49ers RB JaMycal Hasty seemingly came out of nowhere and is now one of the hottest waiver wire pickups this week However, you likely would have been ahead of the game and had Hasty on your roster (or at least on your radar) LAST WEEK if you were a Rotoworld Premium subscriber.
Our Premium Season Tools are stuffed with information that'll keep you in the know and help you make the right roster moves from now to the final game of the season. All season long we've offered up looks at these, which can be found in the Rotoworld Premium EDGE+ Roto package, and Week 8 is no exception.
Designed to provide the knowledge you need to make the perfect lineup decisions in a variety of league formats — from weekly rankings, rest-of-season projections and exclusive expert columns to our trade analyzer, lineup tools and our newest feature in League Sync — we're confident that this is the finest edition we have ever produced.
This week we are taking a sneak peek at the Dynasty Waiver Wire column, which identifies players who are worth adding in deeper dynasty leagues. However, no matter how deep your league is or how large the rosters, this column will provide you with valuable intel about some lesser-known players and sleepers your opponents might not even know about yet.
Here is a snippet from the RB section:
Carlos Hyde, SEA (11%)
Lamical Perine, NYJ (16%)
Jamycal Hasty, SF (19%)
Eno Benjamin, ARI (0%)
DeeJay Dallas, SEA (0%)
Week Seven was another slate full of injured running backs, offering dynasty players multiple waiver wire targets. First, Seattle lost RB Chris Carson to a foot injury. He was replaced by veteran RB Carlos Hyde, who ran for 68 tough yards and a touchdown on his was top a top-15 fantasy rank. Carson is considered week-to-week, leaving Hyde to be the bell-cow back in one of the league’s top offenses…The Jets finally gave rookie RB Lamical Perine increased playing time and he responded with 55 total yards and a touchdown, more than doubling the snaps of veteran RB Frank Gore…The 49ers once again were banged up in the backfield as RB Jeffrey Wilson suffered an ankle injury that already landed him on the injured reserve. That leaves RB Jerick McKinnon, who was hardly involved in Week Seven, and underrated rookie RB Jamycal Hasty, a trendy pickup in many dynasty leagues. Hasty popped with 57 rushing yards on just nine carries last week…The Cardinals also lost their starting RB as Kenyan Drake is expected to miss a few weeks with a bad ankle. RB Chase Edmonds will take over as the starter, though he is already rostered in most dynasty leagues. Instead, target rookie RB Eno Benjamin, one of the most intriguing prospects in this class. Benjamin was once considered a top-five back in the class before injuries slowed him down. Benjamin doesn’t have an NFL touch yet but he is worth adding this week as he could serve as Edmonds top backup…Another rookie back moving up the depth chart will be Seattle’s RB DeeJay Dallas. With veteran RB Travis Homer also exiting the team’s Week Seven game with an injury, the depth chart is suddenly thin with Hyde and Dallas.
