Though our in-depth Waiver Wire article will still be dropped on Tuesday mornings, we recognize some leagues have permanent “Free Agents” and allow pick ups immediately. As such, some owners will want names to consider right away, so here’s a “sneak peek” at the names I’ll be breaking down in my Tuesday Waiver Wire piece. I will organize players in tiers, but understand that my “rankings” could change at any point.
Immediate + Long Term Usability
The below options have proven themselves as dependable depth options that see enough weekly volume to be thrown into needy lineups:
Alvin Kamara (RB – NO, 40% owned)
Sterling Shepard (WR – NYG, 34% owned)
Mohamed Sanu (WR – ATL, 32% owned)
Evan Engram (TE – NYG, 38% owned)
If you don’t have an immediate roster hole to plug, the following guys make interesting stashes for the bench, and carry the most upside to develop into long-term assets for the future.
D’Onta Foreman (RB – HOU, 17% owned)
Geronimo Allison (WR – GB, 9% owned)
Josh Doctson (WR – WAS, 6% owned)
Will Fuller (WR – HOU, 3% owned)
Deep Ball Dart Throws
These guys offer week-to-week usability as deep threats who can explode and swing a week at any point, but also carry 0 FP floors. They make sense as bye-week pinches when you’re a severe underdog, but are not recommended weekly plays.
Travis Benjamin (WR – LAC, 5% owned)
Taylor Gabriel (WR – ATL, 20% owned)
Robby Anderson (WR – NYJ, 20% owned)
Week 4 Streamers
Deshaun Watson (QB – HOU, 14% owned)
Cameron Brate (TE – TB, 40% owned)
Vernon Davis (TE – WAS, 8% owned)
