It’s truly getting slim on the waiver wire at this stage in the season. Barring major injury, the Zeke suspension might be the last significant shift in player value. You should still be stashing to prepare for your playoff run, but the excitement may be coming to an end in the weekly waiver wire search. Continue reading
It’s becoming ever harder to field a quarterback with injuries plaguing the position up and down the fantasy ranks. With that in mind, we’ll start by noting that Josh McCown and Ryan Fitzpatrick are both viable options, especially this week as they face off. Continue reading
No one likes to see a top quarterback injured, especially not the consensus No. 1 fantasy quarterback. Unfortunately, we find ourselves in that position this week. Continue reading
This week’s waiver wire is a great reminder that, if your roster needed help, it might have been better to make moves last week. Choices are limited if you didn’t stash, but, if your league is slow to adapt, perhaps you’ll find some of last week’s gems or this week’s leftovers available. Continue reading
Injuries once again bring a new slate to the waiver wire rankings this week.
Top of the list is Latavius Murray who expects to see the majority of early down work for the Minnesota Vikings without Dalvin Cook. A sneaky pickup for those not willing to go big in FAAB bidding for Murray or who aren’t highly ranked in the waiver order this week is Jerick McKinnon. Continue reading

Week 2 wasn’t quite as exciting for pickup hunting as Week 1, but, with two weeks down, we have a little more clarity on how valuable these free agents could be for your team this season. Looking back on last week’s list, Javorius “Buck” Allen appears to be the top of the class. His role in Baltimore has expanded with the injury to Danny Woodhead. With Terrance West suffering through a soft tissue injury, the Ravens could lean on him even more in Week 3.
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. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
