Mid-Week Waiver Wire Watchlist for Deeper Leagues

In this week’s WWWR, we’ve got a lot of veteran bats and arms proving they’ve still got it and deserve a roster spot. Only one young pup makes the list this week (Pratto) and I toyed with putting him in as a must-add based on how well he has been playing.

Players we’ve previously highlighted who continue to prove us right.

TOO SOON! Double-downs will begin in June once we have a larger sample size.

This weekly report is designed to bring your attention to players who may be available on your waiver wire in fantasy baseball leagues of various sizes. Each week, we will provide a list of “Must-Adds” (ahem, players who shouldn’t be on the waiver wire) as well as some “Deeper-Dives” who should be considered to fill a specific need or to plug an open roster spot. Anyone mentioned on the “Deeper-Dives” list should be considered a must-add for deeper leagues (15-30 team leagues) or could be considered a possible player to target in trade. Double-Downs are players who have previously been mentioned that should be considered in all formats. It should be noted we will never repeat a player from previous reports as a “Must-Add” or “Deeper-Dive”. Generally speaking, players on this list will have a consensus ownership of 25% or less.
