RosterWatch Week 6 Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet 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 —- YOU CAN FIND THE WAIVER WIRE PODCAST HERE IN THE PODCAST SECTION AS SOON AS IT GETS POSTED. You can also find it on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or anywhere podcasts are found. Listen to the podcast as a supplement to the sheet as you’re setting waiver claims for additional insight, however, the pod does not give the exact order and/or tiers of the sheet so do not consider it a substitute for using the sheet.

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 .

    Iam in a 12 team ppr league there isn’t one usable Rb on the waiver wire all are taken and stashed. Someone dropped jay ajayi we have $500 in fab I haven’t spent any how much should I throw in to get Ajayi and stash him I’m sure others will be going for him?

    1. Post By Baron VonIronCock

      what kinda cockamamie league is this ?
      depends who u have to drop
      but if he’s the best available
      I guess I may throw down 15 %

    2. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Sounds like you need to exact a trade to get yourself an RB.

  2. Post By FoosballsTheDevil

    Lol thanks man and trust me I kno strangest league I’ve ever been in.

  3. Would you drop OJ Howard for Hunter Henry?

    1. Yes

  4. Should I drop Mark Andrews for Will Dissly?

    1. Seems like a lateral move.

  5. When i go to downloads the sheet isnt there?

    1. Me too

    The Week 6 waiver wire cheat sheet link is not working…

  7. Post By

    No week 6 waiver wire sheet for team “SweaterPuppies” either

  8. the week 6 cheatsheet is not available at the pro link

  9. Appreciate another edition of WW input. Thanks Byron! I’ll check the sheet when it’s available, but give me your thoughts for a 12 team non PPR league.

    Currently have Andrews. Looking ahead to his week 8 bye, would you prioritize Henry (great news, BTW!) or Herndon?

    Preston Williams, Robby A, or Crowder ROS? I’m leaning Williams

  10. Post By

    Put up the waiver wire sheet guys!!! Team name: WeLuvBigTDs
    Team record: sucks

  11. Hmmmm. It says click here to download the sheet yet it just keeps bringing me back to the home page.

  12. Need the assistance of the great Roster Watch Nation.

    12 team, .5 ppr

    RB- Bell, Ingram, Mack, Coleman, McCoy
    WR- Evans, Tyreek, DJ Chark, T Mclaurin, C Samual
    TE- Andrews, Herndon

    Should I drop Herndon for P Williams?

    Would you prefer the Jets defense over any of the WW options on the cheat sheet?

    Thanks for your help. You guys are the best!!

    1. Ravens defense is also available.

    2. Post By Byron Lambert

      No, do not prefer Jets

      Tough call- Williams should be owned. Best case you should trade two of your WR or one of your WR + Herndon for one good player in return and clear a roster spot so you can make the add. If I had to drop Herndon I’d consider it

  13. Going to target Julio, K Allen, M Thomas, Cooper or T Hill. How would you rank them? I can offer on of the Following RB’s with Waller. Ingram, A Jones or M Gordon. My other RB’s are Chubb and Fournette.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Lol, waivers today- trades tomorrow!

      Julio / Thomas
      Cooper / Hill

  14. .5ppr, 2RB, 2WR, 2Flex. My team CMC, J Howard, M Sanders, Gore, Penny, Mostert, Darrel Williams, K Allen, Evans, JuJu, Edelman, C Sutton, and Kirk.

    I was offered Chubb for Sutton + Sanders or Howard. Would you take it?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Yes, and I would probably send Howard in the deal. Great trade for your situation!

      1. Awesome thanks Byron. If he pushes for Sanders, I’m still saying yes, correct?

        1. He wants Howard, disregard this…..but I do need help with the comment below.

      2. Ugh, also just checked….if I accept the trade, week 7 will be rough. CMC, Chubb, Evans, and JuJu will all be on bye. Do I just take that week off, lol? I’m 2-3…..but 3rd highest points scored.

  15. DK sheet is killing it $$$.
    Does that dopey trashman still think McCaffrey hasn’t been great this year lmfao…

        This is my girlfriend’s first year running her own team. I brought her home the draft cheat sheet to draft with and she was mocked incessantly for taking CMC over Barkley at #1. She’s 4-1 and dominating those cockamamie chumps. Nation!

        1. Post By

          Haha, same thing happened to me. I took CMC #1 based on the epic Cheat Sheet and everyone thought I was nuts!

  16. Post By

    Hey guys, Thanks for your continues help!

    Question: Should I use my #1 waiver to claim Everett and who would you drop?

    12team standard
    OJ, Herndon, Golden, Dorsett

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      No, don’t use a #1 claim on him— good rule might be guys 25 or 30% FAAB or higher to consider that. Could drop Dorsett or DRob as mentioned below

  17. Post By

    0.5 ppr 12 team

    Thinking about Everett… would you drop

    Golden, OJ, Mike Will, DeMarcus Robinson

    I have Jameis.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Maybe DRob

  18. Post By LukeTakesShip

    Thinking about pairing russel Wilson and Mark Ingram for leveon. 10 team league with good QB streamers on wire. Thoughts?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Love the idea— Wilson is a little rich– but if your wire is that good– it’s a move you just may have to make. Generally speaking this is a good trade. Bell has some big days ahead. I’d most likely do it if I were you.

      1. Post By LukeTakesShip

        Thanks! I’ve got guys like Goff, minshew , stafford, garrapolo I can stream from here on out

  19. How about this trade – for me to propose I need better RB
    I have Dissly and Kittle

    Trade Kittle for
    team 1 has MGordon and Mixon I might be interested He has DWalker as TE
    Team 2 Has KaryonJohnson, JConnor and DHenry he has VMcdonald and OJHoward as his TE
    These are the 2 last place teams in the league

    Should I offer either of these coaches a trade?

    My RB – I need to play 3 + 1 flex possibility PPR
    McCaffrey, DelvCook, Brieda, TColeman, CHyde and RoyceFreeman

  20. I own McCaffrey and DelvCook in PPR!
    Mattison and Bonnafon are available
    Should I be thinking about HC one or both at this point Who should I dop to do this?

    My team (play 3 RB 4 WR 1TE and 2 Flex in PPR)
    McCaffrey, DelvCook, Brieda, TColeman, CHyde and RoyceFreeman
    THill, OBJ, Godwin, TBoyd, ARobinson, CSamuel, CKirk
    Kittle and Dissly (but hoping to trade Kittle for better RB – see above question)

  21. Buy Diggs low? PPR
    Should I offer my opponent one of my WR for Diggs? Opponent has DHop, MThomas and KCupp so might let go for someone more stable Since we play 4 WR and potential 2 Flex he still need WR

    my WR
    THill, OBJ, Godwin, TBoyd, ARobinson, CSamuel, CKirk

    ARob or CSamuel for Diggs?

  22. Different league PPR
    I have WR THill, SWatkins, LFitz, TBoyd, ESanders

    Sitting on Waivers right now are DJChark, Fuller and Ridley

    Should I dump ESanders and/or Watkins for at least Chark

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Yeah, I would probably dump Sammy for him–

  23. 12 team PPR trade offer my team
    Qb- m Ryan and brees
    Rb- mccaffrey, Fournette, Duke Johnson, Miles Sanders.
    WR- Keenan Allen, Julian Edelman,Sammy Watkins, Allen Robinson, Tyler Lockette, Golden Tate.
    TE- Hooper
    Guy just offered me DeAndre Hopkins/ Carlos Hyde/ Ronald Jones for Keenan Allen/Miles Sanders. Seems like a Good trade to me with my wr depth and will give me a little more Rb depth but always like to run it by u guys first. Iam undefeated so far. What you think? Thank you

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Yeah, if you are getting Hopkins + Hyde + RoJo you should do that. You should also consider handcuffing Fournette sooner than later

  24. .5 ppr for fuller or Gallup for ROS? I have the #2 waiver priority and trying to decide who to go for first.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Probably Gallup

  25. Post By

    1pt ppr trade request.

    Receive Kelce, D. Freeman, Diggs

    Give Mark Ingram, Dissly

    I have Chubb and Henry at Rb
    I have Godwin and Adams at wr

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Yeah, if you’re getting Kelce I’d take that deal

  26. I am in 12 team std league season goes to wk 17. I drafted according to the cheat sheet. However, NFL is what it is and I am 1-4. The worst I have ever been in the 15yrs I have been playing fantasy, but I never give up. This league I’m in we have a 8 man bench, people dont trade, will stash 4 qbs, 3 TE, 3 Def, have a bench full of RBs. Another note I have seen them collab and drop players and have there boy pick them up and they do that thougout the season. I thought in theory this wont last they will have to drop someone and they dont. I’m just stuck, literally dont know what to do. I’m in dire need of reciever and my best option is Preston’s William’s and Pettis…I dunno gents. Thoughts?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Preston Williams is a great option. Keep grinding. Feel free to post a screen shot of your entire roster

  27. Week 6 sheets still broken?

  28. Trade offer My Juju for Fourtnette
    My team
    Damien Williams
    Thank you

  29. Would you use the number 3 waiver wire on Gerald Everette? My TE Jimmy G

  30. 12 Team PPR

    Would you drop Ballage for either A. Peterson or Chase Edmonds?

    Also would you drop Houston Defense this week for any of the Options on the sheet? I have 5th priority.

    West Coast Bias

  31. Ppr deep league walker and fant are my te Henry is on the wire 450 of 500$ of faab left how much should I bid one Henry last week in another league he went for 172$ thanks for the help

  32. Post By Flying Toilet

    Someone just dropped Robby Anderson today and Darnold is coming back. I have the waiver priority #1. Is Robby worth pulling that trigger?

  33. Post By

    So a trade I just completed. My, Dak, Devin Singletary, Ju Ju and OJ Howard for Saquon, Duke Johnson, Josh Allen and Hunter Henry. I have ARod as my starter, Josh Jacobs, Derrick Henry, Julio, Davante, Fitz and Hollywood, Hockenson. Thoughts??

  34. not this week but next week (week 7) i run into bye issues.

    gore and chris thompson are both avialbe. on waivers. gore has miami for wk 7 and thompson has SF.

    who would you pick up for that spot? would be droping ronald jones.

    other RBs are CMC, Chubb, and Coleman. thanks.

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I think Thompson, but only because Singletary could be back by Week 7

  35. S. Protocol 4-1

    .25 ppr … Flex Kerryon Johnson or Sony Michel?

    Starting Mark Ingram and Aaron Jones in RB slots.

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo


  36. Post By

    Well got screwed on the waivers this week for TE since I have Waller on Bye. Which TE should I pick up and play. Witten (already have Amari Cooper) Hockenson, Vance McDonald, Vernon Davis, Noah Fant.

    1. I’m in a similar situation. I might have to roll Vance.

      1. Post By

        Sucks, im really liking Noah Fants matchup tho, im also stuck between playing Sony Michel, Matt Bredia or Cortland Sutton. I have Bredia in my RB spot and Sutton in my flex so far.

  37. Post By

    I’m currently 4-1, but both my WR and TE situations are starting to worry me a bit. Should I be concerned?

    QBs: Mahomes, Murray
    RBs: Bell, Henry
    WRs: Evans, Samuel, Kirk, John Brown, Preston Williams
    TEs: Howard, Henry
    K: Nugent
    DEF: Patriots

  38. 12 team full ppr. Team name Nobody’s Burfict (1-4). I own David Johnson and Edmonds is on waivers tonight. Who of this group (if any) would you drop?
    CSamuel, McLaurin,Crowder,MWilliams, RPenny.
    My wrs are OBJ,ARob, and those listed above. My rb’s are DJ, DHenry, Damian Williams, and Penny. Thanks guys

  39. Would you guys drop Golden Tate for McLauren?

  40. Post By

    For 2 QB Leagues:
    I’m in a bad spot, if Keenum is healthy and starting do you stream him this week over the likes of Dalton, Mariota, Flacco?

  41. Post By

    Looking for second thoughts on a trade….my core line up is Dalvin, Mike Thomas, Chris Carson, and Aaron Jones. It’s PPR and I’m 5-0.

    My QBs are Jimmy G and Brissett (don’t ask) and I’m working with a guy that has both Russ and Watson. I prefer Russ by a pinch, but either would be an obvious upgrade. The other part of me thinks I’m in the position of strength and it sucks to be the guy with two top-5 QBs and having to bench one.

    I have bye week coverage for my RBs and WRs in the form of ARob and Alshon (they can all be flexed) as well as Mattison and Penny as handcuffs.

    The trade is shaking out to be Wilson and Will Fuller for my Aaron Jones and Robinson. I’d rather give up Royce Freeman or Alshon but I’m not sure he’ll accept and haven’t countered yet. Any thoughts would be appreciated…thanks.

  42. Post By Baron VonIronCock

    I know it sucks to get avg pts from ur qb but
    I dont trade jones…
    Youre 5 and 0

    1. Post By

      Yeah that’s what I was thinking. Would you consider pushing for something with the other guys, i.e. Robinson/Jeffrey/Freeman (he has Lindsey)?

      His position players aren’t great: CMC, Lindsey, Duke, Cohen, Singletary, Fuller, TY, Metcalf, Parker, Corey Davis.

      If I had 2 stud QBs I would think adding ARob or Jeffrey would be an upgrade…agree?
