The Waiver Wire 10/8 (final edition)

Posted October 8, 2019

  Welcome to the Week Six Waiver Wire!    We’re nearing the midpoint of the fantasy regular season.  Only seven weeks left!  The waiver wire is a little lighter this week, as a lot of the low-hanging fruit has been picked clean over the first five.  I’ve done my best to sort through the pile…

Welcome to Week Five!  And welcome to Rotobahn’s Expanded Waiver Wire! We’re almost a third of the way through the fantasy season and things are still a bit unsettled with all of the quarterback changes around the league. As always, this is a living article.  I will be making additions throughout the day–particularly at the…

The Waiver Wire 9/24 (final version)

Posted September 24, 2019

When I first started thinking about today’s wire, it was early Sunday afternoon.  My thought process was mostly about how to steer fantasy GMs towards filling in the holes that would be left by the first bye week of the season.  The big concern would be Le’Veon Bell and to a lesser extent, the San…

Welcome to Rotobahn’s expanded waiver wire.  If you’ve already read the WEEI version, you have a head start, but the article has already tripled in size since then and it’s still growing. Last week, I commented on how nice it was that the injury bug had not hit in full force.  Yeah, so much for…

The Waiver Wire 9/10 (updated Wednesday)

Posted September 10, 2019

  So how did Week 1 go for y’all?  It was a wild up-and-down ride for yours truly.  I faced Sammy Watkins in way too many leagues.  Such is life.  Thankfully I survived a few of those.  I hope you all came through well. As we talked about in the Rotobahn Draft Plan, Week 1…

Merry Christmas to all! I feel for the people reading this article. No, really. Your commissioner’s decision to have your league’s most important game on the NFL’s least predictable week has left you grasping at some harsh realities.  Will Zeke Elliott play? Will Drew Brees play?  Will any of the Saints important players play? These…

Welcome to Bowl Week!  Yes, we made it. It’s Week 16 and, unless you have a really bad commish, you are playing in your league’s big game. For some unfortunate fantasy souls, next week is your championship week. I’ll be here for you then, but please, please petition your league to stop the madness and…

Welcome to Week Fifteen! So you made the final four. Congratulations. Let’s roll up our sleeves and see if we can find the best assets to trim off of the waiver wire. Remember, any player with a big ceiling that you leave unclaimed is a player your opponent can use to beat you. So be…

Welcome to Week 14, and congrats on still reading the waiver wire. It means you’re still alive and playing for the big prize! Over the last few weeks, we’ve gotten into building depth and stashing upside players. On the Week 12 waiver wire podcast I went through all of the handcuff options, so hopefully you’ve…

Posted November 27, 2018

Welcome to the Week Thirteen Expanded Waiver Wire! It’s gut check time, with many of us playing for playoff spots or better yet, playoff byes. The NFL byes are, thankfully, over, so this week is about setting those rosters up with some plus matchups—just in case we need to go to our bench this week,…
