The Fantasy Edge Week 5: Waiver Bazaar


This week on The Fantasy Edge Week 5 we examine plenty of waiver selections available and sought after a week of heavy injuries and surprise performances.

Kevin Huo returns this week with Richard Savill and special co-host AJ Applegarth of the Fantasy Six Pack Hour joins the show.

The guys look at the Patriots at Buccaneers game. The game was particularly interesting because Doug Martin returned from suspension and the surprise late scratch of Rob Gronkowski.

Alex Hamrick joins the program with his starts and sits of the week.

Tyler Thompson delivers his Stream-o-Matic defenses for Week 5.

Richard, Kevin, and AJ also look at players rising, headaches, waiver possibilities for Week 6 and sleepers of the week.

Plus all the fantasy news, views, and stories from around the NFL.

In this podcast we discuss:


Patriots 19 at Buccaneers 14

The story of this boiled down to the futility of Nick Folk, the Bucs kicker, where his missed field goals limited his team in the ability to rally for a win. Doug Martin returned and scored, but Gronkowski sat out with a practice injury. Amendola, Hogan, and Cooks all scored well at least for PPR leagues. DeSean Jackson produced 100+ yards for the Buccaneers.

Heavy waiver weeks

How do you prioritize a heavy waiver week like the one just past? There were so many players with seminal pick up value, sorting out the best choices was a taxing effort for many fantasy owners. What’s the best way to approach weeks like this?

Jaron Brown, WR, Cardinals

An unlikely emerging receiver on the Cardinals. Is Brown set to overtake the number two spot from John Brown. Is J.J. Nelson fading or is this a case of week gameplan shuffles?

Amari Cooper, WR, Raiders

The fantasy woes continue for Cooper and he was not helped by the injury to Derek Carr. None of the Raiders skill players were. When do we draw the line?

All this and much more on The Fantasy Edge…
