NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 7

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 7

This might be the ugliest week for waivers so far. It makes sense as we hit bye weeks and there are fewer games and less opportunities for someone to pop. This week hit some teams hard with the loss of multiple starters, I know in one league I personally lost Rodgers, Tate, and Sanders. I […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 6

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 6

After a week where there were players to be had everywhere, this week the waiver wire has a lot less to offer. This week’s injuries didn’t lead to obvious replacements like last week’s injuries did. If you really need a plug and play starter you might be out of luck. You may have some options […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 5

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 5

Depending on how you look at week four, it was either really rough or really beneficial. If you lost Dalvin Cook, Ty Montgomery or Chris Carson you are probably hurting at the running back position. Cook and Montgomery were likely cornerstones of your teams as guys drafted around the top 40. While you might not […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 4

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 4

Week three was a bit of a let down in terms of waivers outside of one name. There were very few injuries and performances from players that aren’t owned that actually inspire optimism. No, I am not at all interested in Marcedes Lewis or Geronimo Allison. Others that were good performers for the most part […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 2

Week two provides a little more clarity as we get a second week of sample sizes. A couple of players that were on waiver wires last week are still there, but the price just got a lot higher – in the same way the price has gone down on several others. I think people sometimes […]

Waiver Saviors

Waiver Saviors

After another minor hiatus, I’m back with the latest and most likely final waiver saviors article to try and help you bring home the hardware.  Not to toot my own horn (too late), but hopefully you’ve been listening to the past several columns as many of these recommendations have really shaped up.  Jim Finch also […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 24

Waiver Wire Report: Week 24

Monday begins week 24, leaving one to two weeks remaining depending on your league setting. This also mean there are only two to four teams paying attention in H2H leagues and maybe two or three in roto – minus those few rogue managers who actually play out the entire season, and a big Kudos to […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 1

Early season waivers are different than the middle weeks when bye weeks start to hit hard. Early in the year, all you are looking for is a breakout more often than not. Circumstances are different in deeper leagues with like 14-16 teams. There, finding someone who could be a five catch for 70 yard receiver […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 23

Waiver Wire Report: Week 23

Monday begins week 23 which means all H2H league should be in playoff mode, and those in roto leagues have three more week to catch the leader. The other day I highlighted 10 players you should consider dropping, or at least benching, for the fantasy playoffs. If you are wondering who to drop from your […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 22

Waiver Wire Report: Week 22

This is the best time of the season. First of all it’s Labor Day so happy holiday to all those celebrating, or at least relaxing with a well deserved day off. Labor Day also signifies back to school time in most states, or at least in New Jersey, so no more damn kids playing on […]

Training Camp News Heading Into Week 1

Training Camp News Heading Into Week 1

Football is here again and we are now in the prime of fantasy draft season. While rankings can be found left and right, it is often unclear whether those rankings take into account recent news around the league. Here are the two biggest pieces of news I paid attention to over the past week along […]

More Waiver Help for Injured Studs

More Waiver Help for Injured Studs

I know a lot of you are probably hurting. Quite a few of my teams are banged up right now. One of my playoff teams featured every single one of these guys: Paxton, Wood, Altuve, Santana, Conforto, Cespedes, Rosenthal, Brantley, and Gallo. All of them, along with countless others, have gone down for either a […]

Waiver Wire Report: Week 21

Welcome to week 21 of the waiver wire report. Each week I will dig through the f/a pool to find the best potential free agents on waivers (under 50% ownership). Some are good for a quick boost, others could be good long-term additions, and there will be a few speculative adds thrown in there as […]

Hitters to target down the stretch

Hitters to target down the stretch

Last week I outlined some under-owned pitchers that could help replace your injured studs.  This week we’ll take a look at some hitters that can help carry you down the stretch.  Probably won’t go as deep on the analysis on some of these guys since this is more about striking while the iron is hot. […]

Replacements for Injured Staring Pitchers

Replacements for Injured Staring Pitchers

The trade deadline has passed for most leagues.  Playoffs are on the horizon and may even be starting soon in leagues that try finish up a bit early.  Many teams are struggling with injuries, particularly injuries to their pitching staff.  James Paxton just went onto the DL, the Yankees plated both Sabathia and Tanaka on […]
