Dumpster Dives: Deep Waiver Pickups for Week 1

Fantasy Football is back! While your home team gears up, you’re stocking up on carbonated beverages, pizza and wings, and excuses to avoid church for the next 17 Sundays. But more importantly, your fantasy league draft is in the books and your Week 1 matchup is creeping up. If the final few practices cause a key piece of your team to pull a hamstring or break a pinky toe, Dumpster Dives is here for you. Or if you just aren’t feeling that last round flier pick you made, we’re here for you in that case as well. Every week I scour the bottom of the waiver wire and look for upside players with ownership around or below 10 percent. For those of you in deeper leagues or dynasty leagues with deep benches, the Dumpster Dives will be more actionable than your typical Waiver Wire column.
