Waiver Wire

Last night a friend of mine asked me for waiver advice. He was frantic, claiming he was screwed and desperate because he has three players on bye this week.

Last week was a fantasy mess with Darren Sproles’ surprise broken hand, important byes and game-time decisions galore. While there is not the obvious golden pickup like the Chargers defense of last week (this week’s Chiefs opponent is the heavily-owned Steelers), here are some options to get your roster healthy. As always, all waiver recommendati...

That was until some major injuries popped up forcing playoff-bound owners to put aside the packing and shift to some waiver wiring. Here are fantasy football’s top trimmings for the week.
