There will come a time when you need to hit the waiver wire to pick up a replacement for your starter who is on his bye week.

When this moment comes, the worst thing you can do is drop a dependable player who either has contributed to your team’s success that season, or is a valuable asset that you can trade for more pieces.

Either drop a player with little to no value or just play that week without a starter at that given position. It’s not worth sacrificing long-term success for a one-week fill-in.
