The draft is just phase 1, real fantasy champions dominate the waiver wire all season long, and navigating what is real and what isn't is no easy task. Fret not fantasy owners, that's what I'm here for! Now, every website on the internet that talks fantasy football has an ADD list, but I'm going to give you what you really need: A DON'T-ADD list. Plus, a buy-low and sell high candidate. Enjoy and keep on winning...
DON'T ADD #1:
Phillip Dorsett WR New England: He's a nice player, very quick, and he's a former 1st round pick. Plus, he's got Brady tossing him the rock. All well and good, except he's on an offense that has a bevy of options. Josh Gordon is their #1 in the red-zone, Edelman is their #1 in the intermediate, and Antonio Brown is a giant question mark. But one thing I do know about Brown, is that he's better than Dorsett. Expect his stat line of 4 catches, 95 yards, and 2 scores to be the outlier, not the norm.
Vernon Davis TE Washington: I know your tight-end probably sucks, but that's no reason to go make a useless pick up on a waiver wire Tuesday. Davis was filling in for the often injured Jordan Reed (won't be the first time, won't be the last time) but he was also playing under extremely emotional circumstances, after the passing of his grandpa who raised him. 50+ and a touchdown feels more like divine intervention at its best, not something to depend on regularly. 48 of his 59 yards came on one outstanding play where Philly was not interested at all in tackling him.
Darren Sproles RB Philly: He totaled 12 touches for the Eagles against the Redskins on Sunday and while he may have looked like the old Sproles at points in the game (even scampering for 47 yards on the ground) he's fools gold. The Eagles deploy a system where they use all 3 of their RB's and while Sproles will have moments where he vultures points from Miles Sanders, he won't be as effective as the rookie over the course of the season. Don't bother adding this headache of a lineup decision, given his limited upside.
Buy-low: Miles Sanders
Sell-high: Mark Ingram
Obvious add of the week: Hollywood Brown
