Waivers of the Future: Week 8 - Footballguys

Your guide to making preemptive waiver pickups in the context of dynasty fantasy football. 

Player value in dynasty football reminds me of watching ocean waves. They ebb and flow, always in a state of flux. Competitive dynasty players anticipate these movements before they happen and act by picking up, buying, or selling players as the situation demands. Dynasty general managers have previously been at the mercy of regular waiver segments to assist in dynasty pickups, but these fail to account for the long-term view necessary to dynasty success. This weekly column will focus on identifying assets that will help dynasty teams build for the future, as well as players that may plug a hole at a position of need on an otherwise strong squad.

Welcome to the Week eight edition of Waivers of the Future! Unfortunately, there were a few injuries and benchings across the skill positions in week seven that will have fantasy ramifications. On the flip side, if you need help at these positions, this will prove to be one of the more profitable waiver weeks for your team this late in the season. As the season wears on, don’t be afraid to be more aggressive with your bids if you need help. Unless your budget rolls forward to the next year, there’s no reason to hold back and wait for a better time to claim.
