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.
First check for: Alvin Kamara (RB – NO, 67% owned) Aaron Jones (RB – GB, 57% owned), Javorious Allen (58% owned), Andre Ellington (RB – ARI, 56% owned, Devin Funchess (WR – CAR, 64%)
Potential Season-Long Value:
Alex Collins (RB – BAL, 41% owned)
Marlon Mack (RB – IND, 8% owned)
Matt Breida (RB – SF, 7% owned)
Austin Seferian – Jenkins (TE – NYJ, 28% owned)
Wayne Gallman (RB – NYG, 39% owned) and Orleans Darkwa (RB – NYG, 3% owned)
Mike Williams (WR – LAC, 8% owned)
No Week 5 stats, but is a high-end talent set to return in Week 6 into a pass-heavy attack. Great add for owners in good shape, who don’t need immediate bench starters & want some WR upside on their benches.
Mike Wallace (WR – BAL, 33% owned)
JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR – PIT, 5% owned)
Nelson Agholor (WR – PHI, 31% owned)
Marquise Goodwin (WR – SF, 2% owned)
Ed Dickson (TE – CAR, 5% owned)
Week 6 Streamers
Jacoby Brissett (QB – IND, 12% owned) @ TEN
Elijah McGuire (RB – NYJ, 16% owned) if Bilal Powell and Matt Forte are out
George Kittle (TE – SF, 1% owned) @ WAS
Ryan Griffin (TE – HOU, 6% owned) vs. CLE
No noteworthy Week 5 Stats, but gets the juiciest possible matchup versus
AJ Derby (TE – DEN, 1% owned)
Ricardo Louis (WR – CLE, 1% owned) @ HOU
Atlanta Def (22% owned) vs. Miami
The following RBs would approach RB1 status if forced into a starting role at some point in 2017. Bench depth is hard to come by with Bye Weeks now approaching, but if you have trash to cut, these guys are always worth speculative adds each week.
Charcandrick West (RB – KC, 6% owned)
Alfred Morris (RB – DAL, 8% owned)
Chris Ivory (RB – JAX, 3% owned)
James Conner (RB – PIT, 5% owned)
This is just a tiny sneak peak of our much longer Waiver Wire preview, coming Tuesday morning! For more in-depth breakdowns, including FAAB recommendations, long-term ceilings, and immediate usability, check-in Tuesday mornings.
