Waiver Wire Watch: Week 18
This is it. The final Waiver Wire Watch of the 2021-22 season. It has been a pleasure writing for all of you during this turbulent year. Hopefully, our recommendations in this space helped many of you into the fantasy playoffs and beyond. I myself fell short in the postseason in my leagues, but it was a fun year nevertheless. And in the end, that’s what fantasy is all about -- fun. I wish all of you a fun-filled 2022. Talk to you all again when the next season nears. Until next time.
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.
