Each week of the NFL season, we will identify fantasy football waiver-wire pickups specifically for those of you looking for streaming options in deeper formats (including IDP leagues). These are players available in a majority of ESPN Fantasy leagues, who have enticing matchups in the week ahead that may make them worthy of consideration for your lineup.
Looking to make a trade but not sure where to start? New in the ESPN App, the Trade Assistant is a matchmaking tool which assesses your team needs and depth versus every other team in your league and suggests trades for fantasy managers to either propose or dismiss.
Most Traded Player: Joe Mixon (14,070 accepted trades)
Mixon is a very good player, but now is the time to exit the Mixon business. Yes, he posted a career high in fantasy points last week, but game script isn’t always going to be that favorable. In addition to his value peaking, the Bengals’ schedule profiles as pass-heavy game plans and that’s not how Mixon figures to pay the fantasy bills.
