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%.

Top 3 Tight Ends to Target for Week 2

Brant Tedeschi Sep 11th 12:09 PM EDT.

Week 1 is finally in the books and the Tight End position was a mixed bag for a lot of fantasy teams. Some stars did not show up, while a couple of under the radar players showed they are worth rostering and starting.

Guys like Jared Cook, George Kittle, and Ricky Seals-Jones should be on your radar as potential waiver wire targets at tight end.

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!

How to determine if a fantasy football trade is fair

Brant Tedeschi Aug 14th 3:04 PM EDT.

A fair trade is when both teams essentially win and both get what they want out of the deal. Sometimes it's hard to figure out a fair trade because it is hard to evaluate player worth. That is where we come in to help evaluate the trade using our fantasy football trade analyzer.

This advice of a fair trade can apply to any fantasy sport, such as fantasy basketball or baseball, and not just fantasy football. It can involve any type of player and not just a star like Antonio Brown.
