The Wide Receivers Show- 7.27.17

For the next few weeks we will go position by position to talk about strategies for drafting each position, which players we are avoiding and who we think you should target. Last week we dove in and talked about the quarterbacks and this week we will be talking about the guys who make the quarterbacks look good. Well a lot of guys make the quarterbacks look good, but we are talking about those flashy wide receivers! In this week’s episode, Brandon’s love for the value of Rams players continues with a shout out to Cooper Kupp, a starting WR1 who has no ADP; Ashley can’t fathom why Donte Moncrief has a higher ADP than guys who finished in the top 25 last year and consistently are in the top 25 year in and year out; and Courtney explains why she is not on the hype train for Brandon Marshall who you have to take in the 5th...

Wide Receivers Preseason Show- 7.22.16

Now that we have discussed the quarterback position, it is time we breakdown the ever important wide receiver position. The wide receiver position is deep but also very reliant on their quarterback so you have to make sure that you have a deep portfolio when it comes to this position. We talk a lot about how the wide receiver 2 position needs their wide receiver 1 counterparts to operate properly and to truly garner you the points that you need and we tackle the questions that have been thrown around a lot in terms of whether you should target guys like Demaryius Thomas, Dez Bryant and other potentially former big hitters. This is a complicated crew so let’s dive...

Week 17 Wide Receivers Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   Week 17. It’s finally … over? Sadly, the NFL regular season is approaching its end. It’s at this point each season we’re painfully reminded just how short the football calendar is. For most owners, the fantasy season ends Monday night with the Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos putting a cap on Week 16. But there are some leagues that continue into Week 17, and obviously daily fantasy will still be going strong. With that in mind, it’s always important to consider any valuable waiver wire pickups. Below, Andrew lists a handful of receivers to consider adding to your roster or inserting in DFS lineups. Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Targets Markus Wheaton - WR, PIT - 49% owned on Fleaflicker Wheaton, like the rest of the Steelers’ passing offense, was disappointing in Sunday’s road loss to Baltimore. He finished with 41 yards on just three receptions. This snapped a four-game stretch where Wheaton had at least 65 yards or a touchdown in each of them. The Steelers conclude the regular season on the road against Cleveland, offering Wheaton and company a chance to redeem themselves. The Browns just gave up a pair of touchdowns through the air to Kansas City’s Alex Smith, and still rank just 22nd in pass defense, allowing 253 yards per game. Pittsburgh desperately needs a win to keep its wild-card hopes alive, so expect...

Week 16 Wide Receivers Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller It’s Week 16; do you know where your fantasy football team is? If it’s still playing games that means something, congratulations! You’re among the chosen few still alive. Most leagues have their championship matchups in Week 16, but some wait until Week 17. Either way, the games are kind of important at this point. It should go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway — if you’re still playing, you did something right, so there’s no reason to crazy with lineup changes. Still, Week 15 saw A.J. Green, Danny Amendola, Alshon Jeffery and Ted Ginn Jr. all suffer injuries of varying degrees, so now is not the time to get lazy. Andrew thinks, if you can make a savvy waiver pickup, it could mean the difference between a fantasy league title and an offseason fraught with second-guessing. Championship Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Targets Kamar Aiken - WR, BAL - 39% owned on Fleaflicker Few receivers have become as consistent on a week-to-week basis as Aiken. It’s true, we swear! Consider this: Aiken has at least five receptions in seven straight games, and at least 50 yards in six of those games. He’s coming off his best outing of the season, an eight-catch, 128-yard game in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. If you can still scoop Aiken up, particularly in PPR leagues, do it this week....

Week 15 Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   It’s not normally in our nature here at RotoBaller to toot our own horn, but after watching Sunday’s games unfold, well … beep, beep. In this very same article space last week, we highlighted Carolina’s Ted Ginn Jr., Seattle’s Tyler Lockett and Cleveland’s Brian Hartline as low-owned wide receivers to target on the waiver wire. All three topped 100 yards, and Ginn and Lockett both scored a pair of touchdowns. In fact, Ginn and Lockett were two of the three highest-scoring wideouts of Week 14 (entering Monday night’s game), along with Doug Baldwin, who topped this list two weeks ago. No, this isn’t an obnoxious brag session, but rather an opportunity to once again stress that great performances can be found on the waiver wire each and every week. And unless your league freezes roster moves for the playoffs, there’s no reason you should diverge from this approach. Many fantasy owners’ seasons are still alive because of Ginn and Lockett. Some of the wide receivers listed below could provide a similar boost in Week 15. Playoff Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Targets Willie Snead - WR, NO - 38% owned on Fleaflicker The fleet-footed Saints rookie missed last weekend’s shootout loss to the Panthers with a calf injury, but returned with a vengeance in Week 14, shredding Tampa Bay for 122 yards on seven catches. Snead has...
