RosterWatch Week 3 Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet Now Available

Building 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.

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. I lost last night by 3 points vs the Steeler D.
    My squad is legit
    QB : Richardson, Cousins
    RB : Entienne, Javonte Williams, B. Hall, Kendre Miller, A. Kamara, R. Johnson
    WR. T. Hill, CD Lamb, T Higgins, E. Moore, Jameson Williams
    TE K Pitts, L. Musgrave

    1. Miller and then kamara should add that extra juice juice

  2. Is Kendre Miller worth an add and do I drop anyone to get him in PPR League. This is my squad
    RB: Bijan Robinson, Jamyr Gibbs, James Cook, Jerome Ford,Roschon Johnson, Ken Gainwell
    WR: J Waddle, C. Godwin, JSN, Z. Flowers, DJ Moore
    QB: A Richardson, J Fields
    TE: Pitts (who is every bit of what his last name is)

    1. Yeah I’d say Pitts, but you need a TE. There’s no one else I’d drop for Miller right now, and that means your team is stacked.

  3. Post By Show Me Your TDs

    12 TM Full PPR 2-0

    QB: Richardson
    RBs: Pollard, Mixon, R. White, Hall, Roschon
    WRs: Hill, Deebo, Evans, M. Thomas, E. Moore, Addison

    we start 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE and 1 Flex.

    My concern is who is droppable right now IF i need to for Richardson? Our IR is only for IR/Covid, not “out” player so I would need to do something. Not sure I can consolidate a trade in time but it is on my mind. Initial thoughts would to try to upgrade RB with White and maybe a thomas, moore and addison. however if I cannot pull off a trade I am not sure who to drop. Thanks

    1. Moore is the most expendable at this point

      1. Any buzz about E Moore increasing his role with Chubb out?

  4. standard league

    I have T.Higbee at tight end.

    waiver wire:
    d know

    Do i Drop Higbee for any of these guys?

    1. Higbee had 7 targets last week, he just didn’t do much with them. I don’t need to have any of these guys over him.

  5. d. knox

    sorry not know… thanks!

  6. Post By

    Chubb owner now with Walker as only RB1

    Thinking about sending Ceedee Lamb for Ford and Kamara.

    Is that reasonable or am I just being desperate?

    1. I’d need to know the rest of your team to really evaluate that, but it’s not unreasonable if they can sweeten it a little bit

  7. Should I drop Treylon Burks for any of these WR or RB? Probably need a little more help at the RB position. Any of these guys better than Treylon? Thank you!!!

    J. Reynolds J. Ford
    T. Atwell Z. Moss
    G. Davis J. Hill
    R. Johnson

    1. drop Burks and grab Ford, Moss, and R. Johnson

    2. Sorry for the spacing above, also it’s .5 PPR

      J. Reynolds, T. Atwell, G. Davis.

      J. Ford, Z. Moss, R. Johnson, J. Hill.

    3. Ford for sure. i wouldn’t be surprised if they all outscore Burks by EOS. it’s not a talent thing. Tenn just isn’t a great passing offense.

  8. Chiefs, Pats , Ravens or Jets DST this week. I already have the Jets, should I just hold onto them?

  9. 12 team standard league

    Atwell and Jayden Reed are FAs. should i drop brandin cooks or j meyer for either of them?

  10. Does Hunt move up where on the WW Cheat Sheet now that he’s signed or was that baked in? Do you still like Miller more?

  11. standard league I need to start 3:

    Kenneth Walker
    Kyren Williams

    Also, not sure what to do at QB I have A. Richardson and Justin Fields. Seems like Arich is going to be out do I roll with Fields or I can pick up B.Mayfield, K.Pickett, JGarrapolo, Derek Carr, Jordan Love or CJ Stroud off of waivers for the week. I am 0-2 and need a win!

    Thank you!
