Waiver Wire Express - Week 18 Lightning Round

Hello, RotoBallers, and welcome to those of you who are still rocking with us ahead of the regular season's final week. Many leagues wrap up in Week 17 but we don't forget about you who soldier on into the crazy week that approaches! Let's finish strong and bring home the title with the 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.

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.

Featured Promo: Get a $25 deposit bonus AND a full-season NFL Premium Pass on the house by signing up for No House Advantage, exclusive home of peer-to-peer pick'em contests and up to 20X rewards vs. the house. Sign Up Now!
