Your lungs are burning as you bend over to catch your breath. Snot trickles to your upper lip and the icy wind whips around causing it to freeze almost instantly. We’ve been hiking for 2 weeks but it already feels like an eternity. As the blood rushes to your forehead, you wonder how this seemed like a good idea 6 months ago while surfing the internet in your posh apartment in the city.

Of course, you know it’s too far to turn back, but the end is nowhere in sight. All that can be done is to make the best of the journey and put one foot in front of the other. The crunch of the snow betrays me as I saunter over and remind you “The next checkpoint is getting close where we can add some RBs for the week ahead.” Blinking, you stand up and look over the trail where the ridge meets the sun and feel a glimmer of hope. There’s fight left in you.

Each Tuesday, as your Waiver Sherpa, I will list intriguing players owned in no more than 30% of leagues per ESPN. For a primer on additional roster management and waiver wire principals read this. At the end I will also point out some players that can be safely dropped for a better option.

Priority will be classified in 4 ways:

HIGH – immediate starter on most teams and trade bait at worst; be aggressive!

MEDIUM – probable FLEX-level starter right now; add if you have need at the position.

LOW – still a lottery ticket, but showing signs of growth; add if you have bench room.

FREE – likely can add post-waivers without using FAAB or priority if your league allows.

Players with “PPR+” designation mean they will be extra useful in formats that reward receptions.

First Aid Kit

Players set to inherit a bigger role due to injury

Mason Rudolph, QB, PIT (priority HIGH in multi-QB leagues)Ben Roethlisberger left Sunday’s game at halftime with a non-contact elbow injury. Any QB who inherits a starting job is relevant for 2QB and superflex leagues. Rudolph is in his 2nd year out of Oklahoma State where he led an explosive offense and enjoyed a 97th percentile yards per attempt of 10.7. We don’t have much to go on at the pro level but Rudolph would have quality weapons at his disposal and is worth a bench add in leagues were multiple QBs are viable. UPDATE – Surgery for Big Ben, season over. 

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, NO (priority HIGH in multi-QB leagues)Drew Brees left Sunday’s game with a hand injury, but it must have been significant as the game was well within reach when he was ruled out. Bridgewater was very unexciting in his time, failing to unlock his weapons Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. This isn’t the first time he has disappointed under center for the Saints. In 2018 he started week 17 and recorded only 118 passing yards on 22 attempts. Somehow, despite the team context, I find myself less excited about Bridgewater than I do Rudolph. UPDATE – Brees will miss 6 weeks at minimum, surgery confirmed on ligament in his throwing thumb. 

Taysom Hill, QB, NO (priority LOW/FREE in multi-QB leagues) – Crazier things have happened… 

Jaylen Samuels, RB, PIT (priority HIGH pending James Conner’s status) – After James Conner left in the 4th with a knee injury, Samuels was the first man up. Last season when Conner missed 3 game Samuels averages 18 touches a game and finished as a high RB2 in each contest. We know he is versatile and can function well as a receiver, but despite limited college experience carrying the football he was 24th in true rush yards per carry in 2108. If Conner’s injury is serious, Samuels makes for a break-the-bank type acquisition and is a quality RB2 immediately. Benny Snell is lurking but he is not a dynamic runner and I think this would be mostly Samuels’ backfield. UPDATE – Initial reports after further tests say the injury is “not serious.” That is encouraging to Conner owners and may lower the cost for Samuels, but Ill be adding him. 

Darwin Thompson, RB, KC (priority MEDIUM pending Williams and McCoy’s status) – The box score will show that Darwin Thompson got 1 carry Sunday, the last play of the game. More importantly, this was because Damien Williams and Lesean McCoy left with knee and ankle injuries, respectively. You don’t need me to tell you how significant this is, but should Darwin slide into meaningful touches he is an immediate starter for your fantasy team. Even if just one of the KC backs miss time, Darwin is an add as he should presumably get 10+ touches. If they both miss time, plug-and-play Thompson and log off. UPDATE – McCoy underwent an MRI on his ankle but results are not known at press time.

Nelson Agholor, WR, PHI (priority HIGH pending Jeffrey and Jackson’s status) – Shocking to see Alshon on the sidelines with a soft tissue injury, isn’t it? He left the game with a calf and Desean Jackson missed most of the contest with a groin so Nelson Agholor stepped right in and consumed 11 targets for an 8-107-1 line. The clear lead Eagles WR by default, he immediately jumps into a WR2/3 role for your fantasy team if the other WRs miss time.

Devin Smith, WR, DAL (priority LOW) – Late breaking news out of Dallas is that Michael Gallup will have meniscus surgery and miss the next 2-4 weeks. Smith would likely be the next man up in the new look Cowboys offense. His college yards per reception was an astonishing 28.2, but has yet to be healthy since being drafted in the 2nd round by the Jets in 2015. I am treating Dallas like I used to treat New Orleans where I just want any piece of the pie. Smith could be a fantasy WR3/4 while Gallup is out.

J. J. Arcega-Whiteside & Mack Hollins, WR, PHI (priority FREE) – These 2 are intriguing should Jeffrey and/or DJax miss games. Hollins is a size/speed specimen with a 90th percentile speed score who has yet to live up to his measurables. JJAW was a #draftTwitter darling, a rare prospect who pops from both film and metrics perspectives. Hollins got the most immediate run snagging 5 of 8 targets for 50 yards, but I would rather take a cheap stab at JJAW. Either is worth an end-of-bench pickup to watch and see.

Powerbars

High calorie options to grab for a boost

Josh Allen, QB, BUF (priority MEDIUM) – Whatever you think about his actual quarterback talent, there’s no denying Allen is an exciting fantasy asset. So far he has improved his biggest deficiency by completing 64% of his passes through 2 games. Allen will give you 4 turnover games like he did in week 1, but he can also make up for it with his running and YOLO downfield attitude. To put this add in context, I would start Allen over Cam Newton right now.

Raheem Mostert & Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, SF (priority LOW) – We knew the 49ers backfield would be a committee and Kyle Shanahan did not disappoint! Three backs got at least 10 carries with both Mostert and Wilson also receiving 4 targets each. Breida is the leader, but his size prohibits a true feature role so this split will continue. Mostert takes priority given his 47% snap share on Sunday, although it was a blowout. Wilson was pretty unimpressive on a per touch basis but was given goal line work, making him a desperation RB3 until Coleman is back. 

Terry McLaurin, WR, WAS (priority HIGH) – He comes in slightly above the 30% ownership threshold but why is he less owned than James Washington!? I wouldn’t be a good Sherpa if I didn’t strongly demand that you add him. Yes, you. Right now. After finishing as the WR13 in his first professional game, Scary Terry showed us that he is for real in week 2. Despite drawing Dallas’ best cornerback, he led his team in targets and scored another touchdown on a beautiful back shoulder snag at the goal line. He looks to be a solid WR2/3 option for the rest of the season.  

Deebo Samuel, WR, SF (priority MEDIUM) – Looks like Dante Pettis may finally be #cancelled. After boasting that his groin injury was behind him, Pettis played 49% of the snaps but received 0.0 targets. Playing less snaps (40%), Deebo led the team with 7 targets good for a 5-87-1 line. While old for a prospect at 23, he is a strong athlete with an 86th percentile SPARQ score.  It appears that in the early going, SF will rotate WRs in different packages but I’m happy to take their target leader off the wire. This should be a good offense, and while George Kittle is a mainstay, the second option in their passing game can slide in as a WR3 for you. 

Demarcus Robinson, WR, KC (priority MEDIUM) – Another Sunday, another secondary KC pass catcher with a week-winning score. DRob toasted Oakland for 6-177-2, but waiver points don’t count and he is only rostered in 1% of ESPN leagues. While Robinson is certainly an add, he was third on the Chiefs in targets despite playing 91% of the snaps. This is still going to be the Kelce/Watkins show until Tyreek Hill returns. Think of Robinson as a premium WR3/4 for boom weeks when you need a fill in.

Preston Williams, WR, MIA (priority LOW) – I make no promises that you will ever feel comfortable starting Williams, but the facts are he has 9-87-1 in 2 games as a professional after going undrafted. The reports all along have been that he was not undrafted due to a lack of talent, as he posted a massive 45% hog rate at Colorado State. The Dolphins are bad… I mean reallllllly bad, and Williams may be the most exciting garbage time all-star in 2019 before it’s all said and done.

Chris Conley & DJ Chark, WR, JAX (priority LOW) – The Gardner Minshew era got off to a rocky start on the road but he acquitted himself well and looked to these 2 WRs often. While all the buzz heading into 2019 was on Dede Westbrook, his old breakout age and low SPARQ score (19th percentile) kept my expectations low. Now through 2 games he has turned 11 targets into a 6-33-0 line. But this isn’t a Westbrook OR a Minshew blurb! Conley and Chark both own exciting athletic ability and have each scored a TD so far in 2019. If you need a solid bench WR4 as bye weeks come up, take a look at either of these two big pay WRs.  

Diontae Johnson, WR, PIT (priority FREE) – I was [this close] to recommending a Moncrief drop last week after his abysmal Sunday Night Football game, and he followed that up with a bench-worthy performance in week 2. Enter 3rd round pick Diontae Johnson who turned 4 targets into 1 catch for 17 yards. Of course those stats don’t move the needle but the fact that there is a potential opening on the outside for the Steelers should move it a little. He’s an end of bench stash WR5 for now, but could develop with an organization known for their WRs.

Stragglers

Leave these guys behind, it’s time to move on

Mike Davis, RB, CHI – After a promising week 1, Davis took a major backseat to David Montgomery in week 2. He tallied 3 carries for one yard and didn’t see a target. To be fair, it was tough sledding all around for Chicago backs and Montgomery didn’t exactly light it up. But DMont got 19 touches and scored on his goal line carry. Personally, I am comfortable dropping Davis now, but I can understand holding him as a handcuff.

Justin Jackson, RB, LAC – He played 27% of the snaps in a slow, close game and lost out on a 1 yard TD plunge to Austin Ekeler. The thought heading into the season was this would be a 50/50 committee with Ekeler more of the receiver but Jackson has only seen 13 carries to Ekeler’s 29. In a deep league, JJax is a nice handcuff stash but for most leagues he’s probably droppable now.  

Mohamed Sanu, WR, ATL – He has seen 13 targets in 2 games but turned them into 73 scoreless yards. Sanu is clearly the 3rd or even 4th option for Matt Ryan with Ridley clearly taking over the WR2 spot. I like my bench with high upside players and I just think you can do better, friend.

Keke Coutee, WR, HOU – The additions of Kenny Stills and Duke Johnson have really dampened Coutee’s prospects. Due to his short routes, he would need large volume to be relevant even in PPR and I don’t see that happening without an injury (or 2) ahead of him. 

Donte Moncrief, WR, PIT – He was awful for 2 weeks and benched in real life. That means dropped in fantasy.

Dante Pettis, WR, SF – We had high hopes. It doesn’t appear Kyle Shanahan agrees. I’m OK with a drop.

    super flex league, have wentz/mariota/trubisky, we’ve seen mariota have this floor before, and his coach like always is a giant idiot. trubisky has looked worse BUT he looked far better last year and is younger, so saying we KNOW his floor is low is harder to do compared to mariota. drop mariota for rudolph (6th best QB last year for rookies by grades).

    2. if yes to above bid how much out of 100?

      What a BOOF says:

      I don’t think you can rank Rudolph ahead of Trubisky even with Trubisky being bad so far

      Mariota is in the bottom of the QB barrel so Rudolph probably sits in that group. Id have a tough time bidding a lot on Rudolph because you don’t have a clear need and hes not an obvious upgrade.

      You’d probably have to go $25 or more because you will be competing against the guys that lost Brees/Roeth and they will need to be aggressive

    Good stuff Boof

    14 team std league 0-2

    My last starting wr is Sutton right now after a trade with only Miller on the bench….would you

    1) use your #3 waiver priority on Demarcus, Deebo, Devin or Agolor Goodwin or Beasley
    2) Use my priority in Dissly as I have Higbee at te with Henry down
    3) hold onto it and grab whoever is left (maybe Witten and one of the wr leftover)

    Thanks man

    • Mr. A Knife says:
      (link)

      higbee for dissly, then miller drop for any of those, i’ll let him deal with the order of em.

    • What a BOOF

      What a BOOF says:
      (link)

      The issue here is not who to drop but burning the priority. You’re close to #1 and I think you should hold unless you can add a clear starting upgrade. If youre 0-2, Deebo isn’t saving you… you need to wait for a big time RB injury Id imagine and you’ll need that #1 pri. At 0-2 you are playing week to week, just get 1 win and press on so lets think about matchups THIS WEEK not a season long add.

      Agholor is the best add with Jeffrey already pessimistic on playing next week. Look at your team, look at your week 3 opponent. If you think you can win with no adds, I would hold. Sutton faces GB which could require the Broncos to air it out a bit. Agholor gets Detroit this week so that’s probably going to be a slow/ugly game like the Chargers/Lions was. Not sure Agholor is an obvious upgrade over Sutton.

      I like Deebo a lot but Sutton is similar in expectation I think both now and ROS.

      Miller absolutely droppable, but if I was in your shoes I would wait and probably see if I was able to add Devin Smith or JJAW post-waivers for free.

      Higbee is a problem, but again… if you think you can sneak Witten in post-waivers and not burn the priority I would do that. I don’t see Dissly as much better than Old Man Witten. Dissly got 1 more target week 2 but is in a less exciting offense. Witten is being utilized near the goal line and that’s all you really care about unless you have an elite TE

      All these adds this week are nice supplementary adds but I don’t see any league winners, especially since Conner is apparently fine

        Also, Dallas gets Miami’s “d” this week… Devin Smith not a bad flier and I’d be shocked if you couldn’t add him after waivers run

        • Nightpandas says:

    Deebo or James Washington moving forward? Rudolph and Washington were teammates at OK State. Are you believing that narrative?

    • Mr. A Knife says:
      (link)

      even if believe it still deebo.

    • What a BOOF

      What a BOOF says:
      (link)

      I’d say Deebo

      We don’t know JWash’s role, word all offseason was that he was running behind JuJu as a second slot option. Regardless of the shower narrative, I don’t think he usurps JuJu so now youre hoping the coaching staff playing him out of position to accommodate Rudolph.

      Stranger things have happened but Deebo is getting heavy looks in a good offense. That seems to be the better bet.

      • Joel says:
        (link)

        Thanks for the insight. Separate question: Are you worried about Baker Mayfield? He hasn’t looked very accurate and isn’t running at all. Should I drop Rex Burkhead and put in a claim for Jimmy G? Probably not going to get him…

        • What a BOOF

          What a BOOF says:
          (link)

          I think some bumps could have been expected with Baker. Id stay the course for now.

          You shouldn’t have been counting on much running from him, maybe 2-20 type days not significant running

    Better pickup penny or Mostert?

    • What a BOOF

      What a BOOF says:
      (link)

      This is a good Q

      Id have to say Mostert who was utilized in both run/pass game and looked explosive

      Penny had one big TD run but otherwise was 9 for 25 yards and 1 target to Carson’s 3 targets.

    Morning bud, having a good start to the fantasy season (no injuries/2-0) in my 12-teamer standard scoring.

    Quick question, my expendable bench includes Valdes-Scantling, R Jones & Kyler Murray (I have Lamar). Would you drop any of the above to pickup replacement bench depth? Let me know who you are cutting & then rank the below guys to target…Also its FAAB & I have $89 left (Got McLaurin for $11 last week) so I think I’ll keep my bidding rather conservative to keep $$ in the reserves…

    P Barber, D Robinson, D Samuel, N Agholor, M Goodwin, G Bernard, Allison, Gore

    • What a BOOF

      Id be fine cutting RoJo for

      DRob, Deebo, Agholor ($7-10)
      Gore ($5-7)

      Leave the rest alone

      Don’t cut Murray! Would rather float some trade offers first he should net something especially with 2 teams losing starters this week

      • Nick says:

        agreed on Murray, just figured I’d mention him since I do have Lamar who is starting hot. Thanks for the quick reply!

    Did I play myself with this trade? Half ppr
    Traded Chubb and Christian kirk for Tyreek and Breida.. my wide receivers were Godwin, Ridley, John brown and curtís Samuel and my rb1 is Alvin kamara. My thinking was get a wr1 in a few weeks and dump Chubb before Kareem returns

    • What a BOOF

      What a BOOF says:
      (link)

      I don’t like that trade for you. I am generally of the opinion you should play for NOW in FF because things go 180 week to week, we cant predict so many things and adding time to the equation makes it even more chaotic

      Reek is 4 weeks MINIMUM from playing I believe, that’s an eternity in FF. Chubb is still like 6+ weeks from seeing Hunt join the team.

      Breida is nice but due to workload no more than a RB2 week to week. I still like Kirk and that offense will start scoring TDs the use is there.

      In a league that deep seems like RoJo is a hold, despite it looking bleak at the moment. Not sure who could possibly be a waiver upgrade with 180 players owned. Id drop him for like DRobinson tho

      Depends on team context but probably drop Howard

      Argument between Agholor and Drob is tough. Agholor likely to see more targets if BOTH Jeffery and DJax out, but that can change. DRob less opportunity but targets he gets are the best kind.

      In the near term:
      Agholor (based on volume) > DRob > Thompson

      Gore was a BOOF… I just missed adding him. Also Singletary’s injury seems light but Gore still an add in deep leagues. I think he’s a TD dependent RB3 like AP

      If you need an immediate start I guess that’s a worthwhile move. Follow any news out of KC today as McCoy is banged up as well as DW

      Can you drop a Kicker or Defense, add Gore and wait for more KC news? If one of the KC backs is out Id start Darwin over Gore…

    TE: oj Howard.

    I was thinking of packaging Jared Goff and AP for the jets duo (leveon/ty Montgomery)

      I think Goff/AP for LVB is a good deal on paper

      But I am a chronically QB agnostic and currently in a bind in a deep 2QB league where I lost Ben and Eli today. Even so Watson/Keenum is a rough duo and we have no clue what Rudolph will be so that’s a tenuous QB situaish… Id be wary of being that thin at QB

    In my 16 team, 6 pt passing TD league., I lost big Ben as my 2nd QB. Who is a better bench grab, Brissett, Rudolph or Danny Dimes? I think Brissett has the best supporting cast, but am hesitant to pull the trigger.

    • What a BOOF

      What a BOOF says:
      (link)

      Brissett or Dimes… call me crazy but I think I may prefer Dimes?

      Brissett is the most defensible but maybe its the hope of the unknown with Dimes/Rudolph

      Brissett if you want to be safe

      Rudolph or Dimes if you want the unknown ceiling. I’d have to give the edge to Dimes on draft capital and 2 awesome pass catchers vs. Rudolph really only one known elite receiver.

      • Pacochu says:
        (link)

        Wentz is my starter and being a 16 team league, I am thinking floor takes priority over ceiling. I’ve started 2-0, so I’m not desperate for upside and points at this time.

        Brissett has Hilton, two solid TEs and Mack as a supporting cast. His schedule isn’t terrible either.

        Danny Dimes has potential, but it’s hard to see him hanging big point totals this year. But It’s alluring to get the rookie on the squad.

      I think that’s a win for you yes. Get the elite player (Gurley no longer is)

        Adams or OBJ? Very mixed on this trade. Too thin at Rb after?

          Adams and OBJ are interchangeable. OBJ might have more week winning blowups. In PPR Adams should have one of the safest floors possible

          Personally I like having solid starting RBs and a bunch of high upside depth on the bench. The way I play I don’t value bench “depth” at all. Bench points don’t matter.

          So I’d always sell bench for a starter. Especially a stud and would worry about restocking bench lotto tickets off the waiver. But some people don’t like that fragility

    rotoworld has now twice reported that oj howard got zero targetsin week 2, i watched that whole thurs game, that’s b.s. he had ONE, but it was on his own pass inter penalty play, even though if THAT was a O pass inter, almost every play has an OFF pass inter.

    Great work What a Boof!

    I guess this question is applicable for 2 of my leagues…

    12 team PPR and 14 team and Std leagues…who is the better stash?

    Darwin Thompson or Justin Jackson?

    Thanks

    Hey bud – I was sent this trade offer in my 12-team standard; My AB for his Damien Williams & Duke Johnson.

    Full transparency, I’m a Jet fan & despise the Pats (& now AB)

    The other team also has Ekler & Zeke…would you try to get Ekeler instead of D Will & Duke?

      If you have AB I would hold for now… Damien and DUke is not a worthwuile return even if he gets suspended imo

      Getting Ekeler would be better and I think I would go for that to avoid the daily headache AB brings. I have no AB and am not looking to acquire him. He could win a league, but so can Ekeler who will still be a RB1 for 4-6 more weeks I think, and continue to be FLEX worthy after that
