We’re all either 1-0 or 0-1 so don’t you dare let a bad opening salvo diminish your competitive spirit. Things are just getting started. As always, if you are looking...

Welcome to the Week 16 waiver wire! Good times are afoot for those of us still reading waiver wires. It means we're still alive, and it most likely means that this week is for all the marbles. The only exception would be if you play in a league that still uses Week 17 for its big game, which, at...

Welcome to the waiver wire, everybody, and props to all those who just qualified for the postseason. It's Week 14, and in the vast majority of leagues that means half of the teams now are toast. So, while most waiver wires have been picked pretty clean over the last 13 weeks, there will be fewer...

Welcome to the Week 11 waiver wire. This is not a great week to be looking for a quarterback. Luckily, the bye losses at the position are not all that significant, though Matt Ryan and Philip Rivers owners would probably disagree. I've thrown out a few less-than-thrilling quartrback options, just...

It's Election Day, but don't forget to pull the lever tonight in your league's waivers or bidding. There is some legit talent out there. As for my political advice, it is pretty simple. Vote. There are no byes on election day and this is no time to take a knee . No offense to Colin Kaepernick. With...

Welcome to the Week 9 waiver wire. It's looking thin out there, folks. Like in Week 8, we are staring at a week with only 13 NFL games, and with six teams at rest. Bye teams: Bears Bengals Patriots Cardinals Washington Texans I'm sure we have more than a few fantasy GMs reading this article who...

Things are getting real now. We are past the halfway point of the fantasy regular season, and for those of you with three wins or less, it's must-win time … but it's also bye week crunch time. In the para words of Ray Stantz , I put in a little overtime on this waiver wire. This one is more like my...

Welcome to the Week 7 waiver wire. Before we get to this week's options, let's take a second to look at some of the fallout from Week 6, which is significant. There are a lot of nervous fantasy owners out there with Ben Roethlisberger going down . The ripple effects are many, and obviously go...

Welcome to the Week 6 waiver wire. It's not exactly a scintillating week for pickups, but there's some opportunity out there if you know where to look. The bye week losses for Week 6 are not crushing, with only the Vikings and Buccaneers at rest. As usual, I will be posting an expanded version of...

Everybody who read this column the last two weeks should have Jordan Howard by now. If you don't, it's probably too late as he's now owned in 82 percent of leagues, but fear not. I have more options for you to go after this week. The bye weeks finally are upon us with four teams at rest in Week 5...
