I cannot remind myself enough to ride out the studs because it's a long way to October. This applies much more to hitting than pitching, but if you spend alot of money or a high draft pick on a proven stud, remember... it is still April! With that in mind, if you can improve your roster or add to categories where you need help, the best pickups of the season do in fact come in April. I have already found myself picking up a player I had dropped prematurely and hope it is the last time. Now on to this week's waiver tips!
As standings in your league begin to take shape, remember it's a LONG way to October. Waiver wire advise is a tricky venture, as every league is different. Are you in a mixed league? 10 teams? 16 teams? Do you use FAAB to bid on players? Are you in a keeper league? There are so many factors to take into account. What we do each week is bring to your attention players that should be on your radar, then you can evaluate from there as it applies to your particular setup.
