We’re virtually performed with the bane of fantasy soccer house owners’ existence — the bye weeks. But on the subject of the waiver wire, bye weeks will be useful.

Owners who discovered themselves in a jam over the previous few weeks could have minimize some worthwhile gamers as a result of they had been on their bye. Look to see if QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Dion Lewis or WR Danny Amendola had been dropped final week as a result of they weren’t taking part in. Ditto for kickers and defenses.

The greatest pickup suggestions final week had been operating again Kenyan Drake and huge receiver Robby Anderson. See in the event that they’re nonetheless out there earlier than testing the remainder of this week’s checklist.

Recommended bids primarily based on a free agent acquisition price range (FAAB) of $100 for the season. 

BEST BETS

WR Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans ($16). After lacking six weeks with a hamstring harm, the No. 5 general choose returned to motion on Sunday and caught two pbades for 28 yards. Those numbers do not leap off the stat sheet, however he has game-breaking expertise and could possibly be an element down the stretch as he will get extra concerned within the offense.

WR Josh Doctson, Washington Redskins ($13). The Redskins’ receiving corps have underachieved all season, however at the very least Doctson has made some performs — similar to his diving catch within the remaining minutes vs. Seattle that arrange the successful landing. They’d be silly to disregard his expertise going ahead.

WR Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams ($10). Pay for the long run, not the previous. Woods hadn’t scored a landing all season earlier than breaking out with two (amongst his 4 catches for 70 yards) in Week 9. Don’t be blinded by the TDs; Woods’ 5 targets had been the fewest he is had in a recreation since Week 2.

WR Terrance Williams, Dallas Cowboys ($9). Dez Bryant’s knee and ankle accidents will have the best impression on Williams’ fantasy worth. With Bryant leaving final week’s recreation early Williams caught 9 pbades for 141 yards. However, he is additionally coping with a knee harm of his personal.

WR Marquise Goodwin, San Francisco 49ers ($eight). Pierre Garcon is out for the remainder of the season with a neck harm, so somebody has to take over because the No. 1 receiver. The lightning-fast Goodwin has big-play potential, however has solely hauled in 41% of his targets. 

REPLACEMENTS

RB Devontae Booker, Denver Broncos ($eight). The Denver operating recreation has become a three-headed monster with C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Booker all getting touches. Even although he gained solely 30 complete yards in Week 9 vs. Philadelphia, Booker has been the simplest again — and the New England Patriots determine to be a a lot better matchup this week.

WR Deonte Thompson, Buffalo Bills ($7). The addition of trade-deadline acquisition Kelvin Benjamin will minimize into Thompson’s targets, however his seven catches for 81 yards and a landing final Thursday could badist hold Thompson on the sector. 

WR Adam Humphries, Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($5). Mike Evans should serve a one-game suspension this week, so Humphries will probably be extra concerned within the offense. Worth noting: The New York Jets have allowed essentially the most pbading touchdowns to huge receivers within the league.

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($5). WIth Jameis Winston probably out a number of weeks with a shoulder harm, Fitzpatrick could also be one of the best quarterback out there on the waiver wire. He’s a possible bye-week fill-in, however not far more.

RB Corey Clement, Philadelphia Eagles ($5). The Eagles are on bye this week, so Clement’s value will not be very excessive — regardless of his three touchdowns in Week 9. The rookie is not going to remove snaps from Jay Ajayi, however he could have labored his approach into the No. 2 position.

SPECULATIVE PICKUPS

QB Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota Vikings. Finally able to be activated after lacking all of final season as a result of knee surgical procedure, Bridgewater will badume the No. 2 quarterback position for now. Case Keenum has been advantageous because the starter, so solely choose Bridgewater up as a hedge for the long run.

WR Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns. Gordon hasn’t performed in an NFL recreation since Dec. 2014, however fantasy house owners simply cannot overlook his league-leading 1,646 yards and 9 TDs in 2013. You’ve been warned to not rely on him, however in deep leagues there’s actually no danger to choosing him up … simply in case.
