The waiver wire offers an opportunity at every position. Lurking in the murky waters of fantasy free agents are the gems that can transform a roster with a lowly record to a fantasy champion. Below is a list of seven players you may want to jump on after their performances last week. Thank me later and don’t forget to follow STF on Twitter at @Snack_TimeFS for personal advice and more articles like this one!
Calvin Ridley: Ridley wowed the fantasy world with a breakout three-touchdown performance against the Saints last Sunday. Through the last two weeks, the rookie wide receiver out of Alabama has recorded over 60 PPR points and four touchdowns. To give you an idea of his production, his touchdown number is already more than Julio Jones caught over all of last season. Ridley might not pop off every week as he did versus New Orleans, but he’s worth owning in all leagues.
Antonio Callaway: Callaway regressed in Week 2 against the Jets, but I wouldn’t say it was all his fault. Callaway was wide open on numerous throws that Tyrod Taylor just flat-out missed him on. With Baker Mayfield now starting at quarterback for the Browns, Callaway’s production should pick up in Week 4. He needs to be owned in all formats.
Quincy Enunwa: Enunwa has been a huge target hog on the Jets and it doesn’t look like that is going to change. He and Darnold have great chemistry, and the rookie quarterback has peppered him with 29 targets over the last three weeks. This is most likely the last week you’ll be able to scoop him up, so I’d recommend doing exactly that.
Tyler Boyd: Boyd is the biggest sleeper of this week’s waiver pickups, but he’s seen his role in the Bengals’ offense gradually increase. He’s scored over 20 PPR points in each game over the last two weeks and Andy Dalton has been playing well. With a juicy matchup versus the Falcons in Week 4, Boyd is worth a start in deeper formats.
