The waiver wire... an extremely important tool that must be used by all fantasy teams no matter your level of experience. While there are a number of options available at the start of the season, as the season progresses, it becomes harder to find those diamonds in the rough.
Unless you are in a very shallow league, or you have some inexperienced fantasy owners, it is virtually impossible to find players off the wire that are matrix-like, that this, they fill-up the box score. Instead, you are better off working out 1-2 categories you want to be better off in, and then target accordingly. Perhaps you be looking to add someone on the last day to help you win a matchup.
In this article, we have identied five players you should target within each category (we have removed the %'s and turnovers from the analysis):
