Waiver Wire Express - Week 18 Lightning Round Including Tyler Allgeier, Jarrett Stidham, Chase Edmonds, Tyquan Thornton

Tyler Allgeier - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, Waiver Wire Pickups

Hello and welcome to those of you still in the fight heading into the last week of the regular season. While many leagues elect to end before this, we salute you who open your hearts to the chaos. Cross the finish line strong by leaning on RotoBaller for updates on injuries and team motivations as we bring you an initial waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 18.

This column is published early every week and then updated on a daily basis. Each day of the week will also yield more in-depth waiver wire analysis for all positions to complement our free new Who Should I Pickup for Fantasy Football? waiver wire player comparison tool.

Waiver pickups are listed in priority order (in a vacuum) and broken down by position. Players must be rostered in roughly less than 60% of Yahoo leagues and therefore will range from shallow options in standard leagues to deep options in PPR formats.

Editor's Note: Our incredible team of writers won two writing awards and received 12 award nominations by the Fantasy Sports Writers Association. A big congrats to our very own Byron Lindeque (Golf) and Jordan McAbee (NASCAR) for both winning Writer Of The Year awards! Be sure to follow RotoBaller's analysis and advice all year long, and win more. Win More With RotoBaller!
