Joe Musgrove (SP, PIT) - Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% of leagues ANALYSIS: It seems right about every time you think you can start trusting Pirates pitcher Joe Musgrove, is right about the time that he gives up about eight runs, as he did in a loss against the Mets on August 4. But Musgrove has been... Read More

Homer Bailey (SP, OAK) - Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: Ok, don't say anything too loudly lest you jinx it but Homer Bailey has been pretty good for about a month now.

Sandy Alcantara (SP, MIA) - Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 37% of leagues ANALYSIS: Only three pitchers in baseball have thrown two shutouts in 2019; Shane Bieber, Lucas Giolito...and Sandy Alcantara of the cellar-dwelling Miami Marlins. With a record of 5-13, it's obviously been a bumpy year for the 24-year-old right-hander and he now has a 3.93 ERA in... Read More

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 25

In one unfortunate week (though suspiciously, not on Friday the 13th), the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs both lost their biggest star in the midst of the NL wildcard race, and are still fending off the Phillies and Mets on razor-thin margins. In losing Christian Yelich and Javier Baez, for their big league squads and... Read More

Chris Thompson (RB, WAS) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: A knee injury is going to cost Derrius Guice some time, and while that injury was thankfully to the non-ACL tear knee, Washington is still likely going to be cautious with the second-year back. Behind him on the depth chart, Washington... Read More

D.J. Chark (WR, JAC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As a rookie, Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark had 14 catches for 174 yards and no touchdowns.

Terry McLaurin (WR, WAS) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Virtually every NFL team has a wide receiver who can be considered fantasy relevant, but things in Washington were such a mess entering this season that no one seemed to have any idea which receiver -- if any -- would be the...

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.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While there's still not much clarity on the Tyreek Hill injury situation, we do know that Hill is set to miss at least some time, leaving the Kansas City Chiefs fairly light at the wide receiver position.

2B and SS Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 24

Wow. Well, if we all learned anything about sports in the past couple of days, it's that we can all be glad that there is far less baggage attached to our top draft picks in fantasy baseball than there is in fantasy football. Even with that in mind, these final three weeks aren't about the... Read More

Dinelson Lamet (SP, SDP) - Week 24 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of leagues ANALYSIS: Coming off of a 10 K performance against the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres pitcher Dinelson Lamet didn't exactly blow the doors off anyone in his last start, losing to the Colorado Rockies 3-2.

Matt Magill (RP, SEA) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle Mariners pitcher Matt Magill has taken over the closing role for the team the past two weeks.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The time may have finally come for the breakout of Texas Rangers outfielder Willie Calhoun, who was at one point one of the most exciting power-hitting prospects in the game.

Josh VanMeter (1B/2B/3B/OF, CIN) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: Josh VanMeter is what some call a boring guy; he provides a little bit of everything when he plays, but nothing outstanding.

Adrian Houser (SP, MIL) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Adrian Houser has been extremely effective since rejoining the Brewers' rotation in late July.

Hanser Alberto (2B/3B, BAL) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: Under-the-radar players often make it to the waiver wire. Looking at his first three seasons as an MLB player, all three with negative WAR production, it was normal that Hanser Alberto was left off of most fantasy rosters. This year, in his first season in... Read More

Mark Canha (1B/OF, OAK) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: At this point in time it feels wrong that someone like Mark Canha keeps being overlooked. In 2019, his fifth MLB season, he's slashing .269/.385/.517, with a .902 OPS, all of those numbers being career-best marks. Adding wood to the fire, he just hit... Read More
