Waiver Wire Week 16: Jalen Hurts, Tony Pollard, Dan Arnold

Hurts may win some fantasy owners a championship in Week 16

For most fantasy leagues, Week 16 is the fantasy championship. This is what you've been waiting all season for, and now it's here. This is the time to make sure you have your handcuff for your running back. If Week 15 taught us anything, it's to be prepared. It seemed like Ezekiel Elliott would be active, and then Sunday morning, fantasy owners found out that he was inactive.

Waiver Wire Week 14: Jalen Hurts, J.D. McKissic, Cole Kmet

After catching 10 passes in Week 13, McKissic should be owned in PPR formats

Congratulations, fantasy owners, if you had made it into the playoffs. If that's the case, you should be taking a long look at your team. Look at who you have picked up and never played. Drop that player for someone that will help you now.

 

Waiver Wire Week 12: Taysom Hill, Gus Edwards, Jordan Reed

Hill should be considered a decent starting QB option while Drew Brees is out

As the fantasy season enters Thanksgiving week, owners need to make sure they know what they are doing with their lineups. Plenty of injuries are keeping key players out, and COVID-19 is playing a role as well, but at least there are no teams on bye this week. Fantasy owners need to stay on top of what is going on in the league to make sure the players on their team are going to be active each week.

Waiver Wire Week 11: Philip Rivers, Sammy Watkins, Logan Thomas

Watkins hasn't played since Week 5, but he should return this Sunday and be a WR2

Fantasy owners may be looking to the waiver wire ahead of Week 11. It's nearing the fantasy playoffs (already?) and teams need to try to have the best players on their roster.

 

Week 11 also resulted in a number of injuries, particularly to quarterbacks, so fantasy owners may be searching for replacements. It's time to seriously look at your roster. If there is a player on there that you aren't starting, drop him for someone better.

 

Waiver Wire Week 10: Jalen Reagor, Curtis Samuel, Jimmy Graham

The Eagles are desperate for pass catchers, is Reagor the answer?

Fantasy owners should still be looking at the waiver wire, as each week brings new players that should be on fantasy teams. Between injuries, bye weeks, and players that are just in a slump, fantasy owners should be scouring the waiver wire to see who they can add.

 

Waiver Wire Week 9: Marvin Jones Jr., Jalen Reagor, Jordan Wilkins

With Kenny Golladay dealing with an injury, Jones should be owned in all leagues

Fantasy owners should be getting ready for Week 9. November is here and the fantasy season is rapidly coming to a close. It's time to make sure you can get a win and start to clinch a playoff spot. If there is a player on your bench that you haven't started yet this season, it's time to re-evaluate why you are hanging on to them.

 

Waiver Wire Week 8: Carlos Hyde, Sterling Shepard, Rashard Higgins

With Chris Carson likely to miss Week 8, Hyde is a decent fill-in

It is now Week 8, and some fantasy owners may be surprised the season has gone on this long. Others may think that it has flown by. Others may be looking at their rosters and feeling frustrated. It's been a tough season in terms of injuries, postponements, and coaches not telling anyone that they are going to "rest" a player in a week that fantasy owners started him (Jerick McKinnon, anyone?). It's always tough to be a fantasy owner, but the key is to accurately assess your roster.

Waiver Wire Week 7: Boston Scott, Henry Ruggs III, Dallas Goedert

With Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz injured, Scott becomes a waiver wire option for Week 7

In Week 6, all games were played as scheduled (or rescheduled in the case of a couple). However, that meant there was another rash of injuries that fantasy owners now need to deal with.

 

The Philadelphia Eagles are beat up on offense, losing Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders for at least one game, maybe more, in addition to everyone else who has missed time. Raheem Mostert is injured (again).

 

Waiver Wire Week 6: Chase Claypool, Alexander Mattison, Andy Dalton

With four touchdowns in one game, fantasy owners need to keep their eye on Claypool

Fantasy owners are likely having a hard time with the NFL season in 2020. For example, instead of the week getting wrapped up on Monday, there's still one game left to be played. The Buffalo-Tennessee game has been up in the air and everyone is hoping it happens on Tuesday night, but that's still in question.

 

Waiver Wire Week 5: Damien Harris, D'Ernest Johnson, Robert Tonyan

Fresh off the IR, Harris rushed for 100 yards on Monday night

The official bye weeks start in Week 5 with Detroit and Green Bay. While fantasy owners cannot account for any other games being moved because of COVID-19, they can at least plan to keep any Lions and Packers on their bench.
