Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Keeper/Dynasty

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. As most leagues kick off their playoffs starting in Week 14, this is one of my favorite weeks to write this column. This is where I annually look at cheap keepers or dynasty trade targets. Let’s face it, if you are in the playoffs, hopefully, you don’t need any Dumpster Dives specials … unless you were riding Dalvin Cook and didn’t handcuff him with Alexander Mattison. That being said, I also widen the birth a bit. Instead of highlighting players rostered…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 13

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. I just want to take a quick moment to give thanks this week. In my time trying to break into the fantasy industry, certain individuals have reached out and taken a chance on me multiple times and I wouldn’t be writing this column for RotoViz were it not for them. The very first person, and connoisseur of all things “Road House” Sal Stefanile has reached out on a limb on my behalf more often than I could ever have imagined. He…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 12

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. Thanksgiving is coming up. Christmas shopping and travel plans are being made. Fantasy playoffs are just over the horizon. There is a lot of … well just plain life going on. But fear not. The team at RotoViz is going to do the hard work for you. Including this week’s Dumpster Dives. It’s not easy finding value this deep in the waiver wire. Which is why I’ve dug around for you to find some solid picks for all of you deep…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 11

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. Did you survive bye-pocalypse with your playoff hopes intact? Now the waiver wire can start to become a little less cut-throat as some GMs throw in the towel on 2019. Don’t be that fantasy player. With some savvy matchup plays any team can go on a hot streak and sneak into the playoffs. Worst-case scenario, you can still have the enjoyment of playing spoiler to your league-mates. So let’s highlight at a few players still overlooked in most leagues in this…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 10

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. It is upon us. The dreaded Bye-pocalypse has arrived. And like a Kraken from the deep, it has swallowed whole six of our beloved guardians of the gridiron. The services of Broncos, Texans, Jaguars, Patriots, Eagles and the Washington Football Club are suspended. With that, the waiver becomes even scarcer as more teams than not, need some extra assistance. But you know who served up Noah Fant on a silver plater for you last week, so welcome back. These are the…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 9

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. Four more teams are on their bye weeks and everyone is feeling the pinch. As waiver wires thin out, some GMs will make desperation trades to fill in their roster this week. It’s a great time to offer up a two-for-one deal that nets you the better player who is on a bye. Meanwhile, I have scoured the available free agents for you and found some solid value available in 90% of leagues or more. So send those deals out and let me…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 8

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. Only two teams are on their bye in Week 8, so many GM’s aren’t feeling the pinch like they have been the past few weeks. But it is never too early to start scouring for deep waiver opportunities. And for those of us in deeper leagues, we always need to be looking beyond the obvious for values and streamers. So let’s go scraping the bottom of the barrel again and find those deep league diamonds in the rough in this week’s…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 7

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. Bye weeks are creeping up and as that happens weekly fill-ins are becoming more and more important.  With high fantasy capital teams like the Panthers, Browns, Steelers and Buccaneers all on their bye weeks, a lot of teams will be scrambling to fill in some spots. This is where the real fantasy GMs separate themselves. And Dumpster Dives are here for those same GMs as we look at some under rostered playable assets. Zay Jones, WR (Oakland Raiders) – Owned 1.8%…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 6

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. Week 5 was the Dumpster Dives poster child of the NFL season, with names like Byron Pringle, Chase Edmonds, Steven Sims Jr. and even some guy named Reggie Bonnafon topping the weekly points rankings. My previous tight end recommendation of Darren Fells had the fourth-most fantasy points at the position in Week 5, snagging two receptions — both for touchdowns. So which other players are under-owned but could find their way atop the fantasy football weekly rankings in future weeks? Gerald Everett, TE…...

Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 5

Waiver Wire Dumpster Dives takes you beyond the obvious plays and helps you find undervalued gems for deep leagues. As bye-weeks start to pile up and valuable waiver targets dry up, things start to get a little hairy this time of the year. Metrics and data help to clear our line of vision though so can still sniff out a few valuable pickups. It’s getting so sparse that I don’t have an RB listed this week. But Ito Smith is rostered in only 9% of leagues and has improved his YPC to 5.7 so far this year, up from his…...
