This week, we’re diving into the deep end of the fantasy football pool. We have compiled a list of five potential waiver wire targets for those in deeper leagues. These players are currently rostered in a maximum of 4% of leagues, providing both short and long-term value to your team 🏈.

To start off our list is Craig Reynolds from the Detroit Lions. Despite being relatively unknown until recently, his performance on the field has been turning heads. He’s shown promise as an all-around back with rushing and receiving skills that could prove valuable if given more opportunities.

Next up is another running back who might be flying under most people’s radar – Marlon Mack from Indianapolis Colts. While he may not be starting material right now due to Jonathan Taylor’s dominance, it would only take an injury for him to step up and potentially provide RB2 numbers.

The third player on our list comes from wide receiver territory: Darnell Mooney of Chicago Bears. With Justin Fields taking over at quarterback, there could be increased opportunities for Mooney going forward this season.

Moving onto tight ends – Dalton Schultz from Dallas Cowboys makes it into our top five picks this week due to his impressive recent performances which have seen him become one of Dak Prescott’s favorite red-zone options.

Finally rounding out our top five is New York Jets’ defense/special teams unit (D/ST). Although they’ve had their struggles early in the season, they’ll face some less potent offenses later on which should give them ample opportunity to rack up points through sacks and turnovers.

Remember these players are widely available but also carry risk – hence why they’re likely free agents in your league! They can provide depth or fill-in duty during bye weeks or injuries though so don’t overlook them just because they aren’t household names yet!

It’s important when considering these waiver wire pickups not just looking at their past performance but also analyzing their upcoming matchups. Some players might have tough schedules that could limit their production, while others may be primed for breakout games against weaker defenses.

In conclusion, the waiver wire can be a gold mine if you know where to look. It’s not always about getting the biggest names but finding those hidden gems who can provide value when it counts most. So don’t sleep on these potential pickups – they just might turn out to be your team’s secret weapon!
