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...
Ty Johnson RB Lions: If you're desperate at RB, this does not apply to you. If you're desperate at that position, anyone with a pulse is worth picking up. If you're looking for long-term success, Johnson doesn't provide the upside that a guy like Chase Edmonds or Latavius Murray does. The Lions haven't really committed to the run as much as we thought they would. Matt Stafford is throwing the ball, on average, 35 times per game...and Kerryon Johnson is in the bottom half of the league in regards to rush attempts. Ty is a nice add if you need it or if you have space, but don't drop just anyone to pick him up.
Ryan Tannehill QB Titans: Ryan finished the week with the 6th most passing yards on the week. Surpassing names like Goff, Brady, Wilson, and Dak. And he did so while tossing 2 TD's, pretty nice outing for the former 1st round pick. But I'm not buying it, and for obvious reasons. Just because he played better than Mariota and the team saw a little boost, doesn't mean it's sustainable. The Titans play the Bucs, so I know it will be tempting...the Bucs are allowing the 7th most points to the QB position, but don't take the bait!
Mark Walton RB Phins: I know he's a RB, but I'm not going to sign off on this no matter your situation. The Dolphins are so bad and they so regularly find themselves in situations where throwing the ball makes no sense. Presumably, the Phins are going to move on from Kenyan Drake in their year of tanking, and I'll give Walton this, he's better than Kalen Ballage. But, he's still on the Dolphins, I'll pass.
Buy-low: Le'Veon Bell
Sell-high: Austin Ekler
Obvious add candidate: Mohamed Sanu
