Week 5 Waiver Wire

Bye weeks go through Week 12 this season, so securing depth on your roster this year is especially critical. The importance of maximizing every roster spot and transaction is magnified in Apex leagues, where deep rosters lead to a player pool that’s much more diluted than a standard league. Because of this, it’s time to get aggressive with your blind bid budget, if you haven’t already done so. With a quarter of the season over, opportunities to pluck game changers off of waivers are waning, and the later it gets, the less inherent value free agents will have. Read More »

Bye weeks are officially upon us, and with 6 teams out of action in Week 4, rosters are thin, especially in the super deep Apex format. With so few players available this week, I thought it would be best to highlight a few players that you should be seeking out and paying up for, rather than going with the normal “Pay For or Ignore” format. Most of these players were drafted and unavailable early on, but may have been dropped after disappointing starts to the season. Read More »

Throughout the fantasy season, I’ll give my top waiver wire pickups at each position along with suggested blind bid values customized for Apex Fantasy Leagues. Because we are focusing on Apex leagues, which have very deep rosters, a lot of the top waiver wire pickups from across the industry won’t be featured here, as the popular top pickups are unlikely to be available. Instead, I’ll dig a little deeper and try to highlight players that should be on the waiver wire in most Apex leagues. Read More »

Each week I’ll present my top waiver wire pickup of the week at each position, along with suggested blind bid values customized for Apex Fantasy Leagues. Apex has much deeper rosters than standard formats and because of the shallower free agent pool, owners should be willing to spend a higher percentage of their free agent budget on players that are likely to be appreciating assets.

Blind Bid Waiver Wire Strategy

Many fantasy owners are unfamiliar with the “blind bid waiver wire” system, but when compared to “first come, first serve” or “worst team first” systems it is by far the most fair and skill-based system to acquire free agents. Under the Apex format, the “blind bid waiver wire” period begins on Tuesdays at 8 am ET, and bids are processed on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET. After that, there are “first come, first serve” free agents until 1 pm ET on Sundays. There is no one formula to the perfect blind bid strategy, but there are some important factors to consider when deciding how you should allocate your bidding dollars.
