be as far away from my face is possible.
Monique had give, had given me some market research and told me that has been too close to my face in the past.
Or at least it makes her a little uncomfortable.
A little self conscious, maybe a little skin action, little bit of blemishes.
Y'all can be seen about this close.
So gonna back it all the way up back here? Um, when I do my streams release, just try to get me as far away from you guys as possible when I'm doing these streams.
But that he hides for joining in.
My name is Cristian.
I'm one of the co founders of the Unwrap Sports Network.
As you can see, there is a U.
S and tag at the end of my name.
I'm a co creator of the Podcast network as well as a sports writer promotion platform.
We offer opportunities for contributors in the sports writing in sports podcast world, and we promote people on our sports network on our newsletter via Twitter and other forms of social media markets.
And we as well offer opportunities for people who, um, work alongside our network.
Some of them like SportsCastr.
So if you see other people on SportsCastr with the U.
And tag in and of their name, make sure to show love to them because they are a part of the great and wonderful thing that we have going on.
As you can tell right now, I think Corbyn is just like a hair's away from slipping into the top 25.
And when he does, we will have four people from the U.
S and four people.
Sorry and the U. S.
And Network on the top 25 for SportsCastr.
And that is a huge achievement.
I know that I have really, you know, when I really want to go to sleep like tonight, after trying to live and die in potential clients and trying to go home, go to sleep.
You know, I really woke up like you know what? These people need to hear my fantasy waiver wire pickups.
I honestly need to put claims, and because I have David Johnson, who is banging that might be banged up for a while.
Carry on Johnson, who's out indefinitely.
Um, Adam Phelan, who's heard, might be heard this week and out for a little bit longer.
So I need to put some waiver wire claims and just like a lot of people and in about half an hour there, about an hour and 1/2 where the **** you are cleans get processed.
So I want to give you guys the option to, uh, listen to what I say.
If you like it, you want to hear my reasoning behind that? Great.
Let's hop on the boat.
Um, you're in deeper leagues apply.
The 1st 3 picks will not apply to you.
I'm in a pretty competitive 12 man league.
And now that I'm looking down on this, I think outside, like to people like a 10 man list.
They're all in my league.
But I have the percentages and everything, and they are available in after the 1st 2 people, more than half the league.
So I imagine this content is going to be at least a pliable applicable for ah lot of you guys and honestly for myself in a couple minutes, I obviously did the research first.
I know I got time to place these claims, and but I wanted to get to get it to you guys first.
because, honestly, I feel like you guys were more important in your fantasy football than what I got going on.
What's up? Ah, yea, baby. A.
Thanks for joining the streams, given some Ah, fantasy football advice and waiver wire tips going into this week.
Ah, lot of injuries around the NFL.
So I imagine there's a lot of people in this, but with me, we're tryingto maneuver.
We did a lot of **** talking in the beginning of the season, and now we're going to back it up with some good waiver wire claims.
And the good thing is, there's a lot of players and a lot of these leaks who are very, very good and they're still available.
So I'm gonna hop in with the wide receivers first, and then we're going to float to the second email chart that I sent myself, and we're gonna go through the, uh, gonna go through the running back.
So let's hop right in.
And now I got a good amount of people going.
I'm just gonna go through the streams.
The 1st 1 Eye's Jamison Crowder Jamison Crowder is someone who, even in 10 man leagues, was probably drafted.
But when Aaron are Aaron Donald.
When Sam Darnold went down with the mono feely ****le Assis, he dropped in a lot of leagues because, depending on how thick your benches Luke Falk throwing to any wide receiver, didn't have a lot of value mean Even Lave Yon Bell took a massive hit and value during those weeks. So Jamison Crowder.
Now that same Donald is back.
It's still the best wide receiver on that team.
Obviously, if he had got dealt today, this would have been a much bigger waiver wire acquisition.
Ah, I know I didn't go over the I in one little stream about key to leave going, but honestly, there really wasn't anything with the trade deadline that impacted anything.
I mean, candy on Drake being the most impactful.
But I wasn't even at the actual deadline date.
That was well before that.
So I wish there is. Honestly, Cem.
I think most people that work or do any sort of content in the sports media market they were kind of hoping for a pretty eventful day.
That's why I feel like there's all these, you know, rumors that went around because I feel like a lot of outlets, understood there was not gonna be a lot of movement.
And just anyone taking a general phone call got reported on today from I don't have as much experience or have as many friends, the NFL.
But from what I've heard, a lot of these calls.
I mean, I had even heard a rumor that Tom Brady three years ago someone had called from the Patriots.
The Cardinals ask where the Cardinals would hypothetically, hypothetically give up to Tom Brady.
And I had heard that from, ah, friend of a friend who was involved in the NFL.
But I imagine calls that happened today just got more publicized because of the fact there was not much actually happening.
And I had seen people that have trusted sources that were saying that the Gemma Adams to the Dallas Cowboys was a done deal today.
And they had a walk.
Tractor statements, like 15 minutes later because they have said that.
Nope, that is not a deal.
Unless something happens drastically in the next 45 minutes, nothing is going to happen.
So very sad that the deadline wasn't as eventful, but for my Rams.
I mean, we made a move well before the deadline.
That was, in my opinion, the most impactful trade of this NFL season, and I'm just really excited to see him.
Hopefully, I would imagine we could give up.
Two first round picks were expected him to sign a contract extension.
I I just feel like that's implied, so praying he doesn't leave us high and dry.
I don't think you l A is a great city.
Our state income taxes stupid high compared Thio, Florida, which is nothing.
But I imagine there's a lot of things here in California and in Los Angeles that we offer that Jacksonville it doesn't, and it's gonna be worth that little bit to come here and stay with us.
So at least I pray I know I'm biased.
Philip Door set for the Patriots Yes, um, Mohammed Sunu coming in definitely takes a hit on his value.
You have to also remember that Josh Gordon is on the I R.
Or at least we'll be on the I R for a couple weeks before he's released and sent to another team out out of that via waivers.
Or someone could just signed him as a unrestricted free agent, but regardless, he's done currently.
The Julian Edelman, a calm Did you Corbin wrapped? He's a member of the faith, all respectable face, but the Ju Julian edema and he's one of my fair wide receivers.
I had to trade him to choir Julio Jones in a massive, massive deal, but he's still the number one on that team.
Mohammed Sunu now was the number two, but filmed or set the number three.
You have to think Phillip Dorsett was the number three with Josh Gordon.
He look at the number three that one week, Um, with forget his name Antonio Brown, such forgettable football player.
And then now he kind of has that same role.
So you tearing up the league as probably most effective number three wide receiver in the league, and he's still available in 52.
3% of leagues per the ESPN app.
Before I did this stream and that's a lot honestly, that's like basically every other person here, Um, it doesn't have a Hasim available in your league, and obviously I have to assume there's like baht leagues or there's like eight man league or a bunch of, like, big leagues that, um I mean, I've had it before.
You know, fantasy football is hard to keep up with weeks a week.
We have jobs, career side hustles, kids.
I mean, health concerns, other so many reasons for fantasy football teams to fall through the cracks.
But ah, player like that 50 52.
2% of leagues, that is just that's a lot.
And I would love I understand it's a useless thing, but to see just like what? These leagues of teams that don't have these, like really good people picked up like what's going on.
Their life has to be something I imagine.
I know I die grass from the point, but I was just with because I'm literally like I feel like in my league and competitive leaks people that end up being like a waiver wire pick like you have had him for like two weeks, like people kind of hit hit hit the people that they want to get, um, when they want to get them and it doesn't always take an injury like second or third.
Running backs, like came be spot can be spotted out like ways away So like I just these few couples, the first couple people, they've been taken in my league for a while.
That's why it's kind of always get kind of crazy.
Wonder why they are available.
Brown first round our second pick for the Tennessee Titans.
Ah, this past year, he was a really good it was him and d came back half an old miss.
I know d came back off.
I think, like 45 to the Seahawks, he's doing pretty well this year.
I would say slightly outperformed a J Ramberg.
Honestly, both pretty fricking good.
And I'm glad to see that.
Um, there was I think a little indie came back half.
He had the whole hype because of the shirtless stuff.
And then, um, it kind of came down to reality.
That Panther Princess.
Thanks for showing. Ah, Carolina. Great team.
Love. Christian McCaffrey.
Uh, I kind of feel like they need to figure out the whole Cam Newton situation.
I'm down for keeping them.
I like holler, uh, tells the column.
I like Kyle, and I think he's a great quarterback.
I don't think he really got to reach his potential in college because of Ah, Texas A and M and Tom Herman leaving Houston.
That's, Ah, College Day. We could talk about that.
Brown number three Wide receiver number four Danny Amendola.
Someone I started last week to defeat Perry, unwrapped in fantasy football.
5 and 1/2 point.
PPR was basically the all in the first half, but you can think of the Lions wide receiver corps kind of how, uh, the Patriots wide of the Patriots running back, or was in years past, where it's kind of a crap shoot in the sense that one of them is gonna pop off and ball.
You're just rolling the dice.
Most likely, it's going to be Kenny Golladay.
Just like most years, the past was like James White or whatever.
Um, the second most likely to pop off his Marvin Jones and third is Danny Amendola. But any Amendola.
You look at this week's like spaces like Hitler, Mrs like one on one off, one on one off.
So you definitely, definitely, like better off.
If you have a wide receiver room to add on your team, pick him up because if you're in a position like I was her Adam feeling goes down.
You know, I would have to throw him in there and I was like, ****, Marvin Jones did so well the week before.
Yeah, did scare me.
Maybe there was a change of the guard coming out.
Wide receiver, coastline.
Marvin Jones didn't play well.
I traded him off the hot week.
Golladay scored with the touchdowns.
Um, I think you have just a little bit more yards and Amendola.
Amendola had eight total receptions last week.
That's fricking baller like PPR.
That's that's cash money like Danny Amendola.
Don't ever think he was very good in the past.
He's messed, average of really good quarterback like don't overthink the Lions now that they don't have carrier jobs.
And I promise you, very good team.
Very, very slept on.
So next one is cold.
Obviously, I I don't want a stereotype, the small, like white wide receivers, but did you have a lot of value? Catch a lot of those unders and a lot of those slot routes.
And Cole Beasley, just like Danny Amendola, can soak up those targets, and Josh Alan.
Not like Matthew Stafford.
He's to depend more on the under.
Think Matthew Stafford goes to the under, chooses to hit the under more.
But Josh Allen is more if I have to hit the under.
That happens to be Cole Beasley.
So he's available in 32% of leagues, which is about, say, about one in every three people have him have someone in their league, has them on his team.
And going into this week, if you need some short term wide receiver help, I definitely think he's a plug and play this week.
Taylor Gabriel for the Bears.
Alan Robinson is, for sure, the number one wide receiver on that team.
But Taylor Gabriel.
He has the propensity to pop off, and you're looking for a boom or bust player.
I would 100% consider that if you really want to get crafty, you want to look at teams that have like you might be, and you really got a look at this.
This is like next level fantasy stuff, but we look at teams that have a really good pass defense.
You really have to look at what comprises their past defense that it's more from the safety of the cornerbacks and teams that have.
You know, you should look weak, weak.
Who's healthy If he's getting a matchup like, I'm gonna say Marcus Peters were to stay on the Rams.
And if you had someone who would lined up more, gets Marcus Peters, who is a boomer bus cornerback, you'll be more inclined to start someone like Taylor Gabriel because, you know, like, Hey, there's a good chance that he gets burned for at least one big route.
Yeah, he might get picked off.
So what? He's not throwing the ball? You're not losing points for your for your wide receiver.
You're taking someone like Taylor Gabriel.
I imagine you're in.
Hey, thank you, Panther Princess.
I appreciate you, Rivera praise this all, Um, but I would just imagine if you're playing Taylor Gabriel, you're in a situation where you need a boom or bust player years.
Someone's injured by week's Cooper Cup.
Actually, we're on a bye week this week.
****, really screwing me.
I am wide receiver you and they're both on a bye week against a team that's foreign four and really should be like one of the best teams in my leagues, and I need to get him out.
I need to make him lose.
So he does not make the playoffs and beat me in a couple weeks.
Next wide receiver on this list. Very Slaten.
Yes, he's only in 10% of leaves, but I felt like he was one top waiver wire.
Picks up pickups a couple weeks pick ups a couple weeks ago.
I'm sorry, guys.
Um, and now that yes, Golden Tate is there and Sterling Shepard is back.
And there was that whole one week where there was, like, literally no one was that the Patriots they played came a really played.
It was a week where they have literally no one.
And he was frickin amazing because going to have that long touchdown catch.
Other people got used a lot.
It was really cool fantasy Quagmire to see, Obviously not because injury, but a team that has to work around stuff like that.
Um, Chris Conley is my second to last pick.
The Jaguars get Nick Foles back, and I think that presents a situation that allows for a fantasy change of D.
Chart is in a really good job, but I think Dede, Westbrook and Conley more Dede Westbrook have the opportunity to flip on D J.
Shark and now actually get the advantage in that offense.
Because, yes, Carmen.
And then she was gonna hit the people he feels comfortable with.
Hey, what's up, National Love 95 that your Nationals fan Great game tonight.
I'm very happy for you guys.
Bryce Harper is sitting at home crying back to Chris Conley.
There is a very good chance that the wide receivers get mixed up on the Jaguars the next couple of weeks, when Nick Foles gets back, he's gonna be more familiar with certain targets over others.
And Gardner men shoot honestly as a backup quarterback just trying to make it work.
With Nick Foles comes back.
He's gonna have a whole new set of favorite targets.
Yes, deejay Shark is getting it used like he's been getting used in the past, But I think there is something to be said with a new quarterback coming in whom I have new favorites.
Last guy on my list is Josh Reynolds, because Brandin cooks is out with a concussion.
He came in last week and you did really freaking well, he's available and less than 1% of leagues.
Obviously, that's gonna change today.
I imagine you'll hop up to, like, 22% of leagues they're gonna buy this week.
Chance Brandin cooks does come back.
But I would err on the side of caution and think you're gonna get at least one good week with Reynolds.
Another thing to do is if you have, um, wherever your waiver wire situation shakes out to be, if you're in a competitively, you might want to get Reynolds on the waiver wire and then look to move him in a package of other picks to upgrade in a position.
Ah, fantasy thing that I like to do.
And so does Perry at Perry, unwrapped here, one of the co founders.
As I said before, he likes to do the two for one deals where you trade to assets, you get a better asset, and you also free up.
A captor has two caps based free of a roster spot for you, Then to go back to the way we're wired on someone else.
I'm a big fan of this thing.
It's a way to finesse your way into a slightly better position with a player and then get crafty once again on the waiver wire.
So we're gonna go back to my running backs, and I did.
Wide receiver is going to do running backs.
Not gonna do titans or quarterbacks.
As at this point this season, I feel like you're taking a shot on the the use napkin of the Football League.
Which is the time when people pick up weeks week and just kind of prayed like Jimmy Graham or someone like that that just like, as people put it, Carl Rudolph people that plug in when there's no one else.
Mason, Rudolph for quarterbacks, Justin, two quarterbacks are running backs and wide receivers was the most to important positions and fantasy football.
Unless you have the Patriots defense, then you are thinking that I am a big fat liar.
So for running backs, we have Alexander Mattison from the Ah Vikings.
Yes, stallion Cook Isa very good running back.
And he is, I want to say, the second or third top fantasy running back right now, but he has injury concerns.
He is banged up weeks a week, and he is in 55% of leaks he was drafted really high.
Some of those kind of side leading any destruction back out guys.
Someone like Alexander Madison, who, um, has the algae master was drafted really high.
Someone like Darwin Thompson, who had all that predraft hype.
Someone like Darnell Henderson from the Rams.
Some of them people.
Okay, they're going to back up, but they're going to get used, like as an integral part of this offense.
But it seems like they're starters have outpaced them for a little bit, and they've had a hard time really cracking that rotation with Henderson.
It's more because of someone like Malcolm Brown and because Eddie Lacy they're just giving the time for them to figure it out.
Hey, thanks, National love. Hi.
Appreciate It showed some national love.
Um, Madison, 55% of leaves, no brainer.
You get him because now he's getting used.
Maurin that offense and then to Duncan close back.
You have a potentially top 15 running back on your team that you got for a waiver wire.
Pick up 55% of leagues.
That's a no brainer. If he's available, go get him.
Shop any someone.
I had a trade away last week in a massive move to get Phillip Lindsay so I could stay someone playoff viable in one of my leagues shop any obviously, same kind of thing I talked about with Madison.
He sits behind a very, very potent running back, someone who was actually drafted in the first round so that I have talked negatively against in terms of drafting him at that position at that at that time, Um, but he hasn't been used as much as Chris Carson, who was drafted lower than him out of Oklahoma State.
Some of that whipped my ass in college.
More my defense and me and Plato line.
But Shaw Penny, he's just a heartbeat away from being a top 15 running back in the NFL.
The Seahawks use it just crazy.
I and now that he's back and healthy, he stands to control and dominate that backfield.
Next one is Mark Walton and Mark Wallace.
Strictly on usage, Kenyon Drake has gone.
That offensive line is horrible, but Ryan Fitzpatrick likes to use his running backs, and he seemed to use Wall pretty good in that Steelers game.
So look for him to be someone that is completely just a usage pick and that it's someone that necessarily doesn't have talent or plays on talented TV.
You know they're going to get that W E r K work Next one is Rex the ***y Birkhead.
I've talked about this in the past.
Ah, my little doggy.
They're just running around the Patriots backfield, as it always has been, as it always will be a time share our BBC, whatever you want to call it.
Yes, Sonny Michelle is the best running back.
What is the best pass catching running back? But people like Boldin and people like Rexburg had definitely owed a good amount of real estate in that offense.
And if you're in a position like I say, what Taylor? Gabriel? Hey, you need to sort of boomer bust player ***y.
Rex Burkhead is gonna be the guy that you want to put in there that you feel good about more so than people at the bottom of my list.
But seriously, I cannot speak enough about Rex Burkhead.
He just even the Patriots running backs.
Yes, do not draft them high, but they are definitely pieces on the waiver wire.
If you need to take a shot.
You should feel comfortable taking a shot with them because there's a good chance that that week that they are called upon more so than you praying that someone like I did of bending Snow last week, who, literally, if he just didn't Fudge is knee up would have had a pretty good fantasy game, given the opportunity.
Darius guys, 33% of leagues.
The only reason why I put him on here was because if your league doesn't have an I R spot, I think you could justify have dropping him way back.
When Chris Thompson, Adrian Peterson really dominating that backfield for the last eight weeks, they've looked really good.
Chris Thompson got her did not play last week.
It looks like he is going to play this week.
Um, the 33% of leagues.
I fire sale the person and we have a lot of fire Spartz spots in our league.
But I know another league.
We have no IRS spots, so that's the reason why I put him on this list and that's what I think.
If he is available, you should go get him.
You'll be an integral part of your your playoff push.
You top 25 running back for the rest of the season.
One is a Rahim moisture.
Definitely a big boomer bus target. Definitely.
Touchdown or bust type guy in that offense.
Old reason why he is on your two is map.
Rita has a really bad ankle sprain, and I originally wasn't gonna put him on here, but someone who actually is an amazing job on here in the student Doc usn Ah, he is ah, gentleman who was in medical school.
I'm not mistaken.
And he had posted a photo of him actually injuring three foot and used a whole bunch of special a dorsal angle, whatever.
But he actually like explained it and with the way the ankle was planted, I do not think he's gonna play this week.
I would go with moisture if you get a boomer bus running back.
Caleb Lodge on the same vein is waltz in that they're gonna get just crazy, high usage.
And if you're in a deep league or you're looking for someone to stash to play as a flex play in your playoff could be a very viable option, especially with Wallace, if he gets injured and there's a good chance that he just out touches Walton.
I know it was last year I had been lodged in a very deep league and he was very spare, like, very serviceable in that offense.
Behind can no drink.
Last one is Boston Scott.
He is in less than less than 1% of the league's.
I don't even know what to make of this.
I've seen him on a lot of lists on the graphic that I have.
It says He's on the Eagles.
I thought I was under the impression that he was the Detroit Lions running back that actually got used more then either JD McKissick or Johnson last week.
So I think I might just be looking.
I'm going to be tricky myself.
But if I think about the right guy, they're running back for the Detroit Lions got way more carries than either of the two biggest waiver wire fantasy pick ups last week.
It waas something interesting to see.
Obviously, carry on Johnson, who I'm going to change my team name toe.
Carry on without me.
Please tell me if That's a good name, if not.
Ah, hey, I think that's a movement busting, in my opinion, um, but Dr Boston Scott think this is the gentleman that I'm thinking of from need short lines.
He severely outpaced any of their other running backs.
And like the other two picks with the Dolphins players, usage is very important.
And he's someone going forward.
Matt Stafford as your quarterback with a wide receiver by committee with their wide receiver corps.
You should definitely pick him up.
There's a good chance that Stafford gets him all the way down the field and he gets him into the end zone.
So I actually feel more comfortable with him and some of the other picks on this list, and he's less than less than 1% of league.
So thank you guys so much for going through this list with me.
Obviously, the running backs.
I think they're a little more of ah kind of a shot in the dark this week, but I was in her Madison Rashad pending.
If they're in your league, you need to stash them right away there in a dynasty league.
They should already be on your team but really exciting list is the first time I had done waiver wire pickups and additions on SportsCastr.
I kind of just do them.
I would my friends, you know, and family members who consult me for fantasy.
But it was really cool to get a little good, like, 2030 minutes talking to you guys and, uh, get a good stream going to thank you guys so much.
I appreciate the love from national love 95 year, the Best and Panther Princess.
I appreciate you guys love so much You guys keep encouraging me to keep putting out this content and honestly, had a great time.
How to really? I've been working from, like, seven AM toe 11:10:30 p.m.
Here on the West Coast and I was really just looking forward to doing this stream.
I know I had I'd watch the Laker game like I was trying to, like, talk Thio, touch a cli and, like watch Laker game over the corner and, like better on my phone and like, still be respectful trying to make my money, But I want to do Lakers Stream to I think I'm just gonna wait for the morning to talk about Anthony Davis is 40.
20 rebound performance that is just makes me so excited at number four.
I tweeted before I got on this stream.
I had said that I don't know what I appreciate more of my three college degree from Louisiana or getting Anthony Davis from the pelicans.
I don't know what Louisiana did more for me.
I don't know if it did the education part more.
Forgive me, probably my favorite basketball player going forward in the next, hopefully decade with the Lakers.
So catch me in the morning and do an N b a stream.
But I wanted to get your waiver wire picks out there so you can place in claims in the next couple of minutes.
But thank you guys so much.
I appreciate you have a great night and see in the morning
