Waiver Wire Report

Week 3:

Join us live on YouTube, Tuesday’s at 7pm CT!

I think it is extremely important to make claims early in the season.  It is also important to save money for the playoff stretch as well, so spend wisely.  Waiver wires are different for everyone, so it’s difficult to make suggestions in regards to how much to spend on a given player or how to rank them in a standard waiver wire.  Please use your best judgement when making your claims, as you know your league-mates best and how they tend to spend or operate.  I’m ranking them them by position and by how much % Rostered they are on ESPN. The more ***** a player has, the more I like him as an add.

Feel free to contact me on Twitter @theFellowKGB with any questions.
