Colin Kaepernick is one of several players who could be very valuable during the fantasy postseason
Chances are your fantasy league’s playoffs either start this week or next, should your team be eligible for the postseason. If that is the case, time is running out to fortify your roster as you prepare to begin your quest for a championship. Injuries also continue to be a factor and another reason why the waiver wire is such an important tool. To that end, here are some possible options worth considering for Week 13 and the rest of the season.
Beanie Wells is back from injured reserve and appears to be the Cardinals' starter again
Five games remain in the NFL’s regular season, but for fantasy leagues it’s almost playoff time. Depending on your league, Week 13 could be the last or second-to-last game before the postseason, meaning time is running out to either tweak your roster to make that last playoff push or reinforce it in your quest for a championship. The latest injuries alone reflect why the waiver wire can mean the difference between sitting out your league’s postseason or potentially finishing it second to no one. Here are some possible options worth considering as you get ready for Week 13.
Mark Ingram has been a different player these last few weeks
If anything, fantasy owners should be thankful in Week 12 that there are no more bye weeks to deal with. All teams will be in action this week, including six on Thanksgiving Day. That doesn’t mean, however, that owners should completely ignore the waiver wire and/or free agent pool in their respective league. With more key injuries happening on Sunday and the fantasy playoff push in full effect, here are some possible options worth considering as you get ready for Week 12.
Frank Gore could be in for some tough sledding against Chicago this week
The end of the fantasy football regular season is coming into focus as we enter Week 11 of the NFL season. The good news is this is the last bye week that owners will have to deal with. The bad news is Week 11 is a pretty big one in terms of fantasy firepower that’s unavailable, especially at running back and wide receiver. No Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch, Chris Johnson, Percy Harvin, or Victor Cruz, to name a few, presents one more challenging week when it comes to roster management for many owners.
Sam Bradford is worth a look if you need a fill-in quarterback this week
It’s Week 11 of the NFL season, which marks the end of the bye weeks. This is the last week that a fantasy owner has to worry about something other than an injury or possible benching impacting their roster. With no Giants, Seahawks, Titans or Vikings available this week, here are some possible waiver wire options worth considering as you prepare your team for Week 11.
Hakeem Nicks is one of two Giants who may be better off left on your bench this week
Week 10 marks the unofficial start to the second half of the NFL regular season. Eight games remain until the NFL’s postseason, but it’s fewer than that when you take into consideration the start of your fantasy league’s playoffs. Week 10 also means that fantasy owners begin their stretch run without the services of Aaron Rodgers, Robert Griffin III, Trent Richardson, Alfred Morris, Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb, the Arizona and Green Bay DSTs, among others.
Isaac Redman could be in for another big game this week against Kansas City
And then there were two, bye weeks that is. Week 10 is the second-to-last bye week on the NFL schedule, but this is one that Aaron Rodgers and Robert Griffin III owners have possibly been dreading. No Packers, Redskins, Browns and Cardinals this week mean no reigning MVP or RGIII, also known as the top two scorers in all of fantasy football, along with several other reliable fantasy producers.
Doug Martin exploded last week, don't count on similar results this Sunday
The calendar has turned to November as we enter Week 9 of the NFL season. Following this week, eight weeks remain in the regular season, meaning in essence, we are halfway home. However, there are still three more bye weeks to manage, including this week as any Patriots, 49ers, Jets or Rams you have on your roster won’t get you any points in Week 9.
Donald Brown is back from knee surgery and should resume his starting role
Three more bye weeks remain with four teams getting a break each week up until Thanksgiving. As for Week 9, New England is the team owners will miss most, although San Francisco, St. Louis and the Jets have their respective useful players.
So whether it’s Tom Brady or Frank Gore or the 49ers DST you need to find a replacement for this week, here are some options for those positions and others worth considering as you look to fill out your Week 9 roster.
Vick Ballard, Rashad Jennings are two running backs who could produce in Week 8
It’s Week 8 of the NFL season, which also marks the halfway point of the bye weeks. By the time Thanksgiving rolls around, all teams will have gotten their one-week respite, which means fantasy owners will only have to worry about injuries or a coach’s decision keeping their main players off of the field. Until then, four teams will be on bye each of the next four weeks, which means there are still plenty of who’s in, who’s out questions that need to be answered.
