Most people just recently finished up drafting their fantasy teams for the year, so a waiver wire column may seem counterintuitive. If we’re being honest though, most of us made a mistake or two in the draft process. There is no better time to fix that, than before the season starts. Right now there are […]
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.

Week 7 of AAF football is upon us. With this comes Johnny Footballs return to our televisions! It’s getting harder and harder to find any standout wire picks that can really help a season. Last week we struck out on Pirce and Saxton. Mullaney, on the other hand, had 6 catches on 7 targets for […]
Welcome back to Week 6. Another week, another QB benching, another opportunity. At this point in the season, my personal team is 4-2 mostly because of who I’ve managed to find on waivers. Grabbing a contributing player or two can make a huge difference in a league with so much uncertainty. Last week I advised […]
