After one of the most active trade deadlines in recent memory, the waiver wire has a few new options this week. Did you keep up with all the transactions? https://twitter.com/FantasyFools/status/925361973189136384 Kelvin Benjamin is now a Buffalo Bill. Jay Ajayi is an Eagle. And Jimmy Garoppolo is now the soon-to-be starter in San Francisco. But, most…… Continue reading Week 9 Pickups: Trades on Trades on Trades
There’s not a lot to get excited about on this week’s waiver wire. We find ourselves choosing between a lot of options that are less than likely to pan out for more than a few games. Those seeking running back help can look first to Oakland where Marshawn Lynch should sit out Week 8 for…… Continue reading Week 8 Pickups: Ghouls, Goblins, and Ghostly Running Back Streamers
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. Before the season, a team with both Aaron Rodgers and David Johnson seemed like a juggernaut. Now, that owner would be looking to save their season. It’s late in…… Continue reading Week 7 Pickups: Replacing Aaron Rodgers
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. Though Latavius Murray…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Adrian Peterson is for the birds
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…… Continue reading Week 3 Pickups: Carson Carson Carson Carson Carson Chameleon
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
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
The drug vote saga drags on, leaving the suspensions for Josh Gordon and Wes Welker up in the air. Is it worth stashing Gordon at this point if he’s still out there? Probably. I’m still concerned about how much of Gordon’s suspension will actually be reduced, but his abilities as a top-5 fantasy football receiver when he takes the field…… Continue reading Week 2 Waiver Wire: Can Josh Gordon get a vote?
So Tom Brady is terrible, and Jake Locker is good? Is this really happening? This Week 1 had quite a few surprises, including phenom performances from Julius Thomas and a not-quite-done-yet Marshawn Lynch. I was pretty pleased with Michael Floyd, even if he didn’t get me a win last night playing against his own QB, Carson…… Continue reading Tuesday Morning Hangover: Is this fun yet? Julius Thomas just wins
Corny title. Check. It’s never fun when you lose your stud quarterback — or any stud for that matter — this close to the playoffs. It hurts. But those unfortunate enough to lose Aaron Rodgers to injury can take solace in the wealth of quarterback options that have emerged to take his place. If you…… Continue reading Week 10 Fantasy Football Pickups: Replace Your Quarterback? Rodgers That.
