Waiver Wire Watch: Week 17

Week 16 was another COVID-19-induced nightmare, with fantasy playoff rosters looking like preseason DFS lineups. If you survived, congratulations and thank you for reading this article. Waivers are thin, but we offer a handful of helpful options below. Also, be sure to check out the site rankings on Tuesday and/or Wednesday before setting your waivers for this week. John Paulsen may unearth a few more "Sneaky Starts" by midweek as more news comes in.

In any event, good luck chasing that fantasy title.

Recommendations are based on a PPR-scoring, four-point passing touchdown, 12-team league, with roster percentages coming from Yahoo. Typically, we will not be writing up players who are rostered in over 50% of leagues. We may include them on the lists, though, as a friendly reminder to scan your waiver wire for those names. Free-agent budget recommendations are based on a standard $100 budget for the season. I try to mention when a player is a better streaming play (short-term/one-week starter) versus a long-term addition. Lastly, the great John Paulsen will edit this article every week and adjust rankings (and prices, starting next week), if necessary. Essentially, you’re getting two minds collaborating on this piece instead of one, so lucky you.
