  Waivers
**Please look at past weeks as well, so far been crushing it with the adds, hopefully they have been helping you guys as well, good luck all!
Remember, I give adds I feel have value, I will not just toss out names like other sites do to fill space and hope you respect me for that. ***

 

                                                                                                                                               WEEK 16  WAIVERS (Championship weekend!)
There is not alot of real adds this week, ride who got you here. Saying that here are a couple guys if your desperate( I wouldnt use an FA this week unless ITS MUST!).

LB Zach Vigil (WAS)-Decent floor.
LB Jatavis Brown (SD)-Perryman likely out but a risk still.
S Adrian Phillips (LAC)-Decent floor due to Perryman out.
DL Johnathan Hankins (IND)- Hot the last 2 weeks with a good match up.
DE  Anthony Lanier (WAS)- Playing well, high snap count, looks like he could be a player worth stashing into 2018 in dyansty leagues as well.



                                                                                                                                              WEEK 15  WAIVERS 
Sean Davis  S, Pittsburgh Steelers
With the loss of Ryan Shazier, Davis had a good amount of tackle opportunites and made the best of it this week, if you have an injury and need someone to play this week he worth a look but keep in mind this weeks game could be a passing affair, high risk  DB2.

Ezekiel Ansah DE, Detriot Lions
Ansah has been playing great the last 3 weeks, he says he is finally healthy and is playing for a contract. I have Ansah in the 15-20 range going forward as he will highly  motivated and has proven to be a top end DE when healthy. 

Kelvin Sheppard LB, New York Giants
I'm not sold on him as must start, he has an ok floor of about 8-10 combine tackles in his current role with Goodson out, alot of players are nicked up this week and depending on your injury situation and if you league is tackle heavy he a player worth looking at.  FYI chec my twitter for injury updates  https://twitter.com/IDPWiseGuy.

Desmond King & Quandre Diggs CBs
King has been turning into an IDP star due to his position, he rushes the passer and provides high upside for a position that is often hard to fill. Diggs is starting safety and CB eligible so that's always a great thing!.... I rank both as top 10 CBs and top 25 DBs.

Ha Ha Clinton Dix S Green Bay Packers
Dix has had 3/4 good of weeks and playing well going into the fantasy championships, he gets the Panthers and Vikings the next 2 weeks which is a good pair of match ups. Lets keep it real, at this point in the season with guys hurt you might someone to play and he is a good position to help a fantasy team with injuries or an under preforming star. 


Terrell Suggs/Bruce Irvin LBs ** Copy of last week, but rings true still**
Both guys are hot right now and getting to the QB, if your in a big play league or just desperate due to injuries.... both guys could get a big play, for those who like taking a shot on a sack, these are as good as bets anyone right now at getting one. 

                                                                                                                                               WEEK 14  WAIVERS 
 Vince Williams/Danny Trevathan LBs
With the loss of Shazier make sure Williams isn't available, he should get alot of tackle opporunities, top 20 LB for the rest of the season. Danny T, MY BOY! came back, make sure he wasn't dropped, kid is a top 15 LB. 

Eric Lee LB/DE, New England Patriots
He has been playing alot the last couple of weeks due to injuries( Van Noy and Flowers are Qs this week as well) and he has been playing well. in full IDP leagues with playoffs here and injuries piling up have a look at him, he has looked explosive. 

 Jordan Evans/Paul Posluszny/Josh Bynes LBs
Vontaze Burficit, Telvin Smith, Deone Bucannon are all iffy to play this week, these 3 guys are the guys who would play in their place so keep an eye out, all are in good situations to put up numbers if the starters miss time.

Bradley McDougald S, Seattle Seahawks
He has been a tackle machine the last two weeks in place of Kam Chancellor, with Jax, Dallas, AZ as 3 of his last 4 games he should keep getting a good number of tackle opportunities. DB1/2. 

Dre Kirkpatrick CB,  Cincinnati Bengals
This one hurts me and the reason I like to do waivers weds morning.... I grabbed him last might and hes in conucussion protocal. IF Dre plays, he is a MUST start DB, I have him as my CB#1 due to his tackle numbers lately. 

Marlon Humphrey CB, Baltimore Ravens
Well Jimmy Smith got a PED  suspension and season ending injury, talk about a bad weekend.... Marlon Humphrey will be tested often and should be a nice safe source of  tackles for CB required leagues. 

Terrell Suggs/Bruce Irvin LBs
Both guys are hot right now and getting to the QB, if your in a big play league or just desperate due to injuries.... both guys could get a big play, for those who like taking a shot on a sack, these are as good as bets anyone right now at getting one. 

                                                                                                                                              WEEK 13  WAIVERS 
Sheldon Richardson DT/DE, Seattle Seahawks
The mid-season addition is starting to play well with 12 tackles and 1 sack over the last 2 weeks. The playing time is up, the play is up and he has incentive to finish the season strong and rebuild his rep as a DL star. DT/DE eligibility helps him as well for those who have DT spots, at this point in the season we need to avoid struggling stars we've been holding and look at players who are playing well now. I have Richardson as in DL 25-30 range right now and that could go up if he keeps up this recentl play.

Preston Brown LB, Buffalo Bills
He should be owned in more leagues than he is now, he has been a safe solid floor for tackles, I have him as LB2 with his nice floor. Check your wire.

Tahir Whitehead LB, Detriot Lions
As with Preston Brown he should be owned in more leagues, he's been playing well and the addition of Davis hasn't halted his star, LB2 range as well.

Kelvin Sheppard, LB New York Giants
He isnt a great player but he is playing 3 downs as long as the other MLBs are hurt, LB4/3 type of guy when starting.

Miles Killebrew S, Detriot Lions
Tavon Wilson is out for the year, Killebrew is the starter going forward, if your not happy with your starter now he is worth an add to see what he does. DB2 with upside, I would not drop a top 15 DB for him.

Olivier Vernon DE, New York Giants
Vernon is finally healthy and playing well and playing on a solid line, he should be a good player to own down the stretch.  I would rank him as top 15 DL going forward. 

                                                                                                                          The other side of the ball
Rod Smith RB, Dallas Cowboys- This combo isn't working, Rod Smith has looked like the better player and I think he ends up being the lead back this week and going forward. 

Ricky Seals-Jones TE, Arizona Cardinals- Ricky was a highly touted freshman WR and has great speed and ball skills for a TE, great dynasty add and should be a top 15 TE to finish the year. 

                                                                                                                                               WEEK 12  WAIVERS 
Johnathan Cyrpien, S Tennesse Titans
He played his 3rd game in week 11 and had 10 total tackles, he looks healthy and ready to be back to his old self, he is a top 15 DB going forward.

Earl Thomas, S Seattle Seahawks
With the injuries to his Legion of Boom teammates, there are going to be more opportunites for the super talented safety, he could a be sneaky play for an elite finish with more tackles than we are use to seeing from the star safety. 

Calvin Munson, LB New York Giants
As long as B.J Goodson is out he is worth owning and should be in the LB3 range, he isnt a great player but he finds the ball carrier and should have some solid tackle numbers. 

Vonn Bell, S New Orleans Saints
As long as Vaccarro is out he should be on a roster, he is a good player in a great  IDP situation if Kenny V doesnt play this weekend( I'm betting Kenny V does play but just incase). 


                                                                                                                                             WEEK 11  WAIVERS
Anthony Hitchens, LB Dallas Cowboys
It sounds like Sean Lee will miss a couple of games, Hitchens will slide in a nice role until Lee is back. Hitchens is a good tackler and has been productive when he's on the field and is a good add for Lee owners or owners looking for a short term LB2/3 type of player.

Budda Baker, S Arizona Cardinals 
Tyvon Branch is out for the year with a torn ACL, Budda is taking Branch's role and like anyone they plug in will be a beast. He is a born playmaker and good read and tackle safety as well, he should be a top 10-12 Safety the rest of the way. GRAB HIM. 

Leger Douzable,  DL San Franciso 49ers
We all expected Soloman to really take off post Arik Armstrong, but it's been Douzable doing the heavy lifting. Douzable is a bit if a risk due to his lack of predigree but you can't knock his play so far, he's been a very solid tacker and safe week to week player. He looks to be a weekly top 20 DL and is worth an add to see if he can keep his play and production going. 

Davon House, CB Green Bay Packers
Tackles, tackles and more tackles, he is the kind of CB you want. I dropped Breeland for him this week because you can't let a  CB who is getting this many tackles on the wire. Top 10 CB unless he get's benched. 


                                                                                                                                               WEEK 10  WAIVERS 

Damon Harrison, DT New York Giants
I have no idea why he is not owned in ALL DT required leagues, he's one of the safest DTs in the game in real and fantasy. Top 5 DT, if your leagues requires a DT spot, make sure he is not on the wire...Unless you own David Irving, then who cares! Irving is the best thing since sliced beard and J.J.Watt! 

Ramon Humber, LB Buffalo Bills
He is on the wire in too many leagues, LB3, just make sure he isnt sitting there. 

Denzel Perryman, LB LA Chargers, Josh Gordon WR, Corey Coleman  WR, Greg Olsen TE, David Johnson RB
This is when you want to make a push for the title, if you have dead weight on your roster try to get some of these guys. All of these guys could be HUGE difference makers down the stretch,  if you are honest with yourself in a 8+team league there is someone you will never use on your bench why not stash someone who you might actually want to start.

Robert Ayers, DE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ayers with the loss of Spence is locked into a full time roll, he has been getting good pressure and has some good match ups from here on out. He is a good add if you are looking for a DE2.

Davon House, CB, Green Bay Packers
House played the most snaps of any Packers  CB the last couple of weeks and should be starting the rest of the way, he's a good solid add for leagues with CBs, I have him as a top 15 CB as long as he starts playing on a Defense that will be on the field often. 


                                                                                                                                                WEEK 9  WAIVERS 
 Mychal Kendricks, LB Phi Eagles
 **From last week, but saying it again** Jordan Hicks is out for the season, so I expect Mychal Kendricks to be back to the IDPer we are want. He should be a good floor LB with top 20 potential, I see LB2 with upside for the forgotten one. 

Henry Anderson, DT Indianapolis Colts
Healthy and looking good again, we all remember the flashes he showed before getting hurt as a rookie. There are not many DTs so when I see one I think could be a good safe week to week starter for anyone in leagues using a DT, I like pointing it out. 

A.J Bouye, CB, Jacksonville Jaguars
With all the bye weeks, good players tend to get dropped and CBs are the first players we look to when we must drop an asset. He is coming off is bye and is a top 15 CB, add in the fact alot of CBs are hitting bye weeks, he's a great add since you can now ride him out for the rest of the season with his bye week out of the way.

Ryan Kerrigan LB Wash, Jon Bostic LB Ind, Terrell Suggs LB Balt
 3 LBs I see are not owned highly and have good match ups this week. They make for good bye week players, Kerrigan has been crushing it with big plays this year and he I  see him as a great addition this week, Kerrigan is a season long LB3 for me in any league due to his sack production and he is done his bye week.

Denzel Perryman, LB LA Chargers & Shane Ray LB Denver Broncos
Shane Ray is now back and  starting, Perryman soon will be, Perryman I see a risk/reward LB3/4 and is more a gamble if you have room due to his ankle. The talent is there and the situation is great if he ends up taking back one of the starting LB spots for the Chargers( Pullard owners no need to worry!). Shane Ray has the making of a star in real life and for me he is personally a good under the radar add as an LB3. Ray is someone who can get some tackles( 3-4) with sacks and TFLs, Ray is someone I am trying to own in any league where you start 3 or 4 LBs. 

                                                                                                                                        Other side of the ball!
Damien Williams, RB Miami Dolphins
Most people are telling you to run out and get Drake, I say Williams, hes bigger, better hands, pass protects and he's closer to Forte and Ayayi than Drake is. Drake, even in college was a change of pace back and a great special teamer not a lead dawg. Sorry Drake, your the bridesmaid not the bride just like champagnepapi.

Devin Funchess and Curtis Samuel, WR Carolina Panthers
Devin is the new WR1, that alone makes him a WR3 with upside. Curtis Samuel was drafted for the single reason of letting Kelvin Benjamin walk. with the injuries at RB and WR this year, flex is getting rough, put Samuel on your radar and waiver Funchess if he available. 


                                                                                                                                                 WEEK 8  WAIVERS ( Sorry a day late, network isssues)
 Mychal Kendricks, LB Phi Eagles
 Jordan Hicks is out for the season, so I expect Mychal Kendricks to be back to the IDPer we are want. He should be a good floor LB with top 20 potential, I see LB2 with upside for the forgotten one. 

Tramon Williams, CB, Arizona Cardinals 
Tramon has taken the starting gig in AZ and when your playing across the great P2, Patrick Peterson you're going to be picked on A-L-O-T, no Tramon you can't R-E-L-A-X! because teams won't be giving Tramon a break! he's going to get tackles and that's what you want in for CB, he will be a safe CB2 with CB1 upside. 

  Keenan Robinson, LB, New York Giants
Goodson might be out for awhile, Robinson who everyone expected to start( not me :P) is going to be their 3 down LB, he isnt  a star but slide into LB2 value going forward. 

Akiem Hick, DE, Chicago Bears
  Don't leave, trust me, I know...it's Akiem Hicks... I know we've been him looking at the wire and wondering, is he legit? it's far enough into the season he should be owned in ALL leagues playing 2 DEs, he's a DE2 for me. Now am I super confident he'll keep it up? no, but like Old man Peppers you have to add them play them until they stop producing. 

Jamal Adams, S, New York Jets
 This is a quick one, check if he is available, if not and your league is playing 2 safeties grab him, he's a DB2.

Bye week guys... oh man this week is gonna hurt boys!
Shawn Williams, S, Cincy Bengals-decent shot for a 5-7 tackle game
Anthony Barr, LB Vikes- I see a sack coming this week
Chris Jones, DT, KC Cheifs- he's getting pressure, getting in the backfield, maybe this week he breaks through. 
Robert Ayers, DE, Tampa Bay- Spence tried to play it out with his wrecked shoulder but couldn't, the 3 man rotation is now just 2. 
Christian  Jones, LB, Chi Bears- I don't generally like LB's vs NO, but they run a ton now, if you need a guy he is getting tackles.
Ryan Kerrigan, LB, Washington Redskins- He's getting after the  QB, I love sack LBs for bye weeks since they could hit big for you, he's a good bye week add.  





                                                                                                                                    WEEK 7  WAIVERS

David Irving , DT Dallas Cowboys
Check the last two weeks, I've been talking about him and hope you guys added him, with Dallas coming off a bye he's still a bit hidden and MUST be added in any league that uses a DT, he is going to be the DT1, for other leagues I have him as a high upside DL2.

Solomon, DT/DE SF 49ers
Arik Armstrong is out, Thomas is going to be getting a ton of playing time for at least the 3-4 weeks, the young DL is picking up the pace and is a must start in DT leagues and in the top 30 in DLs for me going forward.

​Matt Judon, LB, Baltimore Ravens 
He played 70 snaps and came through in a big way, 12 solo and 2 assisted with 2 sacks. The bye weeks are here and this is a guy you could plug in and see if he breaks out, he is not a given by any means but the increase in snaps was a good sign for the 2nd year player, we are all filling bye weeks and why not take a guy who might be breaking out considering we drop most of bye week fillers at the week end there is no risk, just remember he is an OLB so the 12  2 tackle line wouldnt be there consistently. 

Deone Bucannon, ILB Arizona Cardinals
Deone Bucannon is fully recovered from the injury that caused him to miss the first three games of the 2017 season. Bucannon had 7 tackles and an assist this week and played nearly 100% of the snaps, he's back as a solid LB2. 

Ray-Ray Armstrong, LB, San Francisco 49ers
So far this year he has been playing like an LB1 with 30 solos, 15 assisted on the year, a forced fumble, 2 INTs and a sack. He is still out there on alot of waiver wires since everyone expected Foster to come back any week and take his OLB  job back. WELL Bowman is in Oakland now and Armstrong and Foster are starting together, grab him now if hes available. 

Frank Clark ,DE Seattle Seahawks
With the season-ending injury to Cliff Avril in week 4, Frank Clark has been playing a good amount of snaps, he was productive last year, hes young and a beast and is not owned in enough leagues, check your wire as he is a DL2. 

Michael Pierce, DT, Baltimore Ravens 
He has been a solid tackler, I have mentioned him before as well and he is barely owned. If your league plays a DT position he is a very solid add, much like Stacks Harrison of the Giants hes got a good floor for a DT. 

Blake Martinez, LB, Green Bay Packers
He has been up and down for his career, so far this year he has been a very safe solid player and with 4 games in a row with at least 7 combined tackles he should be owned in all leagues as a LB2. 

T.J. Ward, SS Tampa Bay
The current safeties have been well playing for fantasy purposes but just look what happened last week, the TBay D got crushed by old man AP. Ward is a beast of a safety and will be back to playing 100% of the snaps this week, he should be a DB1 going forward.

Adrian Amos, S, Chicago Bears
 The young safety is playing great the last 3 weeks, hes looking a great fit in the starting unit and could be a DB2 going forward, the one thing to watch is his tackles change when Nick Kwiatkoski comes back.





                                                                                                                                                 WEEK 6 WAIVERS
Jabaal  Sheard, LB/DE IND
He's playing alot of snaps and playing well for the Colts, he had a bad week 1 and 3 but was productive weeks 2, 4,5. The last 2 weeks hes been racking up tackles and sacks, his bye week is week 11. I like having guys who get sacks and riding them through all my bye weeks, hoping they have 2 or 3 big weeks to help me win and Sheard fits that strategy. Bye weeks aside, how many  DE eligible guys have had 3+ games with 4+ tackles? if he can keep up his play the last few weeks he could be a DE1, I'm grabbing him to see what he does and starting him the next week 4 weeks to cover my bye weeks and DE and LB, transaction saver in leagues that have weekly or yearly transaction limits. 

Danny Trevathan, LB Bears
Suspension is over, he is back, he looked great being back as a starter and should be a LB2/1 player going forward. He's a must add, if dropped or still avaiable.

David Irving, DE/DT DAL 
Well I hope you were able to stash him using a FA add last week because him and Danny Trevathan are my #1 and #2 Waivers depending on what position you need more. BEAST, his size and ability are unreal AND he plays DT, if yahoo updates that this year or next year watch out!!! Currently he's a DE so I'll rank on as a high end DE2 with top 10 overall DE upside, the talent on that Dallas line combined with Irvings talent, DLaw and Irving are going to be tough to stop considering they line up side by side as LDE/LDT. 

A nthony Zettel, DT/DE DET
 In leagues with with a DT spot he's made himself a must start, Zettel and Geno Atkins have been the best DTs this year with Zettel the most consisent week 2 week player. Wathcing him on TV, Zettel looks like a freaking star, hes been a terror so far. DT1 and top 5 DT overall and a solid DE2. 

Lorenzo Alexander, LB BUF
Yup, he's doing it again this year! he's still not owned in enough leagues, he is going to finish as LB2/3 and in the top 20 again. 

Kyle Van Noy, LB PATS
Hightower is rushing the passer all the time, outside of Flowers the Pats DL hasn't been getting enough pressure. What does this mean for Van Noy? as the only 3 down LB who's not rushing the passer, he's getting tackle opportunity. LB3 range. 

Jahleel Addae, S, LAC
He was a pre-season sleeper and has played well but still sitting on FA in alot of leagues, hes a solid DB2  and top 15-20 safety, good tackler with decent opportunities for them. 

** Other side**
Golladay WR DET, Josh Gordon WR CLE are two guys I would add as FA  not waiver if available for stashs hoping they are producing at playoff time. Golladay has been dropped in alot of leagues so he might be there to grab for free and hold. 
Darren McFadden RB DAL everyone was shocked he wasnt active all season... I think this is why, they saved DMC for when Zeke had to miss games, hes fresh and I think hes the lead daaawg, RB2 for 6 weeks.




                                                                                                                                                 WEEK 5 WAIVERS
Jaylon Smith, LB DAL
With the injury to the Dallas LB core, Jaylon is locked into a full 3 down role, he has been getting better and better, he is an LB1/2 as long as Lee is out and could be a good rest of year add with his unreal ability.

Shaq Thompson, LB CAR
The last 2 weeks, Shaq-Fu has moved into a 3 down role, he's playing most of the snaps and the team has moved to him as their LB2 over Thomas Davis. He is young, fast, talented and is LB2 going foward. 

Corey James, LB OAK
The Raiders LB situation has been sorted out, James is playing almost 100% of snaps and has been very solid in the tackle department. He should be a safe floor LB2/3 going forward.  ** Update*** Week 5 James only play 34 snaps, Tyrell Adams randomly played 36, James did get nicked up in the game so I'm just watching the snap count next game to see if James is still playing 3 downs.  

Matthias Farley, S IND
 I mentioned him before, he had another great week, he's on pace for a top 5 finish. He's is a great situation, the tackles will be there and anything else he gets is gravy. DB1

Other adds I'd consider
Micheal  Pierce, DT, BALT   For leagues that use a DT, he's a solid add with his tackle numbers and talent.
David Irving, DE(Maybe DT??), DAL Him and DLaw could be a deadly combo, Collins is also a good DT so he will have alot of one on one match ups. He was crushing it in limited snaps this year, it sounds like he will play DT and DE so he is a guy to stash or watch. Yahoo says Mack is a DE because of the Raiders team designation on their website, Irving is listed as DT on NFL.com and DL on the Cowboys site as of today, he is projected to start DT for Dallas with Taco/DLaw/Crawford as the DEs. DE alone hes good, DT hes 100% THE #1 DT IN IDP!!!
Kyle Fuller CB CHI/Rashaan Melvin CB IND  CB's run low during bye weeks, both guys have been solid and could be used as bye week CBs this weeks in leagues you need to start 2CBs. 
Miles Killbrew S DET  Him and Micah Hyde look like similar players, top 25 range with top 15 potential. **Update**Lost alot of snaps to Wilson this week( Wilson went from 25 to 66 snaps),  more of a watch until he's playing 75% of snaps.




                                                                                                                                                 WEEK 4 WAIVERS
Danny Trevathan, LB Bears
The former IDP stud is the last man standing at LB for the bears, he looked good this and should be a LB2/1 player going forward. He's a must add.

Lawrence Timmons, LB Dolphins
The former IDP stud( from just days ago) is back, I have no idea why people dropped him without waiting on news, he's a run and grab right now, why are you reading this?!! GO!!!!! 

Tyvon Branch, DB AZ
Another blast from the past, ok, let's just stop thinking and go cave man here " See Cardinals tackling safety, add Cardinals tackling safety"....it's that simple, whoever has the role is beast, Jefferson left now Branch is sliding right into a top 10 finish. 

**There isn't alot of guys I'm running to add this week, but here are some guys I like and might add if I needed a position filled. 
Jon Bostic, LB IND Been eyeing him as a bye week filler since he got the starting job in Indy, hes an LB4 type who could might lose his job but he can fill in for you and give you a decent floor of production as long as he starts. 
Kendall Beckwith, LB TB  Now this is a guy unlike Bostic who is actually very talented, the only issues is he playing behind 2 of maybe the top 3 LBs in football. David is the best LB in football since he can rush, cover, tackle, he literally has no weakness in his game, so why would you get Beckwith? David is out for potentially 3-4 weeeks, with injuries at LB piling up this year, you could start Beckwith as an LB2 for as long as he's starting. 
Josh Jones, DB GB  I liked him to start next year and be an IDP beast, GB safeties produce numbers and he will be no expection. In week 3 Jones played all 61 snaps along with their regular starters, how did 3 safeties play 100% of snaps? Perry was out along with a mix of other GB players so Jones was used as a linebacker, it's hard to say what happens this week with Perry set to play with a ball cast, good add if you room to wait to see. 
Fowler/Ngakoue DEs, Jax
Any week this guys can get a sack, watching them play they both are all over the field and in the backfield. Ngakoue is still leading the way in snaps and is the clear starter, but Fowler is getting plenty of reps as well. Both guys can be DE2s and have top 25 DE finishes. Ngakoue is who I like more. 



_________________________________________________________________________WEEK 3 WAIVERS
Marcus Maye, S Jets
The Jet's LB's aren't great on either side of the ball and Adams is the name everyone is talking about BUT Maye has racked up the tackles the first couple of weeks, he's fast, hard hitting and has good ball skills, he could be a very very good IDP safety.

Matthias Farley, S IND
Anytime you have a safety on a horrible defense  combined with a O that can't stay on the field you have an IDP star. The Colts D is on the field all the time, their LB's are brutal, their DL is bad, Farley is most likely to lead ALL DB's in tackles, he isnt a great player but he can tackle and is in a great situation. 

Anthony Barr LB MIN
He is a mix of stats, so far he's been getting good tackle numbers, it's not a given that continues but when he's getting tackles he's a very good LB for fantasy. There are alot of LBs who might be out this week so he is a LB3/4 this week at least.

Ron Parker, S KC
He is coming off a horrible week but he has top 10 DB upside with Berry out, he did before he can do it again. 

Ziggy Ansah, DE,DET
If he is not owned in your league he better be, just freaking check!!! he is a DE1/2.

Noah Spence, DE TB
Been pushing him all summer, kid is ready to explode and started off with a bang week 1,  10+ sacks+other big plays coming, DE2. 

De'Vondre Campbell LB, ATL
Aggressive LB who has been all over the field, I'm not sold on him in this system but this week with many big name potentially out and not alot of LB's starting slow he is worth an add this week if you have room.

                                                                                                                                     Other side of the ball!!!!
Rashard " Hollywood" Higgins
Quick, good hands, runs good routes, no other WR's to  catch on the ball on his team for now. He is a poor mans Diggs, until Josh Gordon is back he should be their leader in targets. ALSO....Grab Josh Gordon if you have a bench or stash spot!!!!

Chris Carson/Alex Collins/Samaje Perine/ Alvin Kamara RB
All guys I mentioned last week,
Chris Carson has taken the role as the top RB in Seattle.
Alex Collins is more talented than West and younger, he won't give up that job, Buck Allen will get his targets and catches but it's at least a 50/50 split with Collins getting the inside running and goalline work.
Samaje Perine is playing for Fat Rob Kelley who might be out this week and longer, he is also better than Kelley so I don't think he loses the job once Kelley is back unless he fumbles again.
Alvin Kamara will be their hands down 3 down focus back by mid season, been saying it all off season!

Allen Hurns WR, JAC
He is the bigger play WR and is not far removed from 6 TD rookie season and 10 TD sophmore season, he could be a sleeper WR2 down the stretch. I am  big worried about Jalen Strong being claimed off waivers, if Jalen gets his head out of his A** he could be a very good WR with his hands and strength, 

                                                                                                                                                         Week 2 Waivers
B.J. Goodson, LB , NYG
I've been hyping this guy all offseason, get on him, great tackler, this was maybe the best game he will have all year but he is worth adding and starting, hes an LB2/3 with low end LB1 upside. 

Ron Parker, S, KC
The last time Berry was out of the KC lineup, he ended the year as top 10 DB, he's great tackler and will again be a top 10 safety again.

LaMarcus Joyner LAR/Jordan Poyer BUF, S,CB( Aka cheat codes!)
Anytime you have starting safties with CB eligibilty, you must own them an any league where you start a CB, simple, they are cheat codes since they have a good floor for tackles that most CBs don't. I mentioned both those guys before, grab them. 

Terrell Suggs, LB, BAL
In a  big play league when healthy, Suggs is elite, in a regular tackles based league he is a LB3/4 who will have some big games that could steal you a week or two. Either way he's healthy again and worth starting any all leagues using 3-4 LBs. 

DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, DAL
He is a stud, last year he was hurt and didn't show his true level, I seen him as a DE1/2 in any league, he gets tackles, TFLs and sacks.

Dante Fowler Jr./Yannick Ngakoue DEs, Jags
This is more a buy and hold if you can afford it move. I like Ngakoue more, he seems to make plays,  FFs, Sacks, TFLs, both guys are great rushers but will either get enough tackles to be elite? how is playing time and snaps going to go? from what I seen it looks like they are rotating in but with the talent on the Jag's Defense it seems everyone will be freed up, I mean who do you double? CC? Telvin? Jack? Fowler? Ngakoue? Jackson? this is the BEST DL in football!... I'd gamble on one this week if you have bench space and see if you end up getting a star on your hands.

Darron Lee, LB NYJ
3 down LB, on a bad D combined with a bad O, he'll get alot of tackle of tackle opportunities, he should be an LB3 with upside. 

Trey Flowers, DE, NE
Another guy I've been pushing all offseason, get him!!!!

Shaq Griffin, CB, SEA & Trae Waynes Min
He's playing across Sherman/Rhodes, QB's are gonna throw at him alot and he's a solid tackler, hes a safe solid CB1/2. Wayne I was pushing preseason....11 total tackles game 1.

                                                                                                                 Other side of the ball!!!!!!
***BREAKING**----Alex Collins, RB, promoted
Collins has the talent to take West's role, they brought in Langford and picked Collins over him. 4.0 AND 3.7 is the  YPC of the Ravens back, he could and will steal the role....."Beast Mode Jr" is about to take West's job, look out Terrence! 

Tarik Cohen, RB, CHI
Might be one of his best games all year, but he's going to get between 10-15 carries/catches, with the injuries at WR, Glennon will dump off alot. DO NOT expect him to start, Howard is a better rusher, Howard is still good, he will be the banger, he will get more TDs. Cohen has nice change of pace and pass catching role that will make him a flex most weeks. 
Alvin Kamara, RB, NO
Another guy I've be talking up, Payton gave up next years 2nd round pick to him, he could be a flex sooner rather than later, grab him, hold him, watch him. 
Kenny Golladay, WR,  DET
1) Remember when that Victor Cruz guy made big play after big play and your ignored his preseason?
2) Remember when Calvin Johnson got a ton of balls because he was big and went after the ball?
3) Matthew Stafford on the MNF pregame, he's big, he's fast, he goes up and grabs the ball, we're gonna him the ball somehow, he just knows how to go get the football..... Stafford loves tossing up jump balls and think's this kid can get those balls, he could be a rookie we all regreting not taking in waivers. 
Samaje Perine/Chris Carson, RBs
Carson has looked like the best Seattle RB all preseason, Rawls can't stay healthy, Lacy can't stay skinny or mobile, stash him. 
Rob Kelley didn't do anything, they won't keep playing Kelley if plays the play he's played and he will because Kelley isn't good. Perine will take over as the 1st and 2nd down back by week 4, been saying it all off season. Stash him. 
Charles Clay, TE, BUF
He'll get catches, top 15 TE finish, nothing special but will be a safer play then Bennett, Ebron, Fleener, Henry and some of the other sexy sleeper TEs out there. 

                                                                                                                                                         Week 1 Waivers

T.J. Ward, SS Tampa Bay Bucs
Signed by the Buc's as an FA just yesterday, he will be the starting SS week 1, he is still great tackler and will fit right into the Tampa Bay Defense, he should have some nice numbers playing in Tampa and could be a top 10 DB again.

Kevin Minter, ILB Cincinnati Bengals
He should be locked into a 3 down role for Burfict's 3 game suspension. He may or may not keep that role for the season, whoever plays better between him and Nick Vigil during those 3 games gets the 3 down spot alongside Vontaze Burfict. 

Chris Jones, DT, KC Chiefs
He was a beast when he started last season, he's young, talented and playing DE/DT which gives him a great shot to be the DT1/2 overall this year and alot of people slept on him and didn't draft him. 

Brandon Marshall LB, Broncos
Healthy and starting as the 3 down linebacker again, he should get a 100 tackles, he's not drafted in enough leagues as a solid LB3.

B.J. Goodson LB New York Giants
Has the 3 down role in New York, aggressive tackler, should be a solid LB3 as well. 

Trae Waynes, Robert Alford, Eli Apple, A.J Bouye
For leagues that use 1 or 2 CBs, all of thoese guys are playing in good situations across from great CBs, they should get a good amount of targets coming there way so tackle numbers should be safe. 

Rico Gathers, Raekwon Mcmillan, Derek Rivers, Denzel Perryman
If you have IR spots, all these guys are great guys to add. All 4 guys will start next year and be high-mid round picks, Denzel will be an asset at the end of this year for IDP. I drafted  Rivers and , Gathers, McMillian in my dynasty draft and now I have 3 open spot to sign players, Kicker and CB, who positions that are  up and down. 

                                                                                                                                      Others side of the ball!

ay Cutler, Miami Dolphins​ ​
At age 34, Cutler is always going to have his bad habits, but his aggressive play could be a nice change of pace for the Dolphi​ns after years of Ryan Tannehill’s risk-averse style.  Cutler will offer streaming appeal more weeks than not. His first Dolphins game is against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week who's safeties have not be good, T.J. Ward was added by the Buc's to help.
 
Sam Bradford, Minnesota Vikings 
You’ll never be excited to start him but will rarely regret it. Bradford has a friendly matchup with the New Orleans Saints, an opener. He has good weapons, with Cook, Murray, Rudolph, Diggs,Treadwell, Thielen and he does not make bad choices so he won't kill you but in good match ups he might give you a nice boost.


Darren Sproles/Smallwood, Philadelphia Eagles 
If your desperate for a week 1 play, let's say you had Doug Martin, Gore, Zeke or other RB's you're unsure of, it might be worth taking a shot on one of these backs to see if they produce value. 

Jamaal Charles, Denver Broncos 
Charles looked fast and healthy in the small preseason action he got. There are red flags with Charles, now 30 years old but CJ Anderson hasn't shown he's an elite talent or able to stay productive for an entire season. Charles is a bench stash who could end up becoming the lead back if C.J Anderson faulters. 

Shane Vereen, New York Giants 
 His role is safe in Ben McAdoo’s offense, he will be the pass-catching back while Paul Perkins is the main rusher. He should carry decent PPR value if he stays healthy.

Matt Brieda, San Francisco & Chris Carson Seattle
Both guys I think will get carries this week and both are in FA in alot of leagues, I would grab them. Both coaching staff's love these guys and they are playing behind backs who aren't healthy very ofte

Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks
He looks like the WR2, when healthy he's shown flashes a big play threat, he's young and talented and could becoming a WR3 this year, he's worth a shot with his pedigree. 

Laquon Treadwell, Minnesota Vikings
People haven't noticed but he has been the #1 outside WR, Diggs and Treadwell is where Bradford was looking in the preseason. Bradford himself said Treadwell has some of the best hands he's seen. GUYS!! He's only a year 2 player!!! he's not a bust yet!! Now that you dropped that notion and realized how young he is, he was drafted as the best WR in last years class, with, great hands, good size, good speed and fearless game, he could be there best WR this year and he will be better than Thielen. WR3 finish could be in the cards for him.
