The Best Waiver Wire Picks
The waiver wire is literally the single most powerful tool you can use to dominate your league. When hitting the waiver wire your goal is simple, replace your slackers with starters. You'll be temped to hold onto your draft picks because of the investment you made. Resist the urge to hold on to dead weight. Each season we see guys rise and fall. Drop the players that are failing and pick up the guys that are rising, it's that simple.
Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4 are the most critical! During the opening weeks you'll see wide receiver battles flesh themselves out, typically at the WR2 position or slot. Running back platoons (RBBC) may change as one runner rises above the rest enough to warrant a starting position on your team. Tight ends that no one saw coming put together several strong games and become solid depth or trade bait. Lastly, quarterbacks and team defenses can be streamed. We publish the best waiver wire picks every week, see below for our most recent picks.

The hits kept on coming in week 11, with some costly injuries taking down high profile running backs. That means opportunities for new players in some cases. There are some very good backups that may have big games on the horizon, but there are also players that were on the bench for a reason. Week […]
The prospects are a bit thin at quarterback and tight end at the moment. Difference makers are still available, but it takes a bit of digging to find the guys that should be on a roster. New injuries and roster moves are opening space, but it can be tough to predict what players will find […]
Wide receiver remains very deep this season, with week 11 seeing big performances from lesser owned commodities.
