Thank goodness for non-bye weeks, right? Or, maybe not.
Injuries are still a huge factor this year and have affected some of the best players in the league. But even though these things can suck the life right out of your team, you deal with them and move on because, hey, this is fantasy football—not fantasy badminton.
Hopefully you stashed a little depth on your squad that you can just plug right in there—but what if you didn't?
This is where the all-important waiver wire comes in handy, and why you need to know exactly who is worth picking up and who you can safely drop.
At this point, most of the players on lists such as these are guys who are highly unlikely to be available, but may have been dropped in your league for whatever reason or are simply out there on the wire by sheer chance.
