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 Week 11 Pickups: Scraping the bottom of the barrel
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
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?
There’s a lot to like about Le’Veon Bell right now, especially with what he’s done in difficult matchups thus far. Keepers has the details. http://youtu.be/7L7TTG3vQS0 The Colts D/ST looks good this week against the woeful Houston Texans, still starting rookie Case Keenum. While Keenum has been okay thus far, the Texans, especially if they are…… Continue reading Week 9 Starts and Sits: Lovin’ Le’Veon
We’re late with our pickups this week. I’m on a bit of a vacation, and travel interfered. But that said, there isn’t and/or wasn’t much to get excited about this week on the waiver wire. Josh Gordon is the darling of Week 3, but I have to assume he’s been stashed on someone’s bench since…… Continue reading Week 4 Pickups: Belated Bilal
Yes, you’ve heard. The Cleveland Browns have traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. When I first heard the news, I thought it was a mistake, but it seems the Browns are serious about wanting to be terrible this season. The fallout for fantasy owners is pretty obvious. The Browns now become a less threatening…… Continue reading Trent Richardson is an Indianapolis Colt
I’ve coined a new fantasy football term this season: “getting Shonn Greened.” Sadly, it’s to describe the miserable performance of my own fantasy team. I drafted well, according to most rankings, guides, and general opinion, but my team manages, time and time again, to play down to my opponent. They underwhelm when everyone expects them…… Continue reading Week 9 Pickups coming up Cecil Shorts
Shonn Greene. SHONN “Couldn’t get 5 yards if you spotted him 10” GREENE. When it comes to fantasy football, Shonn Greene is a ruiner. When you hand him the ball, he ruins any chance for a first down. But when you hand him the ball against the Colts, he ruins my week. Greene did, of…… Continue reading Felix Jones-ing for Week 7 Pickups
