It’s never too early to hit the waiver wire! Yahoo’s Andy Behrens and Scott Pianowski discuss pickups ahead of Week 1 and their bold predictions for the 2020 NFL Season!
Every week through the NFL season, Andy and Scott will comb through the waiver wire and free-agent lists to highlight players you should consider adding to your fantasy roster. Our pre-season pickups:
Preston Williams: With a narrow passing tree to battle for catches and early training-camp buzz, Williams could continue last year’s breakout.
Darrel Williams: Even the second-string running back in Kansas City’s high-powered offense will be worthy of flex consideration, and what if CEH flops?
Bryan Edwards: The rookie Raiders receiver will be called on early and often in the Vegas offense with Tyrell Williams hitting IR.
JJ Arcega-Whiteside: Despite last year’s debacle, another offseason could mean a breakout year.
And our bold predictions for 2020 — please don’t at us if these are wrong, they’re supposed to be bold!
