If we learned anything from Week 6 it’s that being proactive and actively engaging the waiver wire is vital towards building a championship fantasy football roster. Week 6 featured several prominent performances from players scooped up in free agency and the upcoming bye weeks only increases the odds of that happening again.

Here are the key low-owned players for fantasy football fans to be aware of ahead of Week 7, with our remaining FAAB spending recommendations.

Week 7 NFL byes: Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Chargers

Michael Thomas (WR) New Orleans Saints (33% FAAB) – Most likely, Thomas is rostered in your league, but if he happens to be available, make a strong bid. The Saints aren’t throwing the ball near as much as they have in the past but that could change when they get their WR1 back in the mix. Thomas is eligible to come off of IR this week but isn’t expected to play for another week or two. When he is active,  Thoma has the potential to be a difference-making weekly WR2 for fantasy managers who can afford to fill a bench spot.

Alex Collins (RB) Seattle Seahawks (20% FAAB) – The Seahawks placed Chris Carson on IR prior to Week 6. That means Carson will miss at least two more weeks. Collins filled in just fine, rushing 20 times for 101 yards and a score before getting hurt. As long as Carson is healthy and has the backfield to himself, he’s a weekly RB2. That may be only for two more weeks, but Carson is worth a strong FAAB bid, depending on…

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 6

It’s hard to believe we’re already preparing for Week 6. The 2021 NFL season is flying by and to complicate matters, the pesky bye weeks have arrived.

It’s hard to believe we’re already preparing for Week 6. The 2021 NFL season is flying by and to complicate matters, the pesky bye weeks have arrived.

In addition to bye weeks complicating free agency, myriad injuries are piling up, making Week 6 the most crucial waiver period so far.

Here are the top low-owned free agents for fantasy football managers to targets ahead of Week 6.

FAAB denotes free agent acquisition budget

Darrel Williams (RB) Kansas City Chiefs (15% FAAB) – Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s sprained left MCL will keep him out for several weeks. Darrell Williams now becomes the starting running back on a potent offense. Williams will split time with Jerrick McKinnon, but it’s Williams who would command most of the carries and fill the short-yardage role, giving him weekly RB2/3 value.

Kadarius Toney (WR) New York Giants (15% FAAB) – Toney blew up last week and will undoubtedly be one of the most popular waiver wire targets ahead of Week 6. But proceed with some caution. First, Toney was thrust into the lineup after Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard have been sidelined with hamstring injuries. Toney barely saw the field when Slayton and Shepard were active and both could be back as soon as this week. Secondly, New York could be without QB Daniel Jones after Jones suffered a scary concussion. One thing that works in Toney’s favor is that Kenny Golladay could be sidelined next, so there is a viable path to a permanent role, here. That’s why the FAAB recommendation is aggressive, but not over the top. UPDATE: Toney may have injured his ankle late in Sunday’s loss. It’s not a major injury but it adds a little uncertainty to the rookie’s Week 6 status.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 3

Two weeks have rapidly gone by but there is still plenty of football ahead. Whether you are winless or undefeated, it’s still early and the best way to make your fantasy football lineup better is to stay proactive on your league’s waiver wire.

Two weeks have rapidly gone by but there is still plenty of football ahead. Whether you are winless or undefeated, it’s still early and the best way to make your fantasy football lineup better is to stay proactive on your league’s waiver wire. Week 2 also had a ton of key injuries, so the waiver wire this week should be pretty wild.

Here are some low-rostered players to target ahead of Week 3, with how much of your remaining FAAB budget you should consider utilizing.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Budget

Justin Fields (QB) Chicago Bears (20% FAAB) – Generally, players owned in more than half of leagues aren’t mentioned, but if there’s a chance that Fields is available, grab him now. While Matt Nagy didn’t exactly give a ringing endorsement to Andy Dalton as his starter, Nagy and GM Ryan Pace have to know their jobs are on the line. Dalton has been serviceable but does not offer the athleticism or play-making skills that Fields can provide. It’s only a matter of time before the first-round sensation gets in the Bears’ lineup and never looks back. When that happens, Fields offers weekly QB1 upside as both a potent rushing threat and accurate passer who will only get better with more reps. Be proactive and make a strong bid for Fields now if he is still available.

Rondale Moore (WR) Arizona Cardinals (12% FAAB) – As much love as I have given to Rondale Moore throughout the summer, it’s hard to believe the dynamic rookie still only rostered in about half of fantasy leagues. Moore has displayed his elite speed and turned into a dangerous weapon out of the slot, adding a dimension that was missing with Larry Fitzgerald. As potent as Arizona’s offense is, Moore offers weekly WR3 value and has still not even hit the 50% snap rate yet. Insert rocket emoji, but not before you make an aggressive FAAB bid if you’re in a league filled with scrubs who aren’t FullTime Fantasy readers.

Zach Pascal (WR) Indianapolis Colts (9% FAAB) – Pascal was a strong waiver target last week and readers who went out and nabbed him got another strong outing. In two games, Pascal has snagged 9-0f-11 targets and is tied for the league lead with three TD grabs. If Carson Wentz (ankles) is forced to miss time, it would be an obvious downgrade for all of Indy’s wideouts. Regardless, Pascal has been in on over 90% of Indianapolis’s snaps in both games and should remain a big part of the offense.

K.J. Osborn (WR) Minnesota Vikings (8% FAAB) – Another slot receiver, Osborn has very quietly been racking up some solid numbers on just 51% of Minnesota’s snaps. Osborn has already recorded 12 receptions in two games and topped 75 yards in both of Minnesota’s defeats. As long as the Vikings are involved in high-scoring shootout games, Osborn has the potential to be a decent WR4/FLEX fill-in. He’s worth a modest bid.

Zack Moss (RB) Buffalo Bills (7% FAAB) – A healthy scratch in Week 1, Moss debuted in style last week, punching in a pair of touchdowns and racking up 10 touches. However, Moss lost a fumble and was only in on 18 snaps. He’s clearly behind Devin Singletary on the depth chart but can have a viable role as a dual-threat red-zone weapon.

Cordarrelle Patterson (RB) Atlanta Falcons (6% FAAB) – Patterson has gotten seven rushing attempts in back-to-back games, while also…

Now that we’ve moved into the regular season, the best way to improve your championship odds is to remain proactive on your league’s fantasy football waiver wire.

Here are some low-rostered players to target ahead of Week 2, with how much of your remaining FAAB budget you should use.

FAAB denotes Free Agent Budget

Elijah Mitchell (RB) San Francisco 49ers (15% FAAB) – After Trey Sermon was a surprising healthy scratch, Raheem Mostert exited the game after two carries and Elijah Mitchell logged a 64% snap rate and turned 19 carries into 104 rushing yards and a score. The reason I’m not suggesting you go crazy and use all of your FAAB on Mitchell: Kyle Shanahan. San Francisco’s head coach could easily give Sermon the start next week, or go with JaMycal Hasty.. So while Mitchell is obviously a priority target, don’t blow all of your budget on such an unpredictable backfield.

Mark Ingram (RB) Houston Texans – (10% FAAB) – It was rumored that Ingram was Houston’s RB1 for some time and that’s exactly what we saw play out. Ingram started and received 26 carries- a dozen more than David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay combined. In all, Ingram ran for 85 yards and a score and should continue to start, but unless he turns back the clock and can improve his paltry 3.3 yards per carry figure from Sunday, Ingram isn’t going to be a consistent fantasy option for a Houston team that is likely to be trailing in most games.

Christian Kirk (WR) Arizona Cardinals (10% FAAB)- The Cardinals rotated Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore in but it seems like only a matter of time before both surpass A.J. Green in the pecking order. Green didn’t look much better than he did last season, while Kirk posted the No. 3 WR grade from Pro Football Focus, snagging all five of his targets for 70 yards and a pair of scores. Kliff Kingsbury won’t always go with so many four-wide sets, but Kirk made the case for replacing Green opposite DeAndre Hopkins.

Sterling Shepard (WR) New York Giants (9% FAAB) – Shepard played the most snaps (58) of any New York wideout and led the club in all receiving categories. While he will be hampered by QB Daniel Jones’s erratic play, Shepard is locked into a WR2 role and has weekly WR3/4 value, making him worth a decent FAAB bid.

Zach Pascal (WR) Indianapolis Colts (9% FAAB) – Pascal started in the slot and saw extensive action in Indy’s opening-week loss. Overall, Pascal was in on 69-of-76 snaps (91%) and looks like a lock to remain the club’s slot receiver. After hauling in 4-of-5 targets for 43 yards and a pair of touchdowns, Pascal is worth a respectable FAAB bid.

Tim Patrick (WR) Denver Broncos (8% FAAB) – Jerry Jeudy (ankle) could miss a significant amount of time….
