If you are patrolling the waiver wire this week with tears in your eyes, we know the feeling. Losing your first round draft pick is always painful. Don’t expect to get David Johnson-esque numbers from these options, but the consensus opinion for replacing him seems to be his direct backup, Kerwynn Williams. https://twitter.com/FantasyFools/status/907459830981459974 That said,…… Continue reading Week 2 Pickups: Forgetting David Johnson
Jacob founded Fantasy Football Fools in 2007 as a outlet for all the fantasy football conversations he couldn't have in-person. Since then...well, it's only gotten worse.
Week 10 Pickups: RB Reload, Bet the Sanchize
We hit on a few long-term investments at wide receiver last week. With news breaking and injuries healing up, it’s time to talk about stashing running backs this week, if you can get to them first on the wire. Adrian Peterson plead “no contest” to a lesser charge this week and got one step closer to…… Continue reading Week 10 Pickups: RB Reload, Bet the Sanchize
Week 9 Pickups: Good Moncrief! 4 Wide Receivers to Stash
Week 8 was a fantasy feast and gave us a peek at what a few young receivers could do if given more opportunity. If you need an immediate play, check back on previous waiver wires for suggested pickups. But if you’re looking for a difference maker down the stretch, one of these four might be…… Continue reading Week 9 Pickups: Good Moncrief! 4 Wide Receivers to Stash
Week 8 Pickups: What can Bryce Brown do for you?
Amazingly, it’s another good week for the running back needy, and some of you likely lost your starters this week with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson going down. I would have hoped you’d replace Spiller by now, but I know it’s hard to give up on those preseason plans. I’ll typically assume most previous pickup…… Continue reading Week 8 Pickups: What can Bryce Brown do for you?
Week 7 Pickups: Andre Holmes needs a home on you roster
I’m enjoying riding the Branden Oliver train after his performance in Week 6. While he didn’t do as well as he did in Week 5, he held up well as a feature back with 30 carries. I’ll take that all day until Ryan Mathews returns. Ben Tate, Branden Oliver, and Ronnie Hillman have all proved…… Continue reading Week 7 Pickups: Andre Holmes needs a home on you roster
Week 6 Pickups: Branden Oliver be in your lineup
It’s a good week to get some bench running backs as we had three major injuries to Rashad Jennings, Montee Ball, and Donald Brown, which opened the door for some promising options. Many of my teams are hurting so I’ll be setting plenty of waivers. Here’s where I’m putting my chips this week. Ben Tate…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Branden Oliver be in your lineup
Week 5 Pickups: Asiata told you to pick him up last week
No season-changers emerged this week, but we did finally see more of Matt Asiata with Teddy Bridgewater taking over the reigns for Minnesota. If this offense keeps moving, he could finally be a solid contributor in Adrian Peterson’s absence. I’m going running back heavy in this edition with some options and stashes reaching a “must…… Continue reading Week 5 Pickups: Asiata told you to pick him up last week
Week 4 Pickups: You’re my boy, Alfred Blue
We just can’t catch a break, can we? This week we had another rash of injuries. Those injuries combined with the first bye weeks will make the waiver wires pretty active this week. At least we have a few new stars like our boy Blue. http://youtu.be/pL8WuOqgDtQ Let’s jump right into my list. Alfred Blue Lorenzo…… Continue reading Week 4 Pickups: You’re my boy, Alfred Blue
Week 3 Pickups: We lost a lot of good men out there
We lost of really good men out there. So many good men. http://youtu.be/VYrEQbtV2V4 But here we are in Week 3. Somehow, we have to put the pieces back together. As an owner of Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson, I’m hurting so the RB help on the wire is welcome. Here are my top targets. Ahmad…… Continue reading Week 3 Pickups: We lost a lot of good men out there
Week 1 surprises rarely turn into fantasy studs
The recent track record of Week 1 surprise players isn’t good. How many have played well in Week 1 and gone on to finish as a top-shelf Fantasy option at their position? Over the last two years, the answer is two: Alfred Morris in 2012 and Julius Thomas in 2013. Two! Over two years. Still…… Continue reading Week 1 surprises rarely turn into fantasy studs
