Weekly waiver wire/free agency help

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 17

RB_Marshawn_Lynch_SEA_1

Beast Mode is back! Marshawn Lynch signed with Seattle this last week and he is available in 100% of leagues. Now, don't kid yourself, he is a risky play. If you have a need however, Lynch could be a real interesting pick up.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 17

RB Rex Burkhead NE

As New England cruises into the the postseason, the final game is often a crap shoot for this group. Look for New England to ease off its use of James White, giving Burkhead another opportunity to excel against Miami in the season finale.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week 16

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

With 13 minutes left in the opening half, the Bengals had a first and goal from the five-yard line. Mixon took the ball on three straight handoffs but failed to get in the end zone as the Bengals settled for a field goal. This was the type of game it was for him, as he couldn't really get going.

GRAB BAG: Week 17

RB Gus Edwards BAL DT Geno Atkins CIN

Gus Edwards will see an increase in carries as Ingram will likely see very little work in Week 17, if any. Although, Pittsburgh has been tough against the run, they did give up 89 yards to Devin Singletary in Week 15.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 16

WR Breshad Perriman TBB

The Tampa Bay passing game was white hot against Detroit this past week, with Perriman having a major role in that production. He had a hat trick of three touchdowns, hauling in five passes for 113 yards.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 16

LB Sean Lee DAL

Lee actually missed practice all of last week but played through the injury, notching four tackles, a sack and an interception in a huge win over the Rams. It will be all hands on deck Sunday in Philadelphia in a must-win game..

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 16

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Winston continued to defy the odds and rewrite personal and league records Sunday, navigating what is officially a fractured thumb to eclipse the season-high 456 yards he compiled just a week ago against Indianapolis - becoming the first player in NFL history to throw for more than 450 yards in consecutive games.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 16

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Did you just squeak into your championship game, or do you own Lamar Jackson and have been laughing all the way in? Maybe you are trying to not take last in your league and suffer the league punishment. Either way you need ...

GRAB BAG: Week 16

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

For the majority of leagues, this is what the season all boils down to – one last week. You’ve fought hard, made trades, scoured the waiver wire all season and it is all coming to fruition. Destiny awaits. For some ...

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 15 Injury Fallout

RB Dalvin Cook MIN and LB Adarius Taylor TB

At this point, it’s unclear if Cook’s injury is severe enough to sideline him in Week 16, so you should keep your eyes open for an update from the Vikings. If Cook is unable to play, then rookie Alexander Mattison would normally be the starter, but Mattison’s availability is also up in the air due to an ankle injury that kept him out on Sunday.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 15

TE Noah Fant DEN

Last week I took a huge gamble and stacked Drew Lock and Noah Fant in one of my leagues-- and it paid off nicely. Lock has come out of the gate strong, and certainly gives hope to Broncos' fans heading into 2020...

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week 14

WR Allen Robinson CHI

Allen Robinson has been on fire the past three weeks, with touchdowns now in three consecutive games while averaging 10 targets per game during that span. This is the production we thought we’d be getting all year when drafting him this past summer and it’s better late than never.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 15

RB_DeAndre_Washington_OAK_1

In the absence of Josh Jacobs, it was DeAndre Washington and not Jalen Richard who got the majority of the work last week against Tennessee. Washington is a player who can be picked up and started right away if Jacobs misses time.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 15

RB Nyheim Hines IND

For the second straight game, Donald Payne hit double-digits in tackles, piling up 16 total stops. Getting that kind of production off the waiver wire this late in the season can be both a bacon-saver and a game-changer.

5 Up/5 Down

QB Ryan Tannehill TEN

Since the AFL/NFL merger, only 14 quarterbacks have produced seasons in which they averaged greater than 9 yards per pass attempt on 200 or more throws. Tannehill is very likely to become No. 15.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 15

RB Raheem Mostert SF

San Francisco running back Raheem Mostert is your man. Mostert is still available in 75 percent of leagues and tore up the stats against a very good New Orleans defense this past week.

GRAB BAG: Week 15

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

It is probably the end of the road for Derrius Guice's 2019 campaign after suffering another MCL injury. Peterson will once again take over the large majority of carries and even against a tough Eagles run defens, Peterson's opportunity and skill will make him a fantasy starter.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 14

QB Kirk Cousins MIN

I know everyone is aware of this, but I think it's amazing how much Kirk Cousins turned his season around since being called out by WR Adam Thielen in Week 4. Since being run down by his wideout, Cousins has tossed 20 TDs to just two interceptions. That's amazing...

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week 13

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

Aaron Jones did appear to get into the end-zone on the first play of the fourth quarter as he bounced it outside, however a holding call against the offense would negate the score. He got another chance late in the fourth and was stood up at the 1-yard line.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 14

RB Darwin Thompson KC

The backs for Kansas City are dropping like flies, with Damien Williams and Darrel Williams both dealing with injuries that may affect their availability for this week’s tilt in New England. Darwin Thompson saw his first significant action of the year, and among his 11 carries was a 4-yard play that got him his first touchdown.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 14

LB Sean Lee DAL

Sean Lee has been a lot more than just a cheerleader or a fill-in over the past few weeks — he had 12 tackles (nine solo) in last week’s loss to Buffalo and already has almost twice as many tackles as all of last year.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 14

LB Darron Lee NYJ

Streaming the Jets simply means you are banking on a bad game from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Granted, Fitzpatrick just lit up the Eagles defense last Sunday but that success is not sustainable, especially traveling to frigid New York.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 14

RB Raheem Mostert SF

In San Francisco, Raheem Mostert has been turning some heads. The super quick RB is available in 86% of leagues. I have mentioned him a few weeks in a row now and he still is on most your waiver wires.

GRAB BAG: Week 14

QB_Andy_Dalton_CIN_1

With the Ryan Finley experiment coming to an end, Dalton started Week 13 and led the Bengals to their first win of the season. We should expect Cincinnati to continue to play from behind - which means more passing for Dalton. He's an easier find as he is unrostered in over 90% of leagues.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 13 Injury Fallout

RB Kalen Ballage MIA

Ballage left Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a left leg injury in the second quarter. It appeared to be a non-contact injury, and he had to be taken to the locker room on a cart. He was officially listed as questionable to return, but he did not re-enter the game.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 13

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

I have seen the future of professional football, and it’s Lamar Jackson. Is this really all that of an outrageous statement? After watching Jackson over the past few weeks, it’s obvious that he’ll be the model quarterback for future generations.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 13

QB Sam Darnold NYJ

Darnold’s early season numbers were very inconsistent, but since returning after a four-week absence for illness related reasons, the former USC Trojan has been getting steadily better week by week. He has put himself at the very top of the quarterback streaming list with upcoming games at Cincinnati and at home against Miami.
