NFL Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Transactions for Week 6 (2014)


As customary, If you’re a struggling NFL fantasy football owner, F&TS provides specialized fantasy football advice. One of the ways we help owners on our site is to analyze our league’s weekly fantasy football waiver transactions. We look for trends and insights. You can learn a lot about your opponents’ priorities by paying attention to who they add to their teams. Do they need additional playmakers or are they looking to score points by switching defenses?

If you’re not paying attention to our league weekly waiver wire, that’s part of the problem. The rules are simple. Every Wednesday, owners can add new players to their rosters. Owners put in a claim for an available player based on their priority ranking. For example, if you are ranked tenth in a 12-owner league, you must wait for nine other owners to pass on your selection before adding that player to your roster. This is called “clearing waivers.” Of course, in order to add a player to your existing roster, you have to eliminate a player from your lineup.


Fantasy Football Players On The Move

There were definitely some interesting fantasy football moves this week. For example, Team Marin waded deep into the waiver wire waters to try to find another productive running back. He added Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell to replace Donald Brown of the Indianapolis Colts on his roster. In other interesting news, New York Giants hater “The Commish” added talented rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to his roster. OBJ replaces the Jacksonville Jaguars Allen Hurns. In one of the more surprising moves of the week, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd was waived by Team Weiss.
