The key to winning fantasy football championships is the ability to identify players for the short and long term to help your team.
If you are struggling with bye weeks or players underperforming the waiver wire is a great place to start. It’s crucial that you find players to stop the holes on your team or your fantasy championship hopes will sink quickly. In this article, I’ll be breaking down some of the best players available on your waiver wire.
Taysom Hill, QB/TE, New Orleans Saints
Not only does Hill get TE eligibility, but he also can be dueled as a QB. And wouldn’t you know it, Hill is starting at QB on Sunday versus the Falcons.
Imagine being given the ability to start a QB at your TE position this weekend. Well, that’s what is happening this weekend. Take a look at how the community feels about starting Hill this weekend versus the Falcons.
Over 90% of people would rather start Hill over those 3 ahead. All of which are Top-12 TEs. Breaking down the matchup is useless at TE, because Hill is really playing QB.
Hill gets to square up against the dreaded Atlanta Falcons who boost the league’s 31st ranked secondary.
Not a single QB has failed to score less than 13.5 points this season versus the Falcons. Good news for Hill as that would put him in the range of the best TE in the league. The only player arguably that you could put ahead of Hill is Kelce.Tweet
Hill is worth a spot start on Sunday if you need a QB, his true value lines in the mismatch at TE in ESPN fantasy leagues.
