A Wealth of Possibilities

Jared Goff is in the pocket getting ready to throw a pass. His strong receiving core is helping him get some points for your fantasy squad.

Has been a tough fantasy football season so far? There is a bright side to some of the crushing losses you have experienced–a prime waiver position that will allow you to turn your season around.

Here are some of the must-adds off  the waiver wire. 

Some RB’s you should consider picking up are: Brian Robinson Jr., Raheem Mostert, Phillip Lindsay, Mike Boone, Mark Ingram II, Latavius Murray, and my favorite– Tyler Allgeier. Allgeier is a great addition considering Cordarrelle Patterson was limited in week 4 with a knee injury and placed on the injured reserve. In his week 4 game, Allgeier had 10 carries, a catch for 20 yards, and ended up scoring double-digit fantasy points even with his limited action.

Some WR’s worth picking up are: Josh Reynolds, Michael Gallup, Corey Davis, Isaiah McKenzie, and my favorite in this group is George Pickens. Pickens had a great preseason, but for the first three weeks we didn’t see him produce the numbers some fantasy owners wanted. However in week 4 he caught for 102 yards, proving he can be a weapon. 

If you are looking for a QB, Kenny Pickett, Geno Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, and my favorite Jared Goff are names to consider. Goff has thrown four passing TD’s in two of his last three games while averaging 281 passing yards. Most importantly, the Lions defense is awful. This means Goff will need to produce offensively if the Lions want to win games. 

Mo Alie-Cox, Tyler Conklin, Will Dissly, and my favorite Hayden Hurst are TE’s that might strengthen your team. Hayden Hurst has put up at least 7.4 PPR points in three out of four games so far this season which is definitely enough to put him as a TE 2 or 1 depending on the league. 

Finally the Eagles defense. I don’t think we need an explanation for this one. The Eagles have scored 52 points and are averaging 13 points per game. That is more points than most people’s first overall pick, Jonathan Taylor, who has 50. 

Take a look at who’s available. The waiver wire might have exactly what your team needs.
