RosterWatch Week 9 Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet and Podcast 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. Hey Trashman. (PPR) On waiver wire, need to pick one up for RB Depth, don’t need to play this week: A.Dillon, Adrian Peterson or J. McNichols?

    1. Dillon or McNichols?

  2. Post By

    Michael Thomas was dropped in a 10 team super flex 1/2 ppr. Should I go all in on FAAB?

    1. Do not use all your FAAB. Only about 5-10% is worth it

  3. Post By

    what do I do with D’Ernest Johnson going forward. Is he droppable? Is freidermuth better than noah fant going forward? Thanks.

  4. is Henry effectively out for the year? is there any point in holding on to him?

    1. If you don’t have an IR spot and are not undefeated you cannot hold on to him. He is out atleast 8 weeks which would mean he would only play after Fantasy playoffs are over.

  5. Help! 3-5. I need to shake things up Need a win this week (and beyond…)
    PPR play 1 QB 2 RB 3 WR 1 flex 1 TE
    # need to play. My Team
    [1] QB: Wentz
    [2]. RB AKamara, JRobinson, EMitchell MSanders Clyde E-H(IR)
    [3]. WR DHopkins KAllen JChase Antonio Brown, J Landry Ruggs
    [1]. TE Gesiki

    To shake things up: I am thinking of dropping Ruggs, TPollard and/or MSanders for:
    available on Waiver:
    RB APeterson MMichnichols B Scott MDavis BBolden AJ Dillon M Ingram Hyde
    WR SterlingShepard, Aiyuk LShenault Allen Robinson Agnew

    What should be my moves? Please place a few in order (waiver pick up tonight)

    Thank you

    1. Well Ruggs is about to be charged with DUI resulting in death so I’d say he’s a safe drop…

  6. I am playing Wentz (4 point pass TD 6 point run TD league)
    Available are”
    Carr, Djones TyHill Tua and Bridgewater

    Drop Wentz?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Wentz is fine- but I would also consider Tua this wk-

  7. Defence Question:

    I have Pit Def

    Available are New England and Dallas

    Those 2 any better for his week and beyond?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I probably like PIT best this week, then NE esp if Darnold is out, then DAL. They are all interesting rest of season I would examine the upcoming matchups

  8. Trashman – heads up! You spilled something on your shirt.

  9. RW, need your advice. (PPR League) On waiver wire, need to pick one up for RB Depth, don’t need to play this week:
    A.Dillon, Adrian Peterson or J. McNichols?
    Please rank in order of priority

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      McNichols, Dillon, AP

      1. this completely contradicts the wwcs?

  10. So interesting offer… get Henry for WR Mike Thomas… he’s current in my IR spot… have 2… would u make this trade… currently 6-2 and of course have no idea when Thomas is coming back… Henry then goes in IR spot currently being filled by Thomas… thoughts… definitely a gamble

  11. Post By Byron Lambert

    Derrick Henry? Is that a keeper option for next yr?

    1. No… redraft auction league

    2. Current WR are Chase, Mike Williams, AB, and Pittman

  12. Are we dropping ridley in a 10tm

  13. Depends on how deep your bench is and who you can pick up. If you can get Peterson, then yes.

  14. No mention of Mekhi?

  15. Post By

    Who should i start as my flex. Mark Andrews or Khalil Herbert? Half point PPR. Thanks!

  16. Post By

    Scottie Phillips? Can you elaborate more on that? I’m in a dynasty league, and if I pick this kid up off waivers, he’s eligible to be kept in the 15th round next year. Is he a stash for next year?


  17. 10 team full PPR..
    I’m not feeling all that confident in starting Hurts..
    Would you pick up and play any of the following FA QB’s over Hurts.
    White, Bridgewater, Wentz

  18. got killed at RB this week. lost henry and james robinson. have m sanders and jd mckissic on my bench.

    dropped Henry to pick up scott. was able to also pick up AP.

    for rest of year pollard, drake, and ty johnson are out on waivers. are any of those guys preferable over J.D. McKissic?

  19. Have 3 players on bye, lost Ruggs and picked up Mooney. Also picked up Adrian Peterson on the waiver. Now I have Noah Fant on COVIDReserve list. D. Arnold is on the waiver. Should I drop one of these to pick him up (Fant, AP, Sony Michel, or Miles Sanders) or roll with no TE this week. 12 team standard league, 4-4 record, highest points in the league so far. Rest of starters this week are J. Fields, Z. Elliot, m. Carter, D. Hopkins, D. Mooney, K. Toney, T. Bass, Patriots. Rest of bench Brady, Evans, Metcalf.
