WAIVER WIRE WEEK 18
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
If your fantasy football championships are set for week 18, I just have one thing to say, May The Force Be With You! Hopefully your team has a lineup of players that are on teams still trying to secure a playoff spot. If your team has players that are going to be rested, because they already have a secured playoff spot, then you have your work cut out for you. So Week 18’s waiver wire may have players that can help push you to the finish line and secure your championship. However, you will need to do some research to make sure which players will be playing and which will be sitting.
We have put together a list of some of the players that we like their matchups and feel good about their playing status in Week 18.
