    Week 2 Pickups: Spend not, want not

    by  • September 11, 2013 • Waiver Wire • 1 Comment

    Let me preface this pickups post by noting that no one has jumped out a must add in Week 1. We had some very impressive performances, some disappointing ones, and a crazy Monday night, but most of the explosive pickups like tight ends Jordan Cameron and Jared Cook were drafted. And those leagues that...

    Here’s Ronnie: Week 12 Pickups and Jaguars

    by  • November 21, 2012 • Waiver Wire • 1 Comment

    In Week 12, we find ourselves with a good supply of new faces. Injuries to LeSean McCoy, Willis McGahee, and Rob Gronkowski have not only opened doors but will also be sending several fantasy owners in every league scrounging to the wire.

    It’s horrible to watch your stud running back go down with an injury. It’s especially horrible when you don’t own his backup. But it’s incredibly joyful for all of us surfing the waiver wire. After DeMarco Murray went down last week and opened the door for two potential running back pickups Felix Jones and...

    Felix Jones signing autographs

    Shonn Greene. SHONN “Couldn’t get 5 yards if you spotted him 10″ GREENE. When it comes to fantasy football, Shonn Greene is a ruiner. When you hand him the ball, he ruins any chance for a first down. But when you hand him the ball against the Colts, he ruins my week. Greene did,...
