Home of the infamous Fantasy Assistant.


Deciding who to pick up or drop in your fantasy league can be a daunting task. The Fantasy Assistant offers a brand new way to help decide who to pick up. Our Waiver Research tool combines player trends with fantasy performance.

The Waiver Research tool is offered for all major fantasy sports, including fantasy football, baseball, basketball, and hockey.

Our tool offers various ways to analyze the waiver pool in your league. You can break things down by a specific timeframe of days or weeks. You can also break things down by specific positions.

A key aspect of the Waiver Research tool is the F+ rating, shown in green. The F+ rating combines fantasy performance with player trends to help you decide who to pick up. The higher the rating, the better the pickup.

You’ll notice that player’s you own are also shown in the mix and are highlighted in yellow. It is critically important to show where your player’s performance stacks up against the waiver pool. We make it easy to compare your player’s performances across shorter and longer timeframes to see if a free agent may be worth the pickup.

The icons next to each player name provide links to the fantasy league player page and an availability breakdown of which league he is owned in.

Finally, we also provide each player’s OWN and START ratings which are shown as two orange graphs. When deciding who to pick up, it is very important to take note of these percentages. We guarantee by using our Waiver Research tool that your research time will be cut down drastically.

Go ahead and take the plunge with the Fantasy Assistant. If you aren’t a member yet, then SIGN UP now.
