Rolling Waiver Wire WK6: Tipster’s IDP Targets
Welcome to the Tipster’s Rolling IDP Waiver Wire Targets tracker. Where he puts pen to paper and applies decades of fantasy football knowledge to work. We’ll never know what the Tipster is coming up with next to innovative fantasy football again. So sit back and let’s see what he has in store for us with his 2021 defensive player rolling waiver wire tracker tool. The Tipster loves to dive deep into the waiver wire for bye-week purposes when it really counts. So for the first few weeks, these defensive players may or may not be available in your league. It would all depend on the format and how deep the lineups are. With this said, here are some target options for this week’s waiver wire.
To mean anything to IDP fantasy football owners a player has to have consistency. And that is the one thing we need to figure out during our waiver wire process in this rolling chart. At least if we want more than a bye-week play. So we’re going to combined consistency with opportunity and resent success together. Along with player scenario and talent. With that said, here’s the rule of thumb every IDP owner should approach the waiver wire with. At least if you are wanting to dive deep and use the “vanilla” players at the same time.
” A Player has to be consistent enough for at least three weeks to consider holding on to them. And we do mean in a row performance that made an impact. No exceptions and no mercy in evaluations.”
- Our target dates are results on Monday and the new Waiver Wire add-ons Tuesday.
- MSR: Position Match-Up Strength
- ROS: Rest Of Season Outlook
- A player that failed can always return to our list if the scenarios are right and they are worthy of starting the three-week cycle again.
- Watch for some ( * ) by player names. Some might deserve a follow-up located below the rolling waiver wire list.
- Going forward we will not give players a pass if a minor injury during a contest hurt their progress. 90% of the time they’ll never work out. And if they were to make an impact again we’ll simply add them back and start over. We run a tight ship when determining ROS results. And along the way find serviceable bye week and injury replacements as a bonus.
- Players are added after they catch our attention. So their week one is the week they just played and produced accordingly to catch that attention.
- Remember, we only add players that have at the least a solid MSR (Match-Up Strength) for the next contest. So if you were looking for names of overachievers from last weekend’s games. They likely didn’t make the cut on MSR or SCR (Snap Count Rating). Or even NFL life reasons that we’ll let play out.
Now entering the portion of the season with bye-weeks we are changing things up. We need to have a deep list. And will now consider any IDP player with a lowish ownership rate according to ESPN and MFL fantasy football sites. And has a solid to strong MSR for the upcoming contest they are added to our list. We’ve rolled through some players and now we need to be able to recycle with what we’ve learned in many cases. If you were expecting to see a certain player on this list and isn’t. The odds are his scenario for the following contest isn’t right (enough) to be under consideration at this time. It’s all about getting the right plays at the right time now and not just based on a player’s consistency when the chips are down.
WK6 Player Pool
Our WK6 player pool is lower than what we would ideally have. He had a high turnover of players failing in WK5 and eliminated those graduates with weak MSR’s in WK6 on top of it. Our player pool will certainly grow over the next couple of weeks.

- Quincy Williams still looks the part as s good option. Pending his MSR we’ll post Tuesday. All his owners need to remember is LB Jarrad Davis will be coming off the I.R. t some point. And he’ll likely reclaim his job as a starter.
- Anthoney Walker had help making our list after returning from the IR and getting a contest under his belt in WK5. Now likely back up to game speed we should see more of a full-time amount of snaps.
- Damien Wilson had help making the list based on the news he’ll be wearing the green dot going forward which should translate into more opportunities and time on the field.
- Derrick Brown should likely only be considered in deeper formats. Don’t expect more than 4 or so combined tackles.
IDP Waiver Wire I.R. Tracker
Why would we want to track defensive NFL players on injured reserves? There are a couple of good reasons off the top. First, at least in deeper formats. Managers knowing when a potential IDP producer is coming back into play can be sneaky. Players get dropped in some leagues that other injured players took priority.
This leads us to the second thing. And that’s in deeper formats or on rosters struggling to pick up a player off the waiver wire one week early. After all, we all can’t be first in line for the free agents each week. Putting managers way ahead of their league mates. Not to mention that if you miss out on that week’s active waiver wire options, you still have a viable target to stash.
- No Covid Tracking.
- Not listed in any particular order within pick-up status.
- Be careful using a player directly off the waiver wire. Not always played 100% the first week back.
- Hot means the player is likely to have a role worth something coming off the wire sooner than later.
- A “Hottish” pick-up status indicates a move early has a “Hot” upside.
- Notable indicates likely low priority IDP Target for the waiver wire.
- Pick-up status henges on a player being activated by the team. Mr. Long will track that for you week to week.

Did you Know…
A “breakout” player is a fantasy football person who has been ineffective or marginal in the past. Then suddenly becomes a fantasy football stud one year. A “sleeper” is a term used mostly during drafts. The term refers to players that fantasy managers believe are set to have a breakout season. The word “sleeper” comes from the idea the player is being overlooked. And so is their potential of breaking out that season. – Google
