The Home of Fantasy Sports Analysis

Mid-Week Waiver Wire Watch List

This weekly waiver wire report is designed to provide quick insights into players who may be available on your waiver wire in 10-12 team fantasy baseball leagues.

Each week, we will provide a list of “Must-Adds” (ahem, players who shouldn’t be on the waiver wire) as well as some “Deeper-Dives” who should be considered to fill a specific need or to plug an open roster spot.

Anyone mentioned on the “Deeper-Dives” list should be considered a must-add for deeper leagues (15-30 team leagues) or could be considered a possible player to target in trade. Double-Downs are players whom have previously been mentioned that should be considered in all formats. It should be noted we will never repeat a player from previous reports as a “Must-Add” or “Deeper-Dive”. Generally speaking, players on this list will have a consensus ownership of 25% or less.
