Week 18 Waiver Wire Rankings - Fantasy Football Pickups Include Deshaun Watson, Treylon Burks, Kadarius Toney, KJ Osborn

Deshaun Watson - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, NFL Injury News

Welcome to Week 18 RotoBallers, and another round of waiver wire pickups! We have seen new injuries emerge for fantasy football, and players who may be breaking out. As you consider who to pickup for your rosters, as always we're here to help you sift through it.

Each week our NFL team puts out a complete array of fantasy football waiver wire articles, to compliment our slick new Who Should I Pickup? waiver wire player comparison tool. Our fantasy football waiver wire articles get published on Mondays and Tuesdays each week. However, we have fewer waiver wire articles than usual, as the majority of fantasy football leagues conclude in Week 18, and many of these types of articles aren't significant this week.

We still have our Waiver Wire Express Lighting Round article by Nick Mariano. In addition to that article, we also dig deeper for each position with individual waiver wire articles: running backswide receiverstight endsquarterbacks, and kickers.

Who To Pickup for Fantasy Football Week 18?

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 and bolster your roster for Week 18! Let's get to it.
