With time in the fantasy football regular season quickly running out, it’s time to make your last moves for the playoff push. Matchups become even more important now since waiver wire pickups need to contribute right away in order to be valuable. There’s also less reason to hold onto injured or ineffective players are who are cluttering your roster. Id you’re looking to make a move, here are the top options to target on the wire.
Each Tuesday right here on Fansided.com you can find the top 10 waiver wire pickups for the coming week. In each top 10, you’ll find at least one quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end as well as a team defense with a favorable matchup in case you are streaming defenses or looking for a one-week fill in.
Throughout the rest of the week, keep coming back to Fansided’s fantasy page where you’ll find continuing coverage and analysis to help you get the win you need in week 12 to get you a better seed in the playoffs or make that last second playoff push.
All players on this list or in the “best of the rest” on the final page are available in at least 50% of ESPN leagues as of Monday and their ownership percentages are included in parentheses. That means that some of the players on the list in the past (last week’s post available here) like Nick Foles (pictured above), Coby Fleener, Riley Cooper, Jarrett Boykin, Keenan Allen, Zac Stacy, Harry Douglas, Jordan Reed, Danny Woodhead, Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Cameron, Julius Thomas, Chris Ivory, and Julian Edelman are no longer eligible to appear even though they still make good pickups if they’re available.
