Waiver Wire Week 11

Waiver Wire Week 11

I alluded to this last week, but waivers get really hard to write and rank this time of the year. A lot of guys are owned, and teams are in such different spots rest of season wise. Marlon Mack does little good for someone who is 4-6 and needing a win, while Damien Williams is […]

Buy low/sell high

Buy low/sell high

This week is the last week of byes and where depth should no longer matter. There are very little fantasy ramifications for this week as well. With only the Colts, 49ers, Jets, and Panthers on bye, no team is really going to be devastated unless it is a super deep league. I have been saying […]

Mid-season Dynasty Waiver Targets

Mid-season Dynasty Waiver Targets

Before the season I wrote an article about some deep waiver wire targets to help turnover the bottom of your roster with high upside fliers. A few of the names (Kyle Jusczyk and Nathan Peterman) have done little to reward their owners and have been likely dropped in most leagues. A few players, however, have […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 5

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 5

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Jonathan Schoop – He had nice sleeper value entering 2016 and produced well, raising his profile (and price) for 2017. Now he’s fully broken out and will cost a lot for 2018, whether redraft […]

NFL Waiver Wire Week 10

NFL Waiver Wire Week 10

If you are ok with your starting lineup for the most part this is a week for you to let others use their money and you pick up some handcuffs or high upside players cheap. If you need a win or some upside this is where you shoot your shot and blow what you have […]

Buy low/sell high: Time for a playoff run

Buy low/sell high: Time for a playoff run

At this point in the season many of us know what our teams are. You are in the playoffs and going for a bye, on the cusp of the playoffs, or out of it completely. If you are going for a bye I think you really need to prioritize getting the bye over building a […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 4

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 4

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Justin Upton – How many years have we been waiting for Upton to reach his full potential? It seems that the days of dreaming about a .290, 40 HR season are over, but 2017 […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 9

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 9

This week there are some interesting options, that is if they are still available. Unfortunately, in many leagues, those interesting options such as Collins, JuJu, and Mack are already owned. If that’s the case for your league, there are few  players of interest on the wire. I would try to add Vernon Davis even if […]

Buy Low/Sell High: Byes aren’t over

Buy Low/Sell High: Byes aren’t over

It is weird to even think, but we are now about two-thirds of the way through the fantasy regular season if you play through week 13. If you are able to avoid the killer bye week part two without too much damage it might be time to prepare that bench for the stretch run. That […]

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 8

NFL Waiver Wire Report: Week 8

Waivers this week are much different than in weeks past because of how many people need a Right Now starting option. Typically it feels like we are looking for future starters or just potential for future weeks. This week you might be grabbing guys like Kenny Golladay instead of taking the flier on Corey Davis. […]

Buy Low Sell High: “Buy” Weeks

Buy Low Sell High: “Buy” Weeks

Buy weeks  for the next two weeks are hitting fantasy owners hard because six teams are on a bye during each of the next two weeks. These are the weeks where trades seem to fly around left and right because teams need to fill bye week holes on their rosters. I preached it over and […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 3

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 3

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Whit Merrifield – He flashed some speed last year, but no one would have penciled him for a full season entering 2017, especially after Mondesi was named the starter. However, those who grabbed Merrifield […]

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 […]

Buy Low Sell High: Another Star Goes Down

Buy Low Sell High: Another Star Goes Down

The NFL can be brutal sometimes. We again lost the privilege of watching one of the best players in the world play when Rodgers was likely lost for the season with a broken collarbone. This year you could argue the top QB (Rodgers), RB (Johnson), WR (Beckham), defensive player (Watt) all are on the IR. […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 2

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 2

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Dee Gordon – Did you gamble yet again on Billy Hamilton with the hope that he’d reach crazy stolen base totals? Entering 2017, I was targeting Gordon for speed, and it was the much […]

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 […]

Buy Low Sell High: Another injury week

Buy Low Sell High: Another injury week

This was another brutal fantasy week. Four fantasy friendly offenses were on bye and more fantasy stars went down with injury. I think panic will set in from teams that had low scores this week and are sitting at 2-3 or worse. With more bye weeks coming you can always go out and target those […]

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 1

Fantasy Stock Watch: Keeper Edition 1

The offseason is around the corner, so if you have questions about a player’s keeper value, ask for a stock tip! Jose Ramirez – Did you see this coming? I’ll answer for you: no, you didn’t. I certainly liked Ramirez as a great value entering 2017, but I never would have pegged him for 25+ […]

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 […]

Buy low/sell high: Bye weeks

Buy low/sell high: Bye weeks

I tried to find buy lows and sell highs this week and I struggled a lot more than I expected to. Just like every other week there will be someone on Tuesday that I realize should have made the cut here. But this week, most of the high performers felt like good options to keep, […]
