Every year impact fantasy football players fall through the cracks on draft day. That’s why you need to be on top of the waiver wire even before Week 1 begins. We have a few options for you to consider adding to your team to start the season.
Winning fantasy football teams are created through the waiver wire.

Having a strong bench filled with players that have upside and potential is crucial. Filling the bench with all of the backup players to your starting lineup is a good strategy.
