I've been a fan of sports all my life. Football is always the most exciting time of year, and I am a lifelong Broncos fan. Playing fantasy sports over the last decade has broadened my knowledge to not just my home teams and players, but all teams throughout the league. At the start of any fantasy season, my one goal is total domination!

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Targets Week 7

Lesley Tedeschi Oct 16th 4:22 PM EDT.

Once again another week of football comes to a close, and already we are on to the next! Week seven is here folks and its time to hit the waiver wire and grab a wide receiver or two.

Jermaine Kearse is a great guy to start with. The New York Jets will be looking to target Kearse heavily now that Quincy Enunwa is out with an ankle injury. During Sunday's game against the Colts, Kearse had 94 yards on the day and completed nine out of ten targets. Excellent numbers from a receiver that is owned in 3% of leagues. There is no official time table on when Enunwa will return, but he will not be taking the field this week. Kearse might well be shouldering the entire load this coming week, if you are in need he is a great grab for a flex position.

Lesley Tedeschi Oct 9th 4:45 PM EDT.

Welcome to the week six waiver wire pickups! Week five is in the books and for those with a winning record so far, congrats! If your in need of some depth or just someone to fill in for a bye week here are some guys worth taking a look at this week.

Wide receivers are pretty slim choices this week.

Who Will Replace Jay Ajayi?

Lesley Tedeschi Oct 9th 4:24 PM EDT.

With the news out that Jay Ajayi will miss the rest of the season due to a torn ACL, the Eagles will be looking to replace him. Will they look to their own backfield or possibly trade for Le'Veon Bell?

As it stands right now Bell is scheduled to report back to the Steelers for week eight, and finally take the field for the first time this season.

Waiver Wire Week 5 Pickups

Lesley Tedeschi Oct 2nd 3:13 PM EDT.

Now that week four is wrapped up, we are full steam ahead into week five! By now you know that hitting the waiver wire and grabbing the best available guys is an absolute must! Fantasy football gets harder each and every year, whether its from injuries, suspensions, or just plain bad luck and staying on top of your team is necessary. Here are this week's top waive wire players to target.

Let's start down south with the Tampa Bay Bucs and Jameis Winston. Winston has officially been named the starter for week five and he is an absolute steal at this point! He is owned in 13% of leagues, so if you need a quarterback look no further. Over the years Winston has had some good games and some down right dreadful ones, he shouldn't be used as your number one. If you are dealing with a bye week this week or next, Winston should be a good fill in. He will put the ball in the air enough times with Evans and Jackson out there to haul it in.

Waiver Wire Targets Week 4

Lesley Tedeschi Sep 25th 1:43 PM EDT.

Welcome to the start of bye weeks! Now is the time to snatch some hot players who are available and will be good enough to fill in for a week. The season goes by so quickly and some fantasy teams are falling apart at this point. Week four is here and its time to see what some new guys have to offer.

Let's just get the hottest pickup of the week out of the way, none other than Baker Mayfield. Mayfield took the field on Thursday night and gave the Cleveland Browns their first win in a very, very long time! Baker looked calm and very tuned in from the moment he was on the field. He threw for 201 yards and completed 17 out of 23 passes, not too shabby! The upside to Mayfield is limitless and you should grab him if you have the chance. He is owned in 13% of leagues and was started in 8%, obviously his start percentage will increase now that he has been named the official start for week four.

Lesley Tedeschi Sep 18th 5:44 PM EDT.

Time to hit the waiver wire again before week three starts on Thursday!

Each passing week in football we see the players on our team get beat up, benched, or flourish in their role. Its tough to know who will do what, but if you are striving to make it through the season, pickups are very important. This week we will look at six wide receivers that might not have flashy names, but have potential to help out your team.

Top Wide Receivers to Target for Week 2

Lesley Tedeschi Sep 12th 3:43 PM EDT. Edited 4:02 PM.

Its time to hit the waiver wire folks! The first week of the 2018 football season is in the books and its time to capitalize on the hot players of the week.

Ted Ginn on the New Orleans Saints had a nice start to the season hauling in five catches for 68 yards with a touchdown. Ginn was the third most targeted player on the Saints coming in behind Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. If you are looking to grab a receiver Ginn is a great option. He is owned in 44% of leagues and being started in 33%.

Should You Draft a Suspended Player?

Lesley Tedeschi Aug 20th 5:44 PM EDT.

The National Football League has definitely cracked down on players behaviors over the last few years, and suspensions happen much more often these days. I'm not here to write about what is right or wrong when it comes to people's behavior, but I am here to chime in about drafting a player who is suspended.

When it is time to draft this year there are a few big names on the list who are suspended for the start of the season. Julian Edelman will be serving a four game suspension to open the 2018 season. Edelman is the top wide receiver on the Patriots and just a beast of an athlete. He unfortunately missed the 2017 season after tearing his ACL last August and had zero fantasy value. Edelman is recovering nicely and has shown no signs of slowing down in the preseason. Drafting Edelman in my opinion is a no brainer! If Julian Edelman is available in your draft after the first few rounds pick him up!
