Well we are (nearly) done with the fourth week of 2022 action, so time to finetune your roster with our Week 5 Waiver Wire pickups. Making the right moves on the waiver wire is how you can really win your league. Getting those upside-depth pieces, and cutting the players that are going to struggle from your roster is going to help you going forwards
Rules for Selection & Order Priority
For a player to be considered to be added, they have to:
- Have an rostered % of 50% or under on ESPN
- Players below are listed by their roster %, not priority. Know your league settings. If there is a high-priority add, you’ll know.
Jared Goff (DET) @NE 44.1% rostered
I said to a friend last year that actually Detroit and the Rams got the QBs they needed. Goff has really performed in Detroit, especially for fantasy. The Lions offense has been performing all season, and Goff has developed a good relationship with his receivers. Next up is a Patriots defense that can be beaten.
Matt Ryan (IND) @DEN 16.2% rostered
Ryan really needs to stop these turnovers. So far this season, he has turned the ball over at least once in every game- and actually totals 8 so far. The Colts offense seems like it is starting to find itself, and next up they face the Broncos secondary which has struggled with injury.
Others to Consider
- Ryan Tannehill (TEN) @WAS 15.4% rostered
- Zach Wilson (NYJ) v MIA 9.2% rostered
