In this week’s WWWR, we have two starting pitcher debuts to drool over, a bat or two worthy of a bench spot, and then a bunch of players whom you should only roster if absolutely necessary. At this point in the year, it is increasingly more difficult to find impactful adds. Thank goodness for late-season debuts!

This weekly report is designed to provide insight into players who may be available on your waiver wire in a 10- to 12-team fantasy baseball leagues. Each week, we will provide a list of “Must-Adds” (ahem, 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 whom 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.
