Week 17 Waiver Wire Roundup for Fantasy Baseball

For those who are not familiar, our team's fantasy baseball waiver wire articles get published on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays each week.

First up is our two-start pitcher streamers article by lead editor Pierre Camus, and the top hitter streamers and starts article by Justin Dunbar, released late each week to give you a head start on the week ahead.

For you premium subscribers, you get our overall waiver wire article, compliments of Nick Mariano. These will give you a solid overview of the waiver wire options.

RotoBaller's resident points league guru Nick Gaut brings you his weekly points league pitcher pickups and points league hitter pickups. KC Bubba then brings your his deeper waiver wire pickups for all positions, with a slant for NFBC leagues.

In addition to these articles, we also dig deeper for each position with individual waiver wire articles: starting pitcher pickups, outfield pickups, 2B and SS pickups, 1B and 3B pickups, and players to consider dropping. Last but not least, Anthony Aniano gives you two videos a week for his waiver wire hitters video and waiver wire pitchers video.


Who To Pickup for Fantasy Baseball Week 17?

Are you looking for a more direct and structured list of prioritized players to add off the waiver wire?

This article is final piece of the weekly waiver wire pickups series, and its goal is to show you our weekly ranking for the relevant waiver wire pickup options including how to prioritize them for your league (depending on the league size).

So below you will find the overall rankings list, and below that each individual position in priority order. Hopefully this helps you win your waiver wire this week! Let's get to it.
