three games that A.J. Green missed this season. He wasn't particularly effective in those games in terms of yardage, finishingcontinue reading...

Curtis Samuel (WR, CAR) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS:Fantasy owners have been drawn to Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel recently due to his touchdown upside after finding the end zone four time in four games but in Week 14, Samuel also added the volume to his touchdown upside. Samuel had six catches on 11 targets for 88 yards and even though he didn’t find the end zone, it appears Samuelcontinue reading...

Dante Pettis (WR, SF) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis is a player we urged all of you to pick up last week, but a must start against the Seattle Seahawks turned out to be an excellent call as well. After 129 yards on five catches and his second touchdown in as many weeks, Pettis has settled into a prime role with the Sancontinue reading...

Antonio Callaway (WR, CLE) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Another six targets on Sunday turned into 84 yards on three catches and if Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway could have held onto the football at the goal line, he would have had a touchdown as well. Callaway is still the deep threat and big play maker in Cleveland which will come in handy Week 14 during a potential shootout withcontinue reading...

Bruce Ellington (WR, DET) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions offense were in big need of help at the wide receiver position after dealing Golden Tate to the Eagles, and as a result, they took a chance on Bruce Ellington who had been a part of the Houston Texans as recently as week three. He has played in justcontinue reading...

Zay Jones (WR, BUF) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We profiled Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones after his Week 2 performance and we had some, well, let’s call them interesting reactions. Most of the fantasy football community has probably forgotten about Jones at this point and considering he plays for one of the more volatile teams in all of football, why would you need to remember him. We haven’t quite givencontinue reading...

Josh Doctson (WR, WSH) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson has been targeted at least five times in four of the last five games. While he has not caught a touchdown in three games, he was targeted 10 times against the Cowboys last week and had a 32-yard catch against the Eagles on Monday night. There are issues with adding Doctson, though, as the Skins havecontinue reading...

Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

The picture is pretty clear for fantasy owners seeking help on the waiver wire. All the good quarterbacks are gone, the tight end outlook is bleak at best, there are a ton of wide receivers who could pop in a given week, and one RB (in Pittsburgh) stands clearly above the rest in a group of rookies that are starting to make noise. In this weekly waiver wire series, we provide a curated list of fantasy-viablecontinue reading...

Week 14 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

Alright, let switch things up this week. We are headed into Week 14 and for most fantasy football owners, your league is starting the playoffs. Since you are reading this I am going to assume you have either made the playoffs and need some more help or you just love fantasy football columns that combine decent advice with a little humor. Well, you have found the right place. Instead of going in depth on a fewcontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 14 Lightning Round

Welcome to this quick waiver overview as we head towards those fantasy playoffs. Congratulations to those of you who are already in, those with byes looking forward to Week 15, as well as those with leagues that continue the regular season through Week 14. We here at RotoBaller are here to help and get you waiver information as fast (and as accurately) as possible, so consider this the waiver wire lightning round headingcontinue reading...

Marcell Ateman (WR, OAK) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Maybe there's some hope in Oakland after all. The Raiders put up 33 points in a shockingly close game against the Chiefs, with wide receiver Marcell Ateman scoring one of their four touchdowns on the day. Ateman only caught a total of two balls for 16 yards, so don't expect him to be more than a touchdown-dependent streamer in leagues that require fivecontinue reading...

Michael Gallup (WR, DAL) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Is it a coincidence that the Dallas Cowboys have been playing better football since the Amari Cooper trade? Cooper has made everyone on the team better from Dak Prescott to Ezekiel Elliott and now wide receiver Michael Gallup. In the Cowboys big Week 13 win against the Saints, Gallup had five catches for 76 yards on seven targets. Gallup hasn’tcontinue reading...

DeVante Parker (WR, MIA) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After a win against the Buffalo Bills, the Miami Dolphins continue to hang around in the AFC playoff picture. The Dolphins have had some issues on offense this season with injuries as they lost their starting quarter back for a stretch and now two wide receivers over the past several weeks. Even Danny Amendola was out for Week 13. This is giving wide receivercontinue reading...

David Moore (WR, SEA) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore was not targeted in Seattle's game against the 49ers on Sunday, yet is still a good waiver addition. Moore tallied 103 receiving yards against the Panthers in Week 12, grabbing his 5th touchdown catch of the season. While he has only been targeted 37 times this season, he has caught 22 of those passes. Catching five touchdownscontinue reading...

Kenny Stills (WR, MIA) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Still grabbed a touchdown in the Dolphins' 21-17 win over the Bills on Sunday and has been targeted more in each of the last four weeks. After registering just one target against the Jets on November 4, Stills grabbed four of his six targets. For the season, Stills has 24 catches on 43 targets, tallying 369 yards and five touchdowns. Headcontinue reading...

Kendrick Bourne (WR, SF) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne is trending upwards right now and is worth a lottery ticket add in deeper PPR leagues. Bourne has been targeted 21 times over the past four games, and he was on the field for 88 percent of the team's offensive snaps on Sunday against Tampa Bay. There's probably not a very high ceiling for Bourne ascontinue reading...

Equanimeous St. Brown (WR, GB) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: At first glance, buying stock in Equanimeous St. Brown would appear to be an unwise choice, even in deeper formats. In eight games played this season he has ranked seventh on the Packers in targets with 24, eighth on the team in receptions with 13, and sixth on the team in receiving yards with 215 without a single trip to thecontinue reading...

Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

No more byes, no more excuses to be unprepared. At this point, if you're still scouring the waiver wire for value, you are either looking to bolster your bench for the playoff run or desperately looking for streamers to get you over the hump and into the big dance. We'll try to touch on all scenarios here, as every league is unique, as is every owner. In this weekly waiver wire series, we provide a curatedcontinue reading...

Week 13 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

We have one more week till the playoffs are here! Well, for most leagues that is. If you need a win in Week 13 and will need to stream a wide receiver or even need someone with a good matchup during the playoffs, let’s look at some of the hot options heading into Week 13. Instead of going in depth on a few players, we are going to quick hit many options this week that youcontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 13 Lightning Round

Welcome back to this quick-hitting waiver overview as we in the fantasy football community prepare for the traditional final week of the regular season. Thus begins the true must-win environment in FF, and we here at RotoBaller are here to help. In order to get you waiver information as fast (and as accurately) as possible, so consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 13. This column is published early every week andcontinue reading...

Dante Pettis (WR, SF) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Let’s welcome San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis with his first appearance in this article for the season. Marquise Goodwin missed Week 12 after a serious family emergency required him to make the trip back home.Since Pierre Garcon also missed the game while dealing with an injury, it was time for Pettis to finally have his breakout performance,continue reading...

Bruce Ellington (WR, DET) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Detroit Lions wide receiver Bruce Ellington is a guy for all of you PPR owners that could use a flex play during the end of season run. The Lions are not a very good football team despite some impressive wins on the season and based on the schedule they have the rest of the year, I see plenty of negative gamecontinue reading...

David Moore (WR, SEA) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The first time I mentioned Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore in the weekly waiver wire series, I had him listed as a touchdown-dependent grab if you were dealing with injuries or bye weeks. Moore showed me a receiver with a decent ceiling but extremely low floor if he didn’t find the end zone. After having four touchdowns in three games, he disappearedcontinue reading...

Trey Quinn (WR, WSH) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Washington Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn was listed as a dark horse candidate last week as well and will make the list again as another PPR play. Touchdown last week against the Cowboys turned an underwhelming performance into more, but he could very well be the healthiest receiver in Washington right now. He will now get an Eagles defense that has trouble stoppingcontinue reading...

Curtis Samuel (WR, CAR) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team  Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel is all over the field and rightly so. He is a playmaker, and we may finally see his role in this offense taking shape.  Samuel has four total touchdowns over his last four games and even though he doesn’t rack up a ton of volume, the Panthers always seems to find a few situations that allowcontinue reading...

Antonio Callaway (WR, CLE) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I made a promise a few weeks back that I wouldn’t write about Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway again this season, but I lied. It’s hard to keep that promise when I see my guy putting together great weeks, and as the number one Antonio Callaway truther, I think I can celebrate those with a brief breakdown in one ofcontinue reading...

Robert Foster (WR, BUF) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We can't ignore Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Foster at this point, can we? In his last two games, Foster has gone for 105 and 94 yards respectively. The latter included a 75-yard bomb for a score against the Jaguars' vaunted secondary. Deep passing plays are not likely to be a weekly occurrence, especially if he continues to operate as the thirdcontinue reading...

John Ross (WR, CIN) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Another week without A.J. Green, another red zone target and touchdown for wide receiver John Ross. You'd think he was a big-bodied possession receiver with the way he's been used lately, averaging 13.8 yards per reception over his last three games but pulling down a short TD in each. If Green returns, that may limit his targets, but Ross hascontinue reading...

Josh Doctson (WR, WSH) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Throwing the first nine games of non-usage out the window, we can see that Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson was targeted a team-high 10 times in his first start with Colt McCoy at quarterback. Unsurprisingly, he produced season highs in receptions (six) and yards (66). The ceiling isn't tremendous, as we know Doctson isn't the most sure-handed receiver, but the Eaglescontinue reading...

Adam Humphries (WR, TB) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries has been a dark horse in this article, then progressed to in the running before falling out with the switch back to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Now we move him to the top tier as a front-runner because that connection with Jameis Winston is real and probably shouldn’t go anywhere anytime soon. Over his lastcontinue reading...

Donte Moncrief (WR, JAC) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief may be in a perfect buy-low situation. After posting two catches on six targets over the last two games, many have given up on the WR1 for the Jags. However, he still has averaged 15.2 yards per catch this season and gets a new look for the 2018 season with Cody Kessler replacingcontinue reading...

Donte Moncrief (WR, JAX) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As unfortunately as things have been going for the Jacksonville Jaguars, 2018 has been a kind campaign to Donte Moncrief. So far this season Moncrief has led the team in targets with 63, and even though he is only third on the roster in receptions behind T.J. Yeldon and Dede Westbrook with 33, he impressively leadscontinue reading...

Zay Jones (WR, BUF) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: How is Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones not owned in more leagues.... is something nobody has said for the past two years. But now it might be time to consider the Barkley-Jones connection (not to be confused with Montana-Rice) is real. Matt Barkley had a nice game in his Bills debut, albeit against the Jets. If he can come closecontinue reading...

John Ross (WR, CIN) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross scored his fourth touchdown of the year, somehow operating as a red zone target again rather than a field stretcher. We still haven't seen the explosive speed at work, as Ross is averaging 13 yards per reception and just over 20 yards per game. The floor is pretty low for Ross but if A.J. Green doesn'tcontinue reading...
