Week 16 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Kirby Lee / USA TODAY Sports Heading into Super Bowl showdowns for many fantasy leagues it's probably not a good time to say this is the weakest week for waiver options throughout the entire season, but that's exactly what we have. Outside of an opportunity opening up in San Diego because of anther collarbone injury to Ryan Mathews, there's really nothing to discuss at running back if this is your ...

Week 15 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Andrew Weber / USA TODAY Sports While Nick Foles had a big game against the Buccaneers, I won't officially recommend a quarterback off the waiver wire this week. Foles would likely be the top option to pickup at his position but I'm sure most of you left in the playoffs already have a respectable option at quarterback. Week 15 Standard Rankings – QB | RB | WR | TE | K | D | Follow us on Twitter: @ ...

Week 14 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Jeff Hanisch / USA TODAY Sports At this point in the season any running back help is a good thing. When you have a chance to pickup a running back that could see a feature back role, it's even more important to give them a look. Consider Alex Green of the Packers and Montell Owens of the Jaguars as such options this week. Week 14 Standard Rankings – QB | RB | WR | TE | Flex | K | D | Follow us on ...

Week 13 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Kim Klement / US PRESSWIRE After the obvious pickups like Colin Kaepernick and Bryce Brown fantasy owners may have to do a little guess work as to which players are worth stashing as potential breakout options. While Jacquizz Rodgers plays on Thursday night this week, stash him at this point as it appears Michael Turner is starting to slow down, and the coaching staff is giving their second-year t ...

Week 12 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Kyle Terada / US PRESSWIRE Until Colin Kaepernick's Monday night performance it had been awhile since we've seen a quarterback breakout with promise to provide start-worthy production for fantasy owners. While Kaepernick has a matchup that suggests he should be a top twelve option this week in New Orleans, we still have to findout if Alex Smith will his starting job, upon gaining clearance (if tha ...

Week 11 – Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Kim Klement / US PRESSWIRE One bye week left to plow through and I'm sure we're all happy about that. Look to New Orleans ground game for some help this week as they take on the Raiders. For those of you looking for some help at receiver I have a few AFC West big play receivers we need to target, if they are still around in your league.

Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Kirby Lee / US PRESSWIRE With Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson suffering injuries last week, the Raiders will be forced to go with the passing game to win. While some will target Taiwan Jones as an option off the waiver wire, full back Marcel Reece should be the first option to target off the waiver wire in the Raiders backfield.

Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Vincent Pugliese / US PRESSWIRE This has to be one of the lighter weeks for waiver wire pickups I've seen in my four years of blogging about fantasy football. I won't list a quarterback below but if Josh Freeman is still available, he would of course be the top option at his position to pickup. Ryan Tannehill is a decent option as well, but he has an injury so we may see Matt Moore start after a r ...

Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

Photo By: Brett Davis / US PRESSWIRE It seems around this time of the season we start to see running backs emerge off the waiver wire to contribute to fantasy lineups regularly. While Shane Vereen, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Jonathan Dwyer all had productive games last week, we need to target Rashad Jennings as the first running back to pickup. Week 8 Standard Rankings – QB | RB | WR | TE | Flex | K | D | W ...
