RosterWatch Week 10 Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet and Podcast Now Available

Byron BylineBuilding a championship-caliber fantasy roster requires basic weekly waiver-wire management. We’ve created the Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet so that in a just a few minutes a week, our users can make the same expert waiver maneuvers we personally make in our own leagues, throughout the season.

PODCAST —- PRO MEMBERS CAN FIND THE WAIVER WIRE PODCAST HERE IN THE PRO PODCAST DOWNLOADS SECTION. It usually will be up by Tuesday afternoon. Listen to the PRO podcast as a supplement to the sheet as you’re setting waiver claims for additional insight.

Whether you play in a standard waiver-claim format, or in a free-agent bidding system – we’ve got you covered. Read the chart top to bottom, and use it like the Draft Cheat Sheet. It’s not mandatory to go after the very top pick up every single week – use some basic discretion. Insane value can be cultivated through the bottom of the Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet over the course of the season.

All players listed on the WWCS are currently on the waiver wire in at least 50% of fantasy leagues across all major formats.

*Our advice is to recycle an average of 1-2 players per week from the bottom of your roster into hot waiver-wire pickups for the current week. This can be accomplished via waivers, or on the cheap as free-agent pickups post-waiver period .

  1. whoa, whoa, WHOA! Did anybody else catch the Trashman claiming to teach psychology at a collegiate level? I would’ve fallen out of my chair if I wasn’t too busy spraying coffee all over my computer monitor.

      I totally had to read it twice to make sure I was comprehending it correctly!

      1. Post By Byron Lambert

        Lol yall, I read that today too. It’s actually kind of true

  2. Josh Gordon was dropped in a FAAB league, do I go all in trying to get him?

    1. I would. There shouldn’t be a better target on waivers the rest of the year. Look at the other teams available faab to see if you could get away with out bidding them instead of spending it all.

  3. I own DMartin as my 5th RB (depth) in PPR Would I rather own McGuire, ISmith or MDavis instead?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I might roll the dice on McGuire there

  4. I was wondering/hoping you guys might be able to add the teams “implied team total” to the matchup tool to help make line up desicions and with DFS. I hear Alex talk about those numbers every Sunday morning but have no idea where to find those numbers. Thanks.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Noted for possible future versions. Pretty happy w/ current version for now. Implied totals are baked into the other tools

    2. Implied total can be configured by the odds on game total + or – the line on any online site. 50 game total with Chargers as -10 favorites would be 30. 50/2+10/5=30.

      1. Do 50-30 and get a total of 20 for the underdog team.

  5. have been streaming defenses and now have Houston – on bye
    They have a pretty good schedule though week 16
    hang on to them or just dump and try for Jets, Washington
    GB or colts?


    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I’d hang on to them but still find a way to pick up a def to play this wk. If it comes down to it, you can’t take a zero

  6. In a 14-team, 1-point PPR league, with Justin Tucker on BYE this week . . . do I cut Tucker to pick up a decent kicker? Or do I cut Derrick Henry, my 5th RB on my depth chart?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Either is fine. I’d have to check Tucker’s game log. Dropping Henry is fine if you prefer keeping Tucker. We rarely if ever roster 2 kickers

      1. Thank you Byron!

  7. Is DJ Moore too high owned to be on here? I just dropped him and although love his talent think this are too many mouths to feed. Is it worth trying to pick him back up for Sterling Shepard?

    Frustrated with a tough 2 point loss and looking to make a bold move. Would you trade my Georgia Bulldog Backfield (Michel and Chubb) for Kamara? That would leave with me Saquan and Mixon plus Kamara. Or, would you try and do Julio and Chubb or Michel for Kamara. Or, lol, am I over thinking this and just on tilt because the Titans could’t give Henry a few more carries (bye week hell).

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Think you’re on tilt

      Id prob keep Moore over SS and only use him when / where necessary

      Kamara wld be a nice add since you have the depth to do it, but that’s too much for him

  8. Post By Uncle_Maynard

    .5ppr. Got offered Tom Brady for my Kittle and Dion Lewis. My QBs are Fitzpatrick and Stafford. I also own Njoku. My RBs are Collins, Chubb, Michel, Jamaal Williams.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I might do it for Kittle and Collins or NJoku and Lewis. you could offer stafford too.

  9. Standard league non ppr. Have been offered trade to receive E. Sanders and I give up M. Mack and T. Boyd. First thought is it’s not a fair trade in terms of value but looking to shore up my depth at wr heading into playoffs. My other RBs are Gurley, Gordon,K. Johnson. Should I pull the trigger?

  10. Professor Trashman,
    Recycle C Sutton for MVS or Amari Cooper?

  11. Post By

    Dynasty league, .5 PPR. Out of it this year so building for future. Been offered a trade and wanted to get your thoughts?

    Get: David Johnson and George Kittle
    Give: Melvin Gordon

    My TE are Reed and McDonald. So a definite upgrade there

  12. Post By

    Larry Fitz is available. Can I drop ito, Sutton, or breida for him? Sorta same Q I guess for MVS. PPR

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      If you don’t need Ito and you need a WR, that move is fine. Yes, same for MVS. I’d rather have MVS than Ito Smith

  13. PPR have Gurley,Chubb ,Michel and Phillip Lindsey at RB. Jordan Reed and Uzumah at TE. Would you trade Michel and Lindsey and receive Kittle and Lamar Miller?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      No, do just a deal for Kittle. Maybe send Reed + Lindsay for Kittle

  14. Post By

    Great job guys, valuable info
    I have a guy wanting to get rid of Mahomes he’s in last place, I’m in 1st per league. I’m loaded;

    Luck. A Smith

    Mixon Barkley
    Conner Ingram

    Gordon Hopkins
    Hilton. Baldwin

    Burton. Reed

    I’m pretty comfortable with what I have but Mahomes would be great too. He’s asking for Conner?

  15. Post By

    Ppr league ^^^^^

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Can’t do it. If you want Mahomes you have to trade Luck + somebody else of lesser value than Conner to get it done.

  16. Post By

    Ok thanks, I’ll just let someone else fool with it, I have a flex spot as well so it will be fine with those three running backs together

  17. 1 point PPR . . . 10 team league with deep benches, would you trade away Thielen to receive David Johnson?

  18. 12 team half-PPR league (5-4)
    2 RB, 2 WR, 1 FLEX

    QB: Big Ben, Mayfield
    WRs: K. Allen, Gordon, Kupp, Kirk, Sutton
    RBs: Zeke, Mixon, Kerryon, Howard, Drake
    TE: Jared Cook

    The team below is now 3-6 and is trying super hard to get my Mixon and now Howard… He’s texted me tentative offers like:

    Howard for Golladay

    Big Ben and Howard for Mahomes (won’t process in time because of TNF)

    Other team:
    QB: Mahomes
    WRs: AB, Golladay, MVS, Shepard, Crabtree
    RBs: Brieda, Ito, Miller, Collins, Ekeler, McGuire, Foreman
    TE: McDonald

    Think I’m only interested in his AB, Golladay, MVS and Mahomes here. As much as I’d like to trade for AB, a deal wouldn’t process in time since he plays on TNF but would you make either of the deals above and if not what type of counter offer would you make? Part of me thinks I can maybe get more for Howard elsewhere but patiently waiting the TRADECAST since trade deadline is November 10th.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      You should only be interested in AB and Mahomes. Never do deals by text, it’s how you get left at the alter. Always tell them to send the trade and you’ll look it over. Never tell them yes over text, always wait until sent.

      Yes- I’d do that deal for Mahomes (Howard + Big Ben).

      Lol, Renourka sad about his team early has a fucking monster on his hands. You must currently be thinking you have a sick roster on your hands for the stretch run every time you look at your squad. This is a true RW Team. It’s a giant burly one.

  19. Byron, wanted to get your thoughts on a trade I was offered. His Landry and Dion Lewis, for my Kupp and ARob. 10 team half point ppr.

    My team:
    RB – Hunt, Lindsay, Yeldon, Kerryon
    WR – AB, Evans, Kupp, ARob, Watkins, Fitz

    His team:
    RB – Kamara, Conner, Michel, Lewis
    WR – Green, Diggs, Sanders, Landry, Valdes-Scantling

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Yeah, I’d prob do it. You could prob use Lewis. Landry is a fine replacement for Kupp

  20. Standard league, I was just offered this trade. I’m receiving kupp and and Aaron Jones for obj and Lewis. Any thoughts?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Don’t think so. Gamble on OBJ going big. Like AJones but unclear how much he outdoes Lewis by at this pt

  21. Is Marquise Goodwin droppable to grab a tight end for next week (when Kittle is on bye)?

    1. Also would you drop Goodwin for John Ross?

      1. Post By Byron Lambert

        Meh, don’t think so

    2. Post By Byron Lambert


  22. Is Larry Fitz back on track? Should I start him over Golladay or JuJu? thanks

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Wait for rankings. But yes- LF looks to be back in play at least as a WR3

  23. I was offered Diggs & Ridley for my Edelman in PPR. I have to accept this, right? (Assuming I have enough WR depth to hold me over during Diggs’ bye this week)

    Roster: Goff, JuJu, Edelman, CMC, Fournette, Engram, MVS || CThompson, Ito, McGuire, Amari, Sutton, Yeldon. Sitting at 5-4 im this league.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      That’s probably fine. Like Edelman quite a bit in PPR, ROS. It’s a close call because you have some depth at WR. You def have to be considering who helps you win the most this week, and who gives you the best starting lineup down the stretch.

      In terms of value, this is a solid offer- however you may be shifting your player equity in the wrong direction and diluting your starting lineup for depth. If you determine Diggs and Edelman are basically even value ROS, then I would suggest doing it to add Ridley to your roster as a form of arbitrage.

      Trust Edelman a lot on a weekly basis right now. Diggs obv very nice player who sees plenty of targets big picture.

      1. Thanks Byron, sounds like gun to your head, you might trust Edelman week to week just ever so slightly over Diggs – definitely need to win as much as possible at 5-4.

  24. Post By

    I’ve had two guys in my league drop Njoku and Allen Robinson. TE and WR are weak positions for me this year, would either one (or both) be worth adding? Guys for me to drop would be Jordan Reed, Elijah McGuire, Eric Ebron. Also have Lockett and Mark Ingram

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Yes. I’d consider dropping Reed or Ebron and / or possible lockett

  25. Post By

    1 pt ppr

    Chubb is my rb5 after Conner mixon Zeke and mcC

    Trade chubb for ertz?

  26. Standard scoring and wondering if I should grab MVS who wasn’t picked up in waivers. Would need to drop Baldwin, Fitzgerald or Ridley. I’m looking for highest potential over the next 4 weeks. Thanks in advance!

  27. Byron/Alex trade ?

    Dalvin Cook for Keenan Allen. I am getting Allen. My team is loaded

    David Johnson
    Alvin Kamara
    Dalvin Cook
    Mike Davis
    Joe Mixon

    Davante Adams
    Tyler Boyd
    Tyler Lockett
    Courtland Sutton

    Should I make the deal??

  28. Post By

    Should I trade OBJ for ZEKE? might be able to get Sony or Fournette in the deal too if i can who would you go after?

    I have Sanders/Gordon/Edelman/Jones JR and my WR

  29. Post By

    standard league too

  30. Should I pickup Dez or Patterson and drop Watkins? 10-team standard league and I’m 7-2. The ROS schedule is pretty easy for me, so looking to prepare my team for a strong playoff run.

    QB: Ben
    RB: Melvin, Saquon, Connor, Cook, Johnson
    WR: TY, Gordon, Sanders, Watkins
    TE: Olsen, Njoku

  31. Post By

    What 2 of 3 would you take out of: Scantling, Sutton and Allen Robinson? PPR League.
