Matthew Stafford, D.J. Chark, and Darren Waller have become reliable weekly starters in fantasy football.

NFL

We have reached the halfway point, for most fantasy football leagues, as the majority of head-to-head leagues end after Week 16.

While the team you drafted goes a long way towards how successful you are, the waiver wire can sometimes play just as large of a role.

Here are the top fantasy performers who, mostly, went undrafted. One quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted.

Fantasy Pros takes the average draft position of players from various well-known websites to draft from such as ESPN and Yahoo and averages them out. Players would be eligible for this list if their average draft position, from those websites, was more than 180 (180 players are drafted in a 10 team, 18 round draft).

1

Quarterback - Matthew Stafford, Lions

2018 was a down year for Stafford after he threw for between 4,257 and 5,038 yards every season from 2011-2017. Thus far in 2019, he has a stellar 4-to-1 touchdown to interception ratio (16 to 4) and ranks fourth in the NFL averaging 299 yards passing per game.

2

Running back - Chase Edmonds, Cardinals

Much of Edmonds’ damage came in Weeks 5-7 when he totaled five touchdowns (had 126 rushing yards and three touchdowns in Week 7 alone). Unfortunately for Edmonds, a hamstring injury suffered in Week 8 is expected to keep him out at least a few weeks according to SI.com.
