Every fantasy player knows that the draft is just the start of the season. In fact, most leagues aren’t won on draft day, but rather with moves made during the season. Every Monday, Michael Beller and Brandon Funston of The Athletic will take a deep dive into the waiver wire on Wire to Wire. They’ll break down the players you should be targeting, helping you prioritize your waiver claims and get your FAAB bids in order. They’ll take a look at the week that was to discern which Sunday breakouts you should trust, and which were just one-week wonders. They’ll also turn their attention to the stream to find the best spot starters at quarterback and defense for the week ahead. For exclusive episodes on Fridays and 40% off a subscription, subscribe to The Athletic at theathletic.com/wiretowire.
