PRESQUE ISLE, Me. (WAGM) - What do Marden's and the fantasy football waiver wire have in common? Yeah there are bargains to be had, but only the truly special hunters find that diamond in the rough. Here are three waiver wire adds that will be the sparkle in your eye this weekend.
Number one overall pick in the draft and number one in my fantasy football heart this weekend at QB. Baker Mayfield at home against the Falcons. Last week he threw for just under 300 yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs and he finally realized that hey this Duke Johnson guy can make plays. Expect good output against a Falcon's defense which is in the bottom 10 in the league in passing yards allowed, QB rating and touchdowns.
Not much to be found on the waivers these days at running back, but with Chris Thompson already ruled out for this weekend and you need a Flex play, give Kapri Bibbs a look. Bibbs has been acting as the pass-catching option out of the Redskins backfield. In the last two games Thompson missed, Bibbs scored a touchdown. The Skins play Tampa Bay, a team which treats playing defense like kids treat eating broccoli, they ain't havin' it.
I saw Matthew Berry do this on ESPN and I'm doing it too. No wide receivers and tight ends, just one pass catcher. Yes, Ed Dickson and his zero points last week was the straw which broke my back. I sat and stared at my TV on Sunday with a look that can only be described as vacantly agitated. But that's fantasy. This week, for the pass catcher
Pick up Tyrell Williams of the Los Angeles formerly and should be known as San Diego Chargers. Williams is on fire as of late. Four touchdowns in his last three games. Two games over 100 yards receiving. And to just make things sweeter, the Chargers are playing against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders are like that dude in your league who doesn't pay attention and starts players on their bye week. Yeah he's in the league, but nobody respects him and people in the league are constantly asking, why is he here?
