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   Zach hopes you made it through your first playoff matchup or advanced into the playoffs in Week 14! Unfortunately the QB streams were pretty disappointing. Tyrod Taylor delivered a decent game that meets our standards but it was still underwhelming given the matchup. In a huge surprise, Jameis Winston totally flopped on what should have been a golden matchup. Lastly, Brian Hoyer was terrible on Sunday night against the Patriots. In deeper leagues and 2QB Leagues, Hoyer may have killed playoff chances. If you survived, it’s time to move on and look towards the next stream. An obvious mention that I felt didn’t need it’s own writeup: Andrew Luck has a good chance to play this week. If he is unowned, run out and scoop him up! For this article I will look at two QBs owned in 50% or less of Fleaflicker leagues and another QB owned in 25% or less to account for the QB scarcity in 2QB leagues. The waiver wire is always thinner this time of the year but there is always a good stream if you look hard enough! Standard League QB Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 15 Alex Smith (KC) @ Ravens OWNED IN: 48% of Fleaflicker leagues I recommend Smith about every other week. Last week I shied away and he didn’t meet my threshold of 15 points, so I’ll...

Week 14 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 here. Finally. No, not Star Wars: The Force Awakens, nor Christmas, though both are inching closer. The fantasy football postseason is finally here! If you play in season-long redraft leagues, this is what you’ve been working toward all season. The standard format generally features a 13-week regular season, followed by a three- or four-week playoff bracket ending after Week 16 or 17. It’s win-or-go-home time. Well, technically, it’s win-or-go-to-the-consolation-bracket time, but you get the point. If you’ve qualified for the playoffs in your league, you’re most likely not looking to make radical roster changes at this point, but a wise owner knows they can never pass up an opportunity to improve their team. Perhaps some of the wide receivers listed below can help you win a fantasy title this season. Andrew has you covered. Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Targets Ted Ginn Jr. - WR, CAR - 32% owned on Fleaflicker Well, well, well, here’s a familiar face. Just when you think it’s safe to give up on Ginn, the veteran pulls you back in. A week after failing to garner even a single target in Carolina’s Thanksgiving rout of the Dallas Cowboys, Ginn torched the New Orleans Saints for 80 yards and two touchdowns on five catches. Ginn is never going to be consistent, but the combination of his speed and the potency of a Cam...

Week 14 Running Back 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 Each week, Jake’s article will aim to highlight running backs that you should consider targeting on your league’s waiver wire. I’ve split these players up into three tiers from most desirable to most desperate. Additionally, I’ve included players at the bottom of this list that I would be comfortable cutting as I don’t see them contributing in a major way this season. Cream of the Crop Running Backs for Week 14 Waiver Wire These are running backs that I would add no matter what if they are available on your waiver wire. These players have a chance to be starters and weekly contributors to their NFL teams: James White (RB, NE) - 36% owned on Fleaflicker I wrote last week about how I liked Brandon Bolden or James White, but I just didn’t know which one. Well, while I do believe Bill Belichick will play the matchups and game situation will dictate who plays, I also see great opportunity here for White who set himself apart during Week 13. As far as game situation goes, I think it’s clear the Pats want to throw the ball and without their top two weapons in Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, White may be the top option in the passing game. Week 13 brought White 13 targets, 10 of which he caught for a total of 115 yards and a touchdown...
