In this week’s WWWR, we’ve got THREE must-adds and I was darn close to adding a fourth (Gray). Bibee looks legit, the Dodgers may have a new closer and Hendriks is working his way back to the mound. Pirates a plenty as Deeper Dives too.

Players we’ve previously highlighted that continue to prove us right.
The Mid-Week Waiver Wire Watchlist is designed to provide insight into players that may be available in 10-12 team fantasy baseball leagues. Each week, I 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 as a possible player to target in trades. 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.
