* Note *
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 by position, with the best adds at the top of each list.
Feel free to contact me @theFellowKGB with any questions.
A.) QB1s, most likely owned: Lamar Jackson, Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins, Deshaun Watson, Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Josh Allen, Ryan Tannehill, Dak Prescott, Jameis Winston
B.) Potential QB1s: Jacoby Brissett, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo should all be owned, but if not, they all have potential QB1 matchups this weekend.
C.) Potential QB2s for Superflex: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Philip Rivers, Daniel Jones, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Derek Carr, Andy Dalton, Kyle Allen, Mitchell Trubisky, Gardner Minshew, Drew Lock, Devlin Hodges,
D.) Try to avoid these QBs: Dwayne Haskins, David Blough
