Best Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Assistant

By Matt Schauf | July 2023

Make Waiver Wire Pickups that Change Your Season

Working the fantasy football waiver wire is vital to your season, no matter how well you draft.

There are always key performers emerging from that group of free agents. And even if you don’t have any big roster needs, you don’t want to just let your competitors snag those difference makers.

But the waiver wire can be a chore.

It’s constant—every week.

Whether you have just a single blind-bid waiver run, full-on first come, first served waivers, or anything in between.

And getting just one week wrong can mean you missed out on that guy—the season changer.

We want to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Introducing the Draft Sharks Free Agent Finder

We’ve built a waiver wire tool that does nearly all of the work for you – while still putting you in control of your team’s fate.

No more staring at all the potential waiver wire pickups and wondering which guy you should target.

Do I pick up the guy with the most points so far?
What about that dude who blew up last week?
Is there something I’m missing?

The Free Agent Finder is designed to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

How Does It Help Me Work the Waiver Wire?

It all starts with the same live sync that powers your Draft War Room.

Don't know about the Draft War Room yet?

That connection between your Draft Sharks account and your league-management site will keep working for you throughout the season.

When you power up your Free Agent Finder, that sync knows:

  • which players you have on your team
  • which players are already on another roster in your league
  • and which players are available

So before you make a bid or claim a player, you’ll get a fully – customizable – view of the free agent landscape in that specific league.

Find the Waiver Wire Pickups YOU Need

What do we mean by “customizable”?

Well, your Free Agent Finder will already know the scoring and roster settings specific to your league from that live sync we discussed.

That will customize the projections determining how your potential waiver wire pickups rank.

But we don’t stop there.

Sort by the category that fits YOUR need

What are you looking for on the waiver wire?

What is the best option for the rest of the season? A one-week fill-in? Maybe even a DST for next week?

We’ve got you covered. You can sort the available waiver wire pickups by any of these categories:

  • Our projection for the current week
  • Our ceiling projection for the week
  • Industry consensus projection for the week
  • Rest of Season projection
  • Consensus ROS projection
  • Positional strength of schedule for either of the next two matchups
  • Our projection for next week
  • Strength of schedule for the rest of the season

You can toggle between viewing only players available on your waiver wire and every player in your league. In case you want to get the full scope of that player’s ranking.

That’s more info than you’re likely to need in most cases. But we want to make sure you’re not missing a thing.

And we haven’t even gotten to the biggest time-saving feature yet …

Check the Waiver Wire in EVERY League

What happens when that RB injury news drops in the middle of an NFL week? Everyone rushes to the waiver wire to see if his backup is available.

If you play in more than one fantasy football league, good luck checking every wire before someone else in your league gets there.

We’ve fixed that problem with the Cross-League feature.

Simply select the player you want to search for. The Free Agent Finder will check every league you have synced on DraftSharks.com and let you know his status in that specific league.

Now you can jump to the correct waiver wire in time to snatch this week’s biggest riser. And then do it again wherever that guy is available.
