Mid-Week Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 6

In this week’s WWWR, we’ve got THREE must-adds again thanks to three highly touted MLB debuts! We’ve got a highly sought-after and drafted outfielder who was so bad to start the year he was dropped just about everywhere, reset in the minors, and is now back. Plus we’ll talk about some vets that you know and may be surprised to find on your minors. Finally, we have yet another Pirate.

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


This weekly report is designed to provide insight into players who may be available on your waiver wire in a 10-12 team fantasy baseball league. 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 trades. Double-Downs are players that have previously been mentioned and 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.
