Which Drive Waiver-Wire Pickups Should You Add?

There is one negative fantasy football stat that you don’t want to hear, especially with the Dolphins receiving targets in slot: Field goals. Jason Sanders has struggled making the kicks, with his longest being a 44-yarder in Week 2. He is 6-for-9 on field goals made but his accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. Here is a good depth point in the kicking game, could you use a kicker from an already average roster?

It may be tough to sit him based on three field goals in his career, but then again, he’s just hitting nearly 61 percent of his attempts, which isn’t bad given the circumstances.

So, by removing him from your squad, could you include the handcuff with an option you are very familiar with? Keep in mind, both drives to great depth in your squad, with Anthony Fasano and Brandon Fields being your top backups.

Sanders isn’t good, but he hasn’t been bad either. He’s a 30 percent conversions rate kicker.

Getting to Eagles GA-9 Allen Barbre – If you are not already using Barbre due to consistent struggles, grabbing him here on waivers would be a good idea. He’s owned in just 36 percent of all leagues and plays for a QB who isn’t having an ideal year. Barbre has the power, runs effectively in the zone blocking scheme, and flashes the ability to get through his blocks and get decent yards after contact.

Saints G-30 Larry Warford – We haven’t seen much from him, but if you are needing a long-term replacement there, he’s a solid candidate.

Quality Day – Another quality rental and likely a valuable waiver add in 2019. It won’t do you much, but he should be able to help you with short yardage.
