Player Waiver Wire Look Ahead

There's no better way to get an edge on next week's opponent than to start looking ahead to future matchups.

This report is intended to help you quickly find free agent pickups with good-to-great matchups in future weeks. By looking ahead to future weeks, we are able to spot and land players with great matchups a week or more ahead of other owners. Planning ahead gives us an edge and saves waiver priority or bidding bucks.

In order to accomodate all league sizes, we provide a large number of options that may or may not be available in your league. If players at the top of the list are not available in your league, simply keep reading down the list looking for avialable players.

 

For help with pickups for this week, see Waiver Wire Watch published on Mondays, Top Waiver Pickups for This Weekend published on Wednesdays, Sneaky Starts published on Fridays and of course the weekly rankings (see the home page).
