Fantasy Football Waiver Wire by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Danny Amendola (WR, MIA) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Dolphins are coming off a loss against the Lions, missing their starting quarterback and have injuries to Albert Wilson and Devante Parker at wide receiver. The one constant on that team could end up being Danny Amendola. He doesn’t have a 100-yard receiving game and has only one touchdown, but he has been able to staycontinue reading...

Tyrell Williams (WR, LAC) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tyrell Williams now has back-to-back weeks with more than 100 receiving yards and a touchdown. From being the WR3 for the Chargers to the WR2 while outperforming Keenan Allen, Williams is gaining a ton of steam. If you make the move to add him this week, you’ll have to wait as the Chargers will be on a byecontinue reading...

Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

Running backs: can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. It's getting to the point where you almost wish you could start all wide receivers so you don't have to worry about injuries, trades, and duds. This week alone, we saw Carlos Hyde on the bench while he waits to integrate into the Jags' system, Melvin Gordon sidelined at the last minute with an early London startcontinue reading...

Week 8 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

We’re digging deep now. Waivers are as bare as they have been all season. We aren’t looking for difference makers anymore, we are looking for role players. The waiver wire is where you find the weekly play that could offer upside while you fight through bye-weeks or injuries. If we can foreshadow and find a player a week or two early, then you are sitting on fantasy gold. I split this article into a few differentcontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 8 Lightning Round

Week 7 was a particularly chaotic one, with several big names going down with injuries and smaller names stepping up before most of us woke up (thanks, London) all the way through the night. We here at RotoBaller are always looking to get you actionable intel as fast (and as accurately) as possible, so consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 8. This column is published early every week and thencontinue reading...

Adam Humphries (WR, TB) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Due to a highly unfortunate Uber ride, Jameis Winston didn't make a start for Tampa Bay until week four of the 2018 season when his suspension was up. It just so happens that week four is also when Adam Humphries started to put the pedal to the metal after his slow start to the year. While Winston hascontinue reading...

Tre'Quan Smith (WR, NO) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Ted Ginn Jr. on IR, Tre'Quan Smith will come in as the WR2 in this high-powered Saints' offense. Smith was incredible against Washington before New Orleans' BYE, and was fairly effective and against a tough Baltimore team on Sunday. He didn't necessarily deliver big numbers in Week 7, catching three balls for 44 yards, but he wascontinue reading...

Cameron Meredith (WR, NO) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With the news that Saints wide receiver Ted Ginn is headed to the Injured Reserve, Cameron Meredith suddenly gains intrigue. Most are flocking to the buzzy Tre'Quan Smith, but don’t overlook how Meredith has tallied nine targets while Smith has seen five in New Orleans’ last two games. Meredith is working thecontinue reading...

Tre'Quan Smith (WR, NO) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues UPDATE: Ted Ginn was placed on injured reserve on Thursday 10/18. Ginn could return later this season, but he'll have to miss at least eight weeks. He can be safely left to the waiver wire now. ANALYSIS: In his absence, this creates much larger roles for rookie Tre'Quan Smith (two touchdowns in Week 5) and continue reading...

Taylor Gabriel (WR, CHI) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If you watch the RotoRevolution on RotoBaller YouTube, then I have two things to say. Number one, shameless self-promotion because you should open another tab in your browser, head over there and subscribe if you don’t already. Number two, my co-host Jake Hubman and I have been bringing up this name for three weeks now and he is still only 22% owned. Jake made a fantasticcontinue reading...

Christian Kirk (WR, ARI) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: At only 14% owned, I think we need to have a serious conversation about what Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk. We mentioned Kirk last week after catching three passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. He followed that up in Week 6 with six catches for 77 yards. Dare I say Kirk is the new WR1 in Arizona? All thecontinue reading...

Chester Rogers (WR, IND) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of Leagues ANALYSIS: We have been talking about Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Chester Rogers for far too long now. Raise your hand if you said prior to 2018 that Rogers was going to be a name brought up every week for the Colts as a primary receiver. My hand is not up right now if you were wondering. Rogers is one of my favorite streaming optionscontinue reading...

Cole Beasley (WR, DAL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: In a shocking route of the Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley put up the first 100-yard receiving game by a Cowboy and his first since 2015. It's sure to be an outlier in an otherwise unremarkable season. Beasley does present a decent floor in full PPR leagues, however, so don't completely discount this performance. The Dallas offense has figured somecontinue reading...

Chris Godwin (WR, TB) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin has seen his ownership  rising as of Sunday afternoon but he warrants mentioning as he may be available in your league. Jameis Winston showed faith in his second-year receiver, targeting a team-high nine times (tied with DeSean Jackson) in Atlanta. Godwin delivered six catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. With acontinue reading...

Willie Snead (WR, BAL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: John Brown has had much more attention in Baltimore this season and was the popular waiver wire choice earlier in the year. While that was happening, and owners continue to be infatuated with Michael Crabtree, wide receiver Willie Snead is now tied for the lead in receptions for the Ravens. Snead also had 10 targets in thecontinue reading...

Tyrell Williams (WR, LAC) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams did what he does best, hauling in two deep balls for touchdowns on Sunday afternoon with 118 yards on three receptions. While Mike Williams is on everyone's radar and owned in two-thirds of fantasy leagues, Tyrell has now outgained him by 50 yards and they are even in scores on the season. He will continuecontinue reading...

Keke Coutee (WR, HOU) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Houston's receivers had a rough game Sunday against Buffalo. Will Fuller V was held to just two catches as he continues to progress from an injured hamstring, DeAndre Hopkins had just 63 yards on five catches and Keke Coutee finished with three catches for 33 yards. This team will be much more productive than they were Sunday andcontinue reading...

Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

Last week it was the vulture, this week it's the no-names. The phrase "that doesn't help anybody" is well-known by fantasy owners and was uttered repeatedly in Week 7. We saw touchdowns from Marcus Johnson, David Moore, Jaron Brown, Paul Richardson, Ito Smith, Erik Swoope, Chris Herndoncontinue reading...

Week 7 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

You’ll notice that some of the same names tend to make their way into this article for multiple weeks. I try to mix it up as much as possible, but I do feel the need to mention guys multiple times, because if you didn’t grab them when they first appeared in this article, time is running out. Just remember, make the move first on the waiver wire and it could pay huge dividends. I split thiscontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 7 Lightning Round

As a resident of New England, football Sundays and autumn weather just makes for a beautiful combination. Another great combo is RotoBaller’s waiver-wire workforce and winning. We’re always looking to get you the swiftest intel to act on, so consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 7. This column is published early every week and then updated after the MNF game. Each day of the week will also yield othercontinue reading...

Terrelle Pryor (WR, NYJ) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: There always seems to be an aura of reluctance surrounding Terrelle Pryor in regard to how fantasy football managers value him, but that might have to change considering Quincy Enunwa is likely going to be out of commission for a month. Pryor's volume of use has been relatively moderate, with his 22 targets and 14 receptions from continue reading...

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 7

Apologies for not telling you to add fantasy superstars Nick O'Leary, David Moore, and Brock Osweiller last week. Clearly I have failed you as a fantasy football writer. I am not worthy of your page views. I'm speaking sarcastically, of course. Those were just three of the names that make you roll your eyes and ask yourself "why do we play this silly, masochistic game?" Ideally you're still enjoyingcontinue reading...

Geronimo Allison (WR, GB) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 47% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison may be the perfect player to target this week. After missing a Week 6 matchup against San Francisco, Allison's ownership dipped under 50%, a shocking fact considering his usage for the Packers. The 24-year-old  built a rapport with Aaron Rodgers over the offseason, giving good signs that he is going to becontinue reading...

David Moore (WR, SEA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With three touchdowns in the last two games, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore must be taken seriously as a flex option in standard leagues. Sadly, the Seahawks are on bye so he is nothing more than a player to watch for Week 8.

Martavis Bryant (WR, OAK) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Raiders are on bye this coming week and are coming of an ugly, blowout loss in which wide receiver Martavis Bryant saw just two catches for 18 yards. The reason to consider Bryant is based on the news that the Raiders are shopping Amari Cooper. If they find a taker for the talented, yet inconsistent wideout, Bryant may see a lotcontinue reading...

Adam Humphries (WR, TB) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: This is probably a long shot, but we need to keep an eye on Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries in deeper leagues. Since Jameis Winston is under center again, things could change in Tampa Bay. Humphries has had at least 55 receptions and 600 yards the last two seasons. Chris GodwinMike Evanscontinue reading...

Albert Wilson (WR, MIA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson makes a return to being a top waiver pickup after taking a couple of weeks off. Hauling in six catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns will make you a popular name on the waiver wire the following week. Doing that with Brock Osweiler will cause chaos because we all know that Wilson must have somecontinue reading...

Mohamed Sanu (WR, ATL) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 51% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu may only have 22 receptions this season, but has made the most of his opportunities. Sanu has a touchdown reception in three of the last four games, tallying a 100-yard game in the one game that he did not grab a TD. That makes Sanu the 33rd-ranked WR in standard leagues, even if he is the thirdcontinue reading...

Robby Anderson (WR, NYJ) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 55% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is the type of boom or bust player that is frustrating to own at times, but his usage rate shows that now may be the time to buy. On top of his increased role in Sam Darnold's offense, both Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor are nursing injuriescontinue reading...

Paul Richardson (WR, WAS) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Even though the Redskins were beat up on offense against the Panthers on Sunday they were still able to come away with a victory. If running back Chris Thompson and wide receiver Jamison Crowder miss more time, then you want to own some Paul Richardson shares. Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis were the lead “receivers” on Sunday, but Richardsoncontinue reading...

Keke Coutee (WR, HOU) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Last week, I had Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee listed as a dark horse in this article because I wanted to see how Houston would use him with Will Fuller healthy and on the field at the same time. Coutee had a lot of work in Week 4, but Fuller also left with an injury and was questionable all week.continue reading...

Robby Anderson (WR, NYJ) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson finally repaid the faith of his owners. Anderson was quiet for four games, posting eight catches for 108 yards. He surpassed that total in Week 5, exploding for 123 yards and two touchdowns. These days may not become commonplace but it's encouraging to see the Darnold-Anderson connection coming to fruition just as Quincy Enunwa caught nonecontinue reading...

Chris Godwin (WR, TB) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 38% of Leagues ANALYSIS: His ownership is just a bit above the one-third mark, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is still widely available as the Bucs come off a bye week. With no running game to speak of, a gunslinger still at QB, and a high-scoring offense on the other side, Godwin should see plenty of action. We still don't know what his rapportcontinue reading...

Christian Kirk (WR, ARI) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS:Will Josh Rosen be the savior for the Arizona Cardinals offense this season? He certainly could be the savior of wide receiver Christian Kirk and his fantasy value. Kirk was able to haul in his first career touchdown Sunday against the 49ers. Kirk also had more receptions and yards than Larry Fitzgerald as well. This isn’t to say Kirk will take overcontinue reading...

Geronimo Allison (WR, GB) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 46% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Aaron Rodgers has started off the 2018 season ranked eighth in the NFL with 314.4 passing yards-per-contest, and has already thrown ten touchdown passes through the first five games, while the Green Bay ground-attack has been good for just 101.2 rushing yards per game (19th in the NFL) with a lone TD. That means that there is wide-open opportunity in thecontinue reading...

Dede Westbrook (WR, JAX) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 52% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has been nicely bolstered this season by the presence of a few key emergent receivers, and at the forefront of that movement so far has been Dede Westbrook. The Jags passing game has been relatively strong so far in the 2018 campaign with Blake Bortles currently ranking tenth in the NFL with 305 passingcontinue reading...

Keelan Cole (WR, JAX) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 55% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After a particularly emergent year in it's own right of 2017, Keelan Cole has seemingly picked up right where he left off out of the Jacksonville receiving core. While he has had to contend with competition from fellow Jaguars Dede Westbrook and Donte Moncrief, Cole has still managed to hold his own in cumulative production thiscontinue reading...

Mohamed Sanu (WR, ATL) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Leagues ANALYSIS: A quick riser on the waiver wire, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu finds himself in the front runner’s category this week. It may be odd that I have a front runner who also shares snaps with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, but as I have explained several times over the past week, the emergence of Ridley is good forcontinue reading...

Marquez Valdes-Scantling (WR, GB) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Out of Green Bay's trio of rookie receivers, Marquez Valdes-Scantling was the one to see the most action in the absence of Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. Not only did he score his first NFL touchdown in the third quarter of Week 5, he nearly had another but saw it called back by a penalty. MVS saw 10 targets in hiscontinue reading...

Taylor Gabriel (WR, CHI) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: What went unnoticed over the first three weeks of the season was Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel and his increasing target share. From Week 1 to 3, Gabriel's targets went from 5 to 7 to 10. No one paid attention because he hadn't produced more than 34 yards in any of those games, but even as a gadget player he is valuablecontinue reading...

Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

It took five weeks but the vultures are finally starting to come out. We saw it in Detroit, where talented rookie Kerryon Johnson turned 12 carries into 70 yards while LeGarrette Blount turned 12 carries into 22 yards yet cashed in twice on short touchdown scores. Despite the return of Devonta Freeman in Atlanta, it wasn't he or Tevincontinue reading...

Week 6 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

It’s nice to write these articles when guys I have been keeping an eye on start making it to the top of the list. With the uptick in scoring this year, it’s been essential to find guys who don’t just offer a safe floor but offer the opportunity to score at a high clip. The hope is that some of the recommendations in this article will give you a nice ceiling each week. I split thiscontinue reading...

Donte Moncrief (WR, JAX) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN 13% ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief appears to be gaining the trust of quarterback Blake Bortles. Moncrief saw a career-high 15 targets of Bortles' 61 pass attempts in the Jaguars 30-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. However, the two were only able to hook up on six of those throws for 76 yards. 25 of thosecontinue reading...

Equanimeous St. Brown (WR, GB) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Between Geronimo AllisonMarquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous St. Brown, the Green Bay Packers lead the league in fantastical names for wide receivers. Valdes-Scantling might have received the bulk of the attention this week, but St. Brown quietly had a nice game as well. St. Brown finished with three receptions for 89 yardscontinue reading...

David Moore (WR, SEA) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore has seen his snap count increase in every game leading up to Sunday. There was finally production with his enhanced usage, as he jumped out the gate with two touchdowns on just three catches. The Seattle offense is in a state of flux with Jaron Brown and Brandon Marshall fazed out and the running back revolvingcontinue reading...

Curtis Samuel (WR, CAR) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel was finally healthy enough to play on Sunday and he ended up with a touchdown on one of his two receptions. Samuel showed flashes last year before breaking his ankle so,  health permitting, it's fair to assume that he will have a decent role in the offense this year. He will likely be used on jet sweeps and getcontinue reading...

D.J. Moore (WR, CAR) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore has seen his involvement in the offense incrementally increase over the course of the season thus far. He received a season-high in targets on Sunday and should continue to be integrated as the year goes on. He really is not worth too much FAAB right now but could be a great upside stash given his route-running ability andcontinue reading...

Taywan Taylor (WR, TEN) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Rishard Matthews out of the picture, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Taywan Taylor has seen his role increase significantly. His snap percentage had already been climbing over the past few weeks and it's clear that he is carving out a significant role in the offense as their primary slot receiver. He is worth owning PPR leagues at a slight chunk of your budget.continue reading...

Deeper Sleepers Heading Into Week 6

The wildness that is the 2018 NFL season continued in Week 5, gifting us some curious real-life outcomes to go along with the usual fantasy absurdity. We've got the curious case of the Buffalo Bills, the Browns already won their second game, the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles on the ropes, and Amari Cooper has been Amari Cooper-ing all year. It appears that guy should only be started in evencontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 6 Lightning Round

Week 5 is largely in the books and was relatively quiet compared to the first four weeks of NFL action. Of course, there's still plenty of intrigue and stats to be gobbled up on the waiver wire! In the interest of getting you some no-huddle, hurry-up information, consider this our waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 6. This column is published early every week and then updated after the MNF game. Each day ofcontinue reading...
