Waiver Wire is our weekly look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Baseball Forum.

Add in all Leagues

Dexter Fowler COL | OF

I was very surprised to see that Fowler is owned in less than 70% of leagues. He has an average over .300, and he is in double digits with HRs, triples, doubles, and stolen bases. Fowler also has over 50 walks and RBIs, honestly I really don’t see what the issue is. He has recently battled an injury which his kept him from playing the field, but he is healthy now and needs to be owned in more leagues. (about 65% owned)

Brett Anderson OAK | SP

Anderson has one of the best young arms in the game, and he has been amazing since coming back from injury. So far in 20 innings of work he has only allowed 2 earned runs, and he has won all three of his starts. I doubt he will keep up this pace, but if you need any starting pitcher help for the stretch run I think he is well worth a look. (about 60% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Marco Estrada MIL | RP/SP

Estrada is almost 30 at this point, but he is starting to potentially breakout. He has never put together even close to a fantasy relevant season, however he has had an impress stretch for the Brewers. Estrada has been somewhat inconsistent, but in his last 3 starts he has only given up one earned run and has 27 strikeouts. (about 25% owned)

David Murphy TEX | OF

Murphy is finally an everyday player for the Rangers and he is making the most of it. It’s surprising that he is only owned in about 40% of leagues, but I guess after so many years of slightly above average numbers people aren’t buying it. While I am not completely buying into his .317 batting average, I think he is well worth an add in a lot of leagues. (about 40% owned)

Jordan Pacheco COL | OF/1B/3B

Pacheco is a guy that has been on our waiver wire list a few times, but he still isn’t getting much love in the fantasy world. Owners aren’t picking him up even though he is currently in the middle of a 14 game hit streak, in which he has raised his average almost ten points. This youngster has a lot of talent, and anytime you can find a guy batting over .300 with dual position eligibility they need to grab your attention. (about 10% owned)

Delmon Young DET | OF

Young is one of the streaker players in baseball, and he is currently on one of his hot streaks. If you have a slumping outfielder that you were thinking about cutting then I say make the move and ride out Young until he cools off. I don’t know if he will ever put together a full season of great production, but for now he isn’t a bad short term solution. (about 40% owned)

Pedro Alvarez PIT | 3B

The 25 year old third baseman for the Pirates has all the talent in the world, and if he ever puts it all together he could be a top five fantasy player at his position. He has been all over the place this year, but it seems like he might be starting to get things going. He had an amazing August, and his power numbers have been around all year. If you need more power at third base you might want to give Alvarez a look. (about 55% owned)

Jeff Bianchi MIL | SS

When you look at the numbers for the season for the young shortstop they aren’t that impressive, but I still like his upside. Before getting called up this year Bianchi was playing great in the minors. He doesn’t have a ton of pop, but he was batting over .320 with double digit steals. I am not expecting huge things from Bianchi, but the shortstop position is thin this year. So if you are looking for a high upside guy to take a gamble on then give Bianchi a look. (about 5% owned)

Add to Watch List

Jurickson Profar TEX | SS

It’s hard to believe that I am writing about someone that was born in 1993, but that’s the case with Profar. He was crawling around in diapers while the rest of us were watching Saved by the Bell and listening to Green Day. He burst onto the scene going 2-4 with a home run and a double, and he is someone that is worth keeping an eye on. For a guy that is only 165 pounds you wouldn’t think he would have much pop, but in 480 minor league at bats this year he had 47 extra base hits. (about 10% owned)
