Week 5 Waivers Suck, Start Trading to Contend
Welcome to Redzone Redemption‘s Week 5 waiver episode. Your Host, Shane Barrett, is joined by guest host Nate Polvogt. As usual they do waivers, starts and sits, and trades. The waiver options for week 5 suck, so to keep contending in Fantasy Football you need to Start Trading. Nate and Shane give you plenty of targets throughout the episode and try to help you with your starts and sits decisions.
Each segment of waivers, starts/sits and trades is broken down in the episode, so you can jump around as needed.
Starts/Sits: 25 min 10 sec
Trades: 51 min 4 sec
For Waivers, we discuss each player based on a Free Agent Auction Bidding budget. If you do not use that you can consider your high-priority waiver targets the first players. Spend wisely, but do not be afraid to spend your FAAB budget on players.
High Priority Waiver (20%+ of your budget)
Shane: Corey Davis 29% Sleeper, 6.9% ESPN 25% Yahoo
Nate: Will Dissly 3% Yahoo, 2% ESPN, 5% Sleeper
